Lovely guesthouse : Family friendly vintage guest house in Old Bangkok

Lovely guesthouse

We arrived here at nearly midnight exhausted after a long journey on the train so we were grateful for a huge bed and a proper single bed in a connected room. The whole place is decorated in a fun and quirky style. It took a couple of days to get into the groove of Phra-Nakorn as it seemed a little impersonal at times, there is a large turnover of guests. The walls are thin so if your room is next to a family with children you know all about it. The hallways are dark if the lights are not on. The breakfast doesn't have a menu as such, you will be offered a Thai breakfast (savoury) which at first seems offbeat with the combo of flavours but was always delicious, the rest of the breakfast offerings were very French in style, (not sure about scrambled eggs with pancakes though!) What we loved the most was cocktails on the rooftop garden and BBQ night overlooking the golden Buddha and fireworks on the Kings birthday, spectacular! Old Bangkok is a good place to stay as the Chao Praya river is an easy 10 minute walk and ferries leave regularly much better than getting caught in the traffic.
