Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Old Capital Bike Inn has character, location and a terrific English speaking owner and staff who work hard to provide great service and any information you require to help you find and get to sites and restaurants. The draw of the Inn is than it is a lovely old building, however be aware that the rooms are small and ours lacked sunlight. Although a premium room (the garden suite) it had a skylight over a planter area, and a window looked at a wall. Bangkok is very hot and there are many fabulous things to see, however we found we were a bit restricted by the heat (in January) and frequently returned to our hotel room, so we were aware of any shortcomings (a curtain in lieu of a door to the bathroom). Perhaps a larger room with a view would have been preferable, but then we would never have experienced the wonderful character and charm of the old Inn. I feel that their price point is a little high compared to the other offerings close by that provide more amenities such as a window/view, restaurant and pool. Like many things - it's all a trade-off.

My husband and I stayed at Old Capital Bike Inn at the very end of our honeymoon in Thailand/Vietnam. We have nothing but compliments about the space, food and staff. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, and breakfast delicious. The staff is so kind and helpful- they went out of their way to make take away breakfast for us for our 4am departure, give us a chilled bottle of Prosecco for our honeymoon and make sure we always have more than enough fresh/clean water. We went on the night time bike tour and it was amazing - we learned so much and saw areas of the city we would have otherwise missed. This is one of the best bnb/hotel stays we’ve ever had. Do not miss the opportunity to visit old capital bike inn on your next trip to Bangkok!!

We stayed in a quiet, beautifully teak-decorated room with a serene upstairs bedroom/loft. From the moment we arrived, hot and tired and a bit anxious from our long flight from New York, we were put at our ease, with a lovely welcome. Each morning's breakfast was lavish, with a fruit plate, tiny hot sweet donuts, and a main dish (waffles, eggs). The best aspect of all was that we were asked about our plans for the day and given many superb, insider suggestions of what to do. The host and hostesses were very caring, even going down the street to make sure we rendezvoused with our Grabcar driver (they also explained to us about using the app Grabcar). I was sad to leave and would definitely stay here again.

What a beautiful little gem in Bangkok‘s old town. The decor in the rooms is amazing, I noticed a new detail every day. It‘s very clean and the location is great to explore the old town (the free bike tour they offer is perfect to give you an idea on what to see). I loved that they try to reduce plastic by offering filtered water in glas bottles.
What really makes this place, however, is the staff. They go above and beyond to ensure you have the best time in Bangkok. My mom and I really enjoyed our stay here - thank you!

We really liked this cute boutique hotel. The hotel impressively blends old-world charm with modern touches, so there's no sacrifice in comfort. We were especially impressed with the a la carte breakfast options, and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The location was tucked away on a quiet street, but still an easy walk to key cultural sights and good restaurants.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this quaint, convenient hotel. The hotel is nestled on a quiet side street yet in easy walking distance to public transportation and historic sights in the area such as the Grand Palace. The welcoming, helpful staff is what truly made our stay exceptional. They recommended restaurants and sights that we may have otherwise overlooked. For example, they recommended the Museum of Siam which was an interactive, informative museum dedicated to exploring Thai culture, The included breakfast was delicious, and the rooms were impeccably clean and comfortable. We were able to store our luggage at the hotel until we had to catch a late flight home which allowed us to spend even more time exploring the city. If you want a high rise, impersonal hotel, this is not that place. However, if you are looking for comfort, service, and local advice to explore new restaurants and places that you might otherwise may not find on your own, Old Capital Bike Inn will exceed your expectations.

The Old Capital Bike gets a 5 star review in every category. From the time we walked in until our checkout everything was beyond expectations. The decor is fabulous, the rooms comfortable and kitschy without sacrificing any necessary elements that make up a great hotel room. The location made it easy for us to get to everything we wanted to see and the front desk most helpful when we had a question.

This is a great boutique residence in the heart of the old town that exudes charm and individuality. It stands out from the crowd. As a family business it's friendly, intimate and there is a great attention to detail in the furnishings and style. The breakfasts are great and the hosts offer knowledgable and useful information to help you get the best out of your visit. Highly recommended.

We stayed here twice in January. The first time for 2 nights in a garden suite and the second time in a cheaper (and much better) room on the first floor. This lovely little hotel is in a perfect location, the staff are kind and helpful and the breakfast very good. However, we found the layout of the garden suite annoying... the outside space was monopolised by a freestanding bath that I suspect is rarely used and the washbasin in the bathroom was so high that I could barely use it. With a little thought, we feel the space could have been better utilised. Although our first-floor room was smaller, we had more floor space and we much preferred it.

Thank you so much for taking time to share your thoughts of your stay here. The decor and facilities of each room in our inn is rather different, which caters to different preferences of different guests. But we're glad you found a room more to your liking on the second part of your stay and managed to have a pleasant time. We hope you will still think of us on your return trip to Bangkok in the future. There are still many other room types which may be to your liking :) Please take care for now and see you again hopefully! Warm regards, Jason, Nantiya and OCBI team

First of all I will preface this by saying that during our stay there was extensive construction outside of the hotel, however, Jason gave us ample notice via email and gave us the option to cancel so we could avoid the noise. This was so gracious, and we ultimately decided to keep our original plans and stay at The Old Capital Bike Inn. With the garden suite, we were tucked into the back of the building, and the noise was not heard at all! It was truly a cozy escape from the bustling sound of the city. The room itself was very decorated like a cozy English Inn, with lovely little touches like antique hooks. The bed was super comfortable, and all the amenities were helpful and appreciated. The staff was so welcoming and helpful- there was a complimentary drink and snack upon arrival, and cute little gifts on our bed. They invited us on a free night bike tour (which I highly recommend!), and gave us the best tips to enjoy our 1 full day in Bangkok. The location itself is great for those who want access to Khao San Road but don't want to be right in the middle of it, and there are delicious street food vendors nearby. We loved our stay at this Inn, and when we return to Bangkok, we will definitely stay here again!
