To call this place The Sawsdee Smile Inn, is a joke in itself! There is nothing smiley or welcoming about this place! On arriving by tuk tuk the driver had no small change. So I left my girlfriend with him while I went to try and sort some out from the hotel. I went to the front desk where there... More

I don't like seeing bad reviews on this hotel. it may not be a 5-star resort but if you're a traveller and not wanting to stay another night in a shared dorm then definitely come here. it may not be the clean place in the world but it's very cheap and I can't complain about my times here. the staff...

For a hotel with the word "smile" in it's name - there were no smiles whatsoever! The staff were incredibly rude. We are used to staying in budget accomodation in south east Asia and certainly don't expect any form of luxury but there is no excuse for the poor service and filthy rooms and corridors. Upon check in to our... More

Since the price was low, I wasn't expecting much and I didn't run into any surprises. It's quite basic but my room and the sheets were clean. The receptionist was helpful. Be sure to walk all the way down the alley it's in since its towards the end of it. But you can't really miss it cause it's bright purple.

This booked this hotel because I'm on a budget and am not fussed about luxury rooms. Sawasdee smile is not as bad as people are making out, the staff are not as smiley as some however they are helpful if you ask politely (as you should). The rooms are very basic but with excellent air con which was a blessing... More

Dont come to this hotel never in your life. Poor facilities, dirty beds and towels, unfriendly staff. Otherwise they have a functional air con and a average breakfast . The location is pretty good, near koh san road

I wish I didn't have to give this place even 1/5. The rooms are not big enough to swing a cat in. They look like they haven't been cleaned in a decade, especially the walls and the shower. The rag they call a blanket is scruffy and itchy, looks like it hasn't been washed in at least half a year.... More

Well well well...they literally had our pants down. They must be howling all the way to the bank- especially the hideous Indian restaurant attached!!! Ate there out of pity for the waitress who had a busted black eye..walked out of there feeling like giving her one myself after serving that food. Welcomed to the hostel by the taste of bum... More

When travelling we went to the Tourist Information Centre when we first arrived and were recommended to stay in this horrible place. If this happens to you- say NO! The room was tiny. We had a slightly larger then single bed for the two of us, and the bathroom is not a bathroom really- More like a sink, toilet and... More
