Reviewed 2 September 2011

This hotel exceeded all expectations. It is at the end of a street - a bit of a walk from Phlom Chit Sky station after a hard days shopping so catch a tuk tuk from that station if you can. Phlom Chit is only 2 stops from Siam station so this hotel is very central. I left a day before my friend, and her flight wasn't leaving until 10pm - they let her stay in another room until 6 at night, free of charge. What hotel does that? Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were so helpful and the Manager wanders around chatting to guests, making sure everything is OK. The pool area is lovely, and our room (and the rest of the hotel) is full of character with a beautiful bathroom. Breakfast was scrumptious and, if you want to book into the Spa at the hotel, make sure you do so early as it is very popular. If you cant get in there, there is a great Spa called Hansar a short walk down from the hotel on your right. I really enjoy Bangkok and this will be the place I intend to stay on return trips. Thank you to all the wonderful staff who are so friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a studio room for 6 nights and loved it. It is also a short walk to Bumrungrad hospital ... also thoroughly recommended ... 5 star all the way.... from dental work to surgery.

Ariyasomvilla is not a big international hotel so if you want that sort of experience look elsewhere. Rather than spell it out Google the web site and read all you need to know.

The food was exceptional - freshly cooked Thai cuisine with a broad range on the menu. Every evening we felt happy to come 'home' to the hotel for dinner. The pool and jacuzzi were beautifully landscaped, and our son spent hours swimming and playing, or drinking fresh fruit smoothies by the pool's edge.

The interiors are beautifully designed with lots of colour, comfortable furnishings and personal touches. I guess this is five star service but with a feeling of a family hotel, where the owner introduces himself and is always happy to provide information about how to get around, where to go shopping and what to see.

just came home after spending a week at this beautiful villa and felt compelled to tell everyone about this place and all the wonderfull people who work there. Everything was more than i expected, beautiful rooms, great food, (though im not sold on the vegetarian bacon!) and great location. Also wanted to say a huge thank you to the guys at reception, (sorry i dont know your names), when i checked out of my room at 10am, they asked me what time my flight home was and when i replied at 10pm, they gave me a beautiful little room to use for the rest of the day...for free! how great is that? If ever i go back to Bangkok this is will be my home away from home.

David and the team just never let the standard drop. This place is a haven amidst the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. Great location a short walk to the sky train (no you cant hear it! But you can hear the canal boats, not a problem unless you are listening for them) The restaurant is good, perhaps not quite as good as it was? The Eggs Benedict are a must for breakfast as are the home made preserves and great tea (not liptons thank heavens!). The rooms are large and very well appointed with good quality toiletries etc. Mosi spray complimentary in the room is a nice touch because they can be a pest (although not inside the room). All in all a great place to stay. One slight warning the floors in some of the rooms are highly polished and I sipped on a rug and jarred my back, so do take care.

The Ariyasomvilla is in a fantastic old building with real charm. We were upgraded to a suite at no extra cost and the staff helped us a lot with a problem with our airline. In other respects the service was at times somewhat laid back but charming at the same time! The pool and surrounding area is beautiful - lush vegetation and a pool out of the ordinary. Be aware the menu is vegetarian - and the cocktails not the strongest (they do seem to take the massage/healing stuff seriously - may explain the weak drinks!). Quite hard to find under your own steam and no taxi drivers seemed to have heard of it! Overall a lovely place with kind staff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Ariyasomvilla Boutique Hotel is a very unique property in the centre of Bangkok. The original house was built by the current Owners Grandparents in 1942. Unlike other hotels Ariyasomvilla gives you a real sense of place and time but with all modern facilities you would expect from 5 star hotels. With 24 rooms Ariyasomvilla is very private and feels like a sanctuary. The pool is large enough for lap, while the spa offers excellent massage. ... more   less
