Phra-Nakorn is super friendlyby PN guests :) on 01/18/14
We started our 3-week tour of Southeast Asia at the Pra-Nakorn and it set the right tone for our trip. It's a full-service, but no-frills B&B in the heart of the old quarter of Bangkok within walking distance of one of the main ferry stations travelling up & down the river. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The food was quite good (and we're picky about quality, although we'll eat anything). The restaurant/terrace at the top of the Phra-Nakorn was a lovely setting. They seem to really care about their guests' comfort and well-being without being overly solicitous, which was the case in some of the other places we stayed at.
The only advice we have for the Phra-Nakorn, which has nothing to do with the B&B itself is to provide a tip sheet on common scams in Bangkok. We discovered too late that there are rather sophisticated fraudster networks in Bangkok preying on unsuspecting tourists -- and we're pretty well travelled.
All in all, we unreservedly recommend the Phra-Nakorn. Although we didn't travel with children, many of the other guests were younger than us and had young kids with them. The Phra-Nakorn was well set up to keep them amused.
