Ariyasomvilla

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2013

We arrived after an awful series of flights, delayed from the start by a massive snowstorm in Toronto. Stumbling in very late at night we found the staff ready and waiting to make us welcome and comfortable. I came to wonder if they ever really shut the front desk down!
In the middle of this noisy mega-city, Ariyasomvilla brings your blood pressure down immediately and makes you sigh with relief. The rooms were wonderful, dining magnificent, and the location is only a short walk away from restaurants, banking, some shopping, and the elevated transit line. A modern hospital is literally 500 m. away, but never a siren was heard.
David will share the interesting history of the original home and the expansion into a boutique hotel with you. Take the time to listen to it. While you relax, that is.

Room Tip: You might want to stay in a room that is not on the canal side of the hotel. I am not sure, but you...

We stayed at Ariyasomvilla twice during our travelling honeymoon. We were given a fabulous room and thoroughly enjoyed the amazing decor and ambiance of the Hotel. The staff were fabulous, always pleasant and polite. As part of our package we had a thai massage, and what an experience! We felt battered but our muscles were loose and we felt wonderful afterwards. The manager was so friendly and did his very best to make all guests feel welcome. It has a great location, by the sukumvit, only a few mins walk from the skytrain. It was lovely to enjoy the swimming pool before setting off or once coming back from sightseeing. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you can afford the Executive suite, it is truly wonderful.

This is a truly great find ! A converted/extended traditional-style Thai house, right in the City, which offers the comfort of a top class hotel whilst being small and intimate. All staff were friendly and efficient, and the proprietor was usually somewhere around to add his personal touch to things. There's a relaxed outside eating area, and a small pool if you need it. There is also a spa. We had some really good breakfasts and light meals, my only disappointment being that the menu is vegetarian; that said, you know this going in, and they do serve fish and eggs. Because of its location this is not a particularly quiet spot, but noise dies down at night, and an added benefit seems to be that, probably because the place is small and relatively simple, it doesn't seem to attract the boisterous nouveau-riche crowd that you'll find in the glossy high-rise establishments a bit further up the road. Marvellous !

Room Tip: Some rooms are quieter than others, so talk to the hotel when booking if this is an issue for you.

We stayed at this beautiful hotel from 29th Dec through to 10th Jan for our Honeymoon. We have visited Thailand twice before & really liked the look & reviews of this little boutique hotel.

From the moment we arrived we were spoiled. A beautiful room all decorated especially for us honeymooners, petals in the bath water & a huge red rose on the bed. The thoughtful touches were very welcome. The room was comfortable, the bed amazing - we've both never slept so well. Overall an experience second to none.

The food, the pool everything was just perfect & to top it all, just a stones throw from the busy streets of Bangkok. David (the hotel owner) made us very welcome & Poo (his restaurant manager) looked after us so well, we felt like part of the family.

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this fabulous piece of Bangkok heaven to anyone reading, you will not be disappointed.

Watch out David, were already looking to return again for our first anniversary, see you soon, love to Poo & all your wonderful staff.

I usually only take the time to write negative reviews but in this case I must make an exception. My biggest concern is that more people are going to discover this place and then there will never be any rooms available.

I've stayed at every major lux hotel in Bangkok and there is simply no comparison. The setting is amazing and tranquil. So much so you forget that you're walking distance to the hustle and bustle of metro BKK. The staff are insanely nice and accommodating. The owner is a gentleman and enormously hospitable.

I'll never make the mistake of staying at the Four Seasons in BKK again.

My husband and I spent four nights at Ariyasom Villa. I confess on behalf of both of us, that we felt a bit worried about the Soi (street) upon arrival. This was quickly dispelled; neither of us had previously been to Bangkok and so the environment was all new. This place is a jaunty little oasis tucked at the end of a perfectly safe, well lit street, where life is ticking along all around you. You are mere paces from the sky train, convenience stores, coffee houses etc. Above all the accommodation is really lovely. I felt as though all of our needs were met. We are not vegetarians but the veggie breakfast was fab. Dinner was also very good. The staff are helpful, friendly and available to you. The masseurs also deserve a mention. Highly recommend this place.

We stayed here for three nights, in a beautiful room (which was more like a small apartment) right above the pool. David and the staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfasts by the pool in the morning, beautiful comfortable room and is an oasis type setting - as many other people have commented. On our final day, they even gave us a room to relax in before our flight, as we could not have a late checkout in our own room. This place deserves to be number one on TripAdvisor and if you can get a room, you probably won't regret it.

Thanks David & Staff.

Room Tip: We had the executive deluxe right above the pool, with a balcony. Very very nice.

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
