What a charming place!! The kitsch decor is stylishly done and the hospitality is AMAZING!! There are free nighttime bike tours available at a few set days/times throughout the week and free bicycle usage for guests. We were upgraded to a bigger/nicer room than the one we booked out of consideration of the ongoing construction going on behind the building.... More

We had read the great reviews and were not disappointed. Excellent location (difficult to find though, taxi had to circle around when we first arrived), walking distance to many of the best attractions (Grand Palace, Wat Pho, etc) and many great restaurants. Service by Jason and his family is superb. Breakfast is a daily treat. Little Thai gifts left as... More

The front door opened as we got out of the taxi and we were welcomed like family. The breakfast was an excellent local dish served with good coffee and a smile. Loved the funky decor and the gorgeous antiques. It's small but comfortable, more like a family B&B than a hotel. A great alternative to the standard generic hotel fare.... More

Very nice place and great experience. People are fantastically friendly. I loved our room and the breakfast experience. The location is very good when you want to visit the old center.

I stayed in the Queen loft suite for two nights. I was welcomed with a refreshing lemon iced tea and lovely staff. The room itself is two floors, with lots of quirky features and lots of thought and detail being put into the decor. Even in July, coming up to monsoon season it is INCREDIBLY humid and the fans and... More

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.
