This is the place to stay if you would like to stay away from the city and get some peace in this old town of Bangkok. It is near Khao San, The Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun. So if you are intending to explore such places, Riva Surya is a good choice.

The lobby is an open concept, allowing the natural wind to cool the place.

+ Like

It’s a gem along Phra Arthit Road as Riva Surya is a hotel with international standards with a view which is magnificient.

– Dislike

No nearby BTS, which can be challenging when taxis do not want to bring you to the city via meter.

= Conclusion

There are many riverside hotels but this one located in the old city of Bangkok has it’s own charm. Not a very huge hotel but you get the same good service. Key attractions such as Grand Place and Wat Pho are also nearby.It’s extremely nearby to Khao San which  is indeed a good place to hang out and  chill. Otherwise,  chilling by the riverside over some drinks at Riva Surya is just as good with perhaps a little more peace.
