Great location and excellent view to Wat Pho. Close to Temples, Palace, Khao San Road and Pier to Wat Pho or anywhere else. Friendly staff and really helpfull. It is not cheap but worth it!!! I RECOMMEND IT!

Clean, amazing views. Close to temples. Spectacular service. I was even upgraded to a suite my second night. Quiet even though in a busy area. Relatively close to things, but would be better if more restaurants nearby.

This is absolutely the best place to stay in Bangkok. Friendly staff, comfortable and very nice decorated rooms and the view............stunning!!! The What Arun, the What Po and the Grand Palace all from your room or the roof top bar! The express boat at your doorstep and an easy walk to China Town, what do you want more. We had... More

This small hotel (7 rooms only) has a perfect location if you want to explore Grand Palace, Wat Arun and Wat Pho, and if you want to go "downtown" you take the small ferries from pier 8. We had a very nice room with a small balcony facing the river and a great view to Wat Arun and looking on... More

The location is hard to beat for seeing such sights at Wat Pho, Wat Arun and the Grand Palace. All are either a short walk or a quick ferry ride away. The room was fine, but a bit on the small side. The one we had faced the street so it was a bit noisy, so I would definitely recommend... More

I only had 36 hours in Bangkok and wanted to concentrate on seeing the Grand Palace and surrounding temples. Sala Arun is in a perfect location, just a few minutes walk away. My room with the Wat Pho view was spacious and clean. Bathroom was well-stocked and had a large walk-in shower (hot running water in my room was at... More

This review is on the rooftop bar of this hotel and not the hotel properly. The Bitter Deck bar on the rooftop is open to any customer. It is a nice & cosy place above the river. Since it is located right in front of the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), it offers one of the best views ever. I... More

If you are going to explore the Bangkok Chinatown area, as well as the Wat Po, Royal Palace, and Museum area, then it's hard to find a better location than this. Combined with the view and the excellent service by staff, it's a wonderful place to stay. I recommend learning to use the water ferry and have a good map... More

You have to be a little adventurous when staying at this hotel. If you are used to a western hotel, this might not be for you. The hotel is located in a warehouse alley, so if you are looking for a grand entrance, you won't get it. Also, get a room that faces the river, or you will have a... More
