“A retreat in busy bangkok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Just back from a week here, after staying in central Bangkok. Decided to choose this hotel as it was away from busy bangkok and I wanted to relax.
This hotel is on the river southside , ideal if you fancy a change of seen as its on the river. I liked this hotel , great pool, lots of restaurants and good clean rooms.
The downside of this hotel is that it has recently been taken over and there is refurbishment going on. This was evident at the pool as one sunbathing deck was being renewed. The resort is a litlle tired and needs a good revamp, but the restaurants on site together with a free shuttle make it a good choice.Some taxi dont want to go south of the riuver , so beware and make sure they use their meter, as many dont want to and see you as a tourist ....... Also this hotel is used as a wedding venue, so sometimes can be busy, there were 3 receptions whilst I was there, but did not affect me.

Room Tip: Try for s pool room, the balconies are not very accessible.

The only problem with this place is after you stay here you are spoiled and all your other hotels will seem not quite as nice. I had a beautiful room near the river. My room was clean and very comfortable. I travel alone in Bangkok for business and like to treat myself to a nice place with a nice pool. This hit the nail on the head. Good food, nice pool, nice people. I love being on the river and don't find it that much out of the way. The air is cleaner and it's fun to watch the boats and barges go up and down the river, I did that at the riverside bar which was good fun. I would say this was one of the best places in Bangkok and I have tries a lot of places here.

We had a 3 night stay in The Anantara Riverside, Bangkok. First time in Thailand, so had no idea of where we were heading. We were absolutely delighted with the hotel. The rooms were excellent, with plenty of space. The hotel is across the river from the main part of the city, but a regular boat/taxi took us across to the main port from where we could get on the skytrain, or the hop on, hop off boat which went up and down the river stopping off at all the major city sights. Between the 2 of them we saw as much as is possible to see in 2 full days in Bangkok. In the evening the boat can take you to Asiatique, a new purpose built entertainment/ shopping/restaurant area with a "London eye" type wheel, giving you amazing views of the city at night. We only ate in the hotel one evening, but had an amazing buffet meal which took over 2 hours as we just took our time, watched the free entertainment and decided what ingredients to up in our made to measure stir fry. There are also a couple of good Thai restaurants through the back of the hotel, into the shopping centre. the breakfasts in the buffet restaurant were fantastic. I have never seen such choice. One of the main things about the hotel was the helpful, and friendly staff. They gave as such a good impression of the Thai people. Added to this, the design of the hotel was low rise- very unusual in Bangkok, with lush greenery around the pool area. As has been said before- it was a real oasis in a crazy city. Our next stop was Hua Hin where we had booked The Anantara as well. After our experience in Bangkok, we knew we had something to look forward to there as well, and we were not disappointed.

Our travel company recommended this hotel and we were extremely happy with their advice. Some advise that it is a little way out of the centre of Bangkok but this is irrelevent as there is a free boat service every half an hour which takes you to Sathorn pier and full access to the city. The staff were very friendly, helpful and polite at all times and could not do enough for us. The breakfast was amazing with so many choices. We did not dine in the hotel as we wanted to experience the local cuisine in the city. Again however there were numerous choices on site. Drinks prices were high relative to local bars but that is true of all major hotels in capital cities. There were a number of bars that held 2 for 1 happy hours. If returning to Bangkok we would without doubt stay in this hotel again.

Awesome hotel. Very clean rooms, large beds. We could see the river, pool, gardens and the bridge from our room. Fabulous gardens and pool. Incredible breakfast with so many foods, juices..... They organized seafood bbq night where you could choose how many grilled lobsters, shrimps etc you want to eat and they bake them for you. Absolutely perfect.

This was our first trip to Bangkok and we chose the Antara Riverside based on friends' recommendations. We were very happy that we took their advice - the hotel is beautiful and our room, with its river view, was perfect. While the city centre was easy to access via the hotel's regular river boat service, the hotel's location, slightly away from the hustle and bustle was ideal - a great bolt hole to return to after a full-on day in the city. Service was excellent, as were the facilities including the pool, bars and wide choice of restaurants. We would definitely return here.

The hotel is excellent, with polite and efficient staff. We used The Market restaurant which does a breakfast with an extensive choice. Even the Continental, which we had, gave a wide range of fruit juices, fresh fruit, cereals, any sort of bread or bun you can imagine. Tea and coffee were not so good, though: tea invariably stewed, coffee could be very milky and might be better offered on self serve basis.

Our room was fabulous. Dark tropical woods and light coloured marble type tiled floors. A huge comfortable bed. Good soaps etc and plenty of towels, even a washing line. The balcony overlooked the pool and river. Everything was clean and all the appliances worked fine.

The free boat service is excellent. It runs every 20 minutes and takes you to the edge of the city centre, where a tourist pass can be obtained for the tourist ferry for one day, unlimited trips. The local ferries are much cheaper but incredibly crowded. In the evenings, the Anantara shuttle also calls at Asiatique shopping and entertainment centre.
