Whew! Ok, what a whirl-wind the last like 96 hours have been so hold on as I go through this entry. As crazy as it sounds in text, just multiply by 100 to get the real-life effect. So, just to begin, we fly 23 hours to get here b/c we flew west, stopped in LAX for three hours, at which point they failed to connect our luggage, and landed in Bangkok …
What a change. New experiences for both us. New culture, new country, WOW. We booked our escape from SA the day after we arrived. We took a package with flight and 4 nights in Bangkok. We decided to do 2 nights at the beginning and 2 nights at the end. Good choice as it turns out. Elephants in the street at night. The markets. The shopping. Cannot …

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok
Just spent 3 nights at this hotel because they are currently giving away rooms at $80/night. Beware of the small print: there is a 7% government tax and 10% service charge that is added to the rate.
We stayed for 3 nights in a Silver room. This was the most basic category but the room was clean, comfortable and spacious.
Stayed 3 nights at this hotel in early August 2006. Made our reservation through Smartstay website which is cheaper than the Accor website and includes breakfast. We stayed at this hotel because of the reputation of the Sofitel brand as a 5 star hotel.
Well, if this was not considered a five star hotel I would not complain about our stay but when comparing the Grand Sukumvit to the other 5 star choices in Bangkok, I feel it will be a disapointment to most travelers.
I had read various scathing reviews about this hotel and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised by it. Stayed 3 nights in a silver room which was comfortable, spacious and modern. Room was clean, no complaints.
Hotel was tucked away in a soi (lane) about 3 minutes walk from the main road and the BTS station. The alley leading to the main access road is usually busy, but we had no problems traversing it.
The only problem was that there are only 2 lifts functioning in the hotel at any one time, so it can be quite a hassle to get about during busy periods.
On the whole, though, service was efficient and friendly and we would definitely go back again.
We ended up in this hotel after we saw great pix on the Sofitel web site and soon found out we had been fooled.
This is probably the newest hotel in Bangkok and is located near Nana Skytrain, making it a good location for tourists as well as business travellers. We were recommended this area by people who had lived in Bangkok.
We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel in a silver room which I presume is a standard. The light fittings are all modern and more than adequate. Bathroom fittings are high quality with excellent shower/wet room and bath. There is plenty of wardrobe space but no bathrobe provided, so bring your own. Despite being officially opened for a month, the hotel is not completed yet with building work going on in certain areas, although there is no obvious noise in the rooms or reception areas. The small swimming pool is relaxing but the suana is not finished. Fitness room is very good. Internet is provided free of charge in the business centre. Ask at receptiion and they will log in with password.
