We stay in the room split across two levels, ground floor: very spacious hall entrance and bathroom, wardrobe, security box, first floor bed, and small TV area with a confy sofa and small table. It was a very spacious!!!. Our room did not have a pleasant view so we kept the blinds close luckily we only stay for 1 night....

I stayed here for only 1 evening with my family. The hotel is an absolute delight and I cannot recommend it enough. My sisters and I slept in a suite at the top of the hotel with a private balcony overlooking the river. My parents had the room next door which was split across two levels. The rooms were large...

We searched for the restaurant as we wanted to eat over the river and the eating area is partly over a balcony. A busy small restaurant but with a nice atmosphere. All the dishes we had were flavoursome and presented well. At times it took a while to get service but the staff were busy. We ordered 6 dishes a...

I never leave trip advisor reviews, but this place really deserves the recognition! Wonderful hotel, lovely, attentive staff and magnificent views! Strongly recommend! Close to Wat Pho, the Grand Palace and across the river from Wat Arun this place is perfectly situated! Plus a hope on the express boat to central pier and Bangkok is your oyster!

"Wat Arun", across the river, all viewed directly from your bedroom window. You cannot ask for a better location to visit the major Historical Area of Bangkok than your stay at the Arun Residence. The warm, friendly very helpful staff, was always available to assist and made our stay quite memorable.

We spent a terrific four nights at Arun Residence. It's got a lot of character--and I mean that in the most positive possible way. Our room, Lotus, had the bed in an upstairs loft--luckily, with its own air-conditioning unit. From our lower floor, we were fascinated with the view directly down to the daily life of the soi below, and...

Highly recommended for those who want to be in the old part of the city and/or on the river. Literally, right on the Chao Praya and across the street from Wat Po. We stayed in the Havelli suite, 1 meter above and laterally from the river. It reminded us pleasantly of being on a boat, right down to the waves...

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!

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.
