Probably one of the most peaceful places in Bangkok. Incredibly helpful staff, quiet rooms with incredible showers, delicious breakfasts on a cozy patio, and comfortable beds. This is the place to recharge in a super busy city. Highly recommend to all travelers.

We got the warmest welcome possible, great tips to try food and massage places around the hotel as well as to avoid falling in tourist traps in Bangkok, our room was quiet, comfortable and spotless clean. We really enjoyed that this is not in a touristic area of Bangkok as we felt we got a more authentic feel for the city, yet it is easy to get anywhere. We would stay there again if we go back to Bangkok.

Bangkok is rush and crush. Focal Local is an oasis. The owners are exceptionally responsive to meeting requests for information and or services. Focal Local is on an alley and the hotel staff will arrange a complimentary tuk tuk to the Skyway or river ferry. We spent 4 days at Focal Local when we arrived in Thailand and plan on spending the last 3 days of our trip before returning to the Midwest

Focal Local is a small charming bed and breakfast hotel! It is located in a quiet area with local characteristics, that I liked a lot! It's close to skytrain and ferry, very easy to get to the main sightseeings. The hotel itself is run by an excellent team that added only positively to my experience. Small things that made a big difference (like the welcoming sign). My room was lovely, nature orientated and the Thai breakfast was delicious (different everyday). Also, they gave me useful tips to my trip to Bangkok and Ayutthaya. As a female solo traveller, I felt very safe and secured. I am really happy about this choice, thank you, kind people of Focal Local!

We stayed there for 3 days in Jan.Was a little hesitant at first since it was a B&B. We reached there at an unearthly hour-4am. Our taxi driver knew no English but on ringing up the reception, someone attended immediately and gave directions to the driver.Once we reached, there was someone to receive us with refreshing drinks.That was our first meeting with the unfailingly polite and ever-smiling Nid! Wonderful hostess!! This is a great place to stay. Room is nice, clean & very comfortable. So is the bathroom.They only provide breakfast here ( we always ate Thai!). However, for dinner there are excellent cafes within walking distance. We had lunch in cafes wherever we were visiting. Karan the manager/owner is an excellent advisor for places one might want to visit & also warned us about the possible scams we might face. The best part of staying here is the flavour of urban Thai life that one gets. If I
come again, I would like to stay here once more.
