We recently stayed at the Riva Surya Hotel in Bangkok and would just like to say what a brilliant hotel this is! We had spent two weeks on holiday in the south of Thailand in Krabbe and at short notice decided we would like to have our last night in Bangkok before flying home to the UK. The hotel is in an excellent location being right by the river . For someone with only a short time (ie 48 hours) in the city it is close to all the major tourist attractions and you can get an all day ticket from which will allow you to stop off at the sites up and down the river.. The staff were courteous , friendly and more than helpful in every way. We were allowed to use the facilities long after midday on our check out day which made all the difference. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the river . The hotel is stylish and very comfortable. Will hope to revisit.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and paid extra for a room with a balcony over the river which we were so pleased we had. The higher up you go the better the views!

This is now my 4th stay @ Riva Surya and each time it's like experiencing it for the first time..

As soon as you walk through the main gate you can leave the chaotic Bangkok behind and find an oasis of peace and tranquility

Location is great for the grand palace, Kho San road (a few minutes walk away) and river transport into downtown Bangkok.

On this trip there was no need to venture far from the front door to experience the Thai hospitality and experiences you only come to expect each time.

Staff are friendly, helpful and very accommodating to any request.

Can't wait to come back and experience this property again and again

The Riva Surya is located on walking distance of the Royal Palace and the Wat Po. In the streets around the hotel are many bars, restaurants, shops, etc. Location: perfect! The rooms are very nice and clean, with good airconditioning and with the best beds I ever had in a hotel. Good food, a very nice swimmingpool with a nice view on the Chao Praya River and a very friendly, helpfull and capable staff. Hotel and service: perfect!

This hotel is beautiful. It was the first stop on our honeymoon and we loved it. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It's close and easy to get to all the sites via tuk tuk or river taxi but make sure you spend some time by the pool.
Would not hesitate to return to this hotel on our next visit to bangkok :)

We stayed for about a week with our 2 year old son. Everyone was very sweet with him which really made the difference. We had to take him to the hospital during our stay and everyone was very conscientious of that and helped us out every way they could.

The food was very good as well as the pool. I would highly recommend this hotel. In fact, our parents are going to stay here in a few weeks due to our stay.

Thank you to everyone at Riva Surya.
