BANGKOK, NNA - Japan's Nishi-Nippon Railroad Co. has announced a plan to launch its second hotel in Bangkok in the summer of 2023.

The company, which operates a railway network in the western Japan prefecture of Fukuoka and is commonly known as Nishitetsu at home, said Thursday that the eight-story hotel will follow Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Bangkok opened in May 2020.

The 193-room new hotel will stand in the Thai capital's largest business district of Silom, featuring easy access to Sala Daeng station on the BTS Skytrain mass transit system and Silom station on the MRT subway network.

Both businesspeople and tourists are expected as potential hotel users because of the location, which houses the offices of a number of Japanese companies and is close to one of Asia's busiest entertainment areas, according to Nishitetsu.

The company is pinning high hopes on the post-COVID-19 recovery of business activities and tourism in opening the second Thai hotel. (NNA/Kyodo)
