After looking up over a dozen places in Bangkok to stay during our short 2 night stay, we finally settled on Focal Local, thanks to TripAdvisor and all the reviews.
We were in Thailand for a short 5 day trip for our wedding anniversary, and were travelling with our 2 and a half year old daughter.
Every interaction with Focal Local and their staff was perfect and we could not have asked for more. The B&B is small, clean, neat and very conveniently located near the central pier. It was easy to find considering we listened to Karans recommendation to carry a printed map of the location.
My wife and we were very happy to stay at Focal Local considering the experience was completely different from staying at some large hotel chain, we felt at home at Focal Local. We stayed in 'Splash' the room and bath was very clean and our room got plenty of natural light, my daughter loved the little open space and sitting area on the first floor.
I have made 3 trips to Thailand previously, however this was the first time I had Thai food for breakfast and all thanks to Focal Local, their breakfast was just perfect, including the glass of fresh juice and the Thai desert.
I would not want to end this review without thanking Karan and the entire staff, they made our stay special.
