“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

This was my second visit to Sofitel So and I was just as awestruck as I was a year ago! We spent 2 nights here, in a Lumpini Park-facing 'Earth' room. The room was superb: I love the décor, the bed, and the freestanding bath tub. Throughout the hotel, the staff were incredibly friendly, polite, attentive and professional. We ate breakfast in Red Oven both days, spent time in the lobby bar, and an afternoon by the pool, and I could not have asked more from the staff. They really went out of their way to be helpful and friendly - and this alone would be enough to draw me back. But add the great design, fantastic rooms, lovely pool, and what I think is one of the best views of any hotel in Bangkok - the Bangkok skyline with Lumpini Park in the foreground is stunning - and you've got a truly excellent hotel. I have to agree with a previous reviewer that this hotel just gets better and better, and I hope to visit again.

This is not my first stay at the So, in fact I have stayed here often but unlike some places that get a little stale after a few visits the Sofitel So just gets better and better. If you are unsure about where to stay then look no further, great hotel, excellent rooms but by far the most important thing about the So is the brilliant staff. They make you feel like your home and part of their family. We can't wait to go back

For an avid business traveller, the hotel i stay in is of paramount importance as the hotel then becomes my abode, my office and my unseen companion. Having been to bangkok many times before and having always chosen my usual suspects, this time i decided to spend more time finding out about the new hotels and i was glad i stumbled upon So Sofitel. Right from picking me up from the airport and whizzing me past the traffic in a cool Mini Cooper ( the green tea inside the car was a welcome surprise) , my 3 days with So had a great start. The hotel is located in a great business district, the blue room on the 23rd floor gave me sizzling views of the city and the rooms were spacious with the biggest surprise being the IT infra provided within the rooms ( apple tv, menu on tv etc).

I found a friend in Mr Ing and my travel advisor whether it came to planning my trip to the business meetings or be it for a quick tour of the city and even shopping for my wife. I would highly recommend you all to give Ing a call so that he can help you plan even before you start your trip. Gem of a bloke !

Amenities are spotless and generous. Great swimming pool, gym and sumptuous breakfast. All in all, it was a delightful 3 days and whether i go solo or with my family to Bangkok, it has to be at So Sofitel. Nothing else comes closer and like i said, your search for your stay stops here !

Great stuff guys !

Room Tip: blue rooms are pretty good with a great view of the city skyline

The most stunning hotel we have had the pleasure to stay in. 'Gorgeous' is the only way to describe the decor and style of this well situated hotel. Simply beautiful - contemporary, stylish and funky. The service we received was impeccable. Our daughter had a small accident and the staff, including managers and the wonderful Paul, were supportive beyond our imagination. The roof top bar which overlooks Lumphini Park and the city of Bangkok and the stunning infinity pool are other special features of this hotel. We promise to return!
