Nicely situated on the river, within walking distance of the Royal Palace . Nice terrace on the river. Close to many restaurants and bars in a lively neighbourhood. The clearingbank service of the rooms should do a better job.

Stayed two nights in August in this hotel near Khaosan Road. Considering some glaring reviews, we were a bit disappointed. It's certainly interesting to watch the bustling traffic on Chao Praya river from the hotel's balcony, but this means that you will also experience the diesel fumes and noises of the express boats that stop right below the hotel every...

Helpfull staff accomodated all our requests, areanged for weekend tours, etc. There is a pier in front of the hotel, so any day one could hop in one of many boats going around. Nice terrace at the river... More

Navalai has a good location on the river a short distance from main routes in and out of Bangkok for any activities booked. Room was spacious and bed comfortable, bathroom facilities were great as was the rest of the room. Cable TV was a bit disappointing with only 4 Thai/Asian channels to choose from, not one European one to show.... More

Our second stay in two years and mainly for the great location, right on Pier 13. The hotel maintenance has run down a bit, but the comfort is still ok. The staff is alright as well, apart from the pool bar, they are just a bunch of kids playing or checking their phones All the time instead of taking care... More

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
