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.

... they say foot massage, it also includes back, shoulders, neck and head..this was all good but the lady kind of bruised my back rather than relax it..she didn't speak much English when you say softer...went off to find a spot to eat and b managed to watch the Sharks game. There was a live singer so I was kept entertained. Tiredness kicked in and we returned to our spot. As nice as bens place is, you need a good set of ear plugs..eventually got to bed at 2. 29/3..only woke at ...
... the hotel, but the heavens opened so we opted for a taxi after the sky rail. The rain was unbelievable! There were floods on our route home & it even made the news! We had planned to go to the Sky Bar to watch the sun set over Bangkok but due to the rain and cloud we wouldn't have seen the sunset so decided to give it a miss which is a shame. Headed for an early dinner followed by last minute shopping and a foot massage for Sharon, Simon & On before ...
... of you. " you buy postcard? T-Shirt for husband at home! You need to bring home something." what pressure. My favorite was the boats with their floating kitchens, making everything from iced Thai coffee to woks ready to saute up a piping hot plate of Pad Thai noodles and even grills cooking up fresh ( well, not sure about that part) seafood. I opted for vegetarian spring rolls that she fried up in her gas wok right on her floating boat. Genius. ...
... cock fighting which was really sad to see. We booked our bus to Chiang Mai before we went to the White temple. So once we got back we had a bit of lunch, got our bags from the hotel and then headed back to the bus station for 3pm. The bus left on time and it's really comfortable. It cost about £7 each. It's gone through vast countryside and mountains. About 3/4 of the way through the police pulled the bus over and got on. They checked everyone's ID ...
