Found Riva Surya Hotel on TripAdviser. Easy to book a room for a single traveller. Taxi from the airport cost around 300baht including tolls. Some confusion between "Riva" and "River" hotels on same street.
Staff warm and friendly. Could not do enough to help. Hotel well appointed and in good condition. Bonus is the Riverside view. Local area is lively but hotel peaceful. Room was spacious, clean and well equipped.
Breakfast was not included but available at reasonable cost. Good selection of food.
Location great for backpacker area and the River Taxis. Little further from the modern city centre.
Check out was smooth and efficient. Staff provided guidance on taxis and timings for return to the airport.
Overall, very enjoyable holiday!
