We were actually 3 families who stayed there late June for 2 nights. The rooms have a good size and most of the rooms are facing the next building. Even though there was a lot of noise from the street and nearby cafe's, the room was quiet. (It was probably drowned by the normal noise from the aircondition). My problem...

The location is very good for us , because we like to wander around khao san road thats like a 5 min. walk. But also the hotel is near the river were you can take the river express. At the riverside there is a big terras with some good food. On top off the building there is a great swimmingpool...

The hotel is located on the river just at the boat station and this makes it convenient for anything near the river. It is down the short alley leading to the boat dock and has a Buddhist enclave for a neighbor, so that the rooms are very quiet at night. It is just a block from the Khao San Road...

The Navalai provided an excellent introduction to Thailand for our month long trip and was somewhat an oasis in the surrounding chaos of Bangkok that was a real pleasure to return to at the end of the days exploration. Location- The hotel is quite a distance from the airport (as is most of Bangkok) so expect a taxi to cost...

This was billed as a boutique hotel and certainly looks like it, but doesn't act much like one. The restaurant - all meals - were brilliant and the setting is excellent on the river front. The rooftop pool is extremely inviting too and the adjacent massage place was the best we experienced while in Thailand for two weeks - though...

Stayed At Rikka Inn for nites before transferring to Navalai River Resort. Excellent location as it is near to Khao San Road & Rambhuttri Road, where all the action happens.

We stayed here when we had a weekend in Bangkok. The location was good near to Khao San Road and next to the river and a ferry port. The room was smart and spacious with air conditioning and the bathroom was not too bad although a bit dated. The staff are courteous and friendly and there's free internet access available...

Our 5 night stay in June was just as good as our stay last year. Really friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable room, we were very happy with everything and will definitely stay nhere again. The riverview rooms are worth the extra money, its wonderful sitting on your balcoiny watching all the activity on the river.

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.
