Thailand: The Ascott Limited has opened Metropole Bangkok, the first luxury serviced residence in the company’s The Crest Collection.

Located in the Thonglor residential district, Ascott says the property "brings a touch of European charm to the heart of Bangkok'.

Jean Keijdener, Ascott's country general manager for Thailand, said: "Metropole is the only property in Asia and one of four in the world handpicked to be part of the prestigious Crest Collection. Choosing Bangkok to debut our first Crest Collection property in the region is testament to Ascott's commitment to Thailand. Bangkok is one of Asia's most dynamic cities and Thonglor is its most vibrant area, home to the city's trendiest dining and entertainment options. Metropole is a masterpiece that combines period elegance with contemporary comforts while offering expatriates and travellers unprecedented personalised service. Staying in Metropole is an experience like no other."

 "After operating in Thailand for more than 10 years with our three well-known brands - Ascott, Citadines and Somerset, we found this unique beauty that is befitting of The Crest Collection. Metropole is a landmark addition that will elevate the living experience of serviced residences in Bangkok. With Ascott's strong expertise in managing award-winning properties in some of the finest locations worldwide, I am confident that Metropole will be an extraordinary place for our guests to call home," he added.

The property features 116 studio and one-bedroom apartments, some with a private balcony. Facilities include a swimming pool, a fitness centre, a restaurant, an outdoor dining area and residents' lounge. the property also offers additional services including laundry, dry cleaning and meal delivery.

Besides Metropole in Bangkok, Ascott's three other serviced residences under The Crest Collection are located in Paris, France. La Clef Louvre and La Clef Tour Eiffel are operational while La Clef Champs-Élysées is slated to open in 2018.
