We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of November. It was just what we wanted. Small, friendly, personal and clean. Karan and all the other staff we saw were all very friendly and helpful. Karan told us where we could get a meal when we arrived quite late the first night. It was 5 mins walk away and was a local eating place. We had the best Thai meal from any restaurant we had when in Bangkok there. It was not fancy or posh but the food was delicious!
At Focal Local we had the Thai breakfasts which were lovely. The room we stayed in was individual. They are all decorated differently. We stayed in Siamese which is at the front. We liked being able to hear the local way of life outside and it did not stop us sleeping well. One night there was a huge thunderstorm which had us looking out the window at 2am! The ladies over the road outside the shop started cooking every morning about 6am for the locals to buy their breakfast. It was all fascinating. We will be going back in 2013.
