Locating Bhuthorn was tricky, especially since the taxi driver himself was less than familiar with the area. However, we had the map of the location printed prior to departure. That didn't stop the cab driver from using his multitude of CB radios from contacting his brethren of other taxi drivers from direction.

From the moment we arrived, Chitlada (the owner) was waiting by the door, despite being early. Even from early on, the experience the experience was much akin to returning home after a long period overseas. The hospitality was outstanding, likely due to the limited vacancies available - attention is less divided. We even got the 'official' tour of the place, since the rooms were vacant when we got there. We doubt this would be usual.

And Chitlada's assistant? Mr Waiter/Bellboy/Porter/Housekeeper/Security/.... You get the idea. If I was Chitlada, I'd hang on to him :)

We could go on and on, but the reader would have gotten the idea by now. Stays in the Bhuthorn are a must, if only for the rustic ambience and exquisitely warm hospitality (from friendly local advice to chit-chat during tea and to little known insights of all things Bangkok). We would go back. But the next time, it would be to visit friends.

Chitlada, we owe you pictures. They are coming!

We had a very nice rest of 3 days in the beginning of August, and it was so nice to be there and welcome as familly, that we decided on the way back to come back to more days at the Buthorn. Among the interesting experiences, we had several type of thai dishes at breakfast and came back with the recipe. All type of help we needed from the owner was given quickly, effectively, and happily.

We stayed at the Bhuthorn at the beginning and end of our 17 day trip to Thailand. 

When we arrived in Bangkok from London, we found a taxi and explained where the Bhuthorn was (using the map Chitlada provided). I think Old Town Bangkok, where the Bhuthorn is located, is not particularly well known by taxi drivers which meant we got a little lost on the way!

Once we arrived, we had a very warm welcome from a smiling Chitlada. Our initial impression from the outside was of a bustling, humid Bangkok street. When we stepped inside, everything became cool, calm and relaxed. This is what we loved. The fact that we could experience the crazy and exciting Bangkok, but then return to the haven of the Bhuthorn to relax. 

Chitlada and her staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. They explained Thai customs, recommended  places to go shopping, helped us get taxis and made dinner reservations for us. We were also treated to some traditional Thai foods for us to try with our breakfast, and when we returned feeling hot from a morning looking around the grand palace Chitlada was quick to offer us Thai iced tea and some delicious coconut ice cream.

We had the Bhuthorn room which was spacious, very tasteful and had nice views over the small central park. The bed was really comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. After our trip around Thailand it was really nice to know we would spend our last night back at the Bhuthorn. Hopefully we will be back one day.

We had a great 3-day stay here after two weeks in Thailand. Chitlada was warm and welcoming notwithstanding our arrival late in the day.

The building is nicely decorated. It has three rooms. We stayed in The Bhuthorn room which was perfect for us and good value. Breakfast each morning was great - plenty of food and always included a local treat. They were also happy to oblige us with breakfast at 7 am on our last day before leaving for home.

The location was perfect for touristing around Bangkok. It's a 10-min. walk to the Grand Palace. The river ferries and Khao San Road are within walking distance.

We're looking forward to staying again on our next trip to Thailand.

For a exceptional experience in Bangkok, I highly recommend a stay at The Bhuthorn (located in old town Bangkok on Phraeng Phuthorn Rd., San Chao phor Seua, Phranakhorn) for its impeccable old world décor and faultless hospitality of The Bhuthorn team who go the full mile to help their guests accomplish the utmost out of their visit to Bangkok --- whether in the search for a favorite snack or meal, researching optional ways of traveling to places in and outside of Bangkok (in my case to Ayutthaya), explaining the customs and the meanings of Thai culture and lifestyle, and helpful with suggestions on places to visit and the directions to get there. The Bhuthorn is a beautifully preserved treasure of a building that is nestled amidst a conservation district that is perfect for wandering and exploring hassle-free, on foot and at one’s pace the historic quarters of Ko Ratanakosin, Thonburi, Banglamphu, and Phra Nakhorn; strolling in street markets that make interactions with graceful and courteous Thais an incomparable experience; relaxing in the tree-shaded community of Phuthorn and Nara admiring the conservation endeavors of the Fine Arts Department; dropping in on shops that are still run by family members and housed in old town architecture and design; trying out the numerous superb eating options that is a skip from the front door of The Bhuthorn, whether its fine Thai or Thai-Chinese cuisine, delicious home-style cooked food at street side stalls, fabulous homemade coconut ice cream at a family-run neighborhood shop…
