For a location like this, overlooking the river and Wat Arun, I was expecting something quite pricey. In fact I was pleasantly surprised as the costs were quite reasonable and the food quite nice.
There was too some variety with both local and Western dishes.
If you're wanting to stay by the river or walking distance to the Grand Palace this is the place! We had two rooms, Lotus and Chaba, and both were very charming and beautifully decorated with a loft bedroom, which included a lounge area, which was...More
Arun Residence is in a wonderful location....walking distance to Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. Plus, there are many restaurants nearby and little shops/markets. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very rustic and quaint and clean. The bed is up some...More
The area of this hotel is my favored location to be just far enough away from the madding crowds but still near enough to get around Bangkok. Accordingly, most of the places in this area fit my bill and Arun Residence was very good and...More
We booked a suite but when we arrived were upgraded to the Arun Haveli. I'm not sure we could have afforded it otherwise, but it was simply amazing and I highly recommend it for anyone who does have the money to spare. Arun Haveli is...More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

As other responders noted this is not a luxury property. My wife and I stayed in the Arun Suite, with a private balcony overlooking the river, with a great view. If you can get that room I think it would be a great romantic honeymoon spot. I don't know about the other rooms. The hotel is small and the decor has a charming eccentricity and a "funky" ambience. I mean that in a positive way. As others noted it has a great location for walking to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun is across the river. A ferry terminal is nearby to cross the river. Amorosa Bar is a nice spot to have a drink and watch the sunset and the restaurant on site is convient for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Other dining is within walking distance.
