Sofitel Silom, Bangkok

Introduction
Accommodation
Prices & Booking

Introduction

The main reason to choose this establishment is for the reasonable family prices and the views it offers.

The rooms start at the 12th floor, and all have good views, as no other skyscrapers are close enough in any direction to impede the view.
The night-time cityscape views from the city side of the hotel are particularly good. The room is located in Silom zone, which is not the best place in Bangkok to choose, but it doesn't take long to reach the evening hotposts in a taxi.
The hotel has a child-friendly pricing policy, allowing a free extra bed and breakfast for a child, which makes it attractive to families.
There are various restaurants here, of which the most renowned is the Chinese one.

The hotel's pool is a disappointment, as it is small, gets almost no sunshine and has only a few loungers around it. This is a shame in a hotel that offers such great prices to families. The high-floor wine bar, image below, sells wine at cost price.

 

Accommodation

Luxury

It is rather stretching the word luxury to use it to describe these rooms, but they are certainly comfortable and in immaculate condition.

The decor won't wow anybody, but won't upset anybody either.

Gleeming wooden floors lend class to a room that has an armchair but is too small for a sofa. These rooms are on the 12th to 26th floors.

Luxury Club

These are the same as the Luxury rooms, but with the following differences:
  • (a) they are located on the 27th to 35th floors
  • (b) they allow access to the Executive Club Lounge, where guests can drink as many beers and cocktails as they like between 5 and 7 pm.

If you like a drink and a high floor room, it is worth chosing the luxury Club room rather than the Luxury room, as the lounge is huge, spans both sides of the building and offers great views from comfortable sofas and armchairs in a stylish, trendy setting.

Usually, with most hotels, we don't recommend these club rooms, as they are not worth the extra money charged, but the club rooms here are worth paying extra for.

 

Suite 74 sqm

These are located on the 12th to the 35th floors.

An extra bed can easily be accommodated. The two sofas are each big enough for a children of different sizes, and can be made up as beds. So these rooms can accommodate a family of five, contact us with your childrens' ages and heights to check that you will all fit. These children all stay free of charge.

The two massive floor-to-ceiling windows in these units give great views.
