“Great for location.”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

In my opinion, If focus on location, it is good enough but about the facilities is not worth for the money.

I stayed there for one week for business. It is a large, dull and soulless hotel in a part of Bangkok that has little going for it appart from the adjacent mall. It is an ordinary convention/wedding hotel.
I stayed in a Deluxe Executive Suite which in pretentious and misleading marketing terms translate into a larger than standard room with access to the executive lounge and where a large bathtub featured in the middle of the room ate up about a third of the real estate. Oh well for people like me who like showers and take bath perhaps once a year, this was a useless waste of space. Anyway the room was rather duller and more worn out than the rest of the hotel with a couch that had suspicious stains that they could never clean despite my complaints.
The lounge was fine and quiet. The breakfast acceptable with some flaws though: one day there was no orange or grapefruit juice; the pomelos or the sort of lychees they have were gone early from the table and never replenished and I always missed the happy hour where they served free drinks: must have been my schedule but I didn't find that theirs was practical. The service was ok, nothing worth mentioning and the people were generally kind.
The bathroom was OK with excellent water pressure. You are best getting your own shampoo and conditionner at the nearby shops cause the ones they provide is so incredibly cheap.
The hotel itself seems to be very busy and I couldn't help being bothered by the incessant succession of noisy weddings taking place but the 3 restaurants are deserted: they look so unappealing in comparison with what is on offer in the city. I assume most people did like me and went to eat in the shopping mall where there are plenty of decent restaurants with all sort of cuisines. The shopping mall is below par compare to the newest in town but it was fine and welcome in this part of town and it had this great highend supermarket with superb products.
Enough... I think you got the picture by now.
They should really do something about the 5 stars rating: there is too much discrepancy between the bottom and the top of the line 5 stars hotels. This one certainly doesn't deserve its status but nevertheless I am sure that it checks all the boxes to make it a 5 stars.

Room Tip: Avoid overlooking the motorway.

we stayed there last year as a 2 day stopover before pattaya..firstly the hotel itself is a good standard 4 star hotel ...its as good as the other 4 star hotel that we had previously stayed in Bkk and around thailand..clean, service was good, the food was good.... but what we like the most is its location...if u r after the grand nite life well its not for u..but for thoes who love the shoping well you r in the rite place the hotel is connected to the great central mall ( we were there before its renovation i heard it is even better now!) its an huge upscale mall which has everthing that u want..the food, the cloths..outside the central mall is another huge discount shopping mall called the union mall..what a find.we found union mall to be one of the best malls in bbk in terms of quality and price
( female clothing and accesories in particular)..its sort of a mixture between Indra square in pratunam and the ever popular Mbk mall) union mall seemed to be popular with the young thai folks and 95% of the shoppers there were locals ( i think thats why i found the price and quality to be better than those in pratunam and siam square area) there was also a nite market outside when we were there...we really enjoyed shopping there.... of cos dont forget the legendary Chatujuk market its 5 min taxi ride (60 baht) or u can just get into the MRT outside the Central mall ( (which is around 5 min walk from the hotel ) its only one station away!! all in all we found the shopping there as good as the one in Pratunam and siam square if not better!! we will return to this hotel whenever we r in BKK
God bless

Room Tip: best to stay during the weekend for the chajujuk market up the road

We have stayed in this Sofitel perviously and have always found to be one of the better hotels in Bangkok, even though the location is not really in the centre of Bangkok but it is easy enough to find connections to anywhere in the city centre by the Bangkok Underground (MRT). The hotel has recently had a full refurbishment and the suite and the public areas of the hotel are really smart and there are various good restaurants on the site. There is also a direct access to the Central Department Store where absolutely everything including food is available. So we would recommend this Sofitel to anyone who come to Bangkok.

Room Tip: Always ask for the high floor on the PTT Head Office Building side for a really good view of Bangkok...

We stayed here, as my father had booked this hotel for his stay, and we were unable to stay at our normal residence that we use when we travel to Bangkok due to the floods.

The hotel has just completed a full refurb.. (End of 2011)

The rooms were very comfortable, and the shower was great.. Internet wasn't included in our package, however as the local sims were so cheap and I needed a data package I just purchased a DTAC Sim, and used my iphone to Tether all my computers, phones, ipad, etc, etc.

The breakfast buffet was great, there was soo much to choose from, I used it to fill up so I could have a light lunch.

My father ate in the Italian and said it was very nice, and we all had dinner up on the Roof top bar which was excellent (although if you are drinking wine, expect the bill to be as much as London / Sydney / New York ... etc etc.)

I used the gym a couple of times, some of the machines weren't place well enough to receive aircon, which was a little disappointing. However all the equipment was new or in good shape.

The hotel is next to a shopping centre and about 5 minutes taxi ride from the famous JJ Market and the MRT / BTS (MO CHIT)

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, we wanted to do a simple trip up the River. The staff at the hotel, told us there was a local ferry that left from a pier about 10 minutes from the hotel. it cost us 15bhat per person to sit on the boat and view the sites for a good 90 minutes.

I wouldn't have chosen this hotel if my father wasn't staying there, however I will be returning. The price per night puts most other 5* hotels to shame..

Room Tip: Didn't even think about this option, we just had the standard room with a King and it was great.
