Ariyasomvilla
Ranked #2 of 890 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2014

This hotel and its staff are top notch! The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and beautiful. The staff is the epitome of graciousness. The manager will go out of his way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. This place is truly a lush oasis in Bangkok. The only bad thing about Ariyasomvilla is that it is hard to leave it to explore the city.

This place has set the bar way too high for any other hotel in Thailand. If you are staying in Bangkok, stay here.

I really can't say enough about Ariyasomvilla! What an experience. It had the feel of an old colonial estate with lush grounds, a beautiful pool, stunning dining area. We stayed in adjoining rooms 310 and 311 and despite having stayed at hotels all over the world, this really was one of our absolute favourites of all time. Well, well worth the expense. As with the rest of southeast Asia, the service and staff were over-the-top. You could not do better in Bangkok.

Room Tip: We were a family of 5 and stayed in adjoining 310 & 311. Totally incredible!

The perfect place for a perfect stay in Bangkok. Forget the five star hotels. Go for a 6 star stay in one of the best hotel in the world !
And don't forget to visit the restaurant who's amazing.
Very tasty and veg and fish/sea food only.

This hotel is a great find. Down a side street off the Sukhumvit Road. It really is a charming hotel just where you would not expect to find one - amidst the bustle of this part of Bangkok.
We arrived very early, 5.30 am off a flight from Sweden. The hotel arranged the transport from the airport and they were kind enough to provide us with a temporary room (and breakfast!) while we waited for our suite to be ready.
The hotel is a former private house. In fact the British owner lived here for over 20 years before converting it to a hotel. The owner is exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The food here is almost vegetarian. No meat - but there is fish and seafood. The quality of food is extremely high.
Our room was wonderful - two bedrooms - one for us and one for our daughter - they made up a sofa bed for her. Our 1 year old had a cot in our room. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent too. There is a pool and good wi-fi. The spa is very good too. Our early morning ride back to the aiport meant we missed breakfast on opur last night - but we were provided with sandwiches for the journey! We have previously stayed at The Hilton in Bangkok, but I really cannot imagine staying anywhere other than Ariyasom Villa when we visit again.

We really can't add any more to all the great words in other reviews. This place is really special. It has a great feeling about it from the minute you arrive. It really is an oriental haven behind a walled garden in downtown Bangkok. It has been tastefully created from the parking area/gardens to the bedrooms, the corridors and stairwells. And the restaurant ..........outrageously good !!! We stayed 4 nights. My wife and I are vegetarians and this is the best, consistently the best (meals and staff), restaurant we have ever had. The restaurant also serves fish. We managed 4 breakfast and 4 evening meals and if my wife had her way we would have been back for lunch and afternoon tea. All the staff were superb from the restaurant to the front desk who arranged show tickets (very last minute) along with arranging transportation and airport transfers. The proprietor, David, oozes charisma and the place wouldn't be the same without him. If you want to see hospitality management at its best then stay here. One final comment to make on this superb hotel is that we managed to squeeze all the visits we wanted to do in Bangkok yet my wife is eager to find an excuse to get back just to stay at the Ariyasoma Villa.

What a terrific hotel experience for our first few days in Bangkok and Thailand. This smaller hotel offered true Thai beauty, fabulous and friendly hotel staff and a great location. It was nice to be able to walk around the local neighborhood and experience the real city atmosphere and culture. The setting for the breakfast is most beautiful with a lovely garden next to the pool to enjoy truly terrific food. Our room was also terrific, with first class furnishings. This is the way to get a true taste of Thailand.
