We stay at this boutique hotel each time we pass through Bangkok. It is at the quiet end of a short street, right on the river front. The warm welcome and delightful location has made each visit a joy to anticipate. The rooms are well-appointed and the front desk is always helpful with maps, restaurant suggestions, arrangements for tours or...

We stayed here 4 nights and the location has to be the best in Bangkok. Quiet friendly neighbours and walking distance to Grand Palace etc. Also right on the river so easy access to ferries. The hotel is charming with everything you need and wonderful staff. Highly recommend Aurum. 👍😊🙏

Having lived in Bangkok before I wanted to share the city with a friend, but away from the chaos of staying in Sukhumvit and Silom. We were looking for a small, boutique hotel near old Bangkok, and this was a nice place to spend a few nights. Our room was comfortable, small, clean and the bathroom was a good size...

Our room was on the 4th floor with a view of the river, The room was cleaned every day, our bed was made for us. Clean towels were provided daily. The breakfast was provided in their café overlooking...

While I loved the location and the rooms were clean, the wi-fi in the room (which is essential for planning) did not work and my friend and I had a few miscommunications with the staff. Urban Rustic Thai, the restaurant around the corner was amazing.

Stayed for 1 night, located very close to main temples in Bangkok. Small hotel, room small, not worth paying extra for partial river view room, looks onto apartments across street, down street can see river at end. No restaurant, does serve breakfast across street at coffee shop, breakfast was ok, very few restaurants in area. Paying really for close proximity...

Since our hotel is located in Rattanakosin Island, the old Bangkok area which there are many restrictions about the height and construction. This area is one of the oldest part of Bangkok which the former community, called "Tha Tien", has already been existed for at...

This hotel is clean, comfortable and well manicured. Although it is a small hotel it is centrally located by the river. It is very quiet. The pier is just outside to take the boats. The Sleeping Budha, Grand Palace, Flower Market, Night Market ect. is only walking distance away.. We were checking out early before breakfast so they prepared sandwiches...

Although the Aurum is hard to find (be sure to print off the instructions in Thai from the website!) it is worth it. Not the fanciest place I've ever stayed but I like it because: *my room has a view of the river *it's quiet (although this is the off season so....) *the staff is wonderful! They kept a suitcase...
