36-38 Soi Pratoo Nok Yoong
pier: Tha Tien
In a beautifully restored 80-year-old house on the river, each of the elegantly decorated rooms of this small boutique guesthouse open out to a view of Wat Arun , which is especially stunning to see at night when the temple is lit up.
Inside, each of the five rooms is different, and some of the larger ones have two levels. Try to get the Arun Suite, with its spacious balcony overlooking the river.
The restaurant, with outdoor seating on the river, is also worth a visit whether or not you’re staying here. Rates include a full sit-down breakfast.
If you want to stay on Ko Rattanakosin, there is no better location.
