It could have been a lot worse. There was poor quality wifi, a view-less balcony, and a fairly acceptable en-suite. The roof top pool and bar we only went to for about ten seconds. It was horribly over priced, but you HAVE to stay on Koa San Road, and granted that it wasn't so bad. It also had a handy... More

If you are not afraid by the lively khaosan road, this is the perfect place to be in Bangkok. The rooms are beautifully furnished, the beds are very comfortable and there is an appreciated mini-bar. The swimming pool on the rooftop is really warm, and we feel at ease on the lying chairs where you can appreciate a coconut milk... More

We stayed for two nights at the start of our Thai holiday. Room 310 was quiet and comfortable. The AC was great, bed comfy and shower powerful. Right in the middle of all the fun!! Staff were helpful and friendly! Would recommend it to people who don't mind paying a bit more for comfort.

We arrived one day earlier and it was no problem to check in one night in advance. We got even the promo discount dor the additional night as we got for the others booked online on their page. The pool on the roof is nice after a busy day on the streets of Bangkok.

Have stayed here many times. Really good hotel. Ideally situated in the heart of the city and easy to have as a base for exploring the city. Really nice rooms and roof top pool. Try lucky beer if you are in this area as they do a cracking green curry.

This hotel was in a prime location on Khao San Rode. It took a while to get to from the airport by Tuk-tuk and took a while for us to explain to the driver where we were staying. It helped when we said "Khao San Road," however we pronounced it incorrectly and he was confused until we showed him it... More

This lovely hotel is situated right on koh San road, which, if you are the type to be a light sleeper may give you a bit of bother. It really is a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle below though just put some ear plugs in although it really isn't bad! Nice rooftop pool which was slightly cold but... More
