Very clean, quiet, and modern rooms. Hearty and tasty breakfasts cooked by Karan himself. Beautifully decorated place with a lovely sitting area on the 2nd floor (make sure to check it out if your room is on the ground floor). Interesting location in a non-touristy part of town. (Visiting the major sites by longboat required an extra cross-river boat hop, but this added to your overall experience of Bangkok.) A lot nearby including a great little massage place, markets, and local eateries. Above all, warm hospitality from the hosts and staff. Once we asked to borrow a knife after buying a large papaya from the market-instead, they offered to do it for us and had it sent to our room all neatly cut up and arranged on a plate with pick-forks. Thank you to Karan and his Dad and aunt, and all the staff at Focal Local for a very enjoyable stay.
