We arrived here straight from the airport and were immediately impressed with what we saw. However, no one came to help us with our luggage- yet there were 2 porters standing inside. In addition, reception demanded that we pay a £2000 deposit. When we explained that we have only just arrived they were not understanding in the slightest. We offered to pay after we had been to the cash machine. They were not happy with this and demanded dollars- to which we only had 50 on us. Considering I had already payed for the room and my card details were with them I thought this was too pushy! We were place on the 7th floor (a smoking floor) as this was the only room with a double left. They assure me it would not smell- it did, of course it did!!
The room was spotless and the bed very comfy. Breakfast was delicious- a huge variety! We also used the gym and the pool facilities. The restaurant food was average but well priced.
The hotels location is good as you can walk to the markets and restaurants, however at night it transforms into a nasty road. My partner and I did not feel safe. As soon as it gets dark, all sorts of people appear. I would pay more and be more central to silom.
