In the bustling and modern city of Bangkok, Ariyasom offers a slightly quirky, and very comfortable haven from which to explore.
The 24 rooms and suites are spread across two buildings. The original villa was built in the 1940s and the site opened as a hotel in 2008, aiming to maintain the classic style whilst providing modern facilities. All of the rooms are different, but each boasts Thai silk drapes, antique furniture and local artwork.
Ariyasom is located in downtown Bangkok, right beside one of the city's many canals. It is within easy reach of some of Bangkok's most interesting sites, including the Grand Palace, Wat Arun and the Jim Thompson House.
The hotel's restaurant, Na Aroon, focuses on healthy but delicious organic cuisine, with both Thai and Western options. It is predominantly vegetarian, but occasionally offers a few seafood and fish dishes.
For some time off from site-seeing, Ariyasom's spa has an open-sided sala for expert Thai massages, and there are also three private treatment rooms for oil massages, as well as a steam room. There is also a nice pool in the hotel gardens.
When to visit
If you stay in a Studio Room, request the new building, as the ones in the old building are above the restaurant and can be a little noisy
Ariyasom Villa is situated in downtown Bangkok, just 13 km from The Grand Palace.
