Awarded as a top choice of Agoda travelers in 2018, Maduzi is a luxurious boutique hotel near Asok BTS and Sukhumvit MRT stations. Hidden behind Exchange Tower (linked by the sky walk from the BTS), its main entrance is along Ratchadaphisek Road, not within the alley as what the address says. The reception and lounge were all fancy, and honestly not to my liking. Thankfully the Maduzi Classic room I stayed in was inviting, spacious and comfortable.

There are a few pages in the menu, but my eyes never go past the first page.
Why I stayed at MaduziThere are many affordable options to stay in Bangkok. Like many tourists, I had stayed mostly in Siam and Pratunam area. And the furthest I've traveled within Bangkok was Chatuchak/Mo Chit to the north, and Phrom Phong to the south. With my office location being further south on the BTS map, I preferred staying in Asok where traveling time to work was reasonable. With the BTS and MRT interchange here, traveling is a breeze when I have to venture to several areas to choose an ideal new home.
Besides, I was pretty familiar with Asok area (or so I thought). Terminal 21 has many great food options. Hubby recommends Pier 21 food court. If you had Ootoya in Singapore, try it here at Terminal 21 - much cheaper than back home. This branch is not bad, but the service is a bit slow especially for rice refills. Do look for the Cha Tra Mue kiosk outside Gourmet supermarket, I enjoy their Thai Ice Tea icecream cone. I also bought a lot of household items at Daiso and Miniso for my new residence (nylon kitchen tongs are a really useful tool).
Just at the alley beside Maduzi Hotel, you would find a 24/7 convenience store and a few street vendors that appear in the evenings. I particularly love the crispy fried chicken wings and moo ping (pork skewers). Within Exchange Tower itself, there's Starbucks, Chu Chocolate Bar, Boots pharmacy, etc.
