The Penpark Place Hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Ko San Road. Being this far away the hotel is much quieter than the guest houses in town.

The rooms in Penpark place are simple but pleasant and the small bar area is handy.

Good place for the money.

Great intro to the city. Rooms were very clean and staff friendly. The location is super..only 5mins from Ko San Road. It is situated in a quiet alley which is a great escape from the chaos of busy traffic and tuk tuk offers.

Take one of their cards in case taxi drivers cannot find it. 6 thumbs up!

The rooms are really nice large, commumal bathroom very clean, the staff lovely and helpful. Really nice cheap breakfasts and really cheap beer. The garden and socal areas are well maintained and there are laundry facilities. Quite area and close to kosan road.

However we booked to catch a mini bus to Hua Hin with a taxi to pick us up from the hotel at 5.30pm to get the 6pm bus. 1000 bath tried barter and told that this is the flat rate. Waited for the taxi for a taxi no showed asked the travel agent who said no worries just wait. At 6.00pm still no taxi an english ex-pat explained to us that the taxi cost 50 bath and the mini bus cost 180bath. We soon found out there was no taxi no bus and she had pocketed our money and found the whole thing very funny!

The ex-pat kindly sorted us a taxi and although getting a bus was toatally confusing and a bit of a disaster we eventually arrived in Hua Hin at midnight. Do not trust this woman!!!

However the hotel itself is very nice and we would stay there again.

Stayed there for one night (~900 bat). Moved there because Happy House hostel, where we planed to stay, didn't have any free room at the moment. Located about 7–10 minutes from Kaosan by feet. Nice and really quite real living (not touristic) neighborhood around. Room was the way better that Happy House one.
Will stay there at our next time in Bangkok. Worth money. Love it.

Penpark Place is a large institution. However, the staff took interest in us and helped us whenever necessary. Our double room was simple and very user-friendly. A hot shower in a spacious and clean bathroom, and mattress that seemed brand new made our nights there quite blissful.

The place is quiet and is almost on the river front, giving it a bit of freshness. The only downside of our stay - and not something that Penpark management can do much about - is the old construction site next door. Building activity there seems to have ceased at a very intial stage a long time ago and it was sad to look out onto such an unpleasant area from our window.

There are many other budget digs around this area and we did not get to investigate the others. However, this area is very relaxing overall, and Penpark Place was a good option. We would gladly stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double room on the second floor in the southern wing which looked out onto the unplea...

I had a bad case of travellers sickness (am I making that up? I don't know... it was bad though) and couldnt' leave this room for a day... Luckily it was clean, the bed was comfy and the tv had a movie channel which meant I got to watch and fall asleep to decent movies all day!!! The staff were friendly and the hotel is placed close enough to the party area of Khao san that you can walk but far enough away so that you are not up all hours! Decent!
