Arun Residence is a restored boutique 6 room hotel reflecting heritage architecture of the area, on the Chao Phraya river with unmatched views of the majestic Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn). As the Sunsets lights illuminate the temple. The atmosphere is laid back, rooftop decking and elegant restaurant capturing views of the temple, media hub page http://goo.gl/DpdDG1

We arrived late at night. We had arranged transfer from the airport to this hotel, through the Arun Residence, for the prearranged price of 1500 baht. This was about three times what, I find out later, the going rate was. We had exchanged dollars for baht in Tokyo on the way. I had given my wife two 500 baht and two 1000 baht and kept the rest. She paid the taxi two 500 & one 1000 and expected change. She wanted some smaller bills, but he just took it and drove off. We were so tired having travelled 32 hours, we just assumed he assumed it was a very generous tip or very stupid tourist.

The hotel was fine. The food was OK but overpriced by Thai standards. The service was always friendly but always slow. We stayed three days and loved Bangkok. When I inquired about a ride back to the airport at the front desk, I was told it would be 700 baht. I mentioned that I was surprised as I had paid 2000 baht to get there. The desk attendant was surprised and insisted it should have been 1500.

The night before we were to check out, I was asked to come down and check out. When I did, I found that 400 baht had been added to the bill. The desk manager said he called the taxi company and that we had only paid the driver 1100 baht. No amount of discussion, nor the fact that the taxi said nothing until this point, would dissuade him, so I just paid it. When I got back to the room and noticed that the receipt had the wrong name and room number on it, I went back to make sure to get an accurate one.

The desk manager immediately took out legitimate room charges that I had made and kept asking me if they were mine. Of course they were, but it took me quite a bit of conversation until I finally got him to give me a receipt with my name and room number accurately depicted. I was wondering if I was being scammed again and wanted an accurate receipt should later on I be wrongly accused of skipping out on the bill. At this point, I was just appalled.

So, let me racap;

500  baht  ($14.86) - Going Rate
700  baht  ($20.80) - Return Rate
1500 baht ($44.57) - Agreed Rate
2000 baht ($59.42) - Initially Paid
2400 baht ($71.31) - Extortion Price

Just deal with somebody else more honorable. $15 cab ride that ends costing you over $70 and you are treated like you are the crook.

Even if you can't stay at Arun Residence, you should go here to Amorosa bar on the third floor for the sun set or to The Deck Restaurant on the first. The hotel, bar, and restaurant are on the banks of the Chao Phraya, and when the sun sets Wat Arun is lit up, and from across the river you can almost see the porcelin (that was used as ballast in Chinese ships) and later used to decorate the stupa. This is a beautiful hotel with a great view from all six rooms, but the most popular room is the Roof Garden Suit, so if you want to stay there, book ahead. This place used to be a ware house and was renovated in 2005 into this simple little hotel and the owners and operators just opened another one called Sala Arun: http://www.salaarun.com/ Hotels like this that mix modern amenities with Thai art and history really impress me.

Stayed there a few nights. Very nicely situated place from which you can visit the old center of bangkok. Rooms are nice and decorated with style, but it was hot and humid if i recall correctly.

Before I visited Arun residence I kept hearing that it had a great view of wat arun. I was wondering what the fuss was about as you can see Wat Arun from a number of locations along the river. But it was definitely a one off experience I had sitting at the bar, watching the sun set with Aat Arun lighting up the skyline. Not only that but you are 4 stories up so you really have a nice perspective. I haven’t even started on the actual rooms! They are beautiful. I think it’s amazing that you can stay in a place like this in such a central location. A standard room is 4000 baht and is two levels. You have to walk up a little staircase to get to your bed. I find this so romantic and intimate. There is beautiful dark wood used throughout the building. If you want to pay more for an amazing view of you know what there is also the suite room with a balcony.

I highly recommend grabbing a drink on the deck to see Wat Arun at sunset. It is absolutely stunning!

Six suites at this boutique-style hotel with an exceptional view of Wat Arun, Temple of the Dawn. The somewhat basic, though comfortable rooms are compensated for by exceptionally friendly and gracious service from the staff. See sepaarate review for the Deck by the River restaurant.
