Book A Luxurious Holiday at Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road
Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road is a five-star branded boutique hotel themed around the crossroads of heritage and modernity. Wireless Road is considered the birthplace of Thailand’s radio and broadcast industry, as it was the location of the nation’s first broadcast station.
The hotel welcomed its first guest on January 8, 2015 as the first Hotel Indigo in Southeast Asia.
Hotel Indigo in Bangkok is located right in the heart of the cosmopolitan yet very local area of Wireless Road, also known as Embassy Row thanks to the over 20 international embassies in the neighbourhood.
Most notably, Hotel Indigo Bangkok is directly across the US Ambassador’s residence, allowing guests staying in rooms at the front of the building to enjoy uninterrupted, gorgeous views of its grounds.
As part of the Hotel Indigo brand identity, every Hotel Indigo has a unique design and theme that is inspired by the flair of the neighbourhood the property is located in.
With the overall building designed by Architects 49 and interiors designed by HBA Singapore, Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road’s theme is “the golden age of broadcast” and the contrast between Wireless Road in its retro heyday and its present modernity.
You’ll find authentic vintage TVs, radios and other broadcasting equipment turned into feature design elements throughout the hotel. Most notably in the lobby and along the radio wall in front of the lift landing. In front of the hotel, the fountains have a flowing metal design that were inspired by sound waves. The panels behind the lobby check-in counter also light up to resemble sound travelling. The brick staircases from the 24th Floor to the 26th Floor have two accent walls as well, one featuring assorted cookery items and another a pop-portrait of a famous Thai beauty queen from the 60s.

Hotel Indigo Bangkok Accommodation
The most important question you have to ask yourself when reading a Hotel Indigo Bangkok review is, “what type of accommodation would I like to book for my holiday.”
Over 70% of the hotel’s 192 rooms boast their own private balcony, a rarity in central Bangkok hotels, and floor to ceiling windows add light and space.
Vintage meets modern in the design of the guest rooms and guest floors. There are up-cycled shelves featuring elements from long-gone drinks brands in the hallways and reclaimed wooden doors with license-plate inspired guest room numbers open to reveal bright rooms.
Classic hardwood floors provide a solid base to contrast with the playful touches from vintage inspired elements like the cabinets, vibrantly coloured carpets, bright seating, sofa and soft furnishings. The headboards highlight black and white pictures of Bangkok’s past, brightened with pops of gold.d
Comfy bedrooms feature 40-inch LED TVs, minibars and safes, while spa-inspired bathrooms are spacious with colourful accent walls and are outfitted with Australian skincare brand Biology bath amenities.
The spacious 78 sqm. one-bedroom suite is a truly unique luxe experience. Designed with glamour in mind, the breezy living room features a private balcony as well as a well-decorated dining area and bar that leads to the dramatic art-deco inspired bedroom with a king bed. The master bathroom takes inspiration from gold and glitz with the choice of a bathtub and walk-in rain shower.
All rooms including the suite offer a pillow menu for guests to truly personalize their sleeping arrangements.

No Hotel Indigo Bangkok review is complete until you’ve had an opportunity to wag your finger down each of the hotel’s marvellous menus.
Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road boasts a quartet of restaurants and bars that serve delectable dishes and crafted drinks.
Metro On Wireless
Each morning guests at the Hotel Indigo in Bangkok gather at Metro On Wireless to indulge in an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet.
Located on the hotel’s 2nd floor, Metro On Wireless offers all-day dining, Thai and Western bistro cuisine and dainty daily afternoon tea. From the glamorous dining room enjoy leafy views or on a breezy day sit on the outside patio to soak up the sun.
At Metro On Wireless, the most popular Thai dishes are the Northern Thai Khao Soi and Moo Klook Foon, fried pork coated in a tangy and slightly spicy mix of toasted rice powder and chilis.
Thai Afternoon Tea is served daily from 1-4pm. With a seasonal menu that changes every few months, the afternoon tea highlights savoury and sweet treats from Thai cuisine, as well as some western classics. The highlight is the free-flow of beverages, allowing guests to sample their favourite coffee and tea drinks. The coffee used at Metro On Wireless is the Sarnies brand, which is roasted right in the neighbourhood.
Continuing with its afternoon tea theme, Metro On Wireless also hosts ART-TEA time, a monthly DIY weekend session that combines a workshop activity with an afternoon tea mini buffet.
