The Back Story
Maduzi Hotel Bangkok was the third hotel I stayed at on a longer-than-expected stay in Thailand. And the stylish décor of the trendy boutique Bangkok hotel made a strong impression on me – together with the comfortable accommodation, yummy food, friendly service, and convenient location.
I am no stranger to Thailand. In fact, I’ve been there many times. I was originally planning to spend two months traveling thorough the Land of Smiles. But I ended up staying much longer.
As for Bangkok, it was to be the first stop on an itinerary that would take me to some places I had never visited before while revisiting some old favourites.
I spent my first two nights walking in the footsteps of royalty at Chakrabongse VIllas, an exclusive riverfront hotel owned by Narisa Chakrabongse, granddaughter of a HRH Prince Chakrabongse AD. There were only four villas and three suites!
Then I moved to the Lancaster Bangkok, a family-run five-star hotel, with an entirely different vibe. In fact, I had stayed there two times before. And my stay there was like a walk down Memory Lane!
My stay at Maduzi Hotel Bangkok Boutique was sponsored by Secret Retreats, a collection of unique properties and experiences

Overview – Maduzi Hotel Bangkok
As soon as I walked through the entrance of Maduzi Hotel Bangkok, I was blown away by its stylish design, sleek touches, and Buddhist imagery. And these extended from the public areas to the private spaces.
What I remember most about my brief stay at the Maduzi Hotel Bangkok are the property’s unique interior spaces. To clarify, this boutique hotel in Bangkok had a distinct personality.
And the subtle – and sometimes quirky – touches were the defining features of both the public and private spaces of the unique boutique Bangkok hotel.
Even the ride up and down in the elevator was a feast for the senses! There were flashing red lights if I remember correctly.
Accommodation – Maduzi Hotel Bangkok
Of the many so-called “boutique hotels” in Bangkok, the Maduzi Boutique Hotel Bangkok is a boutique hotel in the truest sense of the word. In other words, it is small, it is stylish, it is intimate, and it has a unique character.
All of the the hotel’s 40 rooms and suites feature a large living space with a comfortable work station, a walk-in wardrobe, an infinity spa Jacuzzi, and complimentary wi-fi. In addition, the mini bars are free – except for alcoholic beverages. Not only that, all rooms have espresso machines!
Other facilities include flat-screen TVs, DVC/CD players, and Bose sound systems.
- Classic rooms measure 49 square meters.
- Deluxe rooms measure 53 square meters.
- Corner suites measure 63 square meters.
- Maduzi suite is more like an apartment, measuring 79 square meters.
To put that in context, the Maduzi suite is bigger than my flat in Hong Kong!
My Room – Maduzi Hotel Bangkok
Upon opening the door to my room, I was greeted by a stylish espresso machine, which I never bothered to use because complimentary coffee was served throughout the day at the stylish boutique Bangkok hotel’s F&B outlets.

My room had a comfortable workstation, a flat screen TV that I never turned on, and what the gregarious GM – who introduced himself as “Chucky” – promised me would be the most comfortable bed I had ever slept in.
And Chucky was not exaggerating! This was not just because of the comfortable mattress. It was also because of the high thread count of the Egyptian cotton sheets. Pure heaven!
But what Chucky didn’t mention was the sumptuous leather armchair and footstool. This is where I spent the time I wasn’t exploring the bustling neighborhood of Asoke reading Jim Thompson – the Untold Mystery AD – rather than watching TV.
Without doubt, it was the most comfortable chair I’ve ever lounged in. In fact, I could easily fall asleep in it. Would Chucky tell me where I could buy one? If I decide to move to Thailand, this will be at the top of my shopping list!
Meanwhile, there was a water closet (i.e., toilet) separate from the bathroom. And the bathroom itself featured a lengthy wooden vanity with a large well-lit mirror. I particularly liked the stylish shallow sink.
But the star of the show was the infinity spa jacuzzi bathtub. It was massive! I was temped to take a bath. But I was afraid if I got in, I would never get out again.
Finally, there was a large walk-in wardrobe with plenty of room to store my clothes and my luggage. And that included drawers, shelves, and hanging closets.
Food and Beverage Outlets – Maduzi Hotel Bangkok
The Maduzi Hotel Bangkok has two food and beverage outlets. Directly in front of the entrance is the Maduzi Bar. And the Maduzi Restaurant – a.k.a. the Breakfast Room – is right behind.
The lobby bar serves welcome cocktails. In-house guests enjoy complimentary coffee, latte, cappuccino, and freshly brewed tea all day. And they can also enjoy two-for-one drinks during happy hour.
Regarding breakfast, I have to be honest. I’m not a big fan of hotel breakfast buffets. So, I was happy to learn that the Maduzi Hotel Bangkok cooks breakfast to order.
In other words, there is no buffet table. Not only were the choices extensive. In addition, you were free to ask for more!
I tried the Thai style rice soup on my first morning. And I tried the grilled salmon breakfast on my second morning. Out of curiosity, I opted for the American breakfast on my third morning at the trendy Bangkok boutique hotel.
Classic breakfasts are served from early morning until early afternoon. So, there is no need to rush to meet that 10.30 am deadline that many hotels impose.
Regarding the menu. there are American, Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, and Thai influences. And the lunch menu features a wide range of a la carte dishes.
Facilities – Maduzi Bangkok Hotel
Despite the hotel’s relatively small number of rooms, it has many of the facilities you would expect of a much larger property. For example, there is a swimming pool, a cool dip, a fitness room, and a conference room.
The hotel has has a pleasant outdoor space with a small swimming pool and a cool dip. In addition, there is a covered terrace, where you can enjoy breakfast in the cooler months.
As a non-smoking hotel, guests cannot smoke in their rooms. However, they can enjoy a cigarette on the terrace. And check this out! Private barbecues can be arranged!
A 24-hour fitness room will find favour with fitness addicts. And it is equipped with treadmill, cross-trainer, stationary bicycle, weight machines, and free weights.
Unfortunately, I was too busy exploring the fascinating Asoke district to make use of either the fitness room or the pools. During my next stay, perhaps?
Finally, the beautifully decorated Team Room is suitable for infomral conferneces and teambuilding activities.
Location – Maduzi Hotel Bangkok
The Maduzi Hotel Bangkok is located in Asoke, one of Bangkok’s most interesting and diverse neighborhoods. Most importantly, the Asoke BTS Skytrain Station and the Sukhimvit MRT stations are a less than 10-minute walk away.
Maduzi Hotel Bangkok – 9/1 Thanon Ratchadaphisek, (Corner Sukhumvit Soi 16 ), Klongtoey, Bangkok, Thailand.
The distance to Suvarnabhumi Airport is roughly 28 kilometers (18 miles) by taxi. And the trip takes about 25 minutes when traffic if light. But it can take considerably longer during rush hour.
The distance to Don Mueang Airport is roughly 21 kilometers (14 miles) by taxi. And the trip takes about 20 minutes. Again, it can take considerably longer during rush hour.
Is Maduzi Hotel Bangkok one of the best boutique hotels in Bangkok? In other words, would I consider staying there again? Let me do a point-by-point analysis, looking at this from a variety of angles.
I prefer hotels with a unique personality, And on this score, the Maduzi Bangkok Hotel scores top marks. It was contemporary, with cutting edge design features. Moreover, there are those subtle ethnic touches that remind you what country you’re in.
The layout of the room was unique. When you opened the door of the room, the entryway’s lights automatically came on slowly, adding a sense of drama.
The living space provided three distinct spaces: a work station, a comfortable bed, and a comfy armchair in which to read or watch television.
There was a separate water closet and bathroom. And the bathroom offered sufficient counterspace with a large, well-lit mirror.. And there was a wet room with a shower and that amazing infinity spa jacuzzi.
I particularly liked the generously sized walk-in closet. with plenty of room to get dressed while keeping my clothes, other personal belongings, and luggage out of view.
The public spaces were well defined, each with its own personality – but with an overlying sense of continuity.
As someone who doesn’t much care for hotel buffets, I loved the varied and yummy selection of set breakfasts. I could easily spend several days at the hotel without eating the same thing twice.
Finally, the Maduzi Bangkok Hotel had a superb location in the heart of Asoke, one of Bangkok’s coolest neighborhoods.
Shopping, dining, and the intersection of two mass transit lines were all within a short walk of the hotel.
On a personal note, the next hotel on my itinerary was the Jono Hotel Bangkok Asoke. I wasn’t sure where it was. But I assumed it was nearby. So I asked Chucky to help me book a taxi.
Because the hotel had only opened a few months earlier, Chucky had never heard of it. Following a quick google search, he discovered it was right next door – from the hotel’s rear entrance.
“You don’t need a taxi,” he said. “It’s about 50 yards down the street. The bartender and I can help to carry your bags.”
Talk about a personal touch! I would have to give the Maduzi Bangkok Hotel an enthusiastic two thumbs up!
