Close to the nightlife of Khao San Road and a walk to the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, very handy indeed. The room I had was very small, but cheap and great for one person. The hotel sits above a canal and if Khao San Road is not your thing, then cross the little foot bridge and go have a... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and were really happy with our choice. Previous reviews mention a bad smell (which we were prepared to cope with as the hotel is right next to water) but we didn't experience any. The room was spotless, bed comfy and the little bar next to water was a nice spot to relax... More

The hotel itself was very nice, good service, an ok restaurant, and great location, just down the street from Khoa San Road. The location provides for a quit night's sleep. The room was small, but clean, sunny and nicely decorated with a comfortable bed. However, thanks to the nearby canal, the sewage smells in and around the hotel aren't so... More

Despite the hotel being so close to Koah San Road, it was far enough away to feel like you have some respite. The hotel was a little hard to find as it is down a side street but this turned out just fine as it was away from the main road. Rooms were very clean, and the service was top... More

We stayed at this little hotel when we first arrived in Thailand and loved it so much we decided to book another week for our final stop. It's a very quiet hotel, and very close to the mess of Khao San road and all the tourists. Close to the Chao Phraya express boats, close to a ton of nice places... More

We were so impressed with this amazing little gem on our way to through Bangkok to Laos that we stayed again on our way home. Less than 5 minutes walk from Khao San Road, Korbua sits on a small, tranquil canal and is just far enough from the madness of tourist central to guarantee a restful nights sleep. Ignore the...

I spent 6 nights in Korbua and was generally very satisfied. The rooms are clean and functional. Only the mattresses are a little hard. The Hotel is not situated on any busy street and is therefore relatively quiet. Sometimes one can smell the odor of the river, but me personally felt it not as bad or annoying. The staff at... More

This is a quiet little hotel just blocks from Khao San Rd. The rooms a clean and the staff are very friendly. They helped us book our tours and arranged taxis for us. . We staid there last year everytime we were in Bangkok so of course booked it again for the start of our holiday. We were not disappointed.
