A review of the Standard High Floor Room at the Holiday Inn Bangkok Sukhumvit, for anyone who is looking for an accommodation right in the heart of Bangkok. We hope that this post should be of assistance.
What We Liked
- Near the Asoke and Phrom Phong BTS station
- Availability of a swimming pool and fitness center
- Delicious breakfast
- Good room soundproofing
- Availability of a working desk
- Solid-walled bathroom, feels more personal than a glass wall
- Bed is perfectly soft, does not collapse nor is it too hard
- Availability of several pillows
- Provides a good view of the city (we stayed on the 27th Floor)
What We Didn’t Like
- The A/C’s temperature was constantly fluctuating
- Passing motorcycles could be heard from rooms facing the main road
- Pillows were considerably flat, and would not be suitable for anyone who likes high pillows

The King Bed Standard City View Room (High Floor)
The room size is 30 sq.m. in size and decorated in brown tones, imparting a feeling of calmness, firmness, and maturity.
Very clean. No traces of any dust.
Even though facing the main road, the room was considerably quiet, the bed was soft and comfortable, pillows were of the soft and flat type and may not be liked by guests who prefer high pillows.
Solid-walled bathroom, strong water current, and water heater was easy to use without the need to wait long for the water to heat up.
Wide spacious table and equipped with multiple power sockets. Working in a notebook is convenient. However, the chair was placed under the A/C’s outlet.
Fast and strong signal. Doesn’t pose any issue for general use, but may not be suitable for playing online games.
