Recent guest reviews

Like something a little bit more genuine and truly beautiful? Cabochon is the place for you! So much nicer than the big 5 star monoliths. Cool, Friendly, H helpful and ohh so stylish. Gorgeous rooms. If you like interior design you will love staying here. Really well located but hard to get a cab from here, leave plenty of time when you need one

The Cabochon does have an old world charm. The furnishings and style reminiscent of colonial days gone by. Although a very short stay, the pre-arrival service was efficient and staff during our stay, helpful. The room was nicely decorated however, maintenance and touch-ups are desperately needed as regards grouting and general deterioration due to the climate. The refill pump shampoo and body wash dispensers also not in keeping with the standards one would expect - ceramic bottles would be preferable if wanting to keep the cache without the environmental wastage associated with small plastic containers. One major drawback to our having a restful sleep was the fact that there is no sound proofing from within or from outside noise. We heard a full blown argument in the neighboring room in the early hours and with a 5am wake-up, all sleep was lost. For a new build albeit in a colonial style, this is a real disappointment.

The Cabochon is a small, charming colonial style oasis in Bangkok with very friendly and good service. It seems to attract a diverse range of well mannered travellers (mostly couples) and is well placed. Our family enjoyed every minute of it and will be back.

Tell all my friends - that's how i feel after 3 nights at this hygge hotel in a hipsterish area of Bangkok. The hotel is unique and delightful in every way (those seeking sterile glass and brass should look to chain hotels). Service is welcoming, helpful and gentle. My family of four (children 4 and 10) felt really comfortable and the other guests were a diverse mix of well mannered and cosmopolitan fellow travellers - we will definitely be back and will be telling our friends this is the place to stay in Bangkok!

I recently stayed at the Cabochon for three nights, and found it to be a wonderful respite from the hectic pace of Bangkok, Love the city, but you need a break from it. I stayed in a queen suite with a private balcony and shower--was exactly as advertised--spacious, comfortable, all amenities provided that I need. Only critical comment would be that the shower is actually too hot--I had a hard time controlling the water temperature. Other reviewers have noted the various elements of the hotel--I only used the breakfast area (ate outside), and the a/c'd lounge area for happy hour. didn't use the restaurant or pool. What I found most welcome, other than the quiet respite from the city pace that the hotel provides, despite its location right off Sukhamvit, was the attitude of the staff. From my pre-arrival communication about the best was to get to the hotel from the airport during morning rush hour, to their assistance arranging for a 4:30 am cab and a breakfast box, the staff were superb. I've forgotten a few names, but Pom, Ticha, Nicky, the barman San, were just great. Friendly, solicitous, helpful--exactly what I wanted and received. Really first rate in my opinion,

This is a really great hotel if you want to experience Asian colonial chic at its best. Breakfast is served in a gorgeous space, rooms are specious and stylish, the location is great, quiet and still good access to SkyTrain - what a special place.

Cabochon is a unique boutique hotel for people looking for a place different than the cookie cutter hotels in the city. Beautifully decorated and set back from busy street, it's still centrally located and close to Skytrain so very easy to get around. Staff were all extremely nice and the breakfast that was included was a nice selection of both Asian and Western options. Rooftop pool was also a nice option to have.

This was the first stop on our honeymoon and the Cabochon was an excellent hotel! The staff was incredibly friendly and helped answer any questions we had, including recommendations for restaurants and nearby spas. They even helped arrange shipping a package of souvenirs we had purchased back home to the USA. The food at the hotel is great, especially the free breakfast. The location of the hotel is very central but also tucked away on a side street, a nice quiet escape from the busy streets of Bangkok.

My wife and I were really disappointed. The location is great with access to the Sky Train down a quaint little street but the property and service were lacking. It is a unique property and best described as a boutique hotel. We had a very different impression than most but very similar to some. The property is not just quaint, it’s in poor condition. There are curios everywhere on the first floor but they look better in pictures. In reality it is mostly dark and dank. The smell of mustiness and mildew was very strong in some areas. My wife couldn’t even take the elevator because the odor was so bad. The way leading up to the pool was stark and spooky. The pool area itself was in very poor condition. Our reservation and payment was for a second floor room with an attached balcony off the room. We didn’t get that. When we questioned it we were told our room included the common areas with other guests and that’s where our balcony was. No shower, tub only. While the staff were not not unfriendly they certainly weren’t particularly helpful. Their mood was quite off. We felt uncomfortable and getting information on directions or recommendations was like pulling teeth. For the money there are plenty of other places IMO in BKK to stay and feel welcomed.

Myself and my friend stayed for 4 nights in cabochon hotel, bkk from 27th October to 31st October 2017. The hotel is a true oasis in the busy city of Bangkok. We had a twin room, and upgraded to a queen suite, as we wanted a balcony. The bed was supremely comfortable and pillows /linen was good quality, we slept really good. Usual amenities, but they was in large bottles not silly little bottles, making it easier, big thumbs up for that. Safe, hairdryer, robes and slippers. AC was excellent in the heat and humidity. We had breakfast and an evening meal which was lovely. The staff were very helpful and welcoming, agreed to allow us to leave big cases there whilst we have come to Phuket for 6 nights. No worries. Really helpful for us. The cabochon is a beautiful place with a rooftop pool quiet and big enough to take a dip, even swim. You won't be disappointed if you choose cabochon Hotel, I would definitely recommend it and would be happy to stay again. Thanks for a great start to our time in Thailand.
