“Friendly service, good location, clean & well furbished rooms”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

Even though this hotel is locked between a busy road and an equally busy ferry stop, we enjoyed this place because of it's good connections to Bangkok's tourist attractions, comfortable and clean rooms, and for that relaxing afternoon jump into the pool on the roof. This and the very friendly service staff would encourage us to stay here again!
The hotel's lovely situated riverside - restaurant is quite OK but a bit expensive. You'll find many places in walking distance where you can enjoy good Thai and Chinese food.

Room Tip: Try to get a room close to the river (Serene corner rooms) or one of the fewer riverside rooms, whic...

Just spent 2 nights at Navalai. Yes, we arrived just in time for a soaking. Songkran was in full swing! Was hesitant because our room faced the street on 5th floor. My 2 boys and I (15 & 10) armed ourselves with water guns, made the most of Songkran spending the two evenings out and about getting wet and came back to our very clean, air conditioned, comfy rooms to bath and dry off. The room was great, we actually slept really well. I would suggest choose a room on the riverside if available (Lots of night club noise on our side). We weren't bothered though. We enjoyed the party! Restaurant and buffet breakfast were fab! Navalai is well located.

Room Tip: Choose a riverside room. Quieter

Discovered Navalai last September.... last minute on Trip Advisor (of course!)... had a lovely stay then and on a recent visit to Bangkok decided to give it another go ... oh how glad we are that we did! The rooms are basic, but very, very comfortable (loving those firm beds) but the highlight, without a doubt is the restaurant that sits right on the river. The Ferry stops here (No. 13).. literally on the doorstop..step off the ferry, into the restaurant for an ice cold beer. The quality of the food that is served in this restaurant is superb. They have a hugh menu (this usually makes me cringe!) however we dined here (6 people) on several ocassions, and without exception, were delighted with the quality of the food.. great service ... and Oh so cheap!! Will be back soon!

So we chose the Navalai due to it's location and good trip advisor reviews. Overall, It turned out to be a good choice. There were a couple of negatives which prevented me giving a 5 rating; the room was extremely cramped with the extra single bed, making it a bit of a pain for a family, and the main double bed mattress was extremely hard, very uncomfortable. Apart from that, It was a good experience. The location on the river and also being so close to the shops, bars, restaurants in khaosan road was a huge plus for us. The rooftop pool & bar was a godsend after a hot day touring around Bangkok. The breakfast was also very good. The room (306) was pretty quiet and the aircon worked very well. A metered taxi to the airport worked out at about 300 Bhat including tolls, so that seemed pretty reasonable.

This is by no means a bad hotel however you do run the risk of getting a bad room. I want everyone to be aware that the hotel is situated near to night clubs and live music bars playing LOUD music till 2am most nights. The rooms on one side of the building face out onto the street and the music comes through. If you have just landed after a 12 hour flight and want a good night sleep this may not be the hotel for you.
However I have to say that when we asked to move to the other side of the hotel we had a completely different experience. The noise was still there but much quieter and easy to sleep.
If you manage to get a good room you will find this hotel to be excellent. It is in a fantastic location, near to the grand palace, Wat Pho and the Chao Phraya river. There is a river boat stop next to the hotel for trips down the river. The rooftop swimming pool is great and the view over the river is stunning. The hotel itself is fine. Well maintained, clean and tidy. The restaurant is in a good location, right next to the river, however there is better food at a cheaper price available in the restaurants nearby.
When you arrive at the hotel please ask for a room away from the street on the right hand side of the building when you face the reception desk. On the same side of the building as the fishpond.
If you are the sort of person who will be out till 2am anyway then you will have no problem with this hotel, unfortunately I am not which is why I really want to love this hotel.............but can't.
