The Eugenia Hotel, Bangkok

E and I went gallivanting to Bangkok over the weekend for a short recharge. For a change, we decided to stay in this lovely boutique hotel, The Eugenia, that was recommended by Chubby Hubby.
And what a joy and charming experience it truly was! The Eugenia is completely furnished in an old colonial style with antique furnishings, complete with with copper bathtub. Although a tiny hotel with only 12 rooms, the service was warm and impeccable, and truly outstanding in the small touches, e.g. breakfast was freshly cooked every morning, orange juice was freshly squeezed out of real oranges, not out of a bottle, bedlinens of real linen imported from Belgium..... The owner owns a fleet of vintage cars - a Jaguar, Mercedes, and Daimler-Chrysler, that you can arrange to be picked up from the airport in. The only slight complaint that we had was that the hotel was a little far from the BTS skytrain station for walking, but then they provide a complimentary tuk-tuk service, and being slightly off the beaten path does add to its charm and tranquility!
