Spacious room with balcony in one of the best locations in Bangkok. Tasty breakfast with a beautiful view of the river, gentle reception and a tranfers and tourist agency underneath the hotel. The pool is smaller than it looks in the photo, but with so many options in the vicinity it is neither necessary. We asked for a side room...

This hotel is definately worth its price. Great location near all the major tourist areas, but far away enough so that you can avoid them. We got the balcony room on the roadside, and it's great to see everything buzzing by. Only downside is that the shower seems to have 2 settings, scorching or freezing.

We booked a balcony room overlooking the river after multiple stops at the pier and always commenting that we must stay here next year. The staff speak good English . The rooms are clean and the whole place is reasonably well keep . It's s little pricier on the river side but well worth it as you can enjoy your...

I have to admit that when I booked this, I was taken by the style of hotel and how it looked in the pictures. It actually was perfectly located. Right by the river, by a ferry stop and with its own restaurant and bar, I could not have asked for more. It was lovely sitting by the water in the...

We liked this hotel very much. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful. There is also nice restaurant with riverview terrace. Buffet breakfast was also very good, with nice variety of Thai and western cuisine. Great place to stay when visiting Bangkok.

Nice hotel, good breakfast, very nice river side restaurant, very good map position to visit all main points of interest in Bangkok by foot or by taxi. Nice nearby pedestrian souvenir shopping, bar and restaurants area. Nice hotel staff. Good shopping prices in the nearby corridor to access the boat terminal.

We were looking for a one night stay in central Bangkok at short notice and found Navalai River Resort that seemed to meet our needs. It's just a few strides from Pier 13 at the north end of the tourist river shuttle so meets many of our criteria for convenience. It's also within three blocks of the manic party-loving Khao...

Ee stayed at the Navali for three nights on this occasion and, yet again, it didn't let us down. This Hotel has just about everything you need for a stay in Bangkok and we would not hesitate to come back. Location – perfect. We used to stay over the other side of town but now prefer this area as it...

The Navalai hotel is located just minutes from the famous Khao san road, and also from temples and a lot of places worth visiting. The hotel is clean and sports a antique style and it has a pool on the top floor.The rooms are comfortable enough, with a reasonable bathroom. With that said, I expected more from the hotel's amenities...

We really enjoyed our 3 nights here. The hotel does not look very special from the outside/front but inside it is small, with lovely décor and friendly efficient staff. The entrance also leads down to the restaurant and the ferry stop on the river. The reception staff don't all speak English but are very helpful. The room was small but...

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.
