Stayed here as part of a tour, but was very surprised at just how nice this hotel ended up being. After weeks of hostels and budget rooms, this was a breath of fresh air. Room was a great size, and the bathroom was clean and spacious. Staff's English wasn't fantastic but could more or less understand me, and helped me... More

After the night train from Bangkok, the Mandala House was a nice respite. They have a lovely breakfast. It was a convenient walk to the Night Market and the main street area. We definitely felt like we were in Thailand. The decor is rustic southeast Asian and there were some beautiful pottery pieces around. You could get wifi in the... More

We booked this place without researching (which we never do) and out of desperation at a travel agent in the Bangkok train station! First mistake. We ended up paying 2 times the rack rate and we had to move rooms twice due to leaking air conditioners (floods)! Management seemed indifferent about our concerns! On the plus side we did have...

It's a little difficult to find off the main road, but that makes it quiet in the evenings. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff is very helpful and friendly (although their English is not the best so it can take some time to explain what you want. Breakfast is basic, but good. The location is convenient and... More

I've stayed here a few times now & it was my first time since they completed their renovations. There is a big difference between the old & new rooms, the new rooms being much larger. Overall i had a comfortable stay here, even though the bathroom had a smelly drain. But it's the location & the price that make this... More
