Focal Local is located on a side street off the main road in a typical Bangkok neighborhood (kind of like you are living like a local). It is nice and comfortable, certainly a great place to come back to after a day and night out in the craziness that is Bangkok. Given its location, it is not perfectly quiet, but... More

We spent our first three nights in Thailand, Bangkok at Focal Local. We were welcomed with a very friendly hello and delicious, refreshing complimentary drinks which we appreciated after our walk from the train station. You can take a tuk tuk (barter to 40baht, they generally ask for 50) but we chose to walk. The room was very comfortable, clean... More

Nested in a local neighbourhood with sufficient amenities, you can see, hear and feel how the locals lead their everyday life. Walking distance to Krung Thon Buri Sky train (or a single free tuk tuk ride), you are very near to the Chao Phraya and not too far from Siam central station. Stayed four nights, had 4 different, delicious and... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights and was just what we were after. Rooms weren't the biggest but had everything you needed for a comfortable stay with their nicely themed rooms. A free daily tuk-tuk to the sky rail made getting into the main areas a breeze and the staff (especially Karan) were extremely friendly and helpful. The custom... More

Just wrapping up our 3 night stay at the Focal Local and an amazing way to end off our Thailand trip. Stayed here with our 2 young kids and Karan and the rest of staff totally accommodated us. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated and don't let the fact that it's slightly away from the city scare you. Thanks!!

Down a side street, in a really typical Bangkok neighbourhood, full of small shops & artisans, this is a gem. Good breakfasts, very helpful desk with excellent English & wifi, clean albeit rather small though smart rooms. We stayed on the ground floor and it was fine. Very good acvice where to go etc..

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 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
