Perfect for familiesby PN guests :) on 03/16/13
We spent nearly a week at Phranakorn with two kids (5 and 6). It´s perfectly located to the river, so you can get anywhere quite fast by river boats. And you could always take a taxi (which still is amazingly cheap).
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful - they even help to get a taxi that uses taximeters. And they really like kids there. The playground is perfect for the children to relax after long days of exploring the big city.
Rooms are beautiful and clean, fresh drinking water is provided in the rooms every day. The hotel´s slogan "have a slow life" is sometimes taken too seriously - especially when you order food or coffee...:-) But the overall groove is relaxed, friendly and open hearted and that´s why it is the only place to stay at in Bangkok - at least for families with children.
