Are you planning a trip to Bangkok to eat and shop, but yet want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the big city? You can enjoy the best of both worlds, especially if you choose to stay in a hotel by the famous Chao Phraya River. If accessibility and convenience is also a consideration, Millennium Hilton Bangkok ticks all boxes.
Millennium Hilton Bangkok is situated in the historical Thonburi, a riverside district deeply-rooted in the city’s colourful past. The ever-developing area offers a diverse experience, from untouched local villages to iconic cultural landmarks.
One of Thailand’s newest and most prominent shopping malls – Iconsiam, and the BTS Gold Line Charoen Nakorn Station are just a 5-minute walk from the hotel.
The beautiful lobby was already buzzing with tourists upon my arrival.
Panoramic Executive Suite
The panoramic windows at the Panoramic Executive Suite offer the perfect spot to capture memorable images of the Bangkok skyline and the Chao Phraya River.
Enjoy magnificent views of Thonburi even in the separate bedroom with the king-sized Hilton Serenity bed.
The pool is actually the ‘under-rated’ highlight photo spot at the hotel as it allows you to “walk on water”!
It is also the perfect place for guests to chill on the lounge chair all day while taking in the magnificent views.
You wouldn’t want to sleep in and miss breakfast here as there is an extensive array of food options available at the breakfast buffet.
To complete the whole Millennium Hilton experience, indulge in the signature afternoon tea at The Lantern – the hotel’s elegant lobby cafe.
Apart from in-house dining, there are lots of local delicacies at Khlongsan Plaza. The ever-popular Never Ending Summer restaurant is also a stone’s throw away.
Train: To get around via the train system, take the new Gold line (Charoen Nakhon station) to (Krung Thonburi station), linking you to BTS Wongwian Yai station.
Boat: Take the river-crossing boat to Si Phraya pier and step straight into Charoenkrung district where you can find wall-art, galleries, landmarks and delicious eats.

A major new year countdown event occurs annually at Iconsiam, so if having a million-dollar view at the fireworks show is your thing, consider booking your stay at Millennium Hilton early to avoid disappointment.
