The Navalia was recommended to me and didnt disappoint. If you want to explore the Ko San Road area you could not find a better situated hotel.
Backing onto the Chaopraya River the hotel has its own Ferry boat dock. Top tip pay on the boat and not before as its about 20 baht each.
From here you can get to most places. Head down to central pier and get a tuk tuk to the Lebua Tower Sky Bar as appeared in The Hangover 2.
The rooms are nice,well appointed and clean. I think the ones at the rear would be better as they afford a view of the river. The front ones are ok are not noisy as well insulated.
The roof top pool are is very nice.
If you arrive before your room is ready I would avoid breakfasting at the hotel. At 250 baht each it's very expensive although nice. There are cheaper places across the road.
Ko San is just across the road where you can mingle with the backpackers and the scene before wondering back to the loveliness of the Navalai. No point roughing it in a hostel unless your a backpacker.
To sum up. A nice well situated hotel which I didn't think was unreasonably priced.
