Reviewed 24 January 2014

Chatrium is exactly what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Great service, beautiful spacious rooms, amazing views and luxurious beds. It doesn't hurt to have a Starbucks and 7 Eleven on site. My wife and I had ordered the city view which was cheaper but when we arrived, they asked if we wanted to be upgraded to the river view which was $50 more for three nights (cheaper than if we had done it online) and we said yes. Best decision we ever made. 90 degree view of all river from balcony to bedroom (we got the suite). Pool looks amazing but we were there in January so a little cold for swimming (not heated). If shopping for jewelry, avoid the hotel staff as they have a deal with Chin Jewelry Company. We took the free shuttle ride because we had other things to do in the area but the Chin Jewelry Company is way too overpriced. Go directly to Ban Mo district as they sell more wholesale prices. AVOID the River Barge restaurant! You pay for the view but the food is pedestrian. They got my wife's order wrong even though she reminded them twice (she speaks Thai) and they sent out fried spring rolls when they were supposed to be fresh ones. When we questioned it, they said they didn't have them. Then why are they on the menu? The food was bland. There are amazing restaurants in Bangkok which are pretty accessible (don't travel during rush hour or expect delays 4 to 7pm about 30 to 40 minutes). Patio Restaurant in Sukumwit Soi 26. Amazing food and great prices. Chocolate Lava Cake for dessert! Not packed although they should be. Also Opus Wine bar in Silom on 64 Pan Road. Great italian and extensive wine list. Yes, the good wines can run $60 but you trade off with the food which is way underpriced for the taste. Make sure to add the truffled risotto to one of your selections. I gave the hotel 4 stars due to the restaurant, scam with the Chen Jewelry Co and we left at 4 am in the morning and the skeleton crew did not help us with luggage (they were late) and forgot to call our taxi (staff is usually VERY attentive). It could have been a big deal but our cabbie drove like a bat out of hell to get us to the airport in plenty of time. All and all, great experience and I highly recommend this hotel.

arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon after a long flight. the prople at reception were very helpful and switched on. gave us a free upgrade as it was my wifes' birthday. i emailed them that i wanted a cake and they made it for free !!!!. they had building work going on next door which is not the hotel's fault, but it was annoying !!!.
room was very spacious and nice. breakfast had a very good selection for veg and non veg. location was really nice and different. having stayed in and around sukhumvit previously i thought it nice to make a change. No issues whatsover

Room Tip: go big, dont be afraid to ask for an upgrade either.

From time to time the hustle and bustle of everyday living in Bangkok can take its toll so we look to have a night or two away in a part of town we don't normally frequent and just kick back and relax as tourists.
This time we chose the Chatrium and were very glad we did. From the moment we arrived (noon and our room was ready!) 'til the moment we left (7pm the next day as the hotel were doing a special deal where you could stay until as late as 8pm) we were well looked after and had a wonderful stay.
The room was incredible (we paid a modest premium for a river view) whih was a corner room (as most of the rooms facing the river appear to be thanks to the building's design), beautifully appointed, very modern and spotlessly clean.
The pool gets busy, but there appear to be sufficirnt sun loungers and if non are available, the ever willing staff manage to magic more out of thin air.
The buffet breakfast was as good as any hotel in this range with well cooked food and great choice.
We had the dim sum biffet in the hotel's Chinese restaurant and I will certainly going back for more. The Japanese restaurant in the adjacent building is also well worth a visit.
All in all, a top place to stay and when this old town starts getting me down I'll be back.
TIP: Pay the premium and get a room facing the river with a balcony. It is well worth it.

Room Tip: Opt for a riverside view

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning if our honeymoon..
After a long journey from Dublin, we arrived to the riverside chatrium, after a 20 min taxi ride, to the warmest if receptions. Staff were pleasant and welcoming. Our room was fab, spacious with a balcony overlooking the river/city which was fantastic.
The bed was great with the most comfortable pillows I have slept on..
We got room service to the room which was of the highest of quality, yum yum!!!!
The concierge was also greatly helpful to us when we were planning our day trips, thank you.
We tried to book this hotel again on our last 2 nights of our honeymoon on returning from the islands2 weeks later but as a testament to the hotel, it was fully booked up!!
Great stay, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

Nice hotel, was very busy for the 2 nights we stayed hereafter. Shinning of January. The pool area was super busy and not particularly relaxing with lots of kids ! (Although they I'd have a separate pool)
We had a riverside view room. Beautiful room, includes a kitchen area and was very spacious. The view was gorgeous. The only downside was the building work that was happening right below us. We were on the 32nd floor and were still woken up at 6am (!) to banging and building which was very annoying !
Breakfast is an enormous buffet. Lots to eat and choose from. I think I tried everything from dim sum to curry to noodles to bacon and eggs and I don't think I had anything that was remotely hot which was a shame.

The hotel offers a free taxi boat to the nearest pier which was great. Takes you directly to the sky train. This are only around 100-200 baht so nothing is very expensive.

DO NOT use the hotel airport transfer. They offer it for 1600 baht... It costs 350-400 baht from a metered cab at the airport, which is very easy to get.

I would recommend this hotel but not for a long stay !

Really loved that we were upgraded to a suite and had a perfect river view. Also, for the fact that the location is not only amongst other five star hotels, but is in Thai neighborhood as well.
Swimming pool was great, as were staff and service.
Food would suit western palate, though the Thai food was not Thai enough for my liking, but I have local tastes, so took the streets nearby.
Will be staying here again with mother and sister this time.
