Reviewed October 19, 2012

The staff where great the room was always a good place to come back too always well cleaned and frequently neatend up whilst we where out and about the breakfast, pool, decor was all amazing and the king bed was the most comfortable I've slept in at any hotel this should be a 5 star hotel and for the location and price it's perfect a brand new hotel amongst old ones certainly the best place to head back to so we could relax from the busy streets I'll be coming back riva surya see you soon.

I can't comment on the hotel itself. I was planning on staying here, but despite a "Contact Us" section on their website and an automatically generated email saying they would get back to me within 24 hours, I never received a response to my question about their transportation offerings (over the course of several days). If service is that bad in responding to a simple question, I'd be alarmed to try staying at the hotel.

We had a room upgrade and spent 3 days in a beautiful room with river frontage.All the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming.The decor is very special and the place is spotless.
We had dinner in the restaurant and the staff were very accomodating changing one of the dishes to suit our request.
Definitely recommend this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: We had a corner room at the back.On a Saturday night there are many cafe/nightclubs playing very lou...

The friendly welcome by General Manager Mr Tim Vongswang and his lovely Front Office Manager Rattana Kaewsaen, the spacious and beautifully decorated Deluxe Riva Room with views of the Chao Phraya River, the absolute clean and hygienic condition of all facilities and the stunningly manicured surroundings have been a pleasant surprise.
Well-meaning efforts by the very attentive staff are outstanding.
I particularly enjoyed the times at the plentiful and delicious breakfast which provided a very peaceful and easy-going start to my planned activities for the day.
Office Manager Rattana Kaewsaen and Front Counter Staff passionately offered their assistance to arrange transport and/or give advice with reliable local knowledge.
Overall, this exciting Boutique Hotel along the Chao Phraya River in the heart of Bangkok was an extremely pleasant experience and represents absolute value for money.
I thoroughly enjoyed such distinctive hospitality.

We were guests at the hotel for 3 nights.
The hotel is situated in an excellent location, on the banks of the river , close to Khao San Rd. and close to many tourist attractions and restaurants.
The room itself was lovely and decorated to perfection.
We loved the great view to the river from our room.
Also the cleanliness and upkeep of the room were very impressive.
We received the highest level of service from the entire staff of the hotel.
We can especially commend the front office team due to the personal and amicable relations with us, their willingness to help and their knowledge and experience of all things that are important to tourists.
We must say that we received full value for our money spent
We will be happy to return to this hotel in our next visit to Thailand

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was lovely. It is a very new hotel and has been done to a very high standard. Our room was beautiful and very spacious with a lovely balcony that has fantastic views of the river. The staff were very attentive and looked after us very well. There was a small problem with the power in our room and they sorted it straight away and even gave us cookies and letter as an apology! very reasonable for standard of accommodation and great location for khao San road. didn't use pool but it looked gorgeous. River taxi outside hotel was a great way to get round. Would definitely return,

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking river with a balcony
