“Outstanding 5-star place”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Not that much a place for backpackers because its room is about US$50 and no dorm is provided but the place is as great as many star graded hotel in Bangkok.

Staff is extremely helpful and friendly, ready to give you a lot of tips about the city. But it's Thailand and we expected this quality of service.

Our room is spacious with soft mattress, good ventilation and homey decoration. It's like staying in your good friend's home but a 4- or 5-star service. We enjoyed our stay greatly!

This is our first choice when staying in Bangkok.

The accommodation is perfect for a short stay - it's close to some great kitchens, near the MRT & BTS Skytrain, close for sightseeing and shopping.

The owner is extremely friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable, always giving great tips if you're stumped on what to do / in what order to see the sights.

We love this place; we're already booked to return at the end of March.

You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

Easy access to the MRT and BTS Skytrain so we got to all the sights without any problem. Fun area for nightlife or just walking around. Everyday, the staff gave us tips for the fastest and cheapest way to get to our sights. They also recommended great local eats and told us how to stay safe. Breakfast was simple but filling and delicious. Our room was spotless and our laundry was quick and clean. This is one of the best hostel we've ever stayed at. The staff is definitely top 3 on our list. It felt like home away from home.

Rooms are big, clean and quiet. The owner is wonderful, she cares a lot about her guests and can give you a lot of information. The sky train and the metro are just a few minutes away so it is a very recommendable guest house if you wish to stay in modern Bangkok.

love the location, the great food that is around it and of course urban house itself. stayed for 3 nights at the studio (studio-type room) and it really felt like staying in a service apartment, a home away from home. getting there from the airport was no issue at all (had given the phone number for the taxi to contact and ask for directions), and the manager was kind enough to be there at the studio when the taxi pulled up. check in was a breeze and no issues at all.

the manager Kwang is very kind and also has great suggestions on where to go and where to eat. Also where to avoid and where/when to be careful. very helpful and a good friend indeed.

all in all, definitely would come back again

Room Tip: i didn't stay in the urban house itself so am unable to comment on the rooms there, but i would...
