4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

I had a great weekend here in Bangkok. I booked my flight and hotel from Air Asia from Bali at a very good price. I got a little worried about the hotel since i read so many bad reviews here.. I wrote to the reservation office at the hotel (Ms. saijai) and she assured me, that i would have a renovated superior room. Check in went smooth. Very friendly staff. The room was fine and huge. Stayed one night, But since i wanted to check the deluxe rooms, I asked if I could change. No problem with that, even it was 9 AM. For an extra 16 USD a night. I forgot a few things at my first room, but it was brougt to my other room. Even a small bag of peanuts. Great service (I did not even ask) I have to admit that the deluxe rooms are so much better. All new and very nice interior. More like a suite. The breakfast here is a buffet with all you need. Good and fresh food. The rooftop pool is nice. Only complaint is that it is not serviced, and no pool towels. I think the hotel should put some staff there full time as long the pool are open. All in all a very good experience. Yes yes!!!! The hallways are a little bit hot.. So what!!! Its not that you are gonna spend all day there :-)

Stayed here for 3nights, check in process was as per normal. Done in an efficient and hospitable manner. (I also come from the Hotel Industry myself) The only worrying thing is that I was quite off with their Concierge service as I know that as a Concierge, you are to give guests valuable key experiences and tips to enjoy the city more but it kinda sounded like they just wanted to do business for those city tours they were promoting...why you ask? because when I asked question like "What if I were to take my own way to this...or that...." the staff didnt look so happy to help. Bell service was corteous and great, room was huge, but could've used the space more efficiently. Room was quiet and peaceful, it has a balcony if you want to enjoy the breeze and the early morning sun. The room was made up on time all thru out my stay. Very limited cable tv channels so I suggest bring your own entertainment (ipad, laptop) Breakfast was adequate, not luxurious but enough. Wait staff were corteous and pleasant. Wifi service was not so good on my floor. (17th) pool on the rooftop was excellent. Location of the hotel is not as prime but if you wanna escape the bustling city and wouldnt want to go very far away, this hotel is for you. Thank you Furama Silom!

This was my second stay in 2013 at this hotel. I chose to stay at Furama Silom since I liked this hotel very much at the begining of this year. The hotel is in Silom area. It's close to Sala Daeng station, Patpong night market and Taksin pier. It has spacious and clean rooms. Breaksfast is very nice. I recomment is hotel everybody who wants to stay in Silom ara.

Our first trip to Bangkok. Soon handled the tuktuks-fabulous, got scammed but that was half the fun. Location of motel was great, staff very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were large and the cleaner wonderful, top marks to the laundry service as well. We really couldn't fault anything about this hotel or the location.I fell ill and was attended to quickly, seen by Doctor on call at motel sent by taxi to hospital, received medical attention, medication given and returned to the motel inside an hour.

Huge misrepresentation where the photos do not match the actual room. In actual fact only level 10 and 11 are renovated for the superior room. The rest of the superior rooms are rated 1 star at best.

Corridor is run down with no air on and hotel felt more like backpackers lodge. Poorly lit with 80s Reno that greatly needs upgrading. How can they advertise as 4star??????

DO NOT TRUST THE PHOTOS OF THEIR ROOMS IN THE WEBSITE.

This is a not considered a 4-star hotel because some parts of the interior looks old and needs repainting. The sauna beside the gym is good plus the swimming pool on the top flow. In terms of location, this is near pat pong and night market, 1 tuktuk away and about 10-15 min. MTR station is 2 blocks away from the hotel. The buffet breakfast is so so, needs more varieties. Over-all, since you can't expect high-end hotels in Bangkok, this is great for travelers whose purpose is for work and leisure.
