Beautiful and simple. Quite traditional Thai house on busy road. Short walk to the action. Great place to sleep. Not much of a common area to hang out or meet other travelers. Wonderful people. Nice family vibe. When our taxi arrived at 11:00 pm after a delayed flight, the guy at the desk was outside to help us with bags... More

My wife and I arrived on an evening flight after traveling 26 hours from the US for a first visit to Bangkok. We had a reservation at Baan Chantra but had no idea what to expect. How pleasant it was to have the host waiting for our arrival with the room (spotlessly clean and comfortable) ready for us. Breakfast in... More

We stayed at the hotel during our holiday in Thailand. It's close to many of the tourisy locations (walking distance to the Grand Palace and the The Temple of Dawn). The rooms were simple and clean. The breakfast was very tasty. It is also close to Khao San road, even though we personally liked the road just opposite Khao San... More

Off a busy street with businesses and street venders of all types, ideal location for seeing real Bangkok. Yet once behind its glass doors it is an old style traditional woodern Thai house with good basic service and very helpful staff to help answer your questions on where to go.

This guesthouse let you feel the charm of a real Thai house. It is conveniently located near Khao San Road, and there are pleanty of nice restaurants nearby. The rooms are very clean and they provide all the essentials (towels, shampoo etc). But it is a bit more expensive than other options you can find in BKK

The bed was very good, and we had no problem with the traffic noise(since we use AC and the bed is not close to the window, our room was Chantra.).

Stayed 2 nights, the first night was downstairs. The smell in the room was putrid. The septic smell permeates through the room from the bathroom. On the second night moved upstairs where the room was lovely, a complete contrast. The upstairs room was very noisy with the main road traffic and car races late at night but its much better...

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.
