The return to the joys of childhood has never been as pleasant as in this amazing guesthouse, reinvented in a former public school in the heart of the city. At the foot of a verdant alley, you will discover old classrooms converted into bohemian decorated bedrooms teeming with antiques reminiscent of the kitsch and colourful Bangkok of the 1950s.
The school courtyard, now a shimmering garden, is a restful haven during the day. Go there for the marvellous breakfast, one of the best in the city, served on a multitude of wooden carts full of pancakes and homemade breads, fresh fruit picked in the garden, sushi, and freshly squeezed juice. It feels like you're in a small village, surrounded by regular customers, in a family atmosphere, with loads of games in the courtyard and pushchairs for the toddlers.
