The Sofitel's staff is so welcoming and try to make your stay very comfortable. Guest rooms are quite nice and fairly spacious. Breakfast buffet is wonderful.... what a variety of food! I'll be returning :)

Every nationality is catered for at the buffet breakfast - Asian, Middle Eastern, European - even Australian. The staff there are very attentive and go out of their way to assist in any way possible. The swimming pool had a few nice service surprises after our morning swim too. You don't have to ask, it just happens.
In the room it was the same, attention to the smallest detail was consistently taken care of.
Our conference rooms had appropriate equipment available (that worked for the full week). With small rooms available for break out sessions. Then there was the morning and afternoon teas - what a variety of finger food! Excellent. Definitely excellent value for money. Very convenient to the train system and shopping centers too.

I chose Sofitel Sukhumvit as I wanted a comfortable base and centrally located hotel that provided a welcome that is needed when you arrive off a long-haul flight all hot and tired. The service and style lived up to expectations with the bedroom and bathroom being particularly impressive. The outdoor pool was very welcome and provided a nice break from the rushing city traffic below.

Room Tip: Select a room overlooking the pool on a high floor if you can.

Spent a couple of nights there on a working trip to BKK. It is one of my favorite hotel in Sukhumvit. Some room are being discounted on web sites, and you can get a 4 star plus stay for a very descent price. As usual, the breakfast is really enjoyable (did not have diner that time), and the service is excellent. I will definitely return.

Very good central location in Sukhumvit, modern clean, helpful staff, all you need. I had severely injured my hamstring and staff went ll out for me, nothing too small they couldn't do for me. As I couldn't walk very far, we ate at hotel for all meals. Never disappointed. Dinners and lunch were quite good, service was good. We would return to Sofitel next time we are in Bangkok.

The Sofitel is an oasis of chill out and bliss in the heart of the bustle of Sukhumvit. Perhaps it is the pool area where the attendants neatly fold out your towel with care. Perhaps it's first wave of the air conditioning with the signature Sofitel scent of the lobby after a long and sweaty day in the city. Perhaps it's the thoughtful appointments in the luxury room like shades around the bath tub or the closet with access from both the room hallway and the bathroom.

I don't have any prior experience with the Sofitel brand, so I'm a newbie, but I really liked what I saw and felt. As a pure tourist, the location situated between Nana and Asok BTS stops is really hard to top. The BTS just works for me. Traffic is too much to bear in a taxi when the BTS is right there with the air con raging to beat the heat. The Sofitel actually is closer to Nana, so keep that in mind for arrivals.

The handling process of check-in and getting the luggage to the room was flawless. The room itself was grand and it was "just" a luxury room. Quite possibly I have seen the largest king size bed in existence. Nice touches were the chaise by the windows. A very nice place to relax and take in the night view of the city as our room overlooked the back of the hotel (pool area). Other nice touches included the shades in the bathroom that either offer privacy or just the opposite to the person in the bath tub. L'Octaine is standard for soap, shampoo, and gels.

The bedding was just divine and finally a hotel room where lighting was logical to control! Nothing like being baffled in 2014 as to where something as simple as bathroom lights are located. Regretfully I didn't get to check out the hotel gym. The pool area however was a big plus. Frankly, I liked the minimalistic design to it. Nice and gentle walk-in steps will be appreciated by parents with kids or those that need a more eased approach to entering/exiting a pool.

Our time in Bangkok was busy so there was no need to eat or drink at the hotel. There is a roof top bar I am told, but we didn't get there, rather we spent time at Octave at the Marriott for an "essential" bangkok rooftop night out.

As a frequent traveler to Bangkok, I'm actually quite fond of staying in Sukhumvit. The access to the BTS is a huge plus as I mentioned before. While the area is clearly touristy, the obvious benefit is a plethora of things to do and places to eat/drink/shop.The Sofitel is just steps away from the bustle that is Bangkok but the hotel is a haven of bliss and relaxation. Enjoy.

We normally book boutique, independent hotels and avoid the brands....so glad we didn't do it this time! Sofitel Sukhumvit Bangkok is a great choice.
Great location in both area and transport access wise...then add to that a very professionally run hotel, cool interiors, great facilities and of course fantastic staff...whats not to like!!!
Very good pool area and a good gym. Well layed out pool and cool bar. Loads of kit n weights in the gym. Great little sauna. Gym open 24hrs....so no excuses, you can burn off the great cocktails from the hotels rooftop bar! They serve the best mojito I have had...and I have had lots! Lol.
Breakfast is not the usual kind of mass buffet thing but nice small areas of speciality elements to make up whatever takes your fancy. Great breads and pastries. Cool fresh juices squeezed for you, good coffee and so much more...breakfast is a must do in this hotel...couldn't miss it.
Good sized rooms with great beds.
(As I type this a cool vibe around the pool is going on, cool tunes and cold drinks, tough life eh? Lol)
A nice bar on ground floor or a rooftop experience...you choose...or BOTH, good choice.
Close to two skytrain stations. Easy walk to terminal 21 shopping mall, restaurants and bars near by to suit all tastes.
All in all this is a great choice for anyone in Bangkok, either your first time or your hundredth time makes no difference its a great hotel.

Room Tip: Higher the better as always to increase your views. All room standards are good so choice is easy.
