This is a lovely little hotel right by the riverside, where you can enjoy the view of the Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn) from your breakfast table. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and nice, there was no traffic noise around. You couldn´t find a better location, close to everything you would like to...

We stayed for 2 nights and found this a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay. We felt it was good value for the price, given the quality and comfort of the rooms, and the staff were very welcoming. The location is good - across the road from the Grand Palace and Wat Po, and amongst the riverside markets which...

My daughter and I stayed at the Arum hotel for 3 nights. We did think at first that the room was a little small but somehow the owner had thought of everything and there was a place for everything. The beds were of the highest quality and so we got wonderful sleeps. The roomi itself was elegantly furnished and the...

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Aurum. We stayed in Room 401, which we recommend because it has a great view. I disagree with the other posters that the rooms are small, as ours was the perfect size. The bed is comfy, the bathroom nice (with great water pressure to boot!). Furthermore, the staff is...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in Aug 2009. It was a wonderful little place right in the middle of everything we wanted to see.

First time in Bangkok and at end of a 3 week Thai trip this was by some way the best hotel we stayed in. Really nice staff who gave us some great advice but knew when to let us get on and do our own thing. Very nice and clean place, wonderfully comfy bed. Nice breakfast too - check out...

I like this hotel. The room is not too big. Just enough for 2 persons but it's clean and cozy. I think it's just newly renovated. The staffs are very helpful. They even advise us to ignore the Tuk Tuk drivers or any stranger who was trying to approach us by giving us wrong information about the Grand Palace and...

We enjoyed our stay at Aurum. Staff is very friendly & helpful. Breakfast included in price (you get to select the night before). Down a quiet street in old city and hotel has view of the river.
