My husband and i stayed at focal local for part of our time in bangkok. The only reason we did not stay the whole time was because it was booked! This B&B is located in a more residential part of the city, so it really gives you an opportunity to taste the food and experience the people. It is short tuk tuk ride from the BTS, or a short walk to the river where a boat can easily taxi you up to the sights. There is also a bus stop almost across the street.
Karan is the owner and makes a delicious breakfast! He is also incredibly helpful in regards to getting around, things to see, etc! and speaks great english which was just so helpful and meaningful in regards to navigating the city. it was fun coming back to focal local and karan would be excited to hear about our day and what we did and experienced. Karan and his staff are the biggest part of what makes this such a wonderful place to stay.
There is really no where else anyone should stay while in bangkok!!!!!!
