This small family run guesthouse (although boutique hotel is probably a better description) is an absolute gem! We stayed here for 4 nights in May 2007 and wished it could have been longer. The hotel itself is a beautifully renovated Thai home which is kept spotless clean. However, what makes this place truly stand out from all the other place we have ever stayed in is the people that run it. Kulthida and her staff are amazing, going out of their way to help. From a really early check-in to the best restaurant recommendations and even cooking lessons, nothing was too much trouble. Our one tip would be to go for the Thai breakfasts. While eating a curry for breakfast may sound like a weird or even scary idea at first they are really delicious and you can try something new every day. Also the coffee here is the best in town!
The location is brilliant. It is in a more residential area so there are no loud bars nearby yet it is still only a 10 minute stroll to Khao San road. If we are being critical it is situated on quite a busy road and so if you are in one of the rooms at the front of the property you can expect traffic noise throughout the night. However, the back rooms are quiet and you have to remember that this is Bangkok and I am not sure there is such a thing as a quiet road!
