  • cheapish hotel out of town

    by

    Recently stayed here, and although the hotel is somewhat dated and does need some refurishment, i found it very comfortable. The room was massive and had a large balcony overlooking the river. TV in room, bathroom needed some refurb but again was large and ok.
    the hotel is in an older, part of town, but most of the sites can be reached using river 'taxis', with orange flags that are very cheap. The hotel also offers a free boat trip down the river to Wat Arun.
    Room price included breakfast which was very good, with good choice of /thai and European food.
    \had evening meal outside, overlooking the river and the food was ok.
    Staff were generally very friendly, apart from lady who worked on reception, and looked permanently harassed!
    This hotel is used by a large number of coach tours, but there was never any noise problems etc.
    there are fridges in the rooms, so you can squash some purchases in it. there is a small supermarket at the hotel gates, and ATM, which are very handy.
    the hotel has a pool which i did not use.

    Unique Quality: The main feature of this hotel is that it overlooks the Chao Praya river.

    Directions: on the 'wrong' side of the river in Thonburi.

    Great Hotel on the Edge of the City

    by

    We were very pleased with our stay here. The room, and the hotel for that matter was extremely clean and kept up. There was a full-service, affordable restaurant located in the lower level of the hotel with "Buffet" style dining.

    Roomservice was very inexpensive and the food was better than most. Try the lambchops.

    Unique Quality: Because the hotel is located on the Chao Phraya river, we were able to secure a river taxi that picked us up right at the hotel. It was very affordable and took us on a tour of the canels, the Barge Museum and finally across the river to the Royal Palace. I can't recommend this enough. It gave us a very interesting look into some of the neighborhoods and lifestyles of the Thai people.

    Directions: The Royal River Hotel is located right on the western bank of the Chao Phraya River, or the "River of Kings". The hotel is only 30 minutes from Bangkok International Airport.
    Please see their webpage for detailed map and directions.

    Average hotel, but far far away from city

    by

    When I came from the airport, the ride took me 2 hours. Qin Qin was feeling very sick in the cab. When we arrived, to our disappointment, we were given a room with only a side view of the Chao Phraya River as we had booked "Superior River Side". Thus if you want to see the whole river, you must book Deluxe River Front which is around THB 2000.

    The next morning when we want to go to the city (Siam square area) for shopping, we realised we have to take 1hour taxi to get there. The ride is around 250baht, which is a whopping 500baht back and forth. Another way to get to the city is take river ferry to go to Saphan Taskin BTS and from there take BTS to Siam Square. The river ride was not 30 minutes as claimed!!! It is around 50 minutes. 30 minutes ride is for private hotel river ferry that has only 2 timing, one in the morning and one in the evening. The pier for royal river is N16, and the BTS is N1. Oriental and Penisula hotel is N2 and N3.

    Not recommended. We were really cheated by the bell boy also. If you are the type into shopping, never stay here. But if you just want a good rest, then it may proved to be a good stay, away from the busy city. If you into shopping, my recommendation is to stay into kritthai mansion which is 4 minutes from National Stadium.

    Also, very few taxi know this hotel. The buffet is average.

    Unique Quality: Outstanding far.

    Directions: Royal river. Saphan Kruntong.

    The Royal River Hotel

    Its just beside Chao Phraya River. Just accross the river is the Dusit Zoo.

    Unique Quality: Friendly staff and good rooms.

    By North American standards this is probably a 4 star hotel, it's also pretty centrally located, and although it's not very cheap by Thai standards, you can get a very nice room (with a river view) and a full breakfast buffet for around $60CAD a night = $40US.

    Directions:
    It's located along the Chao Phraya river which makes it very easy to get around by boat (translate as 'get around Bangkok traffic and pollution'). There's a River Express Boat stop about 5 minutes

Bangkok - very convinient to the Main sights!

by Homanded about Royal River Hotel

Wonderful, affordable hotel. Just 1 block away from the river taxi.
Walk around the corner, hop on a taxi and avoid traffic when traveling to/from the main Wats and Temples in Bangkok.
Also; water taxis more affordable than regular taxis and a better way to see the local people.
You can be riding on the water taxi with office workers, ever yday people and even a farm animal or two.
Def. recomend this hotel.
Try to request a room with a view facing the river on an upper floor.

Bangkok Riverside Accomodations

by bulldogtwo

There are quite a few riverside hotels to choose from as well as price range, from the Oriental at 5 stars and for many years voted best business hotel in SEAsia, to low budget at 20$US a night. I have added a couple web sites that you can choose a hotel from by location as well as read some of the reviews which I like to read. Reviews by other guests are always good.

Has anyone stayed at the Royal River Hotel? Child friendly? Breakfast OK? I noticed it has it's own water taxi shuttle but wondering if it is near public water taxi? Thanks for your responses-
