This 68-rooms unique boutique property is located in Bangkok’s preserved Rattanakosin area where houses and shops have been tastefully converted into stylish apartments, cafes and galleries.

Riva Surya is surrounded by some of the city’s most treasured historical sites like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho temple and the National Gallery. Pier 13 is situated next to the hotel which makes it easy to get around: Just hop on a speed boat leaving to the city centre and the Saphan Taksin BTS station every 15 minutes, or book one of the long tail boats to explore the city’s klongs.

The beautifully appointed rooms combine modern elements with a traditional Thai style and have everything you need for a comfortable stay in Bangkok.

The Rooms
The hotel has four room categories:
Urban Rooms are facing the tree lined Phra Atit Road and have a private balcony with a view of low-rise old shops and houses of the old town. Due to the double glazing, guests won’t notice the potential noise from the street.

The Riva Rooms are facing the river but do not have a balcony. They are tastefully decorated with Thai furnishings and a comfortable armchair.

A stunning view of Chao Phraya River welcomes you as you enter the 40 sqm Deluxe Riva Room. Contemporary Thai furnishings and comfortable armchairs extend to a tilted balcony.

The Premium Riva Room offers the same facilities as the other rooms in a space of 48 sqm.

Connecting rooms are available as well.

The Facilities
The babble & rum restaurant is an ideal dining venue that lets you sample traditional Thai and Western cuisine whilst The Garden offers a relaxing setting for an intimate meal or discerning cocktails.

Enjoying a drink at the riverside bar is a perfect way to end an active day of sightseeing in Bangkok. Guests can enjoy spectacular views due to its location at Chao Phraya River. The large swimming pool and terrace offer a unique experience.
