Reviewed 10 August 2009

We stayed at the PN as well in the beginning of our 4-week-trip through Thailand as in the end. Our boys, aged 5 and 9 loved to be there. And so did we. Shortly after arrival we could experience that the PN ist not only beautiful and unique in style, but also very effective in trouble shooting. I mixed up my rucksack at Bangkok Aiport. As the wrong one was 100% same style I realized what happened when I startet to unpack the Rucksack. The Staff did an absolutely brilliant job - the managed do get my Rucksack (without Destination label!) back and bring the other one to it´s owner. I didn´t have to move an inch for that. I want to say thanks again, because ist wouldn´t have been a nice start otherwise.

Also special thanks to Noo - she´s really in our hearts, an we loved to walk around with her, getting so much interesting information, having many loughs, happy kids (as they really, really like her) and wonderful impressions!

Greetings from Vienna!

What a fantastic place. If you're after a 5 star hotel this is not the place. If you're after something personal, home like feel, relaxing place and the most friendly people you will ever come across this is the place for you. After travelling for 3 weeks (Novotel Phuket, Holiday Inn and Phi Phi Village) this was a really nice end to our holiday. The kids (3yo and 5yo) absolutely loved it (and so did we). Nice garden for the kids to play in while we could just sit back and relax. Very central to everything. When you do go there ask for Tukta to take you on a tour - She is the most lovely lady that will show you around Bangkok (part of the service!) We gave her a 100baht tip and she wouldnt accept it - She wanted the tip to go to the hotel - That shows you how honets these people are... I cannot say enough about this absolutely awsome place. Enjoy it.

Having chosen to stay at the PN from reading other trip advisor reviews I was certainly not disappointed. We had arranged an airport transfer with them and our driver waited to collect us from Bangkok airport even though we were an hour and a half later than planned and couldn't have been nicer - buying us bottles of water -v welcome after our long journey and endless queues through passport control! I have never encountered such friendly and helpful staff who made our stay a pleasure and could not do enough for us. They gave us advice both on Bangkok and helped us arrange our onward travels in Thailand and hotel bookings. The courtyard and rooftop terrace are both beautiful and in such contrast to the (enjoyable!) madness of Bangkok. The rooms are immaculate, comfortable, with aircon and charming with their individual hand painted walls - no they don't have all the additional amenities of a 4 star hotel but thats not what its about. Free wifi, free use of iMacs, lovely breakfasts ..... I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Stayed here with my wife for two nights after arrival in Bangkok. The hotel is about 20 min. walk to Khao San Road.
The whole concept of the hotel -a quiet relaxed getaway from hectic Bangkok- is done very well and you will find this throughout the whole hotel.
Rooms are basic, but spacious and clean (as was the whole hotel). Mattress in our room was quite hard, but we sleept very well. We loved the CD player with three CD's for morning / afternoon / Nighttime.
The little courtyard / dining room is very relaxing and offers free use of computers / internet. The meals they serve here are great! Not a lot of choice, but all very tasty authentic Thai meals. All ingredients come from their roof garden.

Staff was also very friendly and helpfull. All in all a great hotel for us.
If you expect Hilton luxury, don't go here, because you will not find it at Phranakorn. If you want to relax and understand what this hotel is about, you will have a great time here!

This Oasis in chaotic Bangkok is a must stay. Every details was paid attention from your arrival from the airport to your departure!
The hotel (it looks more like a close community) is very well located just north of the old city and is near to top attractions or you can take a very cheap taxi. It is located on a soi (backstreet) so be sure to print their map to hand it out to the taxi driver. Once you arrived, you'll see how everything is warm, friendly on a human-scale environment. Everything is nicely decorated.
The staff is very informative, friendly, and will try to accommodate you with everything they can.
The room is just the right size. We had a private balcony with a nice view of the backyard. The bed was very comfortable, with all the pillows too XD.
The bathroom is original, i love the big straight down shower head. I love how all the decorations and design are all hand-made.
If you have kids, the place is perfect too as they have a lot of spaces for them. They also have a place for thai massage that I haven't tried. I did however had a taste of their Pad-Thai and it was the best one I have ever tried! Their breakfast is a must too! Everything is good and organic. The price is really low for what they are offering!

This hotel was so nice. From the people, to the food, to the atmosphere, it was just what we needed. Even though Bangkok has much to offer, we looked forward to returning to the hotel each night. AND, breakfast is AMAZING! So good! I looked forward to it each day.

We also went on a walking tour with Nuu, who was SO NICE! It was free and she introduced us to a lot of Thai things that we never would have seen before.

The people here are unparalleled. Honestly, I can't say enough. If you are looking for a relaxing place that is just the retreat you're looking for from Bangkok's craziness, this is the place for you.

There was one thing we had a problem with though, which was minor. The hotel IS smaller, and thus, not as well known as the bigger hotels, so finding a Tuk-tuk or cab to take you there is sometimes difficult. Other than that, 5 stars all around.
