I found this place off a website listing bangkoks 10 quirky hotels, i later found out it was also in the LP, but it still turned out to be a cool place, abit away from the scene, but very friendly and well decorated. A good place to chill away from the madness. They also had some interesting breakfasts (which are not for everyones tastes) and the most vicious mosquitoes in the breakfast / public area, so beware. Overall a pleasant place to stay.

My partner and I stayed for 5 nights at PN and were not the least disappointed. We arrived ahead of schedule (we took the train from Malaysia) and were promptly checked in even though it was 11am. Our room was clean, simple and beautiful. It was a lovely feeling to return to PN after our full days; indeed entering the PN gates felt very much like returning home to a family.

The area of Thewet, in which PN is located, is an ideal location for travelers who crave the local Bangkok scene. It is not touristy, which is a plus. 10 minutes' walk away is the ferry stop, a very convenient and easy mode of transportation.

We were very sad to leave PN on our last day; we are still missing PN's healthy breakfasts and their friendly staff. PN family, thank you so much for making our trip a memorable one; we promise we will return in the near future!

All the staff (especially) Kasana were so thoughtful, patient and generous to me and my mother during our brief stoppover in Bangkok.

Simply the best Customer/client care ever experienced anywhere.

We had the privilege of staying in this very peaceful corner of the very bustling Bangkok for one night and was heart broken to leave. This is a really good effort at conservation. We were very impressed with all the recycled stuff. The attention to detail can be felt all around this place and one definitely feel human touch everywhere. The serene garden was a big plus. The place is alive in a very calming way. If you'd like to take a break and slow down your life this is the place for you. We will surely return to here for a longer stay in the future.The staff is very friendly and helpful and are a big part f the soul of the hotel.

My husband and I planned a trip to Thailand with our two sons, aged 3 and 6. We found this place under Trip Advisors hidden gems. And boy, we were not dissapointed. In fact it far exceeded our expectations. It was a great welcome to Thai culture and hospitality.
Nestled away down a back street it was really an oasis. as you entered through the artisan gates, you entered a secret garden. The garden has a swing- which our boys adored. A waterfall to a small fish pond and a open retaurant area decorated with care. The kitsch design included many exhibits of examples of Thai products and styles. The walls had murals depicting scenes of nature ad still life which were made with a fabulous attention to detail and vibrancy. I cannot compliment it enough. We arranged transfer from the airport with the hotel and were greeted with an ice cold drink and then taken to our taxi.
At the hotel we were greeted by beautifully mannered staff with a cool drink and a snack. The reception staff made us comfortable whilst they checked us in. They immediately befriended the children and made us all feel very very welcome.
After we checked in we were shown our room which was a really good size with balcony and air con. Complimentary water and towels were provided. Breakfast was very enlightening. It began with a small stack of pancakes with cocolate sauce and banana, we then had a savoury dish- omlettes, with wild musroom, or pancakes with creamed spinach, followed by fresh fruit. served with freshley squeezed juices, watermelon, papaya, and more, and coffee. It was a feast. they had no problem in changing items for the kids when they did not like the taste and did not charge any extra.
There was a free internet area where soft music played and they provided holisic therapies too. There was a stack of toys for the kids which we could drag out and the staff did not mnd at all when the kids ran through the courtyard, past reception, twanged the piano and jumped over the computers whilst screaming over and over again.
The staff even played with the kids whenever they could.The boys were a little bit nervous at first, but the Thai's persisted past the boy's shyness and hiding behind mum's skirt and they succeeded in making them comfortable with the attention from strangers. I would highly reccomend this place to couples, singles, families with children and would definately return again and again ad again.

i loved this place. 2 of my girlfriends and i stayed in bangkok for a week and we were VERY pleased with PN. the hotel's location wasn't ideal however cabs were so super affordable, we had no problem paying. plus we were allll over the city so it wouldn't have mattered where we were.

the decor, breakfast, and ambiance were by far our favorite things about PN. it had a lot of character and the staff was helpful & very friendly.

keep in mind that if you're planning to stay out to let the front desk know since they lock the doors at night.
