“A quieter guest house near KSan road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

I have stayed here numerous times when passing through Bangkok. I usually get room 406 which is high enough above the street to reduce the pedestrian traffic noise and also gives you a great view over the nearby wat (temple). The double rooms with bathroom are pretty good value, I looked at their non-bathroom rooms and found them a little small.

If you want a quieter room get 307 or 407 which faces the back side. No traffic or people noise there at all but also now view.

The staff are pretty friendly and the daily cleaning of the rooms is done well.

The restaurant downstairs has some pretty good food and the prices are very comparable to the nearby roadside places.

I have stayed at many places in this area over the past 15 years and the Bella Bella also seems to have one of the cheapest in-house wifi prices. If you don't have a laptop then you will need to use the computers provided with the coin-pay-to-use, which is not nearly as cheap.

Its also a great place to get local transport as the Bangkok transit buses run along the main street (only 1 block away) to the main train station and other useful destinations. Plus the water taxi station is also a 5 min walk away.

The only negative I can think of is some of the rooms mattress' are a little "lumpy" so check it before taking a certain room.

There are certainly many guest houses along this area behind the temple (and I have tried them all over the years) but I keep returning to the Bella Bella for the friendly staff and great room views from the top floors.

Room Tip: room with a view = 306/406 really quiet rooms = 307/407

In a street full of cheap hostels with almost identical prices this is a nice friendly place. Rooms are good value and all the restaurants and nightlife of Khao San Road is right on the doorstep.
They have left-luggage facility and wifi (pay extra for it). Staff generally very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Always ask to see the room first(common practice in Thailand). Generally more choice if you get the...

This guest house is only a 5 minute walk from the main backpacker strip, khao san road. It is close enough that you can get there quick, but far enough to spare you the loud noise through the night. It was very well priced compared to surrounding competitors. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

We paid 490 baht for a basic twin room with aircond. It is near to khao San road but not too close. There was no free wifi available but you can purchase usage rights for a fee.
Good location but I would suggest looking at what deals are on Agoda as we got a similar room for cheaper.

This place is basic. For a double with a fan and shared bathroom it's 300 baht.

Don't let the basic room fool you though, Bella Bella is clean, with good food and in a great location on Ratanakosin Island.

No worries here if u want to chill out in BKK without spending too much.

Room Tip: Floors at the back might be better sleeps.

A cheap accommodation in this hotel two nights and the experience was positive. The hotel will have the street noise at night, like all the hotels in the area. Keep pace, however, to sleep at night even if the noise does. Outside the front door will immediately begin a busy shopping street, street food and other goodies! Reception of a nice girl:). This hotel is often full, book early! I come here for the next trip to thailand.

If you want to be close to Koh San Road but still have some quiet at night then this is perfect.
We stayed for 3 nights and slept very well despite being in the heart of Bangkok. The beds are a bit hard but we also chose a dubbel room with shared bathroom. They have plenty of other rooms aswell.
Staff is very friendly and it is clean.
However; we had matrasses standing outside the toilets on every level, which feels a bit funny. They seamed clean tho.
The best thing is that you can rent a safe in the reception for only 20bath per day.
Good deal for the money according to us!

Room Tip: We had room 403
