Trinity Silom Hotel
Ranked #187 of 879 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I stayed at this hotel for an extended period so I had a good perspective on everything the hotel had to offer.

The Glow Trinity Silom hotel is a nice boutique hotel in the middle of the Silom business district in Bangkok. The Chong Nonsi BTS station is within a 5 minutes walk and you can easily get to the Siam shopping area within a 5 minute or so ride on the skytrain. The MRT subway is also easily accessible being one BTS stop away at Sala Daeng, which is also the station where a newly remodeled mall, Silom Complex, is located. The hotel is located at the entrance to a bustling street market during the weekdays with a large number of vendors selling everything from famed Thai desserts/fish cakes to clothing, being aptly named the Soi "Lalai Sup" market meaning "money draining street." There is also a small-ish and unremarkable food court during the weekdays under the hotel called the "Trinity Food Mall." A few buildings down there is also an older supermarket. The location, although a bit difficult to find initially as it's down a small soi (street), is the ultimate of convenience.

All of the staff were more than willing to help at all times. Thank you in particular to Khun Aaron, Jeng, and Por for the excellent service from the time we arrived to the last minute we departed. Khun Por was particularly excellent, selling us an excellent tour to Ayutthaya and also inquiring about me when he found out that I had suffered a small bout of food poisoning on my trip (he even offered to call a taxi to transport me to the hospital). Whenever we would be sitting in the beautiful lobby, he would offer us glasses of tropical iced tea. All the staff spoke excellent English as this hotel is aimed towards foreigners (although we communicated with the staff in Thai).

We ate the included breakfast buffet everyday at "The Foodie," the hotel restaurant. Because we stayed for an extended period, the food became repetitive but was consistently high quality. Omelets made to order were always available. As a suggestion, please add more Thai food to the breakfast other than the porridge, fried rice, and noodle dish (perhaps adding ปาท่องโก๋ (Thai donuts) or an additional soup/curry. And maybe some traditional Thai desserts). Also, the bacon was nontraditional and rather unappetizing...they resembled bricks of processed pork like fried spam. Chicken sausage was also rather tasteless but besides these 2 staples, much of the other food was excellent. The fruit was always very fresh. We also ate dinner at "The Foodie" and I must say the traditional Thai food is one of the best we've ever had. Not cheap, but the quality and taste was amazing.

In contrast, neighboring restaurants were just mediocre, especially the Chinese Claypot rice place. We did not try the nearby Japanese ramen place, the Isaan (northeastern Thai) restaurant, or the Peony Tea Lounge.

Rooms were very trendy with a flat screen TV, Ipod docks, and a DVD player. Excellent a/c (and sometimes too excellent). Very comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a good shower. However, the water pressure became weak every few seconds which is a minor annoyance. The shower also lacked a door, which meant that water would often spill onto the bathroom floor. Once again, minor annoyance. Our power did get completely cut once, but was easily fixed with a phone call to the lobby and a quick visit from the hotel engineer. Free wi-fi was consistently excellent and the available computers in the lobby were a useful amenity (only one computer in the lobby is a sit-down computer, the other 4 are stand-up terminals).

Main complaint with the rooms is that the sound-proofing is rather poor. We could hear people walking in the halls at all hours of the night. We were also awoken once early in the morning by our next door neighbor (we had the type of room with the door that can adjoin into another room) and we heard every single word of her argument over the phone with her boyfriend (and wished she would hurry up and break up so we could go back to sleep). Also, no views in the main building. Our room, 421, looked out onto a depressing neighboring apartment building so the curtains were usually kept closed. Because the curtains were dark, this limited the amount of natural sunlight in the room. As a suggestion, please consider adding another, lighter curtain that would still ensure privacy but allow sunlight to get into the room.

There is a small "laundromat" aka a washer and dryer in the main building on the 6th floor that charges reasonable prices....convenient for extended stay guests.

Swimming pool across the street on the 9th floor is excellently maintained, with an amazing view of the Bangkok skyscrapers. It appeared to be a 25m lap pool complete with a deep end/backstroke flags and separated into large lanes (4), so it is a lap swimmer's paradise. The pool may not be as appropriate for guests with younger children. Despite the excellent pool, however, the gym and rest of the facilities are lackluster. Old cardio equipment/weights in a smallish room. Locker rooms did have a sauna, but it is also showing it's age with rusty lockers and a dark atmosphere...but everything worked. There is also a tennis court (not used) and outdoor running track (we always found it too hot to run outside). Note that these fitness amenities are in the Trinity Complex building across the street...not in the main hotel complex.

The hotel is constantly improving, and now has a new "premier" wing in the back that I might be interested in staying in next time. Definitely recommend the hotel and looking forward to staying here again on my next trip to Bangkok.

Room Tip: Higher rooms in the main building may have better views (or at least get more sunlight).

the hotel is great , the resturant is wonderful , the staff are very helpful , but..... with no signs on Silom Road it is very difficult to find . The local taxi drivers had no idea where this hotel is , they were constantly asking us how to get there (?) . we arrived on the fantastic BTS train service from the airport then spent 30 mins trying to find the joint .It will only take some signage on Silom Road to solve this problem , what a pain in the bum. The food in the hotel is very very good , english newspapers are available but there are none on display at reception , so ask .Internet cafe is fine , free wifi .All in all a pleasant & restful hotel , our room was huge , the bathroom fine , all we wanted for a 5 night stay . . we will stay again & recommend to any expats that ask .

Was a tad perturbed after booking a room on discovering this hotel was right on the fringe of the red light district on Bangkok. Nevertheless it was a safe and enjoyable stay. Smiley staff, clean room (although the ipod dock wasn't working) with a market right at the doorstep. The Skytrain station is a 5-minute walk away and the malls are all within easy reach. The only problem we had was that the taxi drivers were not quite sure of the location of the hotel even after providing them the address.

Booked this hotel because of its close proximity to the Skytrain (best way to avoid Bangkok's shocking traffic congestion) and its swimming pool. Pool ( shared with neighbouring hotel) was terrific - 25m long,which must be unusual in this city and the location was perfect: close to the Night Market ( for those interested in buying tat!) but, more usefully, lots of restaurants at all price levels. Terrific breakfasts, staff were very helpful and informed, liked its slightly funky decoration. Free, and good, WiFi too. Snags? Hotel is in two buildings, with slightly claustrophobic connecting corridor.

Thought it great value. Would definitely recommend, and would use again very happily.

this hotel has not any value compared to other smaller hotels in the same category. the rooms are tiny and so are the batrooms. location is the only advantage this hotel has...otherwise not a gem at all. Serive was ok but a little "robotic" and there seems to be no mnagement around. Breakfats was poor with limited selection and slow coffee service.We will not be be back and cannot recommend to anyone. We rater pay more and get proper rooms and facilities etc..

Had a bad start in Thailand upon arriving - traffic was a nightmare and the cab driver took me to the wrong street (had to drag my luggage around for 20mins trying to find the hotel!) Staff was extremely helpful when I finally arrived. The hotel is definitely trendy without a doubt - filled with colors and atmosphere at the lobby was vibrant. Room is spacious overlooking the CBD area. The only issue I had was the long walkway from the lobby to the lift to my room - other than that, I'd definitely come back!

location is good. although the decoration of the lobby is very fancy and nice, the check in time really pissed me off. Me and my friend arrived at 4.30pm and after we PAID our stay, the receptionist told us we need to wait one more hour for the room to be ready !

seriously !? a hotel that will be ready around 5pm to check in ? and check out time is still as usual, which means we lose we time staying in the room and need to wait with huge luggage at the lobby for an hour. The main thing is THEY CHARGED US FIRST, and then told us we need to wait (with no apology like we should wait coz we paid)

Room is spacious, but its NOT in the main building. I guess its a second building which at the time is still under renovation. So the walkway towards our room is long and creepy, like walking in a construction tunnel. While our friends stayed at the main building, its really not convenient. BTW we paid same amount.

Room Tip: ask to stay in the main building. otherwise its a long walk.
