Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Stayed in family room 1359 . Nicely appointed , clean bathrooms, very good quality linen, free wifi access and close to main markets - mbk, sukumvit, Indra etc. entrance to the hotel is non descript and lobby is small. Breakfast is business like and not eloborate. Staff are friendly. During billing they charged me extra and on enquiry said it was a mistake. Overall a fine hotel
With some class.

Dear Panand1203,

Thanks so much for the great review; it’s heart-warming to know you enjoyed our ‘fine’ and ‘classy’ establishment.

We are often complimented on our superlative staff and convenient location. We are also very pleased to offer great rooms, delicious breakfast and free Wi-Fi; services we think give our hotel a great and memorable ‘home-away-from-home’ vibe.

W shall be pleased to welcome you back any time :-)

Kind regards,

Ms C.Rafferty

Nice hotel, good rooms and good value. Easy access to airport express skytrain. Hotel location would benefit by having a lighted sign which was visible from the skytrain station at night time. Otherwise a good stay and away from the "night lights" of Bangkok.

Dear John-in-Oz.

The first room we were given was terrible. Smells of damp and left you felling itchy. We moved to a second room were the shower spills out over the floor and we are left having to mop up ourselves with towels.

Bathroom is dirty, but its that ingrained dirt not something that can be cleaned.

This is not a western 5 star hotel - 5 star lobby and 3 star rooms.

Avoid.

Room Tip: NEVER take the old wing, always insist on the SIam Wing

Dear brian s,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel; we sincerely value and listen to all customer comments.

We are sorry to hear that our hotel did not live up to your expectations. Generally we receive only positive feedback about our hotel and a 5-star rating for all public areas and rooms. Especially since we unveiled our new-look lobby and bar only a few months ago.

We shall certainly check the room you stayed in immediately and make the necessary repairs. So thanks again for the invaluable feedback.

Kind regards,

Ms Candice Rafferty

I had set the meeting at this hotel last month. First, the new image of this hotel is very so beautiful. and a service that i got from their staff special for the captain. He has very good to took care of our meeting and it made me impressive. Actually, have more than beautiful hotel in bangkok but the best service are rare from the famous five star hotel as from my experienced. I used to set the meeting with the 5 stars hotel more than 10 places. but almost i will got the bad feeling with their sevice.
and another part for sales person are very friendly too. This hotel is flexible not too stick to made me cannot move. We can discusse our request with their staff and find the middle way to do.
Our customer like this hotel too. They are very enjoy with the delicious food at our meeting. and the room stay night is nice in thai style big and comfy with clean and made them convenient to travel by BTS or airport too.

After rebranding from Siam City Hotel to Sukosol hotel, many changes are noticable. New decoration to the common area and lobby, free WiFi is the big change from the old one. The penalty from rebranding is the increasing price.

Dear denpong,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

It’s gratifying to know that you like our new look and complimentary Wi-Fi service.

It’s true that we have raised our prices slightly. But these are in accordance with other five-star hotels in Bangkok and we feel justified in doing so given the fantastic new surrounds and services we are now providing to guests.

We hope to have you back in Bangkok visiting with us again soon.

Kind regards,

Definetly value fr money. One thing thats annoying will be the renovation outside the hotel. Overall, staffs and hotel cleanliness is definetly to my satisfaction.
My room is big and comfy. That's the most important and I really like it.

Location wise is as good too. 5mins away from BTS, 2 stops jus to reach Siam square and access to all shopping malls.
AirportLink is something I like too, fast and clean, way better den taking a Taksi to airport which will be more jam on the way.

Had not tried the hotel breakfast, as I prefer streets food and restauant outside. Will definitely try out and rate the hotel breakfast on my next visit.
