I can't speak for the accommodation rooms, as I only stopped in for a drink and snacks. The small reception area was very inviting and they confirmed they serve coffee, beer, and snacks. The staff were very friendly and the ambiance very relaxing. They offer a simple variety of snacks and drinks, including Thai craft beers (180 baht).

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 February 2017

How can you call a place a "hotel" when the hotel owner runs for a medicine when he hears you coughing ? Isn't it almost a parental care when your breakfast is prepared uniquely for you entirely upon your wishes and requests with great care and the best ingredients. Every single guest enjoys the rich variety of the breakfast exactly...

Old Capital Bike Inn is a hidden gem. They serve delicious breakfasts, free night bike tours, unique rooms, with an immensely friendly and helpful staff. Little gifts were left in our room each day when we returned from exploring Bangkok. Even after we had checked out and left our bags there for our last day in Bangkok, they had a...

We had a wonderful stay at Old Capital Bike Inn. The hotel has about 6 rooms - we stayed in Family Suite. The rooms are very unique and the owner is very gentile. Also all information given before and during the stay has been very helpful. The lobby located direct to the lobby - there is no sound insulation therefore...

Thank you for your kind review of us. It's reassuring to know you had a good stay in Bangkok. And please accept our apologies about the noise, as sometimes guests in the lobby may be a bit lively which we will try harder to make sure the noise level is more controlled. But overall, we're glad you enjoyed what our...

The hotel is lovely, full of character and the rooms are very special. Everyone we met who works at the hotel was both professional, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was great too! I thoroughly recommend the hotel (really near sights, pier etc) although I sort of want to keep it a secret too :-)

This is one of my favorite places I've ever stayed. The hotel is incredibly charming. The vintage furniture is lovely (and comfortable!). The staff are so helpful & friendly. They gave us tips and helped plan our time in Bangkok, and leave little personalized notes on your bed with a gift everyday. The included breakfast is also amazing- fruit plates...

If you want to stay away from the clean lines of a modern hotel this is the place for you. I write this as I sit in the bath (which is in the garden). The staff are amazing nothing too much trouble for these guys. Book the bike tour if you stay here it's amazing.

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.
