Refreshing sanctuary in the heart of old Bangkokby PN guests :) on 03/16/13
This charming guest house met all of my expections. Arriving in Bangkok after midnight and a 20+ hour journey, I was met at the airport by a driver for their car service (cost about $20.00) who handed me a cold bottle of water and quickly escorted me to a comfortable limo and whisked me through Bangok to the neighborhood in Old Bangkok where the guest house is located. Upon arrival at the guesthouse, friendly staff escorted me to my room.
This guesthouse is not for everyone, but it is for travelers like myself- those who like a unique place to stay rather than a cookie cutter type of hotel. Each of the rooms is individually painted with unique wall murals. The common area is filled with plants and an unobtrusive play area for children. A unique collection of memorabillia also adorns this area. The gift shop has individually crafted gifts and spa products.
Upon arrival you also receive a coupon for 1/2 off a Thai massage. After a long flight, this was especially invigorating.
Walking around the neighborhood I encountered a Buddhist festival as well as a wonderful marketplace and lots of friendly folks. It is also only a few blocks from a stop on the water ferry which takes you to all of the major sights.
So, if I ever return, there is no where else I would stay in Bangkok!
