I stayed here for a could of nights when I was solo travelling in Thailand. Obviously the pricing is way way above backpacker prices, but it is a great place to spend a few nights in luxury if you want to treat yourself. Very nice furnishings, all made me feel at home immediately. Wonderful staff, particularly the owner who is... More

Stayed here for two nights with another couple in April 2014. Great family run small hotel. Owner is lovely, breakfast wonderful. Clean quiet room even though our room (no 1?) was overlooking the main road. Security guard was a nice chap. I can't recommend this place enough and I would definitely stay here again. Location can't be faulted.

My husband and I enjoyed this small boutique hotel. The owner is very obliging and prepared wonderful breakfasts. Loved the husky security guard, extremely friendly (great smile!) and helpful. Unfortunately she has working for her an unpleasant fellow who gave us the attitude that he could not be bothered with us. Had a difficult discussion about a tub to wash... More

Was meant to stay one night, but stayed two as did not want to leave! Although located on a street it was so quiet inside that it was a haven to return to after the noise and bustle of Bangkok and it was nice to see a security guard at the gate. Our host - Kulthida - was welcoming, kind... More

This place is a great choice to stay in Bangkok. It's an original Thai house very well preserved, clean and quiet. The staff is very professional and friendly and speak very good english which is very helpful when assistance with details is required. They also provide you with advice of how to get around and nice places to visit. The... More

Stayed there over the Thai new year, for the owner and staff nothing is to much trouble, we had a room at the front of the hotel, and there was no noise from the road outside. The location was perfect for the major sights, with a good selection of restaurants close by. We had an early flight home so being... More

Family-run Baan Chantra is a rare find in Bangkok. The owner and staff do everything imaginable to make your stay a satisfying one. We spent 3 nights in the deluxe Rose room with its small private garden at the back of the hotel. It's hard to believe that busy Samsen road is at the front of the house. The hotel's... More

Baan Chantra is an oasis in the wonderful chaos that is Bangkok. We felt so welcomed--especially wonderful after a day and a half of exhausting travel. Kulthilda was so kind and very helpful, and the rest of the staff was great also. Our room was lovely and included a computer--so helpful. Breakfast was great. I am so glad that we... More

I stayed here one night between arrival to Bangkok and a flight the following day. The location was perfect for a one day stopover in Bangkok as it was very close to most of the main areas. As another reviewer said, the rooms were a bit disappointing for the price range. The general atmosphere of the hotel was very nice... More
