    My favorite place in Bangkok”

    This was my first trip to Bangkok. I stayed in three different hotels (located in three different areas). Baan Chantra was my favorite. The location had everything I needed nearly at a good price. The breakfast was the best I had the whole time. And the staff were wonderful. I wish I had stayed at Baan Chantra the whole time. If I return to Bangkok, it will be the only place I stay.

    Baan Chantra is perfectly located: in a calm area but close to Khao San Road and the palace/temples. The staff is particularly helpful and the facilities are very nice. I highly recommend that hotel and will surely come back.

    Got here late at night - a staff member was waiting up to welcome us and let us in. Nice place, very clean - wonderful breakfast. 10-15 min walk to local attractions, including K HOA SAN road. 30 min walk to Grand Palace/ Wat Pho or plebty of Tuk Tuk around to drive you. Area has good street vendors right outside the door and nice low key bars around the corner. Nice little place!

    a regal Thai home that is better than family”

    The graciuos warmth and personal hospitality of the staff, the genuine Thai experience, the location near the Grand Palace, in a vibrant neighborhood

    The Baan Chantra is an oasis of traditional Thai hospitality. You are welcomed as family and attended to as true VIP's. The accommodations are exactly as pictured, but do not do justice to the feeling of home that pervades from your first step in the front door thru your last moment before departure. The owner Kulthida and her staff treat every guest in a way that would honor her Grandmother, the original owner of the house. Further details: The Thai breakfast is delicious and traditional. Kulthida and her staff are a fount of information and guidance about local sights, restaurants, transportation tips. They are very attentive and supportive in arranging transportation and making sure that your stay is stress free. I highly recommend Kulthida and Baan Chantra if you want a chance to touch the local culture and enjoy the best of Thai hospitality.

    What a great time we had at Baan Chantra. From start to finish we loved our stay here. The welcome from the staff was first to none, especially during the busy period when it was the Kings birthday. We were made to feel at home and felt part of the family.

    Wonderful staff - but traffic noise”

    Staff, decoration, library

    It`s a cute hotel, with a bit of vintage style, and an extremely friendly and helpful owner. Staff stayed up in the night to receive us in the early morning. The location was good - apart from it being located directly next to a relatively busy road - the traffic noise was quite load, even at night when some cars were rushing by very fast. But it`s a great place otherwise!

    Best stay of our trip!”

    The staff by far are the best attributes of this hotel. Everyone there was amazing, helpful and incredible nice. They went above and beyond many times to make sure we had anything we wanted.

    We fell in love with Baan Chantra and look forward to staying there again. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Bangkok. They may not have their own pool or spa, but they make up for it with an over the top welcoming atmosphere. The owners welcomed us as though we had been family. I would highly advise anyone staying there to ask for their Thai breakfast, every dish we had was delicious.

    Charming place in a hectic Bangkok”

    Fantastic homely atmosphere but with modern conveniences, lovely homemade sausage patties best in Thailand after over ten years travelling there, good coffee unlimited

    The staff who run this go the extra mile without any fuss. Free room extension as they had a late check in after us. The breakfast was fresh and delicious with extra oj and tea and coffee. Spacious clean well designed rooms with plenty of power points and the use of an iMac. When checking out the staff member hailed us a meter cab to the airport, nothing is too much trouble an I would definitely recommend if you visiting Bangkok.

    Great location but fairly noisy room”

    Very welcoming and accommodating staff; excellent breakfasts; excellent location

    This hotel is a "bed and breakfast" place, with only a few rooms. However, it is very well located (only about 20 min walk from the Grand Palace etc. in Bangkok), and the staff are excellent and welcoming. I received a wonderfully prepared fresh thai breakfast each day, which set me up well for the day. The only downside is that the room we were in (no. 3, I think) was quite noisy, despite the double glazing, as it looked out onto samsen road. Despite that, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an informal place to stay in central Bangkok.

    Quirky, quaint, fantastic staff”

    Owner and Staff more than helpful

    Stayed here Nov 12. Wife booked it so was sure what to expect. Easy to miss as blends in with all the other properties along the main road. First thing remember this is a guest house and not a hotel. Once you understand the difference then you will enjoy this place. The first room we did reject as it didn't have any natural light. The only room available was their best room and so had to pay a bit more to upgrade, but lets be honest the cost comparable to our pound was very small. The room itself was characterful and even had a small courtyard. It was clean and tidy and comfortable. Breakfast you had to request what you wanted the night before which was fine as you got what you wanted. The location is a bit away from the city centre but near the palace. The owner and staff were brilliant. Couldn't do enough for you. Every time we left the place they would come outside and hail a cab for you and speak to the driver. That way we knew exactly either how much it was going to cost or if it was going on a meter. Would recommend. Enjoy your stay!
