The staff is lovely, location is fab, the decor detail makes you smile, but it's overpriced for the small strange spaces they call rooms. I loved the concept but there are other more spacious options in the area that we found equally charming.

If you don't want the usual flash 6 star resort that you can get anywhere, but would rather a truly unique old Bangkok experience, then try this place. I took my wife and 2 girls and wanted the real thing and took the chance and what a surprise. Very clean & tidy, old thai furniture with 4 post bed and...

Stayed here with my wife, son and daughter-in-law in the 2-bedroom suite here. We all felt it was pretty much the nicest place any of us had ever stayed at, anywhere in the world, and we've all done a fair bit of traveling. Lots of unique personality, everything feels old-school, elegant, authentic, Thai, warm. Fairly centrally located, depending on what...

Keep calm: A nice location at the heart of old capital that you can see the clear sky, get rid of concrete jungle. And from this location you can also walk around or bike around to see the local market, visit the temple, enjoy local living, check the museum or even enjoy night life at Rambuttri road, near Khao San...

What can I add to the great reviews for this place? The rooms are very pretty, staff very helpful and breakfast amazing. The hotel is located in a nice part of the city.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
