Stayed here on the last leg of our trip to Thailand. Hotel is in a great location, a short walk to khao san road and right beside a river taxi dock to take you anywhere else needed in the city to help avoid the traffic;) Rooms were very stylish and immaculately clean. Definitely don't hesitate to stay in this fantastic...

This small boutique hotel was recommended to me by a friend, and I am very glad he did, as i found the choice of hotels in bangkok a little overwhelming to say the least. A very central location, we found most of the staff in the hotel really friendly and helpful, except an incident on the first night. Having had...

Absolutely loved this hotel only moments from the excitement of Kho San Road. Breakfast was fine with a good selection of both Thai and Western Food. Rooms are spacious with wonderful views over the River (definately paying the bit extra). The only negative would be that the pool area is rather dull and not really inviting.

The Navalai (pronounced Nava - lie for the taxi and tuk tuk drivers) is right on the riverfront, the best rooms being the riverviews at the back of the hotel, but I stayed in a 'serene corner' which was to the side of the hotel and not so noisy. This is a modern, nicely furnished hotel with excellent clean facilities...

I stayed at the Navalai at the start and end of my thailand holiday, and I am so glad I did. It is the perfect location... just a copule of stops on the river busfrom the Grand Palace, and just a short walk from a great nightlife. But far enough away to be in quiet location, with great views over...

Stayed here for the first 6 nights of a 30 day Thailand holiday in January 2012. The Navalai is a very clean and efficiently run hotel on the side of the river.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
