Where to Stay in Sathorn
Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Sathorn
Broken down into two parallel roads (North Sathorn and South Sathorn), Sathorn is dotted with modern high-rises, embassies, gleaming corporate head offices and some of Bangkok's trendiest hotels like the Metropolitan, the Sukhothai and Banyan Tree. The area also boasts many up-market serviced apartments and a variety of fine restaurants serving up excellent local and international cuisine.
Sathorn Street runs all the way to the riverside and is accessible via the BTS Skytrain at Chong Nonsi, Surasak and Saphan Taksin. Often considered a 'watered down' version of Silom, Sathorn is ideal for those seeking peace and privacy away from the downtown commotion.

There is'nt a corner of W Hotel that does not make a good impression with a light-hearted and playful design that is exciting and fabulously hip. The reception is decked out in a large mural created from thousands of crystals, each painstakingly positioned by hand, and as you enter the lift, there is a wall of Tuk Tuk lights creating a disco vibe. With a fantastic location in the business district of Bangkok, W Hotel is only minutes walk from the BTS at Chong Nonsi, and only a short taxi ride from Siloms famous nightlife.
The 407 rooms are equally cool, with bright bursts of colour, plenty of high-tech equipment and funky amenities. In a nod to Thailands favourite sport there is a hint of Muay Thai in the soft furnishings, inluding cushions created from the famous silk shorts emblazoned with a golden W. The room really is all about glitz, glamour, and most importantly, having fun. The 40 inch television offers a large selection of movies, or you can plug in your iPod and connect to your own collection. A wireless tablet is used to control not only the temperature and mood lighting of the room, but also send a quick email to room service. If you are feeling hungry, the Munchie Box is a Willy Wonka inspired treat, and the bathroom is stocked with Bliss products for some in-suite pampering.
