Stunning hotel

Review of SO/ BANGKOK
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 10, 2015via mobile
We were upgraded upon arrival and had the choice between the Wooden themed room or Earth - which we went for. The room is fantastic, spacious, clean, and overall just really impressive.
The hotel as a whole is just beautiful and the staff are very helpful, kind and always willing to accommodate.
I would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone.
Be sure to check out the rooftop bar and pool which both offer breathtaking views.

Our stay at the Sofitel So Bangkok was simply excellent. The rooms, onsite facilities, and restaurants were to a very high standard and the service we received throughout was impeccable. I have stayed in a number of Accor properties over the last few years and I would have to say this is one of the best, and mainly because of the service levels - every member of staff couldn't do enough for you and made your stay personal. I would definitely come back the next time I am in Bangkok! In fact I cant wait to come back!!

Fab hotel for a quick getaway! This is the 2nd time we stay at the "Club" with Sofitel. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The cocktails, the staff and every tiny little thing was taken care of. The pool, the spa, the food, everything was excellent. It is right next to the Lumpini Park. We went on a quick cycling trip around the park using the hotel's bikes. Great way to spend a morning. The location of the hotel is very convenient - walking distance to MRT. TBH, we didn't leave the hotel very much though. Highly recommended and will definitely come back for it.

I stayed there for two nights back in November, and was quite impressed and felt guilty not to share my experience. The hotel is located central and my so comfy room was overlooking beautiful park. Our check in was on the 7th floor (as I remember) and we were seated near the glass window in the lounge. The welcome experience was fascinating with a molecular like drink that turned purple. We were given $60 food and beverage voucher, which we immediately used for our afternoon champagne. The service was subtle and not overwhelming, yet attentive and polite.

I liked the idea of booking the room based on your element, hence, wood was predominately featured in this room with great his/her amenities and spacious bathroom. Both shower and bath are functioning very well, but the floor is super cold after a steaming shower. The turndown service with a jasmine on the pillow is a very elegant touch.

Breakfast deserves a whole chapter. I can honestly say that I have never tried such an amazing breakfast experience in any other city hotels in the world. Everything you wanted is there: asian, western, great selection of hot and cold dishes, fresh juices and fruits. The design is absolutely fabulous: reminded me of the morning markets where you can get fresh food and pastries. After having morning coffee, we were offered some nice donut with chocolate sauce.

I would usually try different hotels when I come to the same city, but it would be incredibly hard to choose another one that will live up to this standard in Bangkok for a business trip.
