Sala Arun is located at the end of a small soi right opposite the grand palace. It is within walking distance of some of the best sights in Bangkok, including Wat Pho, and a very short ferry rode across the river to Wat Arun. Our room had an amazing view of Wat Arun. Most nights we spent some time sat on the balcony with a beer admiring the view. The room was beautiful- massive comfortable beds, a huge bathroom with enormous walk in shower, complimentary toiletries, robes and slippers. The furnishings and decorations were authentically Thai, and the rooms were sparkingly clean. Each day we returned to the room and the towels had been replaced, bathroom cleaned. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was tasty with a small choice of cooked food, plenty of fresh fruit, cereal, toast and yoghurt. In all we really enjoyed the three nights we spent here. It was our first stay in Thailand, and Bangkok was our first stop. Sala Arun was a great start to a fantastic holiday. If I was to return to Bangkok, I would definitely stay at sala Arun!

This is your place if you want a quality and comfortable place to stay that is walking distance to Wat Po, The Grand Palace, and Wat Arun!

LOCATION: Wat Arun stares at you from across the river waiting for you to take a 5-minute walk down to the ferry across. Wat Po is literally right across the street. The Grand Palace is only a 10-15 minute walk away; only because it's so big and the main entrance is on the opposite side. If you're smart, you'll take advantage of the location and get to the temples as soon as they open to avoid the hordes of tourists. Not only is the location great for accessing the temples, but the surrounding streets have a local and laid-back feel with plenty of little markets.

SERVICE: The staff was very accommodating when we told them that we wouldn't be able to check in until 11PM and storing our luggage when we checked out in the afternoon. They speak English and can help you make reservations or contact restaurants/stores.

ACCOMMODATIONS: We stayed in the Srivichai & Lanna rooms; both have fantastic views of Wat Arun from their balcony. However, we were upgraded to the Sala Suite, which has even better views. The beds were firm (but comfortable) and the sheets were silky and fantastic to retire to after a long hot & sticky day of touring the city. Breakfast is included and was delicious!

I couldn't recommend a better place to stay in Bangkok if you're looking for quality and access to the major temples.

Room tip: Choose one of the rooms with a view of Wat Arun (Srivichai or Lanna), or if you like to "go big," the Sala Suite is a definite win.

Although, upon first arrival you will think you have been taken to the wrong place, once you get there, the views and general location make up for the trip down the alley you take to get there. Our rooms had amazing views of Wat Arun, really stunning. And you are across the street from Wat Pho, and just down the road from the Grand Palace and the temple of the emerald Buddha, all must sees while you are in Bangkok. In the mornings, if you walk towards the Grand Palace, you will see the Buddhist monks asking for alms and giving blessings to people who give the alms, quite a site. The staff was also very helpful and the breakfast was good. There is some construction going on next door, so if you are in a room adjacent to that wall, it can get loud during the day. But the noise stops early in the evening...

Located just up a quiet alley near Wat pho, with amazing balcony views of Wat Arun. I really enjoyed this position as it was easy to access most things but nice to come back to the quiet retreat and enjoy the views over the river. 1stly stayed in a Delux room where we had requested an extra bed. When we arrived we were surprised to find that the extra bed was actually the couch. However it was comfortable enough and everything in the room was good quality and the views over the river were lovely. After some travels, I returned to the hotel because I loved the location and this time was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the Suite room, It was a great room with a big balcony with a swing seat and outdoor setting and beautiful big window with full view of Wat arun. This was a great retreat for my last day in Bangkok. The staff were lovely but sometimes there were not staff speaking good english, particularly at breakfast time. The breakfast was average but adequate. There was breads, fruit and juice and a choice of cooked meals from a small menu. Because there was building happening next door causing noise during the day, they gave a voucer for a free meal at the Deck restaurant which was very kind. The noise stopped early anyway. The Deck restaurant is great.

Room tip: If you need an ectra bed make sure you find out if you actually get an extra bed or if somone will be sleeping on the couch.

Positive:

- Excellent location to visit the historical city center, 3 minutes walk from Wat Po, 15 minutes walk from Grand Palace
- Nice facilities, rooms and breakfast
- Staff not so good in English, but helpfull and friendly
- As plus they have a special agreement with Wat Po, and can arrange for you an in room massage, top quality professional masseuse directly from Wat Po!

Negative

- You will have some difficulties in moving outside the old town, no Skytrain or Subway in the surroundings
- The terrace of the lobby faces an awfull view, the Chao Praya bank. You have to go upstairs in a room to enjoy the beautifull Wat Arun view (upper floors are better)
- It is a depandance of the Arun Residence, so if you need a restaruant or some extra service you have to move there, or wait till the staff go an come back
