“Great family accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My family enjoyed four nights at PN and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was great, the accommodation clean, quiet and comfortable and the staff friendly. What more could you ask for? I would not hesitate in recommending it to fellow travellers (particularly those with small children) and will definitely stay there in the future.

Was only a night there, before I flew out of BKK, but was warmly welcomed, had a room I truly loved, and was given every assistance before I left late the next evening. Food was great too. And the detail everywhere in the building makes you feel you are a part of an art installation. having a great time too. Would definitely recommend it to anyone passing through BKK and who wanted to stay somewhere that its obvious that both owners and staff really care.

Love the whole concept of the hotel - and the fact that it is locally owned. You walk in the hotel and forget you are in Bangkok. I heard a guest complain about the mosquitos in the room but I did not have any issue with it during our 3-day stay. The set breakfast was well presented and delicious.

We spent nearly a week at Phranakorn with two kids (5 and 6). It´s perfectly located to the river, so you can get anywhere quite fast by river boats. And you could always take a taxi (which still is amazingly cheap).
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful - they even help to get a taxi that uses taximeters. And they really like kids there. The playground is perfect for the children to relax after long days of exploring the big city.
Rooms are beautiful and clean, fresh drinking water is provided in the rooms every day. The hotel´s slogan "have a slow life" is sometimes taken too seriously - especially when you order food or coffee...:-) But the overall groove is relaxed, friendly and open hearted and that´s why it is the only place to stay at in Bangkok - at least for families with children.

Room Tip: As a family-room ask for connected rooms. Space for two adults and three kids.

at the beginning and at the end of our trip to Thailand we (a couple and two children aged 4 and 18 months) stayed a few days at Phra-Nakorn Norn-Len Hotel. We enjoyed our stay because it feels a little bit like coming home. The kids played in the kids area and liked it very much. Breakfast was delicious both Thai and western style. Coffee was great. The room was comfortable and beautifully painted. The staff helped us with everything. A lot of litte extras: We could shower after our long flight, when we came a lot too early for check in.
To get to all the places of interest we took the taxi boat, 10 min walk from the hotel. We loved it to be there. We will surely come again on our next trip to Bangkok.

it was great in phrankakorn! the best place to come down in crazy bangkok! we (2 adults/ 1 child) stayed a few days at the beginning and at the end on our 6-weeks-thailand-trip in phranakorn, best choice! the only thing in the restaurant: it lasts very long with the food (1 hour..) and the staff forgot almost everything.. but for me it was a lesson in patience.. i would recommend this place and will come back! thanks!!

Room Tip: every room is special!

We just spent 3 days in Bangkok and stayed here. Bed was a bit too firm but room was very clean. Breakfasts were unique and delicious. The staff went out of their way to help us out, including walking 3 blocks to flag down a taxi for us. The boat taxi was located about 4 blocks away so that was also very convenient. We were alone but there were lots of families with kids and it seemed as though it was very family friendly with a play area for the kids and we even noticed them being serviced Mickey pancakes for breakfast! We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
