Arrived early morning after a 16hr flight in total from the uk! We jumped a taxi from the airport which cost 350 baht, about £7!! Taxi was flagged down by hotel porter who literally stopped traffic for us.. It was 9.00am we entered the lobby to be given cold drinks from the porter who struggled with both our bag backs... More

The food is also good in the restaurant but overpriced for thailand. The rooms were top class..very clean. We had a balcony and even a bath which from staying in many... More

Very clean and well appointed hotel, overlooking the river and close to night markets with good selection of restaurants. Wonderful rooftop pool area. Staff very helpful and excellent breakfast. We only stayed one night before flying out to Europe and wished we had stayed a few nights. Well worth returning to for an extended stay.

Firstly, let's settle some of the carping in the low rated reviews. Noise ! This si Bangkok, people! It does have street noise, and on the river view side of the hotel there is the diesel engine ferries at the landing stage. It's all a matter of perspectives... aren't some reviewers just too precious ? We had a river view... More

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
