We only stayed for one night but this hotel was beautiful. The rooms were large and well-kept and the beds were super comfortable (which we found hard to come by in Thailand). The staff were wonderful and the pool area was gorgeous. We had a city facing view, but our friends had a river view room which overlooked the pool & river and was lovely. We didn't eat at the hotel at all, but our friends said it was underwhelming. They let us check out a couple of hours late which was very helpful for us.

This is a 5* hotel. The hotel has great authenticity and ambience with a great location. The rooms are comfy and well appointed and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is on the main river near a popular pier and the canal so we have travelled to all the main temples and the Grand Palace quickly and cheaply. The beds are comfy and the showers are amazing. The patio and bar are lovely- there really is nothing to not love! We travelled with 3 kids and loved the welcome from the staff and the decor. A real gem!
