“Oasis in bustling Bangkok”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

We stayed in the Ramada for a week in December 2011 including Christmas. We had two suites (got upgraded) which was excellent for us with 4 kids and 2 adults. There is a complementary boat service that runs every 30 minutes. It takes you to Taksin BTS station which which takes you straight into the center. The breakfast buffet served in the riverside restaurant is great with a great choice, the kids loved it. In the evening there is a riverside bar which unfortunately was being restored after the floods during our stay. The pool was clean but a little cold since it doesn't get any sunlight. Overall the hotel offers efficient service, is clean, at a good location and has an excellent breakfast at a great price.

Overall really nice experience- friendly hotel staff- always greeted with a smile. Really interesting and thai tasting welcome drink, nice honeymoon decoration with fresh roses and towel swan. Nice contemporary room decor, very nice river view and the complimentary river boat service was a definite plus- they transfer right to Taksin BTS station which is very convenient to go in to Central Bangkok and Shopping districts. The reception and lobby has a tasteful modern design. We stayed in a riverside deluxe room which had all the expected amenities- nice comfy bed, clean and spacious bathroom. The restaurant on the river where breakfast was served had a great ambience in the morning which makes for a great start to the day. The buffet breakfast was one of the best in Bangkok as well- lots and lots of variety. We definately recommend staying there if looking for riverside hotel.

Room Tip: We liked the river view deluxe room- good value for money.

Our first stay at the Menam Riverside. Good value for a hotel on the riverside, frindly staff, excellent location, excellent breakfast, good views, regular shuttle service. At times, the deckchairs around the pool tend to be all occupied. Dinner (a la carte or buffet) a bit expensive, but very good. There are many cheap restaurants within walking distance.

This has to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Upon arrival the reception staff were friendly and we were welcomed with a cold drink and warm towels to freshen up. Our room was located on the 4th floor with excellent views over the Chao Phraya River. Spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We unpacked, showered and headed out to explore. The hotel has a free shuttle boat on the river to Saphan Taksin station which takes a few minutes. The hotel is away from the noise of the main attractions of Bangkok but these are very easy to get to.
Breakfast is the best I have ever experienced for choice. It was lovely to sit outside in the morning on the river terrace and plan the day ahead whilst enjoying the breakfast and view.
The pool was clean and inviting although a little cold. I don't believe it gets any sunlight however it is a welcome relief from spending a day sightseeing in the heat.
Overall we did not spend much time at the hotel but I would definitely stay again. Efficient service, clean, good location and excellent breakfast at a great price.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room. Enjoy a tuk tuk ride late at night back to the hotel from the city.

My husband and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon travelling around Thailand. The hotel was perfect for our needs: in a wonderful location surrounded by little local streets with friendly food sellers where you can taste the great street food of Thailand. We liked the fact that there weren't lots of other hotels nearby: exploring the little sois at lunchtime, we were the only 'farang' around, and everyone was very friendly.

Hotel free boat shuttle is great, running every half hour to and from the Saphan Thaksin pier, where you can change onto the Skytrain or local boat-buses, to explore the whole city easily and cheaply.

The breakfast buffet was BRILLIANT! absolutely loads of choice of both western and asian dishes (including indian and chinese too, along with japanese and thai). Lovely dining room overlooking the bustling Chao Phraya river.

We had dinner at the hotel on the first night, in the Terrace restaurant. It was nice thai food but pricey compared to the cheap tasty treats you can buy on the streets behind the hotel.

The pool area was very clean and relaxing after a hot day sightseeing. Sunbathers beware: the pool is always in the shade, but you can catch some rays up on the riverside.

Over all we would really recommend this hotel as a decent base in Bangkok. The service was excellent, the food good and the communal areas very nicely decorated. However, in our opinion it is a solid 4 star hotel, but not a 5* luxury hotel as they try to market themselves. The rooms are very clean and smart, but do look a little dated and as such it is not a true 5* hotel. But if you're happy with this, then it's a great choice.

Couple of tips about Bangkok, if you're only there for a couple of days before heading south/north to explore the country:

- The Grand Palace is really stunning and worth a visit despite the tourist hordes.
- Also make sure you get a thai massage at Wat Po temple, a real experience!
- Be brave: use the river boat-buses and the crazy little canal boats too, to avoid the dreadful road traffic.
- We didn't think Jim Thompson's House was much worth a visit, other than for the experience of riding on one of the busy little canal boats...

Room Tip: Go for a river view, great t wake up to the sight of massive barges and tiny longtail boats ploughin...

The staff at the Ramada Menam were so pleasant and helpful and added to the pleasant surroundings. We had a riverside view room which also overlooked the pool; it was modern, clean and quite luxurious. Breakfast was an extensive international menu ranging from local to European, Indian and healthy eating choices. Positioned on the river, just a tuc -tuc ride away from all the attractions. Great choice at a competitive price.

Room Tip: Riverside is great

Stayed in Ramada Plaza Menam Riverside end of Nov.2011 for 3 nights. It is a nice, stylish, modern hotel, respecting the Thai and Bangkok tradition. With a nice pool and restaurant, it will definitely be a good choice for you! Well located, close to most touristic attraction, Ramada Hotel is a choice to discover.
