An offshoot of neighbouring Phu-Talay Seafood Restaurant on the north side of the estuary, Baan Talay has the refreshing feel of a seaside cottage.
Only a handful of rooms are set in a revamped two-storey house with hardwood floors and pastel blue trim to compliment flush white walls. Smart rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped with air-con, small LCD TVs, soft beds, fridges and ocean-inspired art. Some rooms lack windows, but they do have skylights above the showers that allow daylight to shine in. The lack of windows is also offset by a lovely common space with relaxing chairs and floor cushions overlooking the mangroves across the estuary, which light up at night with fireflies. This is a good choice if you want the peace and quiet of Khlong Prao but prefer more of a Thai-style atmosphere. With that said, limited English is spoken and the place seems to cater more to Thais.
