Located in the midle of the famous Khao San Road in Bangkok. No noise from the streets. Nice pool and bar on the roof. The room was like a beach house. Perfect for people who like to stay in the midle of everything and stil have a quiet hotel.

The hotel was in a great location - on the Khao San road but tucked closer to the end and nestled away in a building that was also home to other amenities like a McDonald's, travel agency (which belonged to the hotel), and a nightclub (this also belongs to the hotel and is not advertised on the outside but attracts...

My third time staying at this bohemian inspired hotel in two different settings. The location is not family friendly when Khao San Road comes alive at night, but it's definitely worth the stay if you want to stay in the heart of Bangkok. The staff is extremely helpful and kind, the rooms are clean and comfy, and the roof top... More

You can't go wrong at this place, rooms are brilliant as they're big and spacey, bed is unbelievably comfortable, bathroom is a good size. Had a slight issue at 3am in the morning with the air con leaking but they got this sorted within 20 minutes of me going down to reception. The hotel staff can't do more for you,... More
