An excellent choice for a hotel stay in Bangkok! First and foremost is their impeccable service! They will do whatever it takes to make your stay perfect. The breakfast buffets are wonderful. Their dinner cruise is intimate and the food and service are terrific. Dining in the Thai restaurant along the river was an experience, along with the dinner show that was provided! The room had a fantastic view of the river and the location was perfect. My wife and I stayed here 4 nights and found it to be one of the best! On the day a tour that we booked elsewhere fell through, the hotel concierge recommend Bangkok Journey, who provided a private driver and private tour guide (Dew) for a personal tour of the Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha, the Reclining Buddha, and the Temple of Dawn. It was a 6 hour tour with many behind the scenes stops that normal tours would not have taken .....I also highly recommend Bangkok Journey! Read less

This shows me that the staff was well-trained to always deliver service even though it was not her duty time yet. Also, the room we got faced the river perfectly as you see from a photo.… Read more
