Loy La Long

Top choice hotel in Chinatown

Rustic, retro, charming: the six rooms in this 100-year-old wooden house can lay claim to more than their fair share of personality. United by a unique location elevated over Mae Nam Chao Phraya, it's also privy to a hidden, almost secret, feel.

The only hitch is in finding it; to get here proceed to Th Songwat and cut through Wat Patumkongka Rachaworawiharn to the river.
