Lamphu tree house could not have been more perfect. Arriving midday after a long flight from London, and a very long taxi ride from the Bangkok airport, we were greeted with local tea and smiles. The reception team was warm and welcoming, and mentioned that they had upgraded us to a penthouse suite for the first night. What a treat! An amazing bathroom with jet jacuzzi, a wrap around balcony. It was really special. Unfortunately, we had to move to our original room the next night, but it was still very nice. The regular rooms in the main building are simple, but clean and comfortable. We still had a fridge and TV, as well as a safe.

But the best part about this place was the location and the common space. It is located on a canal and therefore feels peaceful even though you are very close to all the action. It's an easy walk to the famous backpacker street, as well as many good restaurants and bars. We ended up walking home from the royal palace one evening and although it took us about 45 minutes, it was a nice walk along the river and we always felt safe. In addition, the common space at the hotel was ideal. Nice couches and chairs for lounging. A pool that looked very inviting. And a dining room with an outdoor courtyard - perfect for breakfast which was included in our room rate.

Stayed here for three nights in December 2013. We were delighted we had chosen the Lamphu Tree House, it was close enough to walk to the busy streets around Khao San Road and the river area. Another advantage was it was situated on a klong and we could take the boat into Central Bangkok, the pier being just a 10 minute walk from the hotel. As for the hotel the staff are friendly and helpful, the buffet breakfast was ample and the rooms although not modern were clean and
well maintained. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this accomodation, especially if you are looking for a smaller Thai style hotel with a relaxing atmosphere.

I just returned from a trip to Thailand. Lamphu Tree House was the first hotel we stayed at in Bangkok for 2 nights. I found the hotel while searching for an affordable place to say on Agoda/booking/Asia web direct.com I was not upset with my choice to stay but there were a few things that might be helpful for other travelers.

The taxi driver from the airport pretty much refused to drive us to the hotel and instead took us to a boat taxi pier that was quite far from the hotel. This might not happen to everyone, but definitely contact the hotel to arrange transportation for you from the airport. We arranged the transportation to the airport on our way out of Bangkok with Lamphu Tree and that was very good.

When we finally arrived at the hotel, it was very charming. If we were staying again, we would stay in the main building. Although we didn't see the rooms in the main building, the second building was a bit of a little walk from the main building down a little bit of a sketchy alley. But the room was nice it worked well for two days.

We didn't really walk around the area very much but we were able to walk to Kaoh San Road (the bar/tourist street - backpacker area) from the hotel. We would not visit Kaoh San Road again if we were to go back. Way too crowded and noisy. I think some other tourist attractions were in the area of the hotel. But it wasn't in the nicest area of town. Tuk Tuk and taxis are easy to catch to get anywhere else, so don't sweat it.

Finally, breakfast was really yummy. Definitely the best breakfast we had at a hotel on our entire trip around Thailand and Cambodia.

A clean welcoming boutique hotel. Great location for Khao San rd and old city. Staff are very pleasant and price is excellent. Banana pancakes for breakfast are awesome. Hot water and showers could be better.

Room Tip: Lift is odd as still have to use some stairs. Only stayed in main building so not sure about annex

The Lamphu Tree House lies next to a canal and outside the Khao San Road, therefore you can have quiet nights. They have a beautiful restaurant with plants and also a pool. The rooms are very thai and cosy. The breakfast buffet is big and offers something for everyone.
If you only want to visit Bangkok to go shopping, then you should not choose Lamphu Tree House (because there is no near stop of the Skytrain or Metro) but otherwise, it is the best choice!
