I stayed at Fortville a few times during my trip to Thailand and each time was wonderful, especially compared to other budget options in the same neighborhood. The staff are lovely and quite helpful. The rooms are minimal and a bit small, but perfect for a single traveller or couple who will only be in to shower, sleep, and relax... More

Fortville was a basic guesthouse but was great value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful, helping us sort out taxis etc.. There is a rooftop bar which was a nice area to sit in but sadly didn't have any nice views to look out over. The guesthouse was only a 10 minute walk from Khao San road... More

The staff is very helpful and caring. Rooms are clean and AC works fine. The problem is the noise: expect to have loud music coming from the rooftop bar until 1am and constant shouting in the halls from people accessing or leaving the bar. It's a shame: whitout the noise it would be a perfect place to stay in Bangkok.

I have stayed at this hotel often over the last few years and I must say I am always content here. The staff are happy and helpful, the room is always clean (although a bit small) and the locations simply sets it apart. I am close to the travelers gathering point of Khoa San Road yet not within this all... More

Stayed here for first 3 nights in Thailand after arriving from Bangkok airport. Great location, 5 minute walk from Khao San road, 7eleven opposite and 5 minute walk from ferry stop which will get you to all the main places for 15 baht a journey. Room was nice, simple with double bed (low on the floor but not a problem).... More

Despite its unique concept, the stay with Fortville Guesthouse was pretty average. My bf and I opted for the Deluxe Balcony Room, expecting a decent balcony to hang around. However, to our disappointment, the space was dirty and the wooden chairs available were too broken to be used. The room itself was clean though the bed was kind of hard... More

Five minute walk too khao san road, 500baht deposit for key, and a slightly higher minibus charge to BKK. Other than that, very good showers. Very clean and well priced. Compared to other places we stayed, our favourite by some distance.

Nice guesthouse very close to Khaosan Rd. I stayed with my boyfriend and we both liked the interior design although it may not be to everyone's taste. Our room was quiet although we were on the second floor away from the rooftop bar. The only negatives would be that the bed was very hard and there wasn't any storage room.... More

On arrival, I was really in love with the sourroundings. Very calm and fresh. It has a cafe down below the guesthouse. The staffs are really nice. The lobby is small but very good-looking. And oh, the elevator is just different, not a modern one, but the one with manual slide.. The only thing I hate is the room's scent,... More

They have a computer in the lobby for free use which was very convenient as well as free wi-fi that worked in the room. Very friendly, helpful staff that let us store our bags safely when we were waiting for an overnight train. Clean rooms with towels provided, and also cleaning service if requested. AC available and worked great. Noisy... More
