Hidden on a small residential street in the Old City, this quaint four-story hotel abuts the Chao Phraya River and has an open lobby with views of Wat Arun, the 19th-century Temple of the Dawn. The four guest rooms combine Asian and European design styles to relaxed yet elegant effect: futon beds and French doors, dark wood floors and white-paneled walls, botanical prints and traditional Thai cushions. In the only suite, yards of diaphanous curtains frame a wide private terrace lined with pots of palms. Wake up early for a picture-perfect sunrise over the spires of Wat Arun.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
