“Best value small hotel on Khoasan Road...”
Reviewed 12 October 2010

Best value small hotel on Khoasan Road. New rooms and rooftop pool give this the edge over the other hotels, at a slightly cheaper price (50-150baht cheaper than their competition who DONT have the facilities offered here). Check your room first before paying as some of them have a slight damp smell. Overall, a fantastic choice in the 1000baht price range

We stayed at the Rakki Inn for 2 nights 6-8 September. The rooms are small but very clean. There is free internet access in the reception area. The pool on the roof top was excellent. The down side to this hotel is the noise from the Khao San Road, the bars play very loud music until the very early hours of the morning ( 5.00 am) and the constant thud can be very draining. If I went again I would stay one street behind, Soi Rambutti much quieter.

We stay at the Rikka inn in the deluxe room with private balkony. We had to find out that the images the hotel show on their website are fake. But we liked it anyway. The hotel is directly situated at Koasan road so it is a bit loud in the evening and nighttime. But if you don´t mind a bit of music than it is a great place to stay. They do not provide breakfast but just next door you find a lot of places who served a good breakfast.
The rooms are clean. 1 minus point is the bathroom when you shower the whole floor get wet because the shower is not separated from the toilet.
The staff was a bit grumpie, so no tip for them!!!

We stayed at the Rikka Inn at the end of our trip to catch a 2am flight home. we booked one night and a late check out til 11pm (which we paid another full nights charge for but it was worth doing as it gave us a whole extra day).

The Rikka inn is right in the heart of Khaosan rd, ideally located to visit the grand palace, emerald buddah and the reclining buddah and not far from the river (all approx 100 baht by tuk tuk - just make sure that you ask to be taken straight there and not via any restaurants or tailors etc).

The rooms are small but new and perfectly formed with everything you need - safe, fridge, tv, towels, water etc. The beds are very comfy and the air conditioner is huge and incredibly efficient, if not too efficient - it definitely goes up to eleven!

The bathrooms are also small but spotlessly clean with an electric shower so hot water is never a problem.

There is a bar close by which plays loud music very late into the early hours of the morning (5am). If you are not in that bar but trying to sleep you will definitely need ear plugs.

There is a great pool on the roof with super views over Bangkok, lovely to cool down in at the end of the day.

The only slight negative were the staff. They didn't seem overly interested in us, more in their texting or chatting. You have to pay in full up front and we had to leave 1000 baht in cash as deposit for the key. On our departure they insisted on us signing a form to say that we had had our cash returned before handing our cash over - it was all a little weird and the receptionist was a little obnoxious - very unusual for thailand.

Overall though we had a great stay at Rikka and would certainly stay again and recommend it for budget, clean accommodation in a great location (if khaosan is your thing - it isn't for everyone!)

Pretty good stay, right in the heart of Khao San Road, suited us well. Nice pool on the roof, which was welcome at the end of a hot day sight seeing.

Great budget hotel on Khaosan rd. Great base for sightseeing around the old town and the grand palace. Very nice and frendly staffs which allowed us to have a early check in. Unbeatable location just right on Khaosan rd. Cool rooftop swimming pool. Internet and wifi are free of charge during the stay. Room was clean and spotless everyday. The also had a very good foot massage on the lobby floor. 7-eleven store was also located in the lobby and it opened 24/7. Great Value!
