“Perfect little place to stay!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I have just come back from a weekend in Bangkok, staying in the River room at the Ibrik Resort by the River. It was better than I had expected, and due to low season, and maybe the recent miltary coup, my son and I were the only guests. It is a gorgeous tiny place, and the room we had was ground floor with a private balcony over the river with magnificent view over to the Royal Palace. The sloshing sound of the river is relaxing, and one has the feeling of staying on a boat! The room is clean and simply furnished and delightful, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. Breafast in the tiny courtyard garedn was lovely and relaxing. As I had a very late flight home, I was able to stay in the room for a low fee until the evening. It is a pleasant neighbourhood, and away from the noise and bustle of the rest of the city- a small oasis. Due to the curfew, we ate locally, and there is an excellent little riverside local restaurant around the corner , as well as several more westernised ones, and street food. Transport across the river is as simple as can be. I would love to return, and will recomend it to anyone I know looking for something other than a typical western hotel.
Thanks so much to the staff!

We are living in Bangkok business district, but wanted to spend a weekend at the riverside. Actually it was not much choices while searching for quiet romantic places outside the city - so Ibrik was one of them (we excluded big noisy hotels, etc.). The main decision making point was a private terrace over the river. And we got exactly what expected! It's actually not a Bangkok metropolis around the place, but rather a quiet area with a "province feeling". Narrow streets getting empty in the evening, school and temple around the corner - all this gave an impression of being far away from the city.

Room Tip: It's only 3 rooms and they are all different. 2 rooms have a riverview and a balcony, while one...

I had the pleasure of staying in the “Sunshine” room and the “Moonlight” room at the Ibrik Resort by the River for several days in early March 2014. The rooms were spotlessly clean, very comfortable and perfectly safe. The “Moonlight” room is smaller, cozy and quiet. As I was a solo traveler, it was perfect for me. The “Sunshine” room is larger, with a great view of the river; however, it’s not as quiet due to the sounds of the river traffic. For me, the sounds were not disturbing but rather they were simply part of the experience of life on the river. The Western breakfast served each morning was delicious and a great way to start the day. The three young men who staff the hotel are so very pleasant, kind and helpful. They are just the nicest, most accommodating people! The location of the hotel is in a typical Bangkok neighborhood – a bit off the beaten path but with great connections for river/ferry transportation. I enjoyed being in this location because there was a great local market nearby, as well as a couple of small restaurants serving delicious food and packed with locals at lunchtime (the only time they were open). This is also a “happening” area for street food stalls/vendors. I would highly recommend staying at this little gem of a hotel – for the comfort of its rooms, the helpfulness of the staff and the unique experience of staying in a typical Bangkok neighborhood.

Ibrik Resort has great personal service with a smile. We took a taxi from the DMK airport, our taxi driver called the hotel though I provided the sheet written in Thai with directions. Make sure you have the written directions and phone number. We arrived before 11 am, yet they had our room ready and we checked in to Sunshine room. Sunshine is on the second floor with deck where other guests do have access. We never ran into another guest, though they were one or more there during our stay. Guests are asked to leave shoes by staircase so we walk up the stairs and hallway without shoes. Once in your room, they do provide in-house slippers to wear. They also provide 2 bottles of water per day, bathrobes, safe in the room, little tv and breakfast to order served in the room or in the deck. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

Ibrik is between two ferry pier within walking distance. Wat Rakhang pier is closer to Ibrik and for 3 baht, ferry will take you straight across to Tha Chang pier. Once across, easy walk to Grand Palace and Wat Pho. We also enjoyed looking at the Grand Place during breakfast out on the deck and evenings all lit up. The other nearby pier is the Wang Lang pier. Wang Lang is part of the Chao Phraya Ferry service pier. This service cost more than Wat Rakhang to Tha Chang pier but still not expensive, I think it was around 10-15 baht.

We picked Ibrik for it's location but we would return not only for location but also for the friendly staff.

very friendly staff, very helpful. ideal place to explore neigbourhood, and close to the ferry that take you across where you can wander around on foot and see loads of interesting stuff. crossing is 3baht. you pay as you get our of the boat.
Ibrik has comfortable bed, beautiful, clean bathroom. and the view from the sunrise bedroom si absolutely interesting. we stayed at ibrik on new year's even and on the patio we watched the fire works, and the numerous boat passing by with music and lights. it was truly a beautiful experience. the only downside of the sunrise, is the patio in front of it is used by all guests. it sometimes make you conscious when in the bedroom, you might have to close the curtains for privacy, still I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to be on this side of Bangkok.

Room Tip: sunrise room is big and beautiful and has the balcony facing the river, but this is used by other re...

We are staying at the Ibrik Resort by the River. Though not a resort by my definition, the rooms are clean, air conditioned and it is quiet here on the riverside. The boat traffic is interesting to watch as we eat breakfast on the patio. The breakfast is Western because, as one of our hosts said, if you want a Thai breakfast, just walk down to the riverboat terminal. As first time Bangkok visitors who live in a small town both in Mexico and the US, we can go into the chaos and come home, an easy 3 bhat trip from the Tha Chang dock.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms here and the Sunshine is the best for a couple that likes to share the same bed. The R...

Ibrik Resort provided some of the best service we've ever experienced. This hotel feels truly "boutique" in terms of its small size and perfect location. The staff consistently went out of their way to help us and make our stay more comfortable. Just one example is that we arrived from an overnight train in the early morning exhausted and prepared to drop our bags and head out for the day. Instead, they welcomed us with early check-in to our room and fresh coffee. Their consistent attention to detail made us feel very special and helped us to relax during our visit. We also thought Ibrik was a good value, as its riverside location and views can only be matched by very expensive hotels in Bangkok. As others have written, BE SURE to bring the written taxi directions with you as you venture out in Bangkok, as it's a small place and difficult to find.

Room Tip: Moonlight room was beautiful. It's garden-view, but you can choose to eat breakfast on the "...
