My husband and I stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. We would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in a really well run B&B away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. The rooms were very clean and well decorated, the bed very comfortable, the food was delicious, and the service was great. Karan really makes the place very special - he seemed to be a step ahead of us with planning. He would have tuk tuks and taxis waiting when we came down and when we were leaving he had arranged taxi pick-up at the right time without us asking.
The reason I only gave it a four star is the location. The hotel is a bit far from all the main attractions. The hotel pays for tuk tuk to the sky train one time a day. Once a the sky train, it took us 10 minutes via sky train to get to Saim Square, and it was a bit longer to the Sunday market and the other attractions. The riverfront attractions are very close. For us it was not a big issue on most nights, we did not mind the extra time getting from the B&B to the attractions around the city. And although the location is a little far, it was nice to come back to a peaceful area of town
