The Navalai hotel has a lot going for it - great location on Bangkok's Chao Phraya River (terrific views and regular ferry access), convenient to the shops, cafes, pubs and massage places of Khao San Road area, reasonable guestrooms, good food choices, and medium sized roof-top pool. That's why we chose it again for a 3-night stay after visiting Burma....

Our daughter found this hotel simply by trawling the net. It looked good (although the promotional photos are probably air-brushed) and the experience was very pleasing. We have stayed in a range of hotels and this one with big rooms, well attended by delightful house staff, and at what was really a bargain price is among the best. The location...

The very best thing about this hotel is its location. 1) There is so much joy around Khao San (even for my elder mother); good restaurants and bars, souvenir sellers, foot massage etc. 2) The hotel is next to Phra Arthit (pier). This was very useful in two ways. We went to almost everywhere using the public boat which was...

Sometimes, it's all about the location, location, location, and Navalai's really hits the spot. Which is what attracted me to this hotel in the first place. It's across the road from a broad range of bars and hotels, and the better old-school Bangkok restaurants such as Krua Apsorn are only a ten minute walk away. So's Khao San, if you...

Although not one of the budget hotels, the Navalai River Resort is worth his money. Close to Khaosan, in front of the pier for the tourist and regular boat service on the Chao Praya which makes it easy to visit the famous Royal Palace, Wat Pho and others.

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.
