A father, mother and son who are all effusively friendly run Grandmom Place, keeping the genuine Thai smile alive as it sadly becomes harder to come by in many popular destinations.

Photo of Grandmom Place
Two spacious and immaculate rooms are set on all three upper floors of this remodelled building that puts you within a five-minute stroll of downtown and the riverfront. Designed for optimal comfort rather than style, all rooms are outfitted with plush queen-size beds on tan tile floors, larger-than-normal fridges, LCD TVs, air-con, desks, private terraces and large hot-water bathrooms with rain showers. Front rooms get you great views over the river and all the way to Khao Kanab Nam and beyond, though some of the traffic noise does seep in, so go for a back-facing room if that bothers you. Free WiFi works well throughout the building, and we were given a 100 baht per night discount for a three-night stay. Immediately next door, U Residence is another very comfortable flashpacker choice set in an identical building (actually the two buildings connect), but there you pay around 500 baht more for a boutique-y design that doesn’t get you any extra comforts.
