We stayed two nights in this hotel before traveling to the South. After a long trip with a 10h flight we arrived in the early morning, but unfortunately our room was not ready to take a shower and change cloths. Check in usually is in the afternoon, but it is a bit of a torture if you cannot have your...

We had an absolutely wonderful experience here! I've been to Bangkok many times and stayed at various hotels and this was far and away the best. It's a great value with an unbeatable location on the Chao Phraya River near the Grand Palace, Khao San Road, and easy freeway access. The staff was friendly, helpful and very attentive. They helped...

We really enjoyed our stay in this comfy hotel. Great pool to laze by right next to river. Very good breakfast buffet. Staff were very obliging and the ladies on reception were helpful and informative with things to do in Bangkok. Very close to Ko San Road ... that can be viewed as a positive or negative! Only downside was...

I wish all places I stayed at where like this. From the moment you step out of your car and walk in until the moment you leave nothing but quality service. Rooms are modern and very clean. Pool is very nice. The food and drinks are good. Really enjoyed staying here. Katae at the front desk was very enjoyable to...

This hotel is great. The service from start to finish was brilliant. The river front location adds something special & the pool & bar give a nice break from the city heat. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

What has prompted this review is that we returned to the hotel at 3pm after a long hot day which started at 7am. We found the room had not been made up so rather frustratingly asked reception to arrange for us but returned at 5pm having waited around the pool for two hours. Unfinished. This slapdash service epitomises the hotel...

Took a cab from the airport and our printed directions were imperative to cab finding the hotel so make sure you bring with you. Check in was quick and easy. Cold drink provided. We booked a prima riva (I think) with nice balcony facing river. Room was very comfortable. We loved sitting on the deck watching the boats all go...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
