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

This hotel is in one of the best locations in Bangkok if you are visiting as tourist and want to be near most tourist attractions and close enough to real Thai life. Excellent view of Wat Arun at sunset. Great restaurant facility. A great deal. The staff is terrific and very helpful.

Whether staying for one night or many, Arun Residence is a delightful place along the river with a great view of the Arun Temple. Wonderful breakfast, dinner and bar menu and view spots in the main building. A short walk to the pier and ferry across the river to the Temple or water taxi tour. Shopping and street food is...

First of all: great, comforting, friendly staff, how was giving there best to please the guests! The attached restaurant and bar supplied us with great drinks and some of the best thai food i have ever eaten. First choice to go when you want to be in the center of old Bangkok and still a very peaceful place.

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.
