“a wonderful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

we chose the Chatrium on a spur of the moment break and were not disappointed, we had a riverside view and sitting on the balcony on a warm night watching the riverboats and nightlife was magical, the staff at the hotel were very accomodating and nothing was too much trouble for the conceirge staff. Breakfast buffet covered all ranges of food and again nothing was too much trouble. I recommend this hoel for comfort, and friendlessness of staff.

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent, but if you manage a riverview its adds that extra

We stayed for three nights and everything was great! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful with eggs, fruits and plenty of dishes to choose from.

The location seemed a bit out of the way but it was nice to be out of the madness after long days of sightseeing!

We stayed the second time at Chatrium. This time in a std. room with Balcony and River view. Also this time it exceeded our expectations. The Boat Service from Hotel pier to Sky Train station at Taksin Bridge is excellent and waiting time is around 15 min. if you just miss it. Last Boat is at mid night. We had one dinner at the Hotell and this time they offered us a complete package with Food and Drinks included. Very good value for the money.

We stayed at Chatrium riverside for 4 nights in a river view room and I would highly recommend the hotel for both tourists and business patrons. Check agoda early for some super deals - we got a river view room with breakfast for $80 AUD per night.

The good: service is amazing, all of the staff speak excellent English, are attentive, polite and friendly (like most Thai people really!). The buffet breakfast has a huge assortment of foods including: hot western style breakfast goods like bacon, eggs, roast potato and tomato and baked beans. Also tonnes of pastries and cakes, a fruit bar, sushi section, cheeses, Cold salad section, Indian food, Asian noodles/rice dumplings and nice coffee, tea and fruit juice. Great value.

Loved the location, a quick stroll (10 mins or so) to Asiatique, a nice place to check out for a riverside cocktail with the locals. The shuttle ferry was also very helpful.

Room was clean, laundry service very quick, bottled water replenished daily. All in all, a great stay!

Overall this hotel is well-managed with people whose can speak reasonable good English. They will greet you and help to call taxi (taxi is cheap in Bangkok but beware that some taxi drivers will cheat tourists bring them to your destination by a longer route, I 've been cheated twice during my vacation there).

For the location of the hotel, you will find free shuttle boat from the hotel to Saphan Taksin (BTS) station, which is very convenient but you will find it more convenient if you take taxi....for just US$4-5 you will arrive Siam area without walk walk and walk.

Complimentary Wifi is no good i can say, the connection is not stable and you need to enter passcode every time. Don't expect you can login to Wifi and watch football or nba or any drama online.

Breakfast is good if your requirement and expectation is not too high, they have all a standard hotel breakfast buffet have.

The bad thing is they don't have king size bed notwithstanding they offer this choice for you. If you choose king bed room, they will have two single size bed "merged" together so you will feel there's a gap in between...This is the most unexpected feature of this hotel before check-in.

View of the room for both river view and city view should be great. I 've offered a city view room in 1x floor, the view is fantastic and it spacious enough with modern decoration.

All in all, US$120 per night is not a bad choice for similar quality but I probably will not be there again as my favorite activities in Bangkok are shopping and massage. Next time i will choose hotel close to the Siam station.

Stayed in this hotel over 5 or 6 six times this year and are still going back again in December 2012. This hotel is very well managed with excellent staff who can speak reasonably good English. It is clean and located in the most beautiful part of the Chao Paya river.
Like the check-ins very much as they are efficient, friendly and very personal. The front desk staff are the most likable group as they make you feel at home as you check-in or come back to the hotel again.
Food is good at breakfast and the Chinese restaurant at the 36 level is good with spectacular view. I would say that most of my countrymen would like this kind of warm and hospitable hotel environment as we travel abroad.
If one like a very relax and quite place outside home, Chatrium RS is good for both business and pleasure. Thank you Chatrium for looking after me whilst staying there. See you many times more when I am in Bangkok again!

Room Tip: Choose the river side view of the river
