“Very clean!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Try to get a room on highest floor. It's almost silent (for Bangkok) and a view above the roofs and the new bridge. Very friendly staff. It's a 10 minutes walk to the backpacker district. Would do it again.

Stayed January 2013, traveled solo

Roof View Place is about a 10min walk from Khao San Road, which is where you want to go!

The room wasn't fabulous, but it was fine. The shower was interesting. It had two shower heads - one hot and one cold. It was a task trying to get them both aiming in the same place. I have no complaints - the room was clean, no bugs and free water!

The room we booked had air conditioning, which is a must! It was our first night in Thailand and I don't think we would have survived without it.

There are a lot of comments about the ladyboy at the reception. She was not the happiest person, but she definitely was not rude and was very helpful. We only stayed one night so did not have to interact with her much.
We also used the ordered taxi service that they provide - 650THB from airport to Roof View Place. This was very helpful as we arrived very late after a long flight!

The breakfast was amazing. Eggs, fruit, noodles, toast and coffee!

I would recommend this if you need somewhere to stay that is good value for money, and private rooms.

A great base. We stayed here at the end of our recent holiday in Thailand. It's near enough to the action but is set in a little neighbourhood of narrow streets, small shops and bars. There's some great, cheap street food nearby too.

Our room was a good size. Included a tv, safe and fridge. 2 free bottles of water were put into the fridge daily. The towels were changed every day and the sheets every other. Spotlessly clean. There's a small luggage lift so you don't have to carry your bags upstairs yourself.

Breakfast was included. juice, coffee, toast, jam, fresh fruit. Eggs (fried/scrambled/omelette) and usually a noodle dish. They had a fridge with beer, coke etc which you paid for at reception.

The staff were helpful. except for one (but we found the 'diva' behaviour quite amusing!!)This didn't affect our stay at all so I would recommend Rood View Place to anyone. It's not far to the river, so we got around most places by catching a ferry to the sights. Much cheaper and quicker than taxis.

I really recommend this hotel for its location. It's very close to Kao Shan and the rooms are very comfortable; there are no luxuries in this hotel, very basic everything but it's enough and great value. Rooms are clean and breakfast is great. There are lots of comments about the ladyboy at reception and, yes, she's unpleasant and a bit rude sometimes but the rest of the staff is very helpful.

Ive stayed in bankok several times; this has been my favourite so far for the area. If you are looking for a party, i dont think this would be the best choice, but I like how the nightlife is close if you choose to. Great people working here and my room was well maintained.

We reserved a room by phone getting a better rate than internet (!) and it worked out. Not far from Khao San Road and many other BKK attractions. Rooms are standard size and very clean. Breakfast included which is a nice plus (fruits/toast & jam/tea/coffee or thai style noodles, omelette or any style eggs on request). The whole building lacks in character and the staff is not overly attentive and informative. But the price is right for what you actually get.

I stayed here for 3 nights on the first part of my solo adventure around the world. I chose this hotel because of the roof terrace where i thought it would be a great spot to meet fellow travellers. I was very wrong about this! I spent quite a few hours each day up there and only saw staff from the hotel. The only people staying there at the time didn't speak English so maybe I was just unlucky but I did feel disappointed. Also the receptionist was so grumpy and this again tainted my stay at this hotel. On the plus side the room was standard and clean, no bed bugs or grizzly roaches to be seen so that was a bonus. Breakfast was sufficient and tea and coffee all day was a bonus. Location was good being away from Khao Sarn Road, but only by 10 minutes walk, so it was nice and quiet. Wi-fi in the room was good. I did feel it was expensive and having passed through Bangkok 6 times on my travels I have definitely stayed in cheaper places of the same standard but with a smile on reception!
