When choosing a hotel in a big city you also choose what slice of the city you will have a taste of. Aurum The Riverplace offers a slice of old Bangkok and river life.
I stayed here for three nights and I loved it to pieces. The staff does everything to make your stay an enjoyable one, giving practical advise or help with bookings - all with a big smile.
I had a river front room which I truly recommend if it fits with you budget. The view adds to the whole Asian river life feeling and ferries and boats cruising up and down stream make you forget that your share Bangkok with another 7 million.
The room was impeccable, robes and slippers ready to use. The decor is both elegant and fresh.
I took the local ferry to Taksin and the BTS from there to go shopping and see central parts of town. Easy, quick and a total relief not to be stuck in the horrible Bangkok traffic.
At Aurum's doorstep awaits two riverside restaurants with a tasty menu and a lovely view of the Wat Arun. Both The Deck at Arun and the restaurant at SalaArun are 5 minutes walk from the hotel and highly recommendable. On my last night I dined under a moonlit and starry sky in an Asian metropolis - what more can you ask for?
If you're not into night clubs and the high life I trust you will take a liking to my slice of Bangkok.
