The Sukhothai Hotel has always been my favorite hotel sanctuary in Bangkok throughout the past two decades. I've stayed at many different hotels in Bangkok over the years (and in different locations due to business/conferences/client preference/visiting family preferences, etc.) but given the choice, I will always choose the Sukhothai as it's truly a hidden sanctuary in the middle of the city (although the location is not in the hub of shopping/entertainment, it's only a quick/cheap taxi ride away; and precisely because the hotel is located far off the street, and not surrounded by construction, it's stunningly quiet). On this most recent trip to Bangkok, I first had to stay a few days in a noisy city hotel (chosen by a client who wanted to be near our meetings) which was a claustrophobic and not particularly pleasant experience. As a reward to myself, I booked myself into the Sukhothai for my final two days in Bangkok; as always, it was like walking into blissful, stress-free and beautifully under-stated elegance. It is by far one of the most beautifully designed city hotels in Bangkok. The hotel is named after the Sukhothai Dynasty, which is known as a period when the arts flourished, and the design/architecture throughout the hotel reflects this--it's both aesthetic and restful to the eye and mind. At the same time, one is utterly pampered with modern amenities and expected comfort of a 5-star hotel (which at the Sukhothai always feels like a resort in a city to me). The pool is heavenly (and quiet), with tented areas, and lush tropical surroundings (including body pillows to lie close to the pool edge; too easy to lie by the pools for hours in a meditative stupor). Excellent small gym that I used both days at the hotel (if for no other reason then to make caloric room for the fabulous Thai food (in such a beautiful atmosphere) at the hotel restaurant Celadon and the amazing breakfast spread at the Colannade. I had no time to eat at La Scala this trip, but highly recommend it for their superb Italian cuisine. I've always loved the rooms at the Sukhothai...luxurious, tasteful and art-oriented and I always book a room with a sun terrace to sit outside amid the view of lotus ponds. Finally, I also enjoy the hotel as it tends to cater to business people and couples and therefore there are few children (hence, the wonderfully quiet atmosphere in the hotel). All in all, just bliss.

Room Tip: Rooms around the ponds w/balconies are my favorite (and of course, the suites....).

Good location, near the river and just a quick taxi ride away from some of the hot spots in the city. Chic and modern, nice comfy rooms where we had a "pillow menu" (I got the lavender pillow - very nice). We chose the breakfast package and were blown away by the huge, delicious breakfast spread! Definitely worth the money because it kept us going for hours! The one complaint is that the first night we stayed they had a wedding on the grounds that played music and kept us up late into the night. We loved the pool but didn't eat at any of the restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the courtyard!

4th stay at Hotel - and one of major disappointment.

This is a difficult review to post, as I had such high expectations from previous visits, and therefore I find this a very sad posting - this was a hotel which I viewed as being one of my favourite in the world to stay - however following my last visit.......
We had to request room change due to odour in room, drains?? - New room poorly presented......dirty carpets in corridors, odour in corridors - drab lighting, not the overall ambiance that a 5* should present. Currently waiting on reply from Management to e-mail I sent 8 Jan, covering all aspects of this disappointing visit - unfortuantely to date no reply.

Massive decline in standards since 1st visit in 2009, and looking online there are better options. Had planned this trip round spending Christmas in this Hotel - were we disappointed - yes. Did we have a good customer experience - no.

We stayed for three days and loved it! The staff reads your mind and does everything to make you feel extremely comfortable. The pay attention to the little things. In particular I liked the different fruits every day, which came with a little brochure telling you something about this exotic fruit of which some I had never seen before.

Room Tip: Try the Thai massage!

A great property, low density, enjoying calmness in this oasis in the middle of Bangkok. Great room and beautiful bathroom. Big pool, great food. Very nice staff too.
