“Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Very nice hotel in center of Silom, 10 min walk to Patpong night market, 5 min drive to Central world shopping, lots of restaurants, shopping surround it. Super store right beside the hotel. Currency exchange right opposite the hotel. Value for money stay. Rooms are very big in size and comfortable. Only draw back is the translucent window separating living area & the bathroom, unless your'e a couple in love.

Stayed here for 5 nights on first arriving to Thailand. Room was great, spacious and clean. The staff was very polite and helpful, and the concierge spoke good English. They let us check in 3 hours early which was a godsend after 23 hours of travelling.
The location was also great, with a skytrain station only 6 minutes walk away. The river taxi station was also walkable, about 20 minutes, although I'd recommend a cab or tuk tuk. The area had some decent restaurants and lots of 7/11s for the basics. Great massage parlor/bar/laundry/restaurant place right next door too (relax time).
The Furama also had one of the best breakfast buffets I'd ever seen, included in the room price. We ate something different every morning, and it was all delicious. The rooftop pool and bar were also nice and offered some good views of the city.

We stayed in the Furama in April this year as part of a tour group. The staff are very attentive and helpful although some do not have a good grasp of English which does make communication hard sometimes. Check in at reception was quick and easy. The lift is glassed so you can see out into the street but it is extremely hot and uncomfortable, take the inside lift. We were given a deluxe room on the 19th floor, the view was okay but not fantastic, the room however was lovely. Huge room with big double bed and a very nice big, clean bathroom. The bathroom was glassed in but if privacy is needed there are blinds! The linen was clean, the bed comfy and good pillows. The air con worked very well and there was a small fridge, tv and kettle. Breakfast was really good, very big selection. The skytrain was close to go to the shopping malls and there is a very good Irish pub up the road called Jamieson's which served good meals. All in all a good, clean hotel close to public transport, shops etc. I must mention the spa straight across the road a little to your left, best foot massage I have had. Also the roof top pool has fantastic views

I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2014. I have stayed here on several occasions and have always been pleased with the hospitality here. In the past i have stayed in a Deluxe Room and i have alwasy been impressed with these rooms. On this stay, i had booked a Superior Room. Whilst the size of the room is on par with the Deluxe Room, the decor and fit out of the room is a little less impressive. Overall the room is still spacious, comfortable and clean and i would reccomend it, but i think you will find that paying that little bit extra for a Deluxe Room will make the stay more pleasurable. The buffet breakfast is awesome and you will find everything from Asian to Western Inspired Foods. This is great for westerners as it isnt always easy to find western foods early in the morning in Bangkok. The staff are friendly and only too happy to help out. The hotel is only a short walk away from the night markets and the nightlife of Silom. The rooftop pool is very refreshing and the view from up there is awesome.
I highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Choose a Deluxe Room over a Superior room here. Only a small price difference

Found this hotel looks lovely from the outside however even though we had a large room the wall paper was coming off in sections & a terrible stale smoke always lingered in the room so think at some stage it used to be a smokers room. The bathroom was awkward with shower curtain not being long enough so water would be all over the floor when finished. Location was good & i think thats what you pay for not the quality.

Visited Bangkok 10 May 2014 - 13 May 2014 and stayed at Furama Silom, Deluxe Room.

We booked our room through Expedia.com at a very good rate with breakfast included. On the day of arrival, we were given a room with twin beds, but my booking was for a king sized bed. The staff assured us that they will change for us a room with king sized bed on the next day as none was available on our arrival day. Apart from the hassle of unpacking and re-packing, the matter was solved pretty fast.

Their deluxe room was exactly like advertised. Very spacious room with a working desk and sofa. The bathroom was unique with the see through glass - suitable a romantic moment. If you need privacy, just put down the roller blinds. Beds are comfy. Sheets and towels are clean. Toiletries provided. There is hairdryer, bathrobes and iron in the room as well.

Wifi signal ok, but gotta re-login every morning. Our rooms are towards the end of the corridor and still manage to get the signals.

TV channels are a little boring. It would be nice to have more international channel for movies. Most channels are in Thai, so understanding the show is a bit hard. Anyway, we hardly have time for TV so it's not much of a problem.

Breakfast spread was good, with slight changes to some dishes daily so you will not get bored of the food. Breakfast served from 6:00AM to 10:00AM. The crowd usually comes around 9:00AM, so be there early if you prefer a quiet breakfast.

There's a sky bar by the pool at the highest floor. We went up to have a look. Prices are reasonable, but seems like it closes early, by 10:00PM. No fun, if you plan to stay up late and enjoy the night view. Pool is small, water looks clear but tiles colour looks dirty.

The hotel is located within walking distance to Chong Nongsi BTS station. It's only 5 minutes walk. With the BTS, you can basically go to most tourists attractions! One station away is Sala Daeng, where all the shops and Patpong night market are. You may also walk there. Taxis are abundant outside of hotel, but be prepared to negotiate.

Overall nice stay. Staffs are very friendly and always greet you.
