Dare to be So Different with So Sofitel Bangkok. There is no better place to stand out.
So Sofitel Bangkok is a trendy, ultra modern and luxurious high rise hotel. Totally hip and cool, deliberately quirky, with design influence from Christian LaCroix. Well located in on the corner of Sathorn and Rama 1V roads, close to the junction with Silom Road. The airport is about 50 minutes drive.
So Sofitel Bangkok has 237 rooms and suites. All are totally contemporary and beautifully furnished. You have four design factors – Water, Earth, Wood and Metal, with several floors dedicated to each aspect. There is even a smoking floor in each aspect, something unique in this day & age, but then this is a French hotel group!
| Water rooms are sleek and sophisticated, with organic curves, onyx glowing against cool dark marble.
| Earth rooms are stylish, mythical and rather moody, with primeval wall paintings. Highly individual.
| Wood rooms are calm and affectionate, with old Siam murals.
| Metal rooms are pure and elegant, clean cut, “less is more” classic simplicity.
In each theme you have a choice of room types. So Cosy are a rather pleasant 38 sqm at least. So Comfy rooms are are larger and have attractive park views. So Club rooms have club lounge access, of course. Then you have a selection of Studio Suites, So Spa Suites, So Lofty and So VIP duplex loft suites with two bedrooms.
Roof top bar with regular DJ
Infinity style swimming pool, which hosts an Ibiza style party every month (see note below)
Several restaurants including lively Market Place with cuisines from around the region and a fine dining European option
Plus many more dining options in the immediate area
You need something special to stand out in Bangkok. So Sofitel Bangkok achieves that rather easily with its blend of vivid colours, minimalist European design combined with an Oriental flavour. Plus a great location, overlooking Lumpini Park on one side and busy Sathorn Road on the other.
The shops of Silom Road are just 10 minutes walk, or you can take a short train ride (3 stops) to the main shopping district of Sukhumvidt or Siam where you will find several of the largest shopping malls in Asia. In the other direction the famous Chao Phyra River is a short drive or 2 stop train ride away, a very different view of Bangkok.
So Sofitel is not for everybody, quite intentionally. It will appeal to artists, hipsters of all ages (DK was very comfortable here!) and fashionistas, or just those looking for something very different. There are so many areas where you stop and think, “now that should not work together”, but it does!
We have indicated the hotel as boutique – yes it does have 237 rooms and suites, but appears much smaller. It is most certainly highly individual, with amazing attention to detail.
The “Ibiza” style pool party (our words, not the hotel’s) is usually last Saturday of every month, and should be enjoyed, or missed, depending on how hedonistic your mood du jour.
