Looking for an nice, affordable and well-located hotel for a first-time trip to Bangkok, I found this gem. Myself and two friends stayed in a 3-bedroom unit for 5 nights recently.
Immediately upon check-in, I noticed a level of friendliness and energy that was beyond any other hotel I'd been to - I was impressed.The staff were young and spoke excellent English, and throughout our stay they were very helpful in providing us with recommendations. They were also quite fun to talk to.
The hotel is located within walking distance to Khaosan Rd, with a 711 and a nice restaurant right next door. We could find a taxi or tuk-tuk just outside typically within seconds. One could take a short walk to a pier to catch a very cheap river taxi that connects to a main train line (the BTS Silom line), via a scenic route during which a few snaps of beautiful Wat Arun could be taken.
The room we stayed in was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Wifi -- one of the most crucial factors for young travelers -- was excellent - fast and reliable. They have two computers that guests can use in the lobby. They even have delicious free snacks and coffee/tea in the morning. They even have their own personalized, specially-designed, family-sized tuk-tuk!
I'll be coming back here again next time I'm in Bangkok.
