Khaosan Area Hotels

Riva Suriya The pool, bar and river-view rooms at Riva Suriya

Most of the hotels around Khaosan are definitely in keeping with its budget 'backpacker' image. However, there are a few nice places in the area that will allow you to enjoy the convenience of being close to everything and yet be comfortable. The two most notable of these are the Navalai River Resort and the new in 2012 Riva Surya. An even newer, less fancy, option is Baan Chart Hotel, right around the corner from one end of Khaosan Road.
