We found a peaceful, restored palazzo just a 5-minute, delightful ferry ride from convenient public ferry dock. Lots to discover within walking distance, but taxis are available and cheap. Plenty of streets to explore on foot. It's a totally different world from modern downtown Bangkok where we spent our first two nights. The Praya Palazzo hotel staff was very accommodating....

This really is a lovely old building, the reception staff were great and the boat back and forward across the river is fast and efficient. What wasn't so good was the ridiculous price of beers...190 baht compared to 30 everywhere else...why? Also had to go looking for a waiter to serve us every time we wanted a vastly overpriced beer....

Bangkok is a mad place - in a nice way - crowded with people, tightly crammed buildings and traffic, so it was great at the end of the day to retreat over the river to this quiet little hotel in a restored colonial-style mansion. The hotel is completely inaccessible by road but provides a private boat that picks up from...

Staff was extremely helpful in booking transportation for our group of 7. Very kind and friendly. Great food. Located on the river and you use a barge type boat that will take to a pier in the city. This barge is on your call they give you a cell phone when you check in, and when you want to return...

Praya Palazzo is a restored colonial mansion, it is situated right on the river bank and really leaves you wondering if you are actually in Bangkok. If someone is on business or has scheduled appointments I would not recommend this property. However if someone is on a break or a holiday, then it is a fantastic place to stay. The...

I enjoyed the stay - but you'd need approach this hotel in the right frame of mind to have a good time. I guess if a large branded hotel business had restored this old river-front house then it would be like Marriott/Starwood/Hilton inside a classic-looking shell .... but this was a private restoration and so it's more like semi-restored Italian...

This hotel is inaccessible by road. On arrival you are issued a cell phone to use to summon the boat which ferries you across the river from a public pier on the other side. Rooms are part of an old mansion, so the walls are a bit thin. Perfect place to relax by the pool midday to,escape from the city...

As a local, it is good to see this old and abandoned building across the river from Phra-Ahit Road has finally been renovated and properly used. The service was excellent. The room was good though the wooden floor is a bit squeeky and the kettle could be much better for a hotel in this price range. But that's all I...

We've stayed at Praya Palazzo for 2 nights, very pleasant and nice place! Contrast to crowded and noisy Bangkok, crossing the river in 3 minutes you're in other world, calm, peaceful and very green! This is something in between real Italian palazzo somewhere near Garda lake and true Thai resort in some warm area like Phuket. Very good and relaxing...

Naturally you can stay in a big swish high-rise chain hotel in Bangkok, but why would you when you could book a large Indochine room in this small Italianate villa with a beautiful garden and pool right on the river where you can watch the Thai gondolas float by? Even in Venice it's hard to get your own private motorboat...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Praya Palazzo is a stylish 17-room mansion with a rich historical background that offers a unique experience for the discerning travelers. Dating back to the ancient kingdom of Siam, the mansion is situated in the heart of Bangkok on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Ideal for travelers who want to relax while enjoying city life in the oldest part of Bangkok, Praya Palazzo is in walking distance to many historical sites and attractions such as The Grand Palace, The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn), Chinatown, The National Museum, and Kao San Road just to name a few. Praya Palazzo brings back the sense and lifestyle of the King Rama V period, conveying authentic Thai culture through vision, taste, scent, rhyme and touch. We are proud to offer you personalized service with style but not snobbism, casual atmosphere but not neglect, high standards but not stiffness, simplicity and authenticity. We look forward to sharing with you the passion and love that allowed this residence to stand still today. ... more   less
