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

You cannot fault Sala Arun on much: the rooms are large and comfortable, the staff are friendly and the view of the temples from the rooftop bar is fantastic. The only downside is noise - when we stayed there were visitors noisily ascending the stairs to reach the rooftop bar seemingly all night long and the workshops outside of our... More

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
