Booked a last minute break in the Navalai, to meet up with friends of ours. Hotel went out of the way to get us a room on the 5th floor, just nearby our friends, which was unexpected. The Hotel itself is in an excellent location, right on the riverfront, but just goes across the road at the back of it... More

Navalai River resort is a gem in the old city, stuatied on the Chao Praya river. Enjoying your breakfast on the terrace located on the riverside. Swimmingpool on the rooftop offers a great view on the Rama IIIX bridge. Rooms are very clean and cosy. Internet was also available. Pier 13 is just in front of the terrace. The boats... More

Great spot to stay in Bangkok, right on the river at #13 ferry stop, which gives you access to many spots along the river including the Grand Palace. Close to Khao San district for shopping, bars, restaurants (try Magic Thai Food - great food, cheap prices). Loved our room on the river side where we could watch the river traffic.... More

Check in was very smooth and the staff were very friendly. I saw some reviews stating the rooms were noisy but this would be the rooms at the front. We had a side room on the 5th floor which was very quiet. Room was very clean and roomy. TV had 5 or 6 international cable channels, tea and coffee, safe... More

Navalai River Resort was hands down the best choice we could have made! We had a lot of different side trips planned and had made arrangements to always come back to this hotel. They stored our extra luggage for us (for a very small fee) so that we didn't have to take 2 weeks worth of clothing on a 2... More

We spent three nights in this hotel...it can be noisy with a nightclub across a busy street on one side and river express boats docking on the other side. But the location for us (we like to walk) couldn't have been better. Our room was clean and the service was good. There is a nice breakfast buffet but they are... More

Stayed here in mid July 2014 with my wife and 3 year old daughter. The short version - a hotel that could be great, but has a major noise problem you'll want to avoid (we suffered, hence my 2 star rating; I'm not going to pretend it doesn't exist). Ignoring that, it's a 3 star quality hotel that works hard... More

I have stayed here twice now the latest being for two nights the end of May. It's in a good position for sight seeing as the taxi boats stop right outside it and are very cheap .its a 5 minute walk to kho San road and all that has to offer. The staff are welcoming on arrival. I stayed in... More

Stayed here again this year for 2 nights prior to flying home. Again all was great. The situation is its strong point. A short walk gets you to The Grand Palace ( don't forget the long trousers,although if you do you can hire them there for free if that makes sense. Or vendors sell them outside) Again a short walk...

Unfortunately I had only one night at Navalai River Resort (up at 3am for early flight!) but I wish I could have enjoyed another night before flying home. Considering i had been traveling Thailand for 3 weeks on a backpacker budget, Navalai River Resort was a welcome retreat, especially in 37degree Bangkok heat. I had a gorgeous room on the... More
