The Sukhothai Bangkok
Ranked #30 of 887 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2006

we stayed at this hotel on several occasions, and i must say that it's a truly wonderful experience. i've never stayed in any other hotel in bkk, but my boyfriend has, and he says there's nothing better than sukhothai.
the staff is great, everything is express, from check-in to room service, rooms are beautiful and huge (we always stay in a suite, though, so i don't know how standard rooms look like), tha spa is excellent, and Celadon is my favourite restaurant in the world (we found out that it has been voted the best thai restaurant in thailand for years!).
the hotel is modern and minimalistic, with a thai touch, so if you like stuffy, you won't like it.
the man who designed the hotel is Ed Tuttle, who designed most of the Aman hotels, so you can pretty much get the Aman feel as the Sukhothai is an oasis in the middle of hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

here's the tip: if you're staying for at least 2 nights, always book a package (we always take the executive), as they upgrade you to a suite, complementary limousine service from and to the airport, and all of that for the almost the same price as the standard room.

one more tip: everywhere you go, it's better to take the hotel's limousine (which are bmw7 or mercedes) as they are pretty cheap (i think it's 700bt per hour) and much more luxurious and bigger than city taxis, + the drivers can be pretty good guides and they're always at your disposal

I won't add much to what has already been written, so I'll be brief.

Start with the pluses:
-Stayed in a basic room and there were a few things in need of attention, but overall the room is nice and comfortable. The B&O TV is a nice touch, the dark tiled bathroom is very cool.
-Staff is attentive and very nice, but they are like that everywhere in Bangkok that I've ever been, its Thai hospitality and should be expected.
-Pool and spa are both very nice, service is first class.
-Celadon is outstanding, best Thai food I have had in Bangkok, and a close second is Baan Khanitha which is about a 10 minute walk down Sathorn Road outside the hotel.
-10 minutes in the other direction is a big night market which is worth seeing.

Minuses:
-Very noisy rooms! I couldn't believe how easily noise traveled in from the outside. I think if you are in suites you are in good shape as these are in a carpeted hallway while the regular rooms are basically open to the outside world (albeit behind some lattice work) and outside concrete hallways. For instance:
-There was some major construction going on outside our side of the hotel (the bldg immediately behind the main lobby) starting at 7 am on both Saturday and Sunday morning. Talking about jackhammers and the like, no way to sleep through this!
-I also heard a guy talking on his mobile in the hallway about 3 or 4 a.m. and it freaked me out, it sounded like he was sitting at the end of the bed.

I wouldn't stay there again unless in a suite.

Although I shouldn't start a review with a comparison I got to on this occasion.

I love the Peninsula, the top personal attention, the product etc, however having now stayed at the Sukhothai I am sold - I love the Sukhothai. It more personal, more personal as staff seems to have personalities and are not just smiling robots.

The Sukhothai rocks.

The Sukhothai is a beautiful, soothing oasis in the middle of Bangkok. Public areas are large, open and luxurious with beautiful ponds, fountains and sculptures. It is quiet and peaceful and the staff/service are wonderful. Rooms are beautifully decorated with nice silks and teak wood panels. Bathrooms are large. Upon mention of our honeymoon we were offered tea and a honeymoon welcome cake.

However, the service is not as smooth and seamless as the Peninsula. Moreover, the hotel does not offer the imposing views or the luxurious decor of the Peninsula.

If you're looking for an understated yet elegant place, then the Sukhothai is the hotel for you.
