Many other reviews have sung the praises of Phranakorn-Nornlen's original and wonderfully funky decor, their excellent breakfasts, their internet access, the neighborhood, etc. and I would agree with every positive thing said about all of that.
I want to particularly rave about the amazing service. Five of us stayed here in April 2008. My mother and I had been traveling for a couple of weeks, and my husband and children were arriving to surprise my mother on her birthday. Last-minute travel delays for them meant I had to email the PN staff and explain why only two people rather than five would be checking in at first, and I didn't want anyone to spoil the surprise by asking about the others. The staff was amazing - notes on the reception desk alerted everyone, no one said a thing to spoil the surprise, and they offered to arrange a van so I could go back to the airport and pick up the rest of my family late at night. They asked if we wanted flowers or cake or anything else to help celebrate, and they arranged all of this, plus massages for us. When we wanted to get food from a hard-to-find restaurant, they called the restaurant to get information and help us place an order, arranged a cab to get us there, and when we brought all the food back, they rushed to bring out plates and utensils so we could eat in style. When I had a problem with my ATM card, they helped me call my bank at home to take care of it.
Every bit of this wonderful service was provided with a smile. We left feeling well taken care of, and we would return again without hesitation.
(And of all the hotels we stayed in Southeast Asia, PN had the best showers anywhere!!!)
