Our 4D3N stay in Bangkok was at Siri Sathorn which Sister booked a Two-Bedroom Suite through Agoda. Our first choice for Bangkok was Ascott Sathorn Bangkok as we preferred serviced apartment over hotel room since there were three of us.
Both Sister and Mom had stayed in Ascott Sathorn Bangkok on their previous trip two years ago. However, Sister later found out that Siri Sathorn offered a much cheaper deal for a two bedrooms apartment. Without further ado, let’s get started with the review!
Upon entering our Two-Bedroom Suite, this was the view which greeted us first. Across the hallway is the smaller bedroom of twin beds. The kitchen is located on the right hand side upon entering the suite.
The kitchen was adequately equipped with basic necessities like microwave, fridge, electric kettle and even a toaster. Dish washing liquid was provided. The cabinets and drawers were fully stocked with bowls, plates, cooking and eating utensils. However, it was weird that kitchen scissor wasn’t in the list. Instant coffees, tea bags and drinking water were replenished on daily basis.
There was no laundry washing in the suite but located on the second floor of the hotel. You’ll need to pay ฿70 in exchange for a token. Token exchange is available at the restaurant located on the same floor. You do not need to put in laundry powder or conditioner as they were provided in the washing machine.
As mentioned above, the smaller guest room came furnished with two single bed and a huge wardrobe. The flooring around the beds are carpeted. The guest room doesn’t come with an ensuite bathroom but one located outside the room. It was smaller in size than the one from the master bedroom but adequate. The shower cubicle was tiny in my opinion but fits a petite person like Mom just fine.
This is the living room cum dining area. It is spacious and stretches quite long. However, there was a pillar at the end of the stretch and they built a ledge by the window with sofa cushioning. If you do not mind the heat during the day, perhaps a short nap by the ledge in the afternoon? They even have a large shoe cabinet next to the dining table.
Complimentary fruit platter which was already on the dining table when we first entered the suite. Mom was curious as to why they placed the apples facing down. She later found out that the apples had browned on the top. Hence, the housekeepers placed them upside down to cover the browned area.
This was the master bedroom and it came with an ensuite bathroom. Both Sister and I occupied the master bedroom while Mom occupied the guest room. LOL! I was surprised that the bedside stands didn’t come with electrical switch. The mattress here was a lot more comfortable than the one we had at Khaoyai Terrazzo. The mattress at the bottom was a hard one but they put a topper atop the mattress.
The ensuite bathroom for the master bedroom was a lot spacious than the guest bathroom. Both Sister and I loved that it came with two sinks and a bathtub. I liked that the bathroom came with quite a few spots where we can hang our laundry while showering. Some hotels provide limited space for laundry while showering. Power shower was strong in my opinion.
Verdict: We were satisfied with our 4D3N stay with Siri Sathorn while in Bangkok. The hotel is conveniently located in Silom area. The nearest BTS Station and Silom Complex are located within walking distance of about 10 to 15 minutes (depending on how fast you walk). You’ll find a few eateries and even a food market (during the day) along the way to Silom Complex. Patpong Night Market is also located within walking distance.
7-Eleven is extremely common in Thailand. You’ll find at least three of them nearby the hotel. If you’re craving for Japanese cuisine, there’s a Japanese restaurant located across the hotel. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant though. We intended to try out the restaurant on our last night in Bangkok but decided not to when we saw that the restaurant was pretty empty. I would suggest Patpong Night Market for Japanese cuisine as there are many to choose from!
Taxi fare from the hotel to Suvarnabhumi Airport costs ฿500 for a saloon car and ฿600 for a Toyota Innova. As there were only the three of us with two luggage, we opted the former. You can book with the hotel receptionist on the day before departure and they would arrange taxi service at the time you need it. It’s more pricey to go by Grab last we checked. We thought Grab would be cheaper but it turned out that otherwise.
Room rate was S$567.22 inclusive of service charge and VAT for three nights stay. I would say it was an affordable stay given the location and easy accessibility to food areas and BTS Station.
