“Smaller than expected but great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Rikka Inn was our 1st stop on pur holiday, right at the top end of Khao San Rd your in the hub of it all. Staff were friendly, room was clean although not as large or contemporary as the pictures made me think.

That being said it was big enough and it's all about exploring anyway so you don't need to spending time inside.

Great breakfast cafe downstairs, yummy pancakes. But the really treat of the Rikka Inn is the roof top pool. Such a bonus on a hot, sticky Bangkok day.

Recommended!

Ps. They store your bags for 20bht if you are getting the over night bus or train to Chumpon or Chiang Mai so you don't have to worry about carrying them with you :-)

Nice, clean cheap hotel in the middle of Khao San Rd. Small but nice rooms, with simple but pretty decor. Perfect for the lone flashpacker or for couples. The rooftop pool is great. I didn't find that it was loud at night, but I did find the staff very rude and not helpful whatsoever.

Room Tip: Great little cafe next to reception!

The good thing is the wifi in the rooms, the cleaningness and the cheap price then it is in a terrible district and pretty far from the main sightseeing. I would recommand this hotel for backpackers on a little budget looking for partying in bangkok

small rooms but they're clean and have everything you need. there is plenty of hot water and good water pressure, a mini fridge, good A/C units, and the bed is comfortable. the rooftop pool is nice and the location is smack in the middle of everything on khao san. it's definitely loud at night but don't stay on khao san road if you want it to be silent at night. the 1000 baht deposit is kind of crazy but it's returned just fine. front desk wasn't over-the-top friendly or useful but perfectly adequate. i'd stay here again.

I stayed her for 4 nights in October. A bit of a disappointment I should have stayed at Kosan park resort (almost opposite)where I had stayed before. Rikka Inn very small rooms, and small TV too, strange they advertise cable TV, but only 1 English channel, (news) and one French, any amount of Thai channels. I ask why how many Thai's actually sty there? Very few. Be careful in the small toilet/shower room, they do not have non-slip tiles, I fell and, lucky no major injury,
Book on line it is cheaper

Room Tip: Pick a room that is not noisy, a bit difficult but it is possible.

This is by far the best place we have stayed on Kho San Road. The rooms are clean, modern and decorated really well. Considering your on Kho San Road you cannot hear the noise from the street. The pool is small but considering it is a roof top pool it is perfect, great place to cool down in hot, humid Bangkok. A lot more expensive than other hotels in the area but you pay for what you get.

We stayed at Rikka Inn 3 nights and were completely satisfied. The room was quite small (we took the cheapest) but very clean. Very good location but still relatively quite. Free Wi-Fi and of course drinking water. Swimming pool is located on the rooftop and is lovely. The only thing is the weird opening hours: it was closed after 6 pm, which was exactly the time suitable for a swim (in our opinion). If you're looking to stay at Kao San but with more style, book it.
