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. I really really enjoyed staying here. We wanted a proper experience of Thailand during our travels, and am really glad we scouted out this place. It's... More

I rarely take time to write reviews, but I want to be sure that Karan and the staff at Focal Local are acknowledged for their amazing bed and breakfast.

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. The location is good when you want to use the boat to cross the river. but the taxi is cheap, and is getting better as well.... More

We stayed at the Focal Local twice - and both times we had a beautiful room with enough space, a clean bathroom and a comfortable bed.

I stayed at Focal Local with my partner for six nights over two visits. I usually stay at Siam Square in Bangkok but chose this place for a change, with the aim of being more in the 'real' Bangkok.

We stayed at focal local just for one night and was amazing, the staff is great and very helpful, the breakfast is one of the best dishes we had at bangkok. The location is good because you can get there by boat, taxi or subway. The neighborhood its full of small restaurants and its not the typical touristic place.
