“Not as pretty as the picture”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

First impressions were that this hotel looks a lot better in the photos than in reality, but overall not bad for a budget option.

Our room (418) was pretty rustic, the shower had absolutely no pressure, the bed was rather hard, and the air-con hummed - but I suppose you get what you pay for, and for $30 a night I suppose it wasn't too bad. Free wifi was pretty hopeless though with no stable connection.

The winning feature of this hotel is definitely the rooftop pool. A massive relief with all that humidity. Also located on Khao San Rd is a plus, if that's what your looking for. Had no issue with any noise from Khao San - which was because the soundproofing.

A 7-11 type convenience store, foreign exchange, and boots pharmacy at your doorstep also adds points.

Average stay, but once again not bad for a budget option.

Right amongst the action of kaosan Rd. Cheap, clean rooms and friendly staff. Roof top pool puts it above other similar accommodation in the area for the same price. The tuk tuk drivers and suit sellers out the front are a bit annoying but that's just kaosan Rd.

Located in the back packer's heart of Bangkok, this hotel offers good value for money - but stops short of service with a smile. The rooms are ok, not the finest or cleanest, but perhaps on par with what you'd expect in return for that money. It can be noisy at nights as it's right on the main party road - so just something to be mindful of if that's not your scene!

Oh, and the rooftop swimming pool...don't be fooled by the pictures. You'll want a shower within 5 seconds of getting in ;)

I stayed at this hotel for two days in May!
the hotel is clean and pleasant with a nice pool. The main thing is the location which is great.
You step outside of the hotel and you are near al of the temples, restuarants, markets and food stalls. Then at night the Khaosan Road turns into party district and there are street parties buckets and shisha galore!
The only one thing is that they make you pay if you want to leave your baggage for the day after check out in the hold room which is a bit annoying!
I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a great location as apposed to luxury, its no Hilton! But would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Thailand!

OK. In Thailand, even in Khao San Road, it's not easy to find a "Standard" hotel, with Pool,
Clean, efficient and tidy...

... BUT the TV was smaller than my Laptop!!!

OK you don't go to Khao San to watch TV - But the One Movie chanel did show good movies during Chill-out/horizonatl/after sex in the afternoon time...But!

AND the Internet was a chore! Individual passwords Everytime you log-in -
AND Every time it stops working!!!

Note: I paid for a Supeior room, without checking first (More expensive than similar nearby) -
maybe it was actually a Standard room? But it did have a (Silent) mini fridge.
Spacious Bathroom (at the expense of the size of the bedroom - why?)

Good: Nice, comfortable, on Khao San Road, Air con, with freindly security guard at entrance
Bad: as above, and the pool was a bit boring No plants etc.

Staff were efficient, polite and smiled

But... First/Last impression the lift/Elevator carpet was always untidy (Small problem)
and petty signs stating that you would be fined if.....
But this is Khao San....

Room Tip: If you have never been to Khao San before this is safe & on the street (close to the alley, for...

My wife and I stayed at the rikka inn for 6 nights and loved it. The location is great, as you are right I. The heart of khao San rd and not to far from the some amazing sights. The only problem was the wifi occasionally dropped out but all in all great place. How could you not love a place with pictures of food on the walls!

Whilst I really enjoyed this hotel I felt it lacking a little in personality considering its location. The pool was lush after a day out in bangkok. The room was a little small and the window faced a wall but it was clean and comfy. Not as noisy as I thought it would be either, it's certainly more comfy than some hotels on Khaosan!!
