Initially we found this hotel very difficult to find (as did our taxi driver from the airport). We were dropped off at the wrong hotel by the taxi driver who insisted we were at the correct one, even though I kept telling him we were not. We were about an 8 minute walk from the correct hotel but managed to...

Advantages: quite clean rooms, very good breakfast and nearby the centre of bangkok. Disadvantages: rooms and toilettes are quite small, it's difficult to move around. The owner couldn't help us with anything, she didn't have a map of the city, wasn't able to give us advices about places and activities or the simple finding of a place to buy bus...

We stayed at Souire at the start of November 2016 for our first time in Bangkok. Hotel is located down a small alley off the Democracy Monument roundabout. Some taxis had a hard time trying to figure out where it was. We learned quickly to just take a picture on Google maps and ask to get dropped off at the...

We had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is located right in the core of the city and the staff is kind and always available. They speak good English and serve the perfect breakfast to start the day, with fresh fruit, coffee/tea, baked bread with butter, jam, eggs and bacon.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
