we stayed at the hotel solo 2 on our last night in bangkok, so we really spent less than 8 hours at the hotel total, so this is by no means a comprehensive review. we arrived rather harried because we had just been ripped off by an airport taxi driver, and also because we had to get a taxi to the airport at 4:30am. the staff was nice and patient with us, even though i was a bit flustered. we received welcome drinks upon arrival and were upgraded to a superior deluxe room, which was fabulous! this was my favorite hotel we stayed in during our 10 day holiday in thailand. i'm often in bangkok for work, and this has been my favorite hotel so far. the rooms are very modern without feeling space-agey. everything seems clean and sparkling new. the bathrooms in the superior are quite nice, with the shower and bathroom in their own little "rooms" to either side of the sink. which is nice if someone needs to brush their teeth while someone is taking a shower. they rooms come with pod coffee makers and plug-ins for hdmi and usb cables to the big lcd screen. there is a wifi router for each floor and it worked really well. we didn't stay long enough to enjoy breakfast, but it was sweet of them to offer us a free breakfast when i had booked only a basic room. the manager was very nice and accommodating, and spoke really good english, but not all of the other front desk staff had similarly good english. but that was a relatively minor note to an otherwise brilliant, albeit short, stay at the hotel solo 2 sukhumvit. i'm only sorry that we didn't have more time to stay and enjoy all the hotel's amenities. fyi - don't order drinks at the rooftop bar. or at least if you do, don't order caipirinhas. probably serves me right for ordering a caipirinha in thailand, but it was the worst either of us had ever had in my life. it didn't *taste* anything like a caipirinha and the bartender knew very little english, which made the whole exchange quite painful. pricey, too, at 180 baht.
