This is a charming characterful little place to stay and the staff are very friendly. We stayed in two rooms during our stay, one on the first floor at the start and another room on the ground floor at the end of our stay, so we got to see 2 of the 3 rooms available here. Both were spacious and... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a quiet neighborhood right in the center of the Old City. Easily accessible is the river, temples and palaces. The style reminds you of the Jim Thompson house and the service is wonderful. This is a little gem at a great price for a bed and breakfast stay in Bangkok. Meals include breakfast AND... More

We'd planned to stay at the Bhuthorn two weeks ago having booked the accommodation a year in advance. Unfortunately our trip coincided with some of the protests occurring in Bangkok lately, and we were unable to get a taxi willing to take us into the area where the Bhuthorn is located. We were genuinely alarmed by this as well as... More

We just got back from our trip to SE Asia where The Bhuthorn was our first stop. Many other reviewers have described the three rooms and the wonderful Thai breakfasts so I'll just say that we agree that this is a great place to stay. If you get a chance, take a morning stroll through the market street that is... More

We stayed in the "Nara" suite, which is the two story room with traditional beds on the floor. Everything about the inn and room was just beautiful, full of teak wood, antiques, and fresh cut orchids and jasmine, but inclusive of modern touches such as flat screen TVs. The staff was unobtrusive but so very polite and welcoming. The rate... More

Felt as if we were back in time 100 years with very tastefully furnished rooms and small charming lobby. The courtyard was a wonderful place to eat our delicious breakfast each morning. The staff were all very polite and accommodating. Two thumbs up!

Our stay at the Bhuthorn was everything we hoped it would be. We wanted somewhere authentic, comfortable, friendly, quiet yet central and Thai and we got all of those things. And more. I have to admit I was a little concerned when I read how hard it was for taxi drivers to find the place but the photos had won... More

Lovely hotel, we were looked after well by the staff, and local advice was good.. Thanks! Location is great for the old town, the kao san road is an easy walk away, and the express river boat cheap and easier to use than road transport at times. Thanks for a lovely stay!

The Bhuthorn is an absolutely lovely historical bed and breakfast. My husband and I chose this place due to it being in a historical building, just a ten minute’s walk from the Grand Palace and 15 minutes from Tha Chang Pier (for the Chao Phraya ferry). It has been lovingly restored with the restrictions one would see imposed in the... More

It was an amazing stay at the The Bhuthorn. The hotel only has three rooms so we enjoyed a lot of privacy here while being pampered by the hotel with excellent service, afternoon tea and coconut ice cream! The hotel is very nicely decorated with antique furniture and when we could smell fresh jasmine scent the minute we walked into... More
