Truly truly lovely place to stay. We stayed here for two nights as part of our honeymoon. Everyone told us we wouldn't like Bangkok so we only stayed two nights, which we greatly regret, thanks to the fabulous Bhuthorn. There was actually a 'buy two nights get one night free' offer on when we booked, but we cancelled our third night to go to Chiang Mai. (wish we hadn't!) Because it was the same price for three nights or two and we'd cancelled one, our landlady arranged for us to have dinner at a local restaurant which The Bhuthorn paid for. So nice!
The Bhuthorn is in a perfect location, near to all temples and so on, is very atmospheric and the landlady fed us all kinds of delicious Thai treats that we'd never have tried. Make sure you have afternoon tea! She is also very helpful, giving tips about Bangkok.
Recommendations (all walking distance from Bhuthorn) : Wat Pho for wonderful temple-seeing and a proper Thai massage in the temple grounds
The Chinatown Eats Walk from Lonely Planet - you won't regret it!
Boat trip on the river
In a nutshell, we will definitely return to Bangkok and we will be staying once again at the Bhuthorn. We have met others on our travels who didn't like Bangkok and it seemed to be because they stayed further out of town and got ripped off by taxi drivers or stayed in sub-standard accommodation. Book the Bhuthorn!
