As the #1 destination in the world, Bangkok boasts a lot of luxury hotels and trendy places to stay, sip and enjoy dinner. Here’s what makes Sofitel So Bangkok so unique (but not perfect)
its design was inspired by Christian Lacroix
From the gorgeous Club Signature when you check-in with a private assistant to the wonderful rooms and suites the Sofitel So Bangkok features, you’re gonna love the design of the whole place. Christian Lacroix was joined by Thai designers who gave their special signature to different rooms where water, wood, metal and earth pay a tribute to the main elements.
in-room paradise and much more
If you only book the basic rooms, you won’t enjoy one of the four elements and the great benefits of Club Signature (free drinks, food, etc.). But you will get free access to WiFi and, as always, a MyBed that will make you want to kill someone to get one for your own place back home. Suites and premium rooms feature an Apple Mac Mini.
So really, if you want to experience Sofitel SO Bangkok, get a room above the SO CLUB category: it’s worth the extra bucks.
Here’s an overview of the different elements you can choose from:
Water: sophistication and calm
Earth: Wonder and Nature
Metal: Purity & Serenity
Wood: your urban nest in a chaotic city
Bars & restaurants at the Sofitel So Bangkok
Picture it as the “Upper East Side” equivalent of Bangkok. It’s hype, very hype, but the view is breathtaking and cocktails are more than decent.
THOUGH… we don’t know how the food is these days, but it was (waaaay) too pricey for the quality when we came. We heard they have a new Chef.
Hi-So: the rooftop bar : don’t forget to suit up (a little)
Red Oven : basic but decent food in a very nice room. You can have breakfast here too.
The Chocolab: a shop and café for every chocolate-addict
8 reasons to book a Club Room (or Suite)

- 24/7 access to Club Signature (free drinks, private breakfast, tea time, happy hours….)

Too bad though:
Service was perfect in the Club lounge, but less convincing at other times… but it was a few weeks after the opening, so…
Verdict Sex & the City
Sofitel So Bangkok is a great lifestyle hotel (and you don’t get to experience this brand so often), even though we prefer the Sofitel Sukhumvit, which is more traditional but very convincing in terms of service !
