I had to visit Bangkok for business and stayed at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit for three nights. The location of the hotel is superb, right next to the BTS Asoke station with footbridge connection from lobby level. For those who happen to stay here and wish to use the BTS, don’t make my mistake of leaving via ground level exit to climb the stairs at the BTS station in the hot and humid Bangkok weather, as the hotel has direct footbridge connection to the station at the lobby level. The BTS line runs along Sukhumvit Road and the famous Central World and Siam Paragon malls are a mere couple stations to the northwest.
Almost right opposite the hotel is the Terminal 21 mall, a mall that seem to target the locals which is very busy and has good variety – including two floors of tiny local shops and major brand shops on the higher floors.
The Rossini’s and basil are superb, with good service and good food. Rossini’s in particularly was very busy, so my advice is to call to book a table from your room to ensure you’ll get a table.
The room itself is clean, tidy and spacious with a comfortable bed and big table. I’ll be glad to stay here on future visits.
