“Clean, Comfortable, Convenient & Cosy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2010

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!

I stayed at Salil from 16-20 Dec 2009 with my gf. We initially chose a doube bed room but found the room too tiny, so we switched to a twin beds room which was much larger and more comfy.

The room is very neat and clean with wooden flooring. My only complaint is that the walls are pretty hollow and you can literally hear doors closing/opening and people talking in the common corridor.

There is a free tuk tuk to take you to and from the Thonglo BTS station and you can rent free DVDs although most of the DVDs are bootlegs (but quality is fine like originals).

Breakfast is only so-so with the usual cereal, toast, eggs, ham, bacon, etc... The cafe where breakfast is a very lovely place and resembles a Swedish kitchen-cum-glasshouse and sits about 6 tables only.

Sukhumvit Soi 38 is within walking distance and here you can find cheap delicious street hawker food like Pad Thai and mango sticky rice.

Overall, it's a lovely hotel in a quiet, serene neighborhood without the sleaze. Give it a try!

I stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights and found it to be pleasant and comfortable. The rooms are new and clean and a decent size for the price. Free wi-fi was good. Breakfast was small and so-so, but acceptable. The usual bacon, eggs, tea, coffee, cereal and a couple of asian dishes (fried rice or noodles, vegetables).

Another good thing is that it is a short 5 min walk to the Thonglor BTS station. The free hotel tuk-tuk will also drive you the station if you like. Very convenient, and because it is away from the main road, the hotel is also quiet.

Cons - not enough hot water, for some reason. Just luke warm at best, though that's a minor compliant for me. (it's hot in Bangkok anyway!)

I didn't make use of their concierge service for any tickets or trips so I can't comment on that, and am sorry some other travellers had bad experiences.

I really enjoyed my stay at Salil Hotel, but I rank POOR because of their concierge desk. Rooms were comfortable, clean and modern. Complimentary breakfast was delicious and the front desk/bell boy staff was very helpful. The greatest flaw was their concierge service. The women charged us up front almost $10,000 baht for transfers and tours, and nothing came through. We were left stranded at the airport and waiting often for taxis for tours that never came. I was furious and demanded a full refund which she provided, but what a waste of time to be tricked with lousy touring service.

The Thonglor/Sukhumvit neighborhood is NOT for tourists, however I loved being in a true neighborhood. It felt so authentic and the prices of food and clothes were so below the tourist trap areas, that I enjoyed being in my own nook of Bangkok. Look for the Sparkles Cupcake bakery. Delicious treats!

Salil hotel pros
PROS
- Smartly decorated hotel and rooms
- Rooms and bed are very clean
- Quiet
- 5 to 10 minute walk to BTS

CONS
- No hot water, room temperature showers at best
- The staff is polite but not helpful and totally inept
- The high speed Internet does not work with certain electronics
- Terrible location for tourists. You are far from all sights and the hotel is very difficult for taxis to find.
- The safe in the room is not bolted down, rendering it useless
- Very welcoming of sex tourists
- The rooms are tiny. Not a problem for me but some of you will be annoyed.
- Do not book anything through the tour desk at the hotel. You will be taken advantage of and possibly stolen from.  
- The breakfast is not good. Everything is cold. I'm not really sure why they sit the good over those buffet warmers if they're not going to turn them on

We stayed here for about 5 days, and it ran us about 1300 THB a night, which wasn't too bad. The hotel was in the process of installing an elevator, so there was a little bit of noise in the day time. Breakfast is horrible, for the most part everything was cold, being the fact that I wake up around 630 am and their cafe open at 630am.

The hotel overall is clean, the staff is okay, but can be a little bit more friendly. They do offer a tuk tuk ride to the Thong Lo BTS, which is nice.

Okay, now to the horror part of the hotel. After checking out, they claim that I made their sheet a little bit black of some sort of dirt, and they charged me 200 THB, and they claimed I drank an Ice Tea, which I never did, so they charge me for that as well. My plan was to return back to this hotel after going to Pattaya for a few days, but because of all the surprise charges, I will have to decline. I would not recommend this hotel to a friend, unless they like to eat cold breakfast and love surprises.
