We have stayed at Navalai three or four times over the past 8 years and it has been consistently good. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the restaurant offers good food at slightly elevated prices, and the staff are helpful and friendly. It is not cheap but neither is it exorbitant. Try Agoda or other hotel booking sites for... More

What a friendly place!. We came in on an early flight and they let us in the room at 8 in the morning. The roof pool is great with beautiful views of the river. Breakfast is fine, with outside and indoor seating and a lot of fresh fruit and both bread an pastries and eggs as well as Thai options.... More

This is a fantastic boutique style hotel set in a great location on the banks of the Chao Praya river. Excellent breakfast which could be taken on an outside deck overlooking the river. The hotel was situated right next to pier thirteen so you could just hop on a taxi boat for 15 baht to explore the sights of Bangkok.... More

The hotel is tidy at the edge of the river, the street at front is slightly busy, if you are a silence loving person you may find the atmosphere slightly noisy if you have a room facing the street, but if you love party and music you will find the place lively. The rooms are medium sized, small bathroom (we... More

For the last 14 years we have lived in Songkhla, Thailand. From time to time we have guests come to Thailand and we strongly believe that first time visitors should stay along the Chao Phraya River if at all possible. In June our family came from the States and we selected the Navalai River Resort for our four days in... More

We have visited this hotel June this year and we stayed here for 3 nights. We are a family on three (2 adults and 1 child of 4). We booked a standard room with an extra bed. The room is just big enough to place an extra bed. We had some difficulty to get onto the balcony. This was no... More

I stayed here upon landing in Bangkok on my two previous trips in 2013 and the fall of 2014. Great Hotel right near Koh San Road and right on the river at Pier 13. If you're past staying in gross hostels and want relief from the daytime heat, stay hear and you'll have a rooftop pool to enjoy. The rooms... More

I am just too old for the chaos of Ko san road, but find the 'international' hotels of Sukhamvit to be too bland for my taste. Navalai is in a fantastic location within minutes walk of the plethora of bars and restaurants that this area offers. You have a River boat stop at the back of the restaurant which offers... More
