We stayed for 5 nights early December. On arrival the hotel doesn't look to impressive but once you are through the doors it's a lovely oasis. We booked a deluxe river view room which was spacious with a fair size balcony with nice views. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom was great. My husband ate breakfast a couple...

Stayed here 2 years ago and found it to be a well situated and welcoming hotel. Re booked for a 3 night stay back in May 2016. Arrived on Friday afternoon and the hotel seemed the same. Saturday and Sunday have been completely dominated by wedding receptions with limited and sometimes no use of the hotel facilities or restaurants. Was...

Looking out across the busy river, near lots of tourist places but not feeling too touristy. Safe to go out as a single female traveller. Attentive and kind staff. Tasty food. Room very comfortable and spacious.

Riva Surya is a bit more expensive than your average Bangkok hotel but the service whether at the front desk or in the restaurant is outstanding. The guy who handled our baggage later helped me with a flight snafu by contacting the airline and getting it solved! I can't say I've ever had a bellboy do that, ever. The hotel's...

This was a family holiday in Bangkok with my in-laws and my sister and the hotel choice was great given the personalised service we received. The staff was really friendly and nice and made our stay memorable. The river facing room with a fairly large balcony was a delight with great views of the river Chao Phraya. The breakfast was...

Tasty coffee, friendly, courteous & attentive service. The view over the river was splendid. There was a cool breeze and soft sun shine. The decor was pleasant and blended functionality with grace and traditional Thai arts & crafts. There was a feeling of harmony, comfort and graciousness.

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.
