What a gem! This is a great place to stay for independent travelers or those who want to get away from the Khao San or Silom (Business) area. In a local neighborhood with a fun morning market. Love being away from the touristy side of Bangkok but also just a ten minute ride to the sky train or boat landings (30-40 baht trip). Around 60 baht from Silom at night by taxi. The hotel organizes (and pays) for your trip to the sky train or boat landing so you just need to pay on your way back.
Most of all the hospitality here is amazing! Wonderful service and just so friendly. The breakfasts were great - western or Thai with freshly squeezed juice, coffee and fruit.
Beautiful rooms that are so stylish and well done! Loved it so much!
It is located in a local neighborhood so it may be a bit noisy at times, but where in Bangkok is quiet???
