Nice place but way over priced, the main attraction is the fact that the hotel is located front row to the river opposite to the temple but it comes with a price… 24 hours aqua traffic and noise coming out of ferries, cargo boats, tourist boats and you name it. the rooms are clean and well designed till the smallest...

We stayed in the Jasmine Suite for three nights. We did have to wait awhile for check in. The room was clean and beautiful. The wifi was pretty spotty. The view we had of Wat Arun was amazing, and we were within walking distance of Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. The area was really quaint and it was easy... More

we stayed in Arun residence for 3 nights at the end of our trip. Location was good, staff were professional and friendly and we had the Lotus suite which was nice. I wouldn't suggest this is a 5 star hotel, I might suggest a boutique hotel. The one reason above any other hotel to stay here is the view- you... More

If you want a great position on the river with great views of wat arun and right next door to wat po and the grand palace this is a good place to stay. Rooms are comfortable but try to get one of the suites where you have a view of the river and a balcony. Food in the restaurant is... More

I have come back to this place for the view of the arun temple. Hence one must ask for a river view. No point being here if no room with river view. The rooms are beautiful, rather large and beautifully decorated. The view of the temple is magnificent. Wat poh is just across the road and royal palace too. Those... More

Coming there more over 6 years now it's still one of the most beautiful, welcoming and romantic places in the old heart of Bangkok's Rattanakosin Island on the banks of the Chao Phraya River near the King's Palace & Wat Pho Temple! A calm Boutique Jewel in a old wonderful restored Teak Warehouse you find 6 lovely decorated rooms with... More

This place will depend on what type of traveller you are. We stayed here first 3 nights of our 1 month SE Asia tour on honeymoon. If your a first timer to Bangkok as we were this probably isn't the place for you. It's hard to get too, it's in old city.. Only close to temples but nothing else Bangkok... More

This boutique hotel's location, directly across from Wat Arun, is a treat - very little street noise, which is a major plus in the busy Bangkok district. However, The noise from the river boats starts early. We stayed in the suite on the top floor, which had a private balcony, living area and a very comfortable bed with super soft... More

Stayed here for 3 nights when we first arrived in Bangkok. Had some trouble finding it as the 1 taxi and 1 tuktuk driver had know idea where they were going. Best bet is to get them to had to the grand palace and have a printed map with you. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the rooms... More

We stayed at the Arun for our first 3 days in Thailand last weekend. As everyone mentions, it is perfectly situated, right on the river and directly across the river from the Temple of the Dawn. The temple was the first thing we saw every morning when we got up, and every night before we went to bed. It was... More
