Triple Two Silom Review

Silom - Bangkok

TRIPLE TWO SILOM REVIEW

Nearing the middle of Silom Road, Triple Two is the sister hotel of the adjoining Narai. Being the younger of the two, and with its eclectic design comprising abstract and pop art style prints, the hotel is best described as the ‘cooler sibling,’. You get the feeling that this may have been Andy Warhol’s sort of hang-out, with the madness of Patpong and the elegance of the Chao Phraya River both equidistant from the hotel.

The building's exterior doesn’t quite do it justice but, once inside, the bold combination of colour and geometrical design conveys the essence of a quintessential boutique-style hotel. Complemented by the warm smiles and genuine interest of the staff – the welcome drink was certainly an added bonus!

 


What’s it like?

The hotel's interior is best described as eclectic, as no one theme dominates. Employing an intimate and cozy décor plan consisting of rich colours and contrasting textures, the Triple Two retains an Asian theme gently fused with a downtown New York feel. The outside tropical garden area is a pleasant location, below towering palm trees and lush greenery, to enjoy morning coffee and a complimentary newspaper.

A four-storey property, the business centre and internet access areas are well situated on the quieter first floor. Here, all guests are welcome to use the internet free of charge. The roof garden is a good spot to catch a few rays and the next-door Narai pool and fitness centre are shared with the Triple Two.

Where is it?

Situated in the commercial district of Bangkok, Silom Road runs adjacent to Sathorn – the city’s main business district. Visitors should keep in mind that the two busy thoroughfares create traffic congestion and to use the Chong Nonsi Skytrain (a complimentary shuttle runs each day from 10:00.) when heading for shopping grounds such as Siam or other areas of interest. Taking the Skytrain two stations to Saphan Taksin will drop you within walking distance of Central Pier.

Here, boats can be taken along the Chao Phraya River.

Silom is famous for Patpong; the heart of Bangkok’s infamous hostess scene and home to countless A-go-go bar. However, don’t assume this just to be a male stomping ground; female tourists and expatriates enjoy the area and dance and live-music venues are open to the early hours. Patpong's Night Market is also a great place to barter down some counterfeit classics. Fast-food joints, street vendors and international restaurants are also plentiful around this lively area. 

What are the rooms like?

With 75 guestrooms the hotel is boutique in nature, not just because of its size and chosen interior but for its intimate and personalised service. Comfortable and spacious, the rooms have a home-away-from-home feel. Like many other aspects of the hotel you feel that the comfort and convenience of guests is high up on the agenda, with the inclusion of complimentary internet, fruits and nuts.

Beds are comfortable and duvets soft, getting in was a lot easier than getting out, which is always a good sign! The walk-in wardrobe will go down well with the ladies; here you can also find an umbrella, dressing gowns and slippers. Bathrooms amenities are all fragrant, the body lotion in particular had a distinctive tinge to it and the shower gel was a great addition to the refreshing pressure shower. Contemporary and cosy interiors help to recreate the feeling of home. Featuring two types of rooms; Junior Suites measure in at 60 sqm and Deluxe Rooms are slightly smaller at 45 sqm.


 

Restaurants and Bars

The open-air Triple Two Bar is situated near the sidewalk, providing a good view of the street, great for a bit of people watching while enjoying a chilled drink or a spot of lunch. The inside, which can be accessed through the bar, is in a hip, modern brasserie style and serves a Vietnamese lunch buffet – a rarity in Bangkok. Dinner at the Triple Two Restaurant offers an exquisite buffet featuring Norwegian salmon, freshly-caught fish from the south-Surajthani province and various meats from the BBQ. The complimentary glass of wine for each diner is a nice addition to the whole experience.

Business Facilities

Triple Two markets itself primarily as an 'innovative and unique business-class hotel'. Featuring five fully-equipped meeting rooms and a state-of-the-art business centre, complemented by a secretarial service to ensure the smooth running of business affairs, one can easily see why.

Leisure Facilities

As mentioned, Triple Two shares a swimming pool and fitness centre with the next-door Narai but still it's advisable to wear some sort of clothing when moving between the two. The Narai’s pool, situated on the second floor by the fitness room, is well shaded by high-rise walls. Triple Two features a sensuous spa where you can bask in the sensory delights on offer, and deservedly so after a day of soaking up the many attractions of Bangkok or cutting deals in the office.

The verdict

Triple Two is essentially luxury at a low cost. During my stay, I realised that the hotel had captured the true essence of a boutique residence. The personalised service was much appreciated in such a manic city as Bangkok and the homey environment and wide smiles all around meant that the overall ambience was warm and inviting. The excellent level of security details, such as key cards that are needed to move throughout the hotel, will surely be an assurance to independent female travellers.
