“Stylish hotel, lovely staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Siam@Siam for three nights in February and would rate it as one of the top hotels we have ever stayed in.

To be honest, I hate pretentiousness. That’s why after reading some of the reviews prior to our trip, I was a bit wary of the whole “Design” thing (not to mention of a restaurant called “Partyhouse One”…) I needn’t have worried. The “design” is absolutely stunning – yes, it is all concrete and wood and glass and bronze but all the colours and materials beautifully and consistently complement each other and actually give the place a very warm feel. True, it might not be to everybody’s taste – if you prefer Victorian country houses with plush carpets, velour curtains and frilly lampshades, the Siam@Siam might not be for you. But if you like clean modern lines, earthy tones and the odd expressionist touch, this is a truly lovely - and unusual - place to stay.

Our room preferences made by email beforehand were completely honoured and our room was on the 21st floor overlooking the National Stadium. Having read the reviews, we were also surprised how bright the room and bathroom were (you can open some glass panels separating the bathroom from the bedroom and let in extra natural light that way).

Staff were absolutely lovely – always polite and helpful without anybody being overbearing or trying to force anything on us that we hadn’t asked for. I am not quite sure how some reviewers can complain about staff members being “impolite” or “insincerely polite” (which one is it now?!?) In our experience, everybody whose eye we met would smile and say hello, anything we asked for was provided within minutes, room maintenance was immaculate and service in both restaurants (Partyhouse One and the Rooftop restaurant) excellent. The breakfast buffet was substantial and of good quality.

As for restaurant prices, yes, of course they are substantially above the Thai average but then you know that when you opt to eat in your hotel rather than venture out and find a more reasonable local place. We ate at Partyhouse One once and found that there were a range of dishes (pasta, noodles, rice dishes) available at under 600 Baht. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere but that night, we had simply opted for convenience. Upstairs you do pay for the view (the veal pasta I had was delicious but the size was that of a starter and for the price you would have been forgiven for thinking it should have been fillet steak) so it might make sense to eat downstairs and then just go for a drink in the rooftop restaurant afterwards.

The infinity pool certainly is innovative and the view breathtaking although the sundeck has a bit of a confined feel to it. Of course, the beauty of overlooking the National Stadium means that you get to watch football games for free! We were there for the university final and got to watch rehearsals for the opening ceremony and half-time entertainment the night before (yes, quite noisy but there was nothing the hotel could have done about it). We were, however, amazed by how peaceful and friendly match day was – supporters of the two teams (in pink and yellow – can’t remember who won) just mingled and celebrated together all day – no shouting, jeering, abuse or anything else we are so accustomed to in the Premier League every weekend!

Much has been said about the great location (next door to the Skytrain and all the main shopping malls). While shopping isn’t so important to us, we found that the Siam@Siam’s central location meant that we were picked up last and dropped off first on any tours we had booked (Loy Nava cruise, Ayutthaya Grand Pearl excursion) – rather than having to spend time in a minivan driving round Bangkok picking up other guests!

In all, we would thoroughly recommend a stay at this hotel and would make it our first choice if we were to stay in Bangkok again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We loved this hotel. It had a bit of a funky but rustic feel. The rooms were decorated with wood and concrete. Sounds odd, but they looked really cool. The air con worked well, beds were comfortable. The breakfast had a great choice of food and always looked fresh. We had dinner there once and it did not disappoint. Lunch (satays were a great hit!) by the pool and not to forget the cocktails. Pool area had a great view over the city. Plenty of sunloungers, but get there too late in the afternoon and you might miss out. the rooftoop bar had great night views of the city.Just down the street is a Tesco (supermarket) where you could stock up on drinks etc, plus it has a food court and coffe shop, icecream shop . It is also in walkin distance to the three big shopping centres. All the staff we encountered were friendly and always happy to help. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: choose a deluxe with king bed!

I honestly couldn't fault this hotel. I read up on many of the reviews on here before we went to Thailand in April 2011. The good and the bad reviews. I didnt want to let the bad reviews get to me so when it was time to head on holiday, i went with an open mind regarding the hotel and what to expect. I truely dont have anything bad to say about the staff and hotel at Siam@Siam. They were lovely people, a very nice modern contemporary hotel in the perfect location. Our check in was smooth, our room was spacious, nice and always clean and our beds and pillows were comfortable, The buffet breakfast each morning was delicious, although, the coffee wasnt going down well with me, so i just stuck with the fresh juices. The skybar was overpriced and we chose not to eat up there but do yourselves a favor and go up there to check out the lovely views of bangkok and take some pics. Its very nice.
The pool and outdoor lounge area is very modern and nice. You also get a great view of National Stadium from the pool area and if you're lucky like we were while swimming in the pool, you may actually get to see the football team train from there :)

Siam@Siam is only minutes away from the Skytrain. About a 5min walk to MBK and not far from the Jim Thompson house. There is a great massage place just minutes away from the hotel and if you are after a cheap and good feed, head to Tesco Lotus which too is only minutes by walk. Tesco have some cafes and restaurants inside that cook some amazing local cuisine. We didnt actually see any tourists in these cafes/restaurants while we were there but im sure that many have been in there. Most of the menus are written in Thai but do have pictures beside the word so you know what you are ordering.

The only one thing if i had to fault anything and this really didnt even bother us but it may others, was that one of the doormen kept trying to get us to go to his "Friends workplace" to buy some "Quality Gems" which we did not and we told him we were not interested, he left us alone after the 3rd day, lol.

All in all, a lovely modern hotel in the perfcet location.

We stayed at Siam@Siam for 2 nights to help us break up the jetlag on our way back from a long trip in Europe to Australia. To us, our stay felt more like a resort than a city hotel - and we left so relaxed and refreshed! The infinity pool on level 11 is absolutely stunning, and to my limited knowledge one of a kind. We spent much of our time in the pool and also the steam room & jacuzzi on level 10. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and includes free wifi. The design of the rooms and the hotel in general has an "industrial" feel about it with lots of polished concrete, bold colours and intersting variety of textures, giving it a very fresh, modern and unique hotel experience - for us a welcome change from the stale, "old world" of Europe. Those who insist on neutral tones and a more conventional styling may not appreciate it though, but I dare say the "young at heart" will love it. The hotel was well located in the heart of the city, close to a number of shopping malls, food options and the Skytrain. There was a fantastic spread for breakfast, with chefs on hand to cook eggs to order, tropical fruits, hot American style options, European colds meats & pastries as well as an Asian selection. Between the fantastic breakfast spread and the humidity of Bangkok, we didn't feel like lunch, which is a shame because we wanted to sample much more of the local Thai food! Just make sure you give yourself enough time before breakfast finishes. And despite the relative high cost (for Bangkok) and our intentions to eat elsewhere, we could not resist the seafood buffet on the first night of our stay. The service was usually exceptional, such as when the bell captain personally got change for our driver who didn't have change, but perhaps on two occasions during our stay a minor matter would get "lost in translation". I am honestly a little surprised that Siam@Siam only ranks #79 on Trip Advisor at the time of writing ... while I would dearly love to stay here again, the curious part of me would like to see some of the other 78 supposedly better properties in Bangkok if this is the standard! To date, this is our favourite 4 star hotel we have had the opportunity to experience anywhere in the world.

5 days in Bangkok at Siam@Siam.
We really liked this hotel. Stayed in a business room at 24 floor. The executive lounge had coffee and tea all day. Canape` and free drinks between 18.00 and 20.00. Loved that.
The restaurant at the roof had very good food. Good service and nice staff.
Very satisfied with our stay. rooms were also very good.
Thank you Mr. Pongsak Goskul for all help.
See you next time we visit Bangkok.

My gf and I have stayed for 4 nights march 2012. When we first stepped in, we don't know where to go and I thought the concierge is the lobby, and the front desk gal told me I have to go level L and that we have to take a lift with a super bad attitude! My excitement of the hotel went straight down for all the good overrated reviews. Rooms is nice and comfort for me, location is excellent , skyroof is over charged.. Couple dinner with 1 side dish , 2 main dishes and 2 glass of wine bring up to 5000 baht!? Ridiculous ! And after having meal a few nights I found a poster stating every 1500baht you spent you entitled to have some discount voucher but when I go ask the staff about it they say they don't know!! Damn !! Last thing is the entrance service is extremely lousy , never once I fail to open the door myself whenever I'm in or out of the hotel, they really dont care , unless they change their customer services if not there is no reason going back there again with the price for a average 5 star hotel with better services
