“Very enjoyable stay... and the perfect place to be in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

I have stayed in many appartments of the Riverside Bangkok (for business and leisure), last time was in May 2012 in appartment Malee with my family of 4...and I can only say I will certainly return many times more. Being in Bangkok for Business and Leisure, this appartment offers the perfect location with a stunning view on the river just opposite the Oriental hotel and good access to transportation. Nice furniture, elegantly designed, spotless place with all comfort you need, quiet and relaxing. The building offers a beautiful pool, sauna and gym to relax from a busy day. The staff is very friendly, even exceptional things you ask for are taken care off... and this is way beyond the usual service I got in many other appartment rentals at other places before. For any traveler staying in Bangkok for business or leisure, this is the perfect value alternative to a 5 Star hotel. Looking forward to stay there next time again.

We just returned from a trip that I had organized for 2 of my friends and their children to Bangkok. I never write reviews, but I have to this time, because I had a good experience with these apartments.. Staff have been very helpful, from booking process to our stay, apartments are spotless, and everything else we could have needed they supplied when we asked for it. The Staff at this hotel aim to please, in particular, Diamond and Chippie for cleaning. We stayed at apartments Bouganville, a real special place. I travel often, and I would highly recommend staying here if you are in Bangkok. You will not be disappointed.

This is an apartment not a hotel. It comes with the basics and a great view of the river. However, you are given minimum to get by for the week: 1 towel per person FOR THE WEEK, no extra pool towels, no changing sheets, 2 rolls of tp provided and after that you buy your own, no vacuum/broom to at least clean up being that we had 3 kids with us who make the normal daily mess (maid service is not provided unless you pay extra). There is a sink, stove and dishes provided but you have to go and purchase your own dishsoap. I think it would have been nice if the extra touches were provided (tp, change of towels every other day or so, extra pool towels, maybe a trial size dish soap, more than one bar of soap for the shower). Yes, this place is quiet and cheaper but we did miss being able to inquire of the hotel staff any questions like directions or restaurant recommendations. There is not a lot on this side of the river either - you have to cross the ferry for most everything. Lastly, the outdoor pool was freezing cold in June! Good deal for a family but I would save my pennies for something more accommodating next time in BKK.

Dear reviewer,

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to write us a review. I sincerely apologize for the partially unsatisfactorily experience you went through, Our standard offer includes a one per week cleaning/towels and bedsheets changes, any extra cleanings are optional - we provide 2 towels per person, a bathroom and pool towel so I will look into what happened in your case.

We will address the dishwasher/washing machine soap/broom issues immediately. Our on-site staff are reachable by phone or email, so we are sorry you didn't have a chance of talking to them.

May I add that we appreciate your feedback about the quietness and the fair cost level of our rental properties

Best regards,

Jonathan Watkins

An apartment with full amenities (fridge, stove, washing machine, crockery etc) with an exceptional view of of the city both day and night. The staff were extremely polite and the security staff whom you talk to everyday are happy and enjoy discussing different routes & sites around Thailand. These units are sooooooooo clean and secure. I recommend you avail of their hospitality. You will not be disappointed.

This is a first class property! After 3 months of traveling on the road, we splurged and booked 1 week at the Geranium Suite and couldn’t be happier. This 26th floors suite boasts amazing day and nighttime views. The suite is equipped with all of the amenities of home, with the exception of spices, etc. The suite was beyond clean and supplied with the fluffiest towels. We loved the full stock of DVD’s provided. We even asked for some more DVD’s and the staff had them brought to us within the hour! The Wi-Fi is strong and is a secured network, which is much appreciated.

The building is equipped with a wonderful pool area, steam room and sauna and gym on the 6th floor. There is ample room in the pool for swimming and there are really nice deck chairs for your enjoyment. There is also a purified water machine on the main floor, close to the car garage, where you can refill your bottle with very inexpensive drinking water (1.5L for 1 Baht)! The ferry service made crossing the river and getting to the BTS Skytrain easy and simple.

Jonathan and his staff were all amazing and provided us with great service. Their excellent communication made booking this property effortless. We also booked the Airport transfer through Jonathan’s contact Peter. This was worthwhile for a simplified experience. Our driver was a great ambassador and gave us such a great first impression of Thailand.

Bottom line is you get what you pay for. This was worth every penny and we would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a 5 star experience at a great price. We loved it so much!

We are regular for TheRiverSidBangkok and they never disappointed us, they are reliable and professional and their offer is top. We have stayed in almost all corner apartments, all very well decorated an nd with incredible views. This time we visited with a family friends, they were 6. We stayed in apartment Malee and they stayed in apartment Bouganville located in the building in front of ours, 1 minute walk. Both of us were really happy. Our corner apartment is the best for us 2 and we feel at home, our friends had this spectacular 3 baconies apartment right on the river. We used their their ample sitting room for our gathering and it was just perfect. The owners take care of their guests as I have never experienced before and their properties are safe, convenient and beautiful. Make sure you use their limo airport pickup. Both properties have fair gym and pools, for Malee they are quite big and nice.

Room Tip: We like corner apartments, no matter the floor.
