The family has a week to spend in Bangkok. Three nights in BED STATION HOSTEL in the central, charmingly chaotic part of the capital and another three nights in MARRIOTT VACATION CLUB’s EMPIRE PLACE in a more quiet part of the city. Let’s see how the little ones score this!
Imagine us 9 adults, 1 teen and 4 kids packed in a 6-bed and 8-bed dorms. All 14 of us in 2 rooms with the kids happily claiming the upper bunks. You bet the few adults on upper bunks struggled to climb up and down 😄
We enjoyed our first hostel experience. The kids more so. We chatted while we took our showers and groomed ourselves. The kids love the long table where we had our simple breakfasts of cereals, bread, jams, coffee and tea. The adults patronized the nearby massage parlor almost daily.
The 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units in Marriott’s Empire Place are very very spacious. So is the 1-bedroom unit. Six rooms (plus the sofa beds in the living rooms) good for 18 pax. It is a no brainer that everyone loves the space, the pool, the gym, the luxury that this serviced apartment offers. Yet both kids and adults agree we had a most wonderful hostel experience in Bed Station. As one grandchild articulated, “This here is fancy but the hostel experience was fun”. On our first night in Marriott’s Empire Place, one declared “I miss the hostel”. Enough said.
