Most of you already know how much I completely fell for Bangkok. Part of the reason for that was our wonderful hosts, Pook and Nui at W Home Bangkok. If you are looking for a great hotel in Bangkok, look not further!
We arrived in Bangkok, after traveling for over 30 hours, around midnight. Pook was waiting up for us when we finally rolled in, sometime around 1:00AM, and already it was a breath of fresh air to see her smiling face after such a long journey.
W Home has 4 rooms and 2 bathrooms. The rooms are small, but very nicely appointed. The bed is honestly like heaven, and was, by far, the most comfortable one we slept on in Thailand. The shower has water pressure AND hot water (a novelty, we found). And the breakfasts were delicious, fresh and huge! They include a main course (pictured below is my half eaten Tom Kha Gai – coconut soup), fruit, coffee or tea, juice, and a sampling of local desserts (pictured at the top is one of my favorites, little coconut pancakes).
Pook and her husband Nui, became like friends to us while we were in Thailand. They walked us up to the River Taxi to show us the way our first time and provided a stellar (but simple) map highlighting all of the major Bangkok attractions. They truly want you to feel at home.
We wanted to get massages one day, so Nui walked us up to the local massage parlor and asked them to go easy on us (being our first Thai massage and all). It was roughly $4 per person for an hour, and was one of the best massages I’ve ever had!
Later that day, Dan and Nui ran up to get us all delicious street food for lunch.
They pointed us in the direction of the best pad thai we’ve ever had (right down the street from the guesthouse).
W Home’s location is also pretty great, away from the chaos and hustle of central Bangkok, tucked away in a more residential area so we felt we got a more authentic taste of Bangkok. It’s just a 5-10 minute walk from the River Taxi that will take you to most of the major attractions in the city. This stop is right before everyone else gets on, so you can actually get a seat if you want. It gets pretty crowded. Check out all these suckers having to stand!
On New Years Eve, they threw a little party for guests and staff. We all sat around the munching on sushi and glass noodle salad – It was so much fun!
When it was time to leave, Pook and Nui called us a cab (at 4:00AM), and we said our goodbyes. I truly hope to make it here again one day!! W Home Bangkok is one of the best accommodations we’ve ever stayed at.
