The moment we came in from our 20+ hours of travel, Karan made us feel welcome and alive again! The cool lemon drink helped, of course, but it was mainly his genuine smile that did the trick!
As we found out during the days of our stay, Karan was one of the reliable Thais.. :) He warned us against the hustlers and was helpful with every question or service asked. We ended up booking more nights than originally planned, for Bangkok and its heat were quite overwhelming in the beginning and Focal Local just felt so good coming home to.
The home-made Thai breakfast is a must. Very tasty and made with love!
Rooms are unique, modern and very clean. Make sure you get a room on the top level if you want to do some siesta's or sleep in.
Karan helped us get 'real' taxi's, flights and all we wanted. He is the best; thanks Karan!
A big thumbs up for this place!
