Silom

Where to stay: Silom

Silom Road runs parallel to Sathorn Road and it’s easy to walk from one of these well-known thoroughfares to the other. The places filed under the Sala Daeng section of Silom Road are all within easy walking distance of Sala Daeng BTS station and Silom MRT station towards the east end of Silom. The west of Chong Nonsi section covers Silom Road running west from Chong Nonsi BTS station to Charoen Krung Road. The Saphan Taksin section is for accommodation closer to the Chao Phraya River, including the old European quarter. Sathorn Road includes places to stay near Surasak BTS station and otherwise directly on Sathorn Road itself. Finally, Soi Ngam Duphli covers an old traveller ghetto hosting some of the Silom area’s only dirt-cheap guesthouses.

More on Silom

We have 24 places to stay in and around Silom.

Sala Daeng

These places are all found within easy walking distance of the interchange between Sala Daeng BTS station and Si Lom MRT station. The alleys extending from the northern side of this stretch of Silom host the Patpong red-light district, but the southern side, where most accommodation listed here is located, features abundant street food, trendy cafes and loads of urban energy. Lumpini Park is also an easy walk away.

West of Chong Nonsi

Though always colourful and with plenty of tuk tuk drivers trying to sell you “tours,” the stretch of Silom Road running west of Narathiwas Road and Chong Nonsi BTS station to Charoen Krung Road isn’t quite as busy as the Sala Daeng stretch a bit further east. Several good hostels are located down this way, you’re always within a 15-minute walk of the skytrain and the Chao Phraya River is within walking distance to the west.

Saphan Taksin

The properties included here are within walking distance of Saphan Taksin bridge and the same-named BTS station, which stands next to the central Chao Phraya express boat pier. If you’re looking for a name-brand luxury hotel on the riverfront, this is where you’ll find the Mandarin Oriental, Shangri La and Royal Orchid Sheraton, among others. Those after something cheaper/smaller will find a handful of solid options in this historic area, part of which was once Bangkok’s European quarter.

Sathorn Road

The following options are located on and around Sathorn Road in the business district. You’ll need to walk a bit or take the skytrain for a stop or two in order to reach the street food enclaves, but some travellers will dig the modern-urban feel. Surasak and Chong Nonsi BTS stations, and Lumpini MRT station, keep the area connected to public transport. Silom Road is walking distance to the north of all of these places.

Soi Ngam Duphli

Once a go-to backpacker area before Khao San Road overtook it in the 1990s, Soi Ngam Duphli is still the only other place in the city where you’ll find a selection of old-style guesthouses selling dirt-cheap private rooms in one tightly packed neighbourhood. In more recent years these have been joined by some flashier midrange options, though the area still has a somewhat tired and seedy feel. It is fairly convenient, with easy access to Rama IV Road, Sathorn Road, Lumpini Park and the MRT at Lumpini station. Cars and motorbikes often use the narrow streets as shortcuts, so be careful when walking around here.
