Riverfront Residences Bangkok4.0 out of 5.0

Overall fairly OK experience, but a considerable number of small and not so small drawbacks. The place is rather tired, with wear and tear affecting almost everything in the room. Rooms are spacious, quite well equipped with kitchen area. These high-rise buildings attract lots of pigeons, and the small inaccessible balconies where the air conditioning compressors are located were covered in a thick layer of guano and what looked the remnants of a long-dead bird. Could be unsettling for the sensitive spirit.
Pros first: 1) its very affordable. we rented the twin room apartment which had a large sitting/area, 2 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a/c in every room. the bathrooms had towels and all amenities. 2) they do have room service, but the time is fixed. We were late one night and we are vegetarians. When I told them my plight they were kind enough to send veg fried rice for us. Thanks so much 3) The sheets/ towels were clean. No bad smell, good view from our balcony 4) we got 2 bottles of complimentary water and tea/coffee sachets. 5) they do have a free shuttle service to 3 points in the city. If you can arrange your travel times with their shuttle times you might save some time/money in travelling 6) Staff is kind and polite. 7) Most important point: Do check the mall SV city. Goto the basement, we went on friday morning and there was a flea market going on. I got better deal and stuff in that tiny place than in the famous MBK mall. Also don't hesitate in trying the food court. It looks shabby, but they make most of the food fresh in front of you. I had the most amazing veg fried rice for 30 baht. My son had shrimp fried rice and on his request they made it without chilli and he loved it. COns 1) very far from all major attractions. we had a hard time haggling with taxi people. I paid 300 baht for wat arun, and 380 baht to airport. I blame the bangkok traffic which causes all taxi drivers to give something to complain about. We couldn't catch the hotel shuttle (we were running late) and had to travel on our own. 2) Its not a hotel, so remember before requesting extra water, towel etc. 3) No place to see nearby except the SV mall
It was weekend getaway with the family and we were very pleased with our stay at the Riverfront Residence. The apartment is spacious (even for 5pax), tidy, clean and full of natural lighting. The staff are professional and competent. Will definitely be back again the next time I visit Bangkok!
Riverfront Residence in SV City complex is a grand affair. We were in a 2 Bedroom Deluxe Apartment - perhaps the best option in the Residence. Its a huge 2BHK flat of 1000sq.ft with separate dining,kitchen and living spaces. Both rooms have great views of River,Rama III bridge and the surroundings. The views get even better after sundown - as the city gets lighted. Of the 2 rooms - one is bit smaller.Beds comfortable. Centrally AC with controls. 2 Toilets - one is attached and the other in common space. Nice shower. Its huge you can say. Maybe the decor of the interior could have been more better. Very ideal for families and friends with 4-5 adults and children. Reception very cordial and friendly. They guide you in going to different places of Bangkok. If you need a Cab/Taxi to go around - simply tell the reception and your taxi reaches in few minutes. For Public Transportation - Wat Dan BRT is a minutes walk - which will connect you to BTS. I find everything great in this Apartment - only the WIFI is not that strong. If you want to avoid the crowd of Bangkok and want to have great views of the River - this is certainly the place. But if you are more keen on marketing and nightlife - you have to travel distance to get the same from this area. I simply loved the stay and will return.
Really professional, happy and welcoming stuff, specially Pim and Fang receptionists. Big rooms with living room, bedroom, good wc and also dress room! Bar waitresses very nice and Cleaning services very good and respectful. I really recommend.
The staff was very friendly, it is the best point. But the location is very badly, this hotel is very far from all. Used taxi is very hard 50% dont want open their taxi-meter, often they want negociate the price. And when you want go back to the hotel from tourist places, they dont want (before hotel to far) or they negociate high price (300 to 500 baths). My advice, take the BTR (bus) station Wat Dam (just near the hotel) and after the BTS (subway) Sathorn station to Chong nonsi (BTR to BTS = bus to msubway) easy and cheaper. From the room, the river view on Chao Phraya is very short, I was very very disappointed. Finally , I would not recommend this hotel to solo travelers
Good value for money hotel ! The ambiance and view from rooms are great if you face the bridge side. Breakfast and Dinner do not have too many options. So it will be great to use it for cheap stay only.
Whenever I go to Bangkok, I always try to book myself into the Riverfront Residence. The rooms are spacious, the facilities are great, and the staff and treatment I receive there are excellent. For me, its location within Bangkok is perfect. Connections from Riverfront (1 min walk to Wat Dan on Rama III) to Chong Nonsi BRT/BTS (SkyTrain) are cheap (5 Baht) and quick. I particularly like the ability so store a bag at the Residence while I take trips to other areas in Thailand. Check for your name on the Welcome board when you check in. A nice touch!!
The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. The staff is great, they are always very helpful and friendly. you can get a massage delivered to your room, which is perfect after a day of walking around in the heat of Bangkok. It's true that this place is out the city centre but taxi are cheap and readily available.
This property is located at the outskirt and away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, even there's no subway or BTS station around and only BRT line available-thus quite a hastle if you have no transport of your own. It's more of a service apartment serving long term guest and the hotel is adjoining a dilapidated and old shopping mall whereby you can find some convenient stores and food court. The have small lobby with Chinese influence decorations, staffs were friendly, the room is spacious complete with small kitchenette. My only gripe is there's no water hose or bidet in the toilet, they used to have it as can be seen from the marking on the wall unfortunately removed for whatever reason. The view overlooking Rama III bridge is amazing however there's no chairs provided at the small balcony for you to enjoy this. Kudos to the security cum parking attendant who was very friendly and hardworking in directing our car to the proper parking position each time we return to the hotel, he deserved to work as a doorman or other customer service position than in his current position. I believe this hotel is most appropriate to those who doesnt want to be staying in noisy and crowded area of Bangkok and wants to embrace the more local feeling of the city plus the splendid riverview.
