Housed inside a former YMCA building, the Metropolitan Bangkok has a refreshingly hip aesthetic. The hotel’s public areas and guest rooms are dominated by clean lines, dark wood furnishings, and cream-colored accents. Guest rooms also showcase original artwork by native Thai artist, Natee Utarit. The breakfast smoothies at glow, an organic restaurant, are popular among guests, as is the Thai food at Nahm, owned by David Thompson. The COMO Shambhala Urban Escape houses a gym, male and female steam rooms, and 10 holistic treatment areas.
