I booked a two bedroom suite directly with the hotel for our group of three people. We were blown away when we walked into our suite on the 16th floor and found a living room with a balcony, full kitchen, 2 bedrooms (one bedroom had a balcony overlooking the river) and 2 bathrooms. Each room had a flat screen TV, fresh orchids were placed in vases throughout the suite, robes and umbrellas were supplied and there were temperature controls at a couple locations. We also had internet service.
We enjoyed the extensive and delicious breakfast each morning with both hot and cold items. The breakfast was included in our room rate. To add to our dining pleasure, the dining room overlooked the river – simply breathtaking!
As many reviewers have noted, the Chatrium is not in the middle of the action, but we really didn’t mind and actually appreciated the quiet location. We enjoyed the Namita Spa, ice cream shop, Japanese restaurant (for snacks) and convenience store all located in the hotel complex. It probably would have been nice to have restaurants within walking distance, but we planned sufficiently, so it wasn’t an issue for us.
If you have time, treat yourself to the Namita Spa. They provide gracious and top-notch service and their massages were among the best we’ve experienced. After a day of touring, it was truly a delight to pamper ourselves with such relaxing and perfect service. You could get massages at much lower prices elsewhere, but having the Spa in the hotel complex was a treat and added convenience for us.
The river boat shuttle that’s provided by the hotel to the sky train was another great convenience. The tour company that the hotel uses was wonderful! I had to book some last minute tours (at 9pm with the desire to take a tour in the morning). All tours offered are private. We were able to customize the tour with our guide to fit our family needs. We couldn’t have been more pleased!
The only thing that wasn’t perfect was the breakfast service. The people working in the morning could have been more attentive, but that’s a minor issue compared to the awesomeness of everything else about the hotel.
If you don’t mind a hotel that’s not in the middle of downtown Bangkok, I highly recommend the wonderful Chatrium.
