We loved staying at Old Capital Bike Inn. The decor and overall feel was eclectic, but still very comfortable. All of the staff were so sweet and very accommodating! We received a handwritten welcome note with a little elephant key chain...so sweet and personal! Located just a short jaunt to Khao San Road. Walking distance to Grand Palace. Breakfast was... More

A small hotel very well placed for visiting the sights of Bangkok. The owner goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and loves to give recommendations of where to go and what to see. The breakfast is the best we had in Thailand and is specially prepared for each quest. I would highly recommend this... More

I searched for a hotel near RCAC and this gem popped up. It's converted from a quaint shop house and has 10 rooms, each unique. Ours was the Queen suite which has a loft and Queen bed and a single bed on the lower level. It combined modern comforts (AC, wifi, clean bathrooms etc) with quirky deco. It was a... More

As the title tells - amazing hotel in old Bangkok .. First of all, it's a great experience -the hotel is completed in a fantastic style, where each room has its own signature.

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.
