Concierge.com's insider take:

A bit of Vermont in the shadow of the Grand Palace? Nantiya Tuliyanont, the friendly, globe-trotting owner of Bangkok's first true B&B, welcomes arriving guests with homemade sweets, and the eight rooms each have their own thoughtful details—a private garden with hand-sculpted tub in the Rose suite, intricate wrought-iron fixtures in the Rice room. But this is no throwback: There are flat-screen TVs, powerful showers with solar-heated water, and free Wi-Fi and computers in each room (something the inn's more luxurious competitors don't provide). But the key here is the personal touch: Breakfast—rice-flour hotcakes doused in sweet coconut—is made on an old-fashioned charcoal stove, and Jirayu "Joey" Tuliyanont will personally escort you on a nightlife tour of nearby hippie-chic Khao San Road. One of the few green hotels in Bangkok, the inn has sensors that shut down lights and appliances when guests leave their rooms, and all water is heated with solar energy. The owners share this sense of social responsibility with guests, offering them the opportunity on their bill to make contributions (matched by the hotel) to one of four charities focused on animals and children at risk.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Bangkok's first true B&B, the eight-room Old Bangkok Inn is run by a warm, well-traveled proprietress and her son, who guides guests to the hippie-chic nightlife along Khao San Road. There are four room types, each with its own charm: The bath products in Rice make the best souvenirs, Lemongrass comes with an enchanting tropical garden, Jasmine has painted murals, and Orchid a four-poster bed. Wi-Fi access, AC, and powerful showers in the bathrooms make travelers wonder if they've set foot in an urban myth of clean, charming, and affordable accommodations. Guests can augment the inexpensive room rate with a small contribution, matched by the hotel, to four worthy charities. —2006 Hot List

When to go: July and August, when tropical fruits such as mangosteen are plentiful.

Which room to book: Hanging oil lamps and rose-colored walls add to Orchid's romantic ambience (doubles, $103–$129).
