Stayed at Aurum when we first arrived in Thailand and again at the end of our trip pre departure. Lonely Planet reccommended and rightly so. This cute little hotel on the river banks is the perfect location for exploring the Grand Palace and Wat Po (short walk) and a short taxi ride to other sights in Bangkok. The staff were...

Nice hotel with great designed rooms and a beautiful city view. An easy walk to all the attractions of Bangkok and not too far from all the shops and restaurants either. Nice hotel with friendly staff.

We loved this hotel. It was perfect for our group of two families. We had two river front rooms (401 and 301 for the two couples) and a side room for the three teenagers to share (403). We were very happy with the rooms and facilities. If you are looking at the photos of the front of the hotel, 401...

Recently stayed in Aurum The River Place with husband, and 5 and 3 yr old and can't recommend it more highly.

The service was excellent - my...

Really nice hotel in a super-convenient location between river and grand palace. A safe distance from Khao San Road ;-) but still very close to a lot of sights and walking distance from Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Chinatown. Service was outstanding, very obliging and flexible, and super helpful. The rooms themselves were very nicely designed. We got the river...

River view room beautifully appointed with great views. Everything you could want in way of mini bar, bathroom toiletries, etc. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful - wished we had...

This is a lovely little hotel right by the riverside, where you can enjoy the view of the Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn) from your breakfast table. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and nice, there was no traffic noise around. You couldn´t find a better location, close to everything you would like to...
