We (I and my son, 10) stayed here 4 days in July. Actually, he was that one who wanted to stay here. He had studied the history of this hotel and knows “everything” about it. Mostly he wanted to come here because of the lights on hotel’s river boats and the old style keys (with key drops). Good start Outside... More

My wife and I are in the midst of what has become an annual two week stay celebrating our anniversary (44 years). The Hotel while not the newest and glitziest property in Bangkok, still is unique in the level of service rendered by ALL of its staff, particularly Mayuree, Disachai, and Nuansri in our case.

The hotel has everything. The main rooms are on one side of the river and there is a courtesy boat which takes you across the river (another experience in itself) to the Thai restaurant, bar and health centre. Worth saying here the gym is very well equipped and run. A free shuttle also takes you to the metro station down... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
