We arrived very early for check in after traveling for 24 hours. The staff did a great job of trying to make us comfortable until our room was ready, including readying the room first so we could rest. The room was perfect with a beautiful bathroom and gorgeous view! The staff is incredibly helpful! The location is perfect, right across...

Around corner is Wat Po massage school for your daily Thai massage! Lots of trendy hotels and restaurants by river front and they are...

The location of this hotel is just great. Wat Pho literally just outside of the alley leading to the hotel, and walking distance to the Grand Palace, the Flower Market and the pier to Wat Arun. I strongly recommend taking the room overlooking the river and Wat Arun, the view of the sun setting at Wat Arun is just magical!...

We spent three nights in this cute little hotel. The narrow street leading to thr hotel doesn't look like much, but the hotel is great. Our room was overlooking the river, offering great view of the wat Arun and the river. Please note that staying at a river side hotel means great view, but also hearing the noisy boats touring...

I had a beautiful stay at Sala Arun. The Staff where amazing, a little bit of respect goes a long way, it is the way to see Bangkok. Thank you for Everything. The food was fantastic, most of the attractions are in walking distance. Homework of customs is a must. I miss Thailand already

Overall, this hotel is very nice. Our room was spacious, clean and had a great view overlooking the river. After checking in, we explored the neighborhood. When we returned to our room it had the distinct smell of sewage. The smell lingered the entire night and into the morning. We didn't make a big deal about it since we were...

It was a nice first impression. even though it's not a five star hotel but for its service it had done very well.

This is the second time we stayed in sala arun. Im sorry to say but the high service and friendly staff has gone. The rooms are mouldy and needs to be renovated. It s far to expensive for what you get.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
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.

“The rooms w/ the best view of the river also look down on the deck restaurant. So although you have a great view, it's not very private.”
