We always stay in rooms with balconies over the river. I do much with Peace Corps, which is a walk across the bridge, so the place works for me. BUT it is much more. The people are wonderful (okay, so they remember me from year to year), the breakfast buffet is great, the river taxi stops down a short walk... More

I stayed here on businesses from July 10th to July 14th. Unlike what some reviewers have said, I found found the staff to be extremely friendly, extremely helpful, and the accommodations quite acceptable. The drive from the airport took 45 minutes by cab. It was 10 pm so traffic was reasonably light. If your cab driver gives you the option... More

Took us 3 hours from the airport to this hotel. When we arrived they informed us that they only had 1 hour Internet cards and no internet in the room. Their 24 hour Internet cards finished. Looked empty, old and strange. So we canceled our reservations and left immediately.

“Loyal Liver, you sure?” that’s what he said and now I see how the pre-paid taxi driver from the airport was wise. He charged me 1000 baht and pretended his meter was broken, which I thought was quite over the top until I saw the Royal Rover’s rate of 1,600. This hotel, from the street entrance, actually features a multi-level... More

Ok so the worst ever thing about this hotel is the location! Its in the middle of woop woop nowhere! So if you want a place close to all the action, forget about it! The grounds and foyer of the hotel are ok(probably pretty decent 20 years ago) and my room (635) at least needed a general refurbishment. Pretty tired... More

Stayed for a week on a business trip. Great hotel - comfortable, clean - everything you might expect in this range. A lot cheaper than comparable hotels in silom or sukhumvit. It is way off the tourist track - although relatively close to the Vimanek mansion and the zoo. If you are a tourist it's probably a good deal as... More

We stayed here several times during our visit to the region, using the hotel as a launching point to various other destinations. The staff are very busy during peak times, but still very caring. As an American tourist, it was fun to see that there were large tour groups staying here from other parts of Thailand, such as a group... More

This hotel is probably underrated by Americans. This is because Americans often do not understand the easy access they have to the great fun of Bangkok. The RR is located on the River at Boat Stop #16. The river has passenger boats going up and down the river like buses in the USA. Boat stop #9 is the hub of... More

Firstly, I stayed in this hotel as part of a dragon boating competition and it was all pre-organised by a central coordinator. We didn't book it or choose it ourselves, however we did a bit of research beforehand and read reviews on this site. From the reviews we wondered what on earth we were letting ourselves in for, and I... More
