We stayed at Riva Surya for 2 nights this December. Overall I'd have to say the hotel is very lovely. The staff upon arrival was very welcoming. We had a very long journey and the check in process was smooth and easy. The location of the hotel was perfect for us. Located on the river with beautiful views in the...

We stayed for one night and really pleased with the choice. We only had 24 hours in Bangkok so wanted to focus our time on Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Khao San Road. The hotel is well located for all three especially Khao San Road which is five minutes walk away. I wouldn't call the hotel super luxurious but it...

A really nice hotel with excellent service and very spacious rooms. All round we thought it was a great hotel and stayed again on our way home. In particular the pool area was very good, the location was very good and the rooms were amazing. It was best on the first stay because we were upgraded but the normal room...

We have spent few days with the family for our first trip to Bangkok. The hotel meets perfectly our expectations. Outside the huge buildings area, close to the main Wats, alongside the river for easy transportation. Staff is completely dedicated and always helping. They all speak perfectly English. Super kind with the Children. A five stars class for this boutique...

I stayed at Riva Surya with my sister for three nights and this was our first stop on our trip to Thailand - the hotel is beautiful, service is excellent, and it is a nice escape from the craziness of Bangkok. Location was walking distance to Grand Palace and Wat Pho (about 20 minutes), but we used a cab to...

Everything about the Riva Surya was a pleasure. From the cheerfully professional staff, to breakfast on the riverside terrace, we found a peaceful oasis in the middle of bustling Bangkok. The location was ideal, our room was comfortable and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This hotel is simply one of the best hotels alongside Chao Phraya river. Room with balcony overlooking the busy boattraffic is worth the stay itself. Close to a lot of facilities and restaurants in Bangkok. Staff is superb and the restaurant excellent. Riva Surya is our choice in Bangkok!!

My husband and i were at Riva Surya from Nov 3 until Nov 8, 2016. The hotel was beautiful and just what we needed after 26 hours of travel time. Loved the location - an oasis of peace right off the busy street. Beds were wonderful and we simply loved it.

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.
