Reviewed June 27, 2006

I prepaid a room online down the road at the "Comfort Suites" airport hotel (see review), which turned out to be a nightmare. After returning to the airport with the intention of spending the night there instead of the disgusting Comfort Suites, I found Sofitel, which is located about 15 minutes from the airport. The difference that $100 USD made was night and day. I'd recommend saving yourself the trouble of trying to find a better bargain, and opting for the Sofitel to begin w/. I wish I'd done that.

We stayed here on our stopover in Bangkok before flying home to the UK in April 2006. We chose the Sofitel because of it's proximity to the airport and the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I agree with everything that has been written before, except that they really need to smarten up their act at Check in reception. They took an eternity to check guests in and therefore there were always queues of people waiting. We were able to observe this as we had to wait for an hour and a half as our room had not been serviced and was unavailable when we arrived. The staff were also not as friendly as we had experienecd in our other hotels in Chiang Mai or Phuket.

Fortunately these was our only gripes with what is a very nice hotel in Bangkok and is in the main good value for money.

I totally agree with the review from Jan 2006. I read all the reviews on the hotels close to the airport and none of them seemed all the great. I ended up booking the Sofitel Central. I also paid $71/night but that included a huge buffet breakfast. I even had a cappucino with breakfast.
We met another couple that paid over $200 to stay at the Amari at the airport so I think this is a great value.
The rooms were a little old, but clean. (Carpet was pretty dirty but the rest of the room was okay.)
You had to take a cab to the Chatchuchak (sp?) mkt. but it was only around $1.
We were with another couple and we had a lot of luggage so we booked a van from the Airport Taxi stand just outside of baggage. It was only $20 the first time and a little less than $20 the second time we used a van.
It was very convenient being next to the mall --just a short walk across the parking ramp.

Agree with some other postings that this is one of the best value options near the airport.

Comfortable, quite quiet and reasonably priced for a short stopover.
