I loved this hotel- The staff let me feel that every detail counts. I enjoyed my stay and definitely come again. The pool is great, the view is spectacular (just on the river!!), quiet, very clean and neat, the staff is amazing. I recommend taking the room with the balcony.

Room is elegant and large, soft muted colours, Thai style touches like carved woodwork. Wonderful bathroom, great shower pressure, Comfortable king bed, choice of pillows. The riverside pool and lounging area is special, watching the cargo, party boats, cruises, express boats. Next door rooftop bar is great and both pool and rooftop bar have happy hours. We love the Soi Rambuttri area which is a 5 minute walk away. Staff are so charming, polite, friendly. We were able to check in at 8am which was very much appreciated after travelling for 15 hours. Great value as I bought a Staycation deal

The hotel is in an excellent location, and the room was a good size with a lovely balcony view across the river. We only ate in the restaurant once for breakfast as it was a little pricey and the pastries weren’t fresh, the milk looked suspicious, and the fruit area was swarming with mini flies. It was off putting. Lots of excellent, cheap restaurants in the local area. Major complaint: the carpet around the bed was stained and pretty disgusting. Given it is by the bed the nature of the stains doesn’t need much guess work. It seriously was really horrible. We were so tired from other travel we didn’t request a room change, but we kept our shoes handy. Please remove the rug! Also, rooms weren’t cleaned till sometimes around 4 pm. That’s a little frustrating when you return from a days wandering to find you will be interrupted by cleaning. We just put a do not disturb sign up and didn’t bother.

What a beautiful hotel. Small enough to be personal yet large enough to have great facilities. The staff really make it with their friendly welcoming genuine attitude. Lunches were delicious. Breakfast plentiful and huge choice. Swimming pool very lush. The location is awesome - great fun being on the river and so easy to catch a boat or walk to temples or koh San road area. Many many many good value restaurants locally. Loved it!

We stayed for 5 nights and loved everything about the hotel, our room had an amazing balcony which overlooked the river, the hotel is 5 minutes walk from Khao San Road but it's very quiet, all of the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us, breakfast is good and the pool area was lovely to sit around in the evening. It is also right next to a ferry station, we are already looking to book to go back!!

Spacious and comfortable room with great view of the river. Pool area is great for lounging, swimming and watching the world go by on the river. Tasty breakfast with lots of options. Very friendly service. But most perfect of all is the hotel's location - plenty of things to do and eat for all budgets and whatever your wishes all within easy reach by water or road.
