On entering this is a most impressive hotel, with splendid river views. However, this is where the compliments end. Our room was very basic for the price, and the television was antiquated. The hotel wi-fi had to be purchased by the hour and this was not communicated in the advertising. Breakfast was plentiful but lacking in quality with similar hotels... More

Arrived by river - hotel was in a great location for us. Quick check-in - absolutely huge suite - spotless. We had a fantastic view of the river and city for miles - it was impressive during the day but the brightly lit city at night in the distance was amazing. Hotel interior was fine. We only had breakfasts here... More

I just spent two days on business in Bangkok, the Hotel was recommended by my business contact. The rooms are very basic and poorly furnished.My telephone did not work and was not repaired. It was very noisy, at all times of night and day. I had chosen the second dearest room a superior deluxe, as I had read the comments... More

Location was impeccable, Chao Phraya River is just out the door. Food was amazing! They have Halal and vegetarian option. Rooms were fine but what impressed me most is the staff. They all look you in the eye and ask for what you need. Definitely a hotspot!

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days, as we needed access to the Yanhee Hospital, and it was convenient. We found the hotel quite good, the room seemed to have been updated recently, and had wonderful views over the river (superior deluxe) The staff didnt have good english, but the hotel mainly caters to tourist groups and business...

We had a meeting nearby so the location was good for us but it might be out of the way for those seeking to do tours of the the city across the river. There is a boat that will take people to the hot spots although we didn't use it. Also , there is a drop off for the commuter... More

Booked a deluxe river view for four nights in January 2014. Ended up leaving after two nights as I just couldn't stomach staying there any more. Believe all the negative reviews - the hotel is outdated, out of the way, with unhelpful staff, most with little/no English, concierge who does dodgy fixed price deals with taxis, dirty rooms, mosquitoes hanging...

Terrible service at the front desk since we arrived. Not sure if the lady in charge was upset for something but she was rude even when we asked for simple directions about public transport. In addition, we booked a triple room under the category "Deluxe River View" expecting to see the river but our view was to the back street... More

My family and I first came to this hotel back in 2008 and liked it so much we came back in 2009 and 2011. This year, the staff were not friendly, the porter hung around VERY obviously for a tip. We had to ask for tea and coffee baskets on the first day and they were not replenished. Also on... More

We rented a "deluxe, river view" room for three adults. We were told at the front desk that 'river view' did not mean we would see the river (description on Agoda said partial view). You have to book a River Front room to actually see the river. Other than that, we had a huge room...too big to see the little... More
