Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok
Ranked #26 of 891 Hotels in Bangkok
Reviewed 3 March 2011

Spent a few days at this hotel in a two bedroom suite, very large suite with fantastic view of the river, very good value , excellent food, allthough surrounded by the city the pool area is amazingly quiet
with the only noise comming from river traffic. a great escape from the hetic city.

Well some sort of mixed feelings come to me when I think about the Chatrium hotel and Bangkok. Not as if the hotel was bad or good, but the experience was not the memorable kind that I expected as a no1 rated hotel on the tripadvisor website.
Most of all the downside part of the stay was certainly the location. Although the shuttle boat was at service every 15 minutes and it took you straight to the skytrain station, it was not that convenient as it should be. Still the surroundings of the hotel was not a place to stroll down in the afternoon. The overall experience in bangkok on the first day was not very welcoming, due to the scandals that pop into you with a friendly smile on their face and the tuk tuks that charge more than a taxi and even say they dont know where your hotel is after sitting and giving a ride and then leaving you in the middle of nowhere in the rain......Maybe the first impressions are the most memorable. And another thing to note is the pool that was not warm so could not have a swim to relax.
But the rooms were good, not very Thai style decoration seen, and only the essentials are used in the interior design of all the hotel. It seems that less is more was the decorators motto! Breakfast was not a big feast but certainly everything was in the best quality, also the top to floor windows in the breakfast area were a great start in the morning. The staff were very friendly and helpful but do not expect them all to understand and speak English! After all the experience was not bad but having stayed in many 5* hotels and resorts, certainly will never again pay a 5* price to a 4* hotel, even if the paying is for a great view to the river. The upgrade was worth it, having great views but still the overall experience is a 4* one....

As a travel agent, I am always looking out for great deals for my clients. Chatrium exceeded my expectations not only in location but also in service and accomodations.. The rooms (the nice staff showed me 3 different categories) are big and comfortable. The hotel restaurant offered good food and the Japanese restaurant nextdoor was convenient and also very good. The rooms with the city view mixed with the river view were awesome. All the staff we met were very helpful and professional. We extended our 2 nite stay to 4 nights the first time and booked again on the way back from Cambodia. Thank you Mr Art (desk Manager) for being so accomodating.

The free Chatrium boat takes you to the central pier where you can take a boat that stops at diffrent points of interests including the Royal Palace and important temples. Going shopping downtown? No problem - just take the sky train also from the same pier
It was so nice to "come home" to a wonderful place after a full day of touring.

PS - only suggestion: Hotel wifi should be free to guests staying more than 1 nite. It cost me a lot to get online --- good reason for my late review.

The rooms are large and modern, good maintenance. Helpful staff. You can get good help if you ask about the services of the hotel,they know little about general information (transportation, restaurants). The boat to central pier is a big plus. No free internet.

I fled to the Chatruim Suites after my other hotel in Bangkok had a rat issue. The Chatrium Suites was a beautiful breeze of fresh air. It was perfect. The hotel is absolutely stunning. The lobby alone is gorgeous. The staff Is very friendly and helpful. They speak English which was also very helpful. Our room was beautiful. And the view of the city took my breath way. We stayed on the 30th floor in the 1 bedroom suite. The room was spotless. It had a huge kitchen and living room and separate bedroom. The bathroom was very large and had a separate tub. The hotel was so comforting to come back to after a day in Bangkok. The restaurant was wonderful, especially the view and live music every night. It was a great way to end the day. There is a Starbucks also right next door which was very convenient. Overall, I had an amazing experience at the hotel and cannot wait to return.
