“A guesthouse with tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

A very nice guesthouse with friendly staff and unique room decor. I especially love the yard where the breakfast is served, giving me the sense of tranquility, which is a huge contrast to the bustling Bangkok city.

Room Tip: Note that the hotel has no TV in their rooms.

Dear "libra84",

Thank you so much for your time write us this review : )
The yard is called "SALA" in Thai language, we would like guests to use this space and feel like stay at home.
We don't have the TV at the room because we want guests to really rest and don't want TV disturb you and distract you from your partner.

Hope to see you again next time.
Have a slow life.

Absolutely the best guesthouse / hotel I have ever visited! THis place is unique: with the cool vintage decoration, it feels like visiting a vintage museum. Food here is very good and the people who work here are all really really nice. They had a complimentary New Years dinner, which was really good. Great view from the roof top terrace. Really relaxed and nice atmosphere. A must place for people travelling with kids. We have booked tree more nights in February. Can't wait being back here!

PN is an hotel that gives you a sense of peace and a homey feeling from the first moment.
each room is designed in a different and a unique style. the ground floor, where breakfast is served, looks like a small magical yard that you would like to have at home.
we visited PN with 2 children that felt completely comfortable and loved to stay there every minute.
in the upper floor located the restaurant where you can check out the view of the whole area, and you can find small and quiet corners to sit and relax - like you can find in each floor.
the stuff is mostly young and eagers to help in everything you need - with a constant smile on their face.
the food is simple but delicious.
we warmly recommend PN. it is a place that is nice to go back to, specially after a long day in the busy and crowded Bangkok.
one last thing - the location of the hotel is a bit hidden, so recommend to print a map for the taxi driver, otherwise you can find yourself driving in circles for couple of times around the block like we did.

Great place ! Good location (Express boat on the Chao Praya within 10 mins walk, food market at 2 mins), peaceful, nicely decorated, excellent with kids.

Will go back for sure with my family.
Worth the price.

I can only add to all of the positive comments posted by other guests. This guesthouse was always a pleasant place to return to after long days of sightseeing. The staff is so very friendly and helpful, the rooms are unique and clean, and the patio area is the best place of all of our hotels in Thailand. You'll love the carefully prepared breakfasts while you listen to birds singing along to the gentle Thai music playing in the background. The guests are not exclusively European, which makes a nice mix of visitors. Highly recommended.

Visited with family for 2 nights in December. Usually my mum and I aren't fans of the city but after our first night at Phranakorn Nonlen we immediately wished we'd booked longer. The rooms were comfy and quirky with really nice design touches.

The guesthouse has so much character and the staff are fantastically helpful. Whatever you are planning to do in the city be sure to pop in and chat to the staff at reception before you leave - they have thought of everything and have pre-prepared Thai language cards with the names of tourist sites and directions to the hotel for you to show the taxi drivers. Useful as you will probably need to get taxis into the town for sightseeing.

Breakfast was delicious and the homemade juices were a lovely touch. The staff even sent us off with a little packed breakfast when we left for our early flight in the morning. Just another example of the really personal service that the guesthouse provides. Be sure to pop up to the rooftop bar for a cocktail before you leave. The perfect way to relax after a busy day in the city!

A great base for exploring the city. Would stay again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for taking your time write us the review. It is like a bonus when we heard that you had a nice stay with us. We are located in the old Bangkok area which you can easily explore the city by public transport. River boat is very interesting with the view and no traffic. We understand that some guests doesn't have much information about the area so the staff always taking care of the details and make sure that your trip will be smooth.

Hope to see you again next time if you have a chance to come back to Bangkok.
Have a slow life.

We arrived at 1AM after a day and a half flight from Boston; a driver picked us up and when he turned into a dark alley we were surprised! We were given a welcome drink and taken to a room with a large, comfortable bed. In the morning, we were delighted to see the open area breakfast room where delicious lattes were served, along with the choice of a Thai or western breakfast. We loved the place -- so authenthically Thai, not like staying at a western-style hotel at all! It was easy enough to get to the places we wanted to visit in Bangkok and truly a respite from all the chaos of the city! At night we enjoyed the rooftop restaurant, (though there weren't too many choices for dinner). Very slow pace! I had my first Thai massage there, it was an incredible experience. Highly recommend this place!

Dear Guests,

Thank you so much for your review : ) It is good to hear that you had a good time with us.
It seem hard to get here at the first time because we are hiding in the small street but the street actually well-know by others. So if you have our address/map and the phone number, it every easy to come.
Regarding the rooftop restaurant, we just opened and still in the process of creating the new menu, hope when you come next time and try our varieties dishes.
After the long trip, having a massage is one of the best activities here, nice to hear that you like it.

Hope to welcome you back again.
Have a slow life.
