We chose The Artist's Place after reading some great reviews (like those posted here) and so we were really excited for this fun, quirky, comfortable guesthouse. We were traveling as a group of 3 women who are all well traveled and have stayed in a wide variety of hostels, hotels and home stays in our travels. Unfortunately, we left after... More

I randomly walked into the place, was greeted by Charlee and offered fruits, immediately fell in love, ended up staying in BKK twice more than initially planned -- would've hated the city if i hadn't found the Artist's Place! The place has an artsy, hippie atmosphere with the owner Charlee's paintings, poems and other decorations everywhere. Various and spacious common... More

Super nice hostel of the tourist grid! We where to stay a couple of nights before we went on to Chang Mai but ended up staying like two weeks. The hostel is always visited by Charlies friends and family which sends of such a nice vibe. Charlee even invited us to his weekend house in Trat. I would recommend the... More

For the real traveler who has had enough of the Kao San Road area and wants to stay in an authentic Thai soi but still be close enough to all the sights and shopping area's. When staying at the Artists' Place one gets a true feeling of Thai city life without the headaches from scamming and cheating Tuk Tuk drivers... More

Charlee is the kind soul who's been a fixture of Krung Thonburi Soi 1! His guesthouse isn't developed for the person who wishes to take a break from city life. It's abit funky: postings, art, statues, trinkets. He's made major upgrades over the years. Most recent is the open patio overlooking the corner of the soi. Don't worry, you will... More

The signs around The Artists Place say it all, "Some guesthouses make profits, we make friends." The first time we stayed there we planned to stay for one night and ended up staying almost two weeks. Perfect for those wanting a home-feel guesthouse with character rather than the busy and loud Khaosan Rd digs. Set in a charming, local Thai... More

Lovely cheap place to see and live something different apart from kaosan rd. and other busy spots. This location is full of history, art and friendly people in a real local atmosphere. also you will find a good connection to the most interesting parts of bangkog with the sky-train, busses and boats. charly, the owner is very helpful in all...

This is a very unique and funky guest house which you should definitely check out! But I am not 100 % sure that you'll like it. It is truly an Artists's place and you will feel like in an art gallery or museum. Unfortunately the sleeping quality is so bad that as a guest house it's simply bad. I am... More

That place is not a simple cheap accommodation. It's also the best place in Bangkok to make good friends. It's more about a mix between an art galerie, a live music place, and a new home. If you need anything, ask Charlie. He can help you and he's the saint of the travellers. Thank you Charlie ;)
