We just returned from a 3 night stay, and had a mixed experience.
This was our 3rd visit to the hotel, the previous times when it was still Sofitel Silom. We deliberately chose to stay here this time round due to a personal and sentimental reason. Otherwise, we would usually stay at Le Meridien which is just down the road.
The lobby, as many reviewers have mentioned, is totally different from the Sofitel one. Gone are the welcoming Thai traditional uniforms and decor, replaced by a very chic boutique hotel feel. In fact, we felt like we were in Le Meridien!
The check in was smooth, and we were given a room on the 14th floor. Unfortunately, the room was a real disappointment as it was very poorly maintained, and not kept very clean (e.g. the stained fridge door, guest room door). But we thought that since we weren't going to spend too much time in the room, we won't kick any fuss. However, we were shocked at the loud noise that came from the bathroom pipes whenever we used the shower, and worse still, when the guest next door used the shower too. We were thus awakened at 2 am and 7 am when the neightbours used the bathroom.
This was very upsetting for us as we were on a short break to recharge, so not being able to sleep was very unpleasant. We insisted on a rom change in the morning, and after trying to palm off a twin-bedded room, the front office staff finally gave us a great room (which had a king-sized bed). We wished that they would have just accommodated our request straightaway, knowing full well that they had rooms available, rather than trying to get us to agree to a twin room.
The experience was thus not good at all (based on the first night), but was very much better after the room change.
