                excellent rooms, staff were great, balcony overlooking the river, nice pool.

                the food is expensive yet very average.

                this hotel is well located close to all you want in Bangkok, the ferry is at the door for all the temples, a very comfortable pleasant hotel, we were on a cruise ship so could only stay one day, we will return for a week

              • Couple
                9.6

                Great staff, huge comfortable mattress, large room, wonderful breakfast buffet

                Lots of noise from the outside, which lasts until quite late in the night (you can still hear the surrounding clubs, traffic and crowds until 12 and 1am).

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Everything, the staff were so pleasant on arrival and for the duration of our stay. It was pure luxury, the beds were amazing-it was like sleeping on clouds. It's like a paradise haven in the middle of a very busy Bangkok street. The staff went out of their way to help us at all times, especially Wit and Aica.

              • Older travelers

                The location close the the river and Khao San Road. The balcony rooms are nice.

                The reason for booking this hotel was the offer of balcony rooms to the river site. However, when we came the booked room was not available for one (of three) nights and we got a small room without balcony. The staff told us we have to pay the full charge for the balcony room for all three nights as they cannot change it when we have booked with Booked.net (!!). Quite strange, as it is the issue of the hotel if they cannot offer the booked room. After some discussions we got a meal and 2 drinks free as compensation. The breakfast was really a joke: fruits, bread, cake, cornflakes, one sort of juice, tea/coffee. No egg, no ham, no cheese. I had even in 2-star-hotels much better breakfast ! Besides the head-waitress the staff of the restaurant was very un-interested in the guests, never came round to the pool to ask for orders. The music played very load until late night, it was not possible to sleep before mid-night. Besides the quality of the balcony rooms, I would consider this hotel a 2-3 star hotel. The price is far to high for what they provide. I have made up to 30 hotel assessments here, and all were - more or less - positive. But I would not recomment this hotel.

                Everything was great. The room with the view over the river. Wonderful bed and generally the interior decoration. Close to pier from which easily we could visit the City. Close to Khaolan and other turist places. Very nice and helpful staff. Really the hotel is a great place to stay.

              • Couple
                7.8

                The staff was vefry friendli and helfpful. Good electronic equipment (WiFi, Mac PCs at the lobby)

                The rooms were quite clairaudient. Music from the bar downstairs is anoying when you have a room with river view. The quality of the breakfast was disappointing (fruits were not very fresh, no big choice).

              • Couple
                7.4

                Beautiful room with the river view, comfortable bed, close to colourful backpakers' streets and locations.

                During lunch at the swimming pool there is a lunch buffet that anyone can enter from the street. They check at the entrance to the swimming pool area if you paid for lunch or not. The result: residents leave to their rooms, as they don't feel comfortable being objects of surveillance; potential lunch-clients do not feel comfortable to eat next to people having sunbath or swimming so they do not enter. Nobody is really happy... Breakfast is a perfect place for practising your patience. The staff doesn't speak good English, so the do not understand what you order and bring you something else or don't bring it at all. BTW you need to know that breakfast is a la carte, so if you see empty tables with just two pieces of toast bread, no dishes and some musli with no milk or yoghurt ask for the menu, you can still have something :-) that will just take some time for them to prepare.

                - Everyone of the staff were always very pleasant, professional, happy to see you and assist in any way possible. Very quick to respond to queries. They really were the icing on the cake. - The location was great. Loved the boat launch right at the hotel. Helped greatly with my ease of quickly adapting to their transit system; easywalking distance to various temples and to Khaosan Rd. and yet far enough away from the action that it was not an issue; being on the river was peaceful and interesting to watch. - Beautiful oasis in a concrete, neon and traffic-bound jungle. The looks and amenities of the hotel and my room gave me great comfort (after trekking and backpacking for over a month, I felt like home). The beds and pillows were amazingly comfortable (the most comfortable ever). - I would definitely stay there again and recommend this wonderful hotel to friends and family.

                - I was disappointed they were not aware of my on-line reservation. When I arrived I was tired and my i-pad had been deleting emails including the on-line reservation confirmation. I had written down all the information *(just in case) and yet they still could not find my reservation with that information. It took closed to an hour for things to finally get settled. They did their best during this time, but it was frustrating for me.

                Large well decorated room and bathroom with river view. Situated close to a river bus stop Staff went out of their way to be helpful

                As a luxury bijoux hotel they need to develop a good in house dinning experience. They should think about how clients might access the upstairs bar area when it is raining. Perhaps they might cover the stairwell.

                This is a brand new hotel which has been designed in a modern, yet very tasteful way. The staff were very attentive and on some occasions went out of their way to help us. The facilities were great, breakfast was delicious and the rooms comfortable. Small touches like free water everyday and an ipod docking station were appreciated. The location is perfect. On the river for a lovely view at breakfast and also right at one of the river boat stations - very handy for a less traffic filled way to travel across Bangkok. The hotel is close enough to the Khao San Road and it's neighbouring streets that there's plenty of nearby nightlife and backpacker related facilities but far enough that it's in a quieter location and with a handful of bars and restaurants that young Thai's frequent. Near to the Grand Palace and temples and walking distance to the National Museum.

                In any other cosmopolitan city the price tag of Riva Surya would have been just right, but Bangkok is a place with reams of very cheap accommodation so given the location of the hotel, it felt a little bit expensive. However the hotel is of a high standard so you could argue the price is justifiable.

                The hotel is new and very well located, with a nice sleek design. . My room had a beautiful view to the river and it is near Kao Sang where there are many coffees, street shops and restaurants, all with pleasant ambiance and they are a mirror of the cosmopolitan, chaotic and spontaneous bangkok at night The rooms are modern but not cold as many new minimalistic modern hotels are. It was cozy The staff are very friendly, proactive and attentive. The breakfast is amazing, a rigorous, high class cooking, although the slowness of attention exasperated us quite a few times, as well as my colleagues that were staying in the hotel.

                One minus is that the rooms do not seem to have enough sound mitigation, since we could hear the tv sounds of the next room as if it was in our room, literally. Overall, we were very pleased with the service, quality, comfort and location. We would go back any time. However, We recommend improving the attention to be faster in the restaurant during breakfast and to make rooms more sound proof.

                Excelent location for sightseeing. Comfortable and quiet rooms.

                Staff strongly suggests that the guest can break something in the room.
