First night room was very small and I do mean small, next day asked for a larger room and that one was much better. Staff was just okay they didn't seem to go out of there way to help. You had to carry your Owen luggage to the room. The first night I work up at 5 went down stairs...

Stayed here two nights.. clean room with own bathroom. Got 2 bottles of free water a day. Staff were ok but not really interested in helping and gave very brief answers. I would stay here again if needed but it is quite far from the centre of Bangkok. There is a night market just up the road and a tesco,...

The hotel's location is very far from the Bangkok centre and the sites such as The Grand Palace which is a real downfall. The room we had was quite dated and smaller than expected. The food in the hotel was a good price and the staff were also good. The best part was the roof top garden and swimming pool...

The beds and the floor are clean. The shower and toilet seem a bit stained, but it's fine. The shower in the two single bed rooms is very low. A person taller than 1.60m can't take a shower standing up. It's also a bath, though, so you can take a bath or shower while sitting. The shower in the queen...

I had one amazing week in bansabai. Amazing environment, and real thai people around. Only couple tourists, but super kind staff and thai people. Definately one of the best places to find delicious local food also. The roof pool gives you the chance to fully relax and watch the busy bangkok.

Location isn't great. But we used buses (they are very cheap 40cent for ride) and their tuk-tuk for their citizen -or something like that (just wait on bus station, and when you see one with people inside, just wave with your hand - they have route and when you want to go out just ring a bell and pay- it's...

I've been to this charming Hotel a few times over the last couple of years and it felt like home from the very beginning. It might seem at first as it's located too far from the city centre but it won't take more than a short train ride to be in the heart of Bangkok. I usually stay there a...

Nice hostel but the location is not that great depending on your purpose of stay. Especially for travelling tourist areas of Bangkok. You always hit a lot of trafic to Shops Markets and other tourist attractions
