Small wood houses with lawns, trees and flowers are almost unheard of in central Bangkok today, yet in an area otherwise defined by concrete lots and high-rise buildings, The Bangkokians Garden Home makes it possible to enjoy a patch of greenery along with well-equipped rooms for less than 1,000 baht a night.

Located on a narrow lane just off busy Ratchaprarop Road, the guesthouse greets you with pink flowers and an array of broad trees and palms spread over a lawn that’s large enough for a game of catch. A small outdoor chill space has places to sit and read or compete at a ping-pong table. Several more common areas are found in the main house, including tables on terraces and a large furnished living room. The gingerbread eaves and old-style shutters echo a Bangkok of a bygone era, while the nearby Baiyoke Tower II reminds guests that they’re hanging out in the heart of a modern megacity.

A total of 13 rooms are available in a few different guesthouses surrounding the main house, including several relying on shared hot-water bathrooms and others with ensuite wet bathrooms that are only slightly more expensive. Available with up to four beds on teak frames, all rooms come with air-con, TVs, fridges, windows, free WiFi and hardwood floors. Though lacking decoration on the white walls, the room that we inspected appeared well kept. Each room is a bit different from the next so you might ask to see a few.

The Bangkokians is the sister property of Hotel de Bangkok, a more straightforward hotel with clean air-con rooms starting at 1,500 baht. It’s located no more than 50 metres further up the soi and offers a breakfast buffet for 140-baht per person. When we stopped by at The Bangkokians, a couple of friendly guys who spoke limited English showed us a room before leading us to Hotel de Bangkok’s reception desk for more info.

So much space. So much green.

The strategic location places you within a 10-minute walk of Pratunam’s budget shopping and the Ratchaprarop Airport Rail Link station, which makes this an easy option if coming from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Cross Ratchaprarop via a pedestrian bridge and you’ll be around the corner from a bunch of great food and nightlife on Rangnam Road, from where it’s a 10-minute stroll to Victory Monument BTS station.

The single-night rates that we were quoted as walk-ins were slightly lower than what we saw online, but considerable discounts were offered for stays of three to five nights through the guesthouse’s website.
