My husband and I stayed in the new building. Upon our arrival from the airport, a young man immediately helped us get our suitcases from the street into the hotel. At reception we were greeted with fresh fruit juice and friendly staff at the front desk. After chek-in, two young men took us and our bags to our building and up to our room. Our Deluxe room was smaller than it seemed from the pictures on the internet. It was, however, very nice and clean, and it had a great balcony. We were on the top floor and on the night it rained it was super audible; it did not bother us, though. The room has A/C that is activated by placing the room key-card inside a slot on the wall. Actually, that is how the power is turned on in the room. The bathroom does not have any air conditioning, and it is pointless to leave the sliding doors open because one wall has windows that have only shutters that let air from the outside circulate. The shutters are locked from the inside. Some bathroom toiletries were provided, it might be best to have some of your favorite neccessities with you, though. The towels were a little ragged on the edges, but were nice and clean. A wardrobe is also in the bathroom, a little odd, we thought. Inside there were two umbrellas and a safe. In the room there is a generous queen size bed with comfy sheets, a mini bar, flatscreen TV, & kettle. No hairdrier. Each day we received two free bottles of water. A great bonus was that there was an elevator in this building. At the main hotel is where the huge buffet breakfast was served. Everything from banana pancakes to fried rice to fresh fruit, etc., etc. One note, the coffee the staff brews is incredibly strong! We like espresso, but the java at Lamphu was stronger than that. Not bitter, just insanely strong. We ate dinner at the hotel once, it was good, but nothing to rave about. One thing to keep in mind, the hotel is in the old part of Bangkok, amidst the crowded streets, the food stalls, and traffic jams. It is also within walking distance of many of the famous sights. Kieep in mind that if a (usually) young man who speaks suprisingly good English comes up to you and tries to tell you that you can not go somewhere because of some reason (like flooding, this time of year) DO NOT believe him. These guys may flash a newspaper in front of you with floodwaters or something else plastered on the cover, but it's a SCAM. If you are ever in doubt, turn around and go back to the hotel and ask. On a good note, there is a little place called Cafe Primavera, 56 Phra Sumen Rd. we had the best pizza there outside of Italy.

Room Tip: Rooms in 2nd building are newer, but smaller. Take your pick.

My girlfriend had been staying at the Lamphu Tree House when I arrived in Bankok for 4-5 nights and we stayed there together for another 3 nights. What a treat as my first experience staying in Bankok.

First lets start with location. Lamphu Tree House is a short walk from Khao San Road, The Grand Palace and the river. Because it's along a main road, it's also very easy to catch a cab if you want to travel around the city. We found it most economical to take a cab to the nearest Skytram station and take it from there.

The room we stayed in was on the 6th floor away from the main building. It was clean, modern, and comfortable. If a shower not draining quickly will rain on your parade, stay away. This was the only flaw in an otherwise perfect living situation.

Breakfast is included and very good. Bacon (mmmm), banana pancakes, coffee, fruit, and even hash browns make a great start to your adventures in Bankok.
The reason this review is 5 star and not 4 is the combination of quality and price. Getting all the features I've described above for the price being charged makes this a great value. Treat yourself and stay here!

This is a great little hotel conveniently located to many of the old town sites. The pool was a nice touch and the lobby area was very inviting. Our room was fairly standard but had nice views of the city. We like a hard bed so it was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast which was included was very good and ample with plenty of choices. This is a great value.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor high enough for a view.

We randomly booked Lamphu Tree House from their website and was not disappointed. The hotel was very clean, our room (which was located in their second building) was very spacious, clean and I loved the format. It was conveniently located & walking distance to nearby restaurants, shops & Khaosan Road - a highly visited tourist night market. Their staff was very friendly and always helpful with directions. Unfortunately the weather was not too accommodating and it poured heavy for 2 of our 3 days so weren't able to make use of their pool. Their complimentary breakfast was the best! All in all, highly recommend Lamphu House!

Room Tip: Although our room in their 2nd building was incredible, highly recommend booking a room in their mai...

We stayed here for one night as a family of two adults and a teenager late October 2013.
I had high expectations based upon the reviews on this site. Unfortunately I was disappointed by our stay. We stayed in a room in the main building and while I am happy with basic amenities, our room was dirty. The bathroom was mouldy and could have used a good scrub -but it hadn't had one for a while. The hand basin was in the main bedroom and the plumbing was decidedly wobbly. The shower had a very low water pressure and took a bit of working out for operation of the on the wall water heater.
The bedroom was basic, very firm bed average linen and air conditioning only on when the key card was inserted into the power slot.
Breakfast was nice and the service was fine. Staff are helpful when needed.
For the price I am easy to please and happy with plain amenities, but I find it hard to excuse dirty surroundings. The other members of our group - 4 rooms in all, found a similar low standard of cleanliness and a little more wildlife.
I would spend a little more and stay elsewhere next time.

If you want to be in the old section of Bangkok, location, location, location. nice small pool. nice staff. great breakfast buffet with service in the lovely pool area outside or in..best banana pancakes! if they have the sticky rice while there be sure to try it. There were lovely afternoon snakes in lobby area. I was in the original building.

I stayed in the Lamphu Tree House for 6 nights during October of 2013.
On my day of arrival, one of the staff members helped us carry our luggage to our room.(which was nice after about 15 hours flying). Another of my first impressions is that the hotel is very neat and well maintained. The Restraunt in the hotel has a good range of Thai foods and also has a range of spirits, coffees and wines. The hotel is in a good location for exploring the Ratakosin area with the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and when leaving this hotel, I was sad to be leaving the hotel staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Bangkok
