With NIST International School at its far end bordering the San Saeb canal, Sukhumvit Soi 15 is a long ol’ soi.
We like to think of it as ‘the hotel soi’, thanks to the many accommodation options that line its streets. It also joins up to Sois 13 and 19 via its subsois without your taxi driver having to brave any hellish Sukhumvit traffic.
Let’s have a look at what’s down there…
One of the newer hotels to grace Sukhumvit in the past year or so, the Mövenpick is another international chain that provides luxury accommodation and facilities to its discerning guests.
As well as a 24-hour tuk tuk shuttle service, the hotel boasts a rainforest rooftop bar, rooftop pool, and a couple of onsite restaurants. There are almost 300 rooms and suites in total, all decked out with a walk-in rain shower.

While their website and Facebook pages are all in Thai script, there looks to be a weekly international service lead by English speakers.
Describing themselves as a “fabulous haute couture experience in the heart of Sukhumvit”, Dream is a popular hotel with many tourists thanks to its convenient location and facilities.
They offer rooms and suites, a tuk tuk shuttle, concierge, spa, a rooftop pool, fitness centre, free WiFi and business centre. It’s also pet friendly!
Next door to the Four Points by Sheraton hotel is the Drunken Leprechaun pub — a popular expat watering hole towards the top of Soi 15. As well as a wide variety of drinks, they also have a large food menu and table service.
Occasionally, you’ll see dwarves dressed as leprechauns on duty.
Four Points By Sheraton
Another international hotel chain found on Sukhumvit Soi 15 is this branch of the Sheraton. Fantastically located near the top of the soi, it’s a very popular, family-friendly hotel. Both rooms and suites are available.
They also have a swimming pool, gym, 24-hour business centre, free tuk tuk shuttle and are a category 3 SPG member. As well as an onsite restaurant and the neighbouring Drunken Leprechaun, they also have the rooftop AmBar, which regularly hosts events and pool parties.
Positioned at the top of Soi 15 is American favourite, Hooters, where the chicken wings are crispy and the waitresses, er, busty.
There’s not really much to say here. It’s a Hooters.
