“10 days solo stay in September”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

I stayed in Novotel silom during 10 days of my vacation in September 2012. The staff was friendly and helpfull, room requires a little refreshment (a toilet and a bathroom, room 1508), but in overall it was good. Bottled water every day, free computers with Internet in the lobby, modern design of the room, good location and excellent breakfast made my vacation nice. There was some confusion with early check in but the problem was solved quick enough, I did see that hotel staff tried to do their best to solve any issues. I liked the hotel and woud stay there again if travel to Bangkok or would be glad to suggest it to my friends.

I have always considered Novotel as a solid 4 star hotel, mainly aimed at business travelers, however my recent stay in this hotel proved that it is can be also enjoyed for a holiday makers. Although on a previous occasion I was slightly disappointed with the service overall in this branch, I gave it another try (as event I was attending was conveniently located few doors down), and I am glad that I did! Guest service and house-keeping have improved a lot. I have been treated like in a 5 star hotel. Also, there are some nice improvements have been done to the lobby bar, including live band - which made it very cozy and inviting to have a drink or two.
Rooms are kept clean and tidy with turn-down service and I like overall simple and modern design. I certainly be staying here from now on, every time I come to Bangkok.

We stayed in the junior suit. The hotel and it's service was well above my expectation. Great location and great service. Will definitly stay there again. Executive lounge was also great and handy to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy day in a busy city. Will recommand it to family and friends.

We were taken for a ride by the taxi (deliberately or not deliberately), then we stopped in the middle of Silom road.
We asked around and people told us where to go, we walked about 1 km from the place we got off from the taxi.
We came in quite exhausted and obviously not too happy, then the magic begins.

We were greeted with a big smile, and straight away upgraded to Executive room, with access to Executive Lounge and Late check out at 4 PM on the last day (which is really helpful because our flight is at 8 PM).

The room was clean, excellent and we were really happy about it.

The concierge was really helpful with booking a taxi for our trip to the floating market. They also help us with the their free shuttle service to Sala Daeng BTS. We use the BTS to travel around Bangkok easily.

We have no negative thing to say about this hotel.

Thumbs up for all of you, you all made our holiday in Bangkok such a pleasant holiday and we thank you for that.

Oh, we might be upgraded due to the fact that we hold an accor club membership.

We stayed at the Novotel Silom for 7 nights when visiting Bangkok and used it as a hub from where to reconnoiter the city. Upon check-in we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded from the original deluxe room to a junior suite by the very friendly manager. The room was very tastefully decorated with a separate sitting area, bed room and huge bathroom with a separate bath tub and (rain) shower. Everything was spotless. The room came with a music system that allowed you to connect your iPod. Complimentary fruits were on the table and the mini bar was well-stocked. The air conditioning functioned well. The view from the room was towards the river of which you could just catch a glimpse behind the hotel buildings that line the Chao Phraya river banks. The lobby is spatious but gives a somewhat empty uncozy feel. The bar is located in the lobby but due to the lack of a bit of more intimately confined space with dim light for instance, the lobby bar is not particularly appealing. Breakfast was nice and offered a wide range of warm and cold options. Variation was perhaps not at its best especially for long-staying guests but then again how much variation can you really build into a breakfast ? Generally the breakfast was in line with what you would expect from a 4-star hotel. Dinner was perhaps not so ideal. We tried it twice both nights because we were too tired to brave the humidity and heat after a full day of exploring the city. In general the staff have low English skills and this is a true pity because they obviously have the right disposition towards working with guests. Due to the lack of basic English however my beef cam back well-done instead of the rare that I had asked. And the white wine turned out to be red when served... A real pity because with some investment in the training of the staff's basic (English) language skills from the side of the hotel, this could be easily corrected. The restaurant works with a buffet formula but does allow you to supplement the buffet with a (limited) choice of a la carte dishes. The price is reasonable but if you don't mind the heat you can eat better (and in more pleasant settings) for less elsewhere outside the hotel. Dinner is served in the same hall as the breakfast and in the evenings this is an issue. The feel of the breakfast room at night is unpleasant and the lack of other guests eating in the hotel gives it a sad, drab feel. The food however was good. Some small things could be improved. For Europeans it is a bit of a bummer when the staff remove the plate form the person who is finished eating while the other table guest is not yet. Etiquette normally leaves both plates on the table until both guests are finished. It makes the guest who's not yet finished feel less rushed and less conspicuous.

A few times we went out in the rain. Umbrellas are available from the concierge but the second time they had run out. As mentioned the hotel offers a concierge service but we had the impression that the concierge staff didn't fully understand what their tasks are. As a result we found the service level highly variable. One person went out of his way in trying to secure us a taxi. His colleague the next evening when asked to call us a cab limited himself to pointing to the road. Eventually (after insisting) he did go out and negotiated with the guys on the hotel parking lot. He went back inside. After waiting 15 minutes we went back in and he then said that they didn't want to take us. A bit sad that this had to happen. Obviously he could have told us instead of letting us stand there for 15 minutes.

We had access to the business lounge and found that to our liking. it's a bright nice, quiet spot to relax in and the staff here - contrary to the rest of the hotel - are both very very friendly and service oriented and speak excellent English!! At the same floor as the lounge is a (modestly sized) swimming pool and a (modestly sized) gym. We didn't make use of either but both facilities looked clean and nice.

If you book a tour from the tour desk in the hotel then know that they work with a tour agency at Khao San Road. You will be picked up at the hotel and then dropped together with other tourists from hotels from all over Bangkok at Khao San Road in the morning where you will be partitioned into the bus/van corresponding to the tour of your choice. We booked with them but previous to that we had also booked from the travel agency right next to the hotel outside. From them we got a private pick-up, a small group of co-daytrippers and no chaotic drop-offs at a Khao San sidewalk. It's the same price. I would not go for the hotel desk agency anymore.

All in all good quality (clean) hotel facitlities, however with some room for improvement on the services side. Nice stay. Competitive pricing. .

Room Tip: Higher floors offer nice views. Don't worry about river side rooms or not. Even on the side lo...
