9 Best Hotels in Silom for Tourists | Worth the Price


The Silom area is the key business district of Bangkok, plus it has multiple nightlife venues, lively street food markets, and numerous exceptional restaurants. As a Thai, I visit Silom almost every week to dine in and order noodle soups and dumplings to take away.

As a “versatile” area, Silom is unarguably one of the most popular places to stay in Bangkok, especially for young adults.

With hundreds of accommodations available, not all Silom hotels are worth booking. Some charge a high price per night, but the rooms are not in good condition. Hence, I decided to write this article to pinpoint the best ones that offer value for money so that you can book the right hotel immediately without spending hours researching.

Best hotels in Silom Area should be in the eastern district.

Things You Should Know


Before booking any hotel in Silom, it is crucial to drill deep into its location. Some accommodations indeed charge meager room rates. However, they may be located in primarily dilapidated parts of Silom. You may end up staying in a lifeless, undesirable area, which can even be dangerous at night.

Best Areas (Subdistricts) to Stay in Silom

There are many sub-districts in the Silom area since the main road is 2.78 km long. These sub-districts are very different.

The eastern districts that are next to Lumpini Park are lively day round. This is because of the presence of various offices, street food markets, and nightlife venues (Patpong.)

Undoubtedly, most hotels are located in this area. Hence, it is the best choice for young adults to find accommodation in Silom.

The central districts around the Chong Nonsi station and the Hindu temple are also crowded since international firms and companies are in this area. Thousands of Thais also visit the Hindu temple and shop at street food markets.

Hence, the atmosphere there is lively. It is also more family-friendly than the eastern districts since there are fewer nightlife venues. The drawback is that a BTS Skytrain station may not be within walking distance of some hotels.

If you want to stay in this area, ensure your accommodation is not far from the station.

The western districts around the intersection of the Silom and Mahesak roads used to be more vibrant, with numerous shops opened by ex-pats, especially South Asians.

Unfortunately, this area suffers the most during the pandemic. Many shops went bankrupt and closed their doors. As of early 2023, this area is still under a slow recovery, which makes it not the best choice to stay in Silom.

Also, it would be more convenient to catch a taxi or Tuk Tuk to visit tourist attractions as a Skytrain station is far away.

Is Silom kid-friendly?

The Silom area is vast, so this may differ. Specifically, the central districts around the Chong Nonsi station are somewhat kid-friendly, while the eastern districts around the Patpong market are generally not.

Suppose you plan to visit Bangkok with your kids or the elderly. I would advise booking a hotel at Siam or Chaopraya Riverside instead, as they are much more family-friendly than the entire Silom area.

How to Get to Silom Hotels?

Located at the heart of Bangkok, Silom is accessible from the airport through many means. However, I recommend taking an airport taxi for most tourists.

Bangkok Taxis

The reason is that the Bangkok subway system has very limited escalators and elevators. If you have large suitcases, you would need to carry them up/downstairs on your own, which is not the experience you would be looking forward to.

Furthermore, Bangkok’s taxi rates are generally inexpensive, especially for families and groups. Taxi drivers always use the fare meter if you get in at the airport, so you have a much lower chance of getting scammed.

However, as of 2023, you may need to wait in line for airport taxis for an hour or so. This is because fewer taxis are in the capital due to the absence of tourists during the pandemic. 

Alternatively, you can contact your hotel in advance to schedule private transportation, so you do not have to wait. The only drawback is that most hotels charge significantly higher rates than airport taxis.

Suppose your hotel does not offer airport transfers or you do not want to wait an hour for a taxi, I suggest booking private transportation (vans) through Viator. This option is not cheap, but it can save you valuable hours in the city. Many Thais, including me, use this option to avoid frustration at the airport.

  • The hotel must receive primarily positive reviews from actual guests: The verified review score across all review sites must be above 80% (8/10 or 4/5). We also read those reviews and use such data to evaluate comprehensive service quality.
  • Prime Location: The hotel must be within walking distance from BTS/MRT stations, a network of restaurants, or entertainment venues.
  • The hotel must provide good amenities and facilities that align with its official ratings (stars).
  • Free Wi-Fi must be available for guests.
  • Overall, the hotel must offer excellent value for money.
  • The hotel must have a fully-functional website and social media for guests to contact if needed.
  • If I had a chance to stay at the hotel, my personal experience must be positive.
