A lovely hotel, the room was clean, nice view over the river, fridge, good size bathroom. The staff were brilliant, they gave directions, maps lists of restaurants everything you need. Book here, you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here for 3 nights in January 2014. The hotel is very comfortable, very clean and faultlessly maintained, and very well located near the Royal Palace, also not too far from ferry stops. Very friendly and helpful manageress, I recommend taking her recommendations for restaurants. Views of the river are limited from most rooms, and though I did get one... More

We booked directly with the hotel and right from the first email came confirmation and advice plus the added service of pick up from the airport for a very reasonable rate. We're greeted very warmly by the owner (?) and her excellent assistant. Our room was overlooking the river - very nicely appointed and quite spacious for two people. Aurum... More

Location is nice, by the river, close to some nice restaurants. Room was really nice, very clean and good quality. The girl at reception was exceptional. Extremely polite, friendly and professional with a fantastic standard of English. Highly recommend.

Hotel barely has a river view. We were here at the end of Dec 2013 and a new building was constructed right in front of it. The rooms were clean if you ignore some minor details (mold on lamp shades and stained grout in bathroom). It was pretty noisy for us - we got woken up at 5am from construction... More

The location is okay and the rooms were decent (if a bit noisy) but I wanted to touch on what happened when we checked out. A couple days before check out, we asked the front desk to get us a taxi to the hotel the morning we were checking out. They arranged it for us, although at a price that... More

Hotel is conveniently located in the old town close to the main palaces and temples, which means you can avoid taxis and tuk tuks scums. Neighbourhood is quite scary at first sight, however didn't have any problems at all. Room was very small but had everything we needed.

The place is ideally located by the river side, right next to Wat Pho and a couple blocks from the Grand Palace. And right across the river from the Wat Arun. What makes this place special though was the service!! The ladies at the front desk make you feel like you are visiting family. They came out to greet the... More

The Aurum River Palace is a beautiful place, with beautiful 5 star rooms and service! It's located right across from the Royal Palace and right down the street from the central pier, making getting around Bangkok via the river super easy and continent.

It's a little quaint hotel with very few amenities. Breakfast is included with a choice of American or simple prawn fried rice. I would skip it and aim for authentic thai street food if you would like to have more of a Bangkok experience. Staff seems friendly enough and communication was easy until we had a complaint (of course -... More
