“So Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We were both delighted our overall experience at the hotel, we stayed in the Metal themed room, which was well layed out with a fantastic bathroom with a huge bath which was put to good use. Staff were excellent from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. The breakfasts are fantastic with so much selection it creates a great opportunity for a slow and long breakfast. We will certainly stay there again next time we are in Bangkok

The hotel staffs are friendly, courtesies and helpfulness, always attending to your needs whenever or wherever you request. The hotel atmosphere overall is excellent, it combined a French modernity, elegance design with a truly Thai style smile service.

I would recommend people come into stay and enjoy. Not only have an amazing skyline view, through over you can see entire greenery Lumphini Park right in front of you. Also good location with convenient transportation placed surround, and their Spa treatment will make you feel So Bangkok in Luxe..

First visit to the Sofitel So, my wife and I were very impressed on entry. Staff very helpful, especially the guide guru, Paul. Anything you want to know about where to go, or what to do, ask Paul.
Rooms are wonderfully decorated, very comfortable, and all little amenities one may require.
Breakfast is unbelievable with a choice for all nationalities. We cannot fault anything about the hotel except a minor difficulty of obtaining in house information on the smart television such as how to phone another apartment, and no iron in the room. Being old and not ofay with computer workings we had fun trying to work it all out. Without a doubt if we would love to return. It is a real 5 star hotel.

Room Tip: I think all rooms would be fantastic.

We stayed in a Wood themed room which was fantastic!!! We were really impressed with the service offered by the hotel. Rooms were well equipped, clean and well laid out and thought out! The location is good - a short walk to the MTR and to the markets. A short and cheap taxi ride to the shopping areas! All in all a Fantastic experience! We also had a massage at the spa at the hotel which was lovely!

As a frequent biz traveller,and an artist i have stayed in many many hotels.most of the time, city hotels choices goes by whats convenient. so wen recommended to stay here,i thot..ok, its near the station and night market n easy for meetings...but how different can it be?And then , i was SOOOOOO taken away by the view from my room, the details that goes into the decor ( i have my fave monkeys every on the curtains ) ,the amazing high tech connectivity anywhere in the hotel, and most importantly..the service- whilst attentive, its not pretentious and smouldering..; I will be BACK !! ( oooh ohh , almost forgot,the Club Signature is very conducive for meeting and inspiring! felt like i was in a contemporary arts museum instead !! )

second stay in this great hotel and once again SO great and good.
From the first step in to the last step out, all was perfect.
service mind, smile, little touches and details everywhere for the pleasure of our eyes...
Love the room especially 2605, question of colors as well design
Will stay again for sure.
Definitely much better than W Bangkok

Room Tip: 2605 has a great view on Bangkok as well if you like dark colors

Having you staying us for the second time was absolutely a great pleasure. So looking forward to your third visit and more!
We can't be happier to know that you enjoyed the room 2605, however, we'll tempt you to try other room elements as well as massage treatment at So Spa so that you will be pampered & relaxed!
