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

This was our 3rd time to Bangkok and booked this hotel as somewhere to relax after cambodia, before the long journey home. Couldn't have been more please! Location was just what we needed, room had a balcony with a view of the river which was perfect for relaxing and watching the world go by (even at 5am). Easy taxi ride... More

Stayed here for 4 nights early July ands was very impressed. Had a river view room with balcony which was great for having a few drinks while watching the sun set over the river. The air-con was excellent (it was extremely humid outside). Room was clean and comfortable. The roof top pool and bar were an amazing way to relax... More

We have stayed at the Navalai previously and decided on a last minute booking to stay here again. We were warmly welcomed and the receptionist recognised us a from our previous stay. The rooms are clean and well looked after. It was very hot and the Air Con worked well. We love the location of this hotel, a short walk... More
