Montien Riverside Hotel5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Room was small, bathroom was okay. My room was at 26th floor and the view was beautiful but Bangkok misty weather was blocking it. Breakfast was okay. Wi-fi was terrible both due signal length and connection difficulties on its web site. Me, my wife and my daughter we were 3 but the p.word they gave was allowed to connect max 2 device. Cable connection was not working in the room for my laptop which I had to work :( It's and old hotel, needs to be renewed immediately even for wall plugs. Location was okay when the transport is cheap. If you want to run out from the hotel, try to drink a coffee at the backyard of the hotel.
The hotels is of very poor condition. Rooms and all public areas are old and haven't been renovated for several years. Staff is unfriendly and hardly speaks English. It was the worst hotel I've ever seen in Bangkok. Staff was even unable to book a 7- seater hotel. We checked out 2 days earlier, because we couldn't bear this place any longer. If you expect 5* star quality, this is clearly not the place you shall go to.
My husband & I have been traveled to Thailand 10 times and we stayed in Amari Watergate and Grand Diamond hotel all the times. Unfortunately they were booked and some body recommended Montien riverside but I never thought that a 5 star hotel would be like this. Unfriendly staff, small rooms, poor breakfast, far from city Centre , ...we had booked smoking room but they offered non-smoking room and when we smoked, they wanted to fine us2000 baht. We didn't pay and forced them to change room. We wanted to cancel our booking on first day , but they didn't accept. !! We were told because we booked via our Visa card and booking . Come, they wouldn't back out money and we should ask from booking !! I spent my holiday in this hotel by non- satisfied feeling. I never come back this old- fashioned and dirty hotel again. It's better that hotel manager spend some money to renovate hotel.
This hotel has a grand lobby area and entrance, however it I think it is let down badly by its staff who always seem to be way to busy to help you or raise a smile. We stayed in an executive suite and it offers few benefits apart from tea and coffee - the room is almost identical to the standard rooms and the executive lounge has no atmosphere or benefits - which is why there is never anyone in it. The location is very poor, there are no bars restaurants or shopping within walking distance and you need a taxi to get anywhere. We also found that few taxis wanted to return there in the evening due to its location...... The breakfast set-up is poor and the 'chef' who is there to cook eggs etc cannot cook - he pre-prepares everything (badly) with all fried eggs broken, over cooked and left warm..... very poor. He also cannot cook pancakes - once giving up completely, his efforts became so embarrassing my wife was ushered away back to her table and no pancakes turned up - the second attempt on another day resulted in the pancakes being raw inside.... The staff at lunch seem equally inept; we were there with another couple in an empty restaurant and waited 10 mins to have our order taken as the manager seemed more interested in trying to speak French to the other couple - when he did turn up (and also tried to speak French to us) he failed to understand our order (2 x Ham/Cheese sandwiches and a water) and then returned 5 mins later to ask us if we wished to order anything - he forgot us in those 5 mins. The swimming pool is badly located and only gets the sun in the morning and usually has a strong wind blowing over it - the pool bar area is poor and lacks charisma and is over priced. There are many better value hotels with much better staff and location in Bangkok and this one is poor.
Great hotel. The price is not the cheapest you can get but worth every penny. A bit older hotel with signs of needed maintenance which never the less did not affect our experience, comfort or services we received. The room was on the 25th floor with a magnificent view of the river. The location is very close to the Asiatique market place. They have a shuttle bus coming and going there and other places but for 60bhat (2$) that the taxi costs for the same distance, we did not bother waiting for the shuttle. Breakfast was great, good for western travelers and Asians as well. Lunch or dinner is not the best option for westerns since the menu caters mostly if not only Asian food. The pool was great and located in a quiet area of the hotel. very relaxing. A big plus is the huge garden at the ground floor by the river. You can enjoy the ambience there day or night. There is no where to go walking distance from there not unless you plan long walks in a part of the city that has nothing to show, The staff were polite and helpful but other than the concierge, cashier, receptionist and waiters everyone else speaks very limited English, their smile and good will though covers up and the experience becomes great. What I liked the most is the high ceilings of the public spaces and the classy elegant look of this hotel. Yes I would go again.
Gorgeous hotel with absolutely fabulous rooms-very spacious with a wonderful view of the river. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Restaurant staff did not have amazing English however the breakfast buffet was amazing! Pool is quite small but nice. Shopping arcade on the premises has a nice selection which is reasonably priced for souvenirs. Overall a very enjoyable stay!
Stayed for the third time in this hotel for a conference. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Matrass very good. Rooms are always cleaned very well and the staff in the hotel is very friendly. The food served for the conference was okay. The Hotel may be a bit old (e.g.no swipe pass for your room but a key. I can certainly recommend this hotel. If you are there for meetings then make sure you bring a sweater because the ballroom and other meeting rooms were very cold. Tip just across the road you can walk through an authentic very local neighborhood and taste Thai culture.
Well what can I say amazing to say the least , we had a suite with views from all sides of the river the room was absolutely huge with television in living room and also the bedroom , I can't find anything bad to say staff were lovely and polite , there is a free shuttle bus remember to book we went to the asiatique it was brilliant you can get a taxi back for 100 baht , we also went to khosaan road which was buzzing, there is a beautiful pool on floor six with free towels . Breakfast was fine with all the usual food very nice didn't have dinner . I would definitely stay again I really enjoyed it .
This is a great hotel to stay in. This has been my third visit. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are neat and clean, but the hotel is starting to show its age. It is probably time for a bit of a revamp.
we have stayed several times in the Montien Riverside, but sadly i think this will be the last time. Rooms are large, but starting to age, wifi connects and drops out, insecure open wireless networks maybe difficult to connect to. Breakfast is still one of the highlights as is the smiling and helpful staff. But this hotel is in need of a refurbishment to maintain its 5 star rating.
