This was my second stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone on a budget looking for clean and quiet accommodation. Rux-Thai is situated just off Loi Kroh which has it's fair share of lively and friendly bars and restaurants but far enough away not to be troubled by any late night noise. The rooms are adequate with all the essentials such as A/C, bathroom, mini bar and cable TV. There is also a restaurant in the foyer serving good food and drinks most of the day. At reception you can rent a safety deposit box for 20baht per day. The staff are friendly and courteous and always willing to help you find a trip or excursion or direct you to the nearest market or whatever else you are looking for.
All in all a pleasant stay, didn't see any fat old men with prostitutes, in fact the majority of people I saw there in my two weeks were young national and international travelers!
If you want to hire a motor bike I would suggest Soi 1 Bikes situated opposite the mini mart on Soi 1, 200 baht per day for a basic scooter which will enable you to explore the city and surrounding areas far more cheaply than taking a tuk tuk.More
