“Two thumbs up for CLEANLINESS & BREAKFAST”
Reviewed March 24, 2011

This is definitely a 90% positive review for this hostel. Breakfast is awesome, a lot to choose from whether you're vegetarian or sausage lover in the morning. I always prefer rice and some hotdog and egg, very Filipino style.

During my stay, I always left my room a little messy due to early pick-up for private and group tour but I never got irritated everytime I went back. I felt like I reserved a new room, very clean and my things were well-organized, even dirty clothes were neatly folded and hung. Amazing! They have the most OC (Obsessive Compulsive) Over Cleaners! Great Job!

Just 10% negative for the rooftop, it actually has a big potential for nice and comforting lounge but not maintained.

Excellent hostel (booked though hostel world) but closer to a hotel, new, well presented, large rooms all with aircon & ensuite. TV and fridge in room. Tours desk that offers numerous tours - we took the one to Floating Market - Bridge Over River Qwai - Tiger Temple for 600 baht pp. Don't take their offer of 650B taxi from airport-should not be more than 450 inc. expresseay fee - go to taxi desk outside airport and talk to a driver. They can also order you a taxi back to airport from hostel for 400B.
Breakfast was good, location great - Koh San Road and temples all walking distance. Little bit hard to find but well worth it once you do!

Room View place is a little gem. We booked 4 nights but ended up staying 14. The hotel had great little rooms, sparse, but very clean. Great views over the city, and great little balcony.
Its situated on a small residential road near Khao San, about 10 mins walk away. The staff were very friendly and the free breakfasts were different every day, the Thai dishes were especially great. Dont bother with expensive places in Bangkok, unless your a hotel snob, and demand room service and other such fluff (remember your here to see Bangkok, not live in the hotel)...
Plus just hop on the bus from Airport to Khao San, and walk to the hotel, no need for expensive transfers.

This was our first hotel on our trip in asia. The hotel is located in a lane 10-15 minutes to the tourist area. The staff was quiet nice and the room was ok. The breakfast was really great as they served fresh coffee, juice, eggs, sausages, cereals and so on.
But we think it was a bit too expensive and we couldn't sleep so well. The hotel was very noise cause the walls and windows weren't that thick. But for our first stay in Bangkok it was ok.
I have to mention the roof top. It was very nice to sit on the roof and enyou the sunset.

Good:
-Very clean room
-Free buffet breakfast: cereal, Thai food, fruits, toast with butter and jam, coffee
-Free bottle of water per person per day
-Located in a quiet area
-Near Khao San (15 minute walk)
-Free wifi
-400 baht only for taxi transport to or from hotel

Not so good:
-Would be better if the BTS/MTR were closer.

I liked out stay at Roof View. If you are looking for a place near Khao San but not as chaotic, this is the place for you. The staff, esp. Wang is also very friendly and helpful in answering our questions.

Great place, staff were very helpful and the breakfast amazing. Handy to everywhere....within walking distance to most touristy places, if not taxi or tuk tuk on hand within minutes.

Room were small but all we needed to lay our weary bodies. Air conditioning worked great. Lovely shower!

I stayed 3 times at Roof View Place and I recommend this place to anyone who loves to stay at a basic but very clean and cosy place. The hostel is in a real Thai area. Dark but wonderful, peaceful...a great experience just far enough from Khao San Area but still close to places to eat, drink and shop. The staff was great. I loved it and for sure I will go back again if ever again in BKK.
