In a city as vibrant as Bangkok, you’ll need a luxurious retreat to return to after your days (and nights) exploring the buzzing streets and lively markets. Housed in an impressive high-rise, the four-star Furama Silom offers an elegant, Thai-inspired space that’s designed to relax and rejuvenate, recharging you for another day of sightseeing in the city. The guest rooms here are spacious and comfortable, with elegant décor and plush bedding to ensure a perfect night’s rest. On the hotel’s 20th floor, high above the rush of the streets below, a pool and a lounge area await. Here, you can enjoy a nightcap over views over Bangkok’s twinkling skyline, while the reflections from the towering skyscrapers dance on the water’s surface. Excitement is never too far away, though, as an abundance of city life lies around the hotel; the famous Patpong Night Market is a short walk from your door, CentralWorld shopping plaza is just a few stops away and there are plenty of bars and clubs lining the streets of Silom.
The stylish Deluxe rooms feature plush king-sized beds and a warm color palette, creating an inviting retreat for you to kick back in. You’ll enjoy a gleaming glass-encased bathroom, with both a bathtub and a shower, as well as impressive views of the city from the large picture windows.
Located on the second floor of the hotel, Rama@Silom offers a diverse range of cuisine, from traditional Thai to international favorites. The lavish buffet breakfast is a must, and it’ll provide you with the energy you need for a busy day around the city. On the rooftop, next to the pool and the lounge area, grab some bar bites and creative cocktails from De Sky @ Furama Silom. You’ll enjoy panoramic views of Bangkok, and it’s the perfect spot for enjoying an expertly mixed cocktail from the bar.
There’s no time to be bored in Bangkok’s Silom – with traditional attractions, shopping, nightlife and no shortage of spas and wellness centers, there’s always something to do here. The Chong Nonsi BTS Skytrain Station is just a short walk from the hotel, and you can be whisked off to the city’s popular shopping havens, such as CentralWorld, MBK Shopping Centre and Siam Paragon, in mere minutes. You can also mingle with locals and sharpen your bargaining skills at the nearby Patpong Night Market, where you’ll find a plethora of souvenirs, bags, shoes and tasty street food. There’s even a Thai cooking school across the street, so you can take some of those recipes home with you.
How to Get There
Even the deluxe rooms are very average, the superior rooms either had peeling paint or cockroaches. The only OK thing is the breakfast. Rooms very dated. Very old fashioned aircon. Shower lukewarm. It's cheap but that's it...
Nice hotel with modern, clean, nice sized room. Buffet style restaurant, with a good choice of food. Rooftop bar overlooking Bangkok and a rooftop pool. Not far from the skyline train station, so easy to get to the Choapraya River.
For Bangkok I look for a hotel with good rooms, breakfast, and preferably a good pool Andy’s at a fair price. I think this is the best option for us in Silom.
The deluxe rooms here are excellent and from time to time they offer a free upgrade which makes for a special stay.
The breakfast is just passable. As per the previous review many dishes are just so so. Overcooked, oily, or watery dishes are a bit too common. I like a good bread and oat dishes. They have standard white bread and a second one that had a hint of whole meal and was stale. They have oatmeal and Bircher muesli which is good but too thin. Not much oats. The water they serve has a chemical taste. Bring your own or if you go Executive Club there is water in the fridge. Other aspects of breakfast such as salads and other staples are fine.
The gym has poor cardio equipment but good free weights.
The pool is just big enough for laps and has a fantastic outlook over Bangkok.
Overall it offers an excellent location for us, high standard rooms if deluxe or better, friendly staff, and though other aspects are not perfect it still represents a good deal.
