Hotel JAL City Bangkok, the 16th property to operate under the Hotel JAL City brand, which is one of the most renowned hotel brands in Japan, is all set to open on 3rd July.

The official opening had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is the first of the brand to open outside of Japan and is located on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok’s Thonglor tourist and business district. 

Hotel JAL City Bangkok is situated adjacent to Hotel Nikko Bangkok, which opened in January 2019. Thonglor BTS Skytrain station is just a three-minute walk away. Thonglor is an area extending north and south from Soi Sukhumvit 55, commonly known as Thonglor Road, in the Wattana district of central Bangkok. The area has long been home to many Japanese and other expatriates as well as wealthy Thais. The Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) and Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC), along with multinational restaurants, bars, community malls and international hospitals, are all nearby, making it a prime location for both business and leisure.

“We are delighted to be able to announce the opening of the first Hotel JAL City property outside Japan,” said Mr Tadashi Kitahara, General Manager of Hotel Nikko Bangkok and Hotel JAL City Bangkok. “We are expecting this to bring broader recognition of our hotel brand in Thailand and we aim to provide the renowned Japanese style omotenashi service, taking full advantage of the convenient and strategic location of the new hotel.”
