“Very modern”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

First appearance of the outside was poor, but walk through the front door into another world. We had a very spacious and extremely well appointed room on the 12 floor. Bathroom was glass walled and very spacious. Staff were great. The room was modern with a large clean bed. Shower and toilet also very clean. Great room and very well priced. Short walk to night markets and railway. Recommend a drink at the pool bar on dusk. Very good value. We got a special which included breakfast which was also excellent.

Room Tip: Room on the 12 floor was great, the door to the balcony didn't open but there really wasn't...

I have stayed here twice and highly recommend it. It has a fabulous sky bar and pool on the 20th floor. The rooms are spacious and have complimentary wifi. The breakfast is really good. Chong Nonsi Sky Train and Patpong are about 10 minutes walking distance away.

I stayed at The Furama Silom for nearly 2 months in March & April and have to say it really was like home from home. The staff could not have be more welcoming and made me feel so relaxed and well looked after. There are 2 staff members who are particular brilliant 'Nat' who is the duty Manager on the front desk and 'Son' the young F&B associate. Nat is truly wonderful and couldn't have made me feel more welcome, he goes above and beyond what he's paid for and if I was his GM, I would promote him (A true professional) & Son, a young kid but very astute, Friendly and intelligent always with a smile and 'good morning' greeting . I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and I will do when I return on Business in October 2014. I am actually excited knowing that I will be well looked after and feel as equally comfortable here as I would at home for a number of months. 1 negative, I think they should invest in a few more English/American Movie channels :-)

It's my 2nd experience with Furama Silom. Apart from the chinese cemetry that was beside the hotel (a little key to take note for superstitious travellers), the deluxe room which I believe was newly renovated. Really beautiful concept. However, I actually upgraded my room to deluxe from superior as the superior was horrible. The room was dim, stained sofa, not a build in wardrobe (the doors was spoilt anyway) and the whole room smells. The red carpet eventually add on to extra eeriness of the whole room. Corridors doesn't have centralised aircon. Really very warm. Would advised travellers to take their deluxe room for a much better experience. Just pay a little more for a totally different kind of comfort for accommodation. Staffs was friendly anyway. An additional bonus to it. Just take note of those taxi drivers outside of the hotel.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a much better accommodation. Would not advise their superior room.

Nestled in the business district by day/colorful, night life district by night of Bangkok, this hotel is well suited for going on foot to the main attractions in the city, or to taking the Skytrain. It’s a 15-minute walk to the Chao Praya river with its requisite temple visits.
The rooms are quite large compared with many places we have stayed in Thailand. We asked for a room with twin beds, and to our surprise ended up with two large double beds. The room was clean and suited our needs perfectly.
The buffet lunch (hotel quests get a discount) is extensive, and very good. We were surprised at the quality and ate far too much… the curry was fantastic! Tables and tables of Thai food, intermixed with a few Western dishes, are there for the taking. Breakfast was also good (wonderful coffee machine!).
There is a small rooftop deck with a swimming pool and bar (nice view at night).
Just outside the entrance massage parlors abound… $10. will get you a one-hour foot massage, topped off with a shoulder and neck massage.
If you’ve always wanted a pricey bag you could afford, the Patpong market is just a few blocks down the road, interspersed with a plethora of ‘specialty’ bars, pool halls, and live music venues with go go girls (it is aka the ‘knock offs and knockers’ part of town!) Around this same area is the fantastic open air Sky Bar on the 34th floor of the Lebua Hotel . Amazing view! Expensive drinks, but worth the ambiance and view. Not to be missed.
Another must visit is the MBK shopping center, also within walking distance. Six floors of goodies.
One caveat, unless one enjoys the experience of racing around in a tuk tuk, as we do… is the increasing, new approach by people wanting you to purchase items from businesses where they get a cut, which is prevalent around the Silom area. “Where are you going?... Oh, today is a holiday and the temples are closed…. But my friend here (an adjacent tuk tuk driver) will take you for only 25 baht (75 cents) to a place where you can get the best… come, come!” Knowing full well that it was not a holiday, we decided to go simply to ride a tuk tuk cheaply. Once at the shop, we walked in and out, and he offered to take us to the river to look around. It was exhilarating! And cheap. Then off we went to visit the temples. The next day we were heading to the MBK shopping mall, and a woman approached saying that MBK was opening only in the afternoon, because it was a Wednesday, but she knew a better place to shop. Also not true, as we knew, and continued on our way to the wide open MBK. Love the plays as they search for business! And on that note, Thai people are very generous to homeless and those in need who ask for money on the streets. We followed suit and gave change everywhere.

Room Tip: Go for the upper floors.

I stayed over for two days in April and was generally impressed. The rooms are large with an alright view, they are very modern although some corners, especially in the bathroom showed signs of dirt. Like another reviewer mentioned the AC is quite loud but the ambient noise was perfect for me, helps me sleep! Staff were friendly and very happy to help. The hotel offers room service, although I did not try was not priced too high.

The train station is within walking distance amongst other shops. It is neither in a very busy nor quiet area, but more leaning to quiet.

Although I had a decent stay and the hotel was all very pleasant, I feel the cost was a little too high for the quality/area that you get. It is however a very modern and pleasant hotel but personally I would look elsewhere for my next stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a high up room for decent view

We were well taken care of on arrival and smooth check-in process. Location was not too bad and quiet. Away from the busy part of the city. There is a Indian temple nearby and many Indian and Jain food restaurants available. About 5 to 10 mins walk to the train station and able to move around the whole city without any problems. Hotel was simply perfect and had a good spread of breakfast.
