We booked this hotel, partly based on the triop advisor reviews we had read, and also as we were keen to avoid featureless corporate towers that often masceade as 5* hotels. Prior to going we checked trip advisor again and were a little concerned soem of the reviews about poor service.
On arrival our fears were quickly set aside - Ariyasomvilla was a beautiful hotl, a little oasis in busy sukhumvit. Rooms were charming, with gorgeous bathrooms, comfortable bed and spotlessly clean. The staff were all very help, quiet & polite and we had no problems with being understood. The food in the restaurant was delicious, especially given the variety available at both breakfast and dinner. The owner was friendly and helpful, stopping to chat to guests and make sure all was well.
The location is away from the old town and big sites, but you are only a 5-10 min walk to sukhumvit road, with bustling market stalls, shops & restaurants and sky train station. Alternatively, we caought the local ferry along the klong and were at the Grand palace in 20 mins.
We would definitely recommend this hotel - one of the most charecterful and charming we have stayed in & definitely better than any chain hotel.
- 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
