Sukhumvit Soi 11 has long been a magnet for tourists, expats and locals attracted by the numerous restaurants, bars and clubs that fill the street with life. Few Bangkok neighbourhoods can compete with Soi 11’s renowned reputation as the capital’s popular dining and nightlife destination.
Its central location in downtown Bangkok, also contributes to the attractiveness of the street, with the BTS Skytrain Nana Station, the MRT Subway Asoke Station, and the Airport Link Makkasan Station all within walking distance. The easy access to the expressway also puts both airports within 40 minutes reach.
Rooted to its community, Mercure Bangkok Sukhumvit 11 offers a choice of 232 spacious and comfortable rooms and suites with authentic Thai-style décor and furnishings. Its signature Thai silk décor is seen throughout the property from the lobby, guest rooms to the public areas.
