“Thanks for the best assistance ever.”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Donald and his staff are amazing and the most helpful crew I have ever had the privilege of dealing with. I have stuffed them around no end, have to cancel and re-book my holiday on two separate occasions due to family illness. No problem for Donald, who happily altered and re-altered my booking and also recommended accommodation and trip advice for the rest of the country like Chang Mai. I could not speak more highly of Donald and this establishment. A++++++++ customer service.

Travel is interesting but tired. However, I'm happy that I chose the PN to be my rest place in this trip. I could always get the energy when I back to the hotel. Drank the ice tea, ate the good food, drank on the roof top bar... then, slept in my lovely room.
Travelers could always get the energy here to prepare for the trip next day!

this is a really lovely whacky hotel in a good area of bangkok for exploring main sights. (see photos for the funky retro decor). v.child friendly & helpful english-speaking staff made it easier still, & they had maps, advice etc. ( tho' beware of not allowing enough time to get to the airport if rush hour.. it was totally static for 2+ hrs mon. am & we had to drop taxi & find motorbike taxis which was a bit nerve-racking with big bags..)

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review ^ ^ Regarding the way back home, I hope it not too dangerous for you to took the motorbike with the bags! It is good idea to spare some more time for check in at the airport, normally from here takes 1 hour to get to the airport but in the rush hour 2 hours is good.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left our experience of the Phranakorn-Nornlen Guesthouse was amazing. The staff were very attentive and the whole vibe of PN was calm and tranquil.
It was nice to receive a little handmade gift set upon check-in - great touch! There were a number of little extras, from direction cards to hand to taxi drivers to a little packed breakfast to eat en route to the airport for our early morning flight to a signature PN CD in our room!
The quirky retro-vintage decor really made the place and we've taken a few ideas for our own home!
The roof-top terrace was a delight with fabulous views over the city of Bangkok, we dined up there on our last night and the food was delicious and very reasonably priced.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.
Thanks for a great stay!
Michelle & Kyle

Are you looking for alternative stay in BKK? Are you boring global standard hotels? Do you like arts and hand-crafts in lovely style? And are you interested in green and organic life style?
If "yes" you have more than 3, why not to book Phra-Nakorn Norn-Len Hotel?
Every corner of this B&B is photogenic. It's full of the delight of discovery. They have their own style. If you've seen Japanese movie "Always - Sunset on Third Street" or Thai movie "Fan chan", you can understand easily the world according to them. Artistic, nostalgic, exotic, warm feeling, girly, organic, and family friendly. Especially, food and beverages are fine.
The accommodation fee is not inexpensive for average B&B in BKK, but you can experience something out of ordinary, and probably it's priceless. Enjoy your alternative life in PN!

Whenever I travel to Bangkok this is the first place that I check for vacancies. And since I have been at the Phra-Nakorn Norn-Len for the first time in 2010 I have come back a couple of times. You know that this place is different from any other place in Bangkok the moment when you leave the busy streets of the old town, walk through the back alley and suddenly stand in this beautiful garden like reception and open area. It is almost like an oasis in this moloch of a city. Everything is just lovely and decorated with a lot of love for the detail. By then you should find your name on the blackboard they have with a a warm hello to all the new guests of the day.

The welcome is warm and friendly. While you sort out all the details you can refresh with a cold drink and are then guided to your room. Whenever I have stayed here the rooms have been immaculate clean. The decoration is just lovely. Oldschool and with lots of charm. If you're lucky you even get one of the rooms with small balconies.

Breakfast has always been special. Though I have to admit that since my first visit it has been adapted to the more European taste. Back in 2010 it was spicier and every day was a surprise with fresh ingredients from their garden on the rooftop terrace (if you have time you should definitely check it out).

Definitley do one of the tours that the Phra-Nakorn-Norn-Len organises. They get you to places that you won't find in your typical guide book. And enjoy one of the massages they offer. For a good price you get a proper thai massage. I have always enjoyed them.
