0.81km from Suandusit UniversityOur stay at this hotel was lovely. We usually stay at a Four Season property when traveling, but wanted to take a chance on a boutique hotel. The physical plant was as described, absolutely serene, and beautifully maintained. We only ate breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment on the food, but the breakfast was surprisingly good. You could have anything you wanted, and the baked goods were delicious - I wasn’t expecting the variety or quality- they appeared to have been shipped in from Europe but were local. Our room was large, very clean and expertly maintained throughout our stay. The best thing about the Siam hotel was the staff, starting with the general manager. He appeared to be everywhere at once, gently directing staff, but in such a way as to make the interaction between himself, the staff and guests completely natural. The various staff from doorman, Bellman, waitstaff and Butler all seemed to like him and he interacted with them as a peer, not a director, yet he was clearly in charge. It was a pleasure to watch that degree of people skill and customer focus. Whether that was necessary or not is unknown because the staff uniformly displayed the genuine warmth and hospitality so typical of the Thai people. Our room Butler kept track of our schedule and ensured we were where we were supposed to be without ever seeming intrusive. All with that genuinely warm Thai approach. He is a gem. The pool was lovely and clean, and located right on the banks of the river which made for a great entertainment while sitting and soaking after a long hot day (it was also great for lap swimming). The gym was astonishingly good for a hotel of this size and intimacy. It has its own small Muay Thai ring, It too was clean and well maintained at all times. In sum, the staff executed so well it just felt like you were staying with friends who cared about you. The property’s location up river from the bustle of Bangkok allowed for a wonderfully decompressing 20 minute boat ride each way in the morning and afternoon. If you wanted to go downtown for dinner you could have a cocktail at the bar and bring it with you on the boat. Then they’ll pick you up after dinner. It just doesn’t get better! Thanks for a lovely visit, we look forward to our return.
