New Siam Riverside

Our rating:

The most grandiose of the New Siam properties, New Siam Riverside looks rather humble next to the swanky Riva Surya.

A step up from its sister properties, the yellow building offers splendid views from the riverside rooms and the breezy swimming pool and restaurant, but we found rooms to be just adequate for the price. While they call this property a guesthouse, it’s truly a small hotel with a polite reception staff, CCTV cameras, tour desk and computer station. Rooms have some Thai-style wood panel walls and hardwood floors, but otherwise are similar to what you’ll find in a standard business hotel. While they won’t impress the fashion-minded, the beds are comfortable and expected extras like TV, minibar and safe are included. We also found the entire property to be immaculately kept, with hallway carpeting that still appeared new. Rates jump considerably if you go for a room on the riverside of the building, where only the priciest rooms have balconies for enjoying the breeze (large windows will have to suffice in the others). Especially considering a habit of consistent price hikes, the New Siam Riverside doesn’t strike us as smashing value, though it’s certainly not a bad option either. If you can swing the extra cash for either the Navalai or Riva Surya, they’re worth it.
