Reviewed February 9, 2014

I have been meaning to write this review for a while, we stayed here in January '13 and had a great time. The hotel is really well situated in Bangkok close to Khao San Rd and surrounding area but not right on top of it so easy to get to places on foot.
The hotel was really nice and clean and the rooms lovely, was nice to get back to the hotel and have a little bit of luxury away from the busy streets outside. Cocktails by the roof top pool were really nice :) Service was good and reception staff very helpful. Good breakfast provided also.
Would definitely recommend this hotel as really good value for money, worth paying the bit extra for the river view also.

We liked the hotel. Staff was very friendly. Pool very relaxing after the long journey.
During our Thailand travel, we stayed here three times (after arrival, after first trip and before departure).
We got a room upgrade, when we asked for a double instead of a twin, no problem to store our luggage (for a small surcharge) and I even got some stuff back, which I forgot on the balcony.
It is conveniently located to restaurants in Banglampoo an Kao san road (if you like it, we didn't). only publictransport is the boeat in fron of the hotel, but honestly, a taxiride throgh the whole city costs about 100 baht.
Breakfast is ok, but it is nice to sit next to the river and enjoy it.

Navalai River Resort is clean, beautiful with excellent service. The breakfast included is very good and the setting is gorgeous as you get to sit out on the patio overlooking the river during meals.
The pool is on a rooftop terrace, which was lovely and provided seclusion for guests.
The room we stayed in was quiet and also had a bathtub which was a bonus for our daughter.
The hotel is right next door to a River Ferry pier, perfect for getting around! Also lots of good, inexpensive Thai restaurants in the area on Phra Athit road.

This hotel is right on the river and is very convenient for using the river taxi to get to all the tourist sites. It is a short walk to side streets with lots of restaurants and veessential.s. The room was comfortable but we did need service for the hot water which was great afterwards.
Warning the hotel is noisy at night. On the river side there is the whistle noise from the river taxi.on the street side there was a bar with live music every night Ear plugs were essential.
Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant was very good.

The Navalai River Resort is a very good hotel in the heart of the action on Phra Athit. It's just a brief walk to Khao San or Soi Rambuttri and the orange and blue flag river boats stop here. There's a lot of good places to eat and drink right on the road. The food is decent in the restaurants and they have a nice pool/bar on the rooftop. We enjoyed the room, it was very clean and well appointed. The only fault we found with this hotel was the extreme hardness of the bed (I like a firm mattress, my wife doesn't); it was kind of like sleeping on a hard floor.

Room Tip: The river view room had a nice balcony to sit on and watch the world float by. Make sure to take the...

This was our 4th stay at the Navalai over the past 8 yrs.
We loved it this time as much as before.
It is located right on the Chai Phraya river, just a few blocks from Khao San rd.
The rooftop pool is really nice and now offers poolside service of food and drinks.
The staff is very accommodating in the gentle and lovely thai manner, many have been there for years.
Rooms are really great - the street view rooms offer continual activity to see, the River view rooms offer a different and wonderful view of Bangkok.
We will look forward to our next stay at the Navalai,

This is a great hotel, the staff are incredible and the rooms are comfortable and clean. I had a room at the front of the hotel and it was a little noisy (what do you expect in a large city) but had no trouble sleeping. The restaurant was excellent for both breakfast and for lunch. The hotel is situated right next to a river taxi stop and so is very convenient for travelling around the city. You will quickly learn the meaning of the different colours of flags flown from the taxis as they relate to places they stop and how much they charge. There was some discussion as to whether being at the front of the back of the hotel is best for peace and quiet, for me the front is best as the water taxis run pretty early and late and the guys who direct the boats in to the dock use whistles to communicate. I would certainly recommend this hotel.
