Second trip to Thailand Bangkok!
Second time staying at Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok！！
Why choose this hotel again because there is a nice pool overlooking the Chao Phraya River!
This stay was really special …
How…They upgraded my room to a grand suite!!
As it was a filial trip to my parents-in-law, I had nice memories thanks to this upgrade…!!
The people at Chatrium Hotel did their best, so I would like to leave everything at the Chatrium Hotel here! I took many photos so I want to put all!!
Service, Facilities, Location…everything is great!! It’s a 5-star hotel, but Reasonable!
This is the Chatrium hotel !!
★ 5 Star Hotel ★
Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok
The Chao Phraya River, which flows through the capital city of Thailand, is surrounded by numerous tourist attractions, skyscrapers, and hotels, one of which is “Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok”.

Please look at this “Bangkok map”!
The second hotel from the bottom along the river is the Chatrium Hotel!
As you can see, it is just outside the river and has easy access to the city!
The BTS (train) station “Saphan Taksin”, and the boat landing “Sathorn”, which serves as a foot to the temples “Wat Arun” and “Wat Po” in Bangkok,
The two are at close range and the Chatrium Hotel is 5 minutes by boat from here! (There is a free pick-up boat from Chatrium Hotel!)
Furthermore, it is 5 minutes by tuk-tuk to playground “Asiatique” of the night!
So very convenient to go anywhere! The location is very good!
Address and Map
28 Charoenkrung Soi 70, Bangkholame, Bangkok 10120, Thailand
Grand Suite Room
I arrived in Bangkok this time around 6 a.m. And I arrived at the hotel at 8 o’clock. It was not time to be able to check-in naturally …
When I get off the taxi from the hotel, the staff will keep our luggage and I will be taken to the reception. So we went through the check-in procedure. And they checked in there immediately.
There was a surprise proposal from the reception staff there!
“The originally reserved room can not be entered until 14 o’clock, but if it is a grand suite room in the annex, you can be entered immediately.
There are two more rooms in one room, each with its bathroom. How would you do?”
They proposed early check-in and upgrade to suite room at the same time!
Originally I booked one room for parents and one room for me and my husband. Each room is a river view.
but if there are two more rooms in one room, it’s perfect! Also, the suite room has a river view!
So I decided to get the room changed, and I was immediately taken to the room.
This is the Grand Suite Room (river view) located on the 31st floor of the 36th floor!
Grand Suite Room
Actually, it was a suite room when I stayed last time, so it was a perfect room with a kitchen, a living and veranda …
This time it was a great room more than before!!
First I opened the door and saw it in front of me.
It is too large a shoe shelf! It can put on an outer, but of course there is a closet in each room!
And next time I came into my eyes … this is a living room too large!
There is also a spacious kitchen! The water put here is free! I can not see it but there is a microwave.
Even more…There was a washing machine and a dryer in the hidden door of the kitchen! Anybody was sweating a lot in boiling hot Bangkok, the washing machine was a big success!
There was a shared toilet beside the living room! There were a total of three toilets in this Grand Suite Room, so it was not a battle for toilets in the morning ◎! lol
It looks like this when you look at the living room from the veranda! Too broad ~! Much bigger than my home in Tokyo !! It seems to be 250㎡ in size!
The fruits are free on the table!
If you sit on a sofa and look at the veranda, you can see the city of Bangkok from the window. There are rooms on both sides of the living room, and each one is separated like this, so the sound was not bothered at all ◎!
It looks like this when you enter the room and look at the balcony! There are two rooms, here’s a bit narrow. The suite I stayed in last time had a table and chairs on the balcony!
View (from 31 floors)
Here is the view from this balcony! The view is beautiful because it is a high floor! I could see the city as it was a room with a river view!
And this is the night view of Bangkok! Both the river and the town are splendid and beautiful!
Around the pink bridge is Sathorn Pier and Saphan Taksin Station!
Grand Suite Room
Here are two Bedrooms on both sides of the living room! The living room was large, but the room was large enough!
Bed (1kings size, 2semi-doubles)
Next, I show you each room! There are two rooms, one with one king-size bed and the other one with two semis double bed!
As you can see, the bedroom is large enough! On the left side of this picture …
There is also a closet, with bathrobes and valuables cases in it!
And here is the bathroom with each room! It’s Wide～!
Here are the toilet and shower. The shower temperature control is a little difficult, but the water pressure was enough◎!
There are many plays in Bangkok, so quite important is there has a bathtub or not! There is a bathtub so that we can extend the leg.
I forgot to take some amenities but there are basic amenities. There was no element of bubble bath..!!
This is the Grand Suite Room! It may have been transmitted how large and the special room it was!
I was tired on the first night, I bought chilled rice and drinks at Seven-Eleven on the premises and ate in the living room, but it was also fun !!
I thought when I came last time, Seven-Eleven is delicious in Thailand! lol
I love prawns chilled dumplings!
I could spend the time I could talk to my parents who didn’t know Thailand, and I could also have a meal like this…The three days I spent in such a feeling was the best and I have remembered my life!
Well, next time, see the wonderful breakfast buffet of this hotel!
Even when I came to the last time, there is a good impression that the breakfast here is plentiful and good, but then two years after the whole round … it was a wonderful thing that exceeded the last time!
You can have breakfast at the “River Barge” restaurant, which is straight from the reception on the first floor.
Breakfast opening hours
Breakfast is from 6 am to 10.30 am! at the River Barge Restaurant.
guided to the seat
If you are booking a room with breakfast, you can get a seat by saying the room number and name at the entrance! You can choose the seat either inside or outside!
Inside is cool. But it’s cool in the morning even if it’s the hottest in May. So I recommend eating outside! The Chao Phraya River will be a pleasant breakfast on your side!
Breakfast at the side of Chao Phraya River will be a pleasant time!
From here, take a look at the food in the breakfast buffet!
Warm dim sum
First of all, there is a dim sum near the entrance! Dim Sum is delicious wherever I eat!
Freshly cooked Pho
In the back is Pho! Here you can choose your favorite ingredients and sheff makes me a fresh Pho! Two years ago there was no such Pho! By the way, this Pho was delicious!
Choose freshly cooked eggs
Not only Pho, but They also make freshly cooked eggs!
I got an omelet! It was delicious!
What the… Maybe It’s Ingredients of Chine type rice porridge..??
Salad, dessert, hand-rolled sushi
he table in the middle also had vegetables, fruits, cheese and hand-rolled sushi!
Yogurt & Fruit
Tropical fruits are delicious no matter what you eat!
This is the Bread stand! There is a rotary microwave for baking bread, so you can eat warm it. How to eat a large bread.. grab it with the cross on the table and cut it. Put it on the plate just for the amount you want to eat ! (I saw what Westerners are doing so !! It’s not wrong, maybe..)
There are a lot of other types of meals, but I just only took the fashionable tomato. lol
What else there are. Bacon, Wiener, Curry … Oh! I do not remember that much! Because I can not eat so much in the morning, I did not look in detail! Sorry!
Take what you like and have it !!
Let’s eat them!!
However, this is the only plate I took… I’m not hungry in the morning.
River View Pool
Now I would like to introduce is my favorite place, a pool at this hotel!
This hotel’s swimming pool is located on the 6th floor and overlooks the Chao Phraya River! The pool is big enough, there is a pool for children, a pool for a little warmth, and a pool in the annex where I stayed! Main building pool.
We went into the swimming pool in the main building! You do not have to bring your towel out of the room. Towels are provided here anytime. There are enough chairs, so I think you can sit somewhere even if it is crowded!
This is a children’s pool and there are chairs around it so it’s perfect for families!
There is a pool bar, where drinks and liquor, ice cream and popcorn are on sale! There is a book on it too!
When you check in to this hotel you will receive a welcome drink ticket, one for each person, which can also be used here! It is this drink that can be selected by the welcome drink ticket! I had to Coke … but it was nice to have the Chatrium Punch!
The scenery from the pool
Take a look! Here is the Chao Phraya River is seen from the pool! (It was great if the river wasn’t brown!)
Sunset from the Pool
In the daytime, you may feel like ‘It’s normal..’, but … This pool shines at dusk of 18-19 o’clock! The sunset in South Asia is beautiful in orange and purple, but at this hotel you can see the sun fall over the river. You see, it’s so beautiful!
The Chao Phraya River can not be seen from here as the main building, but it is vacant !! If you want to be quiet, this is recommended!
However, there is no pool bar in this annex, and maybe there aren’t always enough towels …
Pool opening hours
The pool can swim from 6:30 in the morning to 8:00 in the evening!
Free Pick-up Boat
It is fun to play in the hotel pool, but Bangkok is also fun in the city! You can even go to Wat Pho or Wat Arun in the city by boat!
To do so, first, You must go to Sathorn Pier. The Sathorn Pier also has the Skytrain (BTS) station “Saphan Taksin Station”.
And this Chatrium hotel has a free boat to that Sathorn Pier!
▼Let’s go through the garden!
You have to go through the nice garden of this Chatrium hotel to get on the boat! I like this garden. Many fish are swimming in the pond, and wild squirrels live in trees and bamboo. The road is always clean as there is staff cleaning.
You can sit on the bench while waiting for the ship, or cool in the shade, or look at the river from a little square. This garden is calm and pleasant!
This is a boat dedicated to Chatrium Hotel! Boat regularly go and come between the hotel and the Sathorn Pier. It is about 5 minutes by here to Sathorn Pier. It is quite near!
Take a boat and you will see the whole view of the Chatrium Hotel. It is a tall big hotel! The front is the main building with the reception and breakfast restaurant pool, the middle is the annex where we stayed, and the back is the residence where local people live. It’s a new building next to the hotel… wondering what will be built??
Here is the Sathorn Pier. The boat of the hotel along the river which is not only a Chatrium hotel stops here. I think that there is no mistake because the name is written on any boat◎!
Boat Time Schedule
It is the schedule of the boat, put around May 2019 which I used. Perhaps I think that every season ships out at this interval (about every 15-30 minutes). You can get this schedule table when you’ll check-in!
It’s useful to have this near the hotel, isn’t it?? Especially, Seven-Eleven is convenient! The details are below.
Starbucks is located on the first floor of the annex. Unexpectedly, I did not use it, but please go here if you want to drink coffee!
(Saturdays and Sundays) 7:00-19: 00
Convenience Store Seven Eleven
There is Seven Eleven near the entrance on the hotel premises, it is convenient! “Seven” is all for the Japanese people, there have more and more stores opened in Thailand! (There have been seven here for two years ago!)
By the way, the Thai lunch box and chilled dumplings sold at Seven are quite delicious ◎! This rice and dumplings cost around 30 baht(US$1)! SINGHA-beer 35 baht (US$1.15) per bottle! Food and drinks are cheap!!
However, in Thailand, the time to sell alcohol is determined by the law, so be careful! (Between 11a.m. to 14p.m. and between 17p.m. to 24p.m.) And also want to be careful … the only mango was not delicious (Why) lol
24 hours, nonstop of course◎lol
Massage ‘Namita Spa’
There is also a massage in the annex basement of the hotel. Although the price depends on the part and time, it about 400-1400 baht (US$13 – 46), I think that the guest has certainly got a discount. I will put a pamphlet here… ( but there is a cheap massage area near this hotel, there are 100 baht for 1 hour ( US$3.3)! Super cheap! Please see the last related article for details!)
Lastly, I will write down all the other things I would care about! I used it in May 2019, so I think it may change depending on the season!
・ About Wi-Fi ・ About money exchange at the hotel ・ About booking for return taxi is about it.
You can get Wi-Fi! It is the speed of Wi-Fi that is comfortable, no problem at all ◎!
Passwords are different in the main building and the annex, but when staying in the annex, information on the main building Wi-Fi is also given!
It is okay if Thai baht is not enough! You can exchange money at the hotel reception!
But after all the rate of the airport is slightly lower than a good place …
However, compared with the place where the rate is good, the hotel is a little inferior …
How much was it…
Difference 169 Baht approx. 590 yen(¥ 1 = 3.5THB)
→The difference about US$5.5
The loss is about one meal at a restaurant in Thailand? It is better to exchange money at rates as well as possible, and it may be better to use it when you run out of it.
If you say “How to get back to the airport”, it is better to have the hotel call a taxi! I used to go and go back and used a taxi, but I was able to make a reservation at a rate without ripoff and no extra◎!
You can book a taxi at the counter near the end door of the main building. When you say “I want to make a taxi reservation” to the person at the reception desk, you will be asked “room number, date of reservation, time, type of taxi”.
By the way, the price was decided, and it was 700 baht (US$23) for the 4 people Onebox type that we got from the hotel to Suvarnabhumi airport.
If it’s a regular type, maybe 600 baht (US$19.6) … (I’m not taking it, but when I was asked hotel stuff, and she said the regular type taxi cost is 600-700 baht !)
I think it’s good to book your return taxi here!
If you want to take more Comfortable…
If you are worried about a taxi, you should book a transfer service in advance! I fought with a taxi driver … lol, I used the pick-up service, it was comfortable!
It has become quite long, this is the Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok! It is a nice hotel, and I think I will stay here again if it is my third visit to Thailand.
Thanks to the upgrade this time, I had nice memories with my parents!
If you are concerned about this hotel and arrived on this page, I will do my best to recommend it to you ~＼(^o^)／!
