We like boutique hotels for their intimacy and quiet. We stayed at the Praya Palazzo for 4 days on an extended tour of SE Asia and it was a wonderful experience at nearly every level. The building, the former villa of a thai royal who managed the countries finances in the 20s has been lovingly restored. The food was excellent. In a city filled with really great restaurants we ate there 2 of the 4 nights and had fabulous Thai dishes adapted from recipes developed for the royal family ( in truth most of the really good food came into existence in this way as the countries cuisine outside of the food stalls comes from the royal kitchens). The staff at the hotel, a mix of european hotel professionals and natives was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. their pride in the hotel was obvious and their proactive willingness to discuss what needed to be made better was refreshing in a hotel world made paranoid by TripAdvisor and others. if and when we go back we would stay no where else...
