“Arriving to Bangkok felt overwhelming in many ways. So many new impressions, people, scents and the ever chaotic traffic. Staying at Loy La Long Hotel was like staying in an oasis of peace and felt like a great start of our Thai adventure.”
Finding Loy La Long was like finding a hidden treasure. Crowded streets led us to a beautiful temple, which was actually the entrance to Loy La Long. Still feeling overwhelmed by all the impressions of the city, we knocked on the entry door that was hidden in a tiny oasis of green. We were welcomed by the nicest hostess who showed us around the small but charming hotel. A refreshing and very much needed lemongrass ice tea was served as a welcome drink.
Loy La Long is a small but unique hotel with seven rooms. All the rooms have their own color theme and are beautifully decorated in their own way. Not one room looks alike, but in a certain way everything’s matches perfectly. The old teakwood building, that used to function as a warehouse for rice back in the old days, gives the whole place a charming vibe. During our stay we slept in the Blue room, which has it’s own private balcony on the riverside. If your room doesn’t have a balcony, there’s plenty room to sit on the comfortable pillow-chairs on one of the two terraces, which have a beautiful view on the river.
Loy La Long is located near China Town in Bangkok and is right around the corner of Banglamphu (a nice backpackers area). It is very close to the train station (Hua Lamphong) which makes a good connection to the airport!
