Chakrabongse Villas

396 Maharaj Rd., Bangkok, 10200, Thailand

On the banks of the Chao Phraya River in an old part of the city, these traditional Thai houses were originally built up-country and then transported to the grounds of the Chakrabongse House, which was built in 1908. They may be the best rooms in the city—the problem is there are only four, and the place is very popular, so you must book well in advance. There are also three less expensive bed-and-breakfast rooms designed in a Moroccan style. The Riverside Villa and Garden Suite each offer more space and better views—the villa has a view of Wat Arun from the bedroom—but the Thai House is singularly beautiful. There's a sala next to the river for guests to enjoy. Thai meals are served here upon request. A minimum two-night stay is preferred.
