“Convenient Hotel by River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

2nd time staying at this hotel. Room average but clean and comfortable. Not the friendliest of staff - they often appeared to be annoyed that you were interrupting them if you asked a question. I had a foot massage at their spa which was great. The breakfast is buffet style and was decent. I really stay there because of the location. Along the street are various cafes and little bars which is convenient. You are a short walk to BTS and river boats, good restaurants and shops. I usually end my trip to Bangkok down by the river as it is fun to do so. I will probably stay again due to price and location.

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of April. The room was very clean and as expected; being close to the air con outlet meant it was a little noisy but that didn't bother us. Breakfast was good but the cooked elements other than the eggs were cold which was disappointing however there was plenty other things to chose from but hot bacon etc would have been welcome. The hotel is walking distance to both the BTS and ferry, there's also nice night market and a shopping mall. The hotel is opposite a temple and plenty of bars and places to eat nearby. The check out courtesy facilities were superb. My only complaint is that is was hard to tell which bottles of water were complimentary, we tried both types and were charged for both. The pool was small but very nice and in the sun xx

Room types at this hotel vary WIDELY. There are some TINY, VERY BASIC rooms that might only merit an Average rating. We splurged a little and stayed in a Suite. So nice and worth the splurge, especially when Bangkok is such a dirty city, you want to be able to slip "home" to a nice clean hotel! We LOVED our room at the Bossotel!
Breakfast buffet was great, staff was great (limited English though). Spa in the hotel was pretty good, too.....especially the front-room foot massages.
Laundry service here is very pricey....see if you can find one of those pay-by-the-kilo places.
ALSO, this location is great if you're in the market for Silver....a jillion jewelry and gem stores are right around the corner...mostly for wholesale, but they'll sell for retail as well.

Room Tip: Go for the suite, or at least Deluxe. You might be disappointed in the size of the standard or supe...

We stayed here a total of 5 nights in two different rooms as we left for one night. Room was large and beds were soft the first room had a problem with the shower where it would flood the bathroom as the drain was covered and the second room worked better. Every thing in the room worked well except the shower. Our room was quiet and the view was nice even the windows opened. The location couldn't be more perfect so for comparison to other hotels in the area I would say this is your best for the $, comfort and location. They even have a pool which is very small but clean. I was going to use it but there were children there and being so small it was not inviting. They have a spa at the hotel offering massages which we used. Very excellent actually the best massage we had in Thailand so make sure you use them. The free breakfast buffet was very good and food from the restaurant was ok. Internet worked well from the room. Didn't use gym but it looked good. So this hotel has a lot to offer for the $.

Our only real complaint was: It seems that when you get a classier hotel the staff are not as friendly. The Staff answered all our questions and were somewhat helpful but you would think spending 5 nights they would take more interest in us but not the case. That was true for the Restaurant which we ate at several times. They would have 5 stars if they were more friendly to their guests. Other than that the hotel is very clean with no odors and looks classy.

5 min walk to sky train and river. Near Robinson Mall w/Starbucks, McDonalds and a Food Court. Free boat shuttle every night 5pm- 12am to Shopping and Eateries (a must). Catch at river dock far left.

Room Tip: Higher floors give you a view over buildings which is ok and lower views give you more of a street v...

Location great, access to transport and local eating and shopping without having to travel.
Had made this reservation (and two others) directly with the hotel more than 5 months ago, so was not paying any 'discounted' price, but the direct hotel price. Of note is that all payments have to be made on check-in, so one has little leverage.
Had a 7 night stay and sadly disappointed.
Be very sure to ask the front desk staff to show you a range of optional rooms. Arriving late I did not insist that I be shown other rooms for the same price. They certainly stick you where they can and to occupy the darker, dank and tiny rooms. While I was aware they were reasonably busy, they were by no standards full and management had little interest in helping or making a room change because I had already made full payment for accommodation.
Be cautious it is not totally smoke free, especially when you are at the end of the air conditioning line and have limited access to fresh air.
Internet access is very poor especially when you are in their interior room as I was.

Room Tip: Definitely ask to see comparable rooms otherwise you will get stuck in any small cramped dark and di...
