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.
