This accomodation has a really good value for money, situated in the center of the city near the Santichay Prakam Park and Chaopraya river on Samsen soi 1. I stayed on the first floor because single rooms are only there for 200 baht per night but unfortunately without windows and AC. Toilets and showers are common near there. Sometimes pretty... More

Strange the man that booked me in was a nice sort of fellow. I did not experience any nastiness. The room was B200 with use of a community line of showers and toilets. My only complaint about these was that there was no place to hang clothes in the showers. The bed was hard. The Wi Fi was B30 an... More

Come to this guesthouse if you are not sensible to ignorance and rude people...otherwise you are better of with the twins around the corner. Only good thing to say is the tidyness of the rooms. Atmosphere has gone because the owner transformed this place a moneymaking machine instead of staying the family guesthouse that it once was. Sad!

This is always a lovely place to stay in Bangkok. It's in a quiet Soi near the river, and just far enough away from craziness of Khao San Road to be peaceful. The guesthouse is a converted traditional Thai house and the family that runs it has lived there for several generations. You can still see the odd picture and... More

I've been staying this family run guesthouse more than 10 years. If you are not looking luxury strongly recommend this guesthouse. Great location near the Chao Praya river. 3 mins walking distence from pier. Less than bus stop. Affordable prices when you compare others around.

We stayed here as it was cheap and recommended. From the moment we got there to leaving we never felt welcome in the place. It was perfectly clean and tidy and of you want any simple help or advise for the area don't bother asking. We even had a tour booked and when the collection was 30 mins late we... More

All you hear about this place is relatively accurate, except I think I have figured out the terrible discontent with which the Individual who runs this wonderfully located, spacious, and fair priced rooms in this most intriguing place...you will notice a black and white picture of an old lady near on top of the fridges, just look at her closely,...
