Though initially it will seem that the property somewhere remote, if you are with your family with young children this is the best 5 start accommodation you can get. Being just near to the riverside it not only gives you beautiful view of the city but the convenient and hassle free way of moving around. We stayed here at Chatrium Riverside from Aug3rd to 8th Almost 5 nights and it was simply remarkable as the say. Location is good though not you would be disappointed if you are looking for the happening kinda of location. For that I suggest some good hotels in and around Sukhmwit area. But this one is good if you are looking for a place where you can set your own Pace. Thats about location.
Check in, if you properly inform the reservation in advance you will be in the room within max 10-15 mts. The best service starts from there, usually guests are accompanied first time to their room by an executive from front desk who will explain you everything starting from life access to kitchen and shuttle service.
Rooms are quite big and well maintained. We had taken grand room river view but i think the location of the property gives most of the rooms a view to the river either from balcony or the room. Our room was quite big for 3 of us, was provided an extra bed also without any extra charge which was part of the deal. Only disadvantage for us was we had asked for a big bed and one extra bed, but the room available was with two single beds + 1 extra bed, this was informed to us on check in and we were ok with it. You have fridge, cooking top, micro oven. If you are planning to do your own cooking you can call at your service and ask for it. They are prompt.
The best part is the shuttle boat service which we utilised to the maximum. How we could utilise is mainly because of the ever helpful Concierge which the hotel has. Adorable and very helpful people who will guide you to reach places of your interest in the best possible/cheaper and convenient way. That was just amazing service and we had no problem to find/go to any place because of them. Would say they are the main assets of the hotel. Cannot single out one but all of them were good and helpful. This I would say was missing in the hotel we stayed at Pattaya, which was also a 5 star hotel/resort.
We didn't go for the breakfast in the package as we were our own. This works out to be a cheaper option if you have patience to do your own breakfast in the room in the morning. We preferred that way.
This hotel is recommended to be one of the best hotels suitable for a family stay or couples stay. My wife and kid loved the hotel so much and if we come back to Bangkok we wouldn't be researching internet anymore to find the best hotel in Bangkok. This is the best choice for us.
And the bonus point is just in the same compound you have 7 11 super market from where you can pick up most of the daily stuff (may be not fruits and veggies) but yeah almost everything else.
If you prefer to go to place by Taxis or Tuk-Tuk hotel concierge will arrange it in a jiffy. If you want to go by Sky Train just take the hotel shuttle boat to Sathorn Pier and just outside you have the Taskin station from where you can reach anywhere in the city through train quickly. Or from Sathorn Pier you can take Orange boat for 15 THB to most of the other pier which will have some tourist attraction or other. For example, N9 Pier -> Grand palace, N8 Wat Pho or reclining buddha and from N8 take across ferry for 3 TBH to Wat Arun. And many more.
Over all good choice we didn't have any bad experience and the stay was first class.
Only thing we noticed is the room cleaning can be looked upon little more , its not bad but more details can be taken care which will help maintain the rooms in good shape.
