Aurum The River Place
Ranked #275 of 890 Hotels in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 January 2017

This hotel is clean, comfortable and well manicured. Although it is a small hotel it is centrally located by the river. It is very quiet. The pier is just outside to take the boats. The Sleeping Budha, Grand Palace, Flower Market, Night Market ect. is only walking distance away.. We were checking out early before breakfast so they prepared sandwiches for us to take away. They booked the taxis with no hassle. We shall not hesitate to stay in this hotel again if we visit Bangkok

Stayed: December 2016

Although the Aurum is hard to find (be sure to print off the instructions in Thai from the website!) it is worth it. Not the fanciest place I've ever stayed but I like it because:

*my room has a view of the river
*it's quiet (although this is the off season so....)
*the staff is wonderful! They kept a suitcase for me for two weeks until I returned from Bhutan.
*since my flight home is midnight, they arranged for a late checkout (for a fee) and a taxi to pick me up right at the door
*they know the area so can provide directions to a pharmacy, restaurants, etc.
*breakfast is delicious at the outdoor garden of the coffee shop next door
*close to a pier so you can take a boat up and down the river--fun!

Of course, modern bathroom, flat screen TV, and good wifi in the rooms as well as the lobby.

The hotel staff were extremely helpful in telling us how to get to different places. They were accommodating my many other ways. The location is extremely convenient and within walking distance of Bangkok's top attractions. There wasn't a breakfast buffet per se, but a choice of eggs, cereal, bread and different fruits and juices were served every morning.

From the moment we arrived the entire staff was completely helpful. Additionally, it's on the river near the pier for boat transport, centrally located right next to Wat Pho and the Royal Palace, and near a little rooftop bar. Couldnt be better!

Room Tip: The front desk was able to find us a driver to Ayuttaya for the day, recommend restaurants, and assi...

Aurum The River Place is a beautiful, charming boutique hotel right on the river In Bangkok. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and they went out of their way to make me feel at home. Your room key card is kept at the front desk when you go out of the hotel, so no worries about losing your key. Breakfast on the patio of the coffee shop is included, and the food was delicious. The rooms are spacious, the bed is extremely comfortable, and opening the closet to find robes and slippers was a welcome surprise after a half day of travel. The hotel is convenient to shopping, great Thai food - LOVE the Pad Thai at Rub Ar Roon (spelling?) down the street- and sightseeing (Wat Po, Grand Palace, the pier where you can get a river shuttle or take a longboat tour of the river which I recommend).

Room Tip: Highly recommend a room with a river view.
