“Best guesthouse on bangkok!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

So neat & clean you could literraly eat on the ground! Service si excellent, staff is very kind, and rooms are simple but nice... All this for a very decent price. The only problem is you have to book in advance as they are always full...

This place is the most friendly, helpful and clean place I've stayed in the past 2 months! The shower area is cleaner than all the en-suites I've had. The staff let us check in a 5am when we wasn't supposed to check in until 1pm! They also gave us information about how to get everywhere on buses, where to go and how much it would be. The room has air-conditioning and really comfortable beds with a duvet. They also provide towels, breakfast, free wifi, free PC's and a laundry service. Excellent!!

Room Tip: Our room (101) next to reception was away from other rooms so not noisy. It had A/C and was close en...

I stay there for two nights. We arrive late at the midnight due to the delayed flight but the host, Shan Shan wait for our arrival and welcome us with smile make us feel like home. The guesthouse is clean and comfortable and its cool although there is no aircond with fans only. We stay in the three bed room upstair and the room is big. Staff are all very friendly and the simple breakfast was GREAT! You can ask about travel information from Shan Shan and she will give useful information. The area is comfortable and wireless is available. There is also two computer to online. Only the floor up stair is tilted due to the old structure of the wood house which is over 60 years. Overall the stay was great!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor is tilted due to the old structure of wood house so if you do mind about that...

We really enjoyed our stay at khaosan baan Thai.

The rooms are a good size and the air-conditioning works well. The shared toilet an shower facilities were fine- never had to wait to use either and the guest house was full when we were there.

The bed are very hard and very low. This did not cause and problems for us.

The whole guest house is immaculately clean.

The cooked breakfast was an added bonus - fried egg, 2 hotdogs, toast and marmalade.

There are also soft drinks, noodles and snacks available to purchase at good prices and there is hot water and a microwave which is great if you are on a budget.

The staff are very helpful and assisted us with booking our onward travel. They also sold tickets and activities but we never felt any pressure to buy these

The location is great- walking distance from the khoasan road and lots of bars and restaurant. We also walked to the grand palace but it might be a bit far to walk for some people in the heat! The staff are also able to give helpful information about which buses to take and rough prices for tuk tuks.

The wifi at the guest house works well and there are two computers in reception that are free to use until 10.30pm.

The other guests here kept themselves to themselves anddue to the structure of the builing guests are asked to keep noise to a minimum so I probably wouldn't recommend this place for solo travellers looking to meet others or anyone looking to party!

Overall we felt that this guest house was very good value for money and we would stay here again.

we stayed here for three nights on arriving in bangkok,its a great little place and theres always people there,the lady behind the reception is so friendly and just laughs at everything which is funny but she also told us some useful stuff,such as never pay more than 40 baht to get anywhere on a tuk tuk,that came in handy and we never did after that.

the price is a little more than weve paid for other places but then again no other place has been so friendly

thanks to the staff

What a great little place. If you want khao San road without the noise & teenagers then stay here! It was great to go enjoy everything khao San & the the surrounding areas had to offer but actually get some sleep at the end of the night as only 15 min walk away. Clean, shared bathrooms were very clean, our room was large with good air con & the staff were so helpful with any questions you may have. Great value for the £12 (ish) per night. Great restaurants locally too!
