We stayed in a superior room, which had its own sitting area. The room was spacious and quite clean. The hotel is situated in a rather quiet street near the main tourist attractions and night market. Overall, it was okay, but then again, for 1200 baht you'd expect as much, esp. in Thailand.
Staying here will give you an idea how living in a traditional house is (was) like. The bedroom had a very high instep and the wooden door was massive and creaky - waking up just about everyone at night for a trip to the loo. The bathroom, although private, is on the ground floor while the room itself is in the first floor. This is a hassle for nightly bathroom trips, esp. since the noisy bedroom door wakes everyone up.
This hotel looks very good and posh at first site, with period fan and furniture. You'll find very quickly, however, that the nice looking wooden love seat and chairs are bloody uncomfortable after sitting in them for more than 15 minutes. The hotel could also do with a lick of paint. To become a true niche or boutique hotel, a lick of paint or rather varnish would be welcomed and give it that extra touch.
The garden around the house is peaceful, but it could have been made into a nice little park. Now it's just there to look at, undeveloped. The self-service breakfast is adequate, if you don't bump your head into one of the low beams to be found just about everywhere. Duck if you're over 5'6''!
Rickety bicycles are for rent at 50 baht a day. These are invaluable to explore the nearby temple sites. This place can't be seen on foot as it's too big. Tuktuks are another alternative.
