The breakfast by the water is excellent --We recommend the Thai breakfast. When we complimented them on the quality of the soup -they brought another bowl. You are close to the Grand Palace, Wat Phro (book...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 perfect nights in February 2012 and found it to be an outstanding location for a few short days of sightseeing in the historic city. Getting There and Away: The car service, (1100 baht) booked through and payable on arrival at the hotel, was a godsend after 30 hours of travel to Bangkok....

This hotel is within walking distance of several major temples in Bangkok -- you will see the line of tourist buses when you walk there -- and ferry stop (#8). The roof terrace has a 360 degree view of old Bangkok with Wat Arun just across the river. The breakfast on the river bank is a very pleasant way to...

Returned to the Aurum with my college-age son for 10 days in Bangkok. I can't imagine staying any place else due to location, price and excellent serice. My room was ready at 2:00 in the morning, they arranged my bus connection to visit Hell Fire Pass 3 hours from Bangkok, opened up their private pier for a long boat tour...

Just finished a 2 day stay at Aurum The River Place Hotel at the end of a 3 week trip to Thailand. What a perfect hotel for us, very close to all the major attractions, most of all the river, right out the door. The staff were very helpful with transit solutions, restaurant suggestions.

If you are looking for a small, reasonably priced hotel in Bangkok, this is the place. The Aurum is located in the old city, very close to many of the most important sites you'll want to see. The rooms are very clean, attractive, nicely furnished, and if you're lucky enough to get one with a river view you'll be very...

Aurum the River Place is a wonderful small hotel in middle of Bangkok. My family (husband and grown daughters) stayed in two rooms at the beginning of August. The staff really goes the extra mile to make sure their guests have everything they need. Breakfast is served to your preferences out by the river each morning and the rooms are...

This is a beautiful small hotel that goes the extra mile in terms of making our stay a memorable one. OK the views are not all the same but rooms are very clean, very comfortable and have extra touches such as lavender scented toiletries including body lotion. The hotel is well located for river trips and for seeing the Grand...
