Reviewed February 17, 2012

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times and enjoyed it every time. I would recommend a deluxe
room since you then get the room on the 20th floor or higher, with an excellent views of the river Chao Pray. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are clean with good beds. My only complain is that you have to pay for internet, being a four star hotel this is not acceptable! They have a shuttle bus bringing you to town every hour. If you dont reach it for your way home, take a taxi its very cheap in Bangkok. There is an excellent seafood restaurant near by called Baan Klang Nam, you can reach it by foot about 10 min. walk.This hotel is more than 20 years old, but very well looked after and restored.

Dear Koben,

Thank you very much for your recent stay and review on Montien Riverside Hotel.

We are really appreciated to know that you have been here 3 times already. Regarding to your comment on the internet charge, I would like to explain that we have a contract agreement with the internet service provider which they have invested a lot on our property for the installation of internet wifi system therefore in term of return of investment we have to make some charges according to our business partner agreement. However, I would like to recommend you on the Club C room floors where we provide free wifi internet access including butler service and many more for Club floor VIP treatments has to offer.

Please do let us know in advance if you plan to stay with us next time so that we can prepare you some special arrangements.

Loved this hotel, it is old and established, and has an old fashioned luxury not found in modern new hotels.
Location is away from center of bangkok, 30 mins in taxi, but we liked the relaxing atmosphere and quiet.
Rooms good size, lovely big marble bathrooms with shower stall and bath, lots of hot water, and towels changed every day.
Buffet breakfast incredible, something for everyone.
Downside, incredibly expensive drinks, a beer and an orange juice cost the equilvalent of 12.50 euros, doesnt seem so bad when you look at the list, but there is then service charge etc on top. Small wonder the lobby bar is deserted.
All rooms have river view, and the higher the better.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better view

Stayed here recently for four nights while attending a conference at the hotel. The hotel itself is very good, excellent value for money, and I could not fault the service.
However the hotel's location is both an asset and a major drawback. The riverside setting is picturesque, and as other reviewers have commented the hotel surrounds are relatively quiet- for Bangkok. I personally found the location very problematic. The best way to get to the main shopping and eating districts (Siam Sq etc) was to take a taxi to the nearest sky train station then take the sky train from there. This was not overly difficult or expensive, but added a layer of inconvenience to getting around. Unless you are not fussed about shopping or eating out (in which case I'm wondering what you're up to in Bangkok?) a more centrally located hotel would be better.

Room Tip: get a river view

Dear Jim,

Many thanks for your comment on our good service and location. I would like to add that hotel also has Free of Charge shuttle bus to and from downtown including our sister hotel Montien Bangkok in Patpong area. The shuttle bus will run pass by the sky train station, Sathorn Road, Silom Road and Surawonge Road (Patpong) and on the way back it also passes a Shopping Center, Central Rama 3 where you can enjoy a variety of all things you want to buy. Moreover, there will be a new Landmark on the bank of Chaopraya River call Asiatique Riverfront where you can enjoy walking and shopping along the river. There are number of old histories preserved for public like ancient rail for goods transportation in the old eras, ancient crane for goods loading during the old days. There also be Joe Louise traditional Thai Puppet theater, Calypso Ca bare any many more. This place is just 3 minutes from hotel.

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel. It is simply amazing. Service is wonderful. Most of the personnel speak some level of English. Breakfasts were wonderful with a complete buffet offering international foods as well as traditional thai meals. The view of the river and the city was wonderful. Its location is the only negative side, but they offer free bus service into the city center every hour. This made our stay really comfortable and calm, while still being able to access the city center. Amazing hotel, comfortable rooms, great service.

The fact that the hotel is far from the center of city may bother some travelers but we really liked it. Being far from crowd and heavy traffic helped us to feel relax and calm and enjoy our vacation.
Hotel has two bus services One every 1hour to center of city (pat pong street – montian hotel) and the second every 2hours to sky train & express boat station. You can easily adopt your plans and use these buses as we had done so the taxi costs would be reduced.
We arrived at 11:00 am had checked-in in 20 minutes.
There was Nothing wrong with staff behavior.
Our room was clean, spacious and had a very good view to the river.
We enjoyed breakfast a lot with Good choices.
At the end everything was very good and we enjoyed our stay in montian-river side hotel and I suggest it to other travelers.

Room Tip: higher floor rooms had better view

The riverside location is situated a 10-15 minute drive from the`downtown` area of Bangkok, in a suburb. The hotel, . provides regular shuttles to 2 central locations, connecting with the public transport system. The views from the 27 storey hotel are wonderful ...........situated in the river harbour area, it was interesting to watch the daily activity on the water. There are spacious,reception and lounge facilities around the lobby and a choice of restaurants, where we found the food and standard of service to be good, and fairly priced.
The breakfast buffet was excellent, with a huge choice available.
Rooms were large,attractively furnished and well-maintained.
The staff are a great asset to the operation and were, without exception, well-selected and trained............helpful, charming and efficient..
On leaving, we complimented the duty manager on the excellent standard, which had enhanced our stay in the city and she kindly took note of our taxi registration and arranged for us to be met at the airport and assisted with baggage and check-in facilities..........................Impressive!
