Probably one of the most peaceful places in Bangkok. Incredibly helpful staff, quiet rooms with incredible showers, delicious breakfasts on a cozy patio, and comfortable beds. This is the place to recharge in a super busy city. Highly recommend to all travelers.

There is no on site parking and we did not have a car. I would suggest sending an email to see if they can make arrangements. I agree with the other person who replied, that the owner is extremely accommodating.
