My wife and I loved the hotel. The location is in a bit of a tourist stretch, but it was easy to get out and about and discover more local settings in Bangkok. The room and hotel were great, especially for the price! We'd gladly stay there again.
I found the Sofitel a very good base for sight-seeing in Bangkok. The easiest way to get round Bangkok is via the river (it's also very cheap - I was charged 13 Baht (26p) to get to the Grand Palace) and it's easy to walk to the skytrain (Chang
Nonsi) from the Sofitel. The ferry station is Saphan Taksin.
I grew to love the Sofitel , the minute you walk in, the air is cool and fragrant. The rooms are what you would expect of a 5 star hotel - comfortable and very clean.
I had enjoyable stay when this hotel was Sofitel Silom so we thought we will give it another chance. Since it became Pullman, the design changed and we felt like we were staying in a hospital. Everything is white. The problem with white is that is
shows every dirt (under the table glass, toilet seat etc.
The location is very good and breakfast was amazing! If I found great deal for this hotel, I would stay here again but it would not be my first choice as it is just too white for our liking.
THE BREAKFAST WAS AN UNEXPECTED DELIGHT...AFTER THE LONG FLIGHT THE RECEPTIONIST TRIED TO CONVINCE US TO PREPAY FOR THE BREAKFAST AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WE DO SO. I DID NOT BUT WENT BY IN THE MORNING ANYWAY TO CHECK IT OUT...FANTASTIC FOOD A
