Lording over the Chao Phraya River in postmillennial splendor, this flagship Hilton offers some of the city's most cutting-edge design, competing successfully with Bangkok's other long-standing hotel giants. The infinity pool hangs like a waterfall off the edge of the cleverly designed deck, an urban beach overlooking the city skyline. Towering above everything else, the 32nd-floor open-air roof deck, executive lounge, and chilled-out bar all have spectacular panoramas. Rooms are on the small side, but their setups compensate well enough for that, and bathrooms seem 22nd century. Every single room in the hotel has river and city views. The hotel is reached via a ferry service from the downtown riverbank at the end of the Skytrain.

This hotel is very lovely because of the views it affords. Its location right on the river provides a great perspective on the city of Bangkok. The location is nice, although -- bascially all of main attractions of the city are on the opposite side of the river. The wonderful, fast skytrain doesn't come near the hotel which means relying on water taxis and regular taxis. The hotel does provide a boat that will take guests across the river from
time to time but the skytrain is still far away. The rooms are fabulous and the bar on the top floor is very lovely!!!

The Millenium Hilton is a fascinating hotel, right on the beautiful river.We stayed there in november and we had a memorable vacation: our room was spacious and very well decorated but what amazed us was the incredible view, we enjoyed staying in the room watching the river activity with its different boats, really nice. The hotel is quite elegant and it has all we needed: a very smart pool, top class restaurants, in particular the steakhouse.
In the evening we went to the 360 bar on the top floor from where the town could be seen in its splendid night vision. We liked the free private ferry which took us on the other side of the river to Shopping malls and to the BTS (elevated train) station. After one week in this hotel we tried a private apartment on the same side of the river that we found in the high class website www.TheRiversideBAngkok.com and we have been very happy as well. Overall we believe that the Millenium Hilton is a really good place to stay in BAngkok by the river
