Just finished a 2 day stay at Aurum The River Place Hotel at the end of a 3 week trip to Thailand. What a perfect hotel for us, very close to all the major attractions, most of all the river, right out the door. The staff were very helpful with transit solutions, restaurant suggestions. The Supatra across the river from the Maharaj ferry stop is great, good views, food and service. The deck at the Aurum residence was great as well. Most of all, quiet at night, not for people who want a club scene. Staff allowed us a late check out, perfect for our departure time, what a bonus. Strongly recommend this hotel, Bangkok is wonderful, but a little refuge is also wonderful!

If you are looking for a small, reasonably priced hotel in Bangkok, this is the place. The Aurum is located in the old city, very close to many of the most important sites you'll want to see. The rooms are very clean, attractive, nicely furnished, and if you're lucky enough to get one with a river view you'll be very lucky. You can watch the activity on the Chao Phraya all day and all night. I pulled a chair up and spent an hour one night watching all the boats traveling up and down the river. He service in the hotel was very good. My family got lots of excellent information from the staff. Their suggestions for local restaurants were excellent--best Thai food we had the whole time we were in the country. The hotel has an elevator, so no need to worry about walking up flights of stairs to get to your room in the heat. I will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with a river view are the best. They are a little more expensive, but worth it.

Aurum the River Place is a wonderful small hotel in middle of Bangkok. My family (husband and grown daughters) stayed in two rooms at the beginning of August.

The staff really goes the extra mile to make sure their guests have everything they need. Breakfast is served to your preferences out by the river each morning and the rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable. The staff was always cheery and trying to help you with something.

The hotel is also in a great location and very close to Wat Po and the Grand Palace. The hotel arranged a day tour and transportation to the airport for my family.

Would recommend staying at Aurum the River Place and encourage you to take advantage of the good location to walk around Bangkok.

This is a beautiful small hotel that goes the extra mile in terms of making our stay a memorable one. OK the views are not all the same but rooms are very clean, very comfortable and have extra touches such as lavender scented toiletries including body lotion. The hotel is well located for river trips and for seeing the Grand Palace and surrounding complex.There are some good restaurants within walking distance. The Aurum river hotel hotel stands out in the friendliness, helpfulness and caring of the staff.

Room Tip: best room is on the top floor with river view
