I just spent 7 days over 3 periods within 2 weeks at Ariyasomvilla. First time we arrived we were greeted with the warmest welcome from the staff and from the Managing Director Mr David Lees. They made us feel at home right away and we had no doubt that if we were going back to Bangkok this would be the place to stay. After 2 days we went to Hua Hin, we didn’t like it enough to stay longer and decided to go back to Bangkok. We called the hotel and even though we knew they were fully booked, Mr Lees made sure to accommodate us for that one night before we went to Chiang Mai. The same thing happened again when we decided to go back from Northern Thailand. Once again he made sure we had a roof over our heads and every time we showed up, it felt like coming home. We were always greeted with big smiles and a genuine interest in our well being from all of the employees.
Even though this is a small family owned hotel, it is big in so many ways. The hotel has a lot of charm and heart. It is a beautiful original traditional Thai style villa, built around the original 1942 residence. The rooms ( I stayed in a few ) are all spacious, beautifully decorated with old teak wood furniture and very clean. All rooms have wi-fi access, complimentary water and every day you receive the daily news paper. The breakfast is great with a wonderful selection of pretty much anything, and if you want something off the menu it never seemed to be a problem. The restaurant Na Aroon serves superb vegetarian and seafood dishes for lunch and dinner.
At the hotel you will also find a spacious library with computer access and of course they also have a top professional Spa.
This is absolutely a green oasis in the middle of Bangkok. This is truly a place you can retreat to after a busy day on the streets of Bangkok. To be able to sit in a quiet green tropical garden surrounded by palm trees, a beautiful pool, a wonderful building and friendly staff, knowing that you’re just a stone throw away from Sukhumvit, sky train and all the traffic just takes your breath away.
I will definitely recommend Ariyasomvilla to others. And I have no doubt that I will come back as well
- 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
