Reviewed 3 August 2012

We've been back from Bangkok for several weeks now but haven't stopped talking about this hotel! To find such a peaceful, friendly and beautiful place in the middle of a bustling city was more than we could have hoped for. The room was beautiful, the staff went out of their way to help us and we enjoyed the pool and the food. We would definitely go back there.

Wow, this place was amazing and every one of our expectations were exceeded. We went for the package, and the deluxe room was beautiful and it was a lovely surprise to have scented candles lit in the bathroom each day. We enjoyed a dip in the pool each evening, and it was fun even in the rain, much to the amusement of the staff. We also tried the hotel massage which was great, in the open air pavillion over-looking the pool. The meals we had in the hotel were also great, we loved the fruit, and pancakes at breakfast. Make sure you also try the Massaman curry and try the desserts, which are home made by David. All staff were really accommodating, greeting you by name and with smiles. The hotel is close to the BTS and to the ferry (behind hotel), which makes it perfect to explore Bangkok. We will definitely return here and recommend it to any of our friends travelling to Bangkok. David was wonderful and charming and was very helpful in recommending day trips and travel routes.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be great, just depends on your preference.

My wife and I decided to stay here for our honeymoon. So far, it has been a great decision.

Because of some delays with the airport driver, (not the hotel's fault), they upgraded us to an executive suite. This was something that they really did not have to do. We had arranged a deluxe room and we would have been happy to stay in it. However, we were very pleased to have been moved to such a huge, well laid-out room (two living rooms, with an upstairs bedroom).

Though it was originally book for 6, our arranged massage had to be pushed back to 6:30. The staff arranged these change easily and without problems. Even better, our dinner at Na Aroon afterwards was absolutely delicious. Everything on the plate was prepared perfectly: turnip cake (sounds nowhere near as good as it tasted), seafood curry--outstanding, massaman curry (great). All in all we both had a very pleasant, relaxing stay.

The people here have been all smiles, going out of there way to help us at all times. For those hoping to learn more about the hotel, please send me a message. We've really enjoyed our stay here and we have no complaints about the hotel.

This is a lovely hotel. It really is an oasis in the middle of a crowded, hot, congested city. It's so quiet and relaxing. We had a nice room (we were upgraded from the studio level rooms to the next level up- I can't remember what those are called) and it was really lovely and spacious. The grounds are gorgeous, the pool is totally relaxing, and the meals and service at the hotel were great. A perfect place to stay when you arrive in Thailand.

Ayiyasomvilla is an oasis in the middle of Bangkok. It is tastefully decorated and renovated, keeping the flavor of the bygone colonial era while providing the high levels of modern comfort. The bathroom is huge and comfort and is the best part of the room. The dining room (breakfast room) is the most beautiful room, and the breakfast was very nice. Close to the Skytrain station and very convenient. Highly recommended.

Just stayed one night, but felt home immediatly. The place is spotless clean and the staff very friendly. The most I enjoyed the small touches, Soap with colored rice, incent burners, turn down service, fruit platters, Bathroom with natural stone decorations etc...
You can feel that the owners are behind their business. The only downside is the location, a bit far from BTS or MRT...

Our family of 4 loved Ariyasomvilla! We popped in and out of this beautiful boutique hotel over the 4 weeks of our SE Asian odyssey and always felt like we were coming home. David was usually there chatting to his guests and overseeing his staff, who were delightful and always willing to accommodate. Our room was very well equipped to sleep the 4 of us, with a sofa bed and a fold out provided for our 2 kids in what felt like a separate bedroom (though it was actually the sitting room). Room 211 was our favourite as it looked over the pool and had a gorgeous balcony. The room was very spacious, too.
The traditional Thai fit out was obviously well designed and thought out and very much in keeping with the history of the house. We felt very peaceful when we were there. We ate 2 diners and thought it was exceptional quality and value and what we had hoped for from clean, crisp, spicy Thai food. Breakfast was amazing, though the kids didn't manage with the vegetarian bacon and sausage, but the abundance of fruit and those banana pancakes certainly made up for it!!
Location was great. An easy exit from the motor way, especially if coming directly from the airport. 20-30 minutes if traffic is good and only about 300bht. To get to the skytrain you have to walk the length of Soi 1 and around the corner so probably a 10minute walk, but what an interesting one with street food vendors, a sidewalk tailor, international hospital with nurses and doctors everywhere and hustle and bustle which made me feel very safe and alive. We ate lunch at the outdoor food stall market, which is about 1/2 way down Soi 1, twice. Best Pad Thai made in front of you, yummy chicken rice, noodles and so much more. To feed four of us it cost no more that $6 and it was delicious and clean.
We indulged in a some of the Thai massages at the hotel and they were spot on. Probably the best of our trip, and we tried quite a few. Very reasonably priced, too.
Don't even second guess staying here. If you can get in then grab it. We will be back! Thank you so much for having us.

Room Tip: Room 211 was perfect.

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
