After spending a few days in chaotic Sukhumvit area, it was a pleasant surprise to find a tranquil place in the midst of Bangkok. A challenge for taxi drivers to locate, this very beautiful wooden house is tucked in a very quiet corner of the suburbs but in close proximity to the ancient temples of old Bangkok.
We were welcomed by the very soft-spoken house staff and it was as if you are being ushered into your own home. The rooms are very well appointed, spotless and cozy! Near the stairs, they even have a supply of complimentary fruits for guests to consume. My children were delighted when they discovered a kids' nook in the basement, with a reading area filled with books and a computer/internet area for games. The staff were extremely patient with having kids around, indulging them with an endless supply of papers and colored pens to keep them busy.
The breakfast menu was fantastic, with choice of set meals, and taken under the warm Thai sunshine. The hostel also offers authentic Thai dishes for lunch and early dinner. Apparently their Red Curry is one of the best!
A bit pricier than regular hotels in Thailand, but to experience Thai culture at its best, it was definitely worth it.
It was such sorrow to leave Baan Dinso at the end of our trip but we hope to be back again and stay longer.
