Its a long way heading to the resort from Suvarbhumi Airport as we arrived during weekday peak period late evening. Hotel was located at Banglamphu neighbourhood ( North West Bangkok ) Once we arrived in the hotel lobby, it gives us warm hospitality feel with truly resort feel.

The very best thing about this hotel is its location. 1) There is so much joy around Khao San (even for my elder mother); good restaurants and bars, souvenir sellers, foot massage etc. 2) The hotel is next to Phra Arthit (pier). This was very useful in two ways. We went to almost everywhere using the public boat which was...

Sometimes, it's all about the location, location, location, and Navalai's really hits the spot. Which is what attracted me to this hotel in the first place. It's across the road from a broad range of bars and hotels, and the better old-school Bangkok restaurants such as Krua Apsorn are only a ten minute walk away. So's Khao San, if you...

Although not one of the budget hotels, the Navalai River Resort is worth his money. Close to Khaosan, in front of the pier for the tourist and regular boat service on the Chao Praya which makes it easy to visit the famous Royal Palace, Wat Pho and others.

Stayed here 2 years ago and liked it then, this time round I would say it has improved enough for me to give it 5 stars. A few things that made the difference for me was, 1. The breakfast is much better, the food was hot and fresh. 2. Free wifi, which may or may not have been available before...

I was very disappointed with our last stay at the Navalai and I won't return until they've sorted out the noise from the bars across the road. Until now the Navalai has been my family's fave mid-range hotel in Bangkok and I have stayed there at least a dozen times since it opened. This time we couldn't wait to check...

The hotel is conveniently located on the river, making it possible to use the river "bus" to quickly reach various locations across Bangkok, bypassing the city traffic jams. We booked it specifically for this reason, so that it was possible to easily visit the Royal Palace and Emerald Buddha temple. Upon check in, we were upgraded to "Scenic City View"...

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.
