You want a big room? Flat screen? Brand new hotel? Large bathroom with a sunken jacuzzi? Fancy pants? Room service? Or do you want somewhere cheap to stay that's steps from Ko Sarn Road traveller hub 20 bucks a night with a clean bed, air con, tv, mini fridge, and bathroom? If it's the latter then this is the place... More

I wouldn't call this a hotel. It is a hostel. You can book the breakfast there but it isn't tasty and not cooled. So when you eat a bit later you better have a strong stomach. The location is great. Close to khao san road. The room was smelly. Really disgusting. Everything was old. I can't recommend it at all!!

Very basic room, no towel, just a bed and a bathroom. Lock on door was ok, not super secure. I had an internal window, I checked it, it pulled open from the outside, right near the stairwell...had a struggle but managed to lock it shut...just take care with this, otherwise your stuff will be out the window when you're not...

The room was in a great location however our double room was very stuffy, small and had no natural light. overall not bad for the price and it had air conditioning. Would recommend this for a shorter stay.

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.

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
