Bangkok has a rocky history of preserving historic buildings, especially theaters. Thankfully, this 100-year-old theater (which started as a casino, with an infamous all-male opera troupe) reopened in 2018 as a stylish, affordable place to bed down for a few nights. It has a range of room types: private suites, family rooms with shared bathrooms and communal rooms with different bed configurations (some are for women only). The latter are a little less “hostel-like” than usual, thanks to curtained-off mini-rooms in some, and pod-type lodgings in others. And because of high ceilings, lots of light, and nicer-than-most bathrooms all digs are very pleasant. The “box office” area is now a vibrant living room with quirky décor, a bar and film screenings. The staff is topnotch. The hotel is steps from famous street food stalls, like Jok Prince, the place for a congee breakfast.
