Model Answer:

In my humble opinion, staying at a nice hotel is actually one of the few most important things that make a tour memorable and enjoyable. Today, I would like to talk about one such hotel in Bangkok that I visited a couple of years ago. Thank you for choosing this great topic for me.

The name of this hotel is Siam Kempinski which, I think, is probably the most family-friendly hotel that I have ever visited. Sitting right in the heart of Bangkok downtown in Thailand, this giant looking hotel with its 400 luxury rooms is considered to be an “oasis” for those families who want to ensure a very exquisite travel experience for their family members. It doesn’t only look massive, but also goes to a great length to display contemporary that is pleasingly augmented with Thai touches. Most of the rooms at this luxury hotel are rather spacious that are furnished in beige and dark tones in order to give them a rather elegant and yet contrasting look.

However, apart from all things, I think that the hotel’s one of the most distinct features lies in its “original artwork”, about 4000 pieces of them, which beautifully graces most of the walls of its rooms.

And as far as the facilities and services are concerned, I would say that they are certainly of top class, where most rooms have large balconies and minibars. Not to mention, of course, its spotless marble bathrooms and elegant looking suites are certain to offer the guests a sense of novelty and purity that are hard to find in other hotels. Last, but not least, the hotel also offers breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet facilities, along with Wi-Fi, laundry, pool and fitness services.

So, considering all these things, I would certainly say that this is a very nice hotel to stay in, mainly because it offers a very great service for the prices it charges. Besides, what makes this hotel so unique is that even though this hotel attracts a rather large group of guests, the staff there has some uncanny abilities to remember its guests.
