Incredible customer service! Immediately after I made the reservation, I received an email from them asking if I'd like a driver to pick us up from the airport and gave me all the details, which was SO helpful! It was easy to find our driver at the airport and a comfortable ride to the hotel. All the staff is very...

This is a small boutique hotel close to Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. The staff is extremely helpful. Our room was clean and efficient, but the location was really great. The breakfast that is included was wonderful. This resort has airport transportation for a small fee.

We stay at this boutique hotel each time we pass through Bangkok. It is at the quiet end of a short street, right on the river front. The warm welcome and delightful location has made each visit a joy to anticipate. The rooms are well-appointed and the front desk is always helpful with maps, restaurant suggestions, arrangements for tours or...

We stayed here 4 nights and the location has to be the best in Bangkok. Quiet friendly neighbours and walking distance to Grand Palace etc. Also right on the river so easy access to ferries. The hotel is charming with everything you need and wonderful staff. Highly recommend Aurum. 👍😊🙏

Having lived in Bangkok before I wanted to share the city with a friend, but away from the chaos of staying in Sukhumvit and Silom. We were looking for a small, boutique hotel near old Bangkok, and this was a nice place to spend a few nights. Our room was comfortable, small, clean and the bathroom was a good size...

The breakfast was provided in their café overlooking...

While I loved the location and the rooms were clean, the wi-fi in the room (which is essential for planning) did not work and my friend and I had a few miscommunications with the staff. Urban Rustic Thai, the restaurant around the corner was amazing.

Stayed for 1 night, located very close to main temples in Bangkok. Small hotel, room small, not worth paying extra for partial river view room, looks onto apartments across street, down street can see river at end. No restaurant, does serve breakfast across street at coffee shop, breakfast was ok, very few restaurants in area. Paying really for close proximity...

This hotel was great. The staff is very attentive, caring and wonderful. Everything was arranged , our pick up from the airport and dropping us off.
