Great place to stay right on Khaosan rd. Staff at the front desk are very helpful especially the british man (sorry i didn't get your name) who showed us some good ideas for what to do around the area.

Probably the best place to start a trip to Thailand if you are staying a couple of days in Bangkok. Very functional hotel with gym and rooftop poolarea, close to everything you need and great service for khao san road. The Buddy group can help you with everything from tailored suits to taxi, pointers and things to do. Rooms may... More

This was perfect, had a great night of sleep without noise. The room was very clean, a lot of towels, soap, toothbrush etc, very... More

The rooms were clean a good bed and nice shower. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. I was traveling on my own for two... More

Location perfect for what we wanted for the first night. Hotel itself not amazing in terms of cleanliness but comfortable enough. Manager went out of his way in the morning to walk us to a taxi rank to get a fair meter taxi.
