A fabulous location on the river with a water taxi stop right there. The rates are really reasonable and the place is safe and staffed with friendly helpful staff. Really a great find. The only thing was: We booked a 'serene corner with breakfast.' To them the word 'corner' meant a room that was on the side of the building, neither on the street or the river. This was odd, disconcerting and not a translation issue I learned, just making up a meaning. So that should be known. Otherwise, book it! The pool is great for kids and adults alike. It is a bit of an oasis right in the heart of Bangkok with easy access to many main draws.
Prós: Wonderful location, nice rooms and friendly, thoughtful staff available 24 hours. Rooftop pool with bar and food service was an added bonus! Good breakfast. A real gem for the money.
Contras: We booked a 'serene corner with breakfast.' To them the word 'corner' meant a room that was on the side of the building, neither on the street or the river. This was odd, disconcerting and not a translation issue I learned, just making up a meaning.
Contras: If you like noise, you can stay here, if you like a small room, you can stay here if you prefer dirty beds, you can stay here. High price, low value hotel, 2-star motel even better than they are.
Prós: Cool style, lots of food options and rooftop pool.
Contras: Khao San road is too busy, the road was very noisy and the doors were thin.
Prós: Boutique hotel in a great location. Locked luggage check was very nice feature.
Contras: Hotel facility and room are only 3 star rated
Prós: Great location and vicinity. Rooms basic but clean, and good en suite wet room.
Pool area very nice, with a good view
Contras: Pool water wasn't the cleanest, and greasy
Prós: Perfect location! Close to Khaosan Rd but far enough to still be quiet at night.
Contras: Harder for solo traveller to meet other travellers, very large hotel.
Prós: The roof-top pool was nice, decent breakfast buffet.
Contras: The staff was very unfriendly and rude, not helpful at all. Part of the hotel does not have elevator service. The first room they tried to stick me in was a 3rd floor noisy walk-up. The room looked old and unkept. I tried to get another room but the receptionist claimed all rooms were booked, (she was not professional at all). I decided I wanted my money back, but she said I had to pay for one full night if I canceled. I asked to speak to the manager who wasn't there. She called the manager and I told her I wasn't happy with the current situation. They finally found a small pint size room on the 5th floor with an elevator, but I still found the room to be old and tired looking (AC didn't work properly). I stayed the night and put up with lots of noise due to the bad acoustics in the hallway, and bathrooms that vent into the hallway which cause more noise, stink, and humidity. (I didn't get any type of compensation for moving into a smaller 1/4 of the size room) The next morning (2nd night) they moved me into a large room on the other side of the building, which I found clean. AC, TV worked fine. Unfortunately again the hallways were very noisy, other guests were loud. I would skip this place if your looking for a good nights sleep. Your definitely not going to get it unless you drink a case of beer. Cheers!
Prós: The location isn't bad if your young and wanting to drink/ party. Khao San road is literally right outside the hotel and there's always a happy hour going on and tons of restaurants.
Contras: Bed was as hard as a rock. I didn't get one good nights sleep the entire time I was there.
Front desk tried swindling me when I checked in, arguing that I didn't pay for my stay and that I needed to even though I had a confirmed email saying it was paid for in full.
Room smelled of stale smoke. Even the towels.
Wifi continuously booted us off and the password is only good for an hour or two max, so we had to continue going downstairs to grab a new one.
Ladies at front desk weren't helpful at all, with any questions that we had.
I wouldn't stay here again.
Prós: The staff was nice and the room was very cleen.
Contras: The room is much different then you can see in the pictures. They gave me very small room with noisy a/c. And the most rediculos thing is that they charg me more then what apeers in 'bokking.com' where I order the room.
Prós: Very close to Khao San Road but not noisy, good price, comfortable beds. Walking distance from many restaurants and stores.
Contras: Not the cleanest, bugs in the room, staff not friendly. Basically this place is a classic "you get what you pay for." The rooms are very basic but not the best, but the location is good and the price is a good value so this place is good for young travelers looking for a cheaper place to stay in the middle of a fun area.
Prós: I loved the location. I would definitely stay in that area. Close by all great parties and shopping. ..
Contras: They charged me for pillow cases and sheets after they took my deposit. Pissed me off
Prós: The pool has a great view and offers a wide range of drinks
Contras: the pool was a bit dirty, my room was right outside of construction, very basic, no thrills, no windows.
Contras: I didn't like the room, no hairdryer, old linen and towels, loudy air conditioner, reception wasn't friendly nor helpfull, no internet connection, my room was not cleaned during my stay. Definitely will never stay again or recommend to anybody as well.
Prós: Great location, pool on the roof and good service from staff.
