These beautiful heritage hotels are the best way to experience Bangkok

Lifestyle

Over in Chinatown, an elegant 1916 home that was owned by a well-to-do family in the Muslim community had spent the more recent past as a warehouse for Suksan Aueareechon and his export-import shoe business. Aueareechon thought the old warehouse deserved far better, and he had a dream to restore it and make a small boutique stay. Friends discouraged him from entering a business he had no background in, but he laughed them off, saying that if nobody came, he could always live in the place himself. He carried out a non-stop half-year renovation that resulted in a gorgeous heritage home, Baan 2459, full of fine wood, poster beds, period chandeliers and stylish angles at every turn.
