This review is late because of Trip rules that it cannot be reviewed for some time after travel even though have stayed at the same hotel twice at different times on the same trip !!!!!
We started our trip to Cambodia / Vietnam in Bangkok after flying in from London to Hong Kong and then on to Bang kok ( if you want to know why this route please ask ) So I chose the Furama because of its reviews ( some negative but I make up my own mind ) and value for money so this review was for the end of our trip and because of this we had been up graded to a better room it was the same size as the one before but this time had an all round glass bathroom and toilet not to our liking as a mature couple but very nice to some people,Again no time to visit MBK shopping mall but had time to visit the roof top pool bar with lovely views of Bangkok skyline,The drinks in the bar were not cheap £10.00 ( $15 ) for 4 halves,This time had time to visit Pat Pong night market what some deals DVD clothes etc etc in Tuk Tuk dont pay any more than £2.00 ( $4 ) didnt have time to go to bars etc but found 7/11 shop across the road and a mini mart near to hotel great for a few beers etc for the room so this with room service for a quick snack was all that was needed.Again next day b/fast was as usual substantial and catering for all nationalaties and choice .Taxi from airport and return 500 Baht £10.00 ( $ 15.00) this fare includes express way so you have to negociate the price and to include expressway or not

it was a very well maintained hotel. I had booked a superior plus room. it was a totally new room. The rooms above 11th floor are totally new. Rooms below 10th floor are not so good. hotel is in centre of city and just at walking distance from skytrain station Cilla nong. I got the room at just 1100 bhats/night. They have a roof top swimming pool which gives a nice view of city.

Room Tip: ask for superior plus room.

Very friendly staff, the porters can tell you exactly which bus to take. Large rooms, the bathroom could be freshed up a bit. Great breakfast. Fitness ans sauna available for the hotel guests for free. Walking distance from Patpong and the night market (more an evening market). Nice skyline of Bangkok from the roof top of the hotel at night. There is Tops supermarket at Sala Daeng in the mall.
The neighbourhood is calm, there is a bus stop just in front of the hotel.
Silom (where this hotel is located) misses the warm ambient of Khao San Road and there's nothing to do in the evening. Laundry, transport, super market etc. in Silom are much more expensive than in Khao San area. There is a very good Indian restaurant very near to the hotel: Dubai at the opposite side of the street.

- Bus to Siam Square (MBK, Siam Paragon etc.) and Khao San Road : bus 15 at the other side of the street in front of the Pullman hotel.
- Bus to Chatuchack weekend market and Chitlom: bus 77 at the other side of the street in front of the Pullman hotel.
- Bus to Chinatown: bus 15, 77, 115 just in front of the hotel and get off at the Robinson mall. There switch to bus 1 at the Robinson side of the street.
- Bus to watertaxi (Chao Praya express orange flag): bus 15, 77, 115 and get off at the Robinson mall. Follow the street a bit further past Robinson and turn to the right to go to the pier.

The people are friendly, the rooms clean and air conditioned (although the hall is not). There is a swimming pool and bar on the roof open until 8 pm. The food here is edible but not that great. However you are in an area with a lot of restaurants and street food. Also, there is a laundry next door that is a lot cheaper than the hotel prices. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the sky train and the Patpong Night market. You can get here from the airport cheaply with public transportation using the sky train (3 changes) or a taxi is only about $30 from the airport.

Room Tip: It is being renovated. The newer rooms seem to be on the upper floors. The older rooms are fine, jus...

A good hotel- safe and well run with good breakfast. Good value for money and easy location near popular areas and the sky train. Pool on roof a nice touch. Big let down are the rooms.., although clean and safe, they desperately need upgrading ... However, if you want value, location and intend to spend most of your time sight- seeing- I would consider it. Stayed here 5 times...

Enjoy BKK!

Nice place to stay for few nights (we stayed there 6). Top floor bar and swimming pool with great view. Large rooms and bathroom. Very polite stuff. the only small issue is that you can't open the balcony door -due to security
