I decided on staying at the Bhuthorn after reading all the great reviews and wanting to stay in a more authentic place versus a big hotel. Also, we wanted to be close to the major sights around Old Town. One of the main reasons I booked here was because of all the rave reviews on Chitlada, the owner and how helpful she was. Well, we were there 4 days and never saw Chitlada once, which was very disappointing. I even inquired about her whereabouts and was told she would show up the next day..which she didn't. Although the staff was nice, I felt their English was limited which didn't allow us to really get a lot of advice/insights. So, if you are counting on Chitlada to be there, you may want to doublecheck on that.
Overall, the place was very quaint and we stayed in the Nara room, which was nice and roomy. I would say that because of the street noise, it can get quite noisy, so bring a pair of earplugs.
I would pass on the airport pickup which is around $40. When I asked about the AOT pickup versus a cab, I was told that AOT knows how to get to the inn. Well, our London Cab didn't know how to get the inn and had to call. I think the Inn needs to draft better directions to the location....maybe give drivers directions to the main interection or something. We took a cab back to the aiport and it was less than 400 baht.
We enjoyed our stay there, but wish we would have met the hostess.
