A nice new hotel on the banks of the river. It's one of the most expensive choices in the area but I found it to be worth it because of the quality of the room and general location.
Some rooms have a private balcony overlooking the pool and river areas. It's nice to sit out and watch the boats go by even though the river is very brown and polluted.
There is NO VIEW of any of the temples or historical sites from the hotel. There is just a big double condo complex across from the hotel that dominates the view.
The restaurant has some good food. Western and Thai dishes. The service can be slow but its a nice place to relax on the patio overlooking the river.
The hotel fronts onto a busy street with lots of stores and things to see if you go for a walk.
This is an overall good choice if you want some peace and quiet while in Bangkok and can afford the high rates that come with it.
