Our first stop in SE Asia and felt a bit like home after four nights. Despite our room being extremely cramped (3 people in a two person room, so that's not surprising) the pool was our saviour. Clean and refreshing and always chairs available. The women at the front desk were always helpful and the room was promptly cleaned as soon as we left in the morning. If you're looking to stay on Khao San, you cannot beat the location. Right in the heart of it all yet the rooms were quiet and the rooftop pool felt like an oasis to escape the hustle and bustle (if you need another escape, go to Siam Paragon mall! Feels like a different world).

Good basic hotel on the Khaosan Road. Rooms are basic but clean.we stayed in room 603 and could not hear any noise from the bustling front. Nice rooftop pool. Reception staff helpful. Good coffee/ breakfast cafe next door.

This place is placed between two of the loudest streets in the area, there is absolutely no escaping the maddening noise until well after 2am, no matter which room you choose. I tried on both sides, at multiple floors, same noise levels.

The most infuriating was that I was nonchalantly lied to by the reception staff: I came in asking if they have any quiet rooms, maybe in the back, and said "yes, quite room available, but more expensive..." apparently I am staying in a deluxe room, though having just seen also a superior ( the lower end) in the attempt to find a quieter place, I could absolutely not tell the difference.

Rooms are ok, spartan, but good quality bed. Pretty much the only upside. Stay here only if you are convinced you'll be the last person standing at the surrounding parties.

We stayed here 3 nights and it was 3 long nights indeed. The room is very small and does not look like the picture on the promotion sheet at all, even though we booked a superior room. The bathroom is so small that the towels are hung in the bedroom. Our air conditioner did not work properly - it did not control the temperature - it just kept on cooling to the effect that the room became a fridge. So, when you finished showering, you step out into a freezing room to get to your towels. When we complained, we got issued blankets. You can't open a window because the noise from the street is unbearable. In the end I developed a sore throat because of this extreme temperature exposures.
The swimming pool area is not fitted with umbrellas, so you are exposed to the sun all the time. I can only say I was happy to leave.

Stayed here for a few days before travelling south. Clean room,, great rooftop pool and friendly staff. Only drawback was the hustlers outside the main entrance trying to get you in their taxi or tell you about their latest deal. By the 5th day I nearly came to blows with mr wheeler dealer. Admittedly, this is not the hotel's fault and you get this up and down khao san road.

We stayed here for 5 nights.
When we check-in we were allowed to der The room. We had The standard room (1150 baht), twinbed, desk, mirror, window (with a view to The ac machines), minibar, tv, ac, bathroom- hot and cold shower, sink, Western toilet. The room smelled of smoke, because you're allowed to smoke inside. But when you turn om The ac The smell clears.

You have to pay when check in, and a deposit for The key (1000 Baht).

Everyday you get two small bottles of water for free! And they clean your room.
You can use The swimmingpool from 9 till 9.

The Staff behind The desk is unorganized. We stayed 1 more night and had already paid for it, when we checked put they wanted to charge is for The room. After long Talking and showing The receipt they finally believed us. But we stayed in The lobby and saw more mistakes, people how were lieving their backs how had to pay double. Or people checking out how had to pay more.

Then to top it off, The youngest staffmamber how does everything trew away my half full bottle of water without asking! She was wearing earplugs so she didnt hear me...

We didnt had sleeping problems, but om weekends The music is louder then weekdays.

They have 'left luggage' for 20 Baht à bag.

If you ever find yourself in the Khaosan Road area of Bangkok and want to spend some time in that area, then why not stay at the Rikka Inn which is actually located on Khaosan Road and all you have to do is step outside your hotel door and you are right amongst the action and nightlife in this part of this huge city.

I stayed here in early March 2013 just for one night. The room I stayed in was spotless, modern, basic and very small but ok for my needs for a short stay and the AC in the room was really powerful.

There is a really nice little pool located on the roof where you can cool down and relax. I paid around 1,100 baht for the room (no breakfast). You could hear the loud music from the street below, it went off at 2am but if you stay on Khaosan Road then you expect this and are probaly still out at that time anyway.
