100-100/1 Phra Athit Road Chanasongkhram Pranakorn Bangkok Thailand
Thara House is conveniently located 10 minutes walk to the famous Khao San Road (backpackers haven), Grand Palace and Golden Reclining Buddha. Its location is much quieter compared to Khao San. There are few restaurants along the block which serve Western, Asian and of course Thai cuisine. A couple of 7-11s and some pubs that serve cheap Thai beers.
Phra Athit Boat Pier (Water transport along Chao Phraya River) is walking distance from Thara house. Just opposite to the guest house is a Bus stop which public buses plying in within Bangkok.
We just informed the receptionist of our email reservation then instantly provide us our room assignment. There’s a key deposit of 500 Baht upon check-in and refundable when checking out.

They handed over the key, AC and TV remote and WiFI password slip. We thought been assigned on the 5th floor (highest) was favorable but it’s not. They don’t have elevators, only a well polished shiny stair. We’d climbed up carrying our heavy backpacks till the top. A good exercise maybe.
A peek to our 600 Baht/night AC Double Room with Window. Our room was bit spacious for a guest house standard. We couldn’t stop comparing this room from our previous trips. This really was quite a steal. Thanks, Drew!
Our queen size bed paired with a clean smelled white comforter were modest nothing to shout about.The provided pillows were not too soft nor too hard, just enough to make our head comfortable.
A cleaned folded marooned towels were lying on the bed, that reminded us we’re not staying in a fancy hotel.
A pretty wooden closet, enough to hide our backpacks and vanity table with mirror accompanied with a cute wooden round stool.
The bathroom was quite acceptable and far better from a terrible experience we had in Fragrance Hotel Pearl in Singapore.
We’re didn’t expect seeing water heater in this guest house. Though the water pressure was bit weaker but still it’s functional (no pun intended).
The best thing about our room on the highest floor was the view irrespective what time of the day . It gave us two contrast paradigm of what Bangkok on day and night time.
One good thing about Thara House was their Internet Kiosk. We find it useful since we didn’t bring our laptop and thus able us to connect to the web without hurting our pocket. This kinda resembles of our pisonet in Philippines. You just have to insert 5 baht coins to use the PC’s for couple of minutes. Budget friendly and convenient.
One, that made Thara House wowed so many guests and travelers was their own ATM. It’s just located near the door in front of the guest house. How convenient and safe is that?
