We were delighted with this small, delightful hotel in downtown Bangkok. It is beautifully located, close to some of the main attractions, an easy walk to some. The service was excellent, the food real Thai. Witness to this was that, despite its small number of rooms, the lovely dining facilities, overlooking the river were full with many local guests for...

We spent our last night in this beautiful boutique hotel on the banks of the Chaophraya river with stunning views over Wat Arun. The hotel and rooms were really well designed with lots of character. We had complementary drinks in the rooftop bar watching the sun set over the temple (tables with views were in high demand!) and then went... More

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

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
