Average to Above Average with very limited dining.
Nice hotel, beautiful views of Wat Arun & Presidential Palace. Located on river in a very dirty area with few dining options. On Saturday & Sunday, not a single front desk staffer spoke a word of English. Nice, but probably many better choices in Bangkok.

The hotel was right next to three of the major sites in Bangkok (Wat Pho, Wat Arun, and the Grand Palace). All three were in walking distance. Perfect place to explore old Bangkok. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff were beyond friendly and very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, easy walk from Sanam Chai station. Our room had a great view of the highly entertaining Chao Phraya river. We enjoyed the rooftop restaurant for both breakfast and dinners. Also close to Grand Palace. Glad we chose the Riva Arun!

It was a lovely hotel and staff were pleasant however having turned up to the property it wasn’t like the photos. I thought this was right on the river whilst it is literally a short walk you are surrounded by small local shops and 2 overprices restaurants over the road. It’s in a good location as we did an excursion and we only had to meet over the road but it wasn’t how the photos portray but nevertheless it was still a pleasant stay.

Top class service from the staff. An issue with the first room meant I was immediately moved to another of the same type, premium jacuzzi suite. The whole stay was just amazing and relaxing, just what I needed. The view of Wat Arun of course stunning. My only small moan would be that the wonderful rooftop restaurant was always somewhat chaotic. The staff always seemed in a flutter, getting your first drink seems to take a long time, and food service can be very slow...there are only 15 ish 2 seater tables so the reason for the above mentioned is not obvious. Having said that, the staff are very helpful, the Thai fusion food is excellent but the limited menu seemed to run out of some items very early in the evening. Overall definitely worth a visit, I certainly will stay again. It beats a lot of the high priced hotels on the river in BKK

WONDERFUL! We really enjoyed our stay at Riva Arun. The location was great and that was the priority when we were planning our trip. We planned on being out of the room and exploring most of the time so the hotel amenities were not a real concern. Riva Arun proved to be top notch in every way! We had a beautiful, well-appointed room but what made the stay truly memorable was the staff. Everyone was friendly and always helpful. I would say that they went out of their way, except it was obvious that this is how they treat every guest.
