This is a real Italian palazzo built in the 1920s and lovingly restored in 2012. It reminded us of staying in Venice. The rooms have high ceilings and are very regal in an elegant way. The hotel feels like a private villa on the Chao Phraya river which is the main river running through Bangkok. You arrive on a dock on the opposite side of the river and the hotel's private launch picks you up. The hotel gives you a cell phone so that you can get the boat whenever you need it. The pool was great as was the food. We spent our days taking river boats to different locations and avaoid taxis completely. This hotel is at the north end of the river. Most of the fancy hotels are to the south.
