Neat rooms with balcony, flatscreen and large douche. We had a deluxe room with view on the canal. We spotted at least 10 water varans per day in the canal from the balcony! The kids loved it! From large ones 3m long as tiny ones 30cm long. Very good located close to Rambuttri Road and Khao San Road. Wat Bowonniwet... More

I'll start with the positives. Clean, tidy, friendly staff, comfortable, very modern bathroom, and then the big selling point for me, the location was absolutely perfect. Now for the issue. It stank rotten for 3 nights! Like most people here, I too looked at these reviews and made the decision to book the hotel on the basis it was well... More

We stayed at Korbua House at the start of our holiday. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and spacious. We are in our late twenties and found it perfect as you are a nice distance away from the night life of Khoasa Road but close enough to walk and enjoy the food, drinks and atmosphere it has... More

We spent our first night in Thailand in Bangkok and stayed at Korbua House. The taxi/tut tut drivers struggled to find it although it was only a few minutes walk from Koh San Road (main street), but as soon as we did the hotel was lovely and welcoming. We'd say definitely get it marked on a map to give the... More

Pros: Friendly staff (don´t forget to take the map of the hotel as they have instructions in Thai to help you with tuk-tuk drivers) Clean hotel, confortable rooms Close to Kao San Road and other main attractions Cons: Terrible smell from the river next to the building. I saw people throwing all kinds of garbage in the water. We couldn´t... More

The rooms are clean and neat! The hotel offers appetizing meals and beverages at affordable prices. Great location - situated within walking distance from Koa San Road, widely known for its lively night market... not to be missed! It was one of the highlights of our trip!

Love it! Great hotel, perfect location, friendly and attentive staff. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends. The room (we had a canal view) was perfect; large, bright, clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend it. I'm only giving the food 3 stars because i ordered the American breakfast. It was average at best and they forgot my toast :(

We stayed at the Korbua House for a couple of nights in March 2014. We had a top floor room over looking the canal. The room was on the small side, but nicely appointed and clean and comfortable. We had a balcony and the view was nice, but no one mentions the smell. It might be that it was towards... More

I started my Thailand trip in Korbua house and came back after 4 weeks of travelling: As you see, I like this hotel very much. The hotel is close to Khaosan Road (5 min walk) and located on a small river, i.e. away from all the noise at night, but still very close to touristic places. A small restaurant next... More

The place I usually stay was completely booked and recommended Korbua House as an alternative. I didn't expect much but really loved it. The staff are helpful and friendly and, when I arrived early from an overnight train, they hurried to get my room ready for me. The room was clean, spacious and quiet. I read that some people complain... More
