Editorial review:

The main wing of this 800 room hotel offers spectacular river views from every sleeping room. This is a luxurious and comfortable hotel where families feel comfortable and kids can run around without feeling out of place. The modern Asian décor adds to this hotel’s understated elegance and you can also choose to stay in the Kung Thep wing where the rooms have lovely terraces that look out over the river. The may be your spot if you like elegance, without being overwhelmed by an ultra modern or overly ornate style.

                                • Lovely view and location, beautiful hotel, knowledgeable guides and reasonable prices. The secondary staff were excellent, concierge was friendly and very helpful, i booked an executive suite was very good indeed. Breakfast was nice as well, fresh fruit in the morning were wonderful touches and the swimming pool was a pure delight on a hot Bangkok afternoon.

                                  Value for money not appropriate, poor service and rooms of Club Floor a bit small.

                                • Clean and quiet beach, location is good, the hotel is luxurious, well staffed. The lobby has a lovely coffee shop, the staff are super friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and spacious and suitable for couples and families. The breakfast is great, one of the best spa I have been too.

                                  The swimming pool and its outdoor area are small and a little modest, very noisy at River side makes a bit difficult to enjoy balcony.

                                • Location is the best one, the bar just the by the river is amazing and you can spend hours out there, good value for money and a relaxed escape from the busy hectic Bangkok. Very clean and the decoration is outstanding, staff is great, complimentary water, in glass bottles, for using in the room. Restaurant is fine, pool is fantastic.

                                  Expected better from the hotel, also poor system for getting taxis and the streets had,sometimes, an awful smell, and the sheer number of people on the streets. Bathrooms are old, all soft drinks are included and the food never stopped.

                                • The location was great since was right beside the skytrain and hotel was excellent. The front desk was super, liked the way iced water was provided free at pool and the little fruit sticks, food and drink were very good.

                                  The variety of Thai dishes from room service was limited.

                                  The hotel was just old fashioned for us.

                                • Nice view of the river, excellent hotel and the very friendly and helpful staff. Room was kept very tidy and food was delicious. Dinner options were great and gym was decent.

                                  Too expensive compared to the service, no continental breakfast.

                                • Location is very convenient, the street leading to the hotel is pretty much dedicated to the hotel and the personnel of all levels is extremely helpful and polite. The rooms are fine and restaurants offer you any kind of food you can think up. The pool is nice.

                                  Dated decor and the staff were not always friendly. And my towel was a bit old looking/feeling.

                                • Live music in the reception area and linen high quality and the room decor was pleasant and well maintained. Staff were welcoming and just one compliant the bed linen was too hard and caused skin rashes. The food in angelini's was excellent.

                                  Worst service in bkk @ breakfast.
