“Nice Hotel, perfect spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

In terms of location the Ibis is set in between the temples you will want to see and the shopping locations in town, there is a shuttle service to the local station which takes you into town.

There is a 7-eleven on the corner and a mall across the road, in the evening lots of local hawker fayre

Typical Accor hotel, clean and efficient, most rooms have a view of the river.

Only a couple of minor downsides, not enough to hinder your stay but one for management to note:

-There is no fast check out, despite taking a holding deposit at check in, expect to do it all again at check out.

-The pool closes at 7pm!

- No gym or fitness room on site, my fault not to notice upon booking, but still a common facility expected in major hotels.

We had 4 nights stayed at the hotel, the location was good and helpful staffs. We really enjoy but small tip for Ibis that the hotel should set up slipper in the room, I think it just small thing but will make the tourist more comfortable then. The old man at tour desk very nice person, will recommend for u the good tour u should choice, even when u want to get the infors.

Easy to get a taxi just 10min waiting and cheaper cost around 150 Bath to Platinum or MBK Mall. Front of the Hotel, u will find a small restaurant in the left side, they have good Dimsum and delicious Thai food there ( special Crab curry with rice) with cheaper price ( 77Bath/per). So awesome. Would stay here with my friend next time.

We were a wedding party of more than 30 and so the logistics must have been complicated but we never felt it. Lovely breakfasts, pool, evenings in the patio and contemporary room design made up for the somewhat inconvenient location. It was a 15 min walk with the kids to the ferry to quickly cross the river to catch the train or to hire a long tail boat for a tour of the city by way of the canals. Fantastic!

Typical of Ibis clean, tidy, great staff. Great pool to just sit and relax why not even get a massage while by the pool. In a excellent location on the river just minutes from the train station. First time to Bangkok and would defiantly stay here next time..Is great for business, couples and family holidays

Stayed at the Ibis Riverside bangkok three times on our last trip -

We travelled with our two young boys aged 4 & 2 and it was perfect.

Rooms had double bed + bunk beds. Awesome views across the river and city. Two tvs, easy lift access down to lobby.

Breakfast is a bit lacking but pretty normal for thailand. On weekends they have an outstanding lunch buffet. On the whole the restaurant could be a bit better the prices are quite high.

Swimming pool is a huge plus.

Every half hour they do a courtesy van to the nearest BTS station. When you come home its a fairly easy walk home once you know the way.

Biggest negative is thecost of doing laundry. So high its simply not worth doing.

Will definately stay again when we return to bangkok

The location make this a very relaxing stay at a relatively small cost, the rooms are the same as most Ibis,s around the world, what makes this one stand out is the pool/gardens and wonderful river view. I think the hotel could provide more comfortable seating to enjoy this view ,but to have your breakfast overlooking the river is wonderful. This area is also very pleasant, far away from the tourist trail.
