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

This small hotel is absolutely perfect for a Bangkok city Break. It offers respite from an amazing buzzing city. The hotel is situated very close to the vibrant KaoSan Road. Kulthilda and the staff at this family run hotel were extremely welcoming and attentive to all our requirements, which was great after a long exhaustive flight from the U.K. We... More

This hotel is more like a home. It is charming and beautiful, the owner Kulthilda is AMAZING. She is so gracious and helpful, recommending places to go and marking them on our map! We would definitely stay here again, we were sad to leave. Highly recommended!!

Recently stayed at Baan Chantra for 4 days and LOVED everything about my time there. Kulthilda was the best hostess. She arranged to have us picked up at the airport which was greatly appreciated after 24 hours of travel. She helped us in getting around the city, tips on cabs, on what to see, on where to get great thai... More

Very helpful and super-friendly staff. We felt at home from the first second. The location near kao San road (but not right in the middle of it) is just perfect. It's true the place doesn't come at a budget price but it's worth every Bath.

We booked this after reading other reviews, and were pleased that the positive reviews were wholly accurate. If you want to stay near the Kho San road but don't want the noise and grime, Baan Chantra is perfect. It's a beautiful traditonal wooden house about 5 mins walk from the backpacker streets round Kho San road, is very clean and... More

"Let me take your bags, you're on holiday," were the first words from our wonderful hostess, Kulthida. Unfailingly friendly and helpful, once you express an interest Kulthida is full of the history of her hotel and the surrounding area, and with suggestions for things to eat and do in Bangkok. There's no doubt that she herself loves Thai food. Our... More
