    Great location & wonderful staff”

    good location, nice breakfast & helpful staff

    This B&B is located at a good location for people who wishes to explore the local areas and get to know about the local lifes. Karan has been very helpful with recommendations on the places to visit. The floating market we went to was good and highly recommended. The only minus point about this B&B is the noise of the motor bikes passing by this street which can be pretty noisy in the night. So not so recommended for light sleeper. There were people having very loud karaoke at the opposite building on our last night till after 10pm when we needed to wake up early morning for our flight.

    Lovely rooms with extremely helful staff ”

    The hotel was good value for money, beautiful design and the staff went out of the way to help us.

    This is probably our 10th visit to Bangkok and this time we decided to stay somewhere quiet outside of our usual places of Sukhumvit / Siam - and Focal Local was perfect. They provided 1 free tuktuk shuttle a day to the BTS or to the boat and the hotel staff including the owner and his wife were just amazing in helping us. We woke up every morning looking forward to their wonderful breakfast. If you don't mind staying outside of the tourist area and don't mind the small room size over design - then this is the place for you!

    Great hospitality from Karan and his staff

    this little b&b is tucked away down a side-street in thonburi, away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist strip. it's clean and tidy, and karan does great breakfasts. the rooms are small and comfortable, and the little courtyard garden is a pleasant place to sit in the evening to listen to the sounds of th city.

    Quaint B &B”

    Nice breakfast!

    We stayed at Focal after reading so many good reviews. We enjoyed the stay overall, given the proximity to MBK (abt 10 mins on Skytrain), and the cleanliness, comfortable bed, etc. The only small issue is the noise from outside. If you are a light sleeper, do request for a room that doesn't face the road. For 2 nights, I barely got any sleep- that's just me. My hubby slept like a baby.

    The hotel's manager, Karen, could not have given us better service.

    focal local is on the far side of the river and away from the touristy areas of bangkok. this is ideal if you want a taste of bangkok without being treated like a "walking wallet". this hotel is quiet and clean and is in a real thai neighborhood. the hotel will pay for a tuk tuk to take you to the sky train only a few minutes away and you can easily travel to any if the attractions in bangkok. the service, cleanliness and friendliness at the hotel offer excellent value for your money.

    Service, cleanliness, room - all good

    karan, the manager, really bent over backwards to make our time in bangkok a happy one. the guesthouse itself is clean and stylish - excellent value for money. it's an interesting part of town and the guesthouse is walkable from the nearest boat pier and skytrain station, although the guesthouse offers a free shuttle service. can't recommend it enough really - we'll definitely stay there whenever we're in bangkok.

    Wonderful B & B in one of Bangkok's real neighbourhoods”

    Focal Local is a wonderful place to stay and explore Bangkok. It is located in an actual Bangkok neighbourhood (rather than a hotel or tourist area), but still easy access to all of the major attractions. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast excellent. And I can't say enough good things about the hospitality and helpfulness of the owner who provided great suggestions for local food and places to go. This B&B deserves all of the awards it has won on Trip Advisor and recommendations on Agoda. My only regret is that I wish my friend and I had stayed longer at this fantastic B & B.

    Just as average”

    I had arrived early to their guest house and they helped us to checking at around 10:30. They have some DVD and books prepared for you to see in the room. However, the location is not very convenient, the pier and the skytrain station is not only 15 minutes walk as they said (or maybe my wife walked too slow?) However, it is not a bad guest house though~

    Off the beaten but right on track. Staff was extremely helpful. Free tuk tuk to ferry and train

    We loved our stay. The rooms were very comfortable with a nice private bathroom. Staff were helpful and informative. The brackfasts were delicious and the presentation was lovely. Loved the location as part of a residential neighbourhood. We were close to the river and the BTS which made getting around easy.

    Staff eager to help and friendly, clean classy rooms, good access to sights, but out of the tourist crowd

    The breakfast was wonderful, the staff very friendly and responsive to any questions or needs, and the location in a regular neighborhood in the city, not the tourist centers. Good access to restaurants, massage, river taxi. They even packed sack-breakfasts for us when we had to leave early. Wonderful stay in lovely boutique hotel. Thanks for a great visit to Bangkok!

    Awesome staff, great breakfast, really nice rooms

    We loved the location of this B&B. It was in a residential area so you could see Thai people in their every day life and get away from the downtown tourist trap. Breakfast is awesome and included. Also included is a free tuk-tuk ride daily to the river or skytrain, both are very easy to navigate to the tourist attractions. Karan the owner is really friendly, knowledgeable and kind and he will help you with anything you need to know. The rooms are really clean and cute.

    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.

    Awesome”

    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!

    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.
