Opened in 2015, Pho Place Guest House has five floors of immaculate rooms set at the end of a quiet side lane off Yaowarat Road. The staff has a reputation for going above and beyond what’s expected to ensure that guests have a great stay in Chinatown.




Ganesha welcomes you.

The building doesn’t grab the eye from outside — wall-size ground-floor windows front a small concrete car park with plain white exterior walls looming above the neighbouring shophouses. One half of the ground floor is set aside as a common room with several tables and chairs on glossy white floors, a tour desk, a complimentary coffee/tea/water station, a couple of shared computers and some works of art created by a staff member. A small reception room occupies the other side, with a lift in between.

The minimalist theme continues in spotless rooms with key-card locks and watercolour paintings of Bangkok scenes adding splashes of indigo and blue to the cool white floors and grey trim. Soft beds with good-quality linens join desks, free WiFi, air-con, wide LCD TVs, fridges, safes that are large enough for a chunky laptop computer and attached balconies. Bathrooms aren’t huge but the hot-water showers are partitioned behind curtains.

Comfy, clean and quiet.

Multiple English-speaking staffers gave us a very pleasant welcome and were quick to show us a room. They offer detailed advice on exploring the area, and have even been known to lead guests to nearby attractions and cafes for free. You might even get a free lift to the train station. While the rooms represent solid value in the flashpacker range, the helpful and personable service is what lifts Pho Place above other options in this price range, like the Chinatown Hotel.

The guesthouse is at the end of Yaowarat Soi 7, an otherwise nondescript sidestreet that shoots west off the southern end of Yaowarat Road, just north of the Odean Gate and Kuan Im Shrine. It’s a welcome break from the traffic that chokes other parts of Chinatown. Wat Traimit is a five-minute stroll away, while the busier stretch of Yaowarat and Hualamphong Station can be reached after 10 minutes on foot, in either direction. The location is also convenient to the funky bars of Chinatown’s Soi Nana.

Pho Place is named after the street that it’s on, alternately known as Trok Pho. It’s not close to Wat Pho. If you stay here, don’t miss the terrific “stupid noodles” cooked up at Jay Ben’s pick-up truck kitchen, a three-minute walk from Pho Place.
