My partner and I stayed at Famous House over the NY period. Booking the room required direct email contact with the guesthouse as it was not linked to online booking sites. However this was not a problem at all as O (the contact person) was extremely helpful, quick to reply and spoke very good English.
We stayed in the red room, which is closest to the road so there was some noise from the passing traffic. Nonetheless the room was very tastefully and practically designed, and well maintained. To name a few things:
- There were enough shelves and places to hang clothes in the room and bathroom
- Ample supply of electric sockets fitted with international plugs
- Room cleaning service is available upon request, which makes it great for slightly longer stays
- The bed was very comfortable
One small tick that we encountered was that the water pressure for the shower was not fantastic. Apart from that the guesthouse is very close to Chalok Baan Kao beach (less than 10 minutes walk), is surrounded by lots of great restaurants, and the courtyard and pool makes a great place to relax in a serene garden surrounding.
Overall the Famous House gives great value for money, friendly and helpful service and a great ambience to end and start the day. We felt very much at home staying here and would definitely come back again!
