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.
We stayed at this lovely boutique hotel in May 2019. It’s situated at the end of a side street just off Sukhumvit and because of its location, it feels secluded and not like you’re in the midst of a bustling city like Bangkok. We had dinner at its restaurant a couple of nights and my partner who’s a vegetarian really enjoyed the food. Even though I’m not a vegetarian, I didn’t miss not having any meat during our meals as the seafood was fresh and yummy. Service was great and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was fantastic as well with lots of a la carte choices. We liked the fact that it’s not a buffet breakfast so there’s no wastage and we didn’t end up over-eating. Lovely hotel and highly recommended!
My wife and I visited Ariyasomvilla approximately five years ago (I just put June 2019 because that's as far back as the date selections go). This place had such a lasting impression on us that I had to write a review. I know it may no be very helpful to write a review five years later. Still, I remember that the food was delicious. The food in Thailand is absolutely amazing. For a hotel, the food and Ariyasomvilla was not far behind. On our first night there,I had the soft shell crab. It was excellent. What I remember most about the villa are the following: 1) The fresh fruit in the morning; 2) our beautiful suite; 3) David, the owner, who was very gracious; and 4) that butterfly pea tea. It was definitely an oasis, in a vibrant and action packed city. We would definitely recommend Ariyasomvilla to anyone staying in Bangkok.…
This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel and this time we were a little disappointed as standards seem to have slipped. The room allocated was very nice, albeit we had to walk through our bathroom to use a very small balcony, however the room and bathroom were very nice. We were also put in the annexe and had to use the lift and stairs in the staff areas of the hotel which were dark and cluttered and as returning guests can't understand why we would be allocated this room, we expected better service for returners. Food was excellent as usual, but very expensive. Swimming pool needs a thorough clean as algae was growing on the tiles in the pool. Certain cleaning jobs obviously overlooked. Spa was excellent as usual and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
This property was recommended by my travel agent after I described what kind of property I prefer. I was enchanted by many things; the lovely room decor (orchids everywhere, I particularly loved the floating bowl of orchids in the bathroom!), the quiet pool amid mature tropical landscaping, the attentive professional staff, the food variety and the charming humorous company of owner David at breakfast (which was always outstanding!).
The property is a very lovely heritage building with beautiful gardens and overall friendly service. The only downside was that we were given a small slightly cramped room (no place to do any simple exercise/stretches ) without a balcony. For the price we had paid this was quite a disappointment. Would be better if this was mentioned on the website or if these small rooms were priced differently so guests could choose accordingly.
