This homestay is beautiful and a real homestay because the owners (a lovely Thai couple) make breakfast and let you join for dinner.

Arvik | April 1, 2019

The location is excellent for exploring Chanthaburi by scooter and the property is a green paradise full of beautiful plants.

Arvik | April 1, 2019

Chanthaburi was a very nice town and the homestay with Pong and her husband made our stay even more worthwhile.

Lukas | February 6, 2020

The house is full of quirky details and you can see that building and decorating it has been a labour of love.

Jimena | February 9, 2020

Good Location which is in the heart of city just few minutes walks thru church and old town market.

Everything was comfortable and clean and the owners are a truly stellar couple, kind and sweet.

        It's the little things that count!”

        Peaceful, Beautiful wooden design and the friendliness of the owners

        Banchan 9 Homestay is run by a very welcoming and friendly couple Pong and 'Diamond'. 'Diamond' built/crafted the designer teak/wooden house with expert craftsmanship utilising old doors, windows and timbers from other old houses. It has an amazing ambience and from the moment you arrive the stresses of travel dissipate. It is the little things that count and Pong and 'Diamond' have thought of most things. There is a kitchenette with coffee and tea making facilities, a stocked fridge with ice in the freezer and complimentary bottled water. The beautiful rooms come equipped with things you may have forgotten like shampoo, mosquito repellant, moisturiser and if there is anything else you may need the hosts are more than happy to help. Each of the 4 rooms has its own character and when you arrive you are shown each room for you to make your selection. The complimentary breakfast can be western but I would recommend the Thai style soups which are delicious. Ideal for a family or group but as a solo traveller here for the gem market it was a place to come 'home' to after a day at the market. It is a short 5-10 minute walk to the market from the Homestay. Pong and Diamond do not actually live in the house, they live a couple of houses away so you still have your own space unlike many homestays. Chanthaburi has some fantastic restaurants but also many many delicious street vendors. Do not worry about eating from street vendors the food is clean and very good, just follow the golden rule i.e If it is busy with locals the food is good! Also make sure you check out the riverside cafes and restaurants! A thoroughly enjoyable stay and I would recommend it completely.

The spacious terraces invite you to relax and enjoy the silence. Every morning we were served a magical breakfast. The owners took great care of us. On the last evening we cooked together and had a delicious dinner in the garden, it was wonderful. Thank you very much, we are very happy to come back!

        Great Chanthaburi experiences”

        location, hospitality

        I fully enjoyed staying at Banchan 9. Its location is superb. Chanthaburi river as well as a cathedral, one of Chanthaburi's must-see places, is just minutes walk from the house. The owners speak good English and you can learn from them all what you want to know about Chanthaburi. In particular, they gave me good recommendations about where to go and eat. One of them was a restaurant specialised in authentic Chanthaburi cuisine. Massaman durian was heavenly. Don't leave Chanthaburi without dining at this restaurant. Banchan 9 is an ideal place to stay for those wishing to have authentic Chanthaburi experiences.

        What a great discovery Chanthaburi has been, starting with our beautiful Homestay and our hosts with whom we had a great time and are always there when you need it. We felt at home. The location was perfect as we were on a quiet street, 2 to 5 minute walk from the Cathedral and waterfront on one side, same distance from local street restaurants and minimarts on the other side. Municipal Market is a 20 minute walk, the Waterfalls and beaches are a 15-20min drive away. Chanthaburi is a peaceful, cultural, not touristic yet busy city

        We would like to recommend the Homestay, which is run by the couple Pong and Diamond, unreservedly. Mrs. Pong, who speaks excellent English, and her husband will take care of all your guests' needs, from breakfast of your choice to scooter hire and much more. The traditional Thai style homestay is a social place where you feel at home. We had rented a whole floor, there were several fans and very good mosquito protection. The Homestay also has air-conditioned rooms. Guests can prepare food in a kitchen. Coffee, tea and clean water are available free of charge. The location of the homestay is excellent. The old town can be reached in about five minutes. In the immediate vicinity, there are Tesco, Seven Eleven and a pharmacy as well as excellent street food stands. We can recommend this Homestay to other travelers in every respect. Annette and Manfred

The woman speaks good English and is very helpful (for example, she organized a taxi for us for a day at the Chao Lao beach). Also we had breakfast every morning and as much cold bottled water as you need for free. The rooms were nicely furnished, clean and big, the only problem were the mosquitoes, but fans and mosquito nets helped. Thanks for the great stay!

        Great family run 'homestay'. This was our second stay here, and we marvelled again at the rambling and comfortable designs for the rooms. The location proved a little difficult for the taxi drivers at the bus station; fortunately we managed to find an English speaker who explained all in Thai and we eventually left by two motorbike taxis (I am sure there would have been no issue if I had printed out the actual booking using Thai script). No such problems on the way back to the bus station, as the owner kindly gave us a lift back. The location is a pleasant walk from the water front restaurants and bars on Th Sukhaphiban. Please give this place a try!

        Location, charming, helpful host

        I stayed on and off for three months here - Pong and Diamond - the owners - are extremely friendly and helpful and flexible - whatever you need they will try and fix it. The homestay is in a lush garden in a quiet area but very close (easily walkable to the town centre) to the town centre and the old town. The river - the nicest thing about Chantabhuri is a short stroll away too, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants along the banks The place is old style, all wooden and very open plan - the heat and the mosquitoes do feel free to intrude - so if you'd like a sealed aircon box, this isn't the place for you. If you'd like a charming place with constant local fruit, various cheerful characters dropping in and birdsong to wake up to this is the place for you.

        Location, staff, rooms

        A charming little homestay with just four rooms, this place is run by a charming Thai couple, who live right next door. Rooms are traditional and all-wood, with excellent rustic charm. Wooden gaps mean the mosquitoes tend to find easy access, but the nets over the beds work well. A free bicycle can take you to the superb old town area and Catholic church within 2 minutes.

        Charming rustic travel experience”

        We booked two double rooms, each with an extra 'bed' (floor mattress/bedding for one of the rooms) for 4 adults and two children costing about 1,000 baht per room per night. Excellent value considering the quality of the experience. We were given the whole top floor of the main wooden house - there are about 8-10 rooms spread in the main house and several small wooden old-style chalets and anti-buildings on this 'urban jungle-garden' property. Vintage wooden buildings and internal fittings/decorations make this a travel experience stay, rather than a comfort break. Expect ceiling fans and electric swing floor and wall fans rather than air conditioning. Expect attractive rustic Thai equivalents to wooden poster beds with mosquito nets (and rather hard mattresses), rather than comfortable king size mattresses and low impact mosquitoes. Expect varying local breakfast foods with interesting treats added by a lovely host couple - Poo has excellent English btw - rather than a routine breakfast buffet and employees of varying commitment. Expect higgeldy piggeldy rather than seried ranks of concrete-walled cocoons with functional furnishings. Expect close contact with other travel guests (though we were alone in low season) rather than the anonymity of most accommodation alternatives If you are a cool country person you might struggle (outside of the Nov/Dec/Jan cool season) without air-con and the mosquito relief that also brings, but aficionados who crave a truly Thai experience will not get it in the normal run-of-the mill mansion block and boutique hotels. Excellently located in central Chantaburi. Get up early and walk the cathedral, the old riverside town streets and the central market areas as the town comes to life - unforgettable! For Thais and for expats living here or in the region - as well as the generality of foreign tourists who have 'done' the usual Thailand trail already - it is worth seeking out a weekend or longer to visit the lovely province and cit

        Outstanding personal attention of owners”

        Great service, friendly atmosphere, close to interesting areas along the river, quiet.

        The outstanding personalized care of the owners is the high point of this hotel experience. It has the feel of a home and we were treated like family. In todays hotel environment this is truly unusual and is certainly welcome. Being very small with only four rooms allowed for interaction among the guests in the common area. Everything about the hotel speaks for care. Just looking at the neatness of the wiring says a lot about the care that the owners have put into this special property that they have developed.

        Authentic Thai old style accommodation”

        A wonderful couple built and run this place. It is built from recycled timber (lots of teak wood), and has such a charm to it! If you like rooms you would find in any city in Europe or the western world, this is not for you. BUT, if you love charm, quaint, excellent hospitality and a touch of the authentic of a world gone by, then this is definitely for you. The location is central (in the old town) and once there, you can park safely on the premises and walk easily to all the old town has to offer. Breakfast is tasty and quite traditional. The welcome of the owners is extraordinary, and genuine. Tony and Patcha say do it!
