I enjoyed my stay at the Praya Palazzo Boutique Hotel. It's a refurbished early 20th century mansion with 17 guest rooms sitting on the river. It's safe - accessible by private boat and the entry way is manned 24 hours per day. And it's comfortable. The hotel staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you... More

Located on the western bank of the Chao Praya, and accessible only by a private launch (Pier 13 Phra Athit Road), the Praya Palazzo is close to the city, but a long way from the cacophony and crowds than are a feature of Bangkok. The structure dates back to 1923 - an Antonio Palladio lifted out of Venice - the... More

I chose this hotel because I like to stay in bed n breakfast or heritage hotels. I like this hotel because it has some history and was owned by a previous king in Thailand but was commissioned to be built by an Italian architect. It was remodeled about a year or so ago and was in great shape. Beautiful property.... More

Bangkok is so hectic and full of life that a quiet but characterful riverside hotel is a real find. We loved this place, relaxing in its gardens between trips across the river to the old city. The access by shuttle boat is personalised and only takes a few minutes, and the staff were helpful and attentive. Although not many rooms... More

Yes. Bangkok might not be an easy City. Bangkok might seem to be busy, always and everywhere. After all, Bangkok is Bangkok! And of course, Bangkok has an enormous choice when it comes to “where to stay”. You can Lodge in one of the many International Branded Luxury properties, stay at some nice mid class Hotel or find even a... More

finding the hotel: access is only by shuttle boat from the jetty on other side of the river, we took a transfer which was totally unsatisfactory in as far as the driver was not in plain view, didn’t speak English and badly explained he would collect us at the front entrance. Fortunately we realise what we needed to do although... More

When planning our visit to Bangkok, we spent hours looking for deals at all of the 'usual' large, hotel chains in the city. We discovered the Praya Palazzo by accident through google, looked it up on TripAdvisor, and decided to book with them based on the outstanding reviews. We were not disappointed! The private airport transfer was smooth, the driver... More

Being ferried across the river at night in the hotel's boat was a magical way to start our visit. We did this several further times and were enchanted by the exotic nature of the experience. The building is beautiful, authentic, romantic and well situated to visit the city and its sites by riverboat. This is certainly a much more interesting... More

It's an oasis in noisy crowded Bangkok. It's sort of like a B&B--I would not want to be there when all the rooms are full. since I'm a light sleeper. For sure, you could hear way too much. We had a room on the second floor, and the property wasn't full when we were there, so our floors could really... More

Lovely staff, antique rooms, copper fittings in the washrooms.The private boat has an amazingly happy *snob value*! :) operates 24X7! The complementary room upgrade made it even more awesome! Praya Palazzo is 15 mins by boat from the grand palace, Wat Arun and most of the other attractions, Khao San is an easy walk from here!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Praya Palazzo is a stylish 17-room mansion with a rich historical background that offers a unique experience for the discerning travelers. Dating back to the ancient kingdom of Siam, the mansion is situated in the heart of Bangkok on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Ideal for travelers who want to relax while enjoying city life in the oldest part of Bangkok, Praya Palazzo is in walking distance to many historical sites and attractions such as The Grand Palace, The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn), Chinatown, The National Museum, and Kao San Road just to name a few. Praya Palazzo brings back the sense and lifestyle of the King Rama V period, conveying authentic Thai culture through vision, taste, scent, rhyme and touch. We are proud to offer you personalized service with style but not snobbism, casual atmosphere but not neglect, high standards but not stiffness, simplicity and authenticity. We look forward to sharing with you the passion and love that allowed this residence to stand still today. ... more   less
