Stayed with a couple of friends for 3 nights at the end of August. Although some aspects of the hotel are a little dated, this is still such a cool hotel. In a city of high risers and amidst the mayhem of Bangkok, The Sukhothai is a tranquil oasis of greenery, flowing water, great service and very comfortable rooms. The bathrooms have been recently updated with rain showers and the rooms have new modern integrated TVs and iPod docs. Mine all worked well, although I notice in other reviews people had problems getting these high tech gadgets to work. My room was a good size, very clean and had an extremely comfortable bed.
I think the pool area is by far the best of any hotel that I have stayed at in Bangkok and if spending a day lounging in the sun is what you’re up for, then this is the place to do it. The gym was also well equipped and had trainers on hand.
The hotel attracts a chic international crowd and I would stay here any day over other places I’ve tried such as The Metropolitan, Banyan Tree, Conrad, Pathumwan Princess or the Sofitel.More
