My wife and I travelled round SE Asia and it was nice to have a B&B with such a personal touch. Everyone at the establishment worked really hard to make our stay comfortable and were always there if we needed anything. We got some laundry done as we were away for a while and a full laundry bag cost us... More

We loved this family run B&B! Location is in a typical residential road with a variety of small Thai businesses dotted along the street. It is amongst the hustle and bustle of Old Bangkok, expect a significant amount of noise from dogs, traffic and building works however all of this for us added to the authenticity of the location.

I stayed there for two nights. Karan and his receptionist Song made my stay there very memorable. If you stay on the weekend, you may get a chance to meet Karan's charming father, who is an interesting person. They understand hospitality and are more than helpful. It is a bit far away from the centre, but the once daily free... More

Bangkok was my first stop on my SEAsia journey, and Focal Local my first accommodation. It did not disappoint. Handy to the Sky Train so you can get everywhere super-easily, yet away from the hustle and bustle. The room was excellent and the breakfasts sensational. Opt for the Thai breakfasts every time. You're in Thailand – seems silly to ask... More

Although a bit far from the city center, Focal Local is very close to the BTS and the Chao Praya meaning getting around was easy. It was refreshing to get a local experience in a Bangkok neighborhood. We stayed a total of 6 nights on three separate occasions, as it was our jumping off place for excursions elsewhere in Southeast... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few nights during January 2014 (apologies for the delayed review). It's on a fairly quiet narrow side street - but you do get tuk-tuks whizzing past.

a great surprise in Bangkok. We were only there 2 nights. The family owners are very attentive, the decor beautiful, leaving each room with a different theme, all very beautiful and charming. excellent price.
