“Recommended for quiet but ideal location.”

Good: Nice location for visiting the main attractions of Bangkok (Temples, Royal Palace, ...), it is located next to the river in a quiet area. Every inch of the rooms are exploited to make it practical (in a good way!) and they're really comfy. Staff is helpful and friendly (even offered a room to take a shower in the evening of the check-out day after leaving our luggage there). Bad: Expensive breakfast / restaurant but with a great sight

“Excellent”

Good: A super comfy bed and good aircon system that doesn't blow right at you when you sleep. Could see a pick of the temple across the river. Bad: Our window faced the construction site, which started to get noisy on Sunday at around 9 am!

“Loved the hotel and location outstanding.”

Good: Lovely hotel located across on the river. Super friendly and helpful stuff. Cute room that was modern and functional. Located in interesting neighbourhood with cool shops and cafes and right amongst the “temple district” of Bangkok. Only 10 mins in tuc tuc to other sites. Bad: Pool was not located on site, it was located at a sister hotel about 10 mins away. This was disappointing. Could manage expectation better on website

ワットアルンが見えるジャグジーつきのお部屋に泊まりました。 あらかじめジャグジーとアヒルさん、花びらを湯船に用意してくださっていました。 なによりも嬉しかったのが、誕生日当日にチェックアウト予定だったのですが、前日ホテルに帰宅すると誕生日ケーキがお部屋に置いてありました!(連れのサプライズではありません) 心遣いがとても嬉しかったです。 ありがとうございました!

“The killing view with extra comfy bed!”

We stayed in a premium Jacuzzi suite and the view of the temple of dawn is very stunning! Spectacular! The room is equipped with more than you can ask. The room decided into 4 parts: Outdoor balcony with a Jacuzzi, a living room, a huge bathroom, and a bedroom. Firstly, the staff will come in to set a jacuzzi tub for you with hot water, rose petals, and a fleet or bath ducks, lol very cute. We enjoyed the view from the tub so much. The living area is very well designed. It's cozy and makes you don't want to leave the room and order food to eat inside. The bathroom has two little rooms inside: Toilet and shower box which you can close this area with a nice sliding mirror door. They give you full amenities. The bed and the pillows are super comfy that i asked to buy my pillow home but the hotel could not sell me. Do not forget to try the hotel rooftop restaurant called Above. Its signature dish is Duck green curry confit. Very tasty and the price is very reasonable. Do note that you need to book prior because the restaurant is very popular but seats are very limited. I highly recommend Riva Arun. It's a whole new experience of affordable luxury with a wonderful scenery. We're very impressed and the room is worth our single penny. I wish i could show you more than 6 pictures. I took more than 50 pictures of the room amd the area around. Street food is every where and cheap. The souvenirs are in reasonable price. it's very nice to.have a walk in a neighborhood area too

“Excellent”

The room was beautiful and clean and had a great view of the river. The location is real close to some of the larger temples and close to Khaosang Road without being right in the heart of it all. It’s kind of out of the way if you want to see the rest of the city though

“Perfekter Ausgangspunkt zum Sightseeing”

Good: Eine Toplage zu den wichtigsten Sehenswuerdigkeiten! In ein paar Minuten ist man am Koenigspalast, Wat Pho und Wat Arun. Zu anderen Zielen ruft das Hotel sehr gerne innerhalb weniger Minuten ein Taxi. Auch das Expressboot ist sehr nah. Das Zimmer war ausreichend gross, sehr ruhig, gemuetliche Betten und sehr sauber. Gutes Fruehstueck mit tollem Ausblick und leckeres In-Room-Dining. Das Personal ist sehr zuvorkommend und spricht gut Englisch. Bad: Wir hatten nichts zu bemaengeln und fuehlten uns sehr gut aufgehoben!

“Great Views and Service!”

I was looking for a place where I would get excellent night time views of Wat Arun and had read many positive reviews of the Riva Arun Bangkok Hotel Bar Restaurant on Tripadvisor. When I went there, I was not disappointed. I was welcomed very warmly by Nui to the rooftop bar and the views from the top were amazing! Nui ensured that my stay at the hotel rooftop bar was pleasant and comfortable and I was able to take many good night time photos of Wat Arun from there. I would like to thank Nui and the rest of the staff for such wonderful customer service and hospitality and totally recommend this hotel for their service and views!

“Excelente localização para quem vai ficar pouco tempo”

Se vc for ficar poucos dias este hotel é ideal pois vc está próximo de todos os templos. A entrada do Wat Pho é de 50 bht. O Grand Palace é de 500 e Wat Arun tb 50. Fomos à noite a Khaodan Road. O tuck tuck que nos levou cobrou 100 bht . O da volta queria cobrar 150 oferecemos o mesmo preço e ele aceitou. O hotel tem um bom restaurante e com vista para os templos. Na Khoson Road fiz uma massagem para os pés(150 bht). Ao lado do hotel tem um local para massagem, não tive tempo de fazer, mas falei com um casal que gostou muito, meia hora (260). O aeroporto, quando vc chega, é um pouco complicado para se tomar um táxi, mas nada que vc não supere. O táxi me cobrou um preço fechado de 500 bht , mas na volta do hotel pelo taxímetro saiu um pouco mais barato. Lleve o endereço do hotel no alfabeto deles Não se esqueça de levar o número do telefone, os taxistas não falam uma palavra de inglês. Se eu não tivesse levado o número do telefone estava roubada, ainda mais que este hotel é novo. Os preços são meio malucos, não tem lógica. Vc pode almoçar por 200 bht, tomar um café por 60 a 90 bht. Comprar uma água por 14 bht. Mas pode pagar 160 bht por um pedaço de fruta. Para vc atravessar o rio custa 4.bht

“ワットアルンの朝焼けから、ライトアップまで、ぜいたくな景色が楽しめました”

Good: 景色です。ワットアルンが大きく見えます。 Bad: 特に思い当たりません。 Location Tip: ワットポーまで徒歩数分の好立地です。 もうすぐ地下鉄ができるそうで、そうなると街中へのアクセスも抜群になるでしょう。 部屋は清潔で、ルーフトップのレストランの食事もドリンクも素敵です。 ホテルスタッフはいつも明るく親切で、いい宿でした。 ワットポーまで徒歩数分なので、夜のライトアップ(南側から無料で入れます)も気ままに楽しめます。 部屋の大きな窓の前には川とワットアルンが大きく見えています。 夜は部屋から、そのライトアップを見ながらお酒を飲むのもいいですね。 バンコクの中心地の喧騒と違い、のんびりとした旧市街の中で過ごす滞在は素晴らしい物でした。

The room was good, although it was a tiny bit too small for our two suitcases. The besteht feature oft this Hotel however is their staff.

“Excellent value for your money and within walking distance to the most important attractions”

Good: The view from the terrace restaurant is extraordinary. Breakfast is excellent. The room is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. The location is superb --- within walking distance to the main temples you have to visit in the city. Bad: It's not the fault of the hotel, but breakfast starts at 6:30 AM and most tours pick you up earlier, so we missed breakfast on most days. Too far from the metro, and transportation in the city is a chaos, so sometimes it takes a lot of time to reach by car places that are too far to go on foot. To mitigate, the port is very close and you can reach several places conveniently by express boat. There is a pool, but apparently located in a far away hotel. In practice, too awkward to use

“おもてなし精神に感動”

空港からリモバスでカオサンまで移動した後に船でターティアンへ。(チャオプラヤエクスプレスの船着き場は現在工事中?対岸になっているため渡し舟にのりました)その後約5分程歩きホテルに到着しました。道に看板がでてるのでわかりやすかったです。日中のためか危険さは全くありません。欧米人がよく歩いています。スイートではないジャグジー付きの4階の部屋を予約。(サララタナコーシンと比較して)ベランダ、ジャグジーからワットアルンがよく見え、感動しました。ライトアップもよく見えました。ただ部屋の中からはソファに座ると端しかみえません。ジャグジー付きスイートは他に2室両側にあり、ワットアルンだけ見えるジャグジーの部屋はホテルに1室のみです。川に面するベランダ面積は他の2室より広いです。ベランダからの眺めが素晴らしいのですが、真ん中の梁がじゃまでジャグジーに入ると見える位置が決まっています。ほかの口コミにも1階あがっただけのレストランは高いとあったのでルームサービスで夕食をとりました。パッタイ145バーツ、野菜春巻き145バーツに17.7%の税金が入ります。多分夕方なら付近のレストランでも危険はないです。 従業員のホスピタリティーはすごくいいです。海外のホテルにしては珍しく到着時にまず1階のラウンジに座らせていただいてチェックイン。その間にお茶のサービス。笑顔でお部屋に案内。チェックアウト後は手書きのメッセージカードを頂きました。ジャグジー付きの部屋にするか迷いましたが、結果とてもよかったです。余裕がある方はぜひ非日常を楽しめるこの部屋をお勧めします。2,016年にできたということできれいです。プールは姉妹ホテルを使用できるようでした。 すごくいいホテルですが、このお値段なら朝食込みでもいいんじゃなかなと思いました。

“Hospedagem confortável e charmosa numa localização perfeita!”

Good: A gentileza de todo o staff chama muito a atenção. Recebemos carta de boas vindas e carta de despedida, super simpáticas e carinhosas. O hotel, apesar de pequeno, é todo arrumadinho e aconchegante, exatamente como me atraiu nas fotos pelo Booking.com. A vista é sensacional: Wat Arun e Wat Pho. Do meu quarto dava pra ouvir os sinos do Wat Arun de madrugada, quando abria a porta da varanda. O restaurante, localizado na cobertura, é muito gostoso, e tem a vista do rio Chao Phraya, do Wat Arun e do Wat Pho - o por do sol visto de lá é deslumbrante! A localização do hotel também é fantástica, dá pra ir a pé a várias das principais atrações de Bangkok! Passei cinco noites lá, e gostaria de ter passado várias mais. A relação custo-benefício é fantástica! Bad: O quarto é bem apertadinho, mas isso acaba dando mais charme pra tudo! Não foi um problema

Absolutely love the view from Grand Deluxe River on 3rd Floor, spacious with small balcony but overall extremely comfortable. Can be pricey but keep checking for last-minute deals/offer. So close to Wat Pho and The Grand Palace is still within walking distance well on a cool and not so hot day of course. Once at the hotel, be sure to visit this famous Vietnamese Restaurant "Tonkin Annan", it's the best Vietnamese cuisine I've tasted ever in Bangkok!

일단 호텔 위치가, 왓포가 맞은 편에 있어 올드타운 여행에 너무나 편리합니다. 생긴지 얼마 안되어 깔끔한 부티크 호텔이고, 주변에 로컬 맛집도 많아요. 객실은 화이트톤의 우아한 느낌이고, 리버뷰 객실을 고르면 전망도 예술입니다 .건너편에 왓 아룬이 아주 잘 보여요. 단, 수영장은 근처의 리바 수르야 호텔과 공유하니 수영장이 중요하다면 다소 불편할 수 있음

We contacted the property and they changed our reservation to the next day without charge. Very nice room with view of the river and Wat Arun across. Friendly staff went out their way to make us comfortable; we even ate dinner on the roof top of the property with views of the temples.

We had the river-facing jacuzzi room which was very large and airy, if quite expensive. The balcony had a wonderful view of the river and our bedroom window overlooked the National Palace. Sitting in the jacuzzi at night having a glass of wine and watching Wat Arun light up was pretty special. Unfortunately the food at the rooftop restaurant on our visit was awful - dry, bland, uninspiring and over-priced. At night there are limited other options in the area to eat at

“Perfect location, perfect hotel”

For the independent traveler who wants to experience a more personal level of hospitality than can be offered by the large multinationals, this boutique hotel is perfect. Riva Arun is located in the Old Quarter steps away from Wat Pho, ~0.5 miles from the Royal Palace and sits adjacent to the river providing stunning views of Wat Arun. The regular rooms are compact but contain all the required amenities and are impeccably serviced. There is a rooftop bar/restaurant that allows unparalleled views across the city and provides exceptional meals that can be savored amidst the exceptional surroundings. All this infrastructure is supported by an exceptionally attentive and professional staff who provide a level of service that distinguishes Riva Arun as my preferred destination in Bangkok

“Rooms are small but great little gem!”

My initial reaction to our Twin Superior Room, was holy smoke, this is tiny! We promptly upgraded to a somewhat larger room that gave a tad more room to move around with lots of luggage. The rooms themselves were very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. No problems sleeping. The hotel overlooks the river, Chao Phraya, and is almost directly across from Wat Arun. It's also within walking distance to Wat Pho, The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. It's also about a 15 minute walk to Khao San Rd. The staff was extremely friendly. The food from the rooftop restaurant was impressive, not to mention the views are spectacular! Bonus: There was a school of massage right around the corner from the hotel!

“Bangkok Old City”

As someone who prefers to stay in small, independent hotels rather than the predictability of the international brands, Riva Arun ticks all the boxes. Location: In the heart of the historic region, overlooking the Chao Phraya river, minutes from historic Wat Pho and The Grand Palace. Hospitality: Exceptional, from arrival to departure staff went out of their way to help. Rooms: Well maintained with all the needed amenities, the rooms vary in size but even the smallest provide the necessary amenities in a well organized space. Restaurant: The food is excellent and the roof top location provides views of Wat Arun and the city enabling a memorable start and end to the day

The receptionist had to go and physically check the room before checkout could be completed - no other hotel we stayed at did this Prices in the restaurant are a little high - especially wine - but then you are paying a premium for what must be some of the best views in town

“Nice little hotel, well located”

This hotel is in a great location - within walking distance of two of the most important attractions and a short ferry ride to Wat Arun, - and all three of these are visible from the rooftop restaurant, which serves excellent food (albeit a bit expensive) and offers fabulous views of these attractions at night. The hotel is new (completed within the last year), clean and very well designed in a minimalist kind of way. Rooms are comfortable and furniture is built in and integrated into the design. In that regard, it would have been nice to have a bit more closet and clothes storage space. The bathroom was great with plenty of hot water. And - a huge plus - our room had a great view of Wat Arun and the river, so we could see it lit up at night and watch the boats on the river. Internet was OK. The only significant downside was the air-conditioning, which was noisy even at slow speed and required me to use earplugs at night; it also seemed to somehow either make the room a bit too cold or too hot and was hard to keep just right. Staff were great and incredibly helpful. That said, I have no reservations about recommending it and would stay there again

“Exceptional”

Good: Bardzo fajny hotel, rewelacyjnie położony, śniadanie z widokiem na rzękę pozostanie długo w mojej pamięci. Czysto, przemiła obsługa, najlepszy hotel w jakim byłam podczas pobytu w Tajlandii. Bad: Jak rzadko brak

“stunning view and excellent meal”

A new hotel and stunning rooftop restaurant opposite Wat Riva Arun and close to Wat Pho and the Royal Palace. Food is excellent and the atmosphere very cozy and friendly. The Dinner Menu was diversified and of high quality

“Excellent hospitality in a great hotel with amazing personnel”

Riva Arun had excellent hospitality during our stay in Bangkok. We want to award this with all our compliments: 9.8 (because a 10 will be impossible perhaps). Especially many thanks to Edward and Toby and the manager, the lady, whose car we could use to go to the other hotel Shangri-La

“Jewel of Bangkok ~ simply outstanding”

Excellent staff, great hotel, outstanding services! My family and I visited BKK for the weekend and had a great time at Riva Arun. The hotel is very clean, has modern interior decor and incredibly delicious food. Rooms are compact but the jacuzzi suite offers grand views of the Wat Arun and the river. It is easily the best view in Bangkok! Above all I loved Riva Arun because of the staff. Super friendly, extremely courteous and helpful the staff here is always ready to make you comfortable. Special recommendation and thanks to Edward and Lookked. They went out of their way to help us get around the city even when half the city had shut down. Despite rains and no conveyance, they walked long stretches with our bags and everything...got us a cab and stayed in touch with us all day till we reached the hotel safely at night. Indeed they made us feel at home. I made great friends in them and they are family to me now. I would love to stay at Riva Arun with them again!

“Boutique Hotel in a great location with fantastic temple views”

We booked through Bookings.com for a deluxe room for THB4000, but then contacted Riva Arun to upgrade to a Premium Jacuzzi Suite (Room 410) for an extra THB 3400 per night, so pretty expensive, but well worthwhile, as this was a special trip for us. The suite was more like a petite apartment, best bed I've ever slept in, huge bathroom, separate sitting room with TV (plus another TV in the bedroom), large deck with views of the River and a Jacuzzi, which the staff filled for us with flowers and candles twice during our stay. This was a welcome addition after long days sightseeing, it was heaven to soak in the Jacuzzi and watch the sun set over Wat Arun. The pictures of the suite on the website are the same as real life, so no photoshop here! Breakfast is on the roof, so great way to start the morning overlooking the river with views of the temples. Breakfast is around THB350 per person (plus tax and service), which is buffet style, pastries, cereals, yogurts and hot breakfast with eggs, sausages, bacon etc. If I had to give one negative it would be the food is overpriced. Dinner you're looking at £30.00 - £40.00 per head for 3 courses with wine/drinks, so my advice would be to venture out and eat at some of the restaurants which are in walking distance of the hotel, on the way to Wat Arun temple. Staff at Riva Arun are fabulous, very accommodating and will bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy your stay. The total for our 4 night stay was £900 including food (4 breakfast, 3 light dinners, 1 lunch), however it's a great hotel and I would stay here again because of the added luxurious suites. I think if they could make the food prices competitive, more guests would eat in the hotel as the food is good. I

“Romantisches Dinner über Bangkok”

Das Restaurant ist im 5.Stock des Hotels Riva Arun. Wir wurden bereits an der Hotel-Rezeption freundlich begrüßt. Und gleich zum Fahrstuhl gebracht. Am Eingang des Restaurants auf der Dachterrasse wurden wir schon mit einem Lächeln erwartet. Man hat uns an einen der schön eingedeckten Tische geleitet. Die Aussicht ist super, denn man kann viele beleuchtete Sehenswürdigkeiten sehen. Es waren kaum Gäste da, somit war es sehr gemütlich und romantisch. Im Hintergrund lief schöne und entspannte Musik. Das Servicepersonal war sehr bemüht und freundlich. Wir haben als Aperitif einen Cocktail und danach ein Glas Wein (rot&weiß) getrunken. Als Hauptspeise hatten wir Pasta und ein Fleischgericht. Es war gut und lecker. Zum Nachtisch gab es einen Schokoladenkuchen...der war sehr gut. Wir hatten einen sehr romantischen entspannten ruhigen Abend mit Blick über Bangkok. :-) Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen!

“ワットアルンの夜景を堪能!(We really enjoyed our staying with Wat Arun in the night !)”

Good: ワットアルンとワットポーが見られる部屋に滞在しましたが、夜景はとてもきれいでした。また、屋上のレストランでの食事もおいしかったです。 I stayed the room where we could see Wat Arun and Wat Poh. In the night, we enjoyed these two temple lighted up. Also dinner at roof top of this hotel was very nice. Bad: 特にありませんでした。 Nothing

“Wish to come back!”

Good: A perfect spot to see temples and the palace. People at the hotel were very kind and helpful. My local contacts (professors at a local university) said that I was staying at a very good hotel in an excellent location-- even they were impressed too. One reads and hears lots of very weird stories about Bangkok. I did not experience any of that, but then again I go to sleep around 8 PM, no night life for me-- just interested in academic things and world heritage sites. I got a haircut nearby, just like being in London, Paris, or Barcelona. I felt safe and un-hassled. I met many people from around the world visiting temples, but few Americans. More Americans should come here for a truly international experience on par with the great cities of the world. :>) Asian food does not agree with me, so I was happy the restaurant had Western food to keep me healthy. Bad: A great location once you get there. Traffic in Bangkok is terrible, what a mess. The Angus steak in the restaurant was a bit leathery. But I do not expect a great steak in Asia and do not go for the food. :>)

This small hotel wins for it fabulour river views, convenient position and utterly charming staff always willing to help you. The area is wonderfully ramshackle while the hotel is clean and smart. An ideal choice for a Bangkok stopover

“An amazing stay in central Bangkok”

Good: The staff, facilities and overall hotel experience was above my expectations. It is perfectly located for visisting bagkok, a walk away from the main attractions. All the details were ready for an unforgettable stay. Bad: The restaurant on the roof top has a great view and an appealing menu: however some of the courses were overcooked. But this remark comes from my husband who is a chef, and a little fussy on the details

“Cute hotel excellent service”

From when our taxi pulled up to the hotel the staff immediately came to our assistance. We were so impressed with how efficient the check-in process was and the kindness of the staff. You can just feel it. Ann in particular was extremely helpful from check-in to checkout. She greeted us with such a warm smile and helped us with anything we needed. The streets were blocked due to an event for their king so we had to walk to the main street to get the taxi the hotel reserved for us. Ann walked us all the way, helped us with our luggage, and made the situation so comforting and easy. We don't even remember the last time we've experienced such great customer service in America. We are truly happy with our stay and would definitely visit again in the future. Btw the rooms are so comfy and clean with great views of the temples

“Beautiful place for lunch with a view”

Stumbled across this little gem after spotting it from a river boat and had lunch there. The Pad Thai and Chicken Kra Pow were both delicious. Very friendly staff and a spectacular view of the river, the Bangkok skyline and the temples nearby made this a fantastic spot to refresh before tackling the heat again
