【Bangkok Hotel Review】Great riverside hotel !! Chatrium Hotel.

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 !!

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

Surprised Service
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
Common Space

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!

Living room

Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok Room

And next time I came into my eyes … this is a living room too large!


Chatrium Hotel: Kitchen in the room

There is also a spacious kitchen! The water put here is free! I can not see it but there is a microwave.


Chatrium Hotel: Washing Machine / Dryer

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!

Common toilet

Grand Suite Room: Shared Toilet

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

Living room

Suite: Livingroom

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 ◎!

View of the veranda from the sofa


Chatrium Hotel: River View Veranda

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)

Chatrium Hotel: A view from the room

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!

Night View

As you can see, the bedroom is large enough! On the left side of this picture …


Closet and valuables case

There is also a closet, with bathrobes and valuables cases in it!


Chatrium Hotel: Bathroom

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◎!

Bathroom, toilet and shower


Chatrium Hotel: Bathtub

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!

Rice in the room

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!

Chatrium Hotel
Breakfast buffet

Chatrium Hotel: Restaurant

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!

River Barge

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

Breakfast Buffet: Seats

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

Chatrium Hotel Breakfast Buffet

First of all, there is a dim sum near the entrance! Dim Sum is delicious wherever I eat!

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..)

Other more.

Breakfast buffet

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 !!

Chatrium Hotel: Breakfast

Let’s eat them!!

However, this is the only plate I took… I’m not hungry in the morning.

Chatrium Hotel 
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.

Main Poor

Chatrium Hotel: Swimming 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!

Children’s pool

Children's pool

This is a children’s pool and there are chairs around it so it’s perfect for families!

 Pool bar

Pool bar

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!

Welcome drink ticket: pool bar menu

The scenery from the pool

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

Chao Phraya River at dusk

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!

Annex Poor

pool in the annex

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!

Chatrium Hotel
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!


Landing Place
Chatrium hotel

Chatrium hotel landing place

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??

Landing Place
Sathorn Pier

Sathorn Pier

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

Time schedule of the boat

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!

Chatrium Hotel
Hotel facilities

It’s useful to have this near the hotel, isn’t it?? Especially, Seven-Eleven is convenient! The details are below.

Starbucks Coffee

Starbucks Coffee

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!

Opening hours

(weekdays) 6:30-20:00
(Saturdays and Sundays) 7:00-19: 00

Convenience Store Seven Eleven

Seven Eleven (Convenience Store)

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

Business hours

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!)

Opening hours



Chatrium Hotel
Other services

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!

Exchange money

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…

<Airport good rate>
¥1 = 0.2845 THB
¥10,000 = 2845 THB
<Chatrium Hotel Rates>
¥1 = 0.2676 THB
¥10,000 = 2676 THB

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.

Taxi Reception

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!

【Check】Airport Transfer Service


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^)/!
