This small (25 room) boutique hotel was such a perfect spot to jet lag when we arrived in Bangkok, we stayed there one night on our way out as well. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very tastefully appointed. And in a country where "hot" shower, if you find one, really means "tepid", the really hot, powerful shower was luxurious. A wonderful counterpoint to the refreshing salt water pool.
The restaurant is nominally vegetarian, but they expand the definition to include seafood, so there is a diverse array of tasty dishes to choose from. I highly recommend paying to include breakfast. Everything we ate there was truly delicious.
This was an especially serendipitous find for us because my wife had lived in this house for three years in the 1970's - minus, of course, the pool and new buildings. She was delighted to see the original house, now the main dining room, still intact, and with very nicely integrated newer buildings to add the necessary space.
A nice attribute is the spa on premises offering a wide array of massage options, although similar opportunities can be found along nearby Soi 1 for much less cost for the only mildly adventurous.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Unlike other hotels Ariyasomvilla gives you a real sense of place and time but with all modern facilities you would expect from 5 star hotels. With 24 rooms Ariyasomvilla is very private and feels like a sanctuary. The pool is large enough for lap, while the spa offers excellent massage. ... more less
