Phranakorn-Nornlen Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I really liked this place in the old Bangkok. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's very quiet and I loved the decoration, old tv , radio, and antiquities. Breakfast was fine, very clean room with bright colors and original bathroom. In the morning I was woke up but nice music from the patio. I definitely recommend Pra-Nakorn. A seven eleven is close, the wet pier 10 min by walk and Kao San 20. The only negative aspect is all the mosquitoes at night in the patio.

Room Tip: Room 301 faces a big golden Buddah.

Dear "amir b",

Thank you so much for your review : ) Nice to hear that you had a good time with us.
Staff are friendly and also guests are nice, we are like a same family.
Regarding the mosquitoes, as we in the tropical zone, it hard to get rid off them. However we provided our homemade insect repellent with non-chemical and also safe for kids.

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

This hidden gem of a hotel is a must stay for any families travelling to Bangkok. The entrance is down an unremarkable side street but when you get in you arrive in a courtyard with the most intriguing (yes, intriguing!) decor and a huge deck where children can play and you can simply lounge around. The rooms are all individually painted - our two interconnecting rooms had a fish motif going on and each floor / landing just is well...different! I'm really trying not to write a spoiler here as I was sold by their great website and when you see the real thing it's even better...and just wait until you go up to the rooftop restaurant. There's a further remarkable surprise in store for you there too! Just around the corner is a lovely plant market en route to a pier where you can catch a river bus to the Wats. Great staff, simple but good food, good vibe - would fit in perfectly in Cornwall. Thank God it's not commanding the same sort of prices!

Maybe a little more expansive than low budgets, but that is worth it!
Original, peacefull, refreshing, with an excellent cook and an adorable welcome, you cannot be unhappy to find youself in this place.
If you go with chidren, you will be even better welcomed.
Just a remark: mattress are a little tough.

Every corner of Phra-Nakorn Norn-Len has a pleasant surprised and very attentive to people's need, overall concept of the space is amiable. The price is affordable for all (which really worth a praise!)
A must visit. Definitely will go back again!

We loved this hotel. It is quirky but friendly and peaceful. It's not 5 star but then what do you expect for the price? We loved the breakfast and the roof terrace has great views. We never had a problem with taxi drivers finding it especially if you have a map with you.

it's a paradise place in bangkok that you can really enjoy your slow life. the hotel is just on the neighborhood housing area, from outside it is a normal just, but once you step in, it totally change your mind. the decor was awesome, the breakfast was super good with organic vegetarian. we just spend all day long staying at the hotel to escape from the busy city, reading, massaging, drinking. it just make you feel refreshing and clear your mind. it a totally different experience if you guys choose Phra-Nakorn Norn-len hotel as your hotel to stay. definitely will come back and stay in this hotel again.

Nice and clean room, unfortunately at 3rd floor and no lift. We found the bathroom too Spartan for our taste.Very good breakfast in the entry garden hall. Beautiful view from the terrace on the roof. No TV but access to internet in the hall.

Dear "Bogdan S",

Thank you so much for your review : )
We just a small hotel which concern the environment, we have no elevator, no television and no refrigerator in the room, Not only for the the energy but also for the environment. However we have a share refrigerator for you to use each floor, the computer with free WiFi access.
Sometime just lay down at the "Sa-la" (the lobby terrace) and listen to the birds song is could be a good day.

We hope to see you again next time.
