The location of this hotel is right in the heart of the very touristy Khaosan Road. At first glance this hotel was alright. I stayed there the first night I arrived in Bangkok, and returned to it after I had visited a region in the north. Upon my return to the Dang Derm hotel, I learned that I had roommates I wasn't informed about.
There was a decent sized roach supine on the floor. I took the cup they provided for the bottled water, and placed it over the roach. When room service came while I was out, the cup was back near the bottle and the roach was still on the floor. I called the front desk once. Then called again. And in a half hour, one of the housekeeping staff came to sweep it away.
I went to change my room and they switched me to the one across the hall. Upon first inspection, everything was fine. Later, as I was in the bathroom, a small roach scurried along the floor and hid in the dark space near the large overturned urn. A few curses later, I saw that I had another roach run from the balcony sliding door to under the fridge. I called the front desk. No one came. Went downstairs, and had to explain six different ways that I had roaches in my room. After words failed, I used pantomime to get my point across. They sent a woman up to spray the premises.
Later in the evening, a roach scurried from under the fridge and made it a considerable distance before it met the business end of my flip flop. I use the cup again to hold the thing captive. After another scan of the room, I carefully went to sleep.
Upon waking up in the morning, I went to brush my teeth. Near the sink, I noticed a tiny brown oval. After a close look, I realized it was a baby roach. Thoroughly dismayed I withdrew from the hotel and went to stay at the Royal.
