Historical Traveler Reviews Silom Serene Bangkok
A hidden Gem
The Silom Serene Hotel may not be the biggest or flashiest in Bangkok but it is certainly worth considering on your next trip there. The service is fantastic, the rooms are very comfortable and the location excellent.
Located just off Silom Road and close to Patpong Markets and Sala Daeng Air Train station, it is very convenient. Access from the airport is also very easy, saving time and money in taxi fares.
Rooms are very well equipped, particularly for the price and the pool is 'cool' great after a hot day. And although they don't advertise it, an Iron and ironing board are available for when you are trying to look neat and tidy.
No so good like I red
Silom Serene Hotel: Although the room was clean, was too small and the floor tile in the bathroom needs an urgent renovation. We stayed in a non-smoking floor, but it smelt worst than smoking floors.
The hotel is in a side street so you don't feel the noise of Patpong, but if you want to visit this night market, you have to cover your nose because the smelling out of the hotel is disgusting.
This isn't definitively a hotel for families, not just for the location, but the pool which is too boring and small for children. The staff was just Ok, not particularly friendly or helpful but Ok.
The breakfast was excellent!!!.
Very nice hotel!
We enjoyed staying there and will return. The staff are extremely courteous and helpful. The rooms are quite nice and the breakfast was exceptional. The fitness room is better than many I have seen at much larger hotels. Silom is a good central area to stay at and it was easy to get around Bangkok from there.
We found this to be a wonderful hotel. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful.
Room - Size was fine
Bathroom - clean
View - our room was looking at an office building, but it is Bangkok after all.
Location - Superb. Right across the street from Patpong, short walk to skytrain or subway.
Staff - very helpful - when we departed, they gave us a note with the cab number etc, just in case we left luggage behind.
Breakfast - excellent - real bacon, eggs, fruit etc.
We will stay again when we head back to Bangkok
I highly recommend the Silom Serene
I have just completed a five night stay at the Silom Serene, and I highly recommend the hotel. It is a well appointed, conveniently located hotel with a very helpful and friendly staff (An hour after checking in, I went to the reception desk with a question. I didn't need to introduce myself; somehow, the desk agent knew my name, even though I had had no dealings with him at all!) The hotel is a quiet oasis in a bustling and noisy part of Bangkok. I have just one criticism: many Thai hotels (unlike their counterparts in other parts of the world) have reasonable rates for guest laundry. The Silom Serene is not one of these hotels -- its laundry prices are exorbitant! I found it more cost effective to buy new socks, underwear, and t-shirts than to have similar items washed by the hotel laundry.
I have been at Silom Serene for at least six times since 2003. I wanted to find a small hotel near the skytrains and this hotel fits my requirement almost perfectly. It is located at the side road so it will take at least 5-10 minutes walk to Sala Daeng BTS station. The Patpong nightmarket is just around the corner.
The biggest pulling factor for me is the staff who have treated me very well since my first visit. The hotel management have managed to retain almost the same employees throughout the years and that helps them in recognising repeat visitors.
The menu at the restaurant is not extensive but the Thai dishes are good. The restaurant is quite popular with the nearby office workers and a Thai friend did memtion that the dishes are quite authentic.
The fitness centre and swimming pool is small and appropriate for a hotel with only about 100 rooms.
I've managed to get rates from USD35-40 depending on the website. Definitely my favourite hotel in this price range when I'm in Bangkok.
Great location, friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms
I stayed at the Silom Serene for 10 days in February and am returning for 8 days in June. It is conveniently located near the skytrain, subway, taxis, many good restaurants and nightlife. It is on a quiet side street. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the service is professional, friendly and accommodating. There is a large breakfast buffet with fresh fruit and a variety of Western and Asian dishes. It's moderately priced and good value. I booked online and depending on the season paid 49 and 51 respectively. There is a pool and a gym. I like smaller boutique hotels and I like being in this area. I have stayed at two other hotels in Bangkok (one twice as expensive and one in a similar price range) and this one is my favorite.
I chose this hotel off the internet. Some 40 years ago I was a student in Bangkok so I had some sense of the city which is, as I suspected, greatly changed. The hotel has a wonderful location between two Sky Train stations and is also close to the subway. It is near Patpong and quite a lively area but sits on a quiet soi so there is no noise porblem. The staff is friendly, the breakfast certainly adequate, and the rooms comfortable. I paid $46 per night which was an incredible price for the product rendered. The only thing that I would comment on is that the pool water perhaps needed a but of filtering. Other than that, marvelous.

... was so bad, that we missed the closing. It would be incredibly frustrating to live in this city. I think it's worst than Los Angeles. We went back to the hotel, rested a bit. Malinda and I joined her friend Bill in the hotel lobby for a cocktail. He is very well traveled and was to show us the city by night like a local. After our cocktail, we took the river ferry which is right behind our hotel. A few stops later, we ...

I found a nice group to do this with and had a chilled day, it was quite notorious in the past for being utter carnage but the government reduced the number of bars from about 30 to 4 so it's much different now thankfully!

Liz and I have successfully arrived in Kanchanaburi! Site #2 has now commenced. I have to say thank you to Bangkok for living up to the wild reputation it's developed over the past few years. The mix of foreigners and locals I came across definitely fleshed out my experience in the gargantuan city. One thing that did surprise me though, was how much the city reminded me of Bangalore. There was a sense of familiarity taking in the architecture while making my ...
