LIKE:
1) I like the sweet and charming receptionist (a chinese pretty lady). She is so helpful and pleasant.
2) The design/style of the hotel is special (that's why it is named as fortville). They have a very special lift
3) It is located near to Kao Shan road (still need to walk around 10 - 15min to reach) and is very near to Phra Arthih Pier (for daily pass boat tour)
4) Have a few eating places (road side stall/restaurant/cafe) nearby. Try the chicken rice stall at the opposite left across the road and mixed rice stall at the left of hotel. One 7-11 beside the hotel and one at the opposite
5) quiet and comfortable

DISLIKE
1) TV is too small and too high
2) No swimming pool (unlike the hotel next door)
3) limited usage of wifi. Poor wifi network in the room
4) water from shower is too scatter , difficult to bath
5) no sufficient space for big luggage
6) no nice view from hotel room
7) rooftop cafe price is slightly high

Overall : Not bad to stay there again

Fortville is really quite brilliant, it is built in the style of a thai fort and is in keeping with the road on which it is situated, Thanon Phra Sumen. This road has ruins of an old city wall running along it, as well as a real fort which is just near Fortville Gueshouse. The theme continues in the rooms, which feel almost like prison cells in a quirky and likeable way.

The rooms are not that big, but they are very clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. The TV's however are a bit small and if i were the management this would be an upgrade priority.

There is free wifi at the hotel - you need to access this with a username and password from reception. The wifi was not always reliable, but connection speeds were good when it was on.

If you stay make sure you check out the rooftop restaurant, its really beautiful up there in the evenings and has unparalled views for a hotel in the Khaosan area.

There are also a great number of restaurants around Phra Athit which are well worth checking out. Just across the road and along towards the river are Joy Luck Club restaurant and also the famous Roti Mataba. Rickys cafe a bit further round and along is also worth checking out.

There are two 7-11 stores right next to the hotel - always handy to have around! ;)

The staff at Fortville are generally friendly, although at times it would be nicer if some of them were more talkative.

The only problem i had at Fortville was Cigarette smoke coming into my room through the air conditioner. I think officially its a non smoking hotel, but there seem to be rampant smoking taking place and my room had smoke coming into it on most nights. Turning off the air con stopped it, but then was really hot!! I think the management should be proactive about the smoking status of the hotel, so that smokers and non smokers both know where they stand.

Some minor issues, no hand soap provided and no privacy door tag to hang on the door.

Room tip: Rooms towards the back are a bit quieter. The rooftop restaurant is open till 1am so rooms on a lower floor will be further away from the music in the restaurant.

We stayed at the Fortville for 2 nights. The rooms were quite compact but very clean. The bed was very low and hard but I actually loved sleeping on it. We could connect to the wifi in the cafe from our room but it did not always work.

The cafe downstairs was really good food but perhaps more expensive than some places in Bangkok (still really cheap). There was 2 7-Elevens within 15 feet and the rooftop bar was nice to sit out in the evening.

The location is really good, close enough for the hustle and bustle of Khao San, but far enough away so you do not get the noise.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay but felt for the rooms were just a little overpriced in comparison to others in the area.

I stayed here for two nights. The room was plain but very clean. There was no wifi connection in our room and we had to use the wifi in the cafe downstairs, I'm not sure if this is true of all the rooms. The guesthouse is very well located about a 10 min walk from Koh San Road and just under 10 min from the river ferry.
