Silom City Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Well as most of you probably know I was terrified of going to Bangkok because of all the stuff I had heard and documentaries I had seen on TV about it. My worries were unfounded, the place is great with loads to see and the people are extremely polite and friendly.
The city is at extremes, it is very modern with high rise flats, …
Bangkok = sensory overload. Constant noise, overstuffed sidewalks, gaudy temples, relentless Tuk-Tuk drivers, the sweet aromas of food and the stench of waste... its all at once amazing and horrifying.
Still, I can't say we didn't love it; its all part of the allure... what makes Bangkok, Bangkok. We're floored at just how different, yet …
If you never actually joined the circus as a kid, there's always Bangkok, Thailand. We knew we were in a fun place when we landed at Suvarnabhumi International Airport and stepped into a world of color. Lavender chairs in the departure lounge , batik uniforms on airport personnel, taxis colored pink, green, tangerine and azul! The land of 100 …
We had a brief stop here before heading home. We met up with our friends, Chris and Romina, again. We visited the Night Bazaar for some shopping and then went to a great dinner at The Blue Elephant.

Well, after coming to Bangkok for 30 days and then flying home for the same amount of time, it started to get rather expensive after about 4 trips and I either had to stop going so often or just make the plunge.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Silom City Hotel. The hotel is located down a soi off Silom Rd so is away from traffic noise. The soi offers a great slice of Bangkok street life with a market, fruit stalls and street side restaurants. The pier and sky train are within walking distance to the hotel.
All of the hotel staff were always friendly and helpful. Our room was a standard hotel room, perhaps a bit tired but clean and functional. Breakfast was good. There were both western and Asian options. Good filter coffee.
Would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it.
