Feung Nakorn Balcony Rooms & Cafe
Ranked #14 of 710 Bangkok B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 June 2011

My boyfriend and I booked our stay here when visiting Bangkok this May and could not find a negative thing about our stay. Near the Ko San road area of Old City but tucked away in a quiet road the location was brilliant for our itinerary, although the taxi's did not know where it was the hotel provide you with a pocket handy map to guide them!

Rooms were spacious and clean with complimentary toiletries and water, breakfast was lovely and with hearty portions. The hotel also offers day tours for attractions in and around Bangkok for reasonable prices and very well organised. Whilst staying here my boyfriend had an accident and hurt his ankle, Alec and his staff were very helpful helping us reorganise flights we had missed and were generally very attentive to our needs.

We would like to say thank you to Alec and his team for making our stay so lovely and stress free given the accident and for being so friendly and helpful! Keep up the good work.

Amy and Rob :)

Nice, clean, new place just off the tourist areas but near the Royal Palace. Room large, very clean. No decor thrills, but ok. Look for the street vendor on the other side of the street for the best food in Thailand - no English though, but sign language helps :) One con - taxi drivers usually don't know where the hotel is. If you have problems, direct them to the Royal Palace or Wat Pho and give directions (turn left, etc) from there.

good service and clean. located in the old town. you have to walk a bit or take a tuk tuk to go to the fun area. but it's very close to the main monuments and attractions.

Room Tip: go if you want quiet and fun

Feung Nakorn balcony is an excellent option for the budget traveler. The location can’t be beat – from the hotel, it is a short walk to the Royal Palace, Wat Pho, the river, various other temples, and the Bangkok flower market. Also, it is about a 10-15 minute walk to the bars and craziness of Khao San Road (the major backpacker party street in BKK).

The rooms are quite basic, but all the necessary components are there for comfort: A/C, a flatscreen tv, a room safe, showers with hot water, an armoire, a mini-fridge, etc. Also, the beds are very comfortable and there is free wi-fi.

The hotel building itself is not beautiful, per se, but the courtyard full of lush greenery and the fountain is a nice oasis during the day and night. The bar area near the koi pond also feels very luxurious and the second floor Café in the building facing the street is a wonderful, air-conditioned oasis with Lavazza coffee drinks!

My friend and I were also very happy with the food coming out of the kitchen; the prices were super-reasonable for hotel food and everything we ordered was really delicious (especially the Tom yum soups!).

The staff really went out of their way to provide great service, but in an unobtrusive way. For example, when we went to sit by the koi pond at night, the manager sent someone over to plug in a fan to cool us off right away! When we sat down for dinner, another staffer placed a citronella candle near our table to fend off bugs. The staff was also super-accommodating any requests that we had.

The only possible downside to staying at the Feung Nakorn Balcony is that it is not located on a major hotel strip, so some taxi drivers have a difficult time finding it. The owners of Feung Nakorn are well aware of this, which is why they have little hotel locator cards available for their guests. Really, all people have to do is to tell taxis and tuk-tuks that Feung Nakorn Balcony is right across the street from Wat (Temple) Ratchabophit. Even so, some taxi drivers might have some trouble finding it.

One additional little quirk is that the shower does not have a “lip” to catch the water, although the shower curtain helps. This means that the water goes right onto the bathroom floor. However, there was not water drainage problem, but having a some way to contain the water from the shower would have been nice.

Overall, though, I would highly recommend the Feung Nakorn balcony not only to budget travelers, but for those seeking a welcoming and lovely little oasis close to some of the major tourist attractions in Bangkok.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is perfect for those of us that like to walk. As the other reviewers stated, we were minutes from the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, and Khao San Road. The staff were very friendly and helpful with directions, maps, as well as arranging transportation away from the area. It's a bit difficult to get here using public transportation but that would be the same with any place in the heart of Old Bangkok. Another plus was that the wi-fi signal in my room was as good as any I've encountered at a hotel. I was actually in range of two separate routers.

This hotel is great value and only 10 minutes walk to the river, 5 to the grand palace and 20 (max) to ko san road. The rooms were cleaned every day, and had free internet (1 computer by the front desk).
There were lots of noisey critters (never did find out what they were) making a racket every night though.

Very clean, butiful rooms and garden, friendly staff, not far from Wat Pho, Khao San Road etc. The breakfast was a bit boaring but OK.
