Such a nice location in a very center of major tourist attractions in Bangkok. The hotel was fine, but just fine. And there was a bit lack of service. Did not have aircon for a while before changing the room. Some hotel staff couldn't communicate in English. Food not very exciting and hotel seems to target mainly on backpackers. True... More

I stayed at this hotel more than 4 times already mainly because it's really close to Khaosan Road. I don't like how small the room and the bathroom are. It doesn't have much thing in the room. The tv looks old and doesn't have anything entertaining except soccer and news and at night it gets noisy. It's enough for stay... More

The room is not too nice. Old furniture , smell a little. But quite clean but very very small toilet. I like the free wifi in the room. Best thing about the hotel is the location. This hotel at Khaosan road. There are many Sawasdee hotels here so be careful to get the right place. The room is clean but... More

We choose this place as it was close to KhaoSan Road and close to airport routes. We were struggling to find it at first, but young Thai gentleman took us all the way. Rooms are reasonably clean, fairly noisy, we had our own mosquito and bug repellents, and we burned citronella before bed, so we had a good sleep and... More

The people who own Sawasdee also have a share in the airport bus, which coincidentally drops you off immediately outside this hotel. This was why I first ended up staying here. Admittedly, my first stay was fine but it was also my first stay in Thailand. However, I stayed again last year and I had already been back to Thailand... More

I have stayed here twice, 3 years apart. It hadn't changed much in that tie, which was what I liked. It is basic, but very clean and in a fantastic location. Close enough to stumble home, but far enough away from the noise of Khaosan Road.

We'll first off let me say this hotel was chosen for me via a "travel agent" once I arrived in Bangkok. In saying that my wife and I were charged a lot more to stay here then what other travellers are saying. However that was probably the travel agency raking in there precious comission. When we got there we had... More

The hotel is definitely budget but it's clean and amazingly located. The standard rooms were relatively clean and well serviced. Problems occurred but they were all sorted with relatively good grace. Everything is appropriate for a budget hotel. Khaosan Rd is just minutes away, Soi Rambutri is great for eating and amenities are all on your doorstep. Transport links are... More

I rated this hotel 4 star because It was really cheap. It costs only 800 baht for 2 person room with A/C, hot water and breakfast. Rooms are very small in size but clean. Breakfast is buffet and pretty good! If you are a traveler who travels whole day and only stay at the hotel at night than I think... More
