The Salil Hotel – A Slice of Classical Europe in Thonglor
Bangkok is a diverse and multicultural city, where you can experience a world of different cultures in a day if you know where to go. For instance, there’s Chinatown in Yaowarat, Koreatown at Sukhumvit Plaza and Little India in Phahurat. But if you’re looking for a hangout with an elegant European vibe, then The Salil Hotel Sukhumvit 57 – Thonglor would be the place to go.
Located in the middle of Sukhumvit 57, a mere 10-minute walk from Thonglor BTS, is the eight-story hotel – done up in eye-catching ivory marble studded with gleaming-black window panes. The clever use of black on white makes the building look taller and wider in the tight space. The designers also made use of the limited space very effectively by fitting in an on-site café, meeting room, lobby, working area and a shop – all on the ground floor.
The black and white theme spreads to the interior, giving the hotel a contemporary, spacious and modern feel, while the secret garden offers visitors and residents a perfect place to greet the morning, offering a quiet reprieve with a soft-tone wooden ambiance. Salil’s “Concept Living Space” motif divides the hotel into sections where guests can stay, eat, play, work, relax or shop.
Guests have two options for food and beverages in the lobby area. They can enjoy high tea at the Mariage Frères Tea Room, which is artistically cozy with wooden floors and paintings on the ceiling, or tuck into a meal at the Bar Storia del Café, which serves from 6am until midnight in a classy European atmosphere.
The hotel offers three types of rooms: Premier, Deluxe Suite and the Living Suite – each tastefully done up following a classic European aesthetic with oriental touches. Each room is well-appointed with English furniture, and murals based on Asian and European flora and fauna. The friezes give the rooms soft and relaxing touch, bringing in the soothing color of nature.
The “relax” area on the eighth floor comprises the gym and a rooftop pool, where the design is inspired by the classic English garden. The Salil is not just another beautiful hotel, but a place for Bangkokians to escape the bustle of the city.
