“Shhhhhh” you might want to keep this gem of an inn a secret. As a frequent traveler to Thailand you understand that overnighting in Bangkok is often necessary due to midnight arrivals and 1am departures. We were SO ready to get out of the airport hotels. Set on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, tucked into Old Bangkok, this former royal home of HRH Prince Chkrabongse is a tranquil haven from the noise and stress of Bangkok. Next trip, allow time to rediscover Bangkok as it once was. Each one of the six rooms has a personality all its own. Standard double rooms are Moroccan style, the Riverview and Chinese suites are located in a separate buildings and have fabulous river views from private decks. Rooms are luxuriously appointed with antiques and fabrics that enhance the feeling of stepping back in time. (...) We had the pool all to ourselves as with only six rooms we rarely saw other guests. This place gets a 10 out of 10 on the romantic scale. And, for jaded travelers this place reminds you why we do it. Just make sure that you write down (in Thai) directions for Taxi drivers to get you back to the inn should you go out for the evening as even the local taxis can’t find this place. An added bonus is the #1 school for massage two blocks away... 2 hours massages for approx. USD 30. Discover and keep this secret for yourself!
