Reviewed August 20, 2013

Modern hotel with very small clean well equipped rooms, not noisy although located in lively Khao San and with a good small sunny pool on the top. They have a new room on the ground floor just in front the reception that is smelly and dark as its window overlook on the reception: as we booked and pay in advance they try to give as that room but we refuse and after a bit they give us a standard room on the fifth floor that was good; as this hotel is often fully booked be sure they don't reserve for you the ground floor room!

Rooms and service are decent for the price, although not extraordinary. They boast a rooftop pool but it was under maintenance when we stayed here. We also stayed at Khaosan Park Resort across the street and found it to be a bit better for roughly the same price. Try to book ahead as they fill up quick.

The hotel is located right on the main Khaosan Road, which is super busy 24/7. This meant the rooms were quite noisy till all hours so ear plugs could be handy - we turned up the air con to drown out the noise!! Rooms are quite small but clean, shower room was small too but clean. Roof top pool looked lovely, although we didn't get to use it. I would recommend it :)
Ps would also recommend those boys who want suits to get taxi to shop called Siam Thai, about 10 mins in tuck tuck from Khoasan Rd. Great service, great suits, great price!!

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter room. You might be lucky!!

The location is really the only thing going for this budget place. It is right in the middle of Khaosan Rd. So, you step right out of the lobby into the throngs of Westerners.

As a budget option, it's ok. The room was tiny. The Internet connection was poor. The bathroom is merely serviceable. The TV was useless. There is a rooftop pool with great views, though.

A pleasant visit considering the loud noise from the street which goes into the early hours of the morning. This area is not for families. Clean, comfortable rooms. Pool was a nice getaway from the busy street. Tourist information in the lobby was very helpful. Restaurant downstairs (cafferino) was outstanding.
Bought some tailored pants from K. Boss - good deal.

We had such an amazing stay here. The rooms were quite small but I felt safe in the hotel and they were of a good quality. One thing I will say is we were at the back of the hotel so despite coming armed with earplugs (as you should if your staying on Khao San) we heard no noise when we returned each evening. The pool was such a joy; being able to swim after a long day in the humidity was heaven. If we did not have such a rigid mapped out route I could have stayed at this hotel longer. But I do know I am a tourist not a traveller and I liked the vibe of the area. A great stay for us!

Cheap, central, air-con, pool, decent wifi.
Rooms are small but fine. The artwork in the rooms really brightens them up and makesStaff are friendly. Rooms towards the back are quieter than those toward the front. Online booking is fast and efficient.

OK, let me clarify budget. After 30 years of travelling Asia, gone are the days of dorm rooms and shared bathrooms. For me, that isn't budget, that's I-havent-got-enough-money-to-travel-but-I'm-going-anyway.
