Helpful staff, great view and great breakfast.
Due to location was very noisy during the night and early morning
The bedroom was comfortable, with a great view across the river. The deck dining room had the same view, with excellent food. The staff were very friendly and willing.
The dim lighting in the bedroom, lack of water in the shower, and constant, mediocre and loud music in the dining area. Surprised the staff had so little English.
The hotel is excellently positioned such that will allow you to visit by foot in only one day the most important and famous tourist attractions from Bangkok, and if you will get a room with view at Wat Arun, the experience will be better! The rooms look great with nice furniture and great bathroom! The staff is very friendly. On departure day we had arranged airport transfer at 6 am and they inform us that will not be able to open the breakfast buffet at that hour, but they prepared sandwiches and drinks on package for us from previous night. They offered us two free drinks on their rooftop bar which has excellent evening view to the Wat Pho and Wat Arun and the river
Door room and the lock are old and difficult to close, also not soundproof. Also the entire hotel is not soundproofed and in the night you can hear noisy boats from the river, noise from the bar, slamming doors, screams and noise from neighbors. You will feel a damp/musty smell, probably from excessive humidity in the atmosphere
Excellent location, excellent and helpful personnel, amazing terrasse restaurant and roof bar! Very nice room! Great views, proximity to all main sites in city center.
Difficult to find, I suggest to give hotel number to the taxi driver. Rooms are not soundproof - you can hear everything from inside other rooms. Smells on the street outside the hotel are sometimes not attractive at all.
the location obviously...nice view from the bedroom of the wat arun though obscured by a tree but spectacular view from the bar
lots of little things were bad...soap dispensers cheap and didnt work..staff at breakfast spoke no english..taxi offered by hotel 4x price that a normal taxi should cost..free drink at the bar should be a free drink not a cheap fruit juice...rooftop bar drinks extremely expensive especially when the rooms are already expensive....hotel is not worth 5 or even 4 stars and is overpriced.
Great Staff . Great Location All Good in truth .
No negative comments
Was only there for a day and a half but because of the great location was able to see and everything I wanted with the help of a good taxi driver.
Couldn't help me with booking sights but had a great taxi driver who helped me see everything I wanted.
great location for sightseeing and stunning view, friendly and helpful staff, limited but very good breakfast
facilities a bit old and need some minor maintenance (door locks hard to open/close, soap dispensers broken, bathrooms not top standard, no wardrobe in room but coat rack in bath where items can get wet); minor inconveniences that don't disturb what was overall a great stay at the hotel
The huge bed, the clean rooms, the staff were very helpful despite their limited English and went above and beyond their call of duty. Get a river side took definitely.
Nothing. Everything was amazing.
I just made my wish came true, back to the old town having : A spectacular view of wat arun through my window from SalaArun at sunrise and sunset. : strolling around the unchanged image of the neighborhood also an aquatic lifestyle absolutely unchanged for century. : *selected boutique hotel . image of the old house perfectly transformed into a charming & relaxing atmosphere.
It would had be excellent to see original images of the house with its stories how it was in the old days ! also mentioned the name of owner as it's a part of historic area.
Restaurant and rooftop bar were excellent. The quality of food and the location on the Chao Phraya river overlooking Wat Arun were superb.
The absence of 24 hour reception cover. No lifts.
Great location, spectacular views and very welcoming staff
Friendly, comfortable and well run hotel which gives you easy access to the river boats and near by temples. Perfect for a short break.
The lack of a lift is not a problem as the staff are very happy to help you with your luggage.
Great views across the river.location of restaurant. Friendly staff
Views from balcony obstructed.
obviously the view.the friendly staff and location to the main sites and chinatown restaurants and khao san road. the quaint guest house feeling of the hotel
i did not dislike anything. having been to bangkok before we knew what to expect and chose this specific hotel
Lovely hotel in great location. Helpful staff and warm welcome. Fantastic view of Wat Arun from our room. Food was good
Had a few problems with the toilet blocking in our room, staff tried to sort but not ideal
Good view, nice staff
Very close to all the important tourist venues,walking distance.Hosts very helpful to research any queries of restaurants,shows,shopping etc.politeness in abundance.
Nothing to complaint above.
The location was perfect for exploring. Right outside the door we entered a maze of wonderful, congested alleyways. The Chao Phraya River was immediately in front of the hotel with the express boat pier a block away. Many temples were in the blocks behind the hotel and the flower market was a short walk away.
Pros Booking and Check-in: Reservations made through www.booking.com. Check-in was expedient upon arrival, luggage storage available if you arrive prior to the scheduled 2pm check-in. Staff members were pleasant, polite and helpful throughout our stay. Location: Hotel was well situated along the river just 3-4 minutes walk from the entrance to Wat Po. It was a nice experience watching life on the river during our stay. The Bitter Deck ground floor restaurant and the Eagle Nest rooftop bar provided additional opportunity to enjoy the outstanding views of the river as well as Wat Arun on the opposite bank of the Chao Phraya. We also found nice dining opportunities in the area of Sala Arun. Favourites included ESS Deck and the Inn a Day restaurant. Room: Well decorated, tastefully furnished room, with nice space, a private terrace with river views, spacious bathroom with modern fixtures and toiletries. Bed was large and comfortable, providing very good rest. Room included TV with satellite - offering plenty of English channels, stocked fridge, coffee and tea station replenished daily, a small safe and wifi that worked well. Importantly, the A/C also worked well, providing instant relief after coming in from a day of sightseeing in the punishing heat of the city. Breakfast: Room stay came with morning breakfast out on the Bitter Deck tables. We tried the western option one morning and found this to be okay. Other mornings we had the Pad Thai (note this comes with fresh prawn unless otherwise specified) which was very good. Breakfast was served with coffee/tea and there were fresh fruits and fruit juice as well. Eagle Nest Rooftop Bar: Atop the Sala Arun hotel is the very nice, 360 degree rooftop bar, which we found to be a great venue to watch the sun go down in Bangkok. Night views of Wat Arun from the Eagle Nest were superb.
Cons: Location: While well located, it takes a bit of effort to find Sala Arun the first time. It is located at the end of a side street branching off Maharat Street, just look for the multi-story, reddish-orange coloured building. That is Sala Arun. There is a map of the hotel you can download from the Sala Arun website that is helpful if you need a taxi from the airport. Safe: The room safe was large enough for passports, important paperwork and small cameras but too small for laptops and larger camera equipment. No Lift: There is no lift in the Sala Arun building. While this won't be an issue for many people, it will be for those with mobility concerns. You do have to walk up stairs to get to your room and the rooftop bar.
- excellent location - comfortable bed - good breakfast - fab views of river and Wat Arun
- quite dated decor - rooftop bar a bit too basic
Fantastic view especially at night from deck, Quite place down an small road that initially looks to be a narrow unappealing alley, but is actually fine. Good location for a short stay visiting temples (Arun, and wat po) good for river taxi. Staff smiley and those who spoke English well were really useful.
Breakfast is nice but they cook it at their sister hotel so although it doesn't take long, it arrives slightly less hot. Otherwise great for a few days in BKK. Area not very touristy which some may find a bad thing, but we liked. Can always find a tuktuk to take you somewhere but also did not get hassled.
I would recommend getting a transfer from the airport to the hotel as it's a little bit hidden out of the way. However, once there, it is a complete surprise B&B, and totally charming place to stay. While there are no lifts, the staff are more than happy to move your bags. The atmosphere is very relaxing, and the staff more attentive than most 5 star hotels we visit. I would recommend this spot for anyone visiting the local site seeing spots. For shopping in the night markets, MBK, or China Town you would expect to pay anywhere from 80 Baht to 300 Baht depending on time of day. Mostly we paid 150 Baht for taxis.
The location for us was a little out of the way for the shopping holiday we had planned. But not really a big issue given the level of transport available.
the place, the friendly staff
I dont even want to review because I want to be able to book here easily next time! The room is beautiful. The view this stunning. The staff, very friendly and helpful. The brand new waiter from Myanmar at the restaraunt is also very sweet. It is so easy to get around from here. Leaving my first hotel and coming here saved my trip.
I can't think of anything I didn't like...except maybe the lack of an elevator. But...the staff delivered my very heavy bag to my third floor room so all I had to carry was me. :)
