“warm hospitality, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I went to Bangkok for a medical checkup at Bumrumgrad, and I was amazed at how wonderful a hotel was so close to the hospital. The food was excellent and the pool was great for swimming laps. The owner was really helpful and made us feel welcome at all times.

Owned and managed by a very affable Englishman this delightful little hotel takes you to a Bangkok of a previous era.
Beautifully maintained and furnished. The staff are generous and helpful.
Room 311 complete with sitting room and a secluded balcony was just gorgeous.
Bangkok - well I can take it or leave it but will happily break the long haul to Europe just to stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and stay in a suite.

This hotel is just beautiful. Even though located in one of the busiest parts of Bangkok, it's a peace haven, surrounded by tropical trees. The rooms are lovely, look wonderful, very quiet and comfortable. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant is excellent.
Ariyasomvilla is the best hotel I've stayed at so far. I dont find enough superlatives to describe it!!
I recommend this place for couples or families.

I'm so happy that I've heard about this beautiful small hotel.
Most of our friends stayed near Siam Square, I'm glad we didn't.
The special Thai atmosphere (not only the beauty of the house and rooms)made it the right place for us. That and the personal wellcoming during our 4 days visit. It feels that they realy care and would like to give us every thing that can make our day better. We got many extras, (without asking us to pay.) For example, we were given a room - free - in our last day since our flight was at night. Many hotels can offer it - it helps so much (specially with children), but usually they don't. This is only one example. There are many more.
We felt that the hotel is run with love, and we loved it too.
We know this place will be waiting for us in our next visit in Bangkok.

We picked this hotel based on photos and other comments. It is near the river and close to the Sky Train. 2 Stops from the Siam Shopping Center and 4 stops from the night market. The room was great as well as the bathroom. We never really got to use our little balcony. We were only there one night. Breakfast was included and it was very nice. We had an hour Thai massage and it was priced reasonably. This was not the least expensive option we had considered but we were very pleased with the hotel and staff and would go back again.

My husband and I booked this hotel based on good reviews on the internet and we were not dissapointed. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every moment of it. We had a studio room on the ground floor. Very spacious and pretty with a personal touch that makes you feel special. Fresh orchids in the room. The bathroom is beautiful with a good size bath and a separate shower room, again decorated with orchids. The only thing we didn't like about the room was the balcony which was facing the back wall of the hotel so it was dark and you can sometimes smell the canal. We never bothered sitting in the balcony so it was not a big problem and we still think the room is excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a small hotel so the staff can remember all the guests and they make you feel at home. We met the owner who is originally from Manchester. He recommended places to go in Bangkok and we were not dissapointed with his recomendation. The location of the hotel is good and only 10 minutes walk to the skytrain. However we would suggest to take a taxi from the airport if you have a lot of lugage as it wouldn't be easy dragging your suitcases along the busy road of Bangkok. The restaurant is lovely. The foods are very tasty and the portion is good. We ended up having dinner in the hotel restaurant every night as we thought it was good value for money. Try the dessert made by the owner, it's delicious especially the chocolate tart. We chilled out in the garden after dinner as its's beautiful and very peaceful. The spa is good too. Cheaper than in the UK. Although the hotel is a little pricey, we thought it was worth every penny and would definitely stay here again if we ever come back to Bangkok.

You would actually not think it is possible if you are in hectic Bangkok: to find a colonial villa style hotel with large gardens, a quiet place and a good swimming pool like if you were somewhere on the outskirts of Bangkok. Well here it is.
We loved it. And next to the above it has a very good restaurant (don't forget to reserve a table), a fantastic massage and spa overlooking the garden and very very friendly staff.
Use the skytrain as Bangkok traffic can be very bad. Try the longboat to bring you to the musea via an agency. And enjoy Arisomvilla as much as we did!

Room Tip: We saw the tip of the deluxe rooms overlooking the pool, but we also liked the rooms more at the bac...

Ariyasomvilla Boutique Hotel is a very unique property in the centre of Bangkok. The original house was built by the current Owners Grandparents in 1942.
