My husband and I just traveled to Thailand for 10 days for our 20th anniversary. We stayed three nights at the Arun residence and we are so happy we did. It is not near the big hotels but is a easy walk to the big attractions like the grand palace and temples. We easily took the train from the airport... More

Yes we had just one night in Bangkok - 12 hours to be precise. And rather stay in a faceless hotel near the airport we chose this. Wonderful location, great room, nice bar on the roof and the deck restaurant. All very lovely and the view of Wat Arun and the river was marvelous. We had a suite with its... More

We stayed for one night in November 2014 at the Arun Residence. A little tricky to get to because it is so central and Bangkok is very busy! Saying that though the location is perfect for walking to several of the temples and the Grand Palace. The hotel was quaint and quirky. The staff were pleasant and friendly. Would definitely...

I did not stay at the hotel, and I probably wouldn't because of the location. It's just not an area I want to be in. I prefer the Silom area with access to public transportation. I visit Bangkok often, and do not need to have The Grand Palace and Wat Po near by, and I would prefer not to be... More

A really charming little hotel. Unbeatable quiet location directly across the river from Wat Arun and steps away from Wat Po. The Grand Palace is just 5 mins by tuk-tuk and the lively Koh San Road area just a little further. The rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated with alot of character. The staff were friendly and helpful. The... More

Beautiful room, and the whole hotel has great atmosphere with superb view of Wat Arun, and convenient location. This is a "boutique" hotel with a private and secluded atmosphere. Also really enjoyed eating at The Deck - the hotel restaurant. I would probably spring for a suite next time, although oru room, "Chaba" was nice too. Little mezzanine bedroom located... More

Fantastic little guest house. No, it isn't a five star hotel - because it's so much more than that. Views are fabulous, rooms are charming, a/c and wifi worked, right next to Wat Pho for sights and useful landmark to direct taxi drivers. Easy enough to hop on a water is a couple of lanes down to Banglamphu. No you... More

Where to start...Well don't expect taxis drivers to know where this one is, in fact I ended up directing the taxi driver to the area. Whilst next to the river it does mean that there is no other way to get to it taxi and river bus are the only two means available. Position - Great for tourist spots, the... More

Stayed for two nights in Arun Suite. The view faces Chao Phraya and not as awesome as some might say. There wasn't much noise from the restaurant which was below our suite so it was good rest. Bed comfortable to sleep and room was clean. No bugs and such spotted. Breakfast which was included in the package was average. If... More
