This exquisitely renovated heritage hotel was originally a 1960s publishing factory that belonged to owner Panida "Oum" Tosnaitada's grandparents, and was the site of the popular Bangkok Weekly magazine, in an age prior to the internet and mobile phone. Tosnaitada has painstakingly restored the residence into a lovely city escape, mixing industrial chic with antique furniture, furnished wood floors, and a large collection of her family's tools of the trade, from typewriters to printing plates, original spools of print paper, and other relics.
Lovers of the old and refined will feel right at home here, without having to be deprived of anything modern, as rooms come with fast-working WiFi, Nespresso makers, and TVs stocked with Netflix and Amazon Prime connections. There's also a lovely rooftop jacuzzi to relax in, plus a library full of games, arthouse film DVDs, and even a vintage pinball machine that is still in working order.
There are only eight rooms here, and the attentive staff ensure an intimate and personalized stay, going out of their way to point out all of the nearby Old Town attractions, which range from the views atop the Golden Mount to eating Michelin-starred street food at Jay Fai. It's a unique and welcome departure from the often generic hotels that line Sukhumvit and Silom, and an ode to the rapidly disappearing Bangkok of old.
