Bangkok is well endowed with classy and inexpensive 5-star hotels. Prominent among them - but not unique - is the Sukhothai.
It is located in the center of Bangkok, but not within walking distance to any notable attraction, street corner or subway station. Very good with car transportation, not ideal for tourists.
From the outside, the excessively plain decoration makes the building appear just like a clean and white block of concrete. Step inside and everything changes. The internal decoration of the lobby, the corridors and the rooms is dominated by local materials such as rough silk, rough stone and polished wood, enhanced by an abundant complement of Thai sculpture and artifacts. The high quality of the fixtures is apparent down to the smallest details. This results in an atmosphere of supreme refinement and peace. The generous size of the rooms does not hurt, neither does their modern equipment including equally generous bathrooms. Service is efficient and low-key, with the soft and kind touch of Thai hospitality.
The dining options are superior, including the plush buffet breakfast, the Thai and Italian restaurant, all offering excellent food; you can't go wrong with any of them.
Don't be fooled by the resort feel of the place: the Sukhothai operates primarily as a business hotel. I know some road warriors who consider it too soothing for business - almost sedate. Others enjoy it as an oasis of calm in the urban chaos that is Bangkok. Pick your side.
