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.

Today we decided to head to downtown Bangkok to see where Ray is working and what the city is all about. As it is Monday, and we have been warned that traffic is really BAD on Monday mornings, we had a leisurely morning before striking out at around 9:45. Well apparently, traffic is still BAD at that time. It took us well over an hour to get to Ray's building when usually Ray can make it in less than half that time. Oh well, one of the things you deal with ...
... I liked it that way. People spoke about going out for a drink, but I was far more interested in food, at first it seemed everyone agreed, but eventually most people went their separate ways. In ended up just being me, Becky, Emily and a guy called Mark who went down to Asoke in search of food. We'd heard of the Black Swan, so we went in search of that, and once we found it, I think we fell in love. It was a properly rustic looking old British pub with cider and excellent pub grub. ...
... in our hostel by the river (sure to be mosquito heaven by the evening) and off to the weekend market 'chatuchak', amongst the largest in the world, which was absolutely mental. It was a relief to sit and take a breather after a while and watch the world go by. Until the thai new year water guns started spraying and we joined in, blessing the buddha with water. We hadn't heard amazing things about Bangkok and as much as I'm glad to see it, especially to explore the big ...
... and booze. Rat is sure if I don't have a stroke now, I will later. I think the US
government has joined a conspiracy around the world to dissuade people from eating
natural fats so they will eat the corporate ones. Rat provides such great service. Even
though she totally disagrees with my choices, she went out and bought some coconut
milk for me. The great thing is that it came in 1/2 dozen 5 oz boxes instead of big
... With the added bonus of totally natural recycle able packaging.
We want to find a coffee stall run by someone Jamie knows in order to buy some of his coffee. Gong Valley - another mission to safeguard the income and make a fair trade basis for the coffee growers in Chumpong - and the coffee is good too. We have almost given up the search when we spy a coffee bean sack and smell the definite aroma. Coffee purchase accomplished and we head for ...
