Arun Residence


36–38 Soi Pratu Nokyung, Maharat Rd.,


Hidden on a small residential street in the Old City, this quaint four-story hotel abuts the Chao Phraya River and has an open lobby with views of Wat Arun, the 19th-century Temple of the Dawn. The four guest rooms combine Asian and European design styles to relaxed yet elegant effect: futon beds and French doors, dark wood floors and white-paneled walls, botanical prints and traditional Thai cushions.

Room to Book: In the only suite, yards of diaphanous curtains frame a wide private terrace lined with pots of palms.
