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.

... I gave the Grand Palace a miss as I plan to visit with Steve when he arrives on the 1st Dec. Shared a taxi back to hotel with Ashley & Joel to Chinatown. Where I tried to get a day room to get my head down for a couple hours, but the hotel was full. So I slept in reception for an hour. Then used the spa facilities to freshen up & supermarket shop before sleeper train oh & not forgetting toilet roll. ...
... I was also dripping with sweat and my water had basically become tea because it's so hot so I got a watermelon-melon smoothie from a street vendor. The best dollar I've ever spent! I'm currently lying on the tile floor of my hotel room trying to cool off. I really wanted a cold shower, but apparently that's not possible here. The first 3 seconds were cold, and then it turned to warm water, which felt like ...
[Grandparents, please skip to the next paragraph...] Low and behold, we arrived in Bangkok on a Saturday to an absolute zoo. The protests were back on in full swing. Tens of thousands of people (apparently over 50,000) descended on Bangkok to stage a mass rally the day we arrived. The morning rally was in front of the government buildings. In the afternoon, the whole mass walked through the city to Lumphini Park where they planned to spend ...
... But what a difference twelve years have made. Gone are the mom-and-pop cafes, replaced by McDonald's and pizza joints. The lovely night market now sells ****** T-shirts with beer logos, Viagra knockoffs, and cheap liquor. And worst of all, instead of travelers from around the world, it was nothing but teens and twentysomethings on what appeared to be spring break. It was really sad. Apparently 10-15 years ago Thailand was an exotic destination; today it's an ...
... shirts. There where no animals running down the isles, in fact the plane was virtually empty. No sooner had we got on board than the plane started to move on its way. This is too good to be true. The plane started to taxi to the runway. After 10 minutes we where still taxiing, then it occurred to me that the reason the ticket was so cheap was because we weren't actually going to fly to Thailand, we where going to taxi all the way there. Fortunately we did eventually find the runway and ...
