Hotel in Bangkok’s business district near dining, nightlife, shopping
The Tawana Bangkok is located in the central business district and nightlife district of Silom. Within close walking distance of both Skytrain and MRT stations, the hotel's convenient location and comfortable quarters make it a solid choice. Rooms at the Tawana Bangkok run the gamut, some rooms sport polished wood walls and ceiling fans, while renovated deluxe rooms pump up the style factor with rich hues and lacquer details. The in-house restaurants, swimming pool, fitness center and spa round out the facilities.

Junior suites are done up with wood floors and walls, ceiling fans and rich textiles. Recently-renovated deluxe rooms feature a flashier look, decorated in saturated hues and lacquer artwork. Features include iPod dock and flat-screen TV. Suites take a more authentically Thai aesthetic, with elaborately carved wood detailing, tiled floors and clawfoot tub. All rooms feature in-room safe, high-speed wired Internet access and TV with satellite channels.

Aside from its three on-site restaurants, one of which serves a buffet breakfast, the Tawana Bangkok is situated within a neighborhood full of local restaurants, pubs, bars and convenience stores.

Great place near the major nightlife of Bangkok

We loved staying here and we were just a short walk from most of the nightlife in Bangkok. Only complains were the power would go out occasionally (poor Bangkok infrastructure) and occasionally staff would not know answers to basic questions.

Decent choice

The Tawana is a solid 4 star hotel. The staff speaks better English than other hotels I've been to and they are also rather helpful in most all regards. The hotel is nicely located if you like the Pat Pong area of Bangkok. This hotel charges an arm and a leg for laundry services. While in Chaing Mai, Thailand I could get over 2 pounds of laundry cleaned for 30 baht ($1), but this hotel will soak you 140 baht ($5) for one pair of pants. In many cases you could throw away your clothes and buy new stuff for less. Ridiculous. Also this hotel will charge additional fees for ANY female guest you bring to your room after 6pm of 940 baht ($37) for the visit even if your reservation was for two people (if your guest is not your registered roommate). So depending on your status and intent this could be a great hotel to stay at, but if you plan on bringing company back to your room you are better off elsewhere.

The Smokehouse BBQ is an American owned steak house down the street from the Tawana. The food is awesome, but be prepared to pay American prices.

5 Star is a strech

I stayed at this hotel two times during my trip to Asia. The first time I stayed there were stray hairs in the tub as well as on the towels I was expected to use. During the second stay, the bathroom was covered in flys and no matter how many I killed there seemed to be more in the tub, on the walls, and on the towels. The ac also did not seem to work and the room was really warm, which sucked in the high humidty of Thailand. Although, the rooms looked really nice the looks were very deciving.

This is a 3 star hotel, NOT 5 star!!!!

Nothing wrong with the place, but it's a 3 star hotel labelled 5 stars. Someone was labelled it wrong! Toilet is old, shower curtain is dirty plastic, no fire sprinklers and windows are screwed shut (beware!), toiletries lacking, room decor very dated, carpet tack strip coming through carpet (stabbed my toe on carpet tack strip). Again, it's just a mediocre 3 star hotel, in a reasonable location.

Good weekend get away

We took a vacation with my husband. The hotel was great but the beds are too small for the double rooms. The restroom are too small too. The buffet is too pricy I do recommend this hotel and recommend it to my friends and family. The hotel is well know. "Tawana"is very easy to pronounce and taxi drivers will understand

Clean and affordable

I had a hard time falling asleep because the walls were thin. I could hear people walking down the hall and doors opening and closing. The internet in the lobby is not free, they charge 70 baht per hour. They provide Bangkok Post for free. You can walk to the Metro but not to BTS.

Scoozi, a little Italian restaurant about 5 min walk from the hotel. Loved their pizza and their house wine. Price is reasonable. We ordered pizza, pasta, two glasses of house wine, soda, OJ, and one scoop of chocolate gelato and the bill was under 1000 baht. Will definitely go back if we are in the area again.
