A few steps down Silom Road from the Sofitel Silom Bangkok Hotel, and a 10-minute walk from the Chong Nonsi BTS Skytrain Station, on the “quiet” half of Silom Road, the Narai Hotel offers mid-range accommodations with excellent accessibility to both the Silom business district and the Silom/Pathpong nightlife. With modern, Thai-influenced décor, the crowded entry way leads to a rather dark, circular lobby with a staircase spiraling up to a set of dining tables overlooking the reception area. And, though there were place settings there, I couldn’t quite figure out to which restaurant the dining tables belonged to.All rooms are carpeted, with standard rooms being...Read More

Before being taken over by the Accor chain, the Monarch Lee Gardens Hotel was one of the premiere properties in the area catering to international businesspeople that required easy access to Bangkok’s “old” central business district. Now, carrying Accor’s top-of-the-line brand name, the Sofitel Silom Bangkok retains the high standard of Asian service that patrons of the old Monarch had come to expect, while adding a taste of French style that makes this hotel rather unique amongst the other properties in its price range. About 5 to 10 minutes on foot from the Chong Nonsi BTS Skytrain Station, this hotel is situated at the quiet end of Silom, within walking distance to (but comfor...Read More

Sitting in a small residential lane branching off Soi Saladaeng half-way between Silom Road and Sathorn Road, the Saladaeng Colonnade is a low-rise, European-colonial style building, with seven floors and three levels of underground parking. The property is very conveniently located – just a 3- to 5-minute walk to the Saladaeng BTS Skytrain Station and the Silom MRT (Subway) Station, giving you easy access to the entire mass-transit accessible points in Bangkok. The small, elegantly decorated reception area accentuates a luxurious yet cozy, home-like atmosphere perfect for businesspeople on extended stays, as well as vacationers looking for an alternate to standard hotels. All studio (4...Read More

Just a short 50 meters from Silom Road on Soi Saladaeng, Saladang Place is a relatively new, high-rise complex that offers comfortable, residential-like accommodations at reasonable rates. Like the several other “serviced apartments” on this road, the property is very conveniently located – just a 3 minute walk to the Saladaeng BTS Skytrain Station and the Silom MRT (Subway) Station, Silom Road shopping and theatre complexes, as well as the popular night spots along Pathpong and Thaniya Plaza. Studio apartments, with either one double bed or two singles, range from 40 to 45 sqm (400 to 450 sqf) and include a microwave and mid-size refrigerator. The larger rooms (1 BR, 2BR, and 3B...Read More

Quote:
With the relatively recent appearances of the luxury, riverside resorts (Shangri-La, Peninsula, and Oriental) and the modern, high-rise business hotels along Sukhumvit, no one seems to command as much respect in terms of excellence in service and international prestige as the Dusit Thani. At the entrance of Silom Road, at its intersection with Rama IV Road, the Dusit Thani is well situated in the middle of “everything”. From multi-national banks and corporate offices to the bustling nightlife of Pathpong, from bargain hunting at the Suan Lum Night Bazaar to the raunchy clubs along Thaniya Plaza – everything Bangkok is known for is either within walking distance, or easily accessible via either the ...Read More
