Set in a quiet but convenient spot off Sukhumvit, MHC Guesthouse is an affordable choice for families, couples and solo travellers wanting to avoid the big, impersonal hotels without sacrificing comfort. If you have a passion for aviation, the pilot owner will happily show you around his model airplane collection.

With plain white walls, tinted windows and a few potted plants on a tiny front stoop, the nondescript guesthouse doesn’t look like much from the outside. But once a very friendly woman buzzed us inside, the brown-and-white checkered floors, cluttered bar, old teakwood furnishings and dozens of model airplanes made it clear that this place has some character — in a rather charming Grandpa’s basement sort of way.

Stepping up the narrow wooden stairs, we were shown a double room with enough space to “construct” a pretend runway for one of those model 747s. A comfy queen-size bed stretched under a framed photo of another airplane, with a large window, ceiling fan, air-con, TV, mini-fridge, bureau and safe giving you some obstacles to pilot around. We found the spotless hot-water bathroom with partitioned shower to be considerably better than what you’ll often find in this price range, at least around Sukhumvit.

Quick look at a double room.

The only thing lacking is a desk.

MHC also offers a single room similarly well equipped but with no windows. Budget-minded families will appreciate the superior editions that comfortably sleep three and can accommodate more if requested. Each room is a little different than the next, but all come with newish air-con units and WiFi that works. The guesthouse has an excellent reputation and limited space, so booking ahead is recommended in high season.

The staff member that we met clearly cares about her guests and the establishment itself; she patiently told a guest how to get somewhere in the city as we left. We’ve also heard that, if you book ahead, the owner goes the extra mile to provide detailed instructions on how to find the guesthouse, the best way to come from the airport and things to watch out for. You won’t often get service like that from bigger hotels.

Cyclists also welcome.

MHC is located on quiet Sukhumvit Soi 28, a few steps from Sukhumvit Road itself and a five-minute walk to Phrom Phong BTS Station. Many expats live in this area and you’ll find all sorts of interesting dining and drinking options. Dasa book shop, Emporium shopping mall and Benchasiri Park are all within easy walking distance.

If you’re in the market for a small and cheapish guesthouse around Sukhumvit, you might also consider nearby Hotel California and Padi Madi, both solid options with some cheaper rooms available.
