does anyone know the guest house called Bangkok house?
It's placed at 210 soi samsen 1 phranakorn bangkok.
Is it in a good area? Is it near the centre?

I'm sorry but I don't know where that Guest House is but I do know Bangkok quite well.
There is no actual 'centre' to Bangkok so I will assume that you want to know if it is near Khao San Road with all of the backpacker hovels, The Grand Palace, Wat Pho and the Chao Phraya River. The answer is yes. Is it in a good area? Debatable, but you probably won't find cheaper accommodation anywhere else.

I know it. Samsen Soi 1 is very close to Klong Banglamphoo (Banglamphoo Canal). From the top of KSR (at the police station and across the road from the temple), turn right and walk north along Chakhraphong, through the intersection at Phra Athit, over the canal, and then turn left onto Soi 1. It is signed. Don't take the pathway that runs along the river because that is not Soi 1. Odd numbered roadways leading off Samsen are on the Chao Phraya River side of the road (the west side).
I agree ... it IS a good area. Close to the river, walking distance to the main temples, etc., and some great spots to eat.
