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

You will see much and hear much in this beautiful little bed and breakfast. Unless you are the type to be out late into the night, expect no sleep. We got bumped up to the Sala Suite on our visit, and while we were happy with the décor and view from the room, we were also right under the rooftop... More

Sala Arun is situated in the perfect location for sightseeing in Bangkok on the perimiter of Wat Pho. It is greatly enhanced by an excellent restaurant and rooftop bar supported by friendly staff who always has a smile and were very attentive. We were leaving at 3.45am for an early flight and were left a packed breakfast. A considerate gesture... More

This great little hotel gives a whole new meaning to the expression 'tucked away'! Our taxi driver had a struggle finding it as it is at the end of a narrow street, surrounded by warehouses and not very visible from the main road but well worth the search. It's not five star but friendly and cosy with fantastic views of... More

We recently stayed at Sala Arun in Bangkok and had a lovely stay. This hotel is well situated along the riverside, near Wat Po, providing comfortable boutique quality hotel rooms with excellent views of the Chao Phraya River and Wat Arun. We would happily return to Sala Arun for another stay next time we are in Bangkok. Pros Booking and... More

Nice place, good location, great views if Wat Arun, good to get to river boat, not near any sky train stations but tuktuks about to get around. Staff friendly, not all had good English but those that did were very helpful. Often not many staff working so if not available then couldn't get questions answered. Rooms were nice. Everything was... More
