Tavee Guest House
Ranked #82 of 1,389 Speciality Lodging in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2015

We loved Tavee Guesthouse from the moment we found its little alleyway. It is a perfect 20 minute walk from the super touristy areas - very convenient to get to places like the Grand Palace, but away from the noise of Khao San Road. There are a few very friendly staff, and a few less-warm staff (but we thought maybe they were just tentative about speaking English - they weren’t rude or anything). We were lucky enough to be there during the guesthouse’s annual monk’s blessing, and the guesthouse provided a delicious, free Thai feast to the guests in celebration. It was lovely. :)

Things we liked:
-Clean, simple rooms
-Good location
-Great food: breakfasts were always delicious, albeit a tiny bit expensive when compared to what you could get on the street; and the Thai dinner we had there one night was great.
-Beautiful, quiet courtyard where you eat your meals, have a beer, or just hang out.

Things we didn’t like:
-While it’s a quiet guesthouse, you can hear literally every noise coming from other rooms. This is because at the top of the wall of all of the fan rooms, there’s just a screen between the room and the hallway (no actual wall). When someone opens their door, it sounds like they’re opening your door; when someone is whispering in the room across from yours, you can basically hear it. We used earplugs and it was fine, but it was still irritating to feel like we had zero privacy.
-While the bed was huge, the top sheet was tiny (it didn’t cover the two of us). Just ask for an extra sheet if there are two of you.
-Like most places in Thailand, the shower is in a combined little area with the toilet. If you’re in a room with the shared bathrooms, you have to walk onto what is usually the wet bathroom floor with your bare feet (as shoes are supposed to be left outside). This may not bother everyone, but it always bothers me - maybe bring flip-flops if you think that’d bother you.

Room Tip: Stay in an aircon room if noise bothers you.

Clean rooms with nice decor, either fan without toilet (350/500bht) or air con with toilet (750bht). Shared toilets are meticulously cleaned and have hot shower if you like. Close to Chao Praya river ferrry stop Thewes pier (N15). There a lot of better value places in Bangkok but many are in or close to Khao San road and have a sleazy party vibe. This place seems to attract a bit more mellow following and for the most part is quiet and respectful. I have visited this place at least 10 times in 6 years and have yet to have my "bummer" visit. On a very nice note, they have a free storage room that by the looks of it may have things left there for years (possibly not secure). The free storage is a very important thing for travelers moving on to or from colder climates.

After trying a few budget accomodation options in BK I now always head back to Tavee. Over 16 or 17 years I've never had any problems. It's pretty quiet and a great place to meet other travellers for a beer.

Not the cheapest in Bangkok, but it's a good value for the price. The place is very clean and you can enjoy a nice indoor garden. Food is also not bad at all. It's located in Thewet area, wich is a really nice place to stay in town. Not too far, but quite peacefull.

This place was very clean but I think it was a bit expensive for the room we got (fan, shared bathroom). I think we paid 500 baht for the room which got us an AC room with private bathroom in a budget guesthouse on Pra Athit road. The staff waited up for our very late arrival after coming from the airport which was nice.

We stayed at Tavee twice this summer and loved it! First of all the location is great in the old town near all the places to visit. It's also about 20 minutes from Khao San Road by foot. The location is really calm, staff is always helpful and concerned. The restaurant is probably the best one I ever tried in a guesthouse, and cheaper than some in the streets. The rooms can be a bit noisy but overall everything is clean and comfy. It's probably the best price/quality value you can get in Bangkok. I would definitely go there next time.
