Comfortable bed but the room is showing signs of ageing. Ripped duvet cover. Stains on arm chair. Good breakfast. Lovely staff. Especially those at breakfast. Not what I expected but rooms on the river come at a premium. I wouldn't stay here again.

This is a very good hotel. I would is a little small but good quality. Service at front desk was good, facilities are clean and it's modern. The breakfast is expensive in the hotel. You can go to the next door hotel (also called Riva) and have breakfast for almost half price. Massage service at the pool is not that...

This was my first trip to Bangkok en-route to Phuket and we decided on Riva Surya due to the good reviews it had on trip advisor. The Riva Surya is mid budget hotel (around £100 per night for a river side room with balcony) and is extremely well maintained, located and offers great service. On arrival the hotel is set...

Staying at Riva Surya is a vacation in itself. The rooms are appointed in a smart blend of modernity and tradition, and the terrace outside the city-side rooms provides sheltered views of the neighborhood along with a place to pull up a chair and relax. (I've not stayed in the riverside rooms, but I'm sure they are at least as...

Had confirmed/guaranteed reservations (in writing) for TWIN bedded rooms. Reason; one room needs 2 beds (back injury), the other room needs 2 beds (teenage brother and sister sharing). Despite this, they tried to put us in doubles, and asked that we understand how full / busy they are..... Check-in took ages, with various levels of 'manager' being called to the...

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.
