“A wonderful hotel but the location is not ideal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The Sukhothai for my part was a wonderful experience. My son stayed there before and wanted me to experience this fine hotel. We (my son and I) stayed 2 nights. My only complaints are as follows: Found the staff too friendly! During breakfast, I was often interrupted by some staff member. We had a deluxe room (smallest room), which was comfortable, nicely decorated and arranged practically. We were entitled to a free upgrade but had the misfortune that the hotel was full that evening. I was surprised at check-in that the staff did not say that we did or did not get the upgrade, but I asked the next morning. The hotel grounds are relatively small if I compare to the Peninsula (perhaps unfair to make this comparison). The bathroom was beautifully designed and practical. The room included an Italian coffee maker with Italian capsules that produced a better than average cup of coffee. I had breakfast both days and found it to be excellent (bagel, cream cheese and lax!) but hard to get good pancakes in Thailand! We had dinner at the Thai restaurant. Both the presentation and food were done quite well. The price is relatively high of course at 5-star restaurants (it seems the prices are comparable to USA and European prices). We did not use the spa and never found the gym (surprised if the hotel didn’t have one). The pool and pool area are relatively small but still quite nice. The one negative feature of the hotel is its location. There’s not much in the area and the nearest sky train (Sala Daeng) is about a 15-min walk. However, the taxi ride to the major shopping area (Siam) is not far. In conclusion, I highly recommend this hotel if you prefer peace and quiet, high quality and excellent service.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms in this hotel are adequate. It depends on what you want regarding size. you wo...

This was our first stay at The Sukhothai and we look forward to staying with you again. Every aspect of our stay was stellar to say the least. From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the moment we were taken to our return flight everything was perfect. Our suite was gorgeous overlooking the pool, the truffles were delicious and the always full fruit basket was greatly appreciated.

Every staff member we dealt with was kind, polite, and super sweet. I have stayed at a variety of upper end hotels in Bangkok and can honestly say that the staff at The Sukhothai out shine the competition by a huge margin. The staff at the breakfast buffet were by far our favorites they all went out of their way to make our breakfast experience amazing. Everyone fawned all over our two year old daughter making her special pancakes, bringing her juice, and one manager even brought her the cutest little hair berets. These guys are amazing and made our stay an amazing experience. Special kudos to the folks behind serving counter they were extremely personable and always smiling. Oops... I almost forgot to mention that the food and the selection were outstanding.

The airport pickup and return were wonderful. Our driver was polite and personable. On our return to the airport we were assisted by hotel staff at the airport it was unexpected, but greatly appreciated.

Thank you for everything!!

Room Tip: Book a suite with breakfast included.

This hotel provides an oasis of calm in the centre of a hectic city. The design deliberately tries to create the sense of a Thai resort hotel with a tree lined drive, water features and courtyards. This carries through to the rooms which are fitted with dark woods which some on this site have suggested are old-fashioned but I find charming. The rooms are slightly smaller than those in the latest offerings but perfectly acceptable. Service is exemplary. The Thai food in the Celadon restaurant is excellent. Concerning location, it is a good ten minutes to the nearest skytrain station but if you are using taxis or a driver this is not a problem. The pool is large and again provides the illusion that you are in a holiday destination.Prices are reasonable for this quality.

It is my second time in Sukhothai. I travel to BKK almost twice a year and I usually likes to try out new hotels. But since I am here in BKK to attend a conference which held in Sukhothai, that's why I come back again.
You can get everything you want from a 5 star hotel here. good service, nice environment, comfy bed. But just a few draw back for me that unlikely I will be back again. Firstly, the location is not ideal. I am here for only 2 days and I only have a few hours for shopping, but there is nothing around this hotel that you can Go and shop. Taking a taxi is a nightmare in BKK so i need to go by public transport. however it is not really direct to public transport. To go to Siam Paragon, I need to first walk 10 mins to the subway station, then take one station to Si Lom, then change BTS to get to Chi Lom. With all the walking and queue up for tics, it took me almost 45 mins!
The room is spacious and comfortable, however the decor is a bit old. Maybe I have been spoil by all the new hotels here in BKK so that's why i am not totally pleased with the interior of the room.
The service here is really excellent and the food here is so good! I love eating in the restaurant Celedon which is the Thai Restaurant here in the hotel! Food is really good and you won't be disappointed.
If you are like old fashion deco and time is not a problem for you, then you might consider this hotel, but I would rather stay somewhere closer to shopping and dinning. Is just my personal choice and no doubt this is a good hotel.

Can't say enough about how nice this place is - gracious, elegant, comfortable, impeccable service, beautiful rooms and great facilities. Location is great as well - set back from the main road so the traffic noise is negligible and easy to get to the rest of the city from Soi Sathon.

Beautiful oasis of calm in the middle of bustling Bangkok. Well appointed rooms with all mod cons. Great staff who are always eager to please. Nice relaxing pool area with comfortable sun beds. We ate at the Thai restaurant but arrived late not long before it closed and ended up the only ones there. The food was good and I am sure with a busier atmosphere earlier in the evening the overall experience would have been better. Breakfast was excellent. A huge choice of Western and Asian foods all of excellent quality.

The Sukhothai Bangkok was my wife and mine introduction to Thailand...it was an oasis in the middle of the busy business district. The facilities were excellent and the staff were very helpful in offering suggestions for activities and arranging tours. The three on site restaurants were also excellent. We would definitely stay there again if we ever return to Bangkok
