Family friendly vintage guest house in Old Bangkok
We loved our stay at Phra-Nakorn and missed it as soon as we left! The staff couldn't have been kinder and we would particularly like to mention 'Fon' and how much she helped us with all our questions and directions, nothing was too much trouble. We didn't travel with children but this is a very family friendly place to stay with a children's area and nice safe surroundings. The rooms were cute, quirky and colourful. I always enjoyed coming back here after being in Bangkok which speaks volumes as we actually chose to stay here at night time instead of going out. Food was cheap and delicious! About a 15/20 minute walk to Koh San Road which was easy to get to. I couldn't recommend this place enough. It was lovely to experience 'slow life' :)
In the other part of the world we take 4-5 star hotels, but in Bangkok I
wanted to try a different style. We stayed 6nights here, the staff is
very nice, they help you with taxis, travel ideas, etc. At the first
night we didn't sleep well, because of the hard bed and pillow, but we
solved that later.
We loved the breakfast area in the garden, the fresh juices, fruits in the morning. They served eggs and toast, pancakes or thai breakfast. Do not expect buffet table. My daughter loved the organic soap wich was made by the hotel. The room is simple, nice wallpaintings, we had a family room wich has two rooms and two bathrooms. I would feel more comfortable if they use a little nicer bedcover and not the old blanket. The bathrooms had showers and no curtains so the toilet get wet after each showering. But it was ok because we used one bathroom for showering and the other one for brushing teeth and toilet.
It would be nice to have shelves or more storage place where we can put our clothes.
We ate dinner twice there and it was very tasty and good price, oh and try the lemongrass mojito, it was fantastic.
The girls at the reception were nice to organize our transportations, they always gave advice what is a good price.
Since this hotel is in the old BKK we took the ferry to downtown which is cheap and fast. But on the evening the taxis were nightmare, many times only the 5th taxi could take us home and of course without the meter. Take the map always with you which explains the hotel location.
I would recommend this hotel to my friends if they visiting BKK.
We loved the food, the warmth of the staff..the location (we adventured to many places from there!). It is a great hotel for those who are a little back packerish..If the show of a modern lobby is for you...not there!
Excellent kitchen! Clean. Quirky. Great for children.
An oasis in the midst of a chaotic city.
The view from the upper deck is so Bangkok...modern bridge, giant Buddha, etc
We stayed for 4 nights, had our 7 month old son with us. PN had prepared us a nice baby bed in our room upon our request. Hotel looks so original, food was great, staff attentive and helpful. The suburbs around were lovely. I think it was great, that the room did not have a TV :). We definitely consider revisiting, whenever we have another chance to travel to Thailand!
Great hotel where we could have an amazing stay for two days of staying . Our room was frankly spacious and clean, staffs helped us to bring breakfast up to our room for private. All attractions located nearby and we had great time to see Dawn temple, World shopping center and Skytrain. We will come back to stay at hotel next month
