“A Reason to Travel”
Reviewed 11 April 2011

Trotting along the globe, you will occasionally run into the ugly side of a culture. Things will undoubtably go wrong and trips hardly ever go exactly as planned. That's just part of travelling. What makes it all worth while are those rare moments that offer an true insight into a culture, the moments that demonstrate the generosity and decency of people abroad. Those are the moments you take with you to cherish as memories, to overshadow the difficult times one must endure to travel. My wife and I had such a moment at Baan Silom Soi 3.

We had been travelling in Thailand for 5 weeks, and at both ends of the trip we stayed at Baan Silom Soi 3. The day before we left, we were robbed in a crowded fruit market. Someone slit my wife's bag and made off with her wallet without us realizing anything had happened. The thief didn't get much cash, but we had no way to withdraw more money because my ATM card was in the wallet. We still had credit cards, but we couldn't pay for a taxi to the airport the next day with credit cards.

The people at Baan Silom Soi 3 were so helpful. Not only did they finish our laundry services without charging us, but they offered to personally drive us to the airport in the morning. So, in the morning we hopped in a truck with this kind Thai family and drove over an hour to the airport. It turned out that a nice-looking woman named Veena runs the hotel with her nephew, who works the front desk with a perfect American accent. Veena's brother and sister-in-law were in town from Northern Thailand, and, together with Veena, all 5 of us drove to the airport together. They all spoke English well, and we spoke about family, travelling, and food.

Before we reached the airport, we exchanged email addresses and promised to keep in touch. They also forced us to take the equivalent of 20 USD so that we could eat something in the airport. In the last hour of our trip, we accomplished something that we hadn't in Ko Phi Phi, Koh Samui, and all the other tourists spots. In that last hour, we really got to know these people, and their generosity touched us. My wife and I were married two weeks after getting back from Thailand, and we sent wedding pictures in a card to Veena and her family to thank them.

Besides for being run by amazing, generous people, this hotel was by far the best value for any hotel that we found on our trip, and we stayed in several in Bangkok. It is very clean, and it offers fast, reliable WiFi in all the rooms. I can't say enough about this hotel, and I'm truly thankful that we stayed there. I would most definitely recommend it to any traveler going to Bangkok.

Good location, i like those hawkers and foods stalls neighborhood, i am enjoy shopping the beside hawkers streets, i saw a lots local peoples shop there, not just tourism. We can get a honest price there not worry to be cheap there. Very convenience and nice place. Beside the is near the BTS train, you also easy can get taxi in front of Baan Silom soi 3. Great free high speed wi-fi serivce.

Good location off Silom Rd, big room, lower floors quiet, upper floor somewhat noisy ever with windows shut (both were to the back). Free hi-speed internet. Western-style breakfast can be eaten in another hotel in the same street for 250 baht p.p.

The little safe wasn't working well (kept forgetting numbers) and should be screwed against the wall.

Great location if you would like to see the whole city but if you are only interested in the tourist areas such as the grand palace then it may be too far as there are no direct transport links (skytrain, metro) between the two. The skytrain stop is only 5 mins walk away however it only heads north and east ( grand palace and Chinatown being towards the west). Reception/security guard was very nice and tried to be as helpful as possible but spoke little to no English.
The room was big and clean with a full size fridge and freezer with a large bathroom and big shower.
Very good for £15 a night and would book if I ever return to Bangkok .

The staff of this nice and small hotel was very friendly. We stayed 4 nights in the Deluxe room and the room was spacious with a big bed, nice and quiet. The location from this hotel is close to BTS (skytrain) Chong Nonsi and the night market and bars in Patpong. A good breakfast buffet is possible in the hotel at the other side of the street for 225 bath a person.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Baan Silom Soi 3. The Deluxe room was pleasant and comfortable, while the bathroom was very spacious. The Manager was well spoken and very helpful, and the staff friendly and always with a smile.
Location is great, just 5 mins to BTS Sala Daeng, and 10 mins to MRT Silom. No need to worry about food, plenty to choose from hawker fare to fast food.
Only two very minor issues: no free WiFi and not many TV channels. But these can be easily overlooked :)
All in all, a great place to rest your head.
