Hidden behind a gate is this former palace that was built in 1908 and now serves as a small hotel and a restaurant. From the busy street you unexpectedly enter into an oasis of calm, a park garden with pavilions. The restaurant is directly on the river. There is only a fixed menu available, which changes day by day. Seated...

Secluded behind a nondescript door lay the ancient palace grounds of Chakrabongse. Once you step inside you are out of the beaten tourist paths of the surrounding Grand Place and nearby temples. Each of the 6 unique "rooms" has its special features. Our Thai house overlooked the main courtyard leading to the river. A lot of space and a generous...

This is simply an oasis, tucked behind gates in a garden setting on the property of a member of the extended royal family. We felt that we were treated like royalty ourselves by Atom and Ohm. They were both so kind and helpful. The property has a resplendent landscaping of fountains, a long trellised archway with potted orchids that leads...

This year I turned 60 and decided on a holiday in Thailand, of course I had to include Bangkok. I found this amazing small characterful place not far from the Royal Palace and Wat Pho. The staff are the most helpful I have come across on the holiday. The room is lovely, Moroccan in style, the Mali room, like home...

We absolutely loved this place it's so beautiful relaxing boutique villas with magical gardens in the middle of a busy area of Bangkok. Once inside the grounds it's so quiet and private and just wonderful. Staff are very helpful and the manager Mr Omh is a great wealth of knowledge. Breakfast was yummy and a great start for the day....

Once you enter through the gates, a fairytale world emerges. Around every corner another surprise awaits, orchards by our front gate, or kittens sleeping under the bench, the beautiful sunroom. The commissioned pictures are very accurate. My daughter feel in love with mangosteen fruits, first time we tasted them! Ask Ms. Atom (excellent English) to open the book store for...

Beautiful peaceful oasis in the middle of noisy Bangkok. We feel lucky to have found this place and can recommend it to everyone, especially those who like to have a more genuine experience of this unique city rather than staying in the big chain hotels. Very clean, neat and pleasant place.

I stayed in the river view villa for 3 nights during my Bangkok visit. The villa had everything I needed, it was a generous size with a separate lounge & study area, all beautifully appointed. The view of the busy Chao Phraya river with the passing barges, plentiful boats and ferries was a delight to watch. The famous Temple of...

I have used tripadvisor to plan trips for years, but our magical time at the Chakrabongse Villas has finally inspired me to write a review of my own.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
