My wife and I stayed here in July 2012. Comfortable, clean rooms. The famous Thai smile was missing when we checked-in but it could be because we arrived at 1am. Breakfast was simple and sufficient. The staff is a mixed bag- some were very friendly while others were efficient but indifferent. Loved the fact that the hotel is close to several important sights. Walking times – Khao San Road (10 minutes), Grand Palace (15 minutes), Sleeping Buddha (20 minutes). Be wary of the touts along the road who tell you that the Palace / temple you want to see is closed for foreigners right now. We smiled politely and kept walking but they were very persistent. Pay attention to the Lonely Planet guide’s tips on avoiding scams. We felt safe in and around the hotel, day and night. Would definitely stay here again.
Khao San and Rambutri roads have a very large number of dining options but those places also get noisy, especially in the evenings. Eat around this hotel if you want a quieter experience. One of May Kaidee’s vegetarian restaurants (and cooking school) is a 2-minute walk from the hotel. There are a couple of laundries in the lanes in front of the hotel (30 to 40 Bhat / kilo for washing. Ironing extra). You can get a SIM card for your mobile phone and re-charge the talk-time on your phone at the 7-Eleven next door to the hotel (open 24 hours). A taxi ride to the Survanabhumi airport costs around 400 Bhat.
