The 7 hour time difference and lack of sleep caused the previous day to merge with this one. After an afternoon sleep we went to the Asiatic centre for an evening meal. On the menu for me was hot king prawn soup with boiled rice and then I had fresh mango with sticky rice and coconut ice cream. Delicious. Did see and hear some protesters today but all was peaceful.
We arrived in Bangkok very tired...our trip: Heathrow, Frankfurt, to Bangkok took about 14 hours.
As usual no sleep on the aircraft and up for 11 hours before we flew out meant a very long day indeed. .
Our plan for Bangkok is ."don't do to much" ... just rest up to make the last leg a little easier.
We will leave the Hotel around 9 o' …

The Queen Saovabadha Snake Farm was more of a circus than a farm. As usual, half the fun was getting there. We walked a block from our guest house …

We took a budget Air Asia flight to Bangkok from KL and stayed for one night at the Holiday Inn, superior room, for free on Matt's reward card points. What a swish hotel! What a contrast to every other place we stayed on the trip so far. Put my feet up and watched movies (having a television was a novelty) while Matt went for another brutal massage …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
THE MENUM IS ON THE RIVER A SHORT FREE BOAT TRIP FROM THE SKY TRAIN STATION.
THE HOTEL IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND THE FOOD OPTIONS ALL WONDERFUL.
WHILE A LITTLE OUT FROM THE CENTRE OF BANGKOK THE TRANSPORT SYSTEM MEANS THIS IS NO REAL CONCERN.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Plaza Menam Riverside Bangkok
I spent six nights at the Menam Riverside, which is located slightly south of Downtown Bangkok on the left bank of the main river. The hotel has recently undergone a main refurbishment, which was unfortunately not fully completed on arrival although promised at the time of booking. The lobby is breathtaking and designed in Thai tradition, while the pool area offers a lot of comfort and relaxation. The building itself is still a shame, and only a few rooms have been upgraded. They're spacious but pretty old featuring an expensive minibar, efficient aircondition, a boring view depending on your location and an uninviting bathroom with a tube. Furthermore, there is a strange smell in the rooms, which can be removed by operating the aircondition regularly. Hallways are dark, and elevators sometimes needless due to approx. 18 floors serving.
Having booked for six nights in a Thai Suite back in January this year I was a little worried to see the hotel still had renovations work going on. An email just before I left in mid Oct assured me I would not be distrubed by any noise.
Good hotel but too far from Skytrain
Nice enough hotel, stayed 3 nights in a room with a great river view. Room service was good, likewise breakfast in the restaraunt.
Staff very friendly and provided very good service.
Bit far to walk to the Skytrain and getting a cab took almost as long as walking.
We spent the last 2 nights of our holiday in Thailand at the Menam Riverside hotel, and for around £60 per night we had a River view suite on the Royal Thai floor (a floor with separate check-in facilities and lounge with free snacks and drinks available). I have to say we were made to feel like royalty. Our room was amazing, we booked through the hotel website and got one of their special deals which included free transfers Airport-Hotel-Airport, a free buffet at their Seafood River Terrace restaurant, late check-out (which was greatly appreciated as our return flight to the UK was at 1 am) along with a long list of other extras. It seemed that we had been upgraded for free to the next room type up, this is normally only offered if you stay for 3 nights or more.
I appreciate what the previous post says about the hotel being a little dated but would reccommedn the Menam to others. This is because the hotel overall provided excellent service and brilliant amentities for the price.
Very old and needs update
We've stayed there in November 2004 during Loy Kratong. The lobby was very nice and welcoming, but the rooms were something else. The bathroom ceiling was old rotting wood, the bed sank when we sat on it, the carpet had strange stains, and the furniture were all very old. I would not stay there again. It did not feel clean.
