Focal Local B+B is even better than the TripAdvisor reviews. Karan and his staff are wonderful and go to all lengths to make your stay a great experience.

Focal Local is better than all the great reviews indicate. It's a lovely and comfortable place with extremely strong A/C (much needed in June), but what you've read so far about the staff doesn't really do them justice. Karan and the rest of the staff go so far above and beyond to make sure their guests have everything they need,... More

It is my first time to stay at BnB. Although reading through all reviews on TA made my expectation pretty high, Focal Local did not disappoint me and it even exceeded my expectation and set a pretty high standard! Firstly they reply really fast! I told Karan that my mom has diabetes and hoped they could provide some food that... More

I loveeee Focal Local! The new building offers spacious and beautiful rooms and the same incredible hospitality. Like before, I felt like at home! It's pretty accessible to malls and popular attractions by BTS or ferry, which I love because we can better understand a city using its public transportation system. And Focal Local gives a free tuktuk ride to... More

Stayed here three nights in March, (two oldies and two 30+ daughters) staff excellent, spoke good English. Perhaps a little out of the way for some, but for we "locals', it was great. 5 min walk to great local morning markets and 10 mins walk to local night markets, both with some great street food. The unexpected free tuk tuk... More

When we first arrived, owner/manager Karan, greeted us with a warm smile and assisted checking us into the hotel.

The place was totally cute and the staff was really wonderful. They even let us shower at their house next door after we had already checked out. But the location just wasn't great. It was nice to see another side of Bangkok, but there's really not much around there. We couldn't find a good meal, nor was it close to... More

A really nice place to stay. It's this little quaint hotel but is managed by very kind and competent staff. They speak good English for Thai standards. They are very accommodating and patient in teaching us how to get around the city. The rooms are very good, well design, and comfortable. The comfort room is also pleasant and well designed....
