The hotel is in need of updating. The location is a little out of the way but they do have a shuttle boat every 1/2 hour till 11 pm to the skytrain.
There should be more entertainment facilities at the hotel as there is not much to do there. Stay there only if you need to.

Bang on the river in pleasant part of a very noisy city, with good very cheap cafes close by.
Clean, excellent friendly kind staff but somehow rather austere. Needs to cover up some of the extensive exposed wood walls and have many more flowers in public areas.
Small complaints but I have stayed in many 4/5 star hotels in Bangkok which I would go back to in peference, but having said that I greatly enjoyed talking with the excellent staff

My family and I had 2 Ramada River view Suites for 3 nights on stopover and again for a night on the return leg of our trip. It's actually difficult to review as I was undecided but my kids (9 and 11) loved it. This is mainly being down to the fact they had the cold swimming pool to themselves.

The hotel is fine, it's clean, the staff are friendly and try to be helpful (they couldn't tell me anywhere to eat nearby) and breakfast buffet was great with all the usual eggs/rice/muffins etc. I think it starts before 6a.m so its handy if you want an early start.

As stated on previous reviews our suites overlooked a car park and a cemetery and although they were river view, its not overly inspiring to be honest. If looking for a view then ask for the non cemetery side of the building as this looks up towards town.

The free shuttle boat is a nice way to start and end your days/evenings and runs frequently (takes about 15minutes) to Saphin Taksin BTS station which takes you into Siam square etc for 30bt. Be warned that we couldn't find a lift or escalator at the station here so keep that in mind if using prams etc. Anyway, You need to go to the concierge and tell him your room number and get a ticket for the boat but I don't think we were ever asked for it.

The "but" about this hotel is the same one that I've had for a few of the Bangkok ones in that they are really quite dull and soul less. We used the really rather nice riverside terrace bar for a beer one night and were the only ones there. The swimming pool is COLD (and I know what cold is, I'm Scottish) as it gets no sun at any point in the day which prevented us letting our baby have a dip and there's nothing apart from a 7/11 and a small supermarket within walking distance. If I was going back to Bangkok I wouln't stay there again as it's just a bit too far away from the centre (not as far as the Marriot riverside) and the shops etc. The hotel will provide a half hour a day free wifi connection but I had to convince one member of staff of this when he said my room rate didn't include it when it had done the day before. I'm not sure if free wifi is the norm or not...

We didn't use the spa as you can get a perfectly good thai or oil massage outside for a 5th of the price so can't comment on that.

We paid about £90 for each room and this inluded a one way mini bus transfer from the airport, again its not bad but I think with the selection of accommodation on offer in this City I'd try somwhere else next time.

When I travel, I look for luxury at a reasonable price - comfort, convenience, and service. Ramada Plaza Menam Riverside was a 5-star stay on all counts. Visiting the Menam to attend a wedding, we were pleased by our suite, the food, the extras (like the SPA and massage facilities) and the convenience of taking the Menam boat direct from the hotel to central Bangkok. We will certainly stay there again on our future trips.

The service was superb, but the hotel was dated. Even the silverwear they served us
in room service was rusty in some areas. There is a cemetary next door...that was freaky. Hotel staff did their best to accomodate, but their are so many things wrong with that hotel...the food is also very bad. The hallways smell like mold, and they cover it up with incense.
