“Oasis in a mad city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We arrived very early overnight from London, like 08:00 am and within an hour our room was ready so we managed to get sleep before tackling the sights. Well done Ariyasomvilla!!!
If you want relative tranquility in Bangkok, bedrooms that feel like you are not in a hotel (had a free upgrade to a suite) great food, outstanding service and excellent value then this is for you.
The owners are involving with their staff and mingle with guests. It feels as though you are staying in their home.
The food is just wonderful. A veggie restaurant but also serving seafood, the dishes are interesting, delicious and beautifully presented. Service and attention could not be better. We were only here 3 nights on our way elsewhere and did not want to leave.
Nice pool, spa and you can get traditional Thai massages at good prices compared to top hotels. Ok if you want cheap cheap, go and find one down the road but you will get what you pay for.
It also has a handy location for all transport in the city, Skytrain, MTR etc and is situated at the end of a quiet road so no passing traffic, only the water bus.
We have stayed in lots of places all around the world and this is one on the list that we will remember and return to if we are in BK again.
If some strange reason you decide not to stay here, then go for a meal at least!!

Stayed on the first and last nights of my trip to South-East Asia as a treat. Fabulous staff, gorgeous rooms, great food and great value for money. An oasis of calm in busy Bangkok, would definitely stay again if I visited Bangkok.

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.
