The location is not that perfect for bangkok's first time traveller. But if you stay there a bit longer, you will find such kind of local neighbourhood area is very interesting and relaxing.

Comfortable, Staff very friendly
Staff friendliness, room comfortable, free taxi service once a day to the sky train or river pier
The location wasn't as good as I thought, takes 5 mins walking to the main road to get a taxi. If you plan to take the free taxi to sky train, that would be only 5 mins from the hotel. Massage was 15 mins walking distance from the hotel, not convenient. Staff was very helpful and friendly, would give us suggestion on how to avoid the traffic and get to the destination on time.

Great alternative. Authentic location.
The very authentic, non-touristy location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Cleanliness.
This hotel is a great alternative because it is in a very authentic neighborhood: you get to see real every-day Bangkok life. We loved that, but it is also out of the way and somewhat far away from the main Bangkok attractions. It's close to public transport, though. So, it depends on how much time you have and how willing you are to spend time getting elsewhere. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful; they really go out of their way to make you comfortable. The rooms are quite small and minimal, but the whole hotel is in excellent conditions and very clean.

Friendly staff, great design.
The manageris a really nice guy, who helped us plan the trip and provide a lot of useful suggestions. Although a little accident happened (we missed the flight to chiang Mai) ,she helped us check the availability of train ticket and book a taxi to the station which only costs 125 +45 toll fee for 15.5km. One of the little drawback is location, especially at the time when u first arrived, around 1.3 km from the BTS station, make sure u got the address printed in Thai so that the driver could find the hotel easily. Good news is u'll have one free tuk tuk to the riverside or bts station.Anyway A++ rating,we really appreciated. Many thanks!

if you are coming to bangkok. STAY HERE!
friendly, knowledgable staff, non touristy location, fun room decoration
I liked this place so much i immediately rebooked for the last night of my holiday! The rooms are large for a city hotel& are all decorated to a theme, mine was a sunny seascape, the beds are comfy, there is a bit of outside noise but it stopped early. Tge best thing about focal local are it's staff. They seem genuinely delighted to have you there and are commited to making sure you have the best time in bangkok. They are full of local& citywide information and have handy local& city maps. The free daily tuk tuk is great as it allows you to get you bearings but both the sky train& river boat are well within walking distance. The second great thing about here is it's location. Because you are away from the main backpackers hub you are surrounded by ordinary thais living yheir lives. You experience none of the hassle that every other traveller i've talked to seems to have had. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Not perfect but great enough
Friendly Staff, Quiet Environment, Delicious Breakfast set
The breakfast set prepared by the staff is delicious, I appreciate they are trying to ensure guests are full before starting new day in Bangkok. The room is simple yet clean. Staffs are friendly and always give their hands should you need any info. Lastly, it is glad that Focal Local had arranged a cab for us so we can took a early flight return to our country.

This was a great place to land in BKK; the staff was so helpful in suggesting activities and transportation. The rooms were carefully designed and maintained; the internet fast & A/C cold; and the food...well... my husband and i are STILL talking about how good it was.

Feeling like a local at this great b&b
Staff, modern room, clean
Very nice B&b in an upcoming neighborhood on the west side of the river. You feel indeed very local there! Close to BTS, free tuktuk a day or you can walk through nice little streets. Small room, but clean, new and modern. Good breakfast with fresh fruit and fresh orange juice. If you don't like Asian, just ask for eggs. And like every one else is saying; great staff! We would definitely recommend to friends.

service, breakfast, comfortable room
Good respects are nice breakfast,hospitality staff, and generally good room conditions.Not so good points, first, the location is not quite convenient, that is why the hotel offers a one-way tuk-tuk to BTS everyday. Also the wifi is not so strong in room as in lobby. I have to go to the lobby sometimes for iinternet. If u want to live a little far from down-town for quite sleep,this would be a good choice.
