This was my first trip to Thailand and I was apprehensive about where to stay as I did not want an impersonal glitzy run of the mill hotel. I cannot emphasize just how happy I was with Sala Arun. It looks a bit deceiving when approaching the hotel as it is down a small alley, but from the moment you enter it just lifts your spirits. I booked us into the suite thinking I would treat myself as it was our anniversary. It is one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. It was so large that we did not even use some areas e.g. dining area. The bathroom is huge and the room itself is decorated beautifully with a king size bed and large LCD Television. The highlight was however being able to sit on the swing couch on the balcony and watch the boats go by and the activity at the temple.
If ever I return to Bangkok this will be my one and only choice.
