Baan Chantra
Ranked #72 of 728 Bangkok B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Baan Chantra is an oasis in the wonderful chaos that is Bangkok. We felt so welcomed--especially wonderful after a day and a half of exhausting travel. Kulthilda was so kind and very helpful, and the rest of the staff was great also. Our room was lovely and included a computer--so helpful. Breakfast was great. I am so glad that we were fairly close to major sites (for example, the Grand Palace) but not in the noise and frenetic KaoSan road area. I would highly recommend this small hotel.

Room Tip: We loved the first floor room right behind the lobby--so quiet and had its own outside patio area.

I stayed here one night between arrival to Bangkok and a flight the following day. The location was perfect for a one day stopover in Bangkok as it was very close to most of the main areas.

As another reviewer said, the rooms were a bit disappointing for the price range. The general atmosphere of the hotel was very nice and I enjoyed sitting in the commons areas, but the room itself was very simple and not particularly impressive. Regardless, I slept well without noticing any noise (I'm a light sleeper), and the staff seemed friendly although I didn't stay long enough to need to ask them for much.

Overall it was worth it for me to stay here for the location but I don't think I'd stay here again.

This small hotel is absolutely perfect for a Bangkok city Break. It offers respite from an amazing buzzing city.
The hotel is situated very close to the vibrant KaoSan Road.

Kulthilda and the staff at this family run hotel were extremely welcoming and attentive to all our requirements, which was great after a long exhaustive flight from the U.K.

We had arranged to meet an old friend and Kulthilda was very helpful in helping us make contact with him at his hotel in order that we could plan our get together.

Breakfast was freshly prepared and juices, tea and coffee were continually topped up and more food offered as required.

There is a bit of traffic noise from outside, but it is an authentic city hotel with heaps of character.

When leaving the hotel the staff always hailed our taxi and told the drivers our destinations and that we were to be traveling with the meter on , which as we discovered is no mean feat when hailing a taxi on the street and trying to get the meter on or negotiating a price.

The interior of the hotel is absolutely amazing it is truly authentic with the rest area on the the first floor furnished and built with Bamboo wood.

The rooms were very comfortable and spacious, again decorated in typical Thai design.

I had a slight problem with my follow on flight ticket from Bangkok and Kulthilda helped me obtain a copy of my boarding pass. Again excellent customer service.

We were leaving the hotel at 5:00 a.m. to go to the airport and a packed Breakfast was freshly prepared for us.
Kulthilda and her husband were up and ready and ensured that we were all prepared and ready to go on with our next leg of the Thai experience.

The Hospitality given the family at the Baan Chantra is the best I have came across in all my years of traveling .

I would thoroughly recommend this small hotel to anyone who is looking for a place to relax after a hectic day in the city.

I will and would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Bangkok. It is the perfect small hotel for a city break.

This hotel is more like a home. It is charming and beautiful, the owner Kulthilda is AMAZING. She is so gracious and helpful, recommending places to go and marking them on our map! We would definitely stay here again, we were sad to leave.
Highly recommended!!

Recently stayed at Baan Chantra for 4 days and LOVED everything about my time there. Kulthilda was the best hostess. She arranged to have us picked up at the airport which was greatly appreciated after 24 hours of travel. She helped us in getting around the city, tips on cabs, on what to see, on where to get great thai massages and she makes a great cup of coffee!
All in all a great place to start our 3 week trip to Thailand.

Very helpful and super-friendly staff. We felt at home from the first second. The location near kao San road (but not right in the middle of it) is just perfect. It's true the place doesn't come at a budget price but it's worth every Bath.

We booked this after reading other reviews, and were pleased that the positive reviews were wholly accurate. If you want to stay near the Kho San road but don't want the noise and grime, Baan Chantra is perfect. It's a beautiful traditonal wooden house about 5 mins walk from the backpacker streets round Kho San road, is very clean and well run by Kulthida and her family, who's home this is. There is a good choice of breakfasts, served in the libriary room, including good de-caf coffee-almost unheard of elswhere in thailand! The wifi worked well and there are also 2 apple macs available for internet access. We left early on last day so Kulthida had prepared a nice packed breakfast for us and helped us arrange a meter taxi to bus station. Cannot reccomend this place highly enough.
