The room was perfect. It had all... More

We can definitely recommend this B&B for everyone who doesn't like to stay in one of the many commercial skyscraper hotels in Bangkok. The rooms are very nice, stylish, modern and super clean, breakfast is great, but the best thing is the service of Karan, the host: he is very intelligent and attentive and can help you with everything you...

Everything was perfect, especially regarding service provided by the hotel. Very friendly and willing to help. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. Nothing to complain about ! And the area around the hotel is full of small restaurants and street food.

Sink-in real bangkok experience without the touristy stuff. In a very middle class residential neighborhood a very spacious and clean accommodation and a warm host in Karan. Good for families with kids.
