"Inspiring, Sleek and Convenient" claims the hotel brochure - and for once the hotel lives up to its claim. On arrival I was amazed by how modern, clean and well-designed the rooms were. The pictures on the internet only begin to do it justice. As a business traveller I was particularly impressed by the workstation (yes, sleek!) and proper office chair as well as all the modcons including USB plugs, free in-room wireless, flat screen TV and espresso machine. The Solo Superior room is the smallest room at 28m2 but did not feel small at all. It was very well designed with a work desk, seating area, separate toilet and sink area and one massive rain shower overlooking the bedroom (you can close it off with shutters if you want). Overall the room was just as good as other rooms I have stayed in at five-star hotels. Even the amenities were of high quality! Downstairs the restaurant was very modern and chic and seemed designed for the solo traveller with bench-style tables and in-built wine holders. The room service menu was good value and had old favourites like Eggs Benedict which is hard to find in Asia, as well as a range of Thai and other Western dishes.
The hotel is about 500m from the main road and is a bit of a hike in hot weather to the BTS station, but they offer a free tuk-tuk service to the BTS Ploenchit station and Sukhumvit Rd. Once you're at the BTS station it's easy to get to the major shopping districts.
Overall Solo was an absolute delight and one of the best value for money places I have ever stayed.
