The Navalai offers very smart, hotel-style rooms in an excellent riverside location that’s practically on top of Phra Arthit express boat pier.

While the brochure boasts rooms in four distinct styles, don’t expect a big variation in the decor nor style of the rooms, all of which are quite swish. Expect lots of sumptuous white linen, dark turquoise art, light wooden furnishings and flourishes of traditional Thai and Colonial-era art adorning the headboards. Riverfront rooms warm up nicely in the afternoon light, while those off the river had a bit of a chill. The river-view rooms also have larger bathrooms with broad windows, allowing for views of passing boats from your tub. Spacious balconies are another bonus to the riverside editions. In-room amenities include flatscreen TV, DVD player, minibar, electronic safe, WiFi and keycard lock. While not as big as Riva Surya’s, the swimming pool at Navalai has the benefit of a rooftop location with great views. The midsize hotel also offers a Western/Thai restaurant, Aquatini riverside bar and a spa. Receptionists were very welcoming and approachable; one even told us that we could get cheaper rates by booking through Agoda. Navalai has some stiff competition in the newer Riva Surya just a few doors down; both are excellent if you’re keen on a Chao Phraya view. If these are too expensive, you could do a lot worse than New Siam Riverside.
