Two relatively new hotels in Bkk by Sofitel. The more business orientated hotel at Sukhumvit has every facility and amenity you could wish for and is presented with Sofitel's signature style and aplomb, though the large and comfortable rooms lack the wow factor of Sofitel So.
Nevertheless the experience of staying was completely elevated above excellent by two members of staff. The Appartment bar has a stunning balcony at the top of the building which is looked after by Nang, a super friendly trainee who smiles enough for the whole of Thailand put together, and without even noticing or being encouraged it just seemed appropriate to be suicidally indulgent with the cocktail list.
And the Club floor which has a wonderful Thai staff also has he benefit of the ultimately charming, and chatty ( not too chatty though) Benjamin, who seems to encourage a party spirit, and who made our visit most happy and memorable.
All the staff are as impeccable as you would expect, but these two did make a difference.
Additionally, as Bkk acquires crucially cool infinity pools the Sofitel pool is a fabulously friendly garden pool and beautifully run. Great hotel!More
