Focal Local is a relatively small B&B in the Thonburi District of Bangkok, out of the way of tourists, but quite well placed if you wish to get a glimpse of the Thai way of life. It's owner and manager, Karan is a young Thai, who is quite willing to take an active part in making your stay a remarkable one: he can arrange more or less anyhing from fetching a tuk-tuk for you or booking restaurants to getting a doctor. He also prepares the breakfast each morning, each morning something different, and invariably something specifically Thai.
The rooms are each furnished individually with a different style and they all offer a comfortable stay. You have all the basics of an excellent stay, you'll get to appreciate the airco, hot water and Wi-Fi after a few day's stay in Thailand. Do not expect luxury, this is a B&B after all, but the warm and personal service of Karan and his team make up for the missing spa, pool or whatever you'd fancy in an international hotel chain. We'd go back any time.
