The new ibis Bangkok IMPACT adds 587 rooms to the existing 380-room Novotel Bangkok IMPACT, offering an attractive alternative to local companies and government agencies, as well as international exhibitors and visitors, seeking to save on accommodation expenses and travel time to IMPACT Arena, Exhibition and Convention Center(also known as IMPACT Muang Thong Thani). Access to downtown Bangkok and both airports is also convenient via public transportation, and the hotel offers ample parking. The hotel is also well-positioned to cater to increased demand in the area, which will welcome a water park, go-kart track, office complex, shopping centres, beach club and marina, and the new Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT) Pink line.
Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia, says, "Bangkok is a renowned destination offering visitors everything they could desire, from shopping venues, attractions and activities to historical landmarks and places of interests for the family. Additionally, the city presents international event planners with countless opportunities for unique functions that combine value and flexibility with Thailand's distinctive culture and hospitality. The new ibis Bangkok IMPACT not only puts Asia's second-largest exhibition and convention venue on our guests' doorstep, but the entire city at their fingertips, which we believe will attract even more visitors".
The 18-storey ibis Bangkok IMPACT features 54 interconnecting rooms, 475 twin rooms, 112 king rooms and 13 rooms for guest with special needs. Each room is equipped with a 32-inch flat-screen LED TVs, an in-room safe and tea & coffee facilities.
ibis is AccorHotels' premium economy hotel brand and the European leader in the category with its promise of modern well-equipped rooms and welcome areas. The hotel highlights an inviting exterior accentuated by primary colours, earthy tones and raw materials that blend harmoniously with red and blue touches around the public areas, complementing its laid-back atmosphere. The spacious lobby area and 500-seat TASTE Restaurant offer floor-to-ceiling natural light. A 24-hour ibis cafe & bar is available for guests to savour their favourite drinks or snacks, while the ibis Web Corner offers guest WIFI access and opportunity to catch up on work while listening to their favourite songs on the digital Jukebox.
General Manager Fraser McKenzie added, "The opening of ibis Bangkok IMPACT further enhances the reputation of IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Centre as one of the best meeting and events venue in Thailand. As the only economy branded property here, the new hotel perfectly complements Novotel Bangkok IMPACT in offering the best accommodation options for visitors to IMPACT".
Ibis Bangkok IMPACT is a 15-minute drive from Don Mueang International Airport and 30-minute drive from downtown Bangkok. The hotel is served by an array of transportation options such as public vans, IMPACT Link vans connecting to the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) Mochit station and the MRT Chatuchak Park station. The MRT Pink line, which will include a stop at IMPACT Arena, Exhibition and Convention Center is under construction and expected to launch in 2020.
