Nice and cosy place.”
We enjoy sitting at the balcony watching all types of ships go back and forth along the river. The location is great. We could walk to several attraction places. Nice decoration / clean / comfy bed, we really enjoy staying in this hotel.

Beyond expectations ”
This property is nicely appointed and in a great location. The staff were exceptional in every way and more than willing to go the extra mile. Unlike other places I have stayed in Bangkok and been incredibly “underwhelmed”, this place exceeded in every regard. Wat Arun is right across the river, a great rooftop resto affording you wonderful views of the bustling river (a little pricey but great food and view), amazing massage around the corner (associated with a college of massage a couple of doors down from the hotel - ask for Som!), a great little coffee shop at the corner, and not too far from some of the best vegetarian food in the world (Mango), a 2 minute walk to Wat Pho and the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand, as well as a 46m long reclining Buddha, and right around the corner from the palace! On my way to the airport I was already online booking my next stay here when I return in a few weeks!
Great Property / Great Location / Great View”
The Riva Arun is a gem in the old town of Bangkok. The views (from both the rooms and the restaurant/bar are second to none. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The rooms are beautifully appointed, and the restaurant serves great food. As a first-time traveler to Bangkok, we could not have been happier with our choice of the Riva Arun Bangkok!
Great Hotel & Location”
Will definitely return to this property! Very nice!!

Exceptional view!! ”
Love the Grand Deluxe River View on 3rd Floor, spacious with small balcony but overall extremely comfortable. The view truly is phenomenal with attractive tourists sites ie. Wat Pho and The Grand Palace within walking distance. Once there, make sure you visit this famous Vietnamese restaurant "Tonkin Annan" it's the best Vietnamese cuisine I've tasted here in Bangkok
very good service”
staffs are friendly and helpful. I'm really impressed with all the staffs. The room is very clean. The services are fantastic. Breakfast is very nice with a good view in the morning. I will definitely recommend this to friends and family :)
This was a very nice modern hotel, the beds are comfy, the location is good, there are plenty of tuk tuks near by to take you where ever you need. The staff was amazing!!! they are very accommodating and have awesome hospitality. We loved it here and I would definitely come back
The hotel employees were extremely helpful and friendly during my stay. The daily house keeping was not so clean and toiletries was not replenished. The view from the room was really nice but the room rate is considered high for a boutique hotel. Restaurant food was nice but price slightly on the high side.

Best regards, Rattana Kaewsaen Hotel Manager
Lovely staff, and the views from the breakfast terrace are spectacular (and a great breakfast menu too). Great for temple hopping, but far from BTS.
Dear Value Guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to share this lovely review with us! It is a real pleasure to know that you had an exceptional stay at Riva Arun Arun Bangkok and especially enjoyed our culinary delights. Please be informed that within early of 2019, The MRT (subway) is plan to operate therefore it will be very convenient for traveler who want to traveling into town (3 minutes walk from the hotel) whereas travelling by boat is still a charm of transferring in this old town area. We greatly appreciate your kind feedback and do hope to welcome you back again in the near future. Please do let us know if we can assist with any future arrangements. Best regards, Rattana Kaewsaen Hotel Manager
Nice place, great service”
Great place, love the location, friendly staffs, awesome view on the rooftop,the room is well designed. But the food and drink price is a little pricy which is understandable.
a boutique 4 star along the Bangkok river, close to WAT Arun, wat Pho and grand palace, 7/11 shop but very far from city central, just stay a night to exprience.
Great place for a romantic escape....
Stylish interior with view on the river”
Nice art-deco style interior. Nice riverview. Walking distance of Grand Palace and several piers. Gym and pool are located in a different property. So we haven’t used them. Not cheap, but I guess still fair.
Staycation hotel near Wat Pho”
We chose to stay at Riva Arun as we often visit another nearby hotel for dinner. This was a staycation so it was a short trip. The location is good for a short trip but with little room and not much in the way of facilities it would be better suited to a couple/single traveller than a family. We moved to the other property for our 2nd night the Riva Surya which was a better hotel for our needs. The location of Riva Arun is fantastic for Wat Pho, Wat Arun, and the less explored Wat Rakang and nearby market. Great areas to explore.
Great location, beautiful hotel, amazing staff! ”
Beautiful modern recently updated boutique hotel in the perfect location for site seeing- literally across the street from Wat Pho and grand palace. The view of Wat Arun across the river is gorgeous especially from the cozy rooftop bar. We found ourselves up there at least once daily to enjoy the food and some snacks or full meals - the food was amazing! The staff was very hospitable and helpful, more than willing to answer all of our questions and even going above and beyond in some cases to help us make local phone calls for reservations and inquiries. We had an amazing stay, thank you to all of the staff at Riva Arun!
Great view, nice rooms, decent staff”
I stayed here my first night in Bangkok. I thought I was getting a deluxe room, but I do not believe I did. It took weeks to get confirmation for a car scheduled, but they pulled through. The room was clean but it took them 10 minutes to prepare it, even though they knew I was arriving at midnight. The rooftop bar was closed at night but breakfast on top was good. It's centrally located to a lot of the wats too.
A great hotel with a perfekt location just next to Wat Pho, Grand Palace and the Flower Market. The restaurant on the top has a great view over the river and Wat Arun and it serves great flod both at breakfast and dinner. Nice rooms (had a De Luxe room with river view).
The staff was the most helpful. Well designed room, however the room is very small and could not fit 2 suitcases in the room ! The rooftop restaurant is phenomenal and has the most amazing view ! The location is great to walk to all the sites in the area Highly recommend this property
