My wife and I are currently staying here for four nights. We are loving it! It reminds of of a touch of Paris except with wonderful service. -Room 301, great views of the river. Very nice room. Excellent housekeeping. -Front desk manager and assistant speak very good English and have been able to help us with all kinds of recommendations...

good hotel, clean, bed is good. Some rooms have view on the river, which I found lovely (some noise from boat in the morning, but ok for me and anyway Bangkok is not a quiet city). Staff is lovely and helpful. Breakfast is simple but very good. Excellent ratio price / quality. Very good location if you want to go...

My sister and I have stayed here for our New Year celebrations. We made an urgent booking with Khun Jin. We have a good room which is big enough for 3 of us. We have a good river view. We also have an empty space on the roof top to see the firework. Few mins walk to Wat Pho. The...

Stayed one night (pending arrival of friend and move to Chakrabongse Villas which is essentially just immediately south of Aurum) which was enjoyable. Building is nice and well maintained. room was sufficiently spacious with nice bathrooms. Two balconies, but both very small- not enough for a chair, but you could just about stand on one. Shame that views of much...

Great: I had to stay here during my intensive course at a university nearby.. location is quite convenient with a 5 min traveling from Mahachulalongkorn University. The room is neatly clean. Improvement: With tiny little room and no view, I paid a very high price with very limited breakfast choice. Worst area to improve is the reception during morning shift...

I stayed at Aurum recently (May 2015) and I was very pleased. I travel a lot for work and leisure and I think this is one of the nicest boutique hotels I have ever stayed in. The room was very comfortable, the room and entire hotel was spotlessly clean, staff are very friendly, breakfast was great (taken by the river)...

Its a horrible experience. The hotel is can not be 4 stars, I will be happy if it is 2 or 2,5 stars only. Hotel is in a small alley where the road is repaired, it's dirty and you have to go by another alley. The facilities is quite old. The TV seem to be from 90s technology. I booked...

I stayed here with my wife for 2 nights (3rd and 4th April). The rooms are cozy and beutifully decorated. The staff is very helpful. We were upgraded to River facing room which has excellent view of river and the cafe. Watching the sunset from Cafe Viva was quite an experience. The food was also very tasty. Overall it was...

I was expected a really nice room with a nice view for this price. I paid 4300 Baht which is about $135 US dollars for a river room view on 3rd floor for one night. I stayed all over Thailand in places for $60 or 2,000 baht per night and all were beautiful excellent rooms. But this one was not...

Great location! The alley to get to the hotel looks a bit dodgy, but the location was amazing. The hotel is in walking distance to the Royal Palace, Wat Pho, and the docks for public transport that connect all Bangkok, this way you don´t have to worry as much to fall prey to a taxi or tuk tuk scam which...
