What a great hotel. From the moment you walk in everything is first class. While you are checking in, they offer you tea, which we drank as it was pretty hot out. We arrived early, so dropped our bags off which they had no problem holding for us, and then we went and did some sightseeing. They called us when...

We stayed 4 nights at Riva Surya to do a quick sight seeing visit. The hotel staff are lovely and really helpful if you want advice or bookings checked etc. The pool is due for renovation, but a great place to cool off and watch river traffic in the afternoon before heading back out! We had a river view room,...

Lovely hotel with a really nice atmosphere and helpful staff. The pool area was great and it was lovely to have the views of the river, particularly at night. The rooms felt very boutique. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed here twice during our 3 week vacation. The hotel is really nice and the staff really friendly and helpful. We took a riverview room and the view is beautiful. Also you don't hear any loud music from the street. The hotel is located near the backpacker area which makes that there are a lot of restaurants, bars, cafes...

Lovely hotel on the river, in an area with lots of backpacker hostels and guest houses. Many cute coffee places and bars near by, and a short walk to khao San road with lots of local shops and places to eat. Rooms were spacious and clean, lovely balcony to sit and enjoy a morning coffee too. Pool area also great...

We stayed here for 3 nights and booked a river view room & balcony - really nice view and spacious room (room number 212). The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food here was nice too. You need a taxi to get to all the main sites though, max 20/25 minutes. Recommend taxi by meter - tuktuks are a...

This hotel is in an excellent central location in Bangkok, next to the river and with a swimming pool. The service levels were good and the food (breakfast and dinner) was excellent. The rooms were big and we would recommend asking for the riverside rooms.

As the others have said: great service, very pretty pool area, large clean and attractive rooms, nice bathrooms, in a great safe location with access to the river and the local sights, good buffet breakfast with dining with a view (although the food cost is a bit too high- you can go across the street too) and very close to...

Riva Surya was a really good hotel and with the pool and outdoor bar and restaurant it felt like a mini resort. The rooms were large and fairly comfortable. The people who worked there were very friendly and helpful. The best part about this hotel is the location. We stayed at a few that were more downtown, closer to all...

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.
