Description & Location

Theatre Residence is a wonderfully unique hotel, both in its style and location. Contemporary clean-lined comforts seamlessly blending with a totally authentic and historic location in the old quarter of Thornburi and Rakangositaram. You are just a few minutes walk from the Chao Phyra River, Wat Arun temple and the Grand Palace directly visible on the opposite river bank.

Theatre Residence is built on the original site of the Patravadi Theatre, Bangkok’s first open-air theatre and centre for contemporary arts with many original artefacts decorating the public areas. Since the hotel opened it has been lovingly handed down through the owning family generations.

The airport is about 60 minutes drive away.


Theatre Residence has 82 rooms spread over 4 floors with the majority facing the garden courtyard.

You have a choice of:

Superior Rooms and slightly larger Deluxe Rooms.

The Premier Rooms are ground floor with direct patio garden access.

The River View Rooms are top floor.

Facilities and Activities

Many local dining options within a few minutes walk.

Great Riverside location perfect for exploring.

Main Swimming Pool - Restaurant - Smaller Kids pool

Theatre Residence is just the type of hotel Chic love to be associated with. Bangkok has so many great hotels, but Theatre offers comfort with the luxury coming in the real adventure of the area.

It will not appeal to everyone but, to us, that is part of the attraction. Think of the Gothic area of Barcelona. This is the Bangkok version, but maybe without the tourists! Perfect for the confident and curious traveller. Traditional market alleyways filled with stalls, klongs (river ways), local shops and restaurants.

We arrange airport transfers with the hotel and sometimes if the narrow approach road is busy, you will walk the last 50 yards – assisted of course – but that is all part of the experience.

For the right client, Theatre Residence will offer something totally different, giving you the opportunity to sample the real Bangkok with reassuring sleep-time comfort.

Next to the hotel, there is a school. You need to be prepared to hear children enjoying themselves, singing the National anthem and occasional playing marching music. It’s all part of the fun of the area. Just 2 minutes walk you have a very impressive temple and in the opposite direction a lively authentic market…

There is a metro station close by, plus a river jetty, so getting around is so very easy.

Although the Sandbox scheme has improved week on week since its introduction in early July, and most of the southern resorts have a high vaccination rate and low cases, the UK Government has chosen to look at the entire country and made it all on the UK Red traffic light NO GO area.

New Normal Pragmatism

The present traffic like system for travel introduced by the UK Government was maybe well-intentioned but has probably lead to even more confusion. So this is an attempt to clarify, in deliberately simplistic terms.
