“Friendliest place in Bangkok”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

If you're tired of plastic hotels or hostels, Baan Tepa is the place for you. It simply feels like home, and Theo really goes the extra mile for his guests. He literally did that for me when I had a little trouble finding his house - he just dropped everything, and came after me!

Agree with all Of the other reviews...this place is a little away from the action which we found to be a plus in Bangkok. Still close enough to major sites via cab or ferry. Rooms tiny but comfortable and the entire place is decorated with care - very unique and traditional Thai style. Not fancy but nice. Theo is very helpful. Also check out Steve restaurant a few blocks away past the temple: fantastic food in a nice cool riverside setting.

Have stayed here two years in a row and will be back again. Clean, comfortable and Theo will take great care of you. Many different types of rooms some with showers and some showers down the hall Ubuntu it's no big deal. Quiet Soi 9 and close to bus 13 which will take you ever where.

It you want to rest in Bangkok like your home, Baan Tepa is a good choice for you.
I stayed here with my friends only one night, but I can contact with the great regard from the owner.
There are many different room at here. You can rest with your friends or your family not only in room but also other corner in Baan Tepa too, because there are many sitting area here.
If you stay here, you can easily travel to many famous places in BKK that the owner can advice you for the travel.

I love here.

We travelled throughout Southeast Asia for five weeks this summer, primarily staying in midrange boutique hotels, and Baan Tepa was easily our favourite. It was also the cheapest. We ended up extending our visit in Bangkok just to stay here a bit longer because we felt so much at home. The wooden house is lovingly restored by the incredibly sweet and interior design-savvy owners and beautifully decorated with all sorts of bric-a-brac. The place virtually begs to be photographed. All details are in place; from the ever-changing Thai breakfasts prepared by the owners to the complementary water in the fridge, cosy downstairs sitting area, useful travel advice from Theo, the owner, and great neighbourhood.

We did not know Dusit beforehand having previously stayed in Chinatown and near Sukhumvit Road, but it turned out to be a welcoming non-touristy part of the city with low buildings and pleasant local markets. We much preferred this to the glitzy Sukhumvit-area. There is no skytrain here, but everything is within reach by the inexpensive taxis that go by meter. We found the tuk-tuks way overpriced.

You should be aware that walls are thin in Baan Tepa. You can hear everything that is going on next door. Luckily, the other guests were considerate and quiet so it didn’t pose a problem. Rooms are small, but well-furnished, and beds and bathrooms are great. We ended up staying in three different rooms and felt most at home in 'Rajadamnern' downstairs. It’s a bit more expensive than the others but worth the extra baht as it’s bigger, almost like a tiny flat, and comes with an attached bathroom. The cheaper rooms have bathrooms down the hall.

We will most certainly stay here again.This is truly a home away from home.

I traveled throughout Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia for two months, and Baan Tepa was my favorite guest house. A beautiful wooden house refurbished in a manner that preserves its historic style, Baan Tepa manages to make Bangkok feel relaxing. There are few things better than navigating the chaos of Bangkok during the day and returning for a BYO beer on the couch in Baan Tepa's open air living room in the late afternoon. The location is ideal for anyone looking for a slice of life in a down-to-earth Thai neighborhood while remaining in striking distance of the important tourist sites, best accessed by Chao Phraya express boat from the nearby Thewet Pier. There are old buildings, great neighborhood restaurants, and bustling outdoor markets in the area. Baan Tepa's placement on a quiet soi (sidestreet) shelters you in its leafy courtyard from almost all noise. If all this weren't enough, the managers have great insights into the history and culture of modern Thailand. For discerning travelers, this is the place to stay in BKK.
