“good for the cost”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

This is a decent hotel with working bath facilities that are at or above most thai standard for the price. Small balconies, quiet neighborhood, great location. This is definately worth it for the price.

The hotel is located near Kao San Road, just over the River so it's a lot more quit. The neighborhood is nice, many little shops and restaurants around. A room on the front side of the hotel gives a great view!

The staff was very nice and helpfull. Breakfast is simple but with fresh fruits. It was a very nice play to stay in Bangkok!

I stayed here two years ago and loved it so much I recommend it to any friends traveling to the area.
My boyfriend and I had a private room. It was clean, came with a balcony and fridge, the breakfast selection is fantastic, and the location is great! One night we were coming home late and got invited to join some Thai neighbours (a family) at their street side table to enjoy some snacks and beers. I think only one of the people spoke a small amount of English, but it was such a great experience to bond and try and communicate. You'd never experience that staying at a cliche hotel in a touristy part of town.

We had a perfect stay here, for a budget hotel it was everything you need. Good location, lovely breakfast, clean rooms and bathrooms, friendly helpful staff, complimentary bottles of water, and all for a reasonable price. A previous review mentions a 'chicken farm', which apparently keeps everyone awake from 4.00. Yes, there is a rooster who lives nearby, but from what we could tell it's only the one, and whilst we heard him from time to time, i wouldn't say he's a particularly early riser. Neither did we feel that the hotel is located in an 'unsafe' area, also mentioned in an earlier review. it's pretty quiet and residential and at no point did i feel threatened or unsafe. We will definitely come back to stay here, when we're back in Bangkok.

The location is great. Near Khao San Rd. - like 15 mins walk, and also Grand Palace etc. Staff are very friendly and helpful. If you want, the room can be cleaned every day. If not, u still get 2 bottles of water. Price for the room (with AC) is great - breakfast included (and its really very tasty). I can really recommend this hotel.

We really enjoyed the 6 nights we stayed here. The rooms are modern and cosy, with a closet, tv, a/c, fridge, table with mirror, balcony and a neat and clean bathroom. The rooms are cleaned every day and if you ask them not to clean your room they still give you two bottles of drinking water (they do not enter your room but put the bottles in a bag and hang it at your doorknob). The included breakfast buffet is good and has something for everyone. The location is about 10 minutes walking from Khao San road, and yet it's nice and quiet at night. The staff is very friendly and we would recommand this hotel if you want a good hotel in central BKK for a very reasonable price!

There is a chicken farm near-by. if you don't mind waking up at 4 am then it might not be so bad. But don't expect to sleep after 4 am. It is also in a very unsafe area. There were people sleeping in the streets right outside of the hotel. I live in Northern Thailand, so I am used to some of this stuff, but it's really bad in this particular area. It's in walking distance (2km) to Wat pra kaew and some other things were close-by, so that is why I gave it 2 stars. They had very very basic ammenities, but I don't mind bringing my own shampoo, etc.... It's just that you wont get any sleep after 4 am and you might get robbed if you walk outside the hotel at night.

Room Tip: Try booking just 1 night first to see how well you can sleep with roosters outside your window, you...
