Phranakorn-Nornlen Hotel

If there was a place I would always always come back to, it is this hotel. It is so special that I am not sure anything can actually describe it and one has to visit to see for themselves. Just starting from the colors everywhere, the rooms so unique, the rooftop garden and bar, the breakfast, the small workshops, the staff. It is not in a touristy center and this is, in my opinion, what really gives it another layer of charm - the restaurants and sights around are really local and one gets to know a different Bangkok from what a touristy areas can offer. It is not far away from the river - 5-10 minutes walk to the pier where the boats stop. Overall, there will be no other place where I would be staying at in Bangkok when I return to this wonderful city.

Our breakfast and dinner , we serve with fresh ingredients everyday plus you can chill out on the rooftop with Buddha view , also the hotel is not far from the pier that you can go to the city easily , we hope you will visit us again

Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff who don't get in your way. Unlike most places around the coffee is good and the breakfast is fresh, delicious, no foods get wasted as every person's food is prepared on the spot and on request.
I will wholeheartedly recommend this place to others as the rates are comparable with other hotels in the area but the quality, atmosphere and overall concept are in my opinion unique.
One pretty cool feature is that guests can check out in the morning and still get a shower later in the day if their travel arrangements are in the evening - a total must in such a hot and humid place.
Only negative feedback will be that our room was incredibly hot when the air con wasn't on which meant that 15 minutes after getting back in the day/night we simply couldn't stay in until the air con got a bit of momentum.
All in all, awesome place to stay!

Just came back from Bangkok (always hard to leave this amazing city) and from the most amazing guest house i have ever visited. Phranakorn doesnt only feel like a home (with a very caring family) but also a designed one - the devil is in the details and in Phranakorn every detail counts.
Truly amazing - cant wait to get back there

It's a warm and quite place in Bangkok. I like the vintage atmosphere and the staff are helpful and friendly. It's like a home in Bangkok. I joined the cooking class during my stay and it's free and worth. The chef Tip and assistant Pai taught me the real taste of Thai food and we cooked our lunch in a beautiful kitchen. Breakfast is great! I love the concept of this hotel.

Room Tip: Each room is different style. The wifi is strong if your room are close to the dining area.

Best place in bankok; in fact most happy and homey hotel visited ever. Highly recommended!
Red some comments on the web, that the rooms are little small...I stayed in the joint (or connected) room, what is verry spacious, double size, and a real good deal for the price!
Think it would be fair, if this hotel, get rewarded as most creative and happy, in hotel lists. Thanks!

We had a very short stay at Phra-Nakorn Norn-len hotel and enjoyed the peacefulness of the place very much. We really enjoyed the food they serve and the attention to gave to the decoration of the hotel. They also have a very nice souvenir boutique, really worth visiting. Our dinner at the rooftop terrace was yummy and we had a beautiful view on the surroundings.
Only point for improvement: in the rooms you can hear really well everything that is happening in the building: every step on the stairs, every door that opens or closes, you can all hear it very well.

Room Tip: The hotel offers family rooms, a good choice for families with (young) children
