Boutique hotel created from a historic Thai wooden house located directly on the river front. Each room is unique and has its own terrace overlooking the Chao Phraya river.

Built in 1973 this hotel has retained some charming features such the old style wooden check-in area and Chinese style wooden furniture in the lobby- some parts haven’t changed much since American soldiers were coming here during the Vietnam war.

T-Boutique Hostel

  • Walking distance from Station: 750 metres
  • Star Rating: 2 stars

Old school budget hostel given a modern make over. There are three room options: dormitory with 4 beds; twin room with bunk bed; or small double room. All rooms share bathrooms. This hostel does, however, have a shared kitchen facility, TV lounge, safety deposit box and free WiFi. For the price its a bargain. Renovated in 2014 the decor is clean and modern. The owner and staff have a reputation for being friendly and helpful. This is a good option for young travellers who want to meet other people and the budget conscious wanting a cheap over night stay.
