We stayed for 3 nights and did enjoy this B&B for the most part. Our room ("Yesteryears") was nice and the Thai breakfast was yummy. The staff was nice and friendly and the 1 free tuk-tuk ride each day was a nice gesture. But I do think that it's a little bit expensive for what you get, and it is pretty far away from Bangkok's tourist attractions. While some people might like to be a bit off the beaten track and away from touristy areas, I prefer being more in the center of things.
So while there is no denying that this is a very pleasant B&B, I will probably chose to stay somewhere else the next time I'm in Bangkok.
