This is a lovely little guesthouse full of atmosphere. The rooms are bright, airy and filled with antiques and the central green courtyard is a welcome escape from the bustle of the city. All rooms are slightly different (though some wear and tear is showing and they're not completely soundproof), surrounding a lovely cafe in the center. The owners play soft jazz or classical music in the afternoons and in the evening, hold a Thai vegetarian buffet. I cannot recommend their cooking class highly enough, both for technique and sheer entertainment value.

We were lucky enough to get the last room at Gap's House. It's located a block inside the walled Old City area on a small alley. It's a good location for exploring the city.

Our room was the smallest of their rooms. Many of the rooms could easily be used as triples (and we saw one that was). Our room had A/C and a fan. The bathroom had a hand-held shower (no shower stall, the whole room was tile with a drain in the middle), toilet and sink. Breakfast is included (eggs, toast and fruit).

This is a great budget choice. We paid the equivalent of $12US a night. The room was clean. Furnishings were a bit worn, but the beds were comfortable.

The complex has a lovely patio with a bar that is the perfect place to hang out. The jungle plantings keep it very cool and the drink prices are quite reasonable.

Gap's has their own cooking school. For 800 baht you get hands-on cooking class. The have you do 5 dishes before lunch (which you eat for lunch), then 3 after lunch which they pack up for you to take back with you for dinner. The can accomodate vegetarians, food allergies, and food preferences. Each student has their own burner and wok to cook on. They provide all the ingredients already chopped and do all the dishes. The class was lots of fun and the instructors were very informative. They start the day with a tour through a market and discuss various ingredients. They welcome questions.

The hotel staff speaks fluent English. They'll help you with tours (private or group). The people we met who were staying there were very nice.

There's a vegetarian restaurant on premises, but we never ate there.

We had originally planned to stay only one night, but Gap's was so great we stayed 5!

I'd definitely stay there again.
