Tiny and very cute, Baanpordee has six attractively decorated rooms set in a garden down a quiet back soi in the centre of the Old City.

The guesthouse is directly opposite the more upmarket Chompor Lanna on Prapokklao Soi 12 which runs between Phrapokklao and Ratchaphakhinai Roads, so the location has the advantage of being smack bang in the centre of the Old City yet very quiet, with only minimal passing traffic.

Overall we reckon, without breakfast, Baanpordee is probably a couple of hundred baht over-priced but being very cute and with only six rooms to fill they also probably correctly reckon they can get away with it.

On entering you’ll see a small garden to your right and a small cafe and reception to the left. The constructions are two-storey and there’s a second communal seating area above the reception. Although breakfasts are not included, free tea and coffee is offered and communal areas are neat, tidy and agreeably decorated with some good quality furniture.

Rooms are behind the garden to the right with three up and three down. All have a table and chairs set out on communal balconies. Interiors are also neat, clean and tidy and care has also been taken with the decor. The room we saw was painted blue and with minimal frills but well-appointed enough with safe, fridge, (tiny) cable TV, ensuite hot showers and WiFi access.

Staff we met were friendly and helpful, with good levels of English. All things considered, Baanpordee is a very good address in the flashpacker range. The main drawback for us would be that with only six rooms you’d need to book well in advance during high season in order to ensure getting in at all.
