We stayed at Sofitel So for 6 nights over the New Years period and it was absolutely amazing. We had access to the Club Signature which made it extra special. We requested a Wood Element room which was more our style. Exactly as shown in photos. The room was very large and comfortable. We had an amazing view of Lumphini Park. Bed was very comfortable and no issue with external noise. Bathrooms very nice. Would have preferred soaps and shampoos to be from a high end brand, rather than filled in pump bottles. But this is a very minor observation. Also, the lights in the bathroom was wired incorrectly so that you couldn't actually turn on certain lights without others being on.
The staff were super friendly and very professional. Loved the uniforms on both the men and women! The Club Signature made for an extra special experience. Breakfast in the Club was superb. Made to order. We did try the breakfast buffet on the lower floor once, but it didn't compare to breakfast at the Club Signature. Standard buffet breakfast. We had been spoilt at the Club Signature so never went back! Afternoon tea also provided, which we only tried once and evening cocktails, which we experienced most nights before heading out to dinner. Just a very nice touch.
Having Club Signature access also meant 2 items of clothes laundered everyday and discount to the Spa which we used. The Spa was beautiful and very relaxing.
There is a chocolate lab downstairs which made the entrance smell like chocolate every time you walk pass! Divine!
In terms of location, the walk to the BTS was about 10mins - so not super close. It is next to Lumphini MRT, which we used a few times, but not as convenient as using the BTS.
I've stayed at the W before in Bangkok and I found the W tried a little too hard to be stylish, whereas Sofitel So had the right balance of sophistication and style.
Definitely recommend this hotel.
