Very nice B&b in an upcoming neighborhood on the west side of the river. You feel indeed very local there! Close to BTS, free tuktuk a day or you can walk through nice little streets. Small room, but clean, new and modern. Good breakfast with fresh fruit and fresh orange juice. If you don't like Asian, just ask for eggs. And like every one else is saying; great staff! We would definitely recommend to friends.

Room Tip: The rooms are small but super comfortabele.

We had a great stay at focal local. We stayed in the Living Nature room for three nights. The room was very clean and the A/C worked well. The staff was very helpful with tips and great advice for exploring Bkk. Each morning we had a very tasty breakfast prepared for us of a traditional thai variety that was typically a rice or noodle dish and then a plate of fruit. It was always done well and the service was excellent.
Each morning a complimentary tuk tuk ride provided to get us started on our day.
The only downside was there was some street noise, but I expect you'll get that anywhere in bangkok.

Thank you very much for your review. It's a great fuel to run our small Bed and Breakfast. We're glad you enjoyed your stay here. And we're sorry about the street noise, we've replaced the new windows with the thicker glass. It is a little better now. Hope we'll have a chance to accommodate you again next time. Kob Kun Krub :)

The room was small but very clean with a/c, fridge, tv and very good shower. Thai breakfasts were delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful, giving this small guesthouse a very pleasant atmosphere. It's location is a boat ride or skytrain ride away from most main attractions (it's a 5 minute tuk tuk ride to the boat pier or train station). This makes getting around a bit of a chore. However, the area around the guesthouse is great for seeing a different, more 'local' side of Bangkok away from the tourist hordes. There's great local restaurants and street food and also a night market just around the corner. We liked focal local so much that we've already booked to stay there again at the end of our travels around South east Asia

We loved the local area, market, vibe and especially the detail of the rooms. We stayed our first and last night in Thailand here, in the Siamese and the Simply Gorgeous. Even though we arrived and left in the wee hours the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Wishing we had stayed a few more nights at the beginning or end of our trip here. Clean, cute and excellent ac to beat the heat!

My sister and i spent 4 night's here in May and loved it, Karen and staff we always smiling and happy. The breakfast they provided us with was delicious and on the days we were out early they made a packed lunch for us. We had the siamese room and thought it would be noisey because you are right over the street but it was so quiet. The Air con was wonderful, you almost forgot how hot it was outside. Wifi was good also, i don't have a bad thing to say about this little place. Everything was fantastic
