“Cheap and Cheerful”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

We stayed here for one night while traveling from southern Thailand to Cambodia. Found it when we got there, and was very cheap, but very good value for money! Room was clean, tidy, had a great tv, comfortable beds, good A/C and clean bathroom. The bathroom did have like a gap in the wall which led to the corridor, but no one could see into the bathroom, but when you walk down the corridor you can hear what people are doing in the bathroom - which is awful!
The hotel also has a great swimming pool which is worth going in, even if it is a little small.
It is right slap bang in the middle of Khao San road which is the place to be in Bangkok for backpackers. Overall had a great stay here and would come again!

Room Tip: Haggle on the price! Receptionists are quiet friendly and used to haggling.

Rikka Inn is a good option if you're looking for a cheap sleep in the Bangkok's Old Town.
The location is the best and the worst of this hotel. Being so central (Khao San Road) makes it easy to walk around the area and you can have a nice walk to the Wat Pho. The room was clean and nice but being so cheap makes it attractive to party-goers so it might get noisy when you want to sleep.

Other than that friendly staff and Nice pool.

Throughout our month trip we had been staying at 300 baht accomodation, but it was our last night and we thought we would treat ourselves, we had got a bit fed up of Bangkok by then.
It was 1000baht for a lovely clean and well decorated room with a/c.
There was water, a fridge, a brilliant bathroom and a safe.
The best bit was the wonderful swimming pool at the top of the building, which looks over all of Bangkok, and was our main reason for staying. There was a tiny bit of noise, but considering the location it was way less than we expec
The staff were efficient and nice, although it was annoying to have a 1000bath deposit on the key, but apart from that, everything was wondeful, with free computers with internet and a brilliant location, it was just what we were looking for!

I stayed two nights here and it as ok: the room was tidy and clean, the aircon and wifi worked fine and the swimming pool was great.

The staff was ok and treated me fine, but I did not feel welcome or at home.

I still stayed in Bangkok for 5 more nights and decided to switch hotels getting a better option for a better price, so I would just recommend this hotel as a plan b and for stopovers.

We just recently stayed at the Rikka Inn in Bangkok and thought it was a relatively pleasant stay. The rooms are kind of small (but can't complain with the price!) but are very clean and include a safe which is great. The location is amazing, right in the middle of Kao San Road... lots of restaurants, food vendors, and markets during the day and night. Also, attractions like the Grand Palace and Reclining Buddha are in walking distance (approximately twenty minute walk). Don't believe people when they say the attraction is closed or you need certain attire to enter, these are scams. The grand palace is open daily and provides appropriate clothes for you to borrow with a small deposit that you get back at the end of the day. The Rikka Inn is in quite a busy area and can be kind of loud at night, that was our only complaint. The pool was awesome to go for a dip after walking around all afternoon!

Rikka Inn is slightly more expensive than other places on Khao San Road, but definitely worth it if it is your first time in Southeast Asia. The rooftop pool is nice and relaxing and they have two computers in the lobby downstairs, which is handy. There's a post office and a Seven Eleven mini mart about 10 yards away. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms are small but perfectly fine if you get one of the basic rooms. However if you're easily bothered with noise, it's worth noting that it's on a busy, lively road. Also the staff aren't very cheery and communication can be a bit problematic. All in all, a good stay, would recommend it unless you are ultra-fussy!

Room Tip: Double check wheather you're getting a basic or superior room at reception
