Today started with the boat ride downriver on the River Kwai from our resort to the dock where we were to meet our bus. Our group loaded onto the bus and commenced driving the four hours to Ayutthaya. Ayutthaya is a large city located in south central Thialand and served as the third capital city from the 12th to the 18th- …
Today started off with a 8:00am bus ride to the Chao Phraya River where we boarded a tour boat and headed up the river. We experienced magnificent view of temples and the royal palace from the river that can only be seen from that vantage point. After traveling up river for a few kilometers we veered off into the canal district and toured the local …
Today with only three hours of sleep, I headed out with my group to Assumption University. The private Catholic University has roughly 20,000 students and stands out in Thailand as it teaches only in English. Upon our arrival we were greeted by the Vice President of Academic Affairs, the Director of International Student Relations, and Assistant to …

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Sukosol Bangkok
This hotel was great for our family. We are low key, and though it seems fancier, it was comfortable. We walked there after leaving the airport via airlink, they had good food and drink, a nice pool - though cold. They arranged a babysitter (two gals arrived) so we could have a dinner on the town and our kids could remain safely at the hotel. They arranged a fabulous river tour - really, it was great. :) Would totally stay there again if we went back to Bangkok.

Great oasis in busy Bangkok near Skytrain and with delightful piano bar!

Historical Traveler Reviews The Sukosol Bangkok
We have stayed for 2 nights on 4 ocasions when passing through Bangkok.
Acessible to city by nearby skytrain with 1 stop so very convenient but out of the ratrace. Quicker transfer from airport than central hotels
Great foyer , excellent food,large quiet well equipped rooms,& very helpful staff. Pool & gym good. Hotel has a pleasant ambience & at no time have we experienced tourist groups & it does not have the feel of such. We would always use it for short stays & concierge particularly obliging with advice & luggage storage. We introduced an Asian business friend to hotel & he has changed his allegiance to Siam City
Excellent lobby, excellent service, excellent room, perfectly clean, excellent bathroom...excellent everything!! Just the laundry service, is a bit expensive.
If i'll come back to bangkok (i really think so) i'll stay surely in siam city.
Siam City, Great Hotel, Bad Location
We have just returned from a holiday in Thailand. Siam City is a luxury city hotel with lovely clean rooms and everything you might need. We enjoyed our stay here.
However the big downside is the location, there is nothing in the vicinity and the VERY busy road outside means it can take ages to get anywhere by taxi. (Cross the road to pick up a taxi it can save a lot of time!) The sky train is nearby which is a plus but it is limited to where it goes.
The pool area is very nice giving a feel of Thailand in amongst high rise buildings.
All in all a good 4/5 star hotel but I would pick a better location. The China Princess in the heart of Chinatown is far better situated but not quite as luxurious (we stayed there last year)
A really good hotel
We stayed for a week at this hotel and found it extremely clean and well located to access all Bangkok's touristic sites either by bus or by monorail. The area around the hotel is a safe one and there is even a small 7/11 shop next to the hotel.
Good but not brilliant......
Location : Nothing of any interest in the close vicinity of the hotel, however only 5 minutes walk from the Skytrain (Phaya Thai stop), which is very handy. When I stayed here, there was building work going on in the street outside (not connected to the hotel), I think that a by-pass was being built.
Food : Several different restaurants, including Italian, Chinese, and Thai. It also has a very good bakery. The cakes were exceedingly good.
Room : Not bad. It wasn't the largest or the smallest. I stayed in the wing (there is the tower or the wing). The bathroom is a little out-dated.
Other : I had a very good thai massage at the Lotus Spa - very good. If you want to use the internet you need to get a username and password from the cashier desk. It cost me Thb 200 for half an hours use. There also is a 7-11 next door where you can get cheap drinks/snacks - very useful.
Overall : The staff were very friendly and I encountered no problems. Is it a 4* hotel. Only just. Would I recommend it - Yes. Will I stay there again - probably, although I would choose to stay closer to Siam Square.
There are better places than here
Our experience of Siam City wasn't that great. The rooms are fading and not that clean. A hotel that relies on package tours so if you are a single traveller/couple you tend to become lost from when you check in between the hordes getting off one bus or another.
It is not really close to the hub of town, or any thing much.
The sky train is across the road, but we found that when we came back at night it was fairly deserted and on some occasions it was a brisk walk back to the lights of the foyer.
For around the same price, the Pathuwam Princess is in a better spot; close to markets, shops, restaurants etc.
But my absolute pick is the Amari Watergate and believe it is worth the few extra dollars.
An Upscale Hotel at Relatively Low Price
Stayed here Feb 23-26, 2005 on a business trip to Bangkok. I booked on the hotel web site and got an $85 rate for a deluxe room, King bed.
The hotel room was very impressive. spotlessly clean, elegantly furnished and huge. Very comfortable bed. Gorgeous overesized marble bathroom with nice bathroom amenities. I would compare it to the Elliott Hyatt in Seattle, the Buckhead Hyatt in Atlanta, or the Swissotel in Chicago in terms of quality of the rooms. I have stayed at one other hotel in Bangkok (the Airport Amari hotel, which cost $278 per night and was not nearly as nice as the Siam City); $85 really is a very good value for this hotel, especially given the good quality of the room!!
The dining in the hotel is also good and surprisingly inexpensive for the good quality. The breakfast buffet is extensive and excellent quality. Both western and Asian items, both hot and cold are available as well as delicious baked goods. Even deli meats and cheeses --at breakfast! Excellent coffee with refills. It cost just over $10; a steal! I really enjoyed starting the day with the breakfast buffet.
Dinner in the same hotel restaurant was pretty good (although we ate better Thai food at outside restaurants for far less money for most of our meals). Again, both western and thai menus are available.
The cons for this hotel...well, given the price I can't complain too much. But I did find the front desk staff to be less than friendly at times. At checkout, there was a problem with incorrect charges and the person checking me out was obviously annoyed that I asked the charge to be taken off; customers do not deserve that attitude when it is the hotel that has made the mistake.
Also, one of the other guys in our party had a more expensive "executive floor" room which included breakfast in the executive lounge. Well, he came down to the main restaurant for breakfast instead (because the breakfast in the executive lounge was not as extensive), and they would not let him in! They insisted that he could only have breakfast in the executive lounge. Pay more for your room, get less, it seemed.
Also, there's not much else to do at the hotel. It's relatively small in size. I'm sure there are other hotels in Bangkok that are much larger and offer more restaurants, shops, etc. But there's so much to do in Bangkok, you don't want to spend too much of your time in the hotel anyway!
I would recommend this hotel highly. I am giving it 4 stars; really it should be 4.5 stars (deduct half a star for the inconsistent service). I hope I can return soon!
Siam City aint bad
Stayed here for four nights and it's not a bad hotel. Stayed in the second block - a wing off to the left of reception - the rooms are fairly large, bathrooms could do with some updating but it generally offered good service. The swimming pool was very nice - although it was slippy round the edge of the pool - be careful! But the gym was a real let down.
However the hotel is in a good location and is close to the Skytrain, shops and sights.
Two things - get a taxi from the other side of the road to the hotel - else you have to sit in all the traffic on that side as everything seems to be in that direction. Secondly don't bother trying to cross the road at the big junction up the street - it's near impossible (even with the traffic lights) - try to cross in front of the hotel!
An excellent hotel with superb staff! I stayed here last Xmas and beginning January.
Best quality-price hotel in Bangkok !
The Siam City is definitely the best quality-price hotel in Bangkok !
It's really a 4-stars hotel... Unlike other Bangkok hotels that get a lot of stars, but do NOT deserve them !
Siam City has wonderful large rooms with large bath, the housekeeping is fantastic, hotel's staff is really helpful.
Siam City's location is in front of the Suan Pakkard Museum in Downtown Bangkok, just 1 minute by walk from the Skytrain's Phayathai station, so you don't even need to take a taxi, and this is really an enormous plus in a city like Bangkok !
Siam City's Spa & swimming pool are marvellous, all the area has been renovated, and this part of Siam City definitely gets a 5-stars rating !
Food is amazing, breakfast at the main restaurant is fantastic, there are a lot of dining options in the hotel, and I highly recommend the "Spice&Rice" Thai restaurant, as well as the Japanese restaurant (the best in town).
We didn't try the Italian restaurant, but, we're from Europe, so why go as far as Asia and eat pizza & pasta ?!
Siam City has an impressive tour desk, they can arrange whatever you want to visit, even a 3 days-trip to Cambodge !
Overall rating for Siam City: 19/20 !
