Family friendly vintage guest house in Old Bangkok
Loved this hotel! Don't be fooled by the somewhat grubby front entrance. When you enter Phra-Nakorn, it feels less like entering a hotel than a stage set. Delightfullly faux "shops" evoke Bangkok of the 1930s. The magic continues with the super comfy futons, tropical ambiance and super friendly-warm staff. The food was extraordinary--each day a different and delicious breakfast special with super-fresh ingredients. A boy each morning puts tropical fruits in a juicer for your juice and a variety of espresso drinks are first rate as are the cocktails on the roof. Try the mojito with fresh mint and basil! Everything about this place is pretty, dreamlike and relaxing. The location is great--in a residential area with an easy walk to the ferry.
Would stay here again and again...
We stayed one night here, and we enjoyed it a lot. Nice Thai breakfast. Hard bed. :-) Original and cosy interior. And we especially liked the relaxing area after a busy day in Bangkok. An amazing quiet area. We had dinner on the roof top, where we enjoyed the view on Bangkok. We would definitely come back to this address.
I was really surprised when I came to Bangkok from Australia. "What a crazy city" I thought.
I was very tired after walking in the city but when I entered Phranakorn Nornlen, I could feel peace. Also everything was so pretty! I loved the design and pretty colors. There are cafe and small gift shop on the grand floor. Smoothie that I had was beautiful :-)
There is a space for relaxing too. I just sat there and stayed long time. Very peaceful.
My room was very pretty too. my nose is sensitive so I noticed the water sink smell a little bit but that was ok, better than using strong chemical for cleaning I think.
I joined free cooking class. That was amazing too! Staffs are so kind and I had a wonderful experience!!
The location was a bit far from the station but worth for staying. I loved this accommodation!
What a great experience in this peaceful house ! Rooms are clean, the view from the rooftop is nice, the staff is very helpful and the vintage design is pleasant. Banglamphu district is far away from crazy and noisy city-center, you can discover the authentic Bangkok. We highly recommend this place !
I stayed there for 6 nights, generally this is a good hotel to stay, vintage Thai looking and atmosphere, the public dining hall and resting area is made up to a 60-70's old street, very lovely.
Room wide, it is simply furnished but functional, also a lively 60-70's Thai country looking, if u was born and raise in a metropolis, it will be very attractive to you definitely.
Location wise, it's a little bit hard to find out, my cab driver took 10min to find it.
Counter staffs are very nice and ready to answer almost all your questions.
At the end, I would like to complain the hot water: either water flow and temp cannot meet my standard, hopefully it can be resolved soon.
