I just returned from a business trip to Bangkok. Someone booked me into the S31 Sukhumvit Hotel so i was just expecting a normal business-type hotel. Was surprised from the moment i arrived. The receptionist on the 8th floor lobby was quite gracious and helpful. The decor was extremely modern and the place smelled heavenly due to the many lemongrass burners located throughout.
When i got to my room, i did a double take. It was actually a 2 storey loft. When you first walk in, you walk past a small but functional kitchenette and guest bathroom. There is a decent sized sitting area with double storey high windows. The windows overlook a condo with swimming pools on every floor. Amazing!
Anyway, back to the room. You have to go upstairs for the bedroom and bathroom. The bed is super-huge - like 2 queen beds joined together. It was perched in a comfortable loft area. The bathroom had a big bathtub, separate shower area with rainshower heads.
To be honest, the room was a bit big for me and I decided to leave my heels downstairs and had to lug up my suitcase to the second level. Would have been nicer if my husband or family was with me.
The decor was beautify, room was comfortable; bed linens soft and comfy. The lights were not well designed (it seemed like they paid attention to how the overall furnishings looked, but not to the lighting and usability). Sink area wasnt well lit enough, and it took me about 5 minutes every night to figure out which light switches to turn off the lights!
Breakfast was OK. Staff were friendly. Location was fantastic - close to 2 malls (not that I had time to visit), and the BTS and MRT. Room service was decent, and i managed to squeeze in a Thai massage one night, which was heavenly. Note that there is a much cheaper Thai massage place on the ground floor but closes at 8 pm.
I would definitely consider staying here again.
