Where To Stay in Silom
Editor's Guide to Recommended Hotels in Silom
Part of the city's main business and financial district, Silom is short on traditional tourist attractions but high on modern energy – glass-and-steel office buildings, great bars and restaurants, and pulsating nightlife scene. In fact, Silom is one of the most liveliest and popular areas in town.
Depending on where you stay along its 4.5km length, Silom places you roughly halfway between the riverside and main shopping areas like Siam Square. Accommodations range between mid-range and five-star luxury, and prices reflect this. The area is loosely served by three Skytrain (BTS) stations – Surasak, Chong Nonsi and Sala Daeng.
A stay in this area gives you the access to the main shopping and entertainment segment of the Silom area, including Patpong. Office workers by day become bargain and thrill seekers by night, as the straight stretch comes alive with shops and stalls selling all manners of merchandise, great restaurants, bars, Thai massage parlours, crowded clubs and notorious sex shows.
Rising above the scene is the skytrain, which connects to the subway station at the end of Silom road. Just beyond it is Lumpini Park – the perfect daytime escape from the noise and pollution.

Busy but not altogether bustling, the area of Silom near BTS Chong Nonsi - roughly in its middle - is populated by huge office tower blocks and corporate offices, and people scurrying about in suits. Lots of shops of marginal interest and decent restaurants strewn along this stretch - including seafood, Italian and, of course, Thai - as well as further afield, on nearby Sathorn and Narathiwat roads. A stay here puts you roughly midway between the riverside, in one direction, and Patpong's chaotic entertainment and shopping in the other. Both are in walking distance, but perhaps best reached via tuk-tuk or taxi.
