Fantastic service: you just think of something and several people are already doing it. All the staff are really attentive, polite & friendly. Rooms are spacious with big bathrooms: with shower, 2 sinks and a bath. Wi-fi was a bit of a turn-off: it was priced at 600THB (20$) per day and worked only near the door. Everywhere else in...

Been back in the Oriental, for the second time in 2 Months. The Charme and service is just outstanding, hardly any fault apart you still get charged for the Wi-Fi and on Saturday the Service at the Patio Restaurant was a bit slow.

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
