Stayed at the Aurum for 3 nights upon arrival in Thailand. Great location for exploring Bangkok's temples, and enjoyed the fact the hotel was away from the more commercial Siam district. Hotel is relatively basic but has everything you could need for a city base and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served next door at the... More

I started travelling around Thailand on the 1st of July and thought I would book a nice hotel for the first night, so I read some reviews and picked a quite expensive one. When we got there the hotel was down an alley, I had a basic room, and the breakfast wasn't too good either. Was worse than some of... More

We only stayed 2 nights at the Aurum Reiver Place on our way home from another part of Thailand. We arranged ahead of time for them to pick us up at the airport and take us to the hotel, for which I had sent them our flight details so they knew when to be ready for us. At 1100 baht... More

This trip involved several legs of various durations, starting in Bangkok, then Jakarta, a few days in Borneo and then finally Bali. In Bangkok we stayed at the Aurum River Palace Hotel. Foremost, we found this hotel to be... More

Aurum the River Place is a lovely hotel in an interesting part of Bangkok. We have stayed in Bangkok many times in different locations and were keen to have a riverside experience. We chose a room with a side river view ( booking directly with the hotel) and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed watching the activity on the river... More

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
