“very small room - good location”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The exterior sign of the hotel announces very well, I was disappointed about the room which was very very small but clean. The breakfast was quite good with a variety of food. The hotel is very well located, closed to Khao San Road and the canal to take the ferry. The area is quiet and not noisy with many small restaurants around.The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: none in particular

This cheap hotel comes with good location (10-12 min walking from Kao Shan road), nice staff, clean interior, good and enough breakfast, A/C, wifi, safe, refrigerator, TV, balcony. They even have a small elevator for the baggage (or the elderly, but not without a life insurance ;O)).

There are plenty of room for packing out.

The building itself is not the main road but in a small lane 2-300 meters off from Samsen road so the rooms are quiet. Sometimes you can hear the street noise, but don't forget, it is Bangkok :O)

The hotel's community area is more than average, it could be developed to achieve the generally good level of the other services.

Room Tip: Get a room on the higher floors, it is better to get farther from the street :O)

We stayed here on the start of our travels. Staff were friendly and even allowed me to ring an airline from the phone with no charge. When we got a taxi she bartered prices with taxi companies for us. The hotel was clean with a lovely and plentiful breakfast each morning. Would stay here again. Only 15 walk to khoa san and felt comfortable as a group of three girls walking around

Easy, great value, good breakfast with a mix of western (toast, tomatoes, eggs, cereal) and thai (pad thai or other fried noodles) with coffee tea and cocoa.

The staff was extremely helpful with good English and recommendations for activities, transportation options. Clean, basic, and great views from the upper rooms!

I really liked the location of this hotel - down a quiet residential street about 15mins from Khao San Road. So you're away from the mayhem but near enough to use the shops/restaurants in you want to. The hotel is basic, but totally fine if you're backpacking. Worth noting that the windows aren't screened so there were a couple of mozzies in my room. Good breakfast with lots of fresh fruit too.

Location wise you are around a 15min walk from Khao San Road - so far enough that you can avoid it but near enough that it's easy to find English speakers in the shops / food stalls etc.
There are a couple of ATMs nearby and it's about 15mins from stop 13 on the river for the boats. Don't get a tourist boat!! Way overpriced - the orange flagged express boats are perfectly good and only charge 15 baht to take you anywhere.
We stayed in a double room with private bathroom.
Staff were friendly, place was clean and quiet. The only negative for me was the lack of curtains - doesn't help your jet lag if you are waking up at 3am thinking it's morning!
The breakfast is excellent - there's a daily hot thai option, eggs, cereal, toast & jams and fruit. The lady who runs the breakfast is also really friendly and nice.
Not a problem for us even though we were on the 5th floor but there is no lift, only one for your bags.
Would definitely stay here again.

This is great hotel in a super location with friendly accommodating staff. Located about a 15min walk from the legendary Ko San Road which is perfect as close enough but not too close! The guy on reception is very helpful and they can arrange extra tours, airport transfers and facilities such as laundry very easily. The room is fine with a balcony that get the late afternoon sun if u are on the front of the hotel (request this), high speed wifi, but be aware no curtains so bring an eyemask. Breakfast was good too with fresh fruit, filter coffee and always an egg option. Can't recommend this hotel enough, very professional service well done!
