“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

We stayed 5 nights at the Samsen 5 Lodge - a fantastic experience. Wonderful healthy breakfasts to start the day, our host was really friendly & helpful in assisting us with our queries (& he was the one who prepared the fabulous breakfasts!), our courtyard room was lovely & cool (furnished with some magic pieces), super location close to the 'cultural' attractions. All in all we would highly recommend staying there to any visitor to Bangkok.

Room Tip: The courtyard room (room 2) was cool with a lovely outlook

We have a great time here, small & charming room with a good combination of decoration. Not too far from the Chaopraya river's pier-just a few minutes walk. There are not too many rooms here but in fact we like it because it does makes us feel like our private home. Great view at the river, Friendly atmosphere, and the price is very reasonable. Samsen-Location is great for us to visit the Bangkok landmarks that we expecting to see and spending time with.

This guest house was recommended by a friend and we were very happy. We especially appreciated the 'natural' cooling as opposed to air-conditioning. Very clean and comfortable. Great location. Tasty local cuisine for breakfast.

We came with expectations of this being a very personal experience given prior reviews and fact it was a home. Sadly this was not the case and in fact most of time there was a pervading sense of indifference. We were shown to our room on arrival without a word of welcome or even the briefest of familiarization with how things worked etc. Our room was not cleaned or made up from time of arrival.
I really think owner needs to decide if he is serious about being in hospitality as our experience certainly did not support this contention. We are frequent travellers who have been visiting Thailand over 40 years. Very disappointing.

This was a great experience in a great area of Bangkok. From the moment we stepped out of the hotel we knew we were amongst it from a locals perspective. Very close to the city and JJ markets by Cab. A great walk to see some amazing temples and right in the heart of some incredible food hot spots (the place that specialises in Pad Thai is a must!).
The hotel was clean and very comfy, a great place to rest your tired feet and feel refreshed after a day of exploring and shopping.
