Had 1 night at Sam Sen Sam. We arrived at 8am and had a warn welcome by frontdesk and the room was ready and ready for use. Room was clean and with good a/c and so were the shared bathrooms. Next day we had to catch the train to Chiang Mai at 7pm, so we left out luggage in shared... More

A short walk away from backpacker central, Sam Sen Sam Place was a great retreat from all the noise and sleaze of Khao San Road. We tried a fan room the 1st night which is set upstairs in the old gorgeous wooden building, the room was simple but clean with a clean and fairly modern shared bathroom down the hall.... More

I've stayed at Sam Sen Place the last few times I've been to Bangkok. It's a friendly and welcoming place located in an intersting pocket of Bangkok called Banglumpoo- Phanakorn. This quirky pocket is home to a colourful collection of eating options and bars. But it's far from overwhelming. There's a laid back feel to this neighbourhood. A quasi village... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is a really cute hotel, about 10 minute walk from Khao San Road so great if you want to get away from the noise at night but enjoy the shopping and bars etc in the evening. Our room was quite small but fine for a couple of days. It had a nice big... More

I stayed in one of the larger rooms with my boyfriend. We were only there for one night but enjoyed the hotel. Good WIFI, decor, & staff. Large room. Very good air conditioning. Only one complaint, the beds are really hard, and really squeaky. It's hard to have a romantic night with the bed squeaking so much. Otherwise I enjoyed... More

Clean, quiet room. Hotel was walking distance to Khao San Road and Golden Palace. Staff were helpful - especially when telling us to ignore scams by seemingly nice Thais! Lovely breakfast made to order.

We stayed at Sam Sen Sam Place for 3 nights while we were in Bangkok. It was very clean, tidy, quiet and the staff were really helpful. It was located in a quiet street off a main road and was only a 10 minute walk to Khao San Road. The free breakfast was fine and guests ate in a sweet... More

We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. It is close to Khao San road without the noise and people. The staff were really helpful, and the room and bathroom were very clean. The breakfast was good as well, with a selection of fresh fruit. The free wifi was also a bonus.

Yep, great. Just do it. There are heaps of hotels in this price range and it's difficult to pick. Usually the bathrooms are where the issue is. (They can be pretty scummy). This one is really good. Seriously good bathroom. :)

This place is close enough to khao san and the express boats to get to any of the major attractions easily, and is super clean. Staff was very nice, even upgrading our room for free just because it was our honeymoon. Would definitely recommend if you're looking to be in this neighborhood and dont want to be on a noisy...
