“So What a Sofitel So, not a so so!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

So much in love with this hotel even the idea of decoration inspired from The Element Hong Kong or it was just coincidence. My room is Wood element not the Water that I requested. The detail of design made me feel like a room with Scandinavian design twist Thai style. I was so relax and enjoyed the Apple TV and iTunes radio online while sip a illy espresso with the view of Lumpini Park. I admired the uniform of the staffs designed by Christian Lacroix. So what a wonderful life in Bangkok!

This hotel was very modern and stylish. Our room was on level 23 and had a beautiful view of the lake and park over the road. The infinity pool was great over looking the high rise buildings, beautiful at night. Breakfast was definitely the best part of our stay here. They stocked a full range of tea, coffee, freshly squeezed juices, pastries, cheeses, meats, savoury stir fries, dumplings, eggs, crepes, ice cream etc.... Amazing. The hotel is situated a short walk from the markets and a large shopping centre. We would definitely stay at this hotel again, thank you for your hospitality.

I'm here for a meeting. Room are very comfortable and they are decorated on the basis of the 4 elements. I was in the metal room. Bed are soft. It's not difficult to find this hotel because it's located near a very big park in the city (Lumphini Park). From airport, by taxi, you can reach it in 40 minutes. Scenic view from the last floor (31!) is very amazing and you can see city skyline, with many skyscrapers.

The Sofitel Bangkok is a very unique style hotel with great customer service. Firstly the interior design if the hotel is so unique, they have four different room types based on the themes: metal, wood, water and earth. I stayed in metal, which was a stunning room completely in white with a beautiful bathroom. The bed was one of the best I had slept in with wonderful comfy pillows and duvets. Free wifi and a free mini bar were a nice and welcomed feature. The color changing welcome drink was another unique feature and the breakfast was to die for. If you love a bit of craziness and beautiful interior design, this is the hotel to stay in. I had no chance to use the pool, but the picture of the infinity pool was amazing. A hip place with great service

I only can say good things about my stay at Sofitel So. Very attentive staff, beautiful decoration, wonderful swimming pool and good food. It is just perfect. The only bad thing is that you don't feel like leaving the hotel to know the city. Prices could be softer, though...

The Sofitel for us was part of a coupon deal so I was a bit cautious upon arrival.
But the manner in which the Sofitel So has changed the game for a hotel guest the welcome drink, check-in process and room tour were outstanding and unique.
I won't go into detail but the reservation was cocked up and our room needed to be changed. But with a little perseverance and some fantastic care from Amy at the welcome desk, we upgraded to a bigger room and were really happy with it. The wood element suited us all perfectly and the privileges of the So Club were truly memorable.
Staff knew my name everywhere. Most hotels in Australia can't manage this let alone notice you're in need of assistance.
If you stay at Sofitel So, the staff are really The Difference.
Enjoy.

Stylish and trendy hotel, great service staff, and the little surprises started when we were picked up by limo and treated to superb Thai hospitality from the onset. Room was great, ideal for the two of us. Only minus is it's not exactly in the part of town where we would like to be, but still near enough for shopping and entertainment. We'd come back for sure.
