The Seasons Bangkok Siam Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
Despite what channel 7, a current affairs and today tonight are saying about Thailand's current political pickle... it ain't that bad. Currently the real inconveniences are (for travellers... aka moi): The curfew that was 10pm to 5am, but has been changed to 12am to 4am and the cockblocking to news broadcasts: so faceB and twitter ...
... because I forgot to do the bird poo gesture...I'll try it again tomorrow.
Lunch was amazing and we decide to make our way down to catch a river bus and head upstream to take in the Grand Palace area. Its a bit of a madhouse down there with people shouting in Thai, the engine roaring and the guide lady gabbling into a microphone in a language that was only vaguely English.
The loading and unloading of ...
... around my neck and taking pictures of everything I saw down the street because people appeared pleasant and willing to help us find our way around! Now, did we have the appearance of being lost?
Glancing around, I could see skyscrapers along the river whereas down the street, old buildings all stacked one next to the other ...
... We've decided to sample some of the treats when we return to catch our flight home so will get some pictures then. Got up at 6 the next morn to collect Danni from the airport; not an easy run to the airport as there were cross city marches and protests around an upcoming election so a forty min journey took me nearly 2 hrs as there were thousands of people marching the streets and ...
... school for half-days. Her 7th birthday is this week, so we gave her a locking journal, necklace, and wrapped her in a pink garland to celebrate. Nitho is still an amazing curry cook and is also 5 months pregnant! Needless to say, they are very busy. We helped clear the backyard, fix the shower and some lights, and handed out pamphlets about the story of Christmas in a neighboring village with Khreiko. Not surprisingly, we were asked (in Thai) if we were siblings. Per ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Seasons Bangkok Siam Hotel
Value for money
I stayed at this hotel in Dec 2006 for 2 nights. Got what i believe was a really good rate (800baht/night) direct from the hotel website.
Cheap rate, clean, helpful staff, bed and room size adequate/spacious, safe (although there is no in room safe - use safe deposit boxes downstairs), reasonable selection of cable channels.
No metro station nearby (about 10 minute walk to Victory Monument BTS). There is a bus stop outside that can take you into Siam - perhaps try finding out which buses do this thus saving you the walk to the BTS.
Shower has poor, sporadic water pressure.
nice room~~~ comfortable bed and everything is clean. but there r 2 things u need to do if u live there. first is learn how to take the bus. becoz the str8 road to siam is not allowed for taxi. so it would take almost half an hour to get there. but bus takes only 10 mins. second is searching the best rate online. i found some website could really offer low rates. so u gotta do lots of search, google it~
This Ibis hotel has only recently opened and is looking very new. The reception area and the restaurant are nice and stylish and the rooms are good as well.
Good budget hotel in Bangkok. Hotel is clean, room are good, spacious with air-conditioner, nice bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water.
Having got onto websites that described Ibis Siam as a recently opened 'new hotel' I went with the notion that we have booked into a spanking new building.
Not too bad...
This hotel is generally an average choice. The staffs are quite helpful and can speak average english. The room is not too small but the hotel is only about 8 storeys high.
One thing that they need to improve is probably their breakfast. The food is almost the same everyday and there is very little variety. They have only around 7-8 variety. Everyday, you can see porridge,fried kway teow, ham, hotdog, some vegetables,corn flakes,bread,watermelon,papaya and pineapples. That's about all for the food they provide. Very limited choice!!
Good - ok - good
ibis siam is a good simple hotel. it is cheap and looks it despite being new and decked out with modern furniture. the hotel is located alittle far by foot from the skytrain but it is a nice walk down rangam rd so its ok. staff were helpful but didnt soeak great english. the room is ok a little overheated but spacious and clean. wireless is not cheap but worth the stay.
THIS HOTEL IS NOT TOOOOO FAR FROM THINGS but it is not close either. breakfast was passable but very limited.
A newly open budget hotel in Bangkok, the first by an international hotel chain I think!
A very enjoyable stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. The cafe has a good breakfast selection and we also found the food to be pretty good in the evenings. The Skytrain is a good 10 minute walk which may not suit everyone, but the airport bus (route A1 I think) stops right outside the door which is very convenient.
Good for Business
I just come back to Ibis Siam, it's a new opening hotel...the location is perfect because the hotel is close to Pratunam and to the skytrain station. I really enjoy my stay, I was there for business, the wifi acces and the large desk was helpfull. The hotel is quiet and the staff friendly... It's the best value for money hotel that I meet in Bangkok, since I am travelling here.
