Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, A Luxury Collection Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Back on the travelling trail, arriving in Bangkok at rush hour is certainly a full on introduction! You hear many a bad story about Bangkok but like all big cities if you get stuck in a bit you tend to find the best of it - we really loved it. However we did cheat a little as we spent 3 nights in the Sheraton - it was nice to close the door on the …
Ah yes - Bangkok. Most famous for an ABBA song... surprisingly accurate.
Bangkok is one of my favorite cities. Honestly, I'm not sure why - it's crowded, smelly, congested, and generally caters to the worst of humanity (none of which is my style). Perhaps it's the ubiquitous Thai massages (really, really good), or perhaps it's the good …
Theallansons stayed here on Jun 23, 2010 during their trip titled: Around the World in 70 Days.
For me... Bangkok is a heaven for shopping... Love everything there.... My favorite shopping place:
- Catucak weekeend market: you can find just about everything. But what we shopped usually military items from uniform to gask mask... its relatively cheap compare to anything we found in Jakarta. Its my favorite place to buy ceramic as well …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, A Luxury Collection Hotel Bangkok
Great location. Across the road from the new subway station and skytrain take the high pressure traffic out of the equation for easy trips to Chatuchauk, Lad Prao, Chao Prya & Sala Daeng areas. Easy trip to the airport as well.
I have stayed here several times, and recently only 2 weeks ago. This hotel is excellent. The service is consistently second to none, the rooms modern and spacious and the facilities, including gym,restaurants,etc as good as any in Bangkok. Combined with a great location what more could one want? I woudn't stay anywhere else . A truly 5 star hotel.
Where else will you find a dowtown 5 star for hotel for 120.00 a night? I do realize Thailand is known for great deals, but this was insane. A hotel like this in New York ( which does not exsist, at least not in the quality of serice) would probably cost around 5 or 6 hundred a night. From the moment you walk you in the service is great. Check in was easy, fast and polite. The rooms were large, elegant ,with superb bathrooms, and incredible views (some rooms). Room service was extenstive, fast and inexpensive. The spa was also great.. with a large number of services to choose from, many at prices for less then a cab ride in the states. I have heard some people complain about the size of the pool area. It is quite small for the number of rooms, luckily I was there when the hotel was not full. However, it is gorgeous.. a tropical oasis matched by few resorts I have seen... and never in the middle of a major city! And the poolside service is outstanding. ..although somewhat more pricey then other aspects of the hotel. I didnt get to eat or drink and any of the restaurants or bars in the hotel, although they looked very nice and modern. I highly rec this hotel for anyone wishing to stay in a centralized bangkok hotel near the action.
I visited the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit in December 2004 and was pleased overall with my experience there. SERVICE was excellent with friendly and willing staff. ROOM was very clean with good facilities and a massive bathroom. Bed was very comfortable and large too. AMENITIES on offer were all very good (restaurants, bars, tour facilities, transport). OUTDOOR SPACE was the only concern - in Bangkok you really do need some outdoor space in which to relax and in which you can take a dip in a pool but in the Sheraton Grande the nicely-landscaped open area is not big enough and does not have nearly enough loungers for the number of rooms. Be prepared therefore to sit on the ground very close to other guests or find somewhere else to cool-down! LOCATION whilst not on the river I really liked staying in Sukhumvit due to the large number of excellent local restaurants, the proximity to the Skytrain (Asok station) and large number of buses and taxis that ply Sukhumvit towards central Bangkok.
A great example of a 5 star property. Staff was excellent. Wished all Luxury Properties were this level!
Have been spending our time here during X'mas. Location wise, it's really excellent, just a step to get on the Asok BTS, which is connected directly to Sukhumvit station of Mass Rapid Transit, which makes almost every places connected, and saving a lot of time in transitting for BTS at the Siam station or getting stuck on a taxi running on the Sukhumvit.
We stayed in the Grande Sheraton Sukhumvit in October 2004 for 4 nights as part of a five week honeymoon. Out of all the 4 - 5 star hotels we stayed in on our trip, this one was the best.
One of the best options in BKK
I have frequently travelled to Thailand and have always chosen this hotel since I discovered it. Staff is corteous, friendly and efficient. The hotel has large, comfortable rooms in pristine conditions. Its location is one of the most convenient you can find in the business district. The buffet breakfast and food in general are excellent. Well-deserved 5-star rating and one of the best Sheraton I have ever stayed in.
Great hotel, wonderful service, large rooms
Spent 9 days at this hotel. The service was great, the rooms are huge and the location can't be beat. Just steps away from the subway and the sky train, near shopping and restaurants. Room service was quick and the food was very well prepared. The restaurants (Basil and Rossini's) were also excellent. Try the soft shell crab and the breakfast buffet!
I've stayed in this hotel several times, and the latest one was in Dec 2003. It's location is just perfect right at the BTS Asok Station, and at the exit of the Expressway to the Airport. Decoration is ambient and rooms are large with own walk-in closet. Bathrooms are large with bathtub and separate shower cubicle.
