Hotel in great location for shopping and is close to Skytrain for easy access to all of Bangkok. My first experience staying at Express category and will probably not do it again - missed the Porters, Room Service, bathroom toiletries etc , and other facilities however understand hotel tariff dictates this. Reception staff need further customer service training as some lacked experience in this field. Room large and very comfortable and complimentary breakfast a plus however very crowded each morning and lacked attention to detail with food replenishment.

Stayed because Holiday Inn Silom was fully booked.The room was small but OK.Thought it was expensive for an hotel with no room service.Allso bad smell from shower drain.Dont think i would stay there again as there is much better for the price in Bangkok.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cwcheeze Good proximity to siam and a pleasant hotel
This was my 2nd time staying at this hotel and my 1st time to write a review. Gave up the chance to write the other time as i felt it was just a standard hotel . However, i think i should not discredit this hotel and write a proper review for them.
I would say Holiday Day Inn Express BKK siam has delivered the services as promised. Good and comfortable bed, with a nice interior decor of blue and black theme. There will be 2 types of pillow to choose from in the room, the soft and the firm pillow. Breakfast is serve on the 7th floor and starts from 6am to 1030pm, which i believe it is quite a good range of timing for their hotel guest. Security is not an issue, as the lift only operates with the guest room card keys. The lift will only allow the guest to go to their room level and 7th floor for breakfast. Room service is ok as per standard. They will only issue you new towels if you place your soiled ones on the floor of the toilet and change your bed sheets if you had place the card to request for new bedsheets. No toiletries is provided unless you request from them at the reception. However, some basic multi-purpose soap is provided in the bathroom. If you are worried about theft by the house keepers, there is a electronic safe box in the room too.
Now for the things which i think might need improvement or cons;
1. Breakfast variety needs a little improvement. No doubt there are a lot of food choices, but anybody staying for more than 3 nights is going to have the same breakfast choices. But still, i am happy with the breakfast.
2. Noise from BTS train. The noise coming from the BTS can be quite a nuisance if you are a early sleeper while the train services are still running. Perhaps the hotel could consider sound proofing double glass window panes for rooms close to BTS?
3. Staff attitude. Generally staffs are ok, but when they get busy, their attitude changes drastically especially during checking-out timings. They need to be trained to work under stress. My call from my room to ask for help regarding a lamp that came loose was not attended to at all. I made the call the 2nd time after 15 mins and nobody came up to take a look. Later that day, i went out of the hotel and told the reception about the lamp, a staff noted down the incident. However, when i return to my room that night, the lamp is still loose. No follow-ups or explanation were made.
I believe i have written a fair and non-biased review about this hotel . Overall the hotel stay was still a pleasant one and it is still value for money. Thank you Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mehran Small Lobby, short in staff
Clean and modern but it shorts from Holiday Inn standard in providing service!
Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam has a very small lobby, small reception, only two people both at my check in and check out were available and a long line up!! everyone was almost knew what the other guest was billed for as the area was small ...
Staff were very young and not well trained how to speak with guests.
They had no clue what a holiday Inn membership means. kind of aggressive to the guests that I did not see any reason other than they were overwhelmed with many guests and small area.
such a new and nice building with a good staff and a larger lobby and reception can make a lot whole different.
over all I avoid staying here unless I have no other option.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay2554 Thank you for making this a home away from home
As I prepare to depart in 3 weeks, after 2 months at this hotel, I can truly say it has been an overall great experience; The staff are like family and I will truly miss being so close to transit, laundromat 5 minute walk away and a 7-11 only a 4 minute walk away; however the 7-11 is undergoing renovations and will be closed until March. National Statium BTS Station, where the hotel is located is about a 10 minute walk from Siam BTS...The centre of the BTS network.
Thank you to Sue and her staff for truly making this a wonderful place to call "home" for an extended stay...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by funguy238 Nice friendly staff
Checking in at the hotel, staffs is very friendly and helpful, room is comfortable and clean, only thing I did not like about the room is the room temperature, because the time I stay at the hotel is consider as winter season in Taiwan, and the out door temperature is 15c to 18 c, I tried to set the room temperature at 23c to be more comfortable, but some how it does not help at all. I was thinking maybe the hotel room is not equip or set up for the winter temperature. other than that , everything is excellent.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chyneez Non smoking room reeked of smoke
Booked two rooms on non-smoking floor. Upon entering, one of the room reeked of smoke (room no: 1415). Made a complain and housekeeping attempted to disguise smell by spraying freshener on carpet and curtain, which made the smell even more intolerable. Requested for a change but request declined citing full occupancy. Being a Gold member means little in Express context.
Other than that, everything was okay. Location was ideal, breakfast simple yet sufficient and the amenities are satisfactory.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Richtravels Below Average for HI Express Standard
I am a Platinum member and have enjoyed most HI Express'
Not this one and heres why:
1. Dismissive greeting upon arrival. (Thailand is the Land of Smiles and friendly hotel service). Not even a welcome but a dismissive staff snapping orders for passports.
2. Below average breakfast with too many guests and items running out.
3. Phone call at 11:45am (before Noon check out) chasing me out of room. This was the tipping point for me. Really? Calling before check out to find our when you are getting out.
4. No "How was your stay" or "Thank you at check out."

Good Value for Money stay - don't expect spectacular
Best is the good location - near to BTS station.
I like the coffee to go but the breakfast lacks fantasy - every day the same things.
Better skip that and enjoy good Thai food

Good and clean hotel. City view is great. However no toiletries and must request and collect from the reception counter.
Near MRT station and major shopping centers like MBK, Siam Paragon and Siam centre. Will stay here next time.

Holiday Inn Express have got it right. Excellent value for money. Basic requirements for a hotel stay are there and you shouldn't expect the "add ons" and "extras" for these prices. From check in to check out was a great experience and the breakfast buffet surprisingly good. And the locations is faultless. Well done!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HabSNG Relatively average stay with good service
Generally the experience staying at the hotel was very good. The staff were all very friendly including the security staff. The breakfast was rather disappointing though it has quite a minimum choice of food and we have to share things such as jams etc. I just find it unhygienic. Stayed there for two nights and after the food experience on the first day, decided to take my breakfast outside on the following day. Besides this, my room was just the opposite of the stadium and BTS railway. Unfortunately, there was some activities during my trip and it was very noisy. Not to mention the BTS each time the railway passes by. Nevertheless, it is still a good place to stay. May consider staying there again on my next trip since it is just one minute walking distance to the BTS National Stadium.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jay2519 Great hotel Guests Love near BTS...
I have become a real fan of the IHG Brand since 2010...I have been a frequent long stay guest in many IHG Properties around the world. I am currently staying at this one, and the housekeeping staff have been absolutely wonderful; taking the time to understand my needs when it comes to how i like my room set up...
There's enough variety for me but the daily change is very subtle: one day it will be fried noodle with veggies and the next day fried noodles with seafood...but it doesn't bother me...These staff all try their best.
Ask for a corner room too...They are bigger...
Couple of suggestions,,,Sometimes reception downstairs can be quite slow if a busload of customers comes in at once...Also...unlike the Holiday Inn Express in Taipei/Taoyuan which does have some rooms with bathtubs, this hotel has showers only so i recommend getting extra anti-slip mats as the wet shower floor can be quite slippery after a shower...Another minor thing is the Do not disturb/make up room door card...As this is a newer hotel i thought there would have been an electronic sign outside each room that toggles between DND and Make up room...red to green or something...but as I said that's relatively minor and I look forward to being a repeat long stay guest..

The location is great (just 5 minutes' walk to my favourite MBK shopping centre and 3 minutes to National Stadium Skytrain station. The shower is great. The room and bed are okay. Breakfast is basic but acceptable. The staff are friendly. Wi-Fi could be a bit faster.
All in all, recommendable!

After having stayed in Holiday inn Pattaya which has a mind blowing lobby we expected a similar one here but then we realised we were in Holiday inn Express but trust me there after when we got into the lift and beyond it was Typical "Holiday inn " experience all the way lovely room,great bed,and bathroom and a great city view from 15 th floor ...overall Outstanding experience. Wife loved it too...
Will stay in Holiday inn again & again for their service and assured standards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stwxus good location
Hotel located a block away from the national stadium bts station.
Very convinience for connection to the airport link and other attraction as well as shopping.
Opposite is the very famous shopping mall MBK.
Further down the road is tesco supermarket.
Next to the hotel is Thai massage.reasonable price and good service.after long day of walking,this is the next best thing before bedtime.
Simple breakfast,yet value for money,one unique things compare with other hotels,is you can take it out if you are in a hurry.
cleaniness really need to improve,on the vacuuming and dust on the glass table.but since is new hotel in operation,is acceptable at the moment.
Overall is quite satisfactory.

Beautiful clean hotel, spacious rooms with very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast range, only marred by non-availability of boiled eggs. Great location too with easy access to transport and walking distance to shopping malls. Would use this hotel again on our next visit and strongly recommend this one to friends and families. Hotel must maintain high standards

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cocoachini Convenient and affordable
I had two nights in Bangkok and this hotel was very handy. It is just a short walk to MBK for all your shopping needs. It is also handy just outside National Stadium Skytrain. What I liked is that it is affordable, clean, comfortable and safe. Had everything I needed. Breakfast was good. Bit more limited than other hotels I have stayed at in Asia; however, still far better than breakfasts at North American hotels. Overall, great place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Just so so and not recommended
I was expecting more than this in this hotel. The breakfast is always the same, I have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, and the breakfasts remain the same, maybe they only changed 2 or 3 meals everyday, that i can't remember.
There is a new hotel opening soon near the hotel, and it is under construction, everytime I walk to the Siam Square and passing by the construction site. It is always noisy and dusty.
There is one thing that I am far from satisfactory. When i want to write some comments about the hotel in the guest survey form provided in the room, I am lucky enough to find that it has already been used. What a surprise that the housekeep staff don't replace the guest survey form or they don't even care about guests' comments at all. And again I am lucky enough to know another guest's terrible experience in this hotel and that definetely left a negative impact on my mood.
I won't go to this hotel again and there are so many hotels in Bangkok to choose.
