The eight-room hotel blends 21st-century luxury with a touch of nostalgia.

This unusually themed property in the Thai capital’s Old Town area literally and figuratively sits between the grand riverside luxury hotels and the hip, small-scale boutique lodgings popping up in Chinatown just a few blocks away. Housed inside an old printing factory on historical Lan Luang Road, the eight-room hotel blends 21st-century luxury with a touch of nostalgia. The lobby doubles as a museum preserving the history of the owner’s family publishing business, with vintage typewriters, antique printing blocks, and kooky keepsakes all sourced from the family archives. Rooms are charming and well-appointed with thoughtful touches like Marshall speakers and incredibly comfy micro-gel mattress toppers. On the top floor, the lush rooftop garden is a welcome retreat after a day spent exploring the Old Town. Here, guests are invited to soak away their aches in the greenery-clad Jacuzzi, or pour themselves a cup of tea and relax with a magazine in the annexed library: staying true to its theme, the hotel stocks a wide range of travel and lifestyle publications. The only thing missing is an on-site restaurant, but local favorites like the cozy lunchroom Eden’s and Mediterranean-inspired venue Seven Spoons are just a short walk away.
