Nice clean and comfortable rooms. Great service with professionnal and helpfull staff. Breakfast by the pool was very nice. The pool will be very appreciated after a day visiting Bangkok! Food at the hotel is good but bars and restaurants around are more for backpackers. Perfect location to visit the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, etc.

Location is great to browse local backpacker market and restaurants. Near public pier on the river. Hotel is classy and small. One word of advice: the rooms on the street side can be noisy at night due to nearby club music. Ask for a room on the river side, or if not available, as high as possible. The river can...

This was the first leg of our trip to Thailand and from the time we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Pui and Wit at the front desk are amazing! They were so helpful to us during our stay. Wit called the tour company I had booked online and had them pick us up from the hotel (our...

The Riva Surya is a beautiful hotel right on the river in Bangkok, close to all the temples and sights of Old Bangkok, as well as a boat taxi stop, making it easy to reach other areas of the city. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helped with any questions we had. Our room was big with a nice...

Great hotel situated beside the river and close to the evening market, nightlife and good restaurants. Can't fault the welcoming staff at this hotel from the moment we arrived to leaving. The beds are so comfortable, probably the most in any hotel stay. Paid for the breakfast for one day and was worth it. If we did not have an...

This small, boutique hotel is located right along the river (man made channel actually). It has a lovely view, a nice pool and our room was quite comfortable. We enjoyed the very generous buffet breakfast. It was easy to walk around the surrounding neighborhood or catch a TukTuk. The service was friendly. However, it was quite odd that upon checking...

Stayed here for just one night. Rooms were lovely, but the service was exceptional from all staff that we had contact with. Located on the river with busy streets all around this was a lovely oasis in Bangkok.

The setting for Riva Surya is perfectly charming. When I initially arrived late on Friday evening I was a bit concerned as the road on Phra Arthit is quite noisy with many outdoor cafes. Luckily as soon as you enter Riva Surya you step into an escape/oasis and can relax in the expansive lounge/pool area beside the river. We spent...

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.
