“Nice hotel in a hectic location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Stayed here two nights while on our Thailand holiday of two weeks. Arriving at Khaosan road around 5.30 AM after a bus journey from southern Thailand was not the best possible return to the "civilization" after 10 days at perfect beach locations, but the staff was very pleasant and spoke very good English. The room was clean, although it seemed that AC didn't work fully properly: when it was on, it was always giving very cold air, so we ended up sleeping without it (which worked just fine). The pool area was small but nice and after each long day walking around Bangkok we really appreciated that it was there. :-) A small café at the entrance corridor had some quite tasty breakfast, too.



The only real problem with Rikka Inn might be the location on the Khaosan Road - it seemed that the nightlife doesn't really end before 6 AM and the noise from the street was quite audible to our room at 5th floor. On the other hand, the Rattanakosin is just a short walk away, and in a city like Bangkok it really counts because getting around isn't too easy. If you don't mind the noises of the street life at night, Rikka Inn is a good value for your money (we paid 1800 Baht for two nights).

Good and clean hotel (a bit expensive) right in the middle of Khaosan Road. But even though, we managed to get some good nights sleep. You didnt actually here much noise which was good, since Khaosan is a pretty crazy street staying at. Pool area was small but clean and nice. The receptionists were not very friendly though which lowers the grade. But all and all, okey hotel!

Basic rooms which are tiny compared to everywhere else that i stayed. They are however clean and modern. Located in the centre of koh san road and surrounded by bars, shopping and dining. Surprisingly quiet for its location. Pool on the roof was amazingly clean and well maintained. Overall good value for money but i wouldnt stay there longer than a few nights before i started feeling cramped.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of the hotel. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the comforts.

I was sorry to hear the standard room categories were not up to another standards. At Rikkainn we appreciate our product needs to be continually refreshed, this is happening but as you can understand for a hotel of this size, this needs to be done in various phases, our guests in general still enjoy the comfort of our spacious Supirior , Deluxe and Deluxe double with balcony rooms in their current decor.

Onca again, thank you for your constructive feedback, we really do appreciate and I hope we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

Yours sincerely,

Management Team

I booked 2 nights at Rikka Inn through the internet as we were due to arrive late in Bangkok. I don't have much bad things to say about the hotel itself and staff - who were professional and helpful. The hotel was clean; the rooms were OK. But if you are planning to sleep, don't go there. I hadn't realised before that staying on Khaosan Road was a silly decision. With the party in the street going on until 6am, it was impossible to sleep and we had 2 terrible nights. If you are going to stay up all night partying and don't mind the noise, then yes Rikka Inn is a good option. Otherwise I suggest to go 1 or 2 streets away from Khaosan Road

We stayed at Rikka Inn on two separate occasions. It's one of the better options on Khao San road. It's at the end of the street, so it's easy to pick up a Tuk Tuk or taxi and not have to walk through the chaos. It's also quiet, the rooms are clean, and the staff is helpful (although sometimes it may be difficult to communicate). There's a great little breakfast place on the ground floor as well.

Khao San can be fun, but you are away from the major sites and other areas of the city. You need to take a taxi or walk to the river for a ferry. Not too bad. Worth staying for a night or two to party with the backpackers/"flashpackers" coming through Bangkok.

This place is right in the action, but despite that is surprisingly quiet. I think some of the front and lower floor rooms are probably noisy, but we had a back room on the 4th floor and was really quiet. Rooms are basic but comfortable and clean and great for the price. THe roof-top pool is cool too. WOuld recommend.
