5 reasons to check-in at Sofitel Bangkok

There is no shortage of five-star internationally branded hotels in Bangkok, but how do you know if you’re checking into the right one?

Here’s the top 5 reasons to staying at the Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit

1. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

It’s probably the main consideration taken into account by travellers, after all, it can certainly make or break a holiday or business trip if you’re in the wrong part of town. Centrally located in the heart of Bangkok’s business and shopping district, Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit is a perfect match for both business and leisure travellers. The hotel is steps away from the BTS Skytrain, providing quick and convenient access to many Bangkok attractions and guests can also easily stroll to many shopping malls (including Terminal 21 and Siam Paragon), a colourful street market, vibrant nightlife, a plethora of Thai and international restaurants and the Erawan Shrine, an important place of worship.

2. ROOMS

Perhaps second on the check list when choosing a hotel is the size and comfort of where they’ll be spending their down time. The Sofitel rooms feature a unique blend of French sophistication and contemporary Thai design accents and draw on a palette of pastel tones and rich timbers.

The relaxed personal space also includes an ergonomic workstation and a generous marble bathroom. Sofitel’s blissful MyBed and a choice of comforts (such as a personal pillow menu) ensure guests a restful night’s sleep. Expansive windows offer dramatic city views of Bangkok and its landmarks. Guests who stay in the hotel’s Imperial Suite can experience a truly opulent living space surrounded by artworks and enjoy meals arranged by a personal butler in their own dining room.

3. DINING

While Bangkok’s culinary scene is quickly growing as one of the most sophisticated in Asia, the Sofitel’s own various eateries have earned its own recognition as being some of the city’s finest. The hotel’s 32nd floor (the hotel’s top floor) bar/lounge/restaurant, L’Appart, showcases some of the best French-inspired food in Bangkok. Here, Jerome Deconinck — who spent years working alongside Michelin star chefs — serves up imaginative gourmet dishes ranging from classic to contemporary.

Other venues include Le Macaron, a Parisian-style sidewalk cafe/bakery; and Voila!, an all-day dining venue on the hotel’s mezzanine level that’s also site of perhaps the grandest cheese room in the entire city.

4. CLUB LOUNGE

It’s an added bonus, mainly derived from either being a loyal customer or choosing to pay a bit more for your room. A good Club Lounge should be a place to get away from it all, host intimate business meetings, or simply somewhere else to relax aside from the hotel’s public venues. Located on the 31st floor, the chic Club Millésime lounge provides discerning guests with spacious lounge areas where they can relax in style and savour exquisite food and wine. Club Millésime benefits include a gourmet breakfast, evening cocktails and a selection of French and New World wines. Modern business facilities and attentive staff also make it a convenient venue to work or hold a meeting. Club Millésime has spectacular views of Sukhumvit Road and downtown Bangkok.
