The host was very helpful and positive. I had forgotten my jacket and he kept it safe for me to pick up two weeks later. Welcome drink was delicious lemongrass tea. Breakfast was great and different every day, thai and westerner option. Thai option was both times delicious: fried rice with prawns and stuffed omelette with mince meat and vegetables.... More

After a five night stay, I have decided that Focal Local is my new standard for a five star guesthouse. It is simply a delightful place. It has all the features of a guesthouse that truly cares about its guests. It offers comfortable beds, reliable wi-fi, on demand hot water and cleanliness. It is well-situated, close to the river ferry... More

An unexpected oasis in the center of a frantic city! We enjoyed our stay very much. A lovely family run B&B. Very clean and lovely "Thai" atmosphere. Delicious breakfasts. A+ customer service. Appreciated the free yuk-tuk rides to the river boat station. Would definitely recommend Focal Local.

The people running Focal Local were SO wonderful to us. They were very friendly and helpful all the time. They even offer a free tuk tuk ride once a day to the pier where you can catch a boat to the sightseeing areas! The room was clean and attractive and the bed was great (if you like firm mattresses, which... More

We had the pleasure of staying here for five nights. Karan is a wonderful host. The entire experience was lovely. Beginning with a delicious Thai breakfast, then a complementary tuk tuk ride to either the boat pier or the Skytrain station. Karan helped guide us in our sightseeing adventures - providing much useful information. Our room was beautifully done and... More

This is a hidden gem in the center of Bangkok - I have stayed in many hotels in Bangkok but none of them have been as quaint, quiet or comfortable as the Focal Local. Big, clean rooms, nice staff and amazing breakfast. Highly recommended!
