This is a traditional Chinese shophouse located in the heart of Chinatown, one of the most authentic neighborhoods in Bangkok. A district well known for still preserving its original essence and old traditions, if you are staying in my house you are bound to experience up close the charming old city life.

The space
My house is a traditional Chinese shophouse build almost 100 years ago by the immigrants who came to Thailand from Southern China from the mid-19th to the mid 20th centuries. Thanks to its adaptability, the Chjnese-style shophouse is one architecture design that is still being built today. The classic shophouse is divided in different levels, usually the ground floor open the interior to the street for use as business, such as a restaurant, a café or a fashion store while the upper levels are subdivided for residential units.

Located in the basement of the residential units there is a quiet cafe, "BAAN YOK", that opens from 9am to 6pm (Monday to Saturday only).

I have restored the building preserving as much as possible the original structure and decoration details. It is located in the heart of Chinatown neighborhood, a district well known for still preserving its original essence and old traditions of Bangkok. A quarter that has remained almost unchanged for years.

Soi Nana is undoubtedly one of the coolest places in the city, with trendy bars, cafes and galleries. A few steps away you’ll find Yaowarat Road, one of the favorite streets for anyone who loves street food, because this is where you will find those traditional Thai-Chinese old recipes you are willing to die for.

Besides that, Soi Nana is a very convenient location since it’s just 5 min walk away to the metro/train station (Hua Lamphong) and also not far from the ferry that cruises the Chao Phraya river up and down.

Guest access
This apartment is a duplex, with two bedrooms, a bathroom, terrace and a small space with a refrigerator and a hot water kettle.
The bathroom has a shower with hot water.
On the first floor there is a bedroom with two windows overlooking the main street. It has air conditioning. It has a double bed. It´s the red-coloured room.
The second floor has air conditioning and a double bed. From this room there is access to a large terrace. It´s the green-coloured one.

Other things to note
This is an old house with the inconveniences of the antiques but with the beauty of those.

This is not a hotel but a private house.

It has very steep stairs, which make this accommodation not suitable for the elderly or people with mobility difficulties .

This street is not a tourist street, many neighbors are long time residents who have spent their entire life living here.

I need them to feel good about my guests. It is necessary to make a normal life in the house without noise or trouble, no parties or similar.

The house is located in Chinatown, it’s a busy and lively area. On the night time is certainly quieter but sometimes it could be still a little bit noisy, especially for those with light sleep.

Bangkok, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Thailand

The house is located in the heart of Chinatown, one of the most authentic neighborhoods in Bangkok. A district well known for still preserving its original essence and old traditions, if you are staying in my house you are bound to experience up close the charming old city life.
Soi Nana, the street where my house is situated, is undoubtedly one of the trendiest places in the city, with cool bars, cafes and art spaces attracting many local visitors.

Apart from that, you will find many other interesting spots – including temples, markets, museums, etc- as well as other hidden-places to be found during the day – you can ask me when you get here!- and after sunset, definitely the best street food in town around Yaowarat Road, all within walking distance from the house.

Hello my name is Pupe, I am a Thai and my husband is Spanish. I live between Bangkok and Madrid. I love travel, decoration, fashion, plants and antiques. I can speak Thai, English and Spanish.
During your stay
I live very near the house, if you need something or have any problem you can tell me anytime.

I expect guests to be friendly, relaxed and open-minded people.
I don’t mind sharing time with my guests since I like to treat them as they were my friends.
I need guests to speak at least one of the languages that I’m able to speak (English, Spanish or Thai), otherwise the communication will be very difficult and we will not enjoy each other’s company.
