“Cool little hotel..”
Reviewed April 15, 2010

Very cool boutique hotel in the middle of the old part of Bangkok, walking distance to a lot of the major attractions like the Grand Palace and Wat Arun. The staff was very kind always greeting us with a smile and soft "hello". And helpful too, they gave us good directions to Khao San rd where there is a very exciting night market. Lots of restaurants near by as well.

Diamond House is a boutique hotel that is perfectly situated in the lovely Banglamphu neighborhood of Bangkok. The room indeed is small and a bit dark but i is clean and in such a perfect neighborhood. We were able to walk to the major wats -- temple of the Emerald Budha and the temple of the Reclining Budha. It is also steps away from the Khao San Road -- a street lined with pubs, street food vendors, retailers & entertainers that is very lively in the evening. It is also around the corner from Ricky's Coffee -- the best cup of joe in the city -- and across the street from Alder the 13th Blues Bar, a great venue with live music nightly.

The hotel also has a nice roof top with a jacuzzi and sitting area. Best of all it is very reasonably priced. We stayed in the second-best option for $40 a night, booking directly with the hotel website. Make sure you print out the address for the taxi cab driver and let him know it is near Khao San Road.

This Hotel was very good. Their chicken with Cashews was great.
Bangkok on the other hand is really noisy. DO not spend more than a couple of days and be careful with Tuk-Tuk drivers. There are always trying to trick you.

I spent 4 nights here and this place IS value for money.. Located just down the road from Khao San Rd district (bars/cafes/restaurants/night markets) you are only a 5-7 minute walk away from all the attractions of the area. Plus its only a 7minute walk to the water taxis!
The down side.. really small rooms which were noisey at night (that city really does not sleep!) But considering everything there is to do in BKK, your not in your room alot anyway! I woud recommend getting a suite instead of the double room and use ear-plugs!
But for a un-beatable location this is it!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights, but would have been comfortable staying longer. Our room was on the second floor and faced the street. A tough noisy, but not bad with the A/C running. At 1200/baht night we were quite happy. Nice and clean. Well designed. TV. Good lighting. Roof top garden with jacuzzi. Nice restaurant with good food and very pleasant staff. A short walk to the main foreigner hub, Grand Palace. etc... You can catch the bus to the Chatuchuk market across the street from the 7-ELEVEN. I forget the bus #, but the hotel staff can tell you. Very convenient!!
