If you're looking for a nice place to stay in Bangkok, or searching for a Bangkok Boutique Hotel, there are so many choices that it may be hard for you to decide among them. If your focus is not big chain hotels, but smaller, charming, vintage, kids friendly or “green” hotels that offer unique decor, delicious breakfast and attentive services, as well as a good value, Phranakorn Nornlen is an option you should consider. We are a small hotel situated within the Old Bangkok district, near the Grand Palace, Reclining Buddha, Khaosan Road, China Town and the river shuttle stop at Thewet Pier.

A hidden gem

The Phra-Nakorn Norn-Len is a little gem of a vintage guest house in Old Bangkok. From the personalised chalkboard welcoming all new guests by name to the fresh juice on arrival it's the small touches that make this place special. It has a lovely garden where you can enjoy lunch or breakfast and also a roof terrace complete with its own herb garden and pet rabbits. It also serves really good coffee which appears to be very rare in Thailand.
It's located away from the main hustle bustle of central Bangkok but the river taxi pier is only a short walk away and is the most pleasant way to travel around Bangkok anyway. Even if you get a bit lost we found two really nice temples to visit within walking distance that we had pretty much to ourselves.
The rooms are quirky and come complete with hand made toiletries and a daily supply of Thai tea. You will get some mosquitoes (it was rainy season) but there was always a supply of free hand made natural repellant to use. We bought some from their shop and this lasted us through our entire trip and was much nicer to use than the usual DEET products.
I recommend you pay the extra for an airport pick up especially after a long flight. Once you arrive you get given a map with directions in Thai you can show taxi drivers as this helps them find the place. The staff are all really helpful in planning your trip, booking onward travel etc.
I'm sure you will find cheaper places to stay but none will be as quirky or charming as here.
