The Royal Orchid Hotel is a five-star hotel on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. Very nice staff - they let us into our room at 10:00 in the morning, which was just what we needed after a 13-hour flight. The room was very spacious with a large window facing the river. The view was beautiful, especially at night. The bathroom was large, too, and everything was very clean. Great breakfast with everything, even ice cream! There are also several restaurants in the hotel and a casual terrace overlooking the river. The downside - the wi-fi is free only in the reception area and it costs five dollars an hour otherwise.
