Rooms are quite small and dark, needs modernized. Breakfast was small, but most things there. location was a bit out of town but transport was there if needed (Tuk Tuk). WiFi kept dropping in and out, and speed was slow. This would be a nice hotel with a few upgrades, and maybe for couples.

We enjoyed our four-night stay in a comfortable room with helpful staff. The shuttle to the night markets was also handy as was a tuk tuk outside when we went to other restaurants. The food was tasty at the hotel restaurant and we would come back for dessert there even when we went out. The breakfast cook remembered our orders...

We stayed in the "White Elephant Suite" in Sept. 2015 and loved what it offered --- the best and largest accommodation with a large balcony in the back of the property. You do pay a little more but you get much more luxury, privacy, space and best of all "River View". The hotel location is just a little bit out...

I stayed at this Boutique hotel 2x's before...it's on the Ping River, which makes breakfast a relaxed time to start the day. The Staff is and was, wonderful, polite, and professional.

We stayed for 5 nights. The hotel is lovely - Thai style with a beautiful lobby. Breakfast by the river was nice and the staff was very welcoming and helpful - especially the men with the whistles who help you back up the car into traffic! But there are two problems - the mosque and the hard beds. The hotel...

The Aruntara Riverside appears to be quite a new boutique hotel. Everything is fresh and ship-shape. Architectually, the hotel is quite beautiful. There is a large reception area, an open courtyard leading to a large lawn and then the serene Ping River. Breakfast can be taken beside the river, although there is also an air-conditioned room for the less romantic/more...

We have just enjoyed 4 nights at this fabulous hotel. The rooms are a decent size, well fitted out and the beds very comfortable.

This hotel was the most service oriented I have ever stayed at. The bent over backwards to do anything one wished. The food was very good and there were plenty of choices.
