When we arrived we were told we were being upgraded to the suite at no extra cost however we may experience some noise from the bar but this did shut at midnight. The room was fantastic and very well equipped. The balcony was outstanding and one of the best I have had anywhere in the world. The staff were friendly... More

This is a surprising find, nestled down a small lane. The hotel is situated by the river in an area that seems to be in redevelopment. Directly opposite the Temple of the Reclining Buddha makes this a fairly busy area. We stayed in the Sala Suite - up 4 flights of stairs but it has an amazing view of Wat... More

Spacious suite in hidden gem accommodation! There are so many phenomenal extras here... Every last touch of the elegant decor, fantastic food at the Deck restaurant, nestled by the river among many beautiful temples and next to the Grand Palace. Wish we had more time to spend here!

The 2nd floor is the best view on the street side you can see wat pho temple. The bathroom is new and the shower is spacious this is the view from our balcony. It's easy to access cabs, tuk Tuks, markets, and anything you want to do in bangkok

I had looked forward so much to stay at Sala Arun. Was here for dinner a couple of years ago and liked the place a lot. Now was the time for a longer visit. But I was quite disappointed. The taxi did not want to go into the small alley. Had to walk with heavy suitcases all the way down.... More

I was excited to stay at Sala Arun at the end of our trip with the beautiful view of Wat Arun over the river. However I was quickly disappointed with our room. At the time of booking our room you have the choice to including an extra bed for your room. My husband and I were traveling with my sister-in-law... More

We only had 20 hours in Bangkok and wanted to maximise the experience. Our family of 4 stayed in beautiful sala suite overlooking the river and Wat Arun. If you prefer boutique to bland 4 star - then this is a great choice. The location enabled us to easily walk to grand palace and Wat pho and enjoy a fantastic... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with a room overlooking the river with great views of Wat Arun and the boats going by from the balcony. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable but if you want the best room then book the suite on the third floor. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is great... More

We splashed out and stayed in the suite just for the purpose of the terrace and swing chair! The river view is wonderful especially watching the sun setting with a cold singha. The room is delightful with personal touches everywhere making the feel less hotely and more homely. You do need to be aware that there is a public bar... More

Just spent 3 wonderful nights at Sala Arun in their Sala Suite, top floor room and the views from the balcony make it worth having to lug your luggage up 3 flights of stairs. It's amazing. The room is huge with king bed, amazing bathroom and the balcony is large. At night, Wat Arun is lit up and just sitting... More
