If it weren’t for the sign along the main road, arriving would feel like coming up to a normal concrete house and asking to stay. A young guy didn’t even look up from his smartphone in the ground-floor laundry and reception area when we arrived, though a friendly older woman appeared quickly and was happy to show us around. The few rooms have at least a partial view of the Chao Phraya through wide glass windows visible from bed. Otherwise they’re simply done with firm beds raised over tile floors, TVs, air-con, mini-fridges, free WiFi and hot-water wet bathrooms. The ground-floor “reception” area was dirty, but rooms appeared clean. There’s a common terrace upstairs and a string of tables set up along the riverbank.

The owner speaks minimal English and may come off as brusque at first, but we’ve always found her to be a good host. While she rents out bicycles for exploring the Historical Park, which is a 10-minute ride to the north, the place is best suited to self-sufficient travellers. The family has a second location -- Ban Bua House 1 -- that offers similar prices and accommodation but is more isolated out on the west side of the river. Note that Ban Bua Homestay is also known as Ban Bua House 2.
