Baan Chantra

Well-done bed and breakfast

What we say: 4 stars

Set in a restored Thai house (the original building was built in 1936) Baan Chantra offers a classy and intimate place to stay a 15-minute walk north of Khao San Road. Lovingly decorated and fitted out, the rambling house incorporates a variety of rooms, both big and small and both on and off the noisy Samsen Rd. Polished wood throughout, all rooms have private bathroom facilities, air-con, minibar, in-room security safe and WiFi access. The front rooms have a small closed in veranda area that can be shut off from the main room, giving you an extra layer of insulation from the traffic noise — though light sleepers in the front rooms will still need earplugs. Other features include a small sitting area at rear on the first floor and a downstairs library/common room where you can relax with a book or laptop. The rooms are well done, and the place as a whole nails a classic bed and breakfast vibe. While discounts are available for longer stays, walk in and short-stay rates are not cheap — you're paying for the privilege of staying in a fairly unique little property. The receptionist we met spoke perfect English but was very business-like and not as warm or welcoming as the gangs at nearby Baan Manusarn, Baan Tepa and Phra Nakorn Norn Len.
