Stayed here two nights while on our Thailand holiday of two weeks. Arriving at Khaosan road around 5.30 AM after a bus journey from southern Thailand was not the best possible return to the "civilization" after 10 days at perfect beach locations, but the staff was very pleasant and spoke very good English. The room was clean, although it seemed that AC didn't work fully properly: when it was on, it was always giving very cold air, so we ended up sleeping without it (which worked just fine). The pool area was small but nice and after each long day walking around Bangkok we really appreciated that it was there. :-) A small café at the entrance corridor had some quite tasty breakfast, too.
The only real problem with Rikka Inn might be the location on the Khaosan Road - it seemed that the nightlife doesn't really end before 6 AM and the noise from the street was quite audible to our room at 5th floor. On the other hand, the Rattanakosin is just a short walk away, and in a city like Bangkok it really counts because getting around isn't too easy. If you don't mind the noises of the street life at night, Rikka Inn is a good value for your money (we paid 1800 Baht for two nights).
