My boyfriend and many of his friends have been staying at the Riverline when in BKK for years. I was introduced to this quaint guesthouse last year on my first trip to the city. It's been a well kept secret on the slightly older backpackers' circuit for a long time. It's quiet, safe, clean, and affordable. It is tucked down...

I'm really happy to find this guesthouse.. Clean, cheap rooms ( we paid 320 bath for a double room), near Kaosan road (5 minutes walk), but in a very quiet place. It also was 5 minutes from Tha Phra Athit (boat stop) and near it there were a lot of buses, easy to take and cheap.

The Guest house is in a quiet location , but there are small streams of Sewage near the House which release their bad odor. The Owner is relaxed but obviously does "suffers from farang fatigue" as another reviewer well described it . the good thing is the low budget and the rooftop

Quiet place near the river and several buddhist temples around. As in many accommodations in Bangkok the management suffers from farang fatigue, anonymous service and the only evident interest is in making money, which is normal in a business but here it is a little too obvious.

Another quiet few days at Bangkok Samsen's Riverine. Located on a lane parallel to the chaophrya river. The owner is a laid back lady and the place is kept clean but not spanking new. House rules avoid confrontation with the party crowd. Rooms are fan and a.c. at 180 to 350 baht. It has a large India type rooftop where...

This place used to be a gem, But these days it's a tired looking dingy place, with crap wifi , smelly towels and stained sheets. The staff just manage to be friendly enough. There is now many better options in this area, and Riverline has obviously lost a few loyal repeat customers, including me now.its not as busy as it...

Clean rooms good shower and a comfortable bed with air conditioning all for cheaper than some dorm beds. This place is good for couples on a budget. Also the rooftop makes this place standout from similar guesthouses situated in the same area

I had difficulty finding the place even after I had checked in and gone out again! The staff were very friendly and the room OK although the mattress was a bit hard. There is only WiFi downstairs too which was a bit annoying. The view from the roof of the river is great and you can sit down and relax...

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.
