“Suite dreams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We stayed at the Chatrium for only one night on 24 November at the start of a tour of Indochina. Having arrived from a long-distance flight, we were very early for check-in. However, after having to wait for only a short while, the very pleasant member of staff at reception told us that, rather than delay us any longer, they had upgraded us to a suite. The suite itself was very large, with double-aspect views over the city and the river, and really nicely furnished. We used the complimentary shuttle boat in the afternoon, which made it easy to get to the Skytrain terminal and explore. Because of really heavy rain that night, we ate in the hotel restaurant, while was also very nice, with live music, if that's your thing. Breakfast was a bit busy in the morning, but there was great choice of food, and staff did their best to cope with the rush. All in all, a wonderful start to our trip.

Just came back from Bangkok. This time I choose staying at Chatrium for five days from 19-23/12/2012 . The reason why was that I’ve read from some reviewer that Chatrium got a fantastic river-side view so I choose it. My decision was correct. My room was facing the riverside view with not a small Balcony which I sat there & ate something with my wife enjoying both the food & the good river view.
I have to thank you Mr. Charchawan Napawan, the Director of rooms. Before that, I got some misunderstanding of using free wi-fi while I booked my room, as I needed to use wi-fi to finish my work & finally I got a free wi-fi….just thank you again for his kind arrangement.
I loved the room which including a small kitchen & I easily reheated the food & washed the dishes. It was very convenient & because of the kitchen, that’s one of the reason I booked this hotel. The bed was comfortable too.
The staffs were very nice & helpful, English & communication was not a problem.
The riverside view was lovely especially while you’re watching at night time, it’s enjoyable when you had such a beautiful scenery when you were watching.
Though it’s a little bid away from centre, I enjoyed taking the Shuttle boat from hotel to the pier then to the BTS Suphan Taksin Station, still it’s very convenient. (Please see the photo with shuttle boat time-table) Also it’s very close to Asiatique which you need to go once to have a look.
Breakfast buffet got many choices. I took my breakfast in the outside area, It's a river view & its terrific for me when I looked up in the sky & see swallows flying in the blue sky while you were enjoying your breakfast.
The pool though not too big, the surrounding & atmosphere was good.
I really enjoy my staying at Chatrium for 5days & 4nights.

We spent four days at the Chatrium Riverside hotel and liked it best of all the hotels we stayed at while we were in Thailand. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the large rooms quiet and contain every amenity you could need, the beds comfortable, and the location very lovely and convenient. We were exceptionally well taken care of and began to feel of it as a home. The free river shuttle to the BTS station was so convenient and helped us avoid the gridlock that often occurs in Bangkok. The guests of the hotel were even invited to an in-hourse ceremony celebrating the King's birthday, which was an honor to attend.We absolutely plan to stay there when we return!

We decided to spend our last few nights in Thailand at a more upscale hotel. The Chatrium did not disappoint! The room was MASSIVE and the beds were so comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the Chao Praya, and loved the boat service from the hotel. The pool was beautiful. The concierge were wonderful, and helped us with dinner reservations and muay thai tickets. If I have the opportunity to visit Bangkok again I would stay here in a heartbeat!

I wrote a review on this place earlier this year and I wasn't too favorable in my review. I returned to BKK in December and ended up staying here twice in Dec. I was staying at the Lebua hotel and ended up checking back into this hotel..

The staff are friendly and helpful.. As an example I ran into one of the staff at the Skytrain while looking lost. She recognized me as a guest of the hotel.. Stopped and chatted to myself and my friend and really helped us out with how to get where we were going and even gave us suggestions on things to do..

There was an issue with both staff and cleanliness at this premises earlier this year. This seems to be resolved. The rooms are really nice with a glass balcony so you can leave your curtains open and wake up to the river beneath you each morning. The pool and spa facilities are excellent as is the breakfast!

One minor complaint is that the internet could be better. I think the routers are in the halls. The rooms are quite big and sometimes you need to stay in one area of your room to get a decent connection. I definitely wouldn't let this put you off. This was my first place to stay on what has turned into a 6 month trip around asia.. This is the best hotel I have stayed in.

The Hotel is perfect. Rooms are really nice, clean and comfortable. As it was the birthday of my fiance they upgraded us to a Suite which was unbelievable friendly. Additionally they brought us a Birthday cake. They have a free boat ride to the close Metro station. The Pool is beautiful and clean, too! The breakfast Buffet had been one of the best buffets we had so far in Asia.
