Riverside hotel with artistically decorated rooms
The Navalai River Resort is a competently managed hotel with nice rooms and a fantastic riverside location. We are not saying this is the greatest hotel in Bangkok, but we think it is probably the most comfortable riverside hotel for under 100 USD a night. The hotel has a number of river view rooms and if you can book these then you are on to a winner. If you aren't lucky enough to get a river view room then you can enjoy the river view from the pool, the restaurant and the bar.
We like the river, and we like having breakfast looking at the river. This is a good way to start the day. The facilities, pool, restaurant, spa, and bar, are OK but it is the riverside location that is the reason for booking at the Navalai River Resort. Located on the Phra Athtit Road you are near Khao San and a whole load of bars, restaurants and tourist attractions. To get to the Grand Palace, or Chinatown or connect to the Skytrain you can hop on a river boat. The hotel is located right next door to a pier for the commuter boat which costs around half a dollar for a journey of any length.
A fair amount of effort has been put into the rooms which are artistically decorated. We have categorised this hotel as themed for this reason. There are four different themes: Artistic, Thai Lifestyle, Colonial and Rattanakosin. We think this has been well done and is a big improvement on identikit designed hotel rooms. The rooms are categorised by view and by size. There are two city view rooms: Serene Corner Room (30sqm) and Scenic City Room (34.7sqm). There are also two river view rooms: River Breeze Room (38.5sqm) and River Serenade Room (45.5sqm). We don't think much of the city view, although the rooms themselves are good. This is one hotel that could have been designed better to ensure that all rooms have a river view.
