We spent 6 days in Bangkok and chose Ariyasomvilla as our base to explore the city and beyond from.
I won't repeat what countless others have said. Just agree that the rooms are amazing, huge and comfortable. Bathrooms are modern and great. Spa is good.
The pool. THE POOL!! One of our daily highlights was slipping into the cool, saline pool at night after dinner. Washing away the grime, sweat and exhaustion of each day. It was truly a GREAT way to end each day and we really loved it.
All of the staff is amazing. REady to assist in whatever way they can.
My ONLY disappointment, if you can call it that, was the restaurant. This was in NO way the restaurants fault, it's just that I'm not a vegetarian and I don't love seafood and my husband won't touch seafood, so it was just hard for us to find dishes that satisfied. I tried the penang curry that came with tofu. The flavor was great, but it was TOFU. I really tried to LOVE it, but couldn't. I only mention this for the benefit of other meat eaters, as I have read several reviews from meat eaters who have said that they didn't miss the meat at all. That is great, but if you don't eat seafood, i do believe you will miss the meat. HOWEVER, I would NEVER not stay here because of this. There are 1000's of restaurants to choose from in Bangkok if you have to have your meat! That being said, breakfast is great. Coffee is strong and amazing. The desserts are to DIE FOR, made by David the owner daily. (Try the plum tart, divine)
David (the owner) is awesome! Always available,always smiling, always ready to assist in whatever way possible. One morning he walked around with freshly baked muffins and gave them to anyone who wanted one. I fell in love with his coffee cups and other assorted pottery/ceramics. He told where I could possibly find it in Bangkok, and after unsucessfully looking, printed out all of the information for his supplier up in ChangMai.
Overall, Ariyasomvilla has earned it's number one ranking. A fabulous place and we would reccommend it to anyone looking for a boutique experience in a frantic, hectic city!!!

- Ariyasomvilla Boutique Hotel is a very unique property in the centre of Bangkok. The original house was built by the current Owners Grandparents in 1942. Unlike other hotels Ariyasomvilla gives you a real sense of place and time but with all modern facilities you would expect from 5 star hotels. With 24 rooms Ariyasomvilla is very private and feels like a sanctuary. The pool is large enough for lap, while the spa offers excellent massage. ... more less
