A review of the Montien Riverside Hotel Bangkok, a well-known luxury hotel on the Chao Phraya River. Though it has been around for a long time, it may not seem its old cheerful self, but they have still managed to maintain its standards for its room, food and services.

Cleanliness

Immaculately clean.

Sleep

Deluxe Corner River View Room at Montien Riverside Hotel Bangkok

Very quiet, with the availability of several pillows. A/C temperature is constant. Personally, I think the pillows were a bit too thick. But if thick pillows are to anyone’s liking, they should be able to get a good night’s sleep.

Bathroom

Spacious bathroom, with the availability of a bathtub and shower room. Comes complete with soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, and hairdryer. The only disadvantage is that there is no bidet cleansing hose for the toilet.

Power Outlets

Most of them are 3-pin plugs located by the working desk. There are no outlets by the bed.

Working

However, in reality, they have quite an extensive choice of food to choose from, which include food stations that provide egg menu choices, sausage, bacon, porridge, salad, fruits, bread, bakery items, coffee, and a lot of other choices.

But what impressed us was an incident where a large foreign father was hunched over in front of the coffee machine with his children;

Staff: Do you need any help, sir?
Father: Can I get hot cocoa from this machine?
Staff: So sorry sir, but the machine doesn’t have that item.
Father: Sorry kids…this machine doesn’t produce hot cocoa.
Staff: This machine can’t make it, but we can and will serve it at your table.
Father: Wow!! Thank you very much.

He laughed with delight.

The staff here are always smiling and were very polite. 5 stars to all of them!
