“What a great boutique hotel”
Reviewed 17 September 2010

This was the last hotel of our stay in Thailand, and the second in Bangkok. Perfect. Interconnecting rooms that were huge, beautifully planned and decorated with gorgeous bathrooms, furnishings and layout. We only stayed in boutique hotels and this was the best. Believe all the other reviews. David and his wife have done a fabulous job in turning this family house into a hotel - beautifully designed both inside as well as the pool area and garden. You cannot believe you are in the heart of Sukhumvit. The staff were friendly and helpful whilst remaining discreet and polite. The food was excellent and you hardly noticed that it was vegetarian. I will be telling all my friends to stay here - forget the rest of the faceless chain hotels. This is where you get personal service and attention.

This is quite simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The ambience is wonderful and the staff are very helpful without being pushy. They happily accommodated my request to extend my stay and the food from the restaurant was superb. It is a short walk to the sky train and market or even more fun to take a motorbike taxi for 10 bt.

Finally, it is very close to Bumrungrad International hospital and the ideal place to recuperate after surgery.

We only had a short stay of two nights but wiished we could have stayed longer. This Hotel is unique for Bangkok and definitely to be highly recommended. The staff are courteous, most helpful and friendly, the hotel itself is beautifully designed maintaining all the charm of an original Bangkok colonial style house which forms the hub around which newer housing has been added entirely in keeping.
The restaurant though vegeterian has a most imaginative and extensive range of delicious dishes which are beautifully presented. The home made desserts are not to be missed! All other amenities including the pool and spa facilities are to a very high standard and there are many thoughtful and charming touches to make the experience special. It is difficult to imagine the hustle and bustle of Bangkok city just up the soi outside, whilst relaxing in this peaceful haven. A true treasure of a find.

I realize this is going to sound like a cliche...Still, I can't think of a better way to describe the Ariyasomvilla than as a home away from home. We stayed four nights in their Executive Suite and never wanted to leave. It had plenty of space for our daughter and for us to work when we needed to. The master bedroom is above the living room and both were spacious and gorgeously decorated and came with all the amenities you need – and then some. Did I mention the two bathrooms? There's also a saltwater lap pool, small spa and a restaurant (serving mostly vegetarian dishes – so, no juicy steaks can be ordered here!). Friendly staff, reasonable prices and intimate in a relaxed kind of way.

Folks, this a truly thought through boutique hotel concept with a very personal touch that worked great for my family and me. Can only imagine how amazing it would be for a couple looking for a romantic getaway in the middle of Bangkok's bustling Sukhumvit area.

David and his staff take care of everything at this boutique hotel in the heart of ex-pat Bangkok. Outside and affordable spa service, excellent food at the restaurant, and great recommendations from the staff. What more can you ask for? We'll never stay anywhere else in Bangkok.

We started our tour of Thailand in Bangkok and found this delightful colonial house converted into a hotel through Trip Advisor. It was the perfect antidote to faceless hotel chains. This boutique hotel is run by an English guy who is a charming and attentive host and the house originally belonged to the grandfather of his wife. The restaurant and rooms are gorgeous, there is a pool and small spa too. My family of 4 all had Thai massages at the same time on a room terrace overlooking the pool - heaven! The hotel is on a river so you can get the river boat easily, which is an experience! It is down a strange little street really tucked away down the bottom so make sure you take a business card to show the tuk tuk driver - they probably won't know it. All the staff were incredibly friendly and couldn't help enough. We came back here for our last night in Thailand too as it is just under an hour from the airport. Would definitely recommend it for the personal touch and the comfort.

I went there with my girlfriend. I had already experience a cheaper hotel and we went there to finish our trip in a more luxury place. What can be said? The hotel is a beautiful colonial villa in the heart of Bangkok. It's magnificent and the rooms meet every possible standard. The pool is fantastic, restaurant is perfect. This is definitely a place to stay in Bangkok if you can afford to.
