Having just arrived on a LONG flight to Bangkok, and quite a stressful route in getting to the famous Khaosan Road, arriving at the Rikka in was amazing as it was a great hotel to visit first - compared to many of the other places in south east asia - this was one of the more luxuarious hotels!
We just had a standard double, which using hostelworld.com meant we secured the room before we even left paying a 10% deposit. I think the room worked out about £20 a night but sharing between two is still very cheap! Rooms were clean, and spread over 5 levels with a lovely pool and lounging area on the roof! You could either leave a 1000THB deposit for your key or leave your passport and there were two computers free of charge to guests to use the internet.
To locate Rikka Inn - the sign is high up on the top of the buildings but you cant get too lost as the Khaosan Road isnt that long - so if you come to the end like we did we knew we'd gone too far! it is located about half way up and to get to the reception you have to go through like a walkway between two shops. If you just look out for the famous 7ELEVEN - it is next door! really handy as they are all open late for snacks and water.
I think we had one of the back rooms which we could still here noise from clubs around the Road. We only stayed for 3 nights and having been so jetlagged and going out on the second night we only heard the noise on our last night - wasn't so bad we couldnt sleep but I suggest if you don't want ot be in the hub of all the Brits drinking abroad you stay somewhere a few streets away! It is however perfect as you don't need to spend money on tuktuks getting home as you are going out pretty much nextdoor!
It was also great location for going to the river and out on day trips as everyone knows where Khaosan is if you get lost
I recommend! :)
