Sala Arun is a lovely boutique B&B with free WiFi, wonderful views and cosy rooms. We stayed at the suite (Delux room) which was pricey but worth the extravagance. It was a great room with a big balcony with a swing seat and outdoor setting and beautiful big window with full view of Wat arun. The property was well maintained,... More

We normally stay in the glitzy hotels of Sukhumvit when in Bangkok, but decided to try something 'boutique' this time. Sala Arun is adjacent to The Grand Palace, Tha Tien pier and Wat Pho temple. It is a longer taxi ride in from the airport, and not in a 'temple of shopping' area. It is totally hidden down a small... More

Stayed 3 nights in their top floor suite and it was simply magical. The lovely Wat Arun was directly across the river from us and it served to be a great setting for our holiday. This little 7-room Bed and Breakfast setup was charming and it felt like home. The very attentive and friendly staff just about enhanced the experienced.... More

This place was great! It is a quaint B&B with traditional decor/wood. It is beautiful. We asked for an upper floor, with a view of Wat Arun. It is stunning, especially at night. We also ate dinner on the patio one night. The food was good and the views were unbeatable. The location is perfect. You can easily get to... More

The hotel is excellently positioned such that will allow you to visit by foot in only one day the most important and famous tourist attractions from Bangkok, and if you will get a room with view at Wat Arun, the experience will be better! The rooms look great with nice furniture and great bathroom! The staff is very friendly. On... More

We thought we had booked a room with the Wat Arun view over the river as the photo on the website indicated that we had. Instead we got a partial view of Wat Pho and it was noisy thanks to the building works next door that started very early in the morning and finished late in the evening. They offered... More

We had a lovely suite on the third floor with a stunning view of Wat Arun and the busy Chaophraya river, with things going on day and night. The room was a good size for three to share, with a privacy screen and large sofa, table and chairs and a desk. The bathroom/dressing area was spacious and well laid out.... More

Sala Arun is the perfect base to explore the Temple area of Bangkok. Get a river view room on the second floor and pow! from your balcony is the gleaming golden spire of Wat Arun across the river. The room decoration is lovely and comfortable. We stayed here for Loy Krathong, which involves the river festival along the Chao Praya.... More
