Reviewed 8 February 2014

My wife and I stayed here for four nights on our first trip to Bangkok and were extremely happy with our choice. Tucked away in a quiet canal-side location the Lamphu Tree House was a wonderful retreat at the end of each day's sight seeing and close to some great restaurants for a memorable evening meal. Our room was clean, quiet, comfortable and well appointed for the price. The pool area was a great place to relax for a couple of hours before heading back out into the mayhem! The complimentary breakfasts were excellent as was the evening meal we had there. All of the staff we had contact with were extremely friendly and helpful.

A tip for travellers while demonstrations continue - we had difficulty getting taxis to take us back to the hotel if it meant navigating around the Democracy Monument, which is quite nearby. Nevertheless, we would not bother looking for anywhere else to stay in Bangkok!!

Can't argue with any previous reviewers! They are right in what they say about the Lamphu Tree House, it is a great place to stay in mad Bangkok, close to the Grand Palace, the river but in a quiet spot with great views over the city from the top floor of the main hotel where we were. We went for a more expensive room but it was lovely, with a very comfy bed and a great bathroom! Breakfast was plentiful, we ate there every evening and found the food excellent and not expensive. The staff and service were great too. All in all a lovely place which we are glad we found and would recommend to anyone.

And yes, taxi drivers find it very hard to find! Even with the printed directions!

the lamphu tree house is an extremely friendly place to stay, the reception area is comfortable and the small pool a definite asset. Hard to find but worth the effort. The rooms are a little tatty but not enough to be a problem and the welcome and atmosphere are outstanding.

We booked Lamphu on Trip Advisor's recommendation, and were glad we did! It was a bit more than we were planning to spend (although our fault for travelling at peak season), but I would say it is well worth it for guaranteed peace of mind, especially as your first port of call in Thailand.

Great location, within a short walk to many attractions (and plenty of tuk tuks passing nearby), but being next to the canal it was very peaceful. Swimming pool was a lovely addition!

Rooms were nicely decorated, electronic safes were gratefully appreciated, air con brilliant. Wifi covered the rooms really well too, which was a bonus.

Breakfast was really nice; plenty of options. We especially liked the Thai food for breakfast and the fresh fruit.

Staff were very helpful, and we were grateful to be able to stick our evening beers on the room tab and enjoy the moment.

Would stay here again next time I visit Bangkok, and will recommend to friends and family!

I've stayed here a number of times now after a recommendation from a friend 4 years ago - not to be confused with a hotel with a similar name smack in the middle of Khao San road, the Lamphu Tree is easily my favourite hotel in the world. Although not every always works as it should and there is the occasional whiff from the canal (you get this everywhere in Bangkok - I even smelt it at the Moon Bar 61 stories up in the Banyan Tree hotel!), the staff and the peaceful atmosphere at this hotel make up for everything.

I would describe this as a mid price (for Thailand - cheap for the UK) boutique hotel with excellent, cheerful and helpful staff who always provide a warm welcome. Clean, homely and a lovely pool area to cool off after the mania of Bangkok! Food is delicious and staff are more than happy to accommodate 'western' style requests (recommended with the Tom Yum soup - amazing but blows your head off!). REALLY comfy big beds and great sized rooms. The only left to mention is.....BANANA PANCAKES!! Oh Lord I could eat these allllllll day! Homemade and perfect with a little drizzle of maple syrup - I forced 3 down on my last morning just so I could savour the taste during our long flight home!

One word of advice - print off the map as suggested when you book. Taxi drivers don't always know where it is. When you get there, pick up the Thai directions from reception and keep them in your pocket to show Taxi/Tuk Tuk drivers.

Hope you all enjoy as much as I always have...I miss the place already :-(

Room Tip: Choose a room in the main building if you can - closer to restaurant and pool

Bangkok I am sure has bigger and better places, but if you are looking for a value place, with a great ambience, quiet, on the banks of a canal within walking distance or a short tuk tuk to all the big temples etc, then this is your place. the rooms are not large, but comfortable and lovely with small balconies. The neighborhood is very safe, and the moon over bangkok is a notable experience. The price includes a really good full breakfast, and the staff takes really good care of you. Everybody was attentive and helpful, the coffee was exquisite (which is really appreciated when you stumble down at 600am because you are still on another time zone). we even ended up kind of bumbling into taking a tour to the bridge over the river Kwai and the tiger temple which was done well with great value through this hotel. Those in the know will check out the tiger temple before they go, but it was a really amazing experience. you don't really need more then this in bangkok ! My kudos to all the staff.

Well located for exploring the old town, temples and riverside areas. Also the koh San road can be reached on foot for evening beers. However it is far enough away from koh San to be a peaceful place to return too after a days sight seeing. My main problem with this hotel was that our "deluxe" room was very small and the bathroom was in need of a make over. The shower only ever reached luke warm temperature and the bathroom flooded when you had
a shower. It was not what I would call "deluxe" however the staff here were nice and we ate food in the restaurant one night which was good value.
