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.

I'll be honest - our first impression upon arrival at Sala Rattanakosin was underwhelming. It is down an alley in old-town Bangkok and it seemed a little bit small and run-down from the outside. I should know better than to judge a book by its cover! This hotel ended up being our most-favourite stay of our two weeks in Thailand. The location can't be beat - we were minutes away from the Grand Palace, lots of temples, fantastic restaurants, and easy access to the city via Taxi or Tuk Tuk. The staff were incredible - so friendly, eager to help, and happy to make great recommendations for a market to visit or a place to eat. The breakfast (included) was beyond belief; the restaurant patio is over the Chao Phraya river and across from Wat Arun. The view is beyond belief and the breakfast is heavenly - incredibly delicious and beautifully presented. We loved starting our mornings on the patio, relaxing in the sunshine, feeling the breeze, enjoying the view, and eating the fabulous meal.

The room, while small, was exactly what we needed - courtesy fridge, fantastic shower, comfortable bed. It was a great place to relax after a long (and hot) day in Bangkok. The air condition was powerful - great to cool off at the end of the day!

We enjoyed the rooftop bar on our last night - and while the drinks are expensive, the view makes it worth it.

Sala Rattanakosin is a little piece of heaven in Bangkok - we couldn't have loved it more and are so glad we chose to stay here!
