This is Old Bangkok. A very small place with just a few rooms; ours was more than adequate. Walkable to National Museum and Wats and just down the street is one of the boat stops. Th Samsen is a neat street and Soi 5 is pretty quiet. The place has been owned by a family for a good while, I... More

This is one of my favourite hostels I've ever been to. All staffs made me feel very comfortable by giving an overview of all the attractions in the area and the places I should avoid. Our favourite part of our stay was sharing coffee with our gracious hosts after enjoying a traditional Thai tasty food. Thank you for a lovely... More

From everything that I read about Samsen 5 Lodge online, I was really excited to stay there. However, I was sincerely disappointed with my experience. There was no one to greet us when we arrived and the outside door to the B&B was locked. We had arrived a little late but even after the owner of the shop next door... More

A wonderful stay, with beautiful personalized rooms and an attentive staff. A delicious breakfast, beautiful artwork. Perhaps the only downside is a bit of noise during the day (music, voices, television), thanks to how integrated the hotel is in the neighborhood, but this didn't bother me. Make sure to check out the magical "Sabah" restaurant, a couple of blocks down... More

I stay in Samsen 5 Lodge for 3 days back in May. The hotel is great and the location is just greater. It is in walking distance to almost all tourist attractions in old Bangkok but it is also in old community area. The hotel is known for its environmental friendly character. I stay in a room with a view... More

We really enjoyed our 2-day stay at the Samsen 5 Lodge. The inn is small and cozy with clean, comfortable rooms and a friendly staff. We were drawn by the location and price, and Samsen certainly delivered on both. It is a 10-minute walk from Khao San Road, and on this walk, you will pass several nice restaurants and a... More

We had a short stay but impress with this place. Wonderful experience staying in a heritage decoration preserved shophouse. Friendly owner makes the stay even better! Definitely to use the hotel again if we have a chance.

We had just one night, a stop over between Burma and home to the UK and what a memorable stay! Not just a great (and quiet!) situation for accessing the sights; a characterful room and delicious 'local' breakfast but also amazing help in sourcing silk and a tailor to make up a nightshirt in the few hours we had.

Excellent experience in Samsen 5 Lodge! We stayed in Room 1 - the biggest one with China style, and it was comfortable for 3 persons (with extra bed). This was my mother's first trip to oversea and she liked this lodge quite a lot. The lodge only had 3 rooms, small but very nice! Meanwhile, the host was quite friendly... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
