I am always obsessed with the Southeast Asian countries, Thailand definitely will be on the top of my list. I spent three nights staying at Sofitel So Bangkok for my solo trip earlier this year. If I remembered correctly the hotel opened in early 2012, so everything looks brand new. It is located in Lumpini area within walking distance from the nearest MRT station.
The design is definitely the highlight of the property, you will feel the chic and stylish design once stepping into the Lobby. The interiors are purely inspired by the traditional elements in the East culture known as Mental, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth, which distinctly creates four themed-room type for guests to choose from.The staff gave me the Earth themed room per my request upon Check In.
Hotel staff are so accommodating and helpful, given the protests and unstable political situation during my stay, I did rely on the staff to offer proper advice for my city exploration as well as feed me the latest updates. It turned out to be the staff were so helpful and reliable, which really impressed me.
I did enjoy a very pleasant trip in Bangkok, even though i was unable to check out certain tour spots in the city. Just save it to my next trip and more to be discovered.
