“Perfect start to our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

This hotel is everything you want & more. This trip was for our wedding & honeymoon. We have previously visited Bangkok & had to start here in order to register our wedding at the British Embassy before heading to Koh Samui to be married.

We choose this hotel on the basis of other trip advisor reviews & we were so pleased we did. The hotel is intimate, beautiful, just perfect. We had our two & a half year old daughter with us & we choose it really as it seemed to be set away from the hustle & bustle of Bangkok. Saying this though, the sky train is just around the corner & in two stops you reach the main areas Siam square etc.

The staff were lovely, food absolute heaven. The restaurant was so good we ate there nearly every night and we never normally would do this.

We stayed for three nights and then went to the Islands & Chang Mai, coming back here for our last night before heading back to England & I can honestly say that we were all looking forward to spending our last night of our trip back at the Ariyasoma & we were not disappointed.

If we were ever to visit Bangkok again we would definitely stay here again.

Ariyasomvilla is absolutely divine and one of the very best boutique hotels we have ever had the pleasure in which to stay. The hotel's car service promptly transferred us from the airport and we were greeted with iced tea and escorted to a gorgeous and quiet room overlooking a courtyard. The room was spotless and beautifully appointed with thoughtful touches of fresh flowers and exotic fruit. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was incredibly helpful. We want to return to Bangkok for the sole purpose of staying at Ariyasomvilla!

I couldn't believe this hotel exists in the midst of all the craziness of Bangkok. All the way down the street of the major hospital and lots of other hotels and offices and then you arrive at a quiet garden, house, hotel, spa and pool.
We were warmly welcomed by staff that spoke more English than most people I encountered in Thailand.
The room (210) was absolutely perfect. The decorations are all local and Thai-inspired. The hotel is all in the family and they give so much individual care you can tell.
Breakfast was included and had tons of options (all vegetarian (does include eggs). Dinner has seafood options. The restaurant is in the main house and you can just visit the restaurant and check the place out.
I'm sure it's expensive for Bangkok but this hotel was worth every penny. Swimming in that pool looking up at the hotel is one of my best memories in Bangkok and I will definitely recommend the hotel to friends and do my best to return!

Phoem Chit (I'm sure that was spelled wrong but you can find it on the BTS map!) is the metro stop only 5-10 minutes away (walking).

Room Tip: I stayed in 210 - it overlooks the pool but is still fairly quiet.

This hotel really is a beautiful quite oasis in the middle of Bangkok. The staff are friendly and helpful...we arrived on a late night flight from Australia, were hungry and in disparate need of a cocktail. We got whisked outside, a fan was bought out to us and we had drinks and food within ten minutes. Breakfasts which were included in our room rate were delicious. It is slightly out if the way with regard to other dining options and shopping but a 80 baht tuk tuk ride will get you where you need to be. Oh, and the massages are fantastic.

We stayed only one night at Ariyasomvilla but it is the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. It is just off Sukhumvit Road, close to the Skytrain, as well as close to Makassan Railway station which runs directly to the airport. It is also two minutes walk to the long tail ferries that run along the canal. The room we booked was the smallest room available (Room 310) yet with a large bath, a shower built for two, and a decent sized balcony it would have measured 45-50 sqm which actually makes it quite a large room, only further accentuated by its lovely high ceilings. The pool is a full twenty metres long and set in a beautiful, peaceful garden setting in the heart of the city; the noise of which is totally shut out once you are in your room. The house was built in the 1940's and is nothing short of stunning, and appointed in beautiful, antique and classical furniture. Despite all this, this is not the best part of staying at Ariyasomvilla. The best part is the staff, who are delightful and will do anything to assist a guest. We arrived by limousine but unfortunately left a little teddy in the car. When we explained this to the hotel staff they arranged for the driver to find our treasured travelling partner and return it within 15 minutes. The fridge in the room has free water and a couple of cans of soft drink which is far better than having a minibar full of items for sale. Wifi is provided free and breakfast, which is perfectly cooked, and presented, is extremely inexpesive (less than US$7 per head). After checking out we had a few hours before our flight so Ariyasomvilla gladly looked after our luggage and arranged for us to have a shower to freshen up when we returned, even though we had already actually checked out. If you really want to treat yourself, and someone very special, stay at Ariyasomvilla. The restaurant is mainly vegetarian but serves eggs and fish, and the food is delicious. Next time we're in Bangkok we will stay here again!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 310 on level three overlooking the pool. This was a lovely room yet it was the lea...

This was a great place to break our journey and chill on route to Myanmar. The owner is English and very friendly. It has a nice pool but we did notice a rather nasty smell wafting around now and again whilst sitting round the pool. Think it was the drains. The food is good, no meat but there is fish. Beware the vegetable puree!! We can eat hot food but this seared our palates and we couldn't finish it. There was no warning that it was even spicy!! The room was huge, in fact we had a suite even though we hadn't booked it. Beautiful furniture in the room and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed.

Very good design and service. Located about 10 min walking from BTS. The owner is friendly. The room might not as quiet as you would like to be as it was the old house especially when the next room is closing the door. But overall, this is one of the the best small boutique hotels in Bangkok.

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
