Great, spacious, modern upmarket hotel in an excellent location in the middle of Silom, just off a busy two-lane road and a really short walk from the market, bars, shops, restaurants, transport links, etc.
Despite the cool design and formal appearance the atmosphere is very relaxed. The staff are super polite, attentive and very helpful, especially the Concierge and the door staff. The lobby is spacious and bright. There is a mini bar on one side of reception, which also services a small covered outdoor terrace just next to the main door, where to spend some relaxing time sipping a chilled drink and watching people by. Also in the lobby, by the Concierge's desk, there is a wide staircase that leads to the restaurant, Latest Recipe - which I review separately but let's just say it's very good!
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and come with all sort of amenities. There is sufficient storage space and the bed is a dream. The bathroom is also big and modern, with a big shower and a separate tub.
There is free WiFi in the lobby. Access in the rooms is chargeable but I found that the Internet tokens you get from reception also worked in the room, so didn't have to pay at all!
The hotel has a spa, with a modest outdoor pool and a rather good gym.
All in all, excellent value for money. I stayed at Le Meridien for a few days at both ends of a recent trip to Thailand. The decision to stay here again on the way back was taken based on the good experience I had on the first time and I certainly wasn't disappointed.
