          Stayed one night, lovely large room with river view.”
          We stayed one night on the 9th floor which was very spacious and clean. Had lovely views of the river and the bridge. The hotel is very quiet with large restaurant and outdoor dinning area overlooking the river which was very nice. Bell boys very helpful in arranging taxis, although you will need to use google translate as English is very limited. The streets near the hotel were not very nice and would not feel safe walking around there so we took a taxi to our Wat Arun which was not too far.

          Location, good or not?”
          I liked the location, but that because I wanted a hotel with a river view. If you want to discover Bangkok, it may still be good, as there are river boats close to the hotel, but then the location is maybe not that great. A little far for taxis to. I liked everything else with the hotel.

          Clean, amazing views, great breakfast ”
          Breath taking view of the river and sun rise if you wake early enough. Rooms are clean and to a good standard. I booked the premier river view room which had a balcony but no bath tub as advertised, and the staff kindly upgraded me to the 9th floor with a bath and dual aspect Windows on the room and bathroom. Having a bath watching the river was amazing! There are ferries that go from very close connecting you to khao san and all destinations. Cable tv had 3 English channels (not great viewing though) and the usb point on the tv had been disabled. Wasn't an issue as wifi was great so just used my phone. Note that no one spoke much English, but nothing Google translate couldn't sort. 24 hour room service available and quiet restaurant downstairs for dinner with reasonable prices. Included breakfast buffet was great, fresh eggs cooked to order, big selection of fruits, cereals, beans, potato, pastries, salad and Thai food. Also fresh ground coffee and pot coffee. I would stay again

          You can look out the balcony and see the city part far away. If you want to fine the quiet and romantic riverside place to stay, come to this hotel. Just some remark that the television can poorly used, and some staffs seems to look down on me, but for the overall room and scenery is great, real great!

          Beautiful Older Hotel ”
          Location, price, view of the river, and great staff
          The Royal River is an older hotel, but it's still mostly beautiful. The beautiful marble floors, marble wall bathrooms and wood work show that no expense was spared when the hotel was built in the 1980's. My stay was pleasant, check in was quick and easy and the staff was polite and professional. It is worth the slight extra cost to get one of the Deluxe River View Rooms, the view of the River and the City is great. The furnishings in the room, like the hotel were older, but very high quality and there was plenty of hot water. The price I paid was a very good value, especially on the New Years Holiday weekend. The breakfast buffet was basic but good.

          We saw many important sites nearby. Great view of the famous river of the country. The hotel was still renovating from the century's flood desaster but it did not have any effect on our stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and had the accommodation needed. The food by the river was great. And the service was very satisfied.

          Big rooms, comfortable and clean. Well priced for size and location, and well serviced rooms. Convenient location for travel.
          In general the hotel was quite good for the price range. The rooms are well presented and maintained, but do look a bit dated, could do with a refit. The room we stayed in was quite far from the lifts so that was slightly inconvenient. The buffet breakfast had lots of variety, but like many hotel breakfasts was a bit bland. Overall the air conditioning worked well, the rooms were quiet, and there was no intrusive outside noise. Basically if you're just using the hotel as a place to get a decent sleep at the end of the day it's very good and that's why I've stayed at this hotel on numerous visits to Bangkok.

          location is not good for a taxi ride, lobby far away from the main entrance, staff pushing hard to sale city tours
          the hotel is clean and well maintained, restaurant nice but the breakfast got only limited choice. Near to a river pier, so the river trip hopping to the city is recommended, which is much more convient and faster than the land transportations. Staff pused too hard to sale city tours and boat tours immediate after check in, which is quite uncomfortable.

          not centrally located, but no problem as the center is easily reachable by boat I did not like the food in the restaurant. Internet too expensive (200 Baht per hour), laundry very expensive.
          I very much enjoyed my stay at this very comfortable and quiet 3 star hotel. To the pier it is just 5 minutes walking distance, where you can take a boat to most of the important places in town for 10 to 13 Baht. The rooms are large and have plenty of lamps, are well equiped and very quiet. Also the bathroom was very nice and large enough. We also enjoyed the little swimming pool on the third floor. the internet at the hotel is very expensive(200 Baht per hour) but around the corner there is an internet cafe for 40 Baht per hour, also across the street a place you can have your laundry washed for 100 Baht per Kilo.
