Funky and comfy

What we say: 4 stars

Looking like a research station on Mars from the outside, this funky spot opened in 2012 and is run by a stylish and welcoming young Thai couple. The old building was gutted and replaced with polished concrete walls and floors that give the place an urban-industrial vibe -- but that's not to say it isn't comfortable. Well-kept rooms are outfitted with firm beds, small tables, textural paintings with hot oranges, reds and yellows and wrap-around balconies. The room we checked out had two doors that both open onto the balcony but no actual windows, making it rather dark with the doors closed. If you don't mind the lack of windows, all rooms come with air-con, LCD TVs, free WiFi and modern hot-water bathrooms. A ground-floor cafe offering fresh coffee, excellent fruit juices and Thai food is a good spot to chat with other travellers and the cool staff. Bicycles are available for free to guests, but you won't need them to get to Maharaj market directly across the street, or the riverfront just around the corner. The central location also means that you can expect some street noise.
