About U Sathorn Bangkok
U Sathorn Bangkok is located in a peaceful part of the capital where natural beauty sits alongside the hustle and bustle of this busy Bangkok district. Luxuriously appointed U Sathorn consists of 86 rooms featuring Superior, Superior Garden, Deluxe Garden and Suite accommodation in three low rise wings set in a courtyard style surrounded by restful green areas with a swimming pool as the centrepiece. The overall design of this urban resort was conceived in a French Colonial style with a contemporary twist inspired by Sri Lankan Geoffrey Bawa. The design breaks down the barriers between the inside and outside and between interior design and landscaped architecture which reduces the buildings to a series of delightfully conceived spaces separated by natural features.
U’s unique concept of service includes 24-hour room which will allow guests to enjoy their room for a full 24 hours from arrival as well as breakfast whenever/wherever during their stay, international and local calls at cost, pre-selected amenities such as pillows, teas and soap which guests can select from our online U Choose programme and much more.
