“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

So if you're going to Khoasan and you still want to have the luxury of a clean bed and western amenities then this is a great place to drop your head.

During the day the pool provides a great place to get away from the hassle of the street, and meet others who want to pay a bit more during their stay.

It's obviously more expensive, but for good reason.

Only a few negatives, the Internet can be a bit on and off, and the noise goes all night (which you're told during check in).

Great place to drop your head and be within a stones throw of the fun!

The room we had was tiny and it was at the front, so it was noisy (but before we took the room reception did give us fair warning). Clean room with cable tv but no space for 2 people to move around, so it was a little over priced for what we got.

Stayed here when we first arrived to Thailand. As it was my first time visiting I wanted to stay central and have accommodation booked for when we got off the plane. My boyfriend had been to Thailand before so he knew some good places. Stumbled across this on the internet.

This place was good for the money paid. Bed, hot shower, air con - what more do u really need if your hardly in ur room.

The staff were extremely friendly. It was a little noisy but that's to be expected staying directly on khaosan road but it was tolerable.

Would recommend this to anyone.

This hotel is very good value for money, it is in the heart of Khao san Road where all the night life is. They have a pool on the roof which is great for cooling down in the mid day sun. For the money i dont think you can do better.

Room Tip: all the rooms seem to be far from the noise so you should get a good sleep in any.

We stayed 2 nights here and found our stay to be just ok. The location on Khao san Rd was awesome and the staff were friendly.

We had a premier room which featured Satelite TV, Aircon, drinking water and an in room safe. However the main issue with the room was the fact that the standard of cleanliness was very poor. The room and bathroom were both very filthy. The noise levels from Khao San Rd was not as bad I expected.

This hotel was ok but we wouldn't stay again.

stayed here for three days, i thought my stay was cheap for 6oo baht as I was bragging about it. but i was wrong, it was a bit pricy knowing that you could get a dormitory type or a solo room for half the price around the area. but anyway, the amount was pretty cheap as compared to other hotels in bangkok. you'll get a five-star hotel service in this place - wifi, swimming pool and other standard amenities. the downside is that it is very noisy. if you are the type who is not into partying all night, avoid this place because it is very noisy with all the bars surrounding it (back and front). But still, this place is good. Staffs were nice, except for the night guys on-duty. Im asking which mode of transportation is the cheapest to go somewhere,instead of stretching his brain to think a little bit he'll say take the taxi. that is the only way...wtf!!!

but the room girls were nice. i gave her some of my clothes for her son/husband.

Room Tip: choose the back room as it is a little quieter than the front rooms.
