“Good location and service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I went to Bangkok in January 2013 and stayed at two different hotels but i preferred this one to the other because of its location, service and value for money. This place is in Silom area and very close to subway (MRT) and sky train (BTS) (between 5 to 7 minute walk). Shopping malls, restaurants, bars, street foods, 7-11, etc. are within walking distance so it doesn't bother me when the hotel doesn't have a restaurant. The staff are very nice and friendly and they are always available for questions with friendly smile. My room is also very clean, quiet and spacious but you should bring your own toothpaste and toothbrush because they are not available in most hotels in Bangkok.

Tips for those who fly with Airasia: From Don Mueang Airport, take bus 510 in front of the arrival hall to Mo Chit Station (BTS) or Chaktuchak Park Station (MRT) and transfer to MRT and get off at Silom Station (or Sala Daeng station if you take BTS). Then walk towards Silom Complex for about 7 minutes and you will see Bangkok bank on the left. The hotel is behind the bank. I paid 17 baht for the bus and 40 baht for subway from Don Mueang airport to the hotel and it took about 1 to 1.5 hours. The taxi would cost about 300 - 400 baht but i'm not sure if it is faster because of the traffic.

Found this gem of a place in central Bangkok, very very near to Chong Nonsi BTS and Saladaeng BTS. Mind you, this is an apartment, not a hotel. No swimming pool, no gym, no coffee house, no bar nor room service. I decided on this over Glow Residences nearly due to location and price. Being a regular traveller to Bangkok, I appreciate a very nice homely feel. Its nested in between Silom commercial and Sathorn residential areas. Plenty of lovely cheap food around there, however westerners may beg to differ on this as they may avoid local food for their own reasons. There's a nice pork noodle shop just next door and Soi Phiphat 2 market behind Bangkok Bank HQ on working days. The lady at front desk in the day does not speak much English. Best time to phone the hotel is after 10pm local thai time where there's a young man with long hair who could speak good English and occasionally a pretty young lady that comes in the afternoon. The staff however will always try their best to be friendly so patience should be practiced when it comes to communication problems. The place may not be easy to locate at first but if you're coming from Silom Road, drive past Silom Serene Hotel on the left and its on the right after 7-Eleven. They also manage the property next door called Phipat House. They only accept cash, no credit cards. The rooms is really spacious as I've posted many photos of it. Very clean and well managed. Its full in room facilities with free wifi. Just that they don't provide tissues in the room, just toilet paper. No complaints about this. They even had a nice send off when we left on Christmas Day when we dragged our luggages to the BTS station to transit to Airport Express Link. This is one property I will definitely return to.

Room Tip: Any room is good. It has large windows and even the bathroom have windows to hang your hand-washed l...

My friend and I stayed there for our 2nd time in Bangkok and really liked it!

+:
- Clean & spacious room
- super comfy bed
- a big shower
- pretty central
- close to the metro and the night market
- Very friendly staff
- close to a breakfast café

- : The taxi had a hard time finding it the first time as it is located in a smaller street, but it depends on how well the driver knows the city I guess.

Cute. Clean. Central.
Good value for money. Rooms are simple yet modern and inviting.
Large windows offer nice natural light. Ideal Silom location - right behind Bangkok Bank building.
Good value for money in this price range.

First of all it would have been nice to write the name of accomodation in english as well in front of the location as it would have been lot easier to find the place. Even the taxi driver had to guess to find the place. Moreover since location is inside the streets it would be nice to put up some sort of sign board. The lady recepsionist at the front desk does not speak english at all. The male recepsionist during evening understands a bit and helped us with printing some documents easily which the lady was unable to do. On the plus side place is comfortable, clean and affordable . Thats just about it. Location is also OK nothing special about it except patapong market nearby. But if you intend to shop patapong is still not the place.

This is not a hotel to stay if you want all your meals sitting in and want all comforts. Baan Silom is clean, modern and bang in the middle of the Silom area. If you are the kinds who wants to explore the nooks and crannies of Bangkok, then this is your base.

Located in a street right off the busy marketplace and the famous street market that springs up every night; the hotel makes for a good base to do all the exploring around the city. Location is the key, it is close to the metro station Sala Daeng which connects you to the main railway station Huan Long Pong if you want to visit other cities like Ayuthaya.

There are several eating places and massage places along the streets to keep one occupied.
Baan Silom is a boutique hotel, and doesn't serve any food, which is okay as the numerous street food stalls in Bangkok will keep you satiated. It is clean, with very good-sized rooms and people with smiling friendly faces (Their english skills might not be great, but it did not dampen our stay in any way)..

Room Tip: All rooms face the front (I think) which does nt make a difference. Though, the hotel has a large ou...

Always good to have options in different areas of a city..
This little hotel I discovered by chance and was pleasantly surprised.
If you want 5* then this is NOT the place for you, if you want comfortable, clean, affordable accom in a city centre then you can't go wrong with Baan Silom.
As stated in other reviews, location is great for Patpong Night Bazar and all that goes with it. But also 5 min walk to Lumpini park which is a great place to relax and forget you are in a bustling metropolis. The main train station is just 3 stops on the MRT and Siam is also just a hop and a skip away, alternatively you can head in the other direction a couple stops and you are on the river at the ferry pier...
The hotel is located up a small soi but never felt threatening or dangerous. Just around the corner, also on soi 3 there is a brilliant food street which caters to the local office workers, proper food at proper prices and some very good coffee shops too.
Overall, a top place to use as a base when touring the city.
