Bann Kun Pra

Stretching along the riverside within a short walk of Chao Phrom Market, Bann Kun Pra occupies a pair of beautifully preserved teakwood houses.

While the value is questionable when only considering the facilities, the antiquarian ambiance might just make it worth a stay.

The main house by the river is more than a century old and although these rooms are small and perhaps a bit dusty, the four-poster beds, dark-wood interiors, period furnishings and shared terrace make up for it. Relying on shared bathrooms, these come with moveable fans; some noise from passing boats should be expected. Hard beds are draped in white curtains and all rooms come with vintage chests or tables along with a few swing-open windows, some with river views. One room has an attached balcony. Filled with portraits and antiques, common spaces feel like a museum. Set in a separate building further back from the river, the male and female dorms feature four single beds (no bunks) spread over fairly spacious rooms. Though less charming than the main house, a third house with a more modern look boasts comfy and spacious air-con rooms with wall-size glass windows, private terraces, better mattresses and medium-size private bathrooms. Bann Kun Pra also has a great riverside restaurant and free WiFi.

The location is a five-minute walk from the train station ferry pier, on the west bank of the Prasak, and 15 minutes from Soi Farang. While not rude or harsh, the staff is often distracted with the restaurant. Bann Kun Pra is also spelt “Baan Khun Phra” and should not be confused with Phrakhun House, a newer cafe/guesthouse on Naresuan Road.

What remains of the ancient temples and palaces is now essential viewing for history-inclined travellers -- or anyone who might enjoy a stroll through impressive ruins.
