Service

  • It is important to note that the Chatrium is a big, busy hotel but even taking into account the traffic the Chatrium team always made us feel that we received great service.

  • Check in was quick and hassle free and done with a smile!  We just hopped across town but when you have arrived after flying for multiple hours a warm, sincere welcome make for a great first impression.  That is exactly what we received at The Chatrium Hotel Riverside

  • A VERY NICE touch we experienced at The Chatrium Riverside when checking in was a free cocktail of our choice from their welcome drink menu - local beers, a choice of 6 mocktails or 9 cocktails - we had Tequila Sunrises -  perfect on a hot Bangkok afternoon.   

  • We were impressed with room service both by how fast it arrived but just how good it tasted

  • The service staff in the River Barge were superstars!  So warm and friendly, we never wanted to a thing - it seemed every time we looked up there was an amazing Chatrium team member waiting there to assist us!  Well done team - we are impressed!

Verdict
