Myself and the girlfriend spotted this little gem on TripAdvisor whilst looking for a cute cocktail spot in which to spend the first night of our 5 week travels - and boy we were not disappointed.
Gorgeous setting across the river from the Wat Arun,...More
My problem with this place lies with the housekeeping, but I guess management should be more responsible and check the rooms to ensure they are properly cleaned. I'll get more to my room in a bit.
Upon arrival, I was impressed. This place is a...More
The room is still has the old Thai feeling since they decor with some unique style. The view is of course the highlight if you like the river and temple atmosphere. Breakfast was good and plenty, next to the river deck in the morning is...More
We booked a room in Sala Arun for our last night in Thailand but were informed by email 24hrs before that renovations at Sala Arun were not completed and we would be accommodated in a suite room in the „sister hotel“, Arun Residence, at no...More
Great stay at Arun Residence. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Location was excellent, walking distance toWhat Pho, Grand Palace and long tail boat ride. Restaurant was wonderful. Recommend using car service as the hotel is not in a Main Street.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

As other responders noted this is not a luxury property. My wife and I stayed in the Arun Suite, with a private balcony overlooking the river, with a great view. If you can get that room I think it would be a great romantic honeymoon spot. I don't know about the other rooms. The hotel is small and the decor has a charming eccentricity and a "funky" ambience. I mean that in a positive way. As others noted it has a great location for walking to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun is across the river. A ferry terminal is nearby to cross the river. Amorosa Bar is a nice spot to have a drink and watch the sunset and the restaurant on site is convient for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Other dining is within walking distance.
