We usually come to Bangkok for a one month stay and this year we decided that we would stay at The Chatrium. We have stayed in this area of Bangkok for around 10 years and we stayed at another very nice five star hotel just up river in their apartments.
We are past our half way mark of two weeks with another two weeks to go. The service is very good and the staff are very friendly. This is a solid four star property with the potential to be a five star very soon. The grounds are very nice and the pool area has a great view of the river. The dinner buffet is one of the best deals I have seen in Bangkok and we have been coming here long term for over 10 years. As an example the buffet tonight is lobster, flown in fresh and alive from Boston in the USA. For this all you can eat buffet is is 1000 baht! If you join their "Gold Card" membership when you arrive you will get 50% off your food, if your stay at the hotel is longer than five or seven days. Not 100% of the days for this, but it is longer than a two night stay. So tonights lobster buffet will cost us 500 baht per person!! Try that ANYONE else in Bangkok!!!!!
It is very easy to get to the BTS station at Sampan Taksin as their ferry leaves every 15 minutes and it is a five minute ferry ride. The ferry's starts at 6am and the last one is at 10.30 pm. They have the best ferry service of all the hotels that line the river that connect to the Sathorn Pier( BTS Sampan Taksin). We are in a lovely one bedroom suite over looking the river, facing up river so that we can view the weekly fire works, and it is cooler on this side of the building. It is very quiet here but easy to get around to the busier areas of Bangkok. By BTS it would take you 10 minutes to get to Siam Paragon from BTS Sampan Taksin. It is close to the expressway as well. We are dining tomorrow evening on the 36th floor at their Chinese Silver Wave. Very nice view of downtown Bangkok. In short, if you have been staying at the five star hotels just upriver from this location you should give this lovely hotel a serious look! We are so glad we did! Cheers
