Indeed a great view on the Arun Wat and the river from our room. But that's all. The room was dirty and old (the sofa's cloth was damaged). The breakfast was awful, with bad quality food. The location is central, right across Wat Pho, but the little street to get at the entrance is disgusting (bad smell, no light, bad... More

Sala Arun is a good small hotel in very good location. It's near famous tourist places in Bangkok and next to Choa-praya river. View of Arun temple from hotel is very wonderful. There is some noise from boats but I think it's charm of the river. Breakfast is good; There are main breakfast that we order what we like and... More

We stayed for 2 nights and found it to be the most expensive and only disappointing hotel in a 3 week multi trip. The Plus Points. The restaurant was amazing, probably the best meal we had on our entire trip, the restaurant staff were very professional, attentive and you could have been in a 5 star hotel restaurant. The view...

When you're in Bangkok, put this restaurant in your itinerary. Sala Arun has absolutely beautiful views of Wat Arun across the Chao Phraya river. The food is amazing and doesn't quite hurt the wallet. This restaurant does get pretty booked up in the tourist seasons through November - May so, it would be best to book a table before you...

This B&B is one of the best i have tried. It is only 50mt from wat pho (i could see it from my room on the 2nd floor). The staff is super gentle and they speak a quite good english. The room is super beautiful and clean. Alzo the bathroom is modern and big. On the top at the 5th... More

Recently stayed two nights in a city view room. Very comfortable and spacious room. Food was awesome and brilliant staff.On our second night we went and had a few drinks upstairs overlooking the river and Wat Arun... Great views with a little rain so no sunset as such but will be back again. Only drawback was a leaking hand basin... More

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
