Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel

Bangkok, Thailand

The hotel

They say Wat Arun is the best place to see the sunset in Bangkok – but it has a rival in Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel. Up on the rooftop of this central urban retreat, just moments from Riverside Plaza, the infinity pool appears to teeter over the vast Chao Phraya River, letting you gaze out over life on the river in the daytime, and watch the bright lights of Bangkok glittering as night draws in. You can also catch those skyline views from your guestroom, as you dine on Pacific Rim cuisine at Trader Vic’s, and from the roof-capping SEEN Restaurant & Bar, where the al fresco dining deck is scattered with nightlights and lanterns.

From the moment we got out the taxi to the moment we got back in we received the most amazing customer service from everyone we met. We were greeted from the taxi where our luggage was taken to our room, check in was fast and seamless. We were given a refreshing cold drink and cold towels. We were escorted to our room to ensure we were happy. We had a panoramic room and the views were amazing both day and night. The room was exceptionally clean and had everything you need (hairdryer, toiletries, minibar) and even some extras (robe, slippers). We had an issue with our safe on the first day where it was erroring. They couldn’t be more apologetic and got it resolved ASAP - faultless. We made the most of the rooftop pool where the views are just WOW. We had no problem getting beds any time of day - whether it 7am or 6pm. Our only slight niggle was the price of water around the pool - but we made use of the supermarket on the 1st floor. We visited mid March amid the Covid-19 Pandemix and throughout the hotel there is loads of hand sanitiser and temperature check points (pool, restaurant) which in the current climate was very reassuring and we felt safe. We dined at SEEN the hotel restaurant and had an amazing meal. The head chef came over to our table once our main had been served which was a lovely touch. Location wise there is very easy access to main transport routes we used the free boat shuttle (walk through the Anatara hotel to get to the pier) and took the boat to the main station (from here there are train routes or the hop-on-hop-off boat to the temples/local attractions). We had a lovely time and could not fault this hotel - we would definitely recommend and return if we came back to the area. Read less

Great service and facilities at the hotel. The location was also great for us, a little away from the main areas but with free ferry it was great. All rooms were rivereview and the pool and rooftop area was as good as the pictures say. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

We do not normally stay in cities so selected our hotel with care. We did not want to be in the middle of the shopping or business areas and the location of the Avani+ Riverside was perfect. Some say it is on the "wrong" side of the river, but for us that was a bonus because it meant we had an amazing view from our room. It was also surprisingly quiet and was an oasis in the middle of a very hectic city. I won't go into too much detail as other reviewers have said everything, but basically service is the best, The breakfast on the riverside were superb, and the concierge Best, Tina and Sofia recommended two great local restaurants food stalls around the neighbor. Leaving the hotel by taxi or hotel boat was all very easy as Aut, and Dong bellman do all the talking and give clear instructions all the time. We did not feel the need to have a guide. Thank you for your help and will be back. Read less
