Thailand is often referred to as a golden land, not because there is precious metal buried underground but because the country gives off a certain lustre, be it the fertile rice fields of the central plains or the warm hospitality of its citizenry. People come here as miners: first perhaps for the uniquely Western concept of …
Well, we finally made it. After 30 hours of flying and layovers we made it safely to Bangkok. Our short 1.5 hour flight from Calgary to Seattle was with Horizon Air/ Alaska Air. Tip for all you future travellers out there - these flights are not comfy. Use WestJet or some other airline. The rest of our flights (Seatlle to Seoul, 11.5hours and Seoul …
... leader. We were constantly impressed with his background knowledge and talents. Originally from the Philippines, Vaughn has traveled extensively. His leadership made so many parts of the trip easier, for example crossing the border from Cambodia into Thailand. I know that we could have done it without Vaughn, but he knew to avoid the noon hour rush, something caused when the Thai officials go on their lunch break, just ...
... morning, we took a short flight from Bangkok to the southwestern city of Trang. Once there we grabbed a minibus to Hat Yao Pier, where we hopped on a ferry to the island of Koh Lipe. Koh Lipe is a very small island in the extreme southwest of the country, so far so that it is basically in Malaysia. We holed up there for five nights, enjoying the soft white sand, incredible turquoise water, offshore snorkeling, and non-stop sunshine. I'd been ...
... We have been here when we were in Bangkok earlier on in our trip but didnt buy too much. We walk around and around. The place is like a maze there are so many shops its hard to find your way around. We manage to find everything that we need, last minute gifts etc and leave the markets after about 4 hours and train back to the hotel. We stop in at starbucks for a quick refresher and then quickly head back to oudr room, change into ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Montien Riverside Hotel Bangkok
We stayed at the Montien Riverside for four nights in June. We thought that it was a amazing hotel, incredible friendly service and great food. The hotel is a bit out of the way, but not realy a problem with the free shuttle bus and taxis are cheap and plentiful. The rooms are just bigining to look like they are ready for a refurb, but made up for by there size and the views. We will definatly stay there again.
It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel! The service is top notch! We enjoyed the time we spent here very much. Our room was perfect--overlooked the river. The laundry service was prompt and well done. The breakfast was varied and plentiful as well as delicious. The hotel provides transportation into Bangkok with a shuttle that runs on time and is air conditioned! Loved not being in downtown Bangkok due to the heat and humidity; not a problem for us even if we had to shuttle in or take a cab. The pool is really nice--attendants there to provide towels, drinks, whatever you want! Every member of the staff performed their job with efficiency and courtesy. The floor attendant was exceptional as well as the desk people. We would stay at this hotel again!
Ok, but far from everything
I stayed here in July 2004 and have made many trips to Bangkok and stayed in far nicer hotels. The hotel is very average and too far down the river away from everything. Our room was very unappealing and our river view was out to the side on some very unsightly building works. However the evening river cruise/dinner was superb and highly recommended with excellent food and cannot fault the staff. Overall it was ok but would stay at a hotel further up the river next time.
Great Service, Food, Rooms
While the location is not central, they do provide an efficient and free shuttle service to the Montien Plaza, right near Patpong and the BTS train. The buffet breakfast is fabulous (try the guava juice!!). The pool is nice. The rooms are terrific -- clean and new and wonderful. The staff cannot do enough for you, and they greet you after your long journey with a cool drink. A great experience.
Great place to stay. My son and I spent 4 nights here and we were made to feel so welcome by all members of the team. The warmth of the Thai people is well known, but this team is exceptional. From the moment the front doors is opened you feel genuinly welcomed. What an entrance it is too. So peaceful at night, a real place to rest. The hotel is spotless everywhere.
Oasis in BKK
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in february. The hotel is not in the city center of Bangkok but is an oasis of calm from a chaotic city. The food, service and grounds are very nice. they also offer a free shuttle downtown from which any location is an easy ride by tuk tuk or taxi. Great deal for the price.
Most enchanting service
Not in the middle of the (charming but) chaotic city of Bangkok, but nevertheless a nice location at the river. Shuttle-Bus service to the Montien Hotel in the heart of the city every half hour (reservation necessary) is not advisable during rush hour. Parking facilities for rented cars, car delivery service to the hotel available with most car-rentals.
Rooms are comfortable, service in the different restaurants and bars in the hotel is excellent.
Most friendly personel makes you feel at home after an exhausting day in the city... "Welcome back home!"
Very nice, subtle luxury
Wonderful hotel. Very clean, spacious room. Robes and slippers provided. Beautiful bathroom and shower. Spotless.
The buffet breakfast had a huge selection of food (warm and cold), very attentive staff.
Cheap and delicious room service (if you order the non western food)!
Outstanding and eager staff, greeting you at every entrance/exit to the hotel, elevators, room floor. The service you'd expect at Ritz-Carlton or the 4 Seasons.
It is a little far away from the city proper, but as another review mentioned, taxis and tuk-tuks are readily available. Average cab fare should be about 100 Baht (~4 USD) to most any central location (grand palace, silom, etc.)
Will return without hesitation.
Reception areas were beautiful, staff could not do enough to help and were always smiling. The room was spacious and very clean, the view from the window over the river was fascinating. Only downside was it was a bit too far away from the shopping and nightlife, but taxis or tuk tuk's were always available so didn't really cause us a problem. We stayed in 3 hotels on our trip to Thailand all were very good but this one was probably the best.
In one word: Unbelievable. I have been to alot of hotels with my family. They agree with me - nowhere we have ever stayed has come close to the Montien Riverside!!
