“Great value, friendly staff, cold AC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Stayed here 3 nights in May 2013, traveling with a friend. We got a twin room (two twin beds), with en-suite bath/shower and aircon. The shower was a "real" one, with curtain and separate from the toilet. Water was always hot, and aircon was always cold. Felt secure with cameras all about, secure locks on the room doors, and a front gate that closes at night. Staff was very friendly, we even ended up having a few drinks with them as we were waiting to go out. They were always willing to help give suggestions or directions, or just shoot the breeze. There is a 24 hr front desk, so it is easy to fly in late and have an easy check-in. Location is nice because it is about 15 minutes walk from Khao San Road, but not close enough to be too loud. It can be a bit difficult to find the guesthouse by taxi at night (definitely use the Thai directions from their website), but once you do, you can get back easily. Would definitely stay again if I find myself in this part of BKK.

Room Tip: If booking through an online third party, be sure to email Penpark directly (or leave notes in reser...

Only a ten minute walk to Khao San, Penpark is tucked away and pleasant. The AC room was nice but service was minimal and the staff didn't go out of their way to make your stay the most enjoyable. There are some drinks and ice cream to buy, but no food. Good for quiet place and the Wifi is good.

We have stayed in several places around the khao San area and we really enjoyed pen park. The rooms are clean and big. Nice windows and a fan room works just fine. Share bathrooms are nice and clean as well. Large outside space with shaded tables and grassy area. Also set back a bit from the main roads so a nice retreat from the bangkok craze. We have stayed here twice and will stay again, also the staff is very kind which is always a perk. Fan room double goes for 550 baht just under $20 a night.

We liked the location (close to Khao San road, but fare enough for a good night of sleep). The rooms are very spacious and clean and the air con works! The communal bathrooms could have been more clean and definately need a renovation. Breakfst costs extra.

Was staying at this hotel alone for a few days during the Songkran festival of 2013. A total of almost 30 different traveler from all around the world met up here for the 2nd time in a row for the Songkran festival. The greatest point about this hotel is the location, it is very near the heart of the party of Bangkok; Khao San Road, not more than a breezy 15 minutes walk. I took the new air-conditioned deluxe room which is in the new block. The air conditioner is new and gets very cold very fast; which is a very good thing in Bangkok. The bed is huge and comes with a flat screen TV. The bathroom is roomy and have good water pressure. The restaurant downstairs serve rather good breakfast for about 100 Baht. Another good point that most people may miss is the rooftop of the hotel, it provides an excellent view of the Chao Phraya River and some part of the city.

Room Tip: The air-conditioned deluxe rooms in the new block are great.

Me and my partner stayed here in a twin room (asked for double) with shared bathroom facilities at the end of January. Not bad price but can't stay we will be rushing back. Rooms were very basic, ours absolutely stinks of smoke (206 I think). Beds and bedding very old. Whole place had a prison like feel to it. On the plus side, bathroom facilities were clean, and we did see some of the 'deluxe' accommodation past reception which looked much better.
Overall, can't say I will return. There's cheaper and much nicer just one street away.
