The Bhuthorn
Ranked #93 of 698 Bangkok B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 February 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Bhuthorn for 4 nights in December 2012. It was a fabulous experience. The location is ideal - in the old city, walking distance to so many sites, but on a quiet side-street away from the hubbub. We had a two-story room, beautifully appointed. The breakfast each day was better than the last - incredible food!! The service was great, and I would recommend this B&B unconditionally! Will definitely stay again when next in Bangkok.

Room Tip: Two story room is lovely. I believe it's called "Nara."

By the end of this review I will run out of positive words to describe our recent stay at The Bhuthorn. Communication before arrival was fast and courteous and incredibly helpful so we knew we were in for something special but, wow, The Bhuthorn far exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival we were treated to ginger tea (to help settle the stomach after travel), everything from there on was perfection. Staff is fabulous-so helpful and kind. Rooms are lovely-beautifully appointed with antiques, great shower. Breakfast is huge, fresh and fantastic-don't miss the Thai bento box. Afternoon tea was delightful and much needed (Bangkok is hot & steamy, can't tell you how wonderful it was to take an afternoon break for iced coffee or tea and fabulous treats from local vendors). Location is perfect-easy walk to every major site (Grand Palace, Wat Pho, National Museum, river cruises) and there are a whole bunch of smaller sites equally wonderful which rarely rate a mention in guidebooks (don't miss the Tiger God Shrine, steps from the b&b, and Wat Rachabophit, which we had all to ourselves). The staff tells you that this is your home while in Bangkok and that's exactly how we felt, like we had a wonderful home in a small historic neighborhood in the heart of the Old Town. Honestly, The Bhuthorn is perfect. So very, very glad we stayed there, they made our first visit to Bangkok utterly joyful.

We stayed 5 nights at the Bhuthorn, it's like a 5* hotel but familiar - thats what it makes so unique. Perfect service, very nice and stylish rooms and the most gentle people working there. And i know when i'm talking the best hotels in the world. I would stay there immediately again!

As others have remarked, The Bhuthorn is a little gem. It is delightfully managed by Chitlada (for one) who makes a special effort to see that guests needs are cared for. The B&B goes out of its way to provide those little extras that make a place memorable and the inclusion of afternoon with fine china is just a case in point. The decor is tastefully done and there is an original feel to the rooms and decorations. As the location is old town Bangkok, one is within walking distance of so many attractions and there are some excellent, inexpensive restaurants nearby. Also, as the hotel is located in a little square off the main roads, it is quiet which, in Bangkok, is quite an achievement. It is not one of the cheapest hotels around but is definitely recommended.

This place is a hidden gem! It’s situated walking distance to nearly all of the local attractions and some really yummy restaurants. We stayed in the Bhuthorn room which suited us fine. It had everything we needed and was comfortable and clean.
Obviously being a lot smaller the Bhuthorn is able to provide a much more personalized experience. The staff were all extremely helpful and took the time to give us advice and tips on our time in Bangkok.
I would agree with other reviews, must try the Thai breakfast (they are delicious!) and if you happen to be around in the afternoon you will probably be treated to something delightful like mango and sticky rice or coconut ice cream.
Thank you very much to the staff at the Bhuthorn for making our trip to Bankok so enjoyable and we hope to return again one day! And for those of you visiting Bangkok I would strongly recommend the Bhuthorn!

We stayed in the Bhuthorn room overloking the square and loved every aspect of this delightful old house. The owner was really friendly and welcoming and served us breakfast on the second day, a delicious Thai feast. The first morning we had breakfast in the courtyard garden, again an array of four Thai dishes served in a tower of bento boxes. We found the location quiet and really interesting, in a conservation area with ancient dwellings. You must visit this gorgeous little place

The Bhuthorn is a small cosy B&B centrally located in the old part of Bangkok, at walking distance from the Royal Palace and other monuments/temples. It really looks like home and the staff are extremely kind and helpful. The rooms (just 3) are nice and different from one another, very cosy, with wooden floor and nice details. Our toilet was very small, but clean. Breakfast is delicious and you can choose between different options by ordering the evening before. At any time of the day you can order complimentary tea/coffee. I strongly recommend it under any point of view.
