This is a very unique and funky guest house which you should definitely check out! But I am not 100 % sure that you'll like it. It is truly an Artists's place and you will feel like in an art gallery or museum. Unfortunately the sleeping quality is so bad that as a guest house it's simply bad. I am...

That place is not a simple cheap accommodation. It's also the best place in Bangkok to make good friends. It's more about a mix between an art galerie, a live music place, and a new home. If you need anything, ask Charlie. He can help you and he's the saint of the travellers. Thank you Charlie ;)

We didn´t think we were going to enjoy busy Bangkok, but this really is a retreat from it all. Its in a local Thai neighbourhood where everyone will make you feel at home.

This place is one of Bangkok's best kept secrets. A lovely refuge from the chaos of the city. Nestled in the heart of one of the last traditional neighborhoods it is a short walk to the Skytrain. We have stayed many times and it is always like returning home. The Artist's place is one of a kind, warm, quirky and...

We got the place recommended by some friends. I am so glad we followed up on that recommendation. This guesthouse is situated in a local area, near the skytrain. (about 10 min walk) The area is great, only friendly people and really good food! (Padthai or fried rice for 25 Bath!) The guesthouse is owned bij Charlee, the most welcoming...

I was recommended The Artist's Place by a traveler I met. "You must go here! There's nothing else like it in Bangkok. You'll fall in love with the place and Charlee." he told me. And he was right. This is more than a guesthouse .... it's a place to escape the chaos of Bangkok, to experience an authentic neighborhood, to...

“If you want to have a window and daylight without burning to death, the only AC room in the house is probably the best option (though it's getting noisy very early in the morning -> nearby school).”
