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

The hotel is located right on the riverside of Chaopraya River with a gorgeous view onto What Arun. The hotel combines great atmosphere with very tasteful interior design and top notch service. Also the staff are very friendly and will do everything to make your stay a pleasant one. Our room (Jasmine Suite) was very spacious, had a very nice... More

Stayed here 2 nights while in Bangkok. Location was good close to many of the places we wanted to visit. Right near Wat Pho, and Grand Palace with a short walk to an interesting night market that was full of produce and good street food. The view from the bar of Wat Arun is amazing. The room it's self was... More

We stayed at the Arun Residence for our first two nights in Bangkok before flying to Chiang Mai. The hotel was lovely and our room, which was called 'Chaba' was a cute little suite with the bedroom up a little staircase. The bathroom was particularly nice, with a big rain forest shower- and actual conditioner as well as shampoo, which... More

We stayed for two nights in the Arun Suite at the Arun Residence in the Old City of Bangkok. It's true that the view of the Wat Arun across the river, especially at night, is stunning. However, one cannot live on the view alone. There were two major issues. First, we could not get a cab driver to take us... More

My wife and I just completed a 3 week trip in Southeast Asia and stayed in many nice resorts but the best by far was the Arun Residence on the Chaopraya River in Bangkok, Thailand. This hotel has only 7 or 8 rooms but they are outstanding. We stayed in the Jasmine room which is one of 3 rooms there... More

Would definitely recommend coming here for dinner, looking a the views, enjoying the lovely food in the restaurant and then staying somewhere else. The cost is equiviliant of a 4* in London, but the quality of the rooms and service didn't quite live up to expectations. We stayed at much nicer, better priced hotels during our trip. Good points: Amazing... More

We spent three nights at Arun Residence during a short stay in Bangkok and were not let down. We had a split-level room that was quite compact, but very stylish and had everything we needed. The staff were generally really helpful, with the reception staff speaking excellent English and always willing to help. Arun Residence is located within a short... More

Firstly, the view of Wat Arun after sunset is truly something special, so I'd recommend you go just for that. However, don't stay too long as the service here is possibly some the worst I've encountered anywhere in the world. Overpriced food/drinks and disdainful staff is not really a winning combination, so it was disappointing to discover that these were... More
