Great location for tourist streets of Khaosan, and on the river with the huge fish and not overlooked. Close to the lomprayah bus stop. Rooms are good but the one I had was small for the money. Had a good American breakfast, staff are super friendly. If you get a good last minute price on agoda it's worth it.

This is a great little hotel for budget price in a great location. Yes canal smells a bit, it was 37-9 degrees most of time, but as it has more fish in it than Christ needed on the mount it must be reasonable clean. I got big room with balcony but given temp outside its only used to hang our your washing...or if you smoke. Unfortunately this place list points from me because of one particular member of staff. He was there every day, morning on desk but, from day one, he was rude, unsmiling as if you were an inconvenience. This worsened when the friend I was visiting in Thailand arrived to spend couple days with me. First breakfast she was there he was openly unhappy to serve her to the point she asked him in Thai if he had a problem. He just walked away and when she asked other staff they looked embarrassed. She explained this was probably because I was from West and she was Thai and some look down on this. Most of this happened in a language and culture unfamiliar to me but if this attitude happened at home in Scotland I suspect fights may ensue. I was pretty disgusted at this being accepted in hotel and can only assume the member of staff is family as he is in the wrong business.. I found all Thai people so helpful and friendly but this bloke was exception. Yes I'd recommend but beware morning male reception!!! B

Response from Tanyavimon S, Front Office Manager at Korbua House
Responded Apr 22, 2019
Dear BJMcI, Thank you for your comment. First of all I would like to deeply apologize to you and you friend. I would like to have a chance to explain. I already ask all staff on that day and talk to him directly about your case. He explain that because of pancake and toast that we cannot serve you. But I do not accept it to be excuse to make you and your friend uncomfortable. I already give him a warning and he really sorry about your situation. If possible he would like to say sorry to your friend by himself. I can guarantee that not about you are West and she was Thai because we have a lot of guest like this visit our hotel every month. She was your guest, we consider she was our guest too and we were happy to have Thai be our guest that easier to communicate and more understand. However I deeply apologize to you and you friend again. Sincerely yours, Tanyavimon S.

It is not the first time I stayed in the Korbua House and probably I will come back again. The rooms could definitely do with some renovation and I really hope the management will do something this year. Rooms are clean. The view on the river is great and I love the breakfast terrace. To see the market people cutting the fish every morning on the other side of the river, to see the big fishes in the water and the komodo climbing the wall. Breakfast is good and the guy who serves it (unfortunately I forgot his name) is super friendly. Very close to the pier which is great as well. Away from the noise. I gave this hotel 4 dots but more for the whole experience. The rooms should be rated between a 2 and 3.

This hotel’s restaurant is horrible and such a blatant rip off I had to leave a review. I was fooled by the riverside location but it smelt like a sewer. Not their fault admittedly but it added to the experience. I ordered a mango smoothie. When I asked what was in it I was told just mango. All mango. No sugar. When it arrived it was literally an artificial mango juice slushie. When I said something to the waiter he said something like “I can’t squeeze the mangoes myself ... oh but don’t worry it has no sugar. All healthy... For a country where it practically rains mangoes I cannot understand this. The rest of the meal was terrible too. Tom yum with prawns, which was actually ok but was about three spoonfuls. And a cheese and tomato sandwich which tasted like stale bread and which they put onion on without asking (Im allergic to onion). I was then charged 350 baht for the experience, the smoothie being a whopping 100bt, more than I’d pay at home. I mentioned the fact I was lied to about the smoothie and the guy just shrugged and walked off. I left hungry and annoyed. Avoid this place. Poor food and dishonest.
