The hotel

Overlooking the busy Chao Phraya River, this hotel is the place to be in Bangkok where you can spend hot days enjoying the riverside breeze but with many of Bangkok's famous landmarks just a stone’s throw away. An adjoining city pier offers complimentary shuttle boat rides to the nearest Skytrain station which provides easy access to the rest of the city. All rooms at the Royal Orchid Sheraton have a river view where you can enjoy watching the hustle and bustle of local life during the day and boats all lit up at night. Enjoy a good range of leisure facilities too, including a freeform swimming pool and Jacuzzi in tropical riverside gardens, a second lap pool, kids' pool, tennis court and an impressive spa. The hotel offers an array of cuisines in their four restaurants, including modern Italian cuisine, barbecue grill, international restaurant and of course a traditional Thai – quite a choice!

The high rooms in the towers have a fantastic view of the river, and the activity on the river is fascinating to watch. The bed was extremely comfortable, and facilities were acceptable, though a walk-in shower would have been better than the over-bath provided.

The high rooms in the towers have a fantastic view of the river, and the activity on the river is fascinating to watch. The bed was extremely comfortable, and facilities were acceptable, though a walk-in shower would have been better than the over-bath provided. Both outdoor pools were a boon at the end of a day's sightseeing, though the upper-level pool could do with some renovation. Food in all the restaurants was good, especially the breakfasts, and service was generally excellent. We would mention Tuk, in the restaurant, and her husband...one of the concierges. The only downside was on our last night's stay, when there was a large conference, which meant that the Riverside restaurant was closed to other guests. Also, the extra visitors at breakfast meant that staff were extremely stretched, and service suffered. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and would have no hesitation in returning...(though possibly check out the guest list!) Read less

As soon as I checked in I went for a swim in the beautiful pool, and then had lunch by the river. After dinner I used the spa (Chi Spa) in the hotel and has a facial and a head massage. It was very relaxing and I felt looked after throughout. The breakfast buffet was huge and very diverse! I would recommend this hotel and I would come back again. I would definately tecommend Read less
