Nice rooms, great food, outstanding service, all amenities, beautiful design (kudos to Christian Lacroix). I have no negative comments on this hotel. They got everything right. Will definitely go back when Bangkok calms down.

Stayed twice over my visit to Thailand in December and January and I loved it. From the time you walk it to the moment you leave you feel pampered and very well taken care of. The breakfast is vast and has anything you can imagine - from fresh fruit and viennoiserie to cooked eggs and you can take it outside with the view of the park. The spa suites are amazing but I will let you confirm that when sitting on the hot tub on your own balcony outside. The rooftop bar was also a must. I can't praise this hotel enough and the location is perfect being close to everything, night markets, cool restaurants - this is the hotel to book when in Bangkok!

Room Tip: Loved the suite in the water section.

It was our first time together in Bangkok at the end of a short trip around Thailand, and we wanted to finish with a bang. We wanted somewhere luxurious where we could relax, but also convenient enough that we would be able to see the sights of the busy city, and this stunning hotel absolutely delivered on these demands. When we arrived from the airport, tired after a long journey by sea and air, we certainly felt underdressed as we walked into the suave hotel lobby. Despite our unkempt appearance the staff were very friendly and we settled in quickly. The room was spacious and beautifully designed, although the views weren't as spectacular as we'd hoped. However we soon found the views we were after at the rooftop restaurant bar, and the amazing infinity pool where we started most of our evenings.

The hotel is well-connected by the local MRT station, but you do have to cross an extremely busy street to get to it. That connection is essential as the traffic in the area is solid all day and most of the night, so forget about taxis except in the wee hours of the morning. Using the trains and skyway it was easy enough to reach all the main sightseeing and shopping areas of Bangkok from the Sofitel.

The price for the hotel seemed quite steep, although we've never stayed in Bangkok before so have nothing to judge it by. Even so we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking to do Bangkok in style.
