Portico 21 is a small family-run boutique hotel just around the corner from the Tae Pae Gate and the old city wall.
The hotel looked quite new and well maintained. Somehow, it does not feel like I was in a hotel but in someone’s home.
I think that is not too far from the truth.
I stayed in the deluxe twin room for 3 nights. A standard breakfast set (eggs, bacon, breads, fruit...etc) is included in the price of the room.
They also prove free wifi thought I had some difficulties connecting to it for the first 2 days.
The location is great. It is just 50 meters from the main road. You are just 3 minutes to shops and restaurants and yet you are spare the noise from the cars and bikes.
The night bazaar is within walking distance (12- 15 min).
The staffs were really helpful. There was this young chap (with curly hair) who tried his best to help us even though he may not be very conversant in English.
The laundry is quite cheap at only 35bahts/ kilogram (US$1.10?).
I enjoyed my stay there. If there were any minor inconvenience, that will be the lack of an elevator.
