Viang Tak Riverside Hotel

Rooms at the long-running Viang Tak Riverside Hotel don’t quite stack up to Soho’s, but here you get a swimming pool, river views and a prime riverside location.

Photo of Viang Tak Riverside Hotel The huge ice-blue building is part of a larger complex that also includes a shopping centre, karaoke bar and restaurant with the sort of depressing atmosphere that some old-school Asian business travellers seem to like. Fluorescent lights and mirrors covering walls and ceilings in the long entrance hall reminded us of a North Korean hotel, and the dated lobby didn’t help.

Accessed by stairs, rooms come with decent beds set over wall-to-wall carpets, tables, fridges with minibars, TVs, hot-water bathrooms with tubs, generic Thai art and large glass windows. Be sure to ask for a room facing the river, as they’re no more expensive than the “city view” editions.

Set next to a concrete patio with river views, the medium-size pool looked enticing on a scorching April day. Buffet breakfast goes for 200 baht and staff were not overly friendly.
