We stayed twice at The Siam the last two weeks of March and it was magical. From the moment you arrive and are greeted by the incredibly kind and attentive staff, you know this is no ordinary hotel. The architecture of the building is striking-- think a modern Asian take on the Musee d'Orsay! It is open, light and filled with the extraordinary Thai and Chinese art and artifacts collection of the hotel owners. Walking through the public spaces of the hotel is a joy, each time focusing on different pieces of wonderful art or appreciating the exquisite interior gardens. Being situated on the river is just delightful-- both to sit and enjoy a cool drink while the boats glide by and to hop on the hotel's boat service and avoid the impossible Bangkok traffic.
The rooms are spacious, well designed, comfortable and beautiful-- designed with a modern sensibility. Bathrooms are large and well laid out.
The food is fabulous. Since this was most in our family's first trip to Bangkok, we ventured out to some of the better rated restaurants and ended up finding the food at The Siam better than any we had outside. And sitting on the beautiful terrace and watching the river life pass by is just enchanting.
But, what truly distinguishes The Siam is the service. And, as everywhere, this begins at the top. The General Manager, Jason Friedman, is superb-- he seems to be everywhere, attending to each guest's needs and making sure that his/her experience is nothing short of perfection. He has trained his staff superbly and it shows! Our butler, Ahn, made our stay seamless and stress-free, carefully unpacking and packing our things , making sightseeing and dining plans and even arranging to fix one of our travel bags that had been broken en route! And, the hotel even offered kick boxing lessons in which our teenage sons participated and loved.
Having experienced the oasis that is The Siam, we would never stay anywhere else! Many thanks to Jason and all of the wonderful staff for a completely delightful and wonderful stay.
