Reviewed 25 September 2017

The hotel is steam punk/industrial style situated at the end of a small alley opposite the reclining Buddha temple complex. Our room had wonderful uninterrupted views of Wat Arun, as does the rooftop bar. The rooms are very comfortable with wall to ceiling windows. The food and drink are around the same prices that you'd pay in Australia but there are some cheaper cafes nearby. The staff here are excellent and will arrange airport transportation etc. There isn't an elevator so be ready for the spiral staircases.

Room Tip: Pay extra for rooms with views of Wat Arun

Dear Signature formulafrog G, thank you for choosing to spend your time in Bangkok with us at sala rattanakosin and for taking the time to share your review. We are really pleased you enjoyed our location, style, our rooftop cocktail bar and our multi-award winning eatery & bar restaurant. Also thank you for reminding your fellow reviewers that we do not have a lift (elevator) being we are a listed building; our spiral staircase is a real feature though and a popular Instagram shot. Thank you again and all the best, the sala management.

This resort is really difficult to get to right now, thanks to multiple road closures and re -directs because of the kings upcoming funeral. But if you can get there, do!

We only had one night in this little gem... but it was great. We stayed in a River View room... and the view was amazing... everything it was touted to be. The staff was accommodating, kind, and helpful. The extra touches, such as the pandan leaf juice as part of turndown, was charming.

The restaurant wasn't as good as we hoped... service was terrible, we had to ask for menus, drinks, and flag someone down every time we wanted to order. By dessert, we had given up and
had to chase someone down for a check. Not only that, but in the very early morning, as we were checking out, I was sitting on a barstool by the bar "table", and a huge fat rat ran from under the table into the kitchen. Its Bangkok, and on the water, so it's not like I haven't seen rats everywhere...but it was the first in a seemingly upscale restaurant part of a lovey boutique hotel. So seriously, don't bother with the restaurant. But I feel like that's another review... seperate from the actual hotel.

The hotel is great, in a great location (near to everything the Old City had and on the river...but hidden down a dark alley), and truly charming

Dear Shannan, thank you for your review of your one night with us at sala rattanakosin and for sharing your review. We are so pleased you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and your room's amazing view. It is regrettable to say the least that your restaurant experience was so poor as we usually receive such high praise as one can see from our Trip advisor restaurant page. It is great to read that you loved our turndown amenities which change on a daily basis. We hope to welcome you back upon your return to Bangkok. All the best the sala management.

Very nice and clean the rooms, the staff is very pleasant and gave us tips on taxi's and tours. The breakfast was great with plenty of options to select. This hotel is short walking distance to the temples and especially The Grand Palace and The Flower Market. I would definitely recommend.

Nice location, std. rooms small and no place to put you closes. Clean and staff very friendly, but not all are competent and speak not tell english. Very convenient location for visiting the old town and china town.
Excellent view to the Wat Aurun across the river. We enjoyed staying there.
