24 Samsen Heritage Guest House

For nostalgia lovers, this hidden gem in a quiet residential area of Dusit district is a delightful find. Built in 1932, it was the home of Lt Gen Phra Silapasatrakhom, former chief of the Royal Thai Aide-De-Camp Department. The well-preserved two-storied wooden house, which has only four rooms for guests, is like a hideaway that could only be reached by a time machine.
