We chose Riva Surya as its new and closes to Khaosan Road. We want to explore the area. The hotel has been refurbished and been open for 9 months. We were on 2nd Floor, it was a low season so wasn't crowded at all.
Room - We stayed in Premium Riva Room with Balcony & Breakfast. Bed & pillow were so comfortable and top quality. Balcony was good as we sat & watch the storm rolling in. Also quiet too i pay a bit more for this room as the Urban room faces the street were too noisy.
Breakfast - Really good coffee, very limited on choices. We stayed there for 4 nights and Breakfast menu was boring as it offered same food every day.
Pool - Pool n Bar Area is a bit crammed. Wouldn't want to be here in high season.
Bar - We had drinks there every night. Cocktail menu were quite creative. i wasn't too impressed when i asked for Pina Colada and it was serve in an old plastic Tumbler with no decorations. Cocktail meant to look impressive n creative?
Services - Excellent, all staff were very helpful n courteous.
Getting there - Since its new many Taxi Driver doesn't know it's there. Tell them to go to Thanon Phra Artid (Thanon means road) it's on riverside adjacent to Soi Chana Songkhram n 7-11. There is Bus stop right in front of the hotel.
Soi Chana Songkhram connects to Ram Buttri, you can find a lot of Restaurant n side street shops along the way. We ate at Pad Thai stall on the street n it was really good!
Overall this hotel is in the heart of BKK, closes to Khaosan Road, many of local shopping mall n market close by, distance away to MRT or BTS due to traffic jam. If u like Street food but like to stay at an upper class hotel then you should check out this Hotel.
