I haven't really heard of Riva Surya Hotel before so I didn't really know what to expect but when we got there, it was actually a really nice hotel. The interior of the hotel (lobby and the rooms) was really nice and it has very intricate details on the walls and ceilings. It's very different from the big chains of hotels in Bangkok that's why it stands out, in my opinion. The staff were really friendly and very helpful,the rooms are clean and nice and it has a very nice pool too. The food at their restaurant was fine and a little pricey, it's better to just eat out since you will get plenty of options outside the hotel. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the area behind the hotel (facing the river) was very filthy, there were dog and human feces everywhere on the path walk to go to the boat stations so I found that quite disgusting. You can visibly see the path walk from the hotel's poolside and from the restaurant too, it wouldn't hurt if the hotel management would assign someone to clean that area since their hotel guests use the boats frequently. The main road in front of the hotel has lots of restaurants, cafés and bars, also it is very near Khao San Road where it is nice to hang out at night to eat out, do a little bargain shopping or go for some drinks at the bars. By the way, this hotel is also located at the backpacker central or it used to be.
