On the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the 36-floor Chatrium Hotel Riverside offers a peaceful escape from Bangkok’s city center chaos; its hip lobby, attentive service and modern, apartment-style rooms all lend a feeling of serenity. The giant infinity pool and outdoor Jacuzzi front the river, and the on-site seafood restaurants offer panoramic skyline views. There are convenient amenities aplenty: spacious rooms with kitchenettes, a fitness center, a grocery store and an ATM, so it attracts its fair share of business travelers, but this is a classy corporate crowd.
Bed and Bath
Starting at 646 square feet, even the smallest rooms feel spacious. Floor-to-ceiling windows let the light flood in, while thick curtains block it out when jetlag dictates a daytime nap. There are balconies off all rooms, and it’s definitely worth paying extra for a river view. Beds are comfy, linens are of a high quality, and all rooms feature kitchenettes and dining areas, should you wish to cook up a storm or bring street food back from the markets. Bathrooms are glass-walled affairs, which some will love and others will hate; eco-friendly toiletries are a definite win.
There are three on-site eateries, including the very popular top-floor dim sum Chinese restaurant, Silver Waves, and a snack bar by the infinity pool. Children are taken care of with two dedicated swimming pools and on-site babysitting services. The Nemita Spa offers traditional Thai massages — as well as less intense Western-style ones. Finally, a Starbucks and 7-Eleven are within stumbling distance of the front door, should you crave hometown comforts.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Chatrium Hotel Riverside for a total of 7 nights on our way to/from Khao Lak. We booked a 2-bedroom suite which was ideal for a family of four. There is plenty of space to spread out and the views from the balcony were simply superb. The level of service was also excellent and all staff were friendly and were keen to help us out whenever possible. The pool was a big hit with the children, and an ideal place to relax after exploring the sights. Overall, an excellent stay, and I would definitely stay here again.
Loved staying at the Chatrium riverside hotel. Spacious rooms with a nice river view and big pool. The staff were accommodating and very attentive. Will come back to stay here. Riverboat to bts station is a big plus.
