I spent over a week at Korbua House and was overall very satisfied with my stay. The canal side rooms are a good size and have all the facilities you could hope for. I was also very happy with the location, it is a quiet area but not too far at all from Grand Palace, Khao San/Rambuttri and also the... More

We stayed here for just one night, the Room was big and clean, with good wifi and TV.. The Room had a little Terrace but it smells really bad if you open the windows because of the canal! Its a 10min walk to khao san, so its a bit quiter.. Supermarkets are around the corner and Taxis are also everywhere..... More

We arrived at late time and they still provide us with care and friendly service. The hotel is located near the Kao San road and there are several restaurants nearby. The room is standard and a bit old styled. Its located beside the river and sometimes we can watch fishers and birds from the room. In the morning there are... More

I've stayed in this part of Bangkok many times over 30 years, usually in simpler guesthouses, but I appreciated the higher comfort of Korbua House at an albeit much higher price than what I was used to pay. We arrived late after a long day's bus journey and were welcomed with a cold herbal tea and a refreshing towel. The... More

I stayed there with my husband 2 days during March 2016. I know we payed a relatively low price but having heard about the cheap prices for good hotels and the amount of options available, I was very disappointed. I dindn´t expect luxury but at least a clean room. And having read the reviews here I never expected such a... More

The hotel in general was fine, rooms were clean and comfortable enough. However the stench in the lobby and corridors was awful, we ended up holding our breathe while running to and from the lift to avoid it. Luckily the smell didn't get into the room on the 3rd floor so it didn't ruin our visit, if we opened the... More

Good hotel with good prices. Excellent location- 5 minute walk to Khao San rd, but far enough away from the road to have a quiet night sleep. Had a room overlooking a small river and local market which was lovely. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is down a small road so look it up on a map... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights late Jan/early Feb. The hotel is an extremely short walk from Khaosan/Rambutri (5 mins) but it's far enough away that you don't hear the noise from the pubs. We stayed in the executive canal room and it was huge! The room was clean and towels were changed daily. My only complaints... More

Absolutely great place and very decent prices. Staff at this place are extremely friendly and very welcoming. Upon check in we were greeted with fresh cold water and wet towels to freshen up. Complimentary biscuits too. Rooms are very tidy and smell lovely. Only thing we found a bit strange was the notice in the toilet mentioning do not flush... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
