With respect to previous reviews with top ratings this guesthouse is far too expensive. The rooms are dark and small. Bare concrete walls, floor and ceilings remind me of a prison cell. Clean bathroom albeit a large cockcroach staring at me when I took a shower. No breakfast makes it a bad bet. Checked out the next day and went... More

A good location close to Bangkok's main touristic attractions, that we have reached by foot after a pleasant walk along the river. The hotel is of a good quality price, with a minimalist and elegant decoration in the rooms. Do not miss the rooftop upstairs !

Good location, a few blocks from Khao San Road. Helpful staff to help book train tickets. Clean rooms, very minimalist with concrete floors and walls but just fine! Easy to get to river ferry. Overall good place with wicked old school lift!

I stayed there for four nights. We did a reservation and as we came by night bus they let us drop our luggage and relax until 10am to check-in (usually check-in time is at 2pm). The check-in went smoothly. The room was tiny, it was pretty much a bed and a good bathroom (hot water, spacious, free soap and shampoo,... More

Hotel staff were great. I bought a phone and it was all in Thai script but the receptionist figured out how to switch it to English. The rooms were good for the cheap rate. Beds are a little stiff, no a/c, and small rooms, but they were clean. Just an fyi, a taxi to this hotel from either airport should... More

I wanted to stay hire while visiting Bangkok, but I canceled my reservation after I have seen the room. The room was right next to the elevator and really noisy and the floor and the toilets were really noisy. The manager was not comprehensive, I had to pay one night for canceling.

The rooms are really great, and the staff is super helpful. I got my reservation mixed up, and they helped me anyway, no problem. Location is good too, charming neighborhood and 5 min walk from Khao San Road. However, the rooftop terrasse is a party place until 1 am, and the noise kept me awake every night. I tried going...

i made a booking through the hotels website 2 weeks before out stay. Upon arrival we were told that the people in our room had not checked out and had gone out for the day, so they didn't have a room for us. Ok so double bookings may happen but they could have emailed us earlier in the day to... More

To be honest the location is quite nice (khaosan), rooms are tiny and have no space for storage but the staff was horrible. As many will know entering Cambodia from Thailand can be bith annoying and frustrating. A lot of companies just try to make money. This was the reason why we booked bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap at... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and although were rarely in the room, we slept well in them and the showers were decent. The location is great, no more than a 5 minute walk from Khao San Road so close enough to be on it yet far enough away from the noise for a good nights sleep. Theres a 7/11... More
