New Siam Guest House II

Reviewed October 13, 2011

It was my first time staying in the Khao San area (usually Sukhumvit rd) and this guesthouse is very adequate for the price. It's quiet, well located and rooms are as depicted by other travellers photos. I found it handy to the river ferry stops and particularly the amulet Market - reached by walking through the university. The beds are not the foam or latex - they are sprung however firm - not sloppy. It's not a super personal guesthouse where they bend over backwards to help you, however they are certainly not rude and tried their best when I asked for directions to the post office (getting the map out and circling where to go etc). Basic supplies are available from the cafe from early till late.

New Siam 2 Guesthouse is an excellent choice with reasonable value for money while staying in Bangkok on a budget trip. We stayed here twice, in august and september 2011 while travelling through Southeast Asia.

Personally, we did not like Thailand as a tourist destination at all. There are scams, ripoffs and animal abuse everywhere (We found Malaysia and Cambodia to be much more fun and visitor friendly). At the same time, we found that New Siam II Guesthouse was an excellent exception to the rule.

New Siam has four places, each tailored to a specific traveller. New Siam 1 and 3 I understand are for the low-low budget traveller. New Siam Riverside actually looks a bit more like a hotel (excellent cheap food in the restaurant. We ate there lots) and New Siam 2 is in between.

New Siam 2 is graded just above the super cheap Kao San Road hostels. It means the rooms are maybe slightly more expensive, but absolutely super clean. We cannot recall ever having seen a single animal or insect in our room. All rooms come with „Warm water” which actually means that you have running warm water every day. The food is basic but good and we never found any issues with hygene.

We have had one single occasion in three weeks stay (dispersed over two months) where a heated croissant smelled funny on the first bite. We called the waitstaff who instantly replaced it with a fresh one. 3 minutes later the manager was at our table appologizing. She explained thad just taken a new oven into operation and appearantly there was something wrong with it. It turned out a bit of plastic packaging had fallen into it and had melted. Other than that, things have been close to perfect.

The new siam 2 was the first budget accomdation we had booked on the start of our south east asia travels. The room was clean with a tiny balcony and bathroom, it did have a safety deposit box which is a plus. Exactly what we expected based on previous reviews and the price we paid. The location was excellent for us as we had based all our day trips from Koh san road. Would recommend but there are plently of alternatives in that area. The food at the restraunt was good, it did have a pool but we didnt use it so unable to comment on that.

I have to admit the location is not bad. busy in a way esp. if u like khaosan rd u will love this location. What really turns me off and that has to do with the whole new siam policy is that it is all about money!
u come in , and there is hardly a warm welcome sawasdee!
it is more about ;did u make reservation? Pay the 200 baht for the key, pay money for the locker. Oh u dont have a key we can provide a lock, we have .. so pay ........ whatever the price is!
it is all about money, not about service and being friendly is not included ... in a way so unthai!
food is ok
location is ok
rooms are ok
but cosy and friendly? ...... forget it!

We've previously stayed at New Siam II and were not disappointed - it still ticks the boxes after our stay from many years ago. Staff are efficient (including handing over train tickets we had couriered from another company upon check in), the cafe does a good breakfast, and the rooms while small and fairly basic are clean, comfortable and secure. All you really need from a hotel in really good location near to the main sites and close, but quiet, proximity to KSR.

This hotel is in a great location. It is within walkable distance of the backpacker area but is down a quiet street which makes it a more pleasant stay. The ensuite shower room was small but adequate. The staff were pleasant enough (apart from one who clearly hadn't had any hospitality training) but not overly friendly. Sleep quality is mainly ok apart from the occasionally closing of the room doors which are heavy and slam. The restaurant offers reasonably priced food and drink. The banana pancakes made an excellent brunch. I would stay here again for a few nights.

Hotel in good location near Khao San road, but little bit away from all the noise. Next to all a traveler can need and yet in a quiet side street. Clean and okay sized rooms. Have stayed there several times and will probably again. Our stay was peaceful and happy.
