Accor has awarded the first ALLSAFE label in the world to Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20, a flagship Novotel hotel located in the heart of Sukhumvit shopping and restaurant district in Bangkok, Thailand. The hotel has also been independently certified by The Environmental Health Consultancy as being fully compliant with the group’s new hygiene protocols.
