Water, wood and soil come from the oasis of Lumpini Park, which the hotel sits just adjacent to, while metal reflects the surrounding high rise business district on the other side. And fire, which is the theme in the restaurant and bar design, showcases the fiery sun that hovers over the city. Unique touches can be found throughout, such as the water element suite, characterized by a bathtub that has a panoramic view of Bangkok, or the fiery red French Molteni oven catching everyone’s eye in the Red Oven restaurant.

The Sofitel So is minutes from the MRT subway Lumpini Station, giving easy access to all the shopping, dining and nightlife districts of central Bangkok.
