To me this a perfect hotel to stay. Rooms are beautiful and breakfast spread very good. All staff are friendly and service excellent. MRT line to Nana or Asoke just less than 5 mins walk. Front office staff are excellent especially "Charlie" who provide exceptional service. Love the pool and the Gym. Less than 5 mins is Terminal 21 shopping mall where I go shopping and night market just down the road. Many restaurants nearby and opposite the hotel is the Korean town where one gets the best korea restaurant. Will certain stay again when in Bangkok.

I stayed there with my brother in December. We had a great stay. The employees' smile makes it a very good hotel. The greeting is impressive. The Front Office is quick and efficient. We asked for some help at the Concierge... very helpful. The swimming pool is very pleasant if you like to swim. It is a bit pity that there are not too much sun, but the atmosphere is very nice. Thank you to all your staff for this excellent quality of service.

We are stay in Sofitel Sukhumvit on January 2nd, 2013 & this is our first time stay in this Hotel. the hotel is great. many thanks to the receptionist girl that handle me when i'm check in, ms.Wimolnant, J. ; she really helpful & nice. she asked me about which room i prefer, smoking or non smoking; asking about my check out schedule; offering to help me to confirm with my flight; asking me about what time that i want for the morning call, remind me about the time that i have to be at the airport and ask me everything politely. Thank you very much, ms.Wimolnant.
The staff were friendly, polite, helpful & have a quite good english. the room is very nice, with separate bath tub & shower. the location is good since they are near to Nana BTS Station, many people sell souvenir, shirts, etc at the sidewalk in front of the hotel. easy to reach Siam Paragon & MBK from hotel.
a little problem when the remote of the TV & the safe deposit box is not work properly. but they are handling the problem fast.
my dislike of this hotel is :
1. the variation of the food, my son have a meal in the pool & we (family) have a dinner in the restaurant on 2nd fl. but the staff is nice & helpful.
2. no free shuttle service from & to the airport.
But my overall score is Excellent...i will recommend it to my friends & colleagues & i will definitely come back..

I stay in Bangkok hotels about 30 nights a year total, and have done so for the last 15 years or so. It's safe to say that I have pretty much stayed in them all. I am looking for a new favorite, and was really excited at the new Sofitel, but unfortunately it has two fatal flaws.

Apart from that, it is a great hotel. Really. The breakfast buffet is lovely for variety, layout and quality, the rooms are super. The lighting scheme in the bathroom is probably the nicest in any hotel I have ever stayed. Shower is superb. The Illy cafe machine in the room is fiddly but a nice inclusion. Decor is luxury but not ostentatious or worse, pretentiously minimalist in an attempt to save money by pleading the trendy card. Location cannot be beat.

So what's the issue?

1) The (very lovely resort) swimming pool is located on the north side of the hotel. This means it gets NO SUN between 11 am and 3 pm. Seriously, why would any semi-intelligent hotel designer do this? This hotel is not alone btw but it's criminally stupid nonetheless. Why build a beautiful hotel for hundreds of millions of dollars in a tropical resort/business location and make the pool functionally useless?

I am neither an architect nor an astronomer, but even I can figure out that for a northern hemisphere hotel, you have to put the pool on the south side of the building???

So, #1. You cannot tan or sit by a sunny pool at this 5* hotel in Thailand. Which for most people I think is pretty much the point of going there. And, this isn't fixable. Unless they rebuild the property.

2) The wifi is unusable.

I don't quite know what to say that will get through to these hotel people. This is 2013. Wifi is not an option for a 5* hotel in a business city. Or anywhere, for that matter. Everyone is 3G connected at home (or at least everyone who will pay US$300 for a hotel room is) and when you travel, it's bad enough to lose that ability as you move around, but it's unforgivable in your hotel. Connectivity is as important as sleep or food & drink. Very often, connectivity is the basis for whatever business enables you to give them $300 a night. People rely upon their hotel for connectivity in foreign countries. It really is as simple as that. And if you make it a palaver, they will not stay with you again.

For $300, their website claims free wifi. But once there, you figure out it is so slow as to be all but unusable. The shockingly venal next step though, is that THEY KNOW THIS. So, they give you the option for another US$8 daily to pay to get a faster connection. This astounds me. It's bait and switch. And, of course the old "two devices only" cheat as well.

Note to hotel management everywhere: 2 travelers in one room in 2013 = 4 devices. At least.

There is a seedy sports bar next door that sells beers for 50 baht. Their internet connection is fast and free. No long username or PW palavers and no BS. If this tiny business can figure it out, why can't a $100 million hotel? Why make something so crucial, so appallingly difficult?

So, at my business hotel, I cant send or receive emails.
And at my Thai resort hotel, I can't go to the pool.

It's a criminal shame. Because I really like the hotel.

We stayed here for two nights in a Prestige Suite and although the room was very good, there were some issues that should be addressed.

The location can be good or bad - depending on what you want. It is certainly in the heart of the touristy Sukhumvit area, however, some may see that as a negative.

My first disappointment was that there was no recognition for Le Club Accor Platinum members, although this problem seems inherent throughout the Accor group.

The Prestige Suite (room 3001) was impressive and quite spacious with great views from the balcony, so there were no problems with the room. The bed was very comfortable and the decor was modern.

We had breakfast in the Club Millesime lounge as opposed to the main dining area and on both mornings we were there, we were the only guest taking that option, however, there was still plenty of choice of food and the quality was good.

I was disappointed with the pool area however and what surprised me was the condition of some of the furniture and fittings - bearing in mind the hotel has only been open for eight months.

For example, the plastic decking surrounding the pool was already showing signs of fading, the steel frames on the sun loungers were stained and already starting to rust, some tiles and fittings in the water feature opposite the spa were rust stained and the tiling in the pool at water level was already badly stained. The palm trees needed their dead leaves removing which would have improved their appearance.

The majority of these issues could be resolved by just simple housekeeping and preventative maintenance.

Another downside of the pool area (for me) was that the sun goes behind the hotel at around 11:30.

The housekeeping in the rooms seemed fine - other than having my Herme's amenities replenished with L'Occitane on the second morning - I put this down to error as opposed to penny pinching!

The Millesime lounge was a very nice area to relax and I was impressed with the size and decor and how the dining area, lounge and bar were all separated. Drinks were replenished quickly during happy hour and the staff were courteous, efficient and friendly - in particular Joceline who was really nice.

Overall I did enjoy my stay and I would probably stay here again but some of the issues mentioned need to be sorted out.
