Kessara is the latest addition to the boutique hotels scene in Bangkok.
I remember seeing this abandoned house built in 1916 every time I was in Bangkok. Now a small luxury hotel, Kessara is a wonderful example of a traditional Thai architecture.
It’s located on a side street in Silom, one of the best areas in town and close to anything you will ever need – street food, sky train ( between Sala Daeng and Chong Nonsi stops), cool restaurants and bars, markets, atms, parks, malls.
Kessara is small and cosy. It has seven rooms named after two kinds of flowers: ancient flowers and flowers used in Royal ceremoneis. My favorites are Napaproud and Darapunnarai, they have a little balcony where you can sit and enjoy the view of the lush garden.
More than just a hotel, it feels like being in someone’s house. Two friendly cats are part of staff too and it’s easy to spot them browsing the common areas.
