We stayed here with 3 rooms for a total of 6 nights. Initially after 24 hours I had given this property a negative review. There were a lot of issues with room assignment, service etc. Emanuel picked up on my comments and immediately took action to make some improvements. He reached out, we chatted and services that were important to us to make our stay more enjoyable were taken care off. That at the end of the day makes a hotel, a good hotel. Trying to accommodate. The question remains if it is a hotel where I would go back to? Possibly, although my hotel preference is less resort and flip-flops especially in a city and more polished and detailed. It is also a little too far from everything and had the feeling that I had to keep an eye on the clock to make boat shuttles etc. Having that said, my friends thought it was a welcoming change of the usual city hotels and enjoyed that they were able to have breakfast in their swimwear, any many other guests did too. So Anantara Riverside is definitely worth staying, but if you are more a Peninsula, or The Siam kind of person, you may not enjoy the Anantara Riverside as much. Thank you Emanuel for your effort to make our stay memorable. Read less

We used the Christmas break to visit Bangkok for about 6 days, and we were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It was a great experience, wonderful friendly staff and very accommodating. Great scenery on the riverbank with the boat rides to the pier on the other side for the metro connections.

Beautiful hotel, feels like you are at a resort. We used a taxi several times to get to different places (very cheap) but the majority of time we would take the ferry up river to the pier where you can catch the skytrain or other river shuttles to interesting places. The Iconsiam is a must see. When you book get the breakfast option. Best… Read more
Beautiful hotel, feels like you are at a resort. We used a taxi several times to get to different places (very cheap) but the majority of time we would take the ferry up river to the pier where you can catch the skytrain or other river shuttles to interesting places. The Iconsiam is a must see. When you book get the breakfast option. Best breakfast buffet I’ve ever seen. It’s huge in terms of variety and the quality of food is great. Get a river view room in building two. The rooms are newly renovated. I’ve read other reviews complaining about older rooms. Overall value for this property is unsurpassed. Read less

Absolutely first class Hotel & Resort in all aspects. Outstanding staff and attention to detail. Superb accomodation and facilities, with exceptional River Dinner Cruise. Check in at Front Desk very early morning was outstanding. Will stay again when in Thailand without hesitation. HOWARD
