Next to the fascinating Blue Temple, the Imperial proved to be an immaculate, modern, elegant hotel. Breakfast was excellent (Thai and Western) as was the one dinner we had at the hotel. Large,...

I loved that the hotel was on the side of the river away from the town, so it's quieter and more relaxing. We had a room on the fourth floor that gave us a beautiful view of the river. The hotel room was generous in size and very clean, Thai-style yet modern enough. The hotel itself was very well maintained...

We were staying 2 nights at the hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms spacious and clean, the pool oversized. The location perfect next to the river and walking distance to the no. 1 restaurant Chivit. Tv channels forgettable, breakfast like in a typical Thai 3 star hotel. The hotel is lacking any warm atmosphere, it feels...

This is neither Imperial nor it is a resort. The only truth about this hotel is it is on the river side. Hotel rooms are small, old and stinking. Bathrooms are not cleaned well and amenities in the rooms are very basic. The restaurant food may be good for those who prefer Thai food, but has nothing much to offer...
