Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn Silom Hotel
Extremely disgustedfrom piggyjes
Not an amzing hotel, but great for the pricefrom Whitsundays_Local
I stayed in the superior crown tower and found the room to be clean, comfortable and only negative was it was slightly dated.
The rest of the hotel was clean, friendly but certainly didn't have any personal touch/service, but what would you expect from a hotel that big.
It was undergoing renovations in the lobby (Nov 05), but this didn't affect me in any way, except a few paint fumes when booking in.
Location was convenient, 5-8 minutes to sky train, 10 minutes to river terminal and 10 minutes to the night markets/Pat Pong.
Overall, for a reasonable place to stay at a mid price range, it was great.
Unremarkable hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
dreadful hotel in a good location!from lauralou1
I imagine that 20+ years ago this was a lovely hotel and probably when all the refurbs are finished it may be again, but at the moment it is in a tired state.
The bedrooms were ok, nothing special, abit dark due to the dark navey carpet and dark drab bedding. On the plus side a very comfy, massive, soft bed though.
Pretty much the only excellent comment we can find is that it was in a great central location but if this is the sort of hotel you should expect, we'll stick to the Amari Atrium next time, as it is bright, modern and classy at a slightly cheaper price, albeit further out!!
Super service on the 23rd floorfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel itself has been undergoing gradual refurbishment over the past 12 months and the results in the lobby and in the rooms are very attractive.
The Club floor rooms give you access to the comfortable Club lounge on the 23rd floor with all day refreshments available. What sets the 23rd floor at the Holiday Inn apart from many of its Club competitors is the friendly and efficient staff. Nothing is too much trouble and you are genuinely made to feel very welcome. I was particularly impressed by the friendly check out and being made to feel like more than just another guest.
A Wonderful Surprisefrom RPaderna
Great value!from IBCD
Executive Suite: You need to get this! For an extra $10 per night, you have access to the free Happy Hour (drinks and snacks) during 6-8 PM, free terminals for internet access, superior room, separate check-in, free pressing for clothes, etc.
Location: Convenient to highway (which matters a lot in Bangkok traffic). All taxi drivers immediately know where it is, which is handy when you don't know Thai and so cannot give him directions. Convenient to restaurants and shopping.
Facilities: Large clean room with superior service. Elegant lobby. Very good free breakfast with huge selection. Nice pool which was mostly unused.
Service: We were elegantly served by the people at the desk in the Executive section. They made every effort to make sure that we were comfortable.
Good price - Good location - Good experiencefrom iamlisad
Excellent Food, Friendly Staff, Inadequate Air-Conditioningfrom nevuel
ll be back !!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Complimentary breakfast was also served in the Lounge with an equally good choice of made to order hot entrees & cold food. Thankfully this was available since I checked out the breakfast place & there was a very long line. I really think the executive club upgrade is worth the price with the more personalized attention that you receive as well as all the other inclusive benefits.
Top Local Tips for Bangkok
dont be afraid of taxis in Bangkok There are so many scams and conmen in Bangkok - I was told on myh first day that a major site was closed, when it wasnt by someone official looking, who then recommended I take a tuktuk to see other sites in the city. I ignored him and went to the site anyway (Grand Palace) which was open as normal despite the lying in state for recently deceased Princess). However I was hesitant to take taxies until I realised they were cheap. The Thai Tourist booth girl told me just to make sure that the meter starts at 35 baht. Once I felt confident about that all was fine. One taxi driver asked me 'how much do I want to pay' for the trip I was taking. I told him that I saw her didnt have the meter on, and that I know I had paid 60 for the same journey earlier that day, so fi he didnt agree to that, then to let me out and I would find another cab. He mumbled something and turned on the meter. He was also the only taxi driver I didnt tip - although its all cheaper than London, its the principle.
Great restaurant Go to Banyan tree hotel near silom and you will find a restaurant in the top of a 67 story building in open air, that will allow you to have a 360º view over Bangkok. Great food and not very expensive. Normally you have to book 1 or 2 days before but if you go there before sunset most probably you will get a table and a nice show.
What's so great abt Bangkok? Nothing great at all abt the shopping. If u want the real stuff, you pay for it...much more than in Singapore or KL. If you're after the cheap imitation stuff, then yes, you're in piracy heaven. DVDs are cheaper in Bali...clothes cheaper (and better) in SIN or KUL...lamguage can be a real problem. the only positive thing is if you're looking for culture and art and some home decor items. Don't waste yr time in Suan Lung market (overpriced and rude)...stick to Chatuchak and be prepared for heat, crowds and loads of bargaining. My wife's style of bargaining was to offer 1/3 of what they quote and move up from there. But only do so if you're serious abt buying...or else u run the risk of pissing them off. Also helps if u have in yr head what price you're willing to pay in the end. (It's called "discipline"). Patpong market is not bad but again a pain with all the girlie bars around.
