Sofitel So Bangkok

During our recent trip to Bangkok, we decided to stay in Sofitel So Bangkok. It is located adjacent to Lumpini Park, close to Pratunam, business and entertainment districts.

With meter taxi always on standby, the hotel also enjoys an easy access to Lumpini Subway and Saladaeng Skytrain station.

The outdoor infinity pool overlooking Bangkok’s skyline is definitely a triumph, extending over 33 metres on the 10th floor, the water seemingly flows over the negative edge into the park and skyline beyond, giving the impression of swimming in mid-air.
