Bangkok is a fantastic, bustling city but Chakrabongse is an oasis of calm, set between the Wat Pho temple and the river. About half a dozen rooms are set around a private garden, with a walk to breakfast, served in a beautiful building literally on top of the river, and providing the most wonderful views. The rooms are individual and... More

This traditional Thai décor restaurant near Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) on the Chao Phraya River has both indoor, air-conditioned, tables and, if the weather cooperates, outdoor tables. Reservations are a must, online if you like, as this pricey, high-end traditional Thai food service only serves 30 diners a night ! The menu is fixed, it's pricey by... More

An oasis of calm; small, intimate hotel. Best part was simply delicious dinner served on the terrace overlooking the river (only two tables), so truly unique experience. Breakfast on the terrace also a treat. Manager and staff were very helpful. Nice pool, which we had to ourselves for a whole afternoon.

It is a beautiful carm and homy oasis in the middle of hectic Bangkok, opposite the royal palace and 5min tuk-tuk-ride away from Khaosan Rd. Only six suites suround the swimming pool and an affectionately cared-for garden. Suites are very cosy furnished - one feels immediately at home. While having a drink directly served in front of the river Chao... More

What an interesting beautiful hotel, without the feeling of a hotel. Perfectly placed on the river with views of the Temples. The history of the buildings is passionate and the manager is more than happy to share it with you. Within an easy walking distance is the must-see flower market as well as easy access to the The Grand Palace... More

We stayed here a year ago in the Garden Suite and loved it so much we booked again this year at the start of our holiday. As we both love watching the boats on the Chao Phraya river we booked the Riverside suite. Both are good but the Riverside suite enjoys an enormous terrace to boat watch and have breakfast.... More

The Chakrabongse Villas is one of the most special places I've ever stayed. My husband and I stayed in the River View Suite and the room was beautiful. We had a balcony that was perfect for watching the sun set behind Wat Arun. Our room had fresh flowers, tons of privacy, a comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom, an office and and... More

We stayed at the Chakrabongse Villas for three days and really enjoyed this boutique hotel. It had a great location within walking distance to Wat Po and the Grand Palace. It is a quiet setting with lovely gardens all around. Right on the river directly across the from the Temple of the Dawn (you can take a short ferry to... More

Real estate people stress "location, location, location." Travelers should bear this in mind, when considering Chakrabongse Villas. Set directly on the Chao Praya River, and only five rooms in total -- all designed in traditional Thai architectural style -- this is a luxurious gem. Priced for exclusivity, and worth every cent. We loved the breakfasts served on our balcony, looking... More
