Salil hotel was a last minuted choice for us after arriving in Bangkok and being very disappointed with our first choice at "72 Ekamai".
After staying for one night at Salil we were hooked and booked the rest of our first of five weeks in Thailand there. After returning from Samui we also plan to return as we found the hotel extremely good value and well designed for a hotel of it's size.
The rooms are not large but are very clean and well designed and include extra features such as DVD player, bath tub and balcony which really add a nice touch to this small property of only 40 rooms. The staff offer very good service and are very helpful and the restaurant where breakfast is served daily is quiet and serve a basic menu but is quite adequate for the price.
The hotel offers a Tuk Tuk to Thonglor station which is only a 5 minute walk away and the Soi Thonglor where many good restaurants and shopping is located is also only a few minutes away.
The hotel is located at the end of a small soi (lane) so does not have any passing traffic at all which is great and helps to create a tranquil environment with the only noise sometimes coming from the neigbors in other rooms as the walls are a little thin. (I recommend to book a room at the far end of the building and you won't have as much noise). The housekeeping staff do an amazing job in this hotel and every day you can return from the hot steamy Bangkok streets to a clean room and bathroom. Another bonus is aircon is quiet and works very well and also plenty of water pressure and decent lighting throughout the room.
Have to give this hotel a 4.5 out of 5 especially considering it is small and staff are mostly new.... well done Salil, we'll be back!!!
Note: book on Hotelclub.com for 4 nights and you will receive one night free. this brought our rate per night down to THB 1200 which is less than US$37, great value for a clean, comfortable, convenient and cosy hotel!
