Focal Local is a boutique Bed and Breakfast located on Thonburi district in historic downtown Bangkok. Formerly known as the old capital of Thailand, Thonburi district offers the perfect getaway from busy city life without compromising on transport. The ideal location to visit a local touch of Bangkok, with local temples, daily markets and local food stalls. Focal Local is just 5 minutes away from the BTS sky train station and Chao Phraya River by Tuk Tuk [Thai Motor Tricycle Taxi]. Our different themed rooms are designed to match the diverse tastes of all our guests. In addition, the authentic Thai or Western complimentary breakfast is served upon guest's preference. We offer guests extra services including in-room WiFi, Internet corner, and free shuttle Tuk Tuk to BTS sky train or the pier. We can also assist you booking some tours in and outside Bangkok. We look forward to making your stay enjoyable.

is there free parking available?
There is no on site parking and we did not have a car. I would suggest sending an email to see if they can make arrangements. I agree with the other person who replied, that the owner is extremely accommodating.

How far is this from the airport? Do you have a shuttle to get people from the airport?
Hi John Thank you for contacting us. We're about 30-minute driver from the airport. We can arrange the pick up service for 900 Baht (we hire a company to do). Honestly, metered taxi would be cheaper, you just need to make sure that the driver goes by meter. If you have further questions, please let us know. :)
