We spent two nights at the Sukhothai and really liked this hotel. It is large and elegant with a sense of occasion. You really feel like you are in a far away jungle, when really you are in the middle of Bangkok. Great atmosphere.
Our room was very large and beautiful. We were honeymooners and were presented with champagne – a nice touch. The linens and upholstery are all exceptionally clean and comfortable.
Big beautiful bathroom with tons of closet space. Our only complaint (and this is REALLY nitpick-y) is that the TV in the center of the room is on a swivel so it can turn 360degrees, which is great except that the wires are all exposed out of the back and it looks a bit messy. We have seen this done more elegant in other hotels. A simple backing of some sort might be a thought for the management.
Lovely pool and pool bar, wish we could have spent more time there. Spa looked very nice and clean as well.
The hotel staff members are so nice and polite. But over the rest of our two-week honeymoon we came to discover this is generally true throughout Thailand. They are the most gentle, hospitable people. Breakfast was very good with a big selection across many cultures. We loved the outdoor bar over the lily pond for late night drinks.
The only piece of advice I would give is not to try to take a taxi anywhere from this hotel during rush hour traffic. Take the sky train, which is a bit of a walk. We booked a river dinner cruise (with Manohra Cruise – just ok food but beautiful scenery) and we tried to take a taxi at 6pm on a Friday. We literally went 100meters (300feet+) in half an hour. Our poor cab driver got hold of the Sukhothai by phone for us and a staffer, Toom, from the front desk ran out to meet us at the taxi and ran us all the way to the SkyTrain so we wouldn’t miss the cruise. Talk about service! We would have gotten lost and missed our dinner for sure if he hadn’t come to the rescue.
Thanks Sukhothai for a great visit to Bangkok!
