A very reasonably priced budget hotel. The room was a good size, very clean, nicely decorated and included a fridge. The bathroom was very small and in the wet room style with the shower over the toilet - common in budget hotels across Asia. They emailled us a helpful map when we made our booking which our taxi driver needed to find it.
Location is in a quiet back street so very peaceful but there is absolutely nothing around for eating or drinking on an evening. During the day there is a market with good, cheap local restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk (turn right out of the hotel) but nothing open at night. Walking to major sights (Grand Palace etc) is doable but probably takes about 45 minutes. However it is very close to the stop for the San Saeb canal boat which is an excellent, fast and cheap way to get to downtown, and a very fun experience too.
Staff didn't go out of their way but were pleasant enough and willing to help if asked - e.g. when we checked out and asked the girl on reception to call us a taxi she walked out to the street with us and explained our destination to him in Thai.
