Stayed at this famous Hotel, with family, on return from Hua Hin. Lovely view of the river from the room, with luxurious fittings, fixtures and furniture. Everything in this place was par excellence--best of the best . Enjoyed buffet snacks and drinks at the executive lounge, with excellent view of the river.

This was definitely one of the most beautiful places in Bangkok where we have stayed. We stayed on the 27th floor (same floor as the club lounge) and the view from the room is just beautiful, you can see a big part of the city and you are right next to Chao Phraya river. The hotel provides a free boat shuttle to the other side of the river and to the BTS from where you can access almost everywhere in the city. We really enjoyed the breakfast at the clube lounge since it’s quieter than the main area on the first floor where you can also have breakfast and the view from the lounge is just stunning. The staff is super friendly and always ready to help. Highly recommend this place to stay in Bangkok since it’s well located with great facilities and the free boat shuttle to the BTS allows you to go everywhere in Bangkok without getting stuck in traffic.

Older hotel that is starting to show its age. Great location and amenities. Clean rooms and good staff. All in all good value. Hotel needs some attention from worn carpets to scuffed walls. I got a sense they were out of money. This could be so much more of a hotel with the right effort and some spending.
