Hot Desk Bangkok – review
I was invited to work for one day at Servcorp offices at Park Ventures Ecoplex on Wireless Road in Bangkok. I spent a day working on their business lounge and here is my review of their hot desk in Bangkok.
Servcorp provides virtual offices, Executive Suites and Office Space all around the world. I visited in their Bangkok Park Ventures branch but am sure offices around the world are more or less identical with their service offerings.
You can access Park Ventures building directly from BTS Ploenchit walkway (exit 2). This is fantastic as Bangkok is one hot city making walking outside the last option on the list.
Before you get to level 18, where Servcorp office is, you need to get a visitor pass at Park Ventures reception at the lobby. Take an ID with you as they’ll request it. You’ll get a visitor pass that allows you to go up to Servcorp offices. As you arrive to the 18 floor you are greeted by very friendly receptionists, great view of Bangkok city and professional atmosphere.
Hot Desks & Office
Hot desks, currently six cubicles, are just behind reception and provide comfortable area to work at. There is a small table space, phone, pen, paper plus two power outlets to use, so pretty much everything one needs to work effectively. Around the corner you’ll find kitchen with complimentary coffee, tee and drinking water as well as TV with CNN news channel.
I found table space big enough to work on and together with very comfy office chair, really cannot complain. Office chairs especially are comfortable and fully adjustable making it not only great place to work but also highly ergonomic one too. Nice change for fixed table and chair combo in a coffee shop!
Lighting on the desk and in the office area are sufficient and general decor is similar to what you would except from any virtual office/office space provider.
They do play music in the background, and most of it during the day was classical so if that is not your cup of tee, bring headphones and your own tunes. I did not mind the music at all as it was not distractingly loud. I have read that music increases productivity and I did certainly had great results at the end of the day.
During the day there were few people working in the cubicles but walls are pretty high so you are not distracted by others.
Location could not be better, it is just off Ploenchit BTS station with direct walk way from the station. There is a coffee shop and 7/11 downstairs plus numerous local and international restaurant options for lunch in the area.
To Sum up
I worked full day at one of the hot desks and must admit was very happy with both Servcorp services and my work results.
Would I recommend Servcorp? Absolutely.
I did love their hot desk set up as it was very comfortable with great office chair, service was excellent and coffee was good. I occasionally work from virtual offices, have been to few in Bangkok and Servcorp did not disappoint in any way.
Here are few photos from Servcorp office. First is photo of my work desk for the day, second is of the great view into Bangkok city and third complimentary coffee, water and a cold towel – lovely way to start a day! Top photo on this post is the view you can admire from the office – shame it was a cloudy day.

Opening hours: 24/7 access if you have monthly pass.

Internet: Unlimited fast wi-fi. You get log-in from reception.
Noise level: Very quiet except general office sounds – copy machine is right next to hot desks. They play background music that is mostly classical so bring headphones if you prefer other type of music.
Tip: skip Dean & Deluca on the way and have your coffee at Servcorp as its pretty good, plus bring your own music if you are not into classical music.
* I was offered free day pass by Servcorp in exchange of writing this review. I genuinely enjoyed working there and would not hesitate to work there again – and paying for the service.
