Silom Village Inn- It is a small, older hotel that is the backbone for a small "village" of shops and restaurants that apparently lets you feel like you are in a village instead of the heart of bangkok. Many of the rooms overlook the village. It is about $46 a night.
Narai Hotel- Good location. Rooms are a bit more updated than the Silom Village Inn. Breakfast is included. Nothing really sets the place apart. About $60 a night.
Centre Point Silom- Very nice and updated. A kitchenette is included in every room. There is a an American supermarket in the basement of the hotel which would be excellent. We could walk to the water ferry from the hotel as it is right off of the river. The reviews say that there is a washer and dryer in the kitchen though nothing is listed. Price with breakfast buffet included is $87 a night.
Anyone want to help me narrow it down?
