Take Me There: 😱 😱 😱 😱 😱 😱 😱 😱 8/10
If you’re guilty of enjoying quirky hotels, this is definitely the place for you.
At this Bangkok prison hotel you’ll not only stay in a themed room, but also take part in a true (well, not entirely) jail experience. From getting your ~mugshot~ taken upon check-in to wearing black-and-white striped pajamas and being mindful of a set curfew, it’s a hotel stay unlike any other.
At Sook Station in Bangkok, guests – nay, inmates – can opt to spend the night in a bit of a roleplay. The small prison-themed hotel is made up of (stylish) iron bars and grey interiors with dimly lit rooms and black and white bedding. The interior design is simple and no-frills, yet definitely still has something cool about it. It’s exactly what you would expect if a boutique hotel and a prison had a baby.
Inclusive of towel elephants on the beds et al.
Upon arrival, guests to the hotel get their mugshot taken, and receive a set of striped uniform, before being assigned a number that allows them in and out of their cells. I mean, rooms. They are also advised of a curfew, which is in keeping with the jail-y vibe, but not so strictly enforced.
It’s all a little eerie, but it’s also a fun twist on a regular hotel experience.
And besides seriously sticking to their theme, the Bangkok prison hotel also offers a rooftop hot tub, an in-house cafe (featuring complimentary breakfast in the mornings – just like in prison), as well as a co-working space. If you’ve booked yourself a fancy cell/room you may even get access to a private patio or balcony. Goals.
