I stayed at Focal Local with my partner for six nights over two visits. I usually stay at Siam Square in Bangkok but chose this place for a change, with the aim of being more in the 'real' Bangkok. The staff are super helpful and friendly, particularly the manager Karan. They helped us with all of our queries and gave us some great tourist advice too.
The room was great, extremely clean and with good quality facilities. The room was on the small side, but fine for two people. It was a bit noisy during the day but to be expected based on the location. At night it was much quieter.
The location isn't perfect, although having looked at a map before arriving it was as expected. You can walk to the sky train in about 20 minutes and less to the river pier. Or Focal Local offer a free tuk tuk once per day to either destination. We ended up spending up to 400B per day on transport.
Breakfast was fantastic (we opted for Thai as per recommendations on Trip Advisor). Everything is cooked fresh and is delicious!
Would definitely recommend staying at Focal Local.
