We did not expect so nice welcome and and so lovely place in Bangkok. And after we got our room with terrace and almost private garden. Wonderful! Everything is clean, fresh, breakfast by your choice - Thai or European. All team - so friendly. So, great two days in great place! Thank you Focal Local B&B team!

Our arrival was delayed two days because of flight cancellations, and Karan took care of canceling activities we had planned and making sure we had a ride waiting for us at the airport when we finally made it! The room was perfect. It had all...

Me & my partner stayed here on our way out of Bangkok and our way back in before flying out. We loved many things about our stay here, so here is a list we wanted to share! First- Karan has excellent English, and excellent customer service. He is a genuine and kind person, and we loved getting to know him!...

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...
