The Artists' Place
Ranked #193 of 755 Bangkok B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 July 2013

The signs around The Artists Place say it all, "Some guesthouses make profits, we make friends." The first time we stayed there we planned to stay for one night and ended up staying almost two weeks. Perfect for those wanting a home-feel guesthouse with character rather than the busy and loud Khaosan Rd digs. Set in a charming, local Thai neighborhood but walking distance from the skytrain station. We've used Charlee's place as a homebase for our loop around South East Asia and always look forward to returning! Charlee is full of good advice on everything, from the best way to get to the weekend markets, to the best place to get your hair cut. They offer free filtered drinking water, free laundry, free tea & coffee, free wi-fi, free use of the kitchen and guest fridge. The bed we have is a bit hard but everything else definitely outweighs that. It may be a little difficult to find at first, but well worth the effort. I could not recommend this place more.

Room Tip: Try the Penthouse rooms on the top floor for a view overlooking the town.

Lovely cheap place to see and live something different apart from kaosan rd. and other busy spots. This location is full of history, art and friendly people in a real local atmosphere. also you will find a good connection to the most interesting parts of bangkog with the sky-train, busses and boats. charly, the owner is very helpful in all kinds of things...... is definitively a place to come back...... thanx for all

This is a very unique and funky guest house which you should definitely check out! But I am not 100 % sure that you'll like it. It is truly an Artists's place and you will feel like in an art gallery or museum. Unfortunately the sleeping quality is so bad that as a guest house it's simply bad. I am so sorry to say that as Charly, the owner, is a real sweetheart and the place itself is just great. It's noisy, hot, the beds are harder than stones and the rooms are a bit too pricey for what is offered. You'll have free water, wifi and laundry service included though. It's a great place to hang out and meet people (of which most not living an ordinary life). ;) The area is excellent, very nice Thai neighbourhood, lots of small food stalls and also a 24 hour supermarket just around the corner. Unfortunately, you'll also find quite a lot of Moskitos there. So my advice: If you are an ordinary Thailand traveller, who likes some little luxury and partying at Khao San you probably don't fit into this guest house. If you like it more "alternative" that's definitely the place to go!

Ps: Check out my video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdpKuZCYVYc (sorry for the bad quality). :D

Room Tip: If you want to have a window and daylight without burning to death, the only AC room in the house is...

That place is not a simple cheap accommodation. It's also the best place in Bangkok to make good friends. It's more about a mix between an art galerie, a live music place, and a new home. If you need anything, ask Charlie. He can help you and he's the saint of the travellers.

Thank you Charlie ;)
