Every person on staff was very helpful at the Riva Surya for my first stay in Bangkok. Although I cannot remember everyone's name... (Boopsy, Patti, Tai, Wit and Ong) I was always greeted with smiles and a "Sawatdee Ka/Krab" - I loved it there! It began with a phone call from the U.S. when I asked if they could provide transportation services for my stay and Mr. Wit was very helpful and helped me to be at ease before departing from WA. Mr. Ong, my "driver", was the best! He made sure I was where I needed to be-on time, everytime- lol because I used there "limo" service for long distances. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better for me and my husband because we could walk to sights and also hop the water taxi to The Grand Palace, Wat Arun, and Wang Lang Market. It is located close to Khao San Road also. The restaurant in the hotel made great Thai food, the Som Tam Salad I ordered was very spicey but very good and the Satay, Thai Chicken, Sticky Rice, beer and wines were very good also. One evening the restaurant made a Thai soup for me after the restaurant was closed. Very nice of them considering it was after hours. Our view of the Chaopraya River was amazing and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've been in for a hotel stay. I had such a memorable time for my fist visit to Bangkok, I absolutely fell in love with this place. I will definitely stay there again.
