New Siam Riverside is a great midrange hotel in a good location; the staff here are attentive, with an acceptable level of English; the rooms are large, stylish and comfortable and the unlimited buffet breakfast is pretty epic with a huge choice of tea, coffee, juices, fresh fruit, yoghurt, honey, cereals, pancakes, croissants, fresh bread, omelettes, scrambled egg, chicken sausage, bacon, fried rice, delicious fried vegetables, toast and more.
The only complaints I have with this place is that the swimming pool area isn't very special, the staff are too polite to deal with disruptive guests and my boyfriend found a rusty nail in his dinner one night. This in particular is a huge let down as the food here is pretty reasonable and we enjoyed eating here on the whole.
The waitress even asked him if he would like to pay for his meal or not - errr, no?
