Having seen glowing reviews and lovely photos of this guesthouse, we were disappointed when we found that it was not what we expected. The old building itself is lovely but somewhat neglected. Perhaps there were renovations about to happen, but it would have been nice to know this instead of concluding that the place was always so messy. The courtyard... More

We booked a twin room here on the strength of the photos and good reviews, particularly as the photos showed a very attractive garden setting. There was some confusion when we arrived as they seemed to be flustered(although we had booked well in advance and had been in email contact) and rushed around getting our room ready, although as it...

Though a bit far from the centre, the place was lovely, peaceful and unique. The service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Rooms were quite small but nicely decorated. There were no proper windows so you couldn't see outside (I imagine there was hardly anything to see in the street though). Anyway as the atmosphere was so special, we... More

This was a delightful little guesthouse to stay in. The decor was lovely, felt very authentic. The rooms were small but clean and had comfy beds and mosquito nets. Water was available in the fridge just outside our room which was very handy. The guest house is located near Dusit Park (which is nice to have a wander around) so... More

Our shower room was in need of a fresh coat of paint.The building structure was interesting and very old. Theo the host is a very friendly and sociable person and he will advise you as much as he can.. Theo... More

Stayed here this past weekend. Spent more time than we had planned in the house, as we were hemmed in by the protests. It is located right beside the government buildings. Aside from that the house itself is lovely, very traditional Thai. Our room was not much bigger than the bed, but was fine for what we wanted. The toilet... More

A really nice old wooden house from the 1920s or 30s situated down a quiet soi in the Dusit area of the city. Very friendly and helpful guy runs the place. Was easy for the taxi driver from the airport to find. A central courtyard for eating and reading, no shoes indoors, spotless polished wooden floors, bedrooms are large and... More

Theo is the best host ever through all my trip! I've been to Bangkok before, but only this time I feel at home and Theo is like one of our family member.

Baan Tepa is situated north of the Banglampoo area, very local and urban fringe feel to the neighborhood. Not a lot of tourism appeal, save for the Ananta Samakhom throne plaza north and east of the hotel. Rooms are charming, the one i stayed in had a really narrow bathroom outside but great atmosphere nontheless. The lush greenery around helps... More
