Impressive, tasteful. Great location PROS: - Classy decor for somewhere so close to Khao Sahn R...

What we say: 4 stars

The Navalai offers very smart, hotel-style rooms in an excellent riverside location. While the brochure boasts rooms in four distinct styles, don't expect a big variation in the decor nor style of the rooms — that's not to say they aren't well decorated though — they're quite swish. Expect lots of white linen and subtle hues, the riverfront rooms warm up nicely in the afternoon light, while those off the river had a bit of a chill to them. The riverview rooms have larger bathrooms with a broad window allowing for a riverview from the tub. Spacious balconies. Facilities include flatscreen TVs, in-room WiFi and all the trappings you'd expect at this price range. The rooftop pool is in a splendid position for all-day baking, but the pool itself is quite shallow and, well, not all that big. That said, it looked to be a great spot to escape the city for a few hours. Back at ground level, you'll find the attached Aquatini bar and restaurant which is, like the hotel, the most upmarket option along this stretch of the river. As with the New Siam Riverside, those with a riverview room should be prepared for some racket from the passing ferries and other boat traffic — this isn't a sleepy bend of the river by any stretch of the imagination. As with most hotels in this range, a search on the internet should deliver significant discounts on walk-in rates — so let your fingers do the walking. For a mid-range riverside option near Khao San Road, Navalai represents excellent value for money.
