This is our second stay at this hotel. Personally, I love this area of Bangkok. It is the old city with the temples, canal trips to Thonburi, trips to the flower market etc so close. Soi Rambuttri and Khao San Road are only a few minutes walk away - great bars, plentiful restaurants, cheap massages, tour operators, markets and a...

Even though this hotel is locked between a busy road and an equally busy ferry stop, we enjoyed this place because of it's good connections to Bangkok's tourist attractions, comfortable and clean rooms, and for that relaxing afternoon jump into the pool on the roof. This and the very friendly service staff would encourage us to stay here again! The...

Just spent 2 nights at Navalai. Yes, we arrived just in time for a soaking. Songkran was in full swing! Was hesitant because our room faced the street on 5th floor. My 2 boys and I (15 & 10) armed ourselves with water guns, made the most of Songkran spending the two evenings out and about getting wet and came...

So we chose the Navalai due to it's location and good trip advisor reviews. Overall, It turned out to be a good choice. There were a couple of negatives which prevented me giving a 5 rating; the room was extremely cramped with the extra single bed, making it a bit of a pain for a family, and the main double...

Great service, clean, big rooms and lovely roof top pool with views of the river. It's only a 10 min walk to Khao San Road, there are lots of good restaurants (like the Hemmock) and bars around. It's by the river, so you can get a boat straight to the grand palace, Wat Pho etc..

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.
