Reviewed 25 January 2012

We stayed in a River View Room and were impressed about the furnishing of the room and of the whole hotel. The breakfast buffet contains a good range of Asian and continental components and even serves picky eaters. The rooftop bar is a perfect place to relax after a exciting day in Bangkok and also to wait for the end...

We used the Navalai River Resort as a base when we landed in Bangkok and in between going to Laos and a Thai island and it was perfect for what we wanted. It is well run, well staffed, immaculately clean and in a convenient, pleasant riverside location with a pool on the roof and a more than adequate restaurant. It's...

If you want to visit Grand Palace, and some of the other historical monuments in Central BKK it is the right place. It is also near to the river, so you may utilize the boats as an conventient transport alternative. The rooftop terrace is great, and it is a fine bar / restaurant on the river side.

We have just stayed for 2 nights at the Navalai. We loved the location (the hotel's restaurant is next to Phra Athit pier), it is only 10 minutes walking distance from Khao San & Soi Rambutri and the rooftop pool is a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing in Bangkok. Furthermore if you follow the walkway along...

We stayed at the hotel last year and asked for the same river view room which were given upon arrival. The bell-boy actually recognized us. An amazing ability the Thai people have to recognize people although they must see hundreds of people every month. We love this hotel because the room is very nice and very, very clean.

We stayed here just before Christmas on our way to Koh Tao and we were delighted with the hotel.

We were at the sand bagged Navalai in mid-November. Their restaurant had been moved to a temporary location in the entrance walkway since their normal location was underwater when the tide came in.

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.
