Stayed 8 November 2012 for one night.
We stayed here in March 2008 when it was part of the Marriott group. As a family we've always stayed at this hotel and have enjoyed the atmosphere of the place. So, it was with trepidation that we returned. We could not discern any real difference between the two managements. Being nit picking there's no complimentary water on the shuttle to the Thaksin bridge or on the return leg. Other than still a great place to stay if you want somewhere removed from the city centre but with ready access to the Sky train ( Thaksin bridge) and the shopping malls or the PAtpong night market.
The staff as ever are very helpful.

Didn't use room service, spa or the gym. Therefore, no comments

When you experience something as good as this it's hard not to rave but Anantara Bangkok Riverside has it all! wonderful, wonderful staff, and an atmosphere that embraces all that a really good holiday requires. We have stayed in many hotels over the 18 years that we've been going to Bangkok and although we are a little further away from the centre of business, we think the slight inconvenience is well worth it. We will always try and stay at Anantara Bangkok Riverside in the future and enjoy the wonderful food and pool and peace and quiet that the river location provides. Can thoroughly recommend it!

In October, my family and I spent 3 glorious days at the Anantara Riverside. We all agreed that our experience was akin to being in someone's home, The graciousness of the management and staff were exceptional.
I would recommend Anantara Riverside, Bangkok to anyone who would like a "home away from home"!! We will certainly return next year!

We have been staying at this hotel on and off for maybe 15 years. We are very pleased to see that all of the traditions and fine services have been maintained since changing from a Marriott Hotel to an Anantara Hotel.
The staff cannot be nicer, the facilities are fantastic (including the best pool in BKK and maybe all of Asia), the breakfast are superb, the bakery excellent, the boat service efficient (and now includes stops in the evening at Asiatique, the new night market across the river) and the views of the busy river very fun to watch.
I cannot give this hotel a rating higher than 12 on a 10 scale.
We will continue to make this our first stop for years to come when traveling in BKK.

I totally disagree with Wala69's comments. The new uniforms are crisp and very thai. The old ones had gotten a bit tattered we had noticed on our last visit in nov, 2011.

I should also say that we consider this hotel a real oasis in the madness that is bangkok

Room Tip: we prefer the main central building, but all are convenient and comfortable.

Since the Anantara has left its former hotel chain alliance it has lost a lot of its flair.
The employees now wear more business like clothing when in the past you had the nice, local feeling when you arrived.
We got upgraded to a room which actually was a downgrade for us as the room was smaller and has not been cleaned in days. We had dead flies on the bed, the bathroom and one every window board. The bathroom was so small that there was no way to fit two people in at the same time. The same with the sink. It was so small that washing your hands became a challenge.
We asked to be downgraded again which gave us a much nicer and bigger room with a nicer view.
The staff was still nice and friendly but no comparison to our earlier visits.
The breakfast buffet was changed as well but still had the nice and fresh feeling to it and was very tasty. Internet was free during our stay.
The main reason for the drop from a 5 Star to a 2 Star review was the feeling you get when you are there. It is more distant, colder and just plain business like.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review on our resort. I am so sorry to read your review since it is completely the opposite of what we strive for with our team on a daily basis. We have clearly let you down on this occassion and we do apologize sincerely for this.
I personally wish we could get in touch to talk about this further and so I could apologize in person or by phone which is much nicer than by email. I hope you would give me that chance and my email is cpronk@anantara.com

Warm regards,
Claudia Pronk
General Manager
