    Nice room interior. Small pool. Good location for tourist spots. Polite staff.”

    - Easy access to Bangkok tourist spots, i.e., Khao Sarn Rd., Grand Palace, many temples, and piers. - If you don’t get the room with breakfast, it’s fine. Just walk to Banglamphu. There’s morning market that you can enjoy Thai breakfast. - Limited parking space tho.

    A really nice hotel at the riverbank. Rooms were good and spacious and the view was amazing. The service was in top, very polite and professional. Especially a big thanks to Na and Nee who did a great job; always helpful and smiling. They are a reason why I'll return for a new stay. But actually all the staff was professional and polite and helpful.

    Wonderful friendly comfortable hotel with a great location ”

    We stayed here twice in February and both times were met with courteous, very helpful staff. The bed was large and comfortable. We stayed in an urban room (budget restraints!) but would have loved to have stayed in a river view room. The hotel design is imaginative unlike many of the dreary more expensive places out there and the location is wonderful. The staff called us taxis and tuks tuks - agreeing a good price for us before we got in so there would be no awkwardness. Bangkok is a fab city and Hotel Riva Surya adds to its charm.

    Loved, loved, loved it!”

    River Surya is a slice of heaven right in the middle of Bangkok. We had Room 514 which is on the river side (important as it is quieter), on a corner, and has a stunning view of the river and Rama VIII bridge. The staff is wonderfully accommodating, and our meals were delightful. Although we did not indulge, the pool looks lovely and others clearly enjoyed it. You do need to take into account that you are a ways from the business district, but it is worth the extra time it takes to get to meetings. And the neighborhood is a fun one to explore!

We did not try the breakfast. The hotel is great for couples, groups or families. Try out Peeps across the street for some amazing food!

    Location, pool, balcony

    Our stay was wonderful. The hotel is right on the river so even though the madness of Khao San is not far away, the hotel is very peaceful. We didn't eat there, but we relaxed in and around the pool. The hotel has great character in its furnishings and stylings - like a boutique place. The large balconies overlooking the river with a couch were great. Would come back in a flash.

    Excellent boutique hotel ”

    staff and service, riverfront location, location in bangkok

    An excellent boutique hotel, not too big with very attentive staff. The swimming pool, lounge and deck right on the Chao Phraya River are excellent. Also, we could make the short walk to the Grand Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha and Sanaam Luang. Lots of food options close by It's a true gem. A few things, though, to be mindful of. They are undergoing a renovation right now which should be finished soon so there's some noise during the day if you want to relax next to the pool. The rooms are very clean but somehow the floor is not so. I like to go barefoot in the hotel room and was surprised that that my feet were black after walking around. If you get a room on the street side, it may be really loud at night due to the bars. The riverside rooms however are perfect with only some noise from the boat traffic early in the morning. Overall, I highly recommend it and would stay again.

    Surrounding, Hotel Decoration, Hotel Staffs

    Heard about Riva Surya things for a while and had no time to even visit for a dinner. Eventually, my girlfriend birthday brought us to book a Riva Room for a night to celebrate. The hotel is amazingly decorated. The location is by the river where you can see the bridge on the both sides of the hotel. One thing I love the most about this hotel is it makes you feel like you are not in Bangkok, their food, surrounding and quality service make you feel like you are in Hua-Hin or Krabi. That is what you are unable to feel when staying at other hotels in Bangkok. Every details got a bit of this and that and it looked perfect.

    Location, Staff, Surroundings

    When searching for a hotel in the area I was looking for a hotel within walking distance to the Grand Palace and that was not a typical "backpacker" hotel but something affordable but nice, Riva Surya met my requirements and then some. The location is almost right in between Khao San road and the Grand Palace with the walk to each site about the same length. The pool area is located with a view of the river and has plenty of room to sit around the pool and enjoy a drink from the bar. Room was simple clean and comfortable. Every single one of the staff that I had any interaction with met me with a smile and a polite greeting and were always willing to help.

    Very plesant stay. Extremely attentive and polite staff. Small and cosy hotel. Very comfortable rooms, in particular the bed. Khao San road is à 5 minute walk away. Is à bit out of the way though. Taxi to downtown takes à minimum of 30 minutes though cost is relatively inexpensive (80 bhat). This was our first time in Bangkok and not that we didńt like the hotel, but the next time we will choose a hotel more in the centre of town .
