Great location and excellent view to Wat Pho. Close to Temples, Palace, Khao San Road and Pier to Wat Pho or anywhere else. Friendly staff and really helpfull.
It is not cheap but worth it!!! I RECOMMEND IT!

Room Tip: River view really worth it.

Clean, amazing views. Close to temples. Spectacular service. I was even upgraded to a suite my second night. Quiet even though in a busy area. Relatively close to things, but would be better if more restaurants nearby.

This is absolutely the best place to stay in Bangkok.
Friendly staff, comfortable and very nice decorated rooms and the view............stunning!!!
The What Arun, the What Po and the Grand Palace all from your room or the roof top bar!
The express boat at your doorstep and an easy walk to China Town, what do you want more.
We had fantastic food in the 2 next door restaurants.

Room Tip: Riverside rooms are the best for the view and more quiet.

This small hotel (7 rooms only) has a perfect location if you want to explore Grand Palace,
Wat Arun and Wat Pho, and if you want to go "downtown" you take the small ferries from
pier 8. We had a very nice room with a small balcony facing the river and a great view to Wat Arun and looking on the amazing traffic on river Chao Praya. The room had a spacious and
clean bathroom. The hotel has a friendly atmosphere and kind staff. Very good breakfast.
The restaurant is superb.
We are an elderly couple, only thing missing is a lift.

Room Tip: de luxe rooms are on the river side with view not big difference in price

I only had 36 hours in Bangkok and wanted to concentrate on seeing the Grand Palace and surrounding temples. Sala Arun is in a perfect location, just a few minutes walk away. My room with the Wat Pho view was spacious and clean. Bathroom was well-stocked and had a large walk-in shower (hot running water in my room was at most tepid, but this was not an issue for me). Wi-fi throughout. Staff is friendly and considerate and helpful. I requested an airport pickup as my arrival time was very late, and that was also very efficient. Other reviewers say to splurge for a room on the river side, but the waterside deck was totally accessible, and it was a pleasant place to enjoy the free breakfast (the night-time view of the Wat Arun temple IS stunning!). Hotel is also convenient to the river ferries, which made for a cheap and convenient way to venture into downtown, and also to hop across the river to Wat Arun.

Room Tip: If a view is important, book on the river side. Room quality is excellent, considering the price.

This review is on the rooftop bar of this hotel and not the hotel properly.
The Bitter Deck bar on the rooftop is open to any customer. It is a nice & cosy place above the river. Since it is located right in front of the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), it offers one of the best views ever. I would recommend to go a little before sunset and stay there till night comes to have three majestic views of the scene. Absolutely wonderful!
Prices are not outrageous. In fact they are quite reasonable. A local beer will cost you a mere 150B.
