Chitlada and staff were such friendly, helpful and attentitive hosts! Situated in a quiet residential area of Bangkok away from the tourists and central to everything. Very clean and homely establishment . Don't look any further stay here!

It was a very good experience staying at the Bhuthorn.
We saw a different side of Bangkok; relaxed, old style, with lots of local places & great street food. The location is also ideal to see several tourist sites at walking distance.

The room (Bhuthorn) has a very nice antique wood furniture/decoration and the management by Chitlada Senghluang is great. She helped us with all kinds of directions (in thai for the taxi drivers) and the surprise birthday present from her daughter was wonderful! Thanks again!

We stayed three nights at The Bhuthorn on our recent trip to Bangkok. We were swayed by the reviews on TA and were quite happy with the outcome. It was like staying in your own home in Bangkok. The breakfast was a 5 course event and Chitlada was on hand to supervise our breakfast on two of the three days we were there! All our side trips to the close cultural attractions were mapped out as well as directions given to the taxi drivers to further destinations. A very pleasant stay. We would recommend to couples young and old looking for a b & B experience right in the heart of the old City..

We stayed here for two nights after returning from Koh Samui on our honeymoon. Bangkok in May is unbelievably humid and for that reason if you are spending even just a couple of days in Bangkok, my tip is it is worth staying somewhere that has a swimming pool or better amenities. It is right to say that the Bhuthorn has been well converted but its size and status means that it not the most comfortable place to stay. The shower rooms are tiny and in the Nara room, the toilet overlooks where people eat breakfast. The location is close to the some of the large tourist sites such as the Grand Palace but is actually very difficult for taxis and tuk tuks to find even with the map provided so to get out accross the city is hard. This added to the stress of getting about in a limited time frame. I am not an advocate of anonymous 5 star hotels which is why I chose this bed and breakfast but it didn't live up to our expectations. We were not offered afternoon tea and there was no coffee or tea facilities in the room or 'local finger snacks' as described on the website which there should have been for approx £80 a night.

There were also cockroaches scurrying around the ground floor.

We were offered the limousine pick up for 1500 THB (approx £30) which I took up because I was concerned about the ease of getting to the accommodation given some of the reveiws plus we were offered a london cab which I thought would be nice for our honeymonn. The London cab was changed (with notice in fairness although short) to a rather dirty old saloon car (the alternative car was not with notice). On our return to the airport the same journey in a public taxi cost 300 THB (£6). A return trip later in our holiday showed that it was in fact easy to get a public taxi from the airport as the staff speak good english and it again cost about 300 THB. I think it would be nicer for the bed and breakfast to explain that this to guests via e-mail so they have a choice. Trying to book things from around the other side of the world means you are in their hands to some degree.

However the young men who worked there are extremely helpful and sweet and the breakfasts absolutely delicious. You do get to see a less sanitised version of Bangkok and the restaurant Chote Chitr was round the corner but I just feel that while it is offering the more authentic accommodation experience the price to stay are not authentic.

Although we only had a one-night stay in The Bhuthorn, we can’t recommend it highly enough. From the friendly welcome we received upon arrival to our cool and airy room, tastefully decorated and with a large comfortable bed, The Bhuthorn is an oasis of calm and tranquility in the middle of the city. The breakfast set us up for the day – yoghurt, salad, cooked eggs and ham, croissants and fresh fruit, all freshly prepared and served.
This B&B is ideally situated and within walking distance of many attractions. Highly recommended and definitely on our list for another stay next time we visit Bangkok.

We stayed at The Bhuthorn for 5 nights on our way back to the US from a couple of weeks in Indonesia. This being our first time in Thailand, we didn't know what to expect and this charming B&B was the perfect way to get into the bustling city of Bangkok. It is tucked away literally just minutes away from The Grand Palace, Wat Po and several other historic locations. Chitlada, the woman who owns and runs the placeand her staff were very gracious and did much to make our stay wonderful. Because we booked with fairly short notice, we had to change rooms, but they made our transition very smooth. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative to the typical hotel experience as it is a great opportunity to be staying in a real old city neighborhood in the midst of locals. The entire neighborhood is incredibly safe as we walked home from Khao San Road well into the night on a couple of occassions.

The glowing reviews I read on TripAdvisor for the Bhuthorn held true - this small B&B is simply fantastic. This was my husband and I's first trip to Thailand, and Bangkok was our first stop. We did not arrive at the hotel until around 10PM. Unfortunately when we got out of the cab, I left all of our documents (passports, money, id's, credit cards, etc.) in the cab. I think the innkeeper (forget her name but she was delightful) thought I was crazy, but she immediately started making calls trying to track down the cab driver. Luckily, someone was looking out for us that night as the cab driver returned to the hotel 45 minutes later after he realized we left our passport pouch in the back of his taxi - everything was still there! This was when we knew we had traveled to the right place!

We stayed in the large room downstairs in the back of the building. It was so cute and comfortable - loved the French Colonial decor. While this hotel is no frills, we really felt right at home whenever we walked in the door and were so kindly greeted by our innkeeper. It was almost as though we had the whole place to ourselves, as we never crossed paths with any of the other guests staying there. We dined both mornings in the LOVELY outdoor courtyard in the back both mornings. The breakfast was delicious!

Before leaving the inn, the innkeeper always asked where we were going and wrote down the destination in thai and english so that if we hired a taxi, they would know where to take us. She also made sure we had a map with us every time we left. This was very comforting, especially as we stepped out into a very big and unfamiliar city!

I will reiterate what other travelers have said - taxis have a difficult time finding this hotel. Make sure you print the map out and carry it with you to give to the taxi when you are heading to the Bhuthorn for the first time. It might take them an extra 5-10 minutes to find it, especially at night!

I cannot say more positive things about the Bhuthorn and I would return in a heartbeat (if we liked Bangkok). Unfortunately, however, one full day in Bangkok was ENOUGH for us. The one suggestion I have to the Bhuthorn is that it would be nice if they offered refreshments that you could purchase such as soda water or wine. We arrived late and were thirsty for both water and a cocktail.... would have been nice to have had that available at the hotel as we had to venture out on foot to find something.
