Location of Millennium Hilton Bangkok

Millennium Hilton Bangkok is located along Chao Phraya river, and opposite side of the main Bangkok region so you need to cross the river to reach. This time, I used the boat service but you can also use BTS.

To take boat, please go to Saphan Taksin station by BTS Silom line. Once arrived, go through exit No. 2 for boat pier.

Normally there is free boat service by Hilton hotel but it is closed due to limited service by Covid effect. When I stayed at Millennium Hilton at Songkran holiday, I could use free boat to Icon Siam next to Millennium Hilton.

Boat service to Hilton is closed as of August 2021.

Other hotels also offers shuttle  boat services.

I took Chao Phraya express boat for 15THB.

But this time, it was also suspended since Icon Siam is open only for supermarket, pharmacy and food delivery, This is because quite less customer expected to visit the mall. So If you want to use free boat from Saphan Taksin station, please confirm in advance with the hotel

Instead, I used regular Chao Phraya express boat service to Icon Sam. Fare is 15 THB only to next boat station at Icon Siam.

Icon Siam shopping mall at 7:30 am.

Passed Icon Siam then going to right side, only 5 minutes walk to Hilton.

Entrance of Millennium Hilton Bangkok.

Walking through shopping arcade and event hall building before hotel reception.

Tailor, traditional artifacts and clothes shops are along the way but all closed.

Hotel facility operation information shows restaurant and executive lounge is closed but offers take out food for in room dining only. Other facilities such as gym, pool and spa is closed.

Check point for temperature and alcohol gel sanitizing before entering the hotel.

Entrance and lobby area for the hotel with high ceiling.

I Arrived at the hotel reception at 8am actually very early from scheduled check in time. At first, hotel staff told me that I need to wait until 10:30 am for the room to be open but as a result of negotiation by my request, staff can offered me the different room so that I can check in immediately.

A day before, I already checked in and selected room by Hilton Apps. The room was automatically upgraded to King Executive river view room from originally booked King Deluxe room Upgraded room is situated from 24th high floor only and has access to executive lounge room access. This time lounge was closed so I can get only take out food from restaurant area for lounge service.

Breakfast is also offered in-room dining only. At the check in time, I was asked to fill in and select the menu for breakfast until 6 pm. You can choose American breakfast or Asian (Thai style) breakfast.

Here are my choices. I ordered Asian breakfast with additional plain yogurt.

Let’s go up once received the key from the reception.

I like the hotel interior of Hilton, their atmosphere is gentle and calm to be relaxed. Unlike Hilton, Marriott brand has many different concept hotels. I stay sometimes at Marriott group so I will update next time.

Room is on 27th high floor.

 

King Executive river view room

Room size is the standard at this hotel.

Great Chao Phraya river view from the high floor room. All rooms in this hotel are river view but I recommend you request to assign higher floor room so that you can enjoy the widely stretching river view from the room. And if possible, it is more preferred to have room for Icon Siam side so that in case they have event like fireworks, you can enjoy it from the room.

Walking around Hilton hotel after check out

After I checked our from the hotel, I walked around the hotel then went to Krung Thonburi BTS station to go home.

Supermarket at the ground floor of Icon Siam. Icon Siam has partnership with Takashimaya, one of major department store in Japan so you can find wide range of Japanese authentic products.

Only supermarket and food stall is open at this time. Other area is blocked.

Blocked way to 2nd floor.

Some restaurants food can be taken out by prior delivery order.

Seven eleven gold color lol.

There is sky train available just in front of Icon Siam. This time, I preferred to walk to BTS station Krung Thonburi.

Walking under the Gold line to reach Krung Thonburi station from Icon Siam around 20 minutes.

Here comes BTS train station. it costs 44 THB to go to Onnut station to go home at the day.

Ok, that’s all for my stay experience of Millennium Hilton Bangkok. From September 1st 2021, all restaurant can be open in Bangkok and other dark red zoning areas. I will visit this hotel again then report you the restaurant and executive lounge next time.
