A dream came true when we were able to open this small residential hotel, created from two adjoining shop houses right in the centre of Bangkok. For me, and my partner Khun ice, we are delighted that we can now offer people the chance to stay in the kind of place we would choose for ourselves. Ice is from Thailand: he is the professional hotelier, restauranteur and chef while I'm the enthusiastic amateur, originally from the UK, who's other job is in advertising. Bangkok is our home; we 'live above the shop' and love to welcome friends and guests to visit and stay in the Residences - each one has a name (Herma House and Maison ice). In addition, we have two restaurants next door - Cafe ice and Tapi; both serve really good, authentic Thai food as well as a selection of European dishes, indoors or outside at night on the garden terrace. We now have a number of very individual branches of Cafe ice in Bangkok that are happily proving quite popular. When there is time, we love to travel to Europe, America, Australia and to explore other parts of Asia; we try to stay in smaller, more intimate hotels and guesthouses like ours, to exchange ideas and learn from others. Antiques, art, fashion, design, photography and culture & music discovered and rediscovered, in new and familiar places, are of interest, as are the many new friends we are lucky to make on the way.
