Historical Traveler Reviews Arnoma Hotel Bangkok
Must be best location in B'KOK
I stayed here in Apr 05 for 4 nts the location of the hotel is excellent, only 3-5 mins walk to several large shopping malls including the very upmarket GAYSORN with shops that include Louis Vuitton,PRADA, Armani,Burberry etc.
The rooms are a little dated but very clean, bathrooms could do with a makeover,but don't let this put you off staying here.
The Breakfast area can get quite busy,there is quite a good choice of food to choose from though. The breakfast reastaurant serves nice thai food in the evening(buffet style) there is also a chinese and an Italian restaurant both serve decent food.The bar on the ground floor is a nice place to have a cold beer after a day of sightseeing/shopping/meetings.It's also nice to sit in the lobby area in the evening listening to a guy play the piano.
I enjoyed my stay at the Arnoma so much that i have booked to stay there again in April 06
What more can you ask for?
Had pretty poor expectations for the Arnoma Hotel, a mid price medium class hotel. However, my wife and i were very happy with the quality of accomodation and the service was superb!
On arrival we were upgraded to an executive room foc and afterwards nothing was too much trouble for the staff including booking cabs, making dinner reservations, picking up laundry etc.
The location is excellent, next to all the main shopping plazas through which you can walk to the Skytrain which is a 5min walk away. Cabs are plentiful and the doormen are only too happy to hail them for you also giving you a card with the hotel address in Thai.
The decor in the rooms may be a bit dated (my wife says that brown and beiges are back in fashion!) but the rooms are spotless and the views from the 20th floors are fantastic.
All in all a great place to stay. Don't be put off by the low price this is a great central hotel for sightseeing and shopping in BKK.
A central affordable bangkok hotel
This hotel is located in a great location, across from the World Trade center and is surrounded by shopping malls-such as Gaysorn. The staff is really nice and helpful. The lobby is quite grand with a piano player at night. The rooms are so so. The carpet in the hallways need to be replaced. It looks like the rooms had some type of renovation (generic hotel look) and were comfortable, but the bathrooms really need to be updated. They look straight out of the late 70's or early 80's.
One complaint, if you don't arrive early for the breakfast buffet you may not get a table. It fills up quickly and on the weekends- i don't think they have the staff or tables to accomodate the guests.
Great central location
A beautiful, luxurious hotel with an excellent restaurant and gym/pool terrace.
On site dining delicious, and local shopping mall arrrox 100 m to right or directly across stree providing ample eating and shopping opportunites on a more restricted budget.
Bedrooms tastefully decorated and as it was our wedding anniversary during the trip, we had a free upgrade and chocolates & fruit in our room, how lovely!
Bangkok, a mad and wonderful experience, which will have to be repeated in order to see and do everythng. Traffic totally hectic, but a new highway due to open soon after our visit may improve matters. To this end schedule tourist trips for early morning, to beat traffic and most of the heat.
Don't miss the Grand Palace... Truly spectacular!
Can't really go wrong
I spent one night here in February. It's an all around decent hotel - good location, clean rooms, all the standard amenities in the hotel. Your really can't go wrong with the Arnoma. Also - there's a fantastic italian restaurant on the 2nd or 3rd floor that you should try!
Location, location, location!
An excellent location for exploring Bangkok...lots of shopping around hotel...great malls and street vendors. Excellent full breakfast. Easy access to skytrain. The only exception was the musty smell in the room....bought a can of air freshener and resolved the problem. Hotel is in the middle of everything. If ever we return to Bangkok, it would be back at the Arnoma.
I have stayed here twice and really liked it. It was around $60 - $65 dollars and included breakfast. Very close to all the shopping and the staff is very freindly. Breakfast was included with the room, full breakfast not continential. Would highly recommend this hotel.
I have visited this hotel regularly over the past 14 years. Formerly it was a Swissotel. Very well located opposite the World Trade Center shopping mall and next to many major hotels and the skytrain. Friendly staff and nice outdoor swimmingpool on the 4th floor.
The rooms need to be refurbished soon as this has not been done for the past years. Can recommend this hotel.

... another so it was nice to start connecting some dots in a city that is so vast and sprawling that it has my internal navigation going haywire on a daily basis. Afterwards we headed back to the flat to relax for a couple of hours and to watch part of a film. Then we headed on out again down to the Sportsman to grab some food with some of the guys from work and to watch the rugby (I have to be honest, I didn't watch a lot of rugby, but I really ...
... one of the guys, Doug. Again, it was very much like being in the group of the elderly people in Turkey. I could have a conversation with them individually, but when you are in a group of them then its really difficult. The topics ranged from drugs they had done in college, types of drugs, getting "happy ending" massages, previous boyfriends and girlfriends, and what they would do in bed and what they draw the line at. Maybe this is what normal college students discuss. ...
... centre comprised of 7 floors and each floor was a labyrinth of shops strategically broken up by escalators and stages where models were practising a fashion show, people were being interviewed or people dressed up as characters were entertaining children. This was going to take a while. We had 1 goal: I needed a new bikini. My old new one was too big.
After initially insisting on a strategy, Edd gave up and we wondered around until we ...
... could only be described as a collection of tied sticks, our bus arrived and we hopped on. The journey was about 20 minutes in a rickety old bus with a fan in the ceiling, the floors were made of wood and the space on board was utilized to accommodate more standing passengers than seated ones, I guess people take up less space that way. To say we got off the bus would not be an accurate description of our disembarkation; it would be far more accurate to say he was kind enough ...
