Located near the historic center of the Bangkok this is one of my favourites. Great river view from you room (which is standard), a pool for relaxing and cooling off, clean and safe. Family friendly. Not the place to stay if you are out for business or shopping but certainly yes when you like this side of town and the... More

On the second stay we left for the train station and this can be reached by car within 15 minutes. The second we spent 2 nights and used both the Taxi boat starting form the... More

What we liked about the Hotel - The Friendly Staff - The Rooftop pool - Location just beside the river - Location just beside the boat pier What we didn't like - Air-conditioning wasn’t that impressive (either too cold or to hot) - Lack of quietness...you could hear every step on the hallway - You couldn’t close the bathroom door...

Beautiful place and very kind staff, absolutely loved the roof pool. Try the Singapore Sling at the bar, too! Next to the peer, speed boats are the fastest way to get to the temples and the Grand Palace. You can also simply walk and get to Ko San Road, full of nightlife.

The hotel was clean and the staff were very nice. The bag check was convenient on our check out day because we had a late flight. They allowed us use of the pool facility which enabled us to shower after a long day of walking around hot markets around Bangkok. We stayed at this hotel on our way in and... More

We stayed at Navalai for three nights including New Year's Eve. The location is ideal for exploring Khao San Road and the Grand Palace area for a few days. Clean, spacious room. The breakfast was outstanding, although the lunch and dinner menus were a bit pricey for the area. The rooftop pool was nice, but small. The staff was nice,... More

This hotel was perfect for us, the rooms are very nice and clean, they serve great breakfast on the riverside and have a rooftop with swimming pool. We just loved it! We had a warm welcome with refreshing towels and fruits in the room and the reception lady helped us a lot by finding some locations in Bangkok which we... More

We spent one night at Navalai when we arrived in Bangkok after a long flight from Europe. Staff was very welcoming and it's a very nice small hotel. Location is perfect at the river and a short walk from the palace, Khao San Road, ... Our room was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The swimming pool... More

The hotel is brilliantly situated, with everything in walking distance and a river taxi station next door. It had clean, nice rooms, and a rooftop bar and pool which offered really nice views of the river. The restaurant downstairs had brilliant food, and the breakfast was allright. Very helpful and friendly staff, who helped us arrange everything from airport pickup... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood 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.
