“Great hotel, nice rooms, superb service”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Stayed here for two nights on my way through BKK coming home from my holiday. It's a great place if you're looking to relax for a couple of days, and offers superb value for money. The gym is good, and the pool/sun deck area is great for catching a few rays. The rooms are nice too - I recommend the 'earth' rooms. The service is probably the best thing about the Sofitel So though. The management went out of their way to compensate me for some issues with my booking, and Laila in Guest Relations is an asset to Sofitel - she went beyond the call of duty to help us out with things a couple of times. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Earth rooms are nice

5 REASONS YOU WANT TO STAY AT SOFITEL SO BANGKOK

1. That unmistakable Thai hospitality. From the moment you arrive til the day you leave. We had the privilege to be served by Laila, one of their ever attentive guest relations officers. Their uniforms designed by Christian Lacroix is also a feast to the eyes.

2. Storytelling. A stay at Sofitel So Bangkok is like being part of a storied journey. The complimentary welcome drink is accompanied with a Thai fable, under-the-water projections on the Lobby's elevator floor, Siamese fighting fish in mini aquariums that adorns your room to the conversation pieces dotting around the hotel.

3. Lumpini Park. It's safe to say that Sofitel So Bangkok has the best view of the park. Reminiscent to Central Park, New York. All of it's restaurants, bars & pool boasts this spectacular view and make sure you request for the SO COMFY water element room to get the best park view in the house.

4. The Infinity Pool. A great place to just wind down and bask under the sun. Swim mid-air & wade along the edges. And if you like a touch of Bangkok's social scene, Sofitel So Pool Party is the party to attend is becoming a staple in Bangkok's social calendar.

5. The Room. We picked the SO COMFY room with water element theme. LOVE IT! There's a nook for your luggage which also acts as a little boudoir and on the other side is the bathroom with a bathtub overlooking Lumpini Park. And oh, all of the items in the mini bar is on the house and also comes with a coffee machine. HEAVEN!

I know I will be returning to this hotel soon. Thank you!

Room Tip: Request for the SO COMFY room (Water theme) facing the Lumpini Park. You won't regret it.

I stayed at the hotel 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is beautiful as it has been designed by Christian Lacroix.... and has a beautiful view on Lumpini Park !!
The rooms are great but what I liked the most was the system on the TV ! You can have all info needed on the hotel, the city, menus... but you can also transform it into a computer and charge your emails, music, content very easily thanks to the MacMini System ! Another way to feel like home :)
I really do recommend this hotel.

This hotel was our first stay in Bangkok and it was fantastic. It feels brand new, hip, and too notch service. The view is amazing overlooking this giant park, with nice rooms, an amazing infinity pool, the best brunch of my life (included) and for an amazing price. I really didn't want to leave the hotel.
