The Sukhothai Bangkok
Ranked #35 of 894 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 February 2012

Stayed at the Sukhothai for 4 days with my wife having a nice weekend break. Now having stayed at many good hotels you do expect a certain level of service and what can make the difference is the staff and with the Sukhothai staff they have made the difference.
From the moment that we were picked up at the airport and arrived at reception we were made to feel like the staff really wanted to make sure that you had a great vacation.
The hotel itself has an amazing set up being in the center of town but has set itself up so that it is off the main busy street and surrounded by well kept gardens. The rooms are well maintained to a very high standard and very comfortable.
We made use of a lot of the facilities in the hotel, beginning with the gym, whilst it is smaller than some of the other hotels that I have been to and is a bit crowed with equipment leaving very little free space what makes it great is the gym staff, every hotel I have stayed at the gym staff seem to have the best job in the world, just give out a towel, a bottle of water and then ignore you. Instead the Sukhothai hotel gym staff made sure that everyone using the gym was assisted if needed.
Breakfast is great with good food for all tastes, great attentive staff and unlike the chaos of some hotels during breakfast service it’s made to feel relaxed and a great way to start the day.
A few other notes being used the Spa and the Thai restaurant, again fantastic service.
My only complaint is the entrance lobby which is open by the swimming pool, smoking should be banned its technically indoors and to get to the gym you need to go through the small café by the pool which has outdoor seating which allows smoking, really I don’t need second hand smoke just before going to the gym.

We were traveling with two young children, and the general sense I got was that we were far less welcome than the large group of Morgan Stanley (or was it JP Morgan) bankers there for a conference. In general, would not recommend if you are with young kids and want friendly, helpful service. The general atmosphere was surprisingly cold.

The property itself is of course very beautiful, and peaceful.

While we aim to delight every guest, we acknowledge that your recent stay did not meet your expectations.

We pride ourselves on having a wonderful blend of business and leisure guests and are disappointed that your family did not feel welcome. It is unfortunate that we were not made aware of your concerns during your stay as we would most certainly have made every effort to enhance your stay.

We hope that we will be able to welcome you back someday so that we can restore your confidence in The Sukhothai.

If you are accustomed to the chiseled stonework of a Balinese 5 star restort's bathroom, you ought to manage your expectations.

The Sukhothai is very, very good. The pool is an honest dark green rather than the usual impossibly iridescent blue. There is a lavazza coffee pod machine in your room. That's right. The Thais have worked out that westerners, and perhaps more importantly their wives are different beings pre and post coffee.

Remember to hide your unused pods in the afternoons so that housekeeping reloads your quota of six pods. This results in at least 2 double shot coffees for you and your significant other the following morning.

The location is good. If you were like me and knew nothing of the layout of Bangkok and would be none the wiser having read a 50 word explanation from an enthusiastic reviewer, just trust me, the location is good.

Oh... The Bose iPod dock in the room. Outstanding.

The Sukhothai Hotel has always been my favorite hotel sanctuary in Bangkok throughout the past two decades. I've stayed at many different hotels in Bangkok over the years (and in different locations due to business/conferences/client preference/visiting family preferences, etc.) but given the choice, I will always choose the Sukhothai as it's truly a hidden sanctuary in the middle of the city (although the location is not in the hub of shopping/entertainment, it's only a quick/cheap taxi ride away; and precisely because the hotel is located far off the street, and not surrounded by construction, it's stunningly quiet). On this most recent trip to Bangkok, I first had to stay a few days in a noisy city hotel (chosen by a client who wanted to be near our meetings) which was a claustrophobic and not particularly pleasant experience. As a reward to myself, I booked myself into the Sukhothai for my final two days in Bangkok; as always, it was like walking into blissful, stress-free and beautifully under-stated elegance. It is by far one of the most beautifully designed city hotels in Bangkok. The hotel is named after the Sukhothai Dynasty, which is known as a period when the arts flourished, and the design/architecture throughout the hotel reflects this--it's both aesthetic and restful to the eye and mind. At the same time, one is utterly pampered with modern amenities and expected comfort of a 5-star hotel (which at the Sukhothai always feels like a resort in a city to me). The pool is heavenly (and quiet), with tented areas, and lush tropical surroundings (including body pillows to lie close to the pool edge; too easy to lie by the pools for hours in a meditative stupor). Excellent small gym that I used both days at the hotel (if for no other reason then to make caloric room for the fabulous Thai food (in such a beautiful atmosphere) at the hotel restaurant Celadon and the amazing breakfast spread at the Colannade. I had no time to eat at La Scala this trip, but highly recommend it for their superb Italian cuisine. I've always loved the rooms at the Sukhothai...luxurious, tasteful and art-oriented and I always book a room with a sun terrace to sit outside amid the view of lotus ponds. Finally, I also enjoy the hotel as it tends to cater to business people and couples and therefore there are few children (hence, the wonderfully quiet atmosphere in the hotel). All in all, just bliss.

Room Tip: Rooms around the ponds w/balconies are my favorite (and of course, the suites....).

Good location, near the river and just a quick taxi ride away from some of the hot spots in the city. Chic and modern, nice comfy rooms where we had a "pillow menu" (I got the lavender pillow - very nice). We chose the breakfast package and were blown away by the huge, delicious breakfast spread! Definitely worth the money because it kept us going for hours! The one complaint is that the first night we stayed they had a wedding on the grounds that played music and kept us up late into the night. We loved the pool but didn't eat at any of the restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the courtyard!
