I chose the Standard room with no breakfast option. I love the set up of the old building as a lobby/living room. Feels family welcoming. Room is good size for solo traveller and the bed & pillows are comfortable for me. Bathroom is clean with basin separating the toilet & shower. Room is bright and feels warm. Like one reviewer mentioned, there are no hooks for your towels. Conveniently located in lower Silom area with easy access to bus, SkyTrain & water boat. Owners are friendly & welcoming.

After considerable research, I originally chose this boutique hotel because of it’s history and beautiful aesthetic as seen on the website. I am very curious about hotels that are renovated from older houses, that maintain the structure and style while updating what we need for modern convenience. The hotel and room itself was even more lovely than the photos on the website. The linens, floors and bathroom was very clean, very stylish, and the area was very quiet even though the location is quite central. The service was impeccable and all of the staff were very kind and helpful Why I would stay at this hotel again: I felt very safe as a single woman traveler coming to and from the hotel. There is always a guard, many cameras and a big gate to enter the property. I slept very well with little to no noise. I really enjoyed the hotel breakfast, sitting with a view of the small pool and banyan tree, listening to the birds. You can feel you are no longer in the center of a major metropolis and take a break from the traffic, hustle and bustle outside. The wifi is good, the water pressure in the shower is good, cute koi fish greet you when you come back, and the aesthetic is beautiful. Huge bonus: you can book a taxi to take you to and from the airport through the hotel for a reasonable price! I enjoyed this hotel so much, I recommended it to my colleague who also ended up staying here and having a good experience.
