The hotel has a great view to river and price is great. 1st room was better and had been redone except no bath tub. So 2nd room had lower floor 6th with gross tub and great view room needs to be redone. Also staff never gave us wake - up calls and english was not spoken very well. Though staff...

We visited the Royal River hotel as a part of a tour. The lunch was a buffet with a nice selection of Thai food. Service was good. I do not believe that the buffet is open to the public, We arrived by boat as the hotel is on the Chao Pyra river.

This place is a bit dated but overall it was pleasant. It was hard to believe they didn't have a double bed. We had to get two single beds. But the hotel didn't seem busy. The breakfast was free and fine. The best thing was easy access to Yanhee Hospital and pier number 16 was a 10 min walk so...

Great hotel! Great staff, clean modern rooms, suberb room service. Very pleased and recommmend. Two improvement areas; Royal River should provide WiFi to all rooms free and electrical outlets should be in the bathrooms (not just for shavers).

It located bit far from the main street but still walkable (takes about 3-5 minutes) and near to 7-11 convenient store. The hotel is kinda 'royal old style' and the room was bit dark, but it was clean, wonderful river scenery and the stuffs also nice. If you drive car, there are parking lots available.

If you want to get away from the heat and hustle of Bangkok central then book into The Royal River and ask for a premier room where you'll get a huge bed and a balcony with a full, uninterrupted river view; this is the best bit of the hotel. The staff are very pleasant but incompetent; it's like staying at...

I recently stayed here for seven nights whilst on a working trip to Bangkok. The hotel was selected for its proximity to where we would be attending our meetings, an important factor given the amazing Bangkok traffic jams. To get into the city we took a taxi to the nearest sky train station at Victory Monument (about 80 baht with...

We always stay in rooms with balconies over the river. I do much with Peace Corps, which is a walk across the bridge, so the place works for me. BUT it is much more. The people are wonderful (okay, so they remember me from year to year), the breakfast buffet is great, the river taxi stops down a short walk...

I stayed here on businesses from July 10th to July 14th. Unlike what some reviewers have said, I found found the staff to be extremely friendly, extremely helpful, and the accommodations quite acceptable. The drive from the airport took 45 minutes by cab. It was 10 pm so traffic was reasonably light. If your cab driver gives you the option...

“Best rooms are at other hotels”
  • Many water or burn stains are on the sticky room carpet.
  • Dim lights at night are the only possibility-up to nearly a metre in visibility.
  • deep bath side holes for at least vermin and mosquitoes.
