We had an Amazing experience, very different feel to the standard BAngkok hotels. A historic building worthy of restoration situated on the calm side and end of Bangkok's Chaopraya River... A perfect escape from the usual hustle and bustle of the downtown or sukhumvit area. I guess suitable more for those looking for something unique, relaxing, close to the old city, grand palace and Wat Po.
What did we love? staff were great, Hung was a highlight very warm, outgoing and helpful! Food was exceptional, a little pricy compared to outside restaurants but similar to other hotels, definately worth it! Rooms had a lot of character adding to the feeling of living in an old restored mansion on the banks of the river....very cool :)
Worth mentioning and not to be missed is a klong tour on a local long tail boat....to see the contrasts, greenery and river lifestyle of the old Bangkok. We finished it with a trip to the Grand Palace, Wat Po and came back to the same area again the next day to visit Wat Arun.
All up a different side of Bangkok that we will revisit again , thanks for the wonderful stay :)
