Our favourite rooms
Opt for a Studio Suite and make the most of the extra space. Any of the rooms towards the back of the hotel get our vote, on account of their winsome garden views.
Attention, waterbabies: Volve doesn’t have a pool, so you’ll need to get your liquid thrills elsewhere (at one of Bangkok’s brilliant spas, perhaps).
Save plenty of room in your trunk for Thonglor finds; there are boutiques and galleries aplenty on your doorstep.
Got Thai friends? You can call them for free using your in-room telephone.
Little Smiths are welcome, though the hotel is geared towards adults. Baby cots can be added to rooms for free (on request); families should opt for the Two-Bedroom Suite for its ample space.
