We were hesitant to try SilQ even though it ranks so highly on tripadvisor. We're used to staying at Novotel Siam Sq, the centre of the shopping district. We took a chance, based on the numerous positive reviews we've read and I'm happy to add another one! We stayed a total of 10 nights, and got a good rate, daily newspaper (The Nation), free local SIM card (which we didn't use and returned upon checking-out), 1000baht food credit and great service. The bed in the Deluxe room is super wide, I suspect it's two doubles joined together cos it's much wider than a king bed. It was perfect for us as we had a super wriggler 7 yr-old sleeping in between of us. Bed is very comfortable, room spotlessly clean, though the room was a little dark at night even with all the lights on. We liked that housekeeping put three towels in the bathroom for us every day, knowing we had three ple in the room. Staff was great, friendly and always smiling, ready to help with directions, especially writing our destinations in Thai for the cab driver. Free wireless internet in room, speed was good. Asok BTS is less than a 5 min walk away. Robinson dept store too, with Tops supermarket below plus a food court. Several massage parlours near the hotel. A good Pad Thai streetside stall near the hotel (opens late afternoon to late night). Two 7-11s (one just opposite the hotel) nearby. Really convenient and we really couldn't ask for more. My one small complaint is that the water temperature of the shower couldn't be controlled well. It was alright for myself and my husband as we rather enjoyed the cold water but it's either too hot or too cold, we somehow couldn't get it 'just right' for our kid. Breakfast is limited (though tasty) and after 11 days there, I naturally skipped it a few times. Staff was good about serving latecomers though. I arrived after 10.30am a couple of times and was still served. I could go on and on, but shan't. Overall, a great small hotel, comfortable and cosy and really value for money! You won't regret staying here!
