“Lovely oasis in bustling city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I really liked this hotel. Its more like a resort so you could spend your entire time here and not even know you were in Bangkok. There are several restaurants and bars but it would cost you. The breakfasts were excellent with a massive choice of stuff-the pretzels were great. The pool is lovely but feels a little exposed, has a great bar in the pool. Lovely to swim at night too. The gym is well equipped. The rooms are lovely and all have a balcony I think. The wifi was free and good strength throughout the hotel. I was disappointed the business centre charged you to use their computers. I would stay here again and possibly even bring my family, there is a small kids club and babysitters. There is a boat to Thaksin station and another to Asiatique although I would avoid the latter unless you want some different food.
Overall very pleasant but a bit out of the way and if you want to experience the city I woud stay elsewhere.

Dear Dave1408,
You have totally described how we would wish to be perceived, as a Resort for couples seeking seclusion with the availability of adventure not too far away and for families looking for the ideal family holiday complete with Resort activities and something for everyone in the family.

Our frequent complimentary shuttle boat offers excellent and convenient access to the city center and the best way to get to access to Bangkok’s top sightseeing spots along the river.

I hope to see you again at the Anantara Riverside with your family.

Kind regards,

Nickolaus Priesnitz
General Manager

We arrived about 5.p.m on a Friday and heard the sound of jack hammers nobody had mentioned this. We thought as it was weekend it would go quiet but we found it went on until 7pm each evening.Not what we expected. The hotel is large with many bars and restaurants. We found the Italian best to our liking although still expensive , a little less crowded. The breakfast buffet was huge and it was worth a walk around first noting what to get in what order so as to get you eggs etc hot. The service for extra tea was not good.
We did not use the pool as I do not like poolchairs that are set out in rows with no privacy. The room was ok if it had been quieter but the standard of cleanliness was not up to a supposed 4+ star hotel. it would have been nice to sit on the balcony to watch the river.(But no chairs there)
There were lots of children there as it was a weekend.
The shuttle boat was good to get to the center dock to enable you to get further up the river.

Dear 918tersah,
Thank you for your comments which have been taken note of and shared with my team. I am sorry that the noise from the building works had caused you discomfort. Our new Avani Hotel is currently in the works next door, which, when completed at the end of 2015 will also feature a shopping mall and various entertainment outlets.

I do hope you will allow us the opportunity to serve you again on your next visit to Bangkok. Please drop me a line and I will personally greet you on arrival.

Kind regards,

Excellent Luxury hotel in a prime position. Stayed four nights at the start of our 17 night stay in Thailand. The first night we were offered a 2 for 1 Buffet Dinner at their Riverside restaurant, which was a great start to our holiday. Unfortunately for the rest of our stay, the restaurants were expensive. We did eat at their Italian restaurant, which was expensive and poor value for money.
The free river boat was great for going to the night market, where there was a good selection of less expensive restaurants.
The pool was lovely, great for relaxing after a days sightseeing.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, as were all the staff at the hotels we stayed in.
Would definitely recommend this hotel

Room Tip: We stayed in a 'Deluxe River View' room which was excellent

Surely Ixhipster ( review Dec 2013) went to a different hotel. This hotel is set in beautiful grounds.
Our room was very modern and not in need of refurbishment.
The staff are generally very helpful, friendly and efficient. The food is certainy more expensive than eating in a small Bangkok restaurant but it is very good and, in my opinion, worth the money.
The Riverside terrace buffet was very good value on our first night because there was a two for one offer. The breakfast buffet was absolutely excellent.
in my view the only downsides were 1) The service in the Longtail Bar could have been better and 2) Our river view room was excellent but noisy tugs would pass by in the early hours which made it difficult to sleep.

Room Tip: The River View rooms are very good but be aware of possible tug boat noise during the night. Ear plu...

Amazing hotel on the riverbank of Bangkok. They provide a free shuttle boat to Asiatique and the metro train. The hotel has many restaurants and each are very good. The Italian restaurant chef took very good care of us. If you book a suite you can also use the Kasara Lounge which is excellent but you need to be in the hotel to make the most of it.

Spent 4 nights here in Feb 2014 for a conference. Beautiful, modern, updated rooms with fantastic bathroom including shower and tub. Very comfortable bed. Very quiet. Really great breakfast buffet which was included in price of the room. Lunch buffet also very good. Right on Chaopraya river. Boat shuttle from hotel to night market and also to nearest sky train station so very convenient. River can smelly especially in the morning. Did not try their pool area.

This was a very nice hotel with friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice. The hotel was spotless and my only thing to moan about would be the price of the food which I found a bit expensive in the evenings.Would I go back to this hotel? YES

Room Tip: We had room 314, this was quiet and very clean.
