Airport Hotel Review: Amari Don Muang (Bangkok) Dayroom

Airport Hotel Review: Amari Don Muang (Bangkok) Dayroom

On May 6, I arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok shortly after 7AM. Since I had 12 hours until my next flight from Don Muang to Jakarta, I decided to take the free shuttle from Suvarnabhumi to Don Muang and get a dayroom at the Amari Don Muang hotel.

Amari Don Muang hotel in Bangkok.

Getting to the Hotel & Booking the Room

The hotel is located just across the road from the international part of Don Muang, and it is connected to the terminal by a covered walkway. The walk from the terminal to the hotel takes about five minutes.

I did not have a reservation, and so I just walked over to one of the staff at the reception and asked if they had any dayrooms available. Luckily, they did, and so I was able to get one. The dayroom cost is 1,060 Thai bahts (about 35 dollars) for unlimited use between 8AM and 6PM. Given that I arrived around 9AM and had to leave around 4:30PM, I was able to get good value out of the stay.

After a couple of minutes at the desk, I was handed my keycard to room 5105 as well as a piece of paper with the wi-fi login information.

Besides the reception, there are also some restaurants on the lobby floor, as well a couple of meeting rooms and other facilities.

Based on the Amari Don Muang website, it was a Deluxe Room (in spite of the name, the most standard one).

The room was quite spacey.

Besides a bit too soft king-sized bed, the room featured a sofa chair and a coffee table next to the window, a working desk, a TV, and a luggage rack.

It took me a while to realize how to control the air conditioning. To save you time – it is controlled through the “alarm clock” on the bedside table.

On the right side of the room entrance, there was a closet with a bathrobe and a safe. Across from it was a tea and coffee set, as well as a minibar.

The bathroom was on the left side right after entering the room. It featured both a regular and a rainforest shower head, although the pressure was a bit too low. There were also two complementary bottles of water and some amenities on the sink counter.

There is also a gym – slightly awkwardly placed in a hallway – on the fifth floor.

Finally, there are a couple of restaurants in the hotel including the one in the lobby.

However, there are many more opportunities to eat around the hotel as the terminal is just a five minute walk away. Besides the terminal food court, there is also a restaurant in the walkway appropriately called “The Bridge.”

Amari Don Muang (Bangkok) Hotel Summary

While I initially planned to spend the 12 hours in the terminal at either Suvarnabhumi or Don Muang, I was too tired to do that. When I searched for other options, the dayroom at Amari Don Muang seemed as the best alternative. And I was not disappointed.

For a fairly low price, the hotel offers a comfortable place to spend some hours between flights – and if you want to, you can even squeeze in a swim or a workout. As such, I can only recommend this solution if you have a long layover at Don Muang and are not in the mood to venture out into the city.
