Great hotel in a great location, close to the pier and with easy access to toe old Bangkok and restaurants. Pictures are not really representative of the hotel, which is by far better than what can be seen in Tripadvisor pictures and also on the hotel website ones. The pool is a great asset if you spend the whole day...

Cannot recommend this hotel more highly. Close to Khoa San Road. 5 min walk. Staff are just so competent and friendly. They cannot do enough for you. This has been my 9th trip to Bangkok and the Riva Surya has exceeded every other hotel by far.

The best thing about the hotel is that all the staff are friendly and helpful, true Thai hospitality if you ever found it. The hotel is small but luxurious with a lovely pool and the rooms are spacious, clean and modern. Would return in a heartbeat

We loved this small and charming hotel by the river. Lots of character and friendly staff. Location is great, on the river and five minuters away from the Kao Sarn area. Rooms are spacius with a big balcony with a comfortable sofa to chill in while watching river life. Pool area is small but nice. We'll defenitely come back.

Only a short walk away from Khao San Road, Riva Surya is a beautiful boutique hotel. Riva Surya was one of the few hotels we stayed at in Thailand that gave us two room keys which allowed us to keep the A/C on in the room so when we came in from the sweltering heat, we didn't have to wait...

A modern hotel right on the Chao Praya river, with nice views in several directions. It’s about 100 meters from the express-boat stop, and a short walk from Khaosan Road. Rooms are comfortable and well-equipped, and the WiFi works. There’s a fairly large pool on the ground floor, although it wasn’t easy to get the poolside staff to respond to...

This hotel is in a great location, next to the river and with gorgeous pool and bar. The hotel is really beautiful, staff is excellent. The gym is small but very new and clean, I even used it to workout and it was excellent. The breakfast is amazing, with lots of variety. Make sure to add it to the room...

The staff is very welcoming and went out of their way to help me during my stay. The location is close to public transportation. The room was comfortable and I loved the balcony facing the river. Drinking water is provided daily. Breakfast provided lots of choices for everyone - eastern and western foods available.

Lovely facility, brilliant location on the river. Staff incredible. Rooms spotless, large, great facilities and very comfortable. The first of a series of hotels as part of a tour of Thailand would find it hard to be beaten for a city hotel. Would definitely stay again.

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.
