This immaculate hotel has a lovely atmosphere, in large part due to the quality and attitude of the staff. It's quite a change from the impersonal feel of Bangkok's giant international hotels.
Rooms are not large but they're very comfortable and pleasantly decorated. The location in the old city - close to Wat Pho and the Grand Palace - is a wonderful contrast to the madness downtown.
The nearby wholesale flower market is another treat to visit. We had the best meal of our stay at a street stall there - noodle soup with duck for less than $1 a head. There are not a lot of Western-style restaurants in walking distance and you'd have to hop in a taxi if nightlife's your thing. During the day it's easy to head downtown by river ferry -definitely the best mode of transport in Bangkok - and Skytrain.More
