We stayed 2 nights here at the tail-end of a week-long Bangkok vacation, and it was the perfect way to end it.
Location-wise, it's walking distance from the top tourist attractions in the city: the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the Grand Palace, saving you the hassle of negotiating with tuktuk and cab drivers who try to rip you off. It's also right across Wat Arun, which is just a ferry ride away.
The View of Wat Arun across the river at night will make you not want to leave your room - but make sure to also have sunset cocktails at the rooftop lounge area - bring snacks and a bottle of wine or two. Unforgettable!
The rooms are quirkily themed (we stayed in the 3 PM restaurant room which had frying pans and woks hung up on the wall) and sufficiently large. You might have problems with ants due to the location of the place and the building's age, but that really just comes with the ambience. The view of Wat Arun more than makes up for it.
The innkeeper Golf and his brothers and family were absolutely attentive and genuinely wanted to ensure that we had a great stay - warning us about temple and taxi scams and recommending places we wanted to go to. The lobby restaurant served excellent Thai food for breakfast and diner as well.
This was definitely a different hotel experience - I almost don't want to write this perfect review because I don't want other people to discover Inn a Day! But that would be doing the owners a disservice.
