A good value stay in the middle of upmarket Thonglor with many cafes, nice restaurants and nearby clubbing scene in Ekamai.
Shall try the famous duck noodle and Audrey's cafe as well as Khanom bakery and After You Dessert next to J town.

We stayed there for 2 days. Very good location, surrounded by many restaurants. They offered free tuk-tuk service to the BTS, 5 minutes top to the station. I think actually the tuk-tuk is owned by the property, not random taxi service. Great for the travellers to shopping, only took us 5-6 stops to the Central World.
The swimming pool is fantastic. We could enjoy the breakfast by the pool.

We spent 10 days with our 3 kids in a 2-bedroom topf-floor suite while looking for a house in the Thonglor area, where we plan to move in a couple of months, and enjoying a holiday at the same time. To sum up our impressions: great location, great service (staff is so friendly), great amenities (comfy beds, "infinity"-type swimming pool, gym...), friendly hotel tuk-tuk (who would take us anywhere in the close neighborhood even if it was not one of the "planned" routes"); the only room for improvement would be the breakfast, as other users have mentioned, particularly for late-comers, with no more croissants, limited choice of stuff. It looks more like a serviced-apartment-type of breakfast than a hotel breakfast. But here again, the staff and the location (by the pool) were great. Overall, a very good memory for us all.

Room Tip: While at it, ask for a top-floor room. The view on the surrounding areas in late afternoon are great...

We stayed at SST on leisure, for 6 days. While we did spend most of our time outside of this property, we still had the chance to appreciate how nice it was: spacious rooms, general layout, room amenities, restaurant, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great: Thonglor neighborhood is perhaps one of the best in BKK. One very minor wrinkle: the rainshower knob (switch) did not seem to work, so no rainshower (we reported this only after we left), but otherwise the bathroom was very nice: no leaking water (like in many hotels), good lights, size, and so on. We did not try the infinity pool, but it did look impressive. We will definitely return, next time for a longer stay and with kids.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a small balcony if you are a smoker.

We had an amazing time at the hotel. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They were also super helpful keeping us dry during the festivities. The food was good and they had a very good selection of wines, which is rare in Asia.

The arranged reservations at a multitude of activities from massages and manicures to fine dinning reservations. I would definitely stay there again. And the internet special was a great deal.

Room Tip: The room was quiet, had a much needed deep bath tub and plenty of hot water. Everything was quiet a...

We were here for the Thai New Year, and because of the business nature of the area, there was only one place where they were throwing water on the entire street (reasonably, not wild). its a great location. Right across the street there is a small plaza with restaurants, Starbucks, and a grocery store (TOPS Market). Tons of ATMs, Banks, seven elevens, restaurants, tour offices, massage parlors up and down the street, and if you walk 10 minutes or less you can reach the BTS (or use the complimentary shuttle). Also if the market across the street is closed, there is a 24hr Foodland about 5 min walking distance.

We stayed in a one bedroom executive apartment on the 27th floor (#2710), and it was clean, modern, and well furnished. I didn't like the layout of the living, dining, kitchen, but the bathroom and bedroom were gorgeous. The free internet connection was good, and the TV channels had a lot of selection.

The staff is polite, friendly, and speaks, good english.

The pool was ok, not as impressive as it is on the photos, but clean and with an infinity view. The gym was great, lots of machines, great view, and clean.

The only thing i was not satisfied with, is the breakfast selection. This is the first time as vegetarians that we have encountered a problem in a hotel. Everything had pork in it. Pork and rice, bacon strips, pork and noodles, etc. Even the baked potatoes and little slices of sausage in them (which i didn't realize until it was too late, since the label only said "baked potatoes"). Even the salad bar area didn't have a single dressing without egg in it. We paid for the breakfast with our hotel room, so we were really disappointed. We just cooked for ourselves the remaining days...

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors.

I have been staying here at the Somerset Thonglor for 5 weeks as a long-term resident. I have waited to write a review until now. My overall thoughts are below:

PROS
- Good location near Thonglor BTS
- Relatively new and modern facility
- Service staff is very customer service oriented, it's really nice
- Tastefully designed with modern amenities
- Great modern bathrooms with deep soak tubs
- Nice plug and play sound system for Ipad
- Option to upgrade to 6 MBPS internet with added wireless option for multiple devices

CONS
- Maid service isn't focused enough on complete cleaning. You have to press them to do a more proper deeper cleaning. As one example, they were only sweeping my hardwood floors and after 2 weeks I asked them to start mopping.
- Some rooms have ackward layouts and unusable space such as mine
- Should probably be a second tuk tuk for transportation since the primary one is very often in use.
