The Bhuthorn Offers Small, Quaint Accommodation in a Beautifully Restored Building

The Bhuthorn is located in the old part of Bangkok, and is an elegant, old building which deserves the attention that it receives. From the moment you enter this charming guest house, you will be stepping back in time, experiencing Bangkok in the last era. This extraordinary century old shop house has been carefully renovated to provide three distinct and charming guestrooms.

Every room is decorated in a unique style to ensure that you never tire of the fascinating history and design of this guest house. The careful use of Thai décor, fabrics and artifacts ensure that every guest feels as if they are staying in a home, not a guest house. The eccentric colonial atmosphere is electric, and will ensure that you want to return in the future.

The people who own the Bhuthorn are charming, and the older generations are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, the younger members of the family, struggle with English and are not as helpful to the guests. The location of this guest house is difficult to find, and everyone including locals and taxi drivers are often confused by name and directions.

Budget plays a massive part when choosing a guest house in the city, and for what you pay for this accommodation, you could get better facilities. However, the Bhuthorn offers far more than somewhere to sleep, it ensures that you experience Thailand and all its charm. It is ideally located to the Palace, where you can explore and enjoy afternoon mango.

Amenities are limited in the room, apart from a TV; you will find that nothing else is included in the price. There are no tea and coffee facilities, and you will struggle to have one made by the staff, especially in the evenings. The rooms are small, and the bathrooms clean but tiny compared to other guest houses.

The rooms are all named after Thai princes, and are decorated in this theme, which is unique and creates a vintage feel to the guest house. WIFI is available in all three rooms and is relatively fast for Bangkok accommodation. The bed linen is soft, and the beds incredibly comfortable, making sure that you have a decent night’s sleep.

Breakfast is the highlight for many guests and is offered in the courtyard when the weather permits outside dining. There is a wide variety of local juices, seasonal fruits, and excellent finger snacks on offer. The portion size for breakfast is plentiful, which is a pleasant surprise, and consists of sticky rice, sate, sausages, eggs, croissants and yoghurt.

There are several restaurants in the local area to explore, and plenty to see and do including street markets and evening entertainment. If you want to relax in the Bhuthorn there is a mini library to read some of the fascinating books on offer. Regardless of why you choose to visit the city, this guesthouse offers a unique style and an exciting change from the norm.
