From the staff, scenery, tranquil quarter and fine dining, The Riva Surya, Bankok just caters to every need. The all over tgai massage helped to loosen up my city physique and the Hao San strip treated my culinary senses to lovely North Thailand cuisine. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Very surprised at the fantastic service because it was at such a reasonable price. We were greeted by enthusiastic and polite staff members who served us cold drinks while we waited to be checked-in. In less than 15 minutes we were already settled into our suite. The room was very spacious and clean with an amazing view of the river. Although the hotel was a little farther from central Bangkok, a taxi ride to downtown only cost 80-100 baht.

He staff treated us amazingly well from the moment we showed up. "jay" and Man and everyone else at the front desk were super helpful with everything we needed. The hotel is really nice too. Comfy beds. Nice pool. Good food. Really close to Khao San Road and other attentions. Water taxi stop literally in the back of the hotel which is who we used each day to get to the main sites (temples, Chinatown). Easy taxi or tuk tuk to pretty much anything else.

Beautiful luxury hotel by the river and affordable. Concierge was really helpful and the restaurant food was amazing. Didn't have time to swim in the pool or get a massage poolside but wish I did. Overall great hotel to stay at near the more touristy areas.

We were looking for something different for our weekend in Bangkok and were very happy to stay at Riva Surya. It is a small hotel with big rooms and staff who will go the extra mile to make your stay in Bangkok special. The hotel is located on the river and there is a public ferry stop on the doorstep. There are some great local (little) bars and restaurants across the road and the 2 hour happy hour at the hotel made a great start to Saturday night. Highly recommended.

Great location if you plan to visit the most popular attractions. Very elegant, super clean. Nice pool. Perhaps the best service I've ever experienced in a hotel, the stuff is unbelievable! Hotel restaurant Bubbles&rum inside and around the pool had much to offer us, enjoyed many many times. Very heavy and sometimes noisy river traffic but not disturbing inside due to effective sound proofing.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here start of June due to the previous reviews on here and it did not disappoint. The service was brilliant, the room was really nice (had the larger deluxe premier room) and both the food and drink were excellent. All round great hotel for staying in Bangkok. The express river boat stopped right outside the hotel and is great for getting about for only 14 THB and only about 400 THB for a public taxi from the airport. Definitely recommend this place.

This hotel was perfect for us. We are a group of 3 girls traveling who wanted to be in a great location but still have all the amenities of a nice hotel. It is an easy walk to Khao San but not close enough to be disturbed. Lots of cute restaurants and bars all around the hotel. Great river views. Nice breakfast and reasonably priced. I would definitely stay here again.

What a great hotel. We stayed 5 days in total (2 in May and 3 in June). I can't fault it. Had a river corner view room each time with views of the Chao Phraya River. Staff were excellent, food good. Nothing was any trouble. A short walk to Soi Rambuttri and Khao San Road. Ferry service less than a 5 minute walk. Will stay again when next in Bangkok.

We had a wonderful two nights at the Riva Surya. The staff were all incredibly helpful and welcoming. This trip is a fiftieth birthday trip, and the hotel staff greeted us with a delicious cake and candles, even though my birthday is not for a few weeks. They also upgraded our room to one with a terrace that overlooked the river and pool. The location, near Khao San Road but away from all of the chaos, is within walking distance of major attractions like the Royal Palace and What Pho. Returning ... Read more

Location great, right along the river. The hotel is quite comfortable with excellent amenities. The pool is a fantastic place to relax after a long, hot day. However, the staff is what sets this hotel apart. For a solo traveler in Bangkok for the first time, they made me feel like I had a friend in town. It was a nice respite from the relentless attack on your wallet by every store owner and taxi driver. Whatever I needed, they seemed to know what it was before I even asked. Maybe that's ...

I don't have much to add to all the other reviews except that it's probably the best refined yet casual place on this corner of Bangkok. Many times at nice hotels, the staff are rather stuffy (superficially polite) and think that they are superior to other Thai speakers. But here they are pleasantly helpful and kind. We booked on a third party site and received a better deal and they also added a cot for the kids. Location is walkable to all the tourist attractions and has lots of character. T... Read more

I went with 3 teens and we all loved the hotel. The staff is wonderfully helpful and accommodating, the AC and WiFi work well and allowed me to work seamlessly while there. The ferry stop, long tail boats and sois (pedestrian roads) near khao san rd make for great adventuring. The room is quiet and comfortable. The gym is air-conditioned (others aren't). The dinner is too expensive, though it's lovely to sit outside. Beware the pad thai in the resteraunt, my kids were not too happy with the gian... Read more

Hotel is great as all other reviews show. Great location and extremely friendly nice staff who will help you with anything. Only thing I was a little unhappy about was the taxi we arranged from the airport. It cost 1500baht (£30). Little bit much considering the amount you pay for rooms etc. Especially when you aren't 100% knowledgeable on Thai currency. I recently flew from Bangkok to chiang mai for less than that. Apart from that , great place

The hotel was reasonably nice-- Staff was friendly overall-- Right now construction/painting is going on which is a touch of an inconvenience. Inside our room on the 2nd day, we returned mid-day with the whole room smelling like cigarette smoke. I finally traced it to the bathroom access panel which opens up enabling me to see the light fixture of a room or location below me. I told the front desk who seemed rather skeptical. They offered to move us however our baby had just fallen asleep. T... Read more

Stayed for five nights on our honeymoon. Rooms, staff and service were all excellent. Staff went above and beyond to assist with anything we needed. Location made access to all tourist attractions very easy. Hired the hotel transportation for a day trip to Kanchanaburri (Elephants World), and the level of service could not be beat. They even gave you a slip of paper each time a taxi was taken to hand to drivers to inform them of your return address. Would definitely recommend.

This hotel is the perfect level of Luxury conveniently located next to the bustling backpacker centre of Khao San Road. As a young couple (formerly backpackers) that prefer a little luxury now we can afford it this was ideal. We had the independence and fun of local eateries on our doorstep but when desired could enjoy the aircon, pool and Spa of a lovely riverfront hotel. Brilliant!

Would recommend this hotel to other travellers to Bangkok. A great place for families with children. Located in old Bangkok on the river with great views. Food at restaurant was of high standard and a wonderful duo performing on the deck in the evening. Overall the most outstanding attribute was the staff. Always attentive and welcoming. Hotel immaculately clean.

This is a beautiful and immaculate place to stay if you want to experience Khoa San Road. It's located at the end of Rambutti Alley which is the coolest part of the Khoa San experience.

Only a short walk away from Khao San Road, Riva Surya is a beautiful boutique hotel. Riva Surya was one of the few hotels we stayed at in Thailand that gave us two room keys which allowed us to keep the A/C on in the room so when we came in from the sweltering heat, we didn't have to wait for the room to cool down. The lobby is beautiful - open and airy leading straight back to the pool overlooking the river. The hotel was incredibly clean and very well appointed. The staff was friendly, patie... Read more

Great hotel in a great location, close to the pier and with easy access to toe old Bangkok and restaurants. Pictures are not really representative of the hotel, which is by far better than what can be seen in Tripadvisor pictures and also on the hotel website ones. The pool is a great asset if you spend the whole day walking around Bangkok. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is good (but a little expensive compared to Thailand average).

Riva Surya was a really good hotel and with the pool and outdoor bar and restaurant it felt like a mini resort. The rooms were large and fairly comfortable.
