Location was great but there were street sounds

It was fine for the two nights we had to explore the cultural highlights of the city. The temples are all near and Khaosan Road provided an interesting glimpse of street life (albeit touristy with a young vibe). The Airconditioning at this hotel takes some time to get started so feels like its not working but after about 45 minutes it started to kick in and work fine.

My favorite Bangkok hotel

Nice room design/well thought out; convenience of location/near river and city; good buffet breakfast & restaurant
9.7
The Navalai has become my go-to place in Bangkok when I come here to use the National Archives, which are located up Samsen Road. What I like best is the familiarity of the rooms: the design and quality of the furnishings is right up there with a good western hotel, but with a distinctively Thai flair. I love Phra Arthit Road's small cafes and old Thai mansions (several princes had houses along this road), and at nighttime it's quite the hotspot for local (Thai) hipsters to come and hang out. If you're not into that, the Navalai is nice and quiet -- at least, the "serene corner" and "river view" rooms are. :-) The restaurant downstairs has a lovely river view, and the breakfast buffet has really nice variety on offer. Typically the spread includes ham & bacon, scrambled eggs, various breads for toast, croissant and baguette, cold cereals, fresh fruit, and yogurt (not to mention an Asian breakfast option as well). Though there is tea and juice on offer, their fresh coffee can't be beat. When you are too tired from sightseeing to leave your room, you can room service, although it's a little pricey. (For cheaper drinks and snacks, try the 7-Eleven downstairs, or any one of the vendors down the street.) In addition to the 7-Eleven, there's an ATM in the front of the building, and a money-changing booth just up the street. Lots of buses and taxis coming along this street at all hours. Oh, and don't forget the riverside park next to the Old Fort at the end of the street. It's easy to get around town from here, too -- whether by river boat (15 baht will get you all the way to the Saphan Thaksin bridge SkyTrain station) or a taxi (about 60 baht to Siam Square, where you can also pick up the SkyTrain). The Grand Palace, National Museum and Thammasat University are very close by as well. Enjoy!

Perfect for tourist!

Kaosan access, boat stop, river view
8.7
If you want to enjoy Kaosan until late night but don't want to stay in guest house, please stay in this hotel. This is perfectly located for tourist, it's right in front of the boat stop to the palace where you must see in BKK.

Just stayed the one night catching up with friends. The pool area is on the roof top which gives a good view over the city. Poolside bar for snacks and refreshments and a happy hour every night.

Well positioned hotel on the river

Easy access to river boats, easy walking distance to Shopping, dining and entertaining

I enjoyed my stay at the Navalay resort. Booked a serene corner room, room 408 which was quiet and had partial river views. Noticed that rooms with uneven numbers (with balcony on other side of the building) had a lot more light coming in and seem to be quiet as well. Only if you want to sit on a balcony listening to and smelling the traffic as well as the noise at night from the little bars on the Main Street should you book the Main Street facing rooms. Not my cup of tea. Breakfast good although I would like yo see more variety I.e. more Asian dishes. The hotel is advertised as **** but I think that's a bit high considering the condition of the bathroom, which really needed some upkeep. The roof top pool was great with plenty of Sunbeds. Good views from there. Being next to pier for river boat transport big plus. I would stay at Navalai Again but only for the discounted price as there's plenty of **** hotels priced in same or even less range reflecting **** as good or better.
