I just came back yesterday from Bangkok and the first thing I wanted to do was to review this hotel. We've been tipped by friends to stay on that street while in Bangkok because it's 5 minutes from Khao San Road without the hustle and bustle. Well that part is true. If you like to sleep at night this is the place to be, no night clubs around and way less people walking down that street. We visited 5 different guest houses (including the well rated Erawan) and choosed this one because it was the cheapest.
The rooms were a little small, but we didn't care because we usually don't spend that much time there. Walls are probably painted white but are now almost black with all the dirt on it. The shower point directly at the toilet which is unpleasant when you want to use it after. But, if you visit places like that you pretty much kinda expect those things. Especially when you visit the rooms first (which you must absolutely do!)
The worst part was the service. When we booked the rooms, staff was very nice. As soon as we finished that part, the 3 persons at the lobby probably changed their shifts and were replaced by the 3 most rude persons I've ever seen in any hotel, hostel, guesthouse in the world!!
Everytime we entered the place they were constantly checking our account to see if we had paid (you must pay in advance...which we did!) very unpolite behavior, laughing at people. We've witness them 2 times arguing with customers who were checking out that the TV remote control wasn't in the room and that they had to pay 200 baht!! SCAM!
Hey I even took a picture of the AC and TV remote in my room in case they do me the same thing!
And the worst part, the checkout! Of course we had to deal with the terrible lady at the desk. I was getting down the luggage in the lobby when she litteraly screamed at me : THE KEY!! GIVE ME THE KEY!!
I politely said calm down, I'm not finished with the room but she screamed at me again GIVE ME THE DAMN KEY!
She really seemed to have a problem, she was even arguing with the 2 other person at the lobby. OK, maybe I had a bad experience there that will never happen again but...there really seem to have 3-4 other guesthouses on that street...my advice? Try anyone of them but stay away from the Four Sons.
The funny part is that under their sign it's written : Comfortable and friendly. The 2 only things they were not.
