“Short-changed in the Amorosa bar”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

I didn't stay at the Arun Residence, but I was disappointed to be deliberately short-changed in their rooftop bar. They knew what they were doing there ... new tourists, big note, I tried to raise this with the management on the way out, but they did not seem to understand the issue, On the upside, the view is good in the late afternoon.

This is a very nice and small hotel with only 5 rooms. We found the location to be very very nice away from Sukumvit, where many tourist normally stay. It is next to Wat Pho and Grand Palace. You are only 1 min away from local street traders. The hotel is located at the riverside with Wat Arun on the other side of the river. You can see Wat Arun from the room, restaurant and bar. The restaurant is very nice, however you need to book in advance to be sure to get a table.
I will definitely stay there next time, no doubt about that.

This is a small boutique hotel on Chao Phraya river, in the old part of Bangkok, very close to the main Bangkok temples. The hotel is near the river boat stop Tha Tien N8.
There are very few restaurants nearby and they are all closed in the evening, but you can easily find a taxi 24/24 h.
Friendly staff, very good service, cosy atmosphere.

We were cerebrating our anniversary in the Arun Suite last weekend. First the location offers perfectly fantastic view of the Temple of Dawn across the other side of the Chao Praya river. You can obserb lives on the river while watching the sunset. (parking is very challenge as you need to park at Wat Po, which is another side of the road)

The room is very boutique and very authentical wooden decorated atmosphere. The bed is very comfortable, the bedwears make us feel like home. The bathroom is nice, hot/cold shower is good. We didnt try the restaurant because we arranged a private dinner at our terrace. There's many choice of dishes both Thai and western. I would recommend for a couple to enjoy your stay but do not expect a luxury service.

Service staff need to be trained for some common operations. (like serving breakfast in room with proper procedure and service manner) We didnt complain that they forgot to bring us the salt&pepper/ketchup (which is very common for breakfast) until our meal got cold but before the service staff leave us to enjoy our meal, she/he should say "would you like anyting else?" as we were kind of wondering if she/he would have come back to serve us the missing items.

Overall, if you like to be private in an upper standard decoration/atmospher, this is perfect for you.

We stayed at the Arun Residence for four nights in January 2011. The Arun Suite was so gorgeous that we are still talking about it. The suite has a private deck and we sat out most evenings watching the sun set behind Wat Arun...heavenly. The staff was great to deal with, the breakfast was very good (have the tuna sandwich) and the restaurant has a great selection for dinner. We loved the location and getting around was easy with the water taxi/bus stop just a few blocks away. We prearranged for airport to hotel transport and they we waiting for us upon arrival. We would love to stay here again should our travels take us back to Bangkok!

Room Tip: We highly recommend the Arun Suite. It should be noted there are lots of stairs to navigate whicheve...
