But it's a good location, lots of shops around, khao san road pretty... More

If stayed in places that are much cheaper, bigger and newer. I left after 2 night although I had payed for 4. The rude staff was terrible and I just took my loses!... More

Never, ever again. We booked this hotel for our last night in Bangkok. We were planning to take as much as we can from this night so room conditions were not that important for us. But what we saw in this hotel exceeded worst scenarios. The room was dirty, the bathroom full of fungi, leaking pipes, no hot water although... More

Bathroom light didnt work and shower and toilet leaked. The one socket in the room was at the far top corner of the wall at the ceiling... More

For the money you pay, the place is absolutely okay! The most reviews here must come from 1st time bangkok visitors, don't book this place if u expect 3 to 5 stars, this is a classical bangkok guesthouse with all his positive and negative sides. Nostalgic feelings, like bangkok 15 years ago. I like it!

Horrible place to stay, rooms are small and dirty and smelling like sewer. Our room had a giant hole in the wall covered by a map and bathroom so moldy that it almost looked like art project. Avoid this place by miles and you will not need to bother to speak with the rudest staff in Bangkok
