I stopped at the Aurum The River Place for 2 weeks after a medical emergency meant that we could not continue South. Our room was on the 4th floor with a view of the river, The room was cleaned every day, our bed was made for us. Clean towels were provided daily. The breakfast was provided in their café overlooking...

While I loved the location and the rooms were clean, the wi-fi in the room (which is essential for planning) did not work and my friend and I had a few miscommunications with the staff. Urban Rustic Thai, the restaurant around the corner was amazing.

Stayed for 1 night, located very close to main temples in Bangkok. Small hotel, room small, not worth paying extra for partial river view room, looks onto apartments across street, down street can see river at end. No restaurant, does serve breakfast across street at coffee shop, breakfast was ok, very few restaurants in area. Paying really for close proximity...

Since our hotel is located in Rattanakosin Island, the old Bangkok area which there are many restrictions about the height and construction.

This hotel is clean, comfortable and well manicured. Although it is a small hotel it is centrally located by the river. It is very quiet. The pier is just outside to take the boats. The Sleeping Budha, Grand Palace, Flower Market, Night Market ect. is only walking distance away.. We were checking out early before breakfast so they prepared sandwiches...

Although the Aurum is hard to find (be sure to print off the instructions in Thai from the website!) it is worth it. Not the fanciest place I've ever stayed but I like it because: *my room has a view of the river *it's quiet (although this is the off season so....) *the staff is wonderful! They kept a suitcase...

The hotel staff were extremely helpful in telling us how to get to different places. They were accommodating my many other ways. The location is extremely convenient and within walking distance of Bangkok's top attractions. There wasn't a breakfast buffet per se, but a choice of eggs, cereal, bread and different fruits and juices were served every morning.

From the moment we arrived the entire staff was completely helpful. Additionally, it's on the river near the pier for boat transport, centrally located right next to Wat Pho and the Royal Palace, and near a little rooftop bar. Couldnt be better!

Aurum The River Place is a beautiful, charming boutique hotel right on the river In Bangkok. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and they went out of their way to make me feel at home.
