We stayed in a dorm room, the room was clean and comfortable. The shower is good, and the room has lockers and fans. The staff is friendly and helpful, but the hotel doesn't have tours or activities so you have to plan everything by yourself. The location is bad, most taxi drivers don't know it. It is very quite and... More

If you pay a little more and not go for the cheapest room options you really do get a lot more. We have air con, private bathroom, TV, fridge, fan, dressing table, wardrobe, very comfortable beds, reading lamps, fly nets on windows, phone etc etc!!! It might be a good idea to print out the directions in Thai from the... More

Getting up with the elevator to the terrace, found ourselves a nice and sunny table, and we had te best view so far on Bangkok!... More

I wasn't really sure what to expect because I didn't see any pictures before hand, my friend had recommended it and my other friend booked it for me. The rooftop restaurant/lounge area is incredible! So gorgeous, spent much time up there during the evening and some afternoons. Tiew, the woman at the front desk, was very VERY helpful. As a... More

A bit difficult to find but it was absolutely worth it. The view is fantastic and the food was great. Sitting at the rooftop overlooking the city and the river with calm music in the background in a hectic city was nice after a busy day looking at all the sites and markets.

Good price, friendly, helpful staff. Nice and big rooms with great view of the river., clean but old. Stayed there with our 1,5 year old. Good rooftop restaurant. Love the area, very authentic and away from the crowds of khao san. Close to river boat transport.
