Hit and miss - something were fantastic and somethings were awful. Room allocated had lights not working , leaky shower cubicle and big balls of dirt and dust periodically falling from inside the sink counter.

Hit and miss - something were fantastic and somethings were awful. Room allocated had lights not working , leaky shower cubicle and big balls of dirt and dust periodically falling from inside the sink counter. Food quality was also hit and miss but quantity was very generous. Some cuisines were super some not. If you book the garden view room, ensure you don’t get the one on the canal side as on some days the smell was just too intense and you can even open the balcony door which just defeats having a balcony. Otherwise a beautiful peaceful surrounding and very helpful service staff and gentle hospital nurses. Read less

Clean, excellent attention from the hotel staff, and specially, delicious food!!! In addition, there is a nice view to the main river of Bangkok. During the end of every day, you can see the boats travelling to transport diferent kind of freight from country side or to there. I really liked it.

I spent several days researching different places to do the ASQ as I required entry to Thailand to complete some business. Somehow I stumbled upon the Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort and so far (I am on day 7), I have been very impressed by the service, food and accommodation. I rented a treadmill, dumbbells and a yoga mat in order to maintain fitness. The pick up from the airport was very smooth and the entire process from check-in to arriving in my room was very smooth. The service is very nice. The staff ensure everything is okay during your stay. There was a couple times the meal I ordered didn't sit well with me (as I am not used to Thai food) and the room service team immediately replaced the meal with something I was happy with. All in all, highly recommended especially with the balconies and good internet speed. Read less
