Charming small hotel with river views
Sala Arun is a lovely hotel. 5 of the 7 rooms have a direct view of the river and Wat Arun, which is lit up at night. Idyllic by day, and romantic by night. We can't think of a better way to soak up the atmosphere of Bangkok than to watch the boats drift by from the terrace over a coffee.
Sala Arun is beautifully decorated. Think pastel colours, wooden shutters, rustic furnishings, and individually styled rooms. There is no gym, pool or spa, but there is a lovely terrace cafe/restaurant/bar. You could sit all day and just let the entertainment drift past you. The rooms themselves are well appointed with air-con, big bathrooms and flat screen TVs. We rate this as a great place to relax. You are close to the Grand Place and Wat Po. There is river boat pier within walking distance. Bit of a pain to get to the big shopping areas and crowded streets, but if you have booked to stay here then that probably isn't on the top of your agenda anyhow.
There are two room types: Deluxe rooms (35sqm) and the Sala Suite (85sqm). Four of the Deluxe Rooms have river views, the other two face Wat Po. If can get the Sala Suite (200 USD up and in demand) you will have booked yourself one of the best rooms in the city.
