Delighted with this hotel. Perfect position right on the river near Royal Palace and Wat Pho but really quiet. Friendly, efficient staff, comfortable room with individual character and good food on terrace by the river. Not for people who can't cope with steep stairs

Walked a side street to try to view Wat Arun. Suddenly Arun Residence was in front of us. A beautiful view to Wat Arun. Stunning, really. The restaurant is very low key, and really has no tourists. Stop, escape from the crowds and try a beverage. Enjoy the moment!

Stayed in Villa Haveli, great situation right on the river, very comfortable, spotlessly clean. Extremely convenient for sightseeing - recumbent Buddha 5 minutes walk, Grand Palace 10 minutes etc. What went wrong then? Villa is outside hotel down alleyway opposite rubbish bins. When someone chose to ring our bell at 4.15 am on our first night, the hotel did not... More

Stopped by after visiting the reclining Buddha. Just a 5-7 minute walk from the exit and right on the water. Great salads, great soups, great juices. Recommend for lunch after a hot visit. Too: ask up front for items out of stock. We found spinach soup and rocket salad were both out of stock after we ordered them.

I feel as if the cosmic puppet master walked me into this lovely accommodation. And indeed the events that transpired support this idea. The Arun Residence was clean and cozy. Cozy in the way that only a Bangkok bohemian hotel situated on the banks of Chao Priya across from Wat Arun can be. I had the pleasure of staying in... More

It’s in an old house right on the river and because of it’s low key urban vibe I had liked the look of the hotel when I had eaten at “The Deck” four years ago because of a top recommendation from TA. It had a great atmosphere then and good food, expensive but the experience warranted it. Sadly the old... More

This is a lovely small hotel in a perfect location. If you desire something different and more personal this is definitely the place to stay. There is an excellent restaurant and roof top bar as part of the hotel.

this is a great little hotel. Right on the river with a wonderful view. Great food and great staff. Stayed in the Arun Suite on the top floor with balcony overlooking the river. Fantastic rooftop bar. Highly recommended. Think you get a better rate if you book direct with them. Going back next weekend!

We spent a view days here with our five years old daughter. We enjoyed a lot! We liked the river view, the rooms are well designed with a mixture new furniture and antiques, We also liked the beautiful wooden floor. Nice little things like high quality shampoo... As we had no time for breakfast the last day the cook made... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
