This place is just great. You do not get to number 1 or 2 out of 700+ reviews without being incredibly good at what you do. The odd negative reviews appear to have been written by some strange people.
However if you are averse to background do ask for a room away from the klong ( river) and the school. We were upgraded to a truly beautiful riverside suite but the noise from the school & the river boats was so bad I thought my wife was going to kill me! The rush hour seemed to start about 6.00am. On day 2 the school was quieter & she was more used to the boats but it came as a shock after all the reviews that talked about tranquility .
The rooms are lovely, the decor throughout is sensational & incredibly tasteful. Some idiot complained about a small pool - given the location the pool is huge as are the pool towels.
Vegetarian sausages & bacon are never going to catch on but other than that the breakfasts are good and dinner fantastic. We rarely eat in hotels but then this is not like a plastic fantastic and the quality of the food was just so outstanding that we ate here both nights.
I headed my review "no one mentioned the noise - luckily" I said luckily because if I had known about the noise I would not have booked it & that would have been a great shame as this place is very special.
Staff friendly & charming.
You can get cheaper but at these prices I doubt you will get better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
