Best Views from Hotels on Bangkok's Sathorn Road

While neighboring Silom tends to get a bit more press, Sathorn Road is home to some of Bangkok's most dazzling hotels. There's a lot of cutting edge elegance here, with urban chic architecture on display at the cool Sofitel So and down the road at the W Bangkok, or at the new U Sathorn. The Sukhothai and Banyan Tree are here on Sathorn as well, both with longstanding excellent track records in elegance, and the Banyan Tree is home to the sky high Moon Bar, which has possibly the best views in the city up on the 68th floor. Further tucked away, the Metropolitan is one of Bangkok's premiere lodgings, and has the added benefit of being home to Nahm, Chef David Thompson's restaurant that has been listed as one of the top 50 in the world! If one is staying in town for awhile, Sathorn is also a good choice for setting up shop, as there are several executive residences here like the Marriott's Sathorn Vista, where one can have serviced apartments complete with kitchens and all the amenities of home with 5 star hotel facilities and service as well. Whatever you choose, this handy list can help you chart your course along Sathorn Road.
