“Good value and location”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stated for 3 nights when we arrived in Bangkok to acclimatise. Got upgraded to a bigger room for no extra charge as the standard rooms were all taken. Clean rooms and strong air con, safe box in room was useful. Roof top pool was nice after a hot day. Can be very noisey at night with it being on khao San road but If you chose to stay in that area then noise shouldn't be an issue. Ask for a room nearer the back and he noise isn't a problem. Free bottled water every day was a gift. Only negative is staff were a bit rude especially at the front desk. Not very welcoming. All in all good stay and we'd stay again.

We stayed here two nights when we first arrived in thailand. It was our first stop so we wanted to stay somewhere easy to find and close to other travellers. This location was definitely that. It was right on Kho San road which is a great spot for travellers to start. Lots of other travellers around, easy to find for cab drivers, etc.

The problem with this hotel was that it is right on the main street and hence extremely loud. Like all night parties essentially. I would recommend staying somewhere near by and coming to Kho San to enjoy the nightlife. Otherwise you'll never sleep! This was fine for us for one of the nights as we stayed out quite late. But the first night we arrived we were so jetlagged and wanted to sleep, and that was out of the question here.

Great pool also, which was nice. Roof top location and was kept at a decent temperature.

Given this places' proximity to Khao San Road and all that goes with this infamous place it was strangely quiet. Literally on the doorstep of this infamous road it provides safe, secure, good value accommodation with a lovely pool on the roof. I even managed a tan whilst i was there for 3 days...! No food on offer inside hotel, but with countless food vendors on the strip who needs it.

Me and a friend stayed at the Rikka Inn for four nights in June 2013. The accomodation reminded me of University Accomodation. The rooms are very small and are all along long corridors. The room size we had was very basic and small (hardly much room to walk around). At approx £9 pppn you can't really complain. I think if I was to go back here again I would recommend going for the best room in the hotel, as it's still fairly cheap. The room was cleaned everyday and fresh towels provided. We did not find the rooms noisy at all even with all the choas that comes with the Koh San Road.

The location is fab and you can walk home after a night out on the Koh San Road. It is also approx 20-30minutes by Taxi to most tourist attractions and sights. We didn't get round to using the pool but went and had a look and it looked nice.

The hotel do ask for a deposit of 1000 bhat or your credit card in case you lose the key, so I would suggest leaving it with reception - just in case. Also non hotel guests are not allowed back to the hotel and are chargere at 400bhat pp.

Overall I would recommend staying here if you are after a cheap stay at a clean hotel with a good location!

Room Tip: We went for a double room which was fairly small. Go for a bigger room as these are fairly cheap. Ba...

Its typically a backpackers hotel....but a much higher standard than the others on koh san rd.
Lovely roof top pool, rooms are cool with awesome murals on the wall.
Bathroom is asian style with no base for the shower. but it was clean and for the price you are paying it really is an amazing place!!
Free wifi, computers to use for free by reception and bottled water every day.
I would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: Can get a bit noisy so maybe away from the street. However If noise will bother you do not book a ho...

The Khao San action is literally at your doorstep. For what it costs, this place is great. Clean, good service and double glazed windows keep the noise out. Rooms are basic but you're not there to stay in a room. Definitely recommend if you want to be amongst the action for a reasonable price.

If you are looking for a nice relaxing hotel in the middle of culture surroundings woken by the sounds of tigers doing yoga, you will be dissapointed by this place. However for a few days in Bangkok looking to enjoy yourself and you dont mind people around you doing the same 24 hours a day then this is a good place. The rooms are clean and tidy with maid service everyday and the fridge is stocked with lots of beer and even some free water. The wi-fi is so so but there are 2 computers in reception you can use for free and the staff are all helpful. Just be aware of 2 things both really out of the Rikkas control, this is in the centre of Khoa san road so its pretty noisy however it is at the slightly quiter end at night as Lucky Bar/Central Khoa san are the other way., Secondly there are a lot of people hanging around out side trying to get you a tutt tutt, measure you for a suit or take you to ping-pong show, this is pretty much the same all up and down the road.

Its not a bad place to start or end a trip with a bang and everything else Bangkok is only a walk or 200 baht (£4) tut-tut away

oh and that pool pic has been "hollywooded" a bit, its okay but not that nice
