Banglumpoo place Guesthouse

Reviewed 7 March 2014

The reason for the above is building B is right next to a Mosque and at 5 a.m. every morning you will be awakened by the Al-Iman with his loud speaker turned up to maximum - You Have been Warned.
However, Bldg A is very nice. Bldg B blocks the loudspeaker. The rooms are very spacious and light each with it's own balcony. They are also very well appointed with large bathrooms. The hotel is on the outskirts of the tourist area so it is also peaceful and quiet. I would give this hotel (Bldg A) another star but they do not take credit cards.

Room Tip: Rooms in bldg A are much quieter than bldg B

The rooms are more or less clean and pretty large but also pretty free of any cosy and comfortable atmosphere. This would be acceptable but what is definitively not acceptable is, that the receptionists in the lobby are completely free of any service attitude. Any request that requires some effort more than just saying "yes" and "no" is not served. Unfortunately also here, a general trend in the "land of smile" takes place, where service providers as hotel receptionists, waiters, taxi and tuktuk drivers and others believe that getting the money from tourists does not require a minimum amount of friendlyness, effort and decency.
So I do not recommend this hotel if you want to be treated friendly (beeing friendly yourself), but I would advise to try other guesthouses and hotels like the Siam II that know what the meaning of the word "guest" is (this was true last year e.g. at the Siam II) .

When you've not pre-booked a place to stay and are tired of trudging around looking for somewhere you tend to be more relieved just to get a roof over your head so if I'd had more time, I'd have gone for somewhere else.

There was one male member of staff who was friendly and helpful; the rest were disinterested and the place is merely out to make money out of your most simple request. Customer service is poor because they probably think that people won't be returning anyway so while you're there, they try to squeeze as much from you as they can.

The room was soul-less although it did have a balcony but nothing to dry clothes on. Furniture in the room was old and not what you'd want to actually make use of. The toilet actually required you to place your hand in the cistern to make it flush and the power sockets were hanging off the wall, exposing the wiring.

In all, if there's two of you to share and you're going to be out most of the time, this place is adequate enough if you can live with its issues. If not, find somewhere else, as there's plenty of other options in the neighborhood.

Room Tip: Don't turn up late and be given the dregs of what they have left.

We stayed in the Banglumpoo Place Guest House as the area was recommended as close to Khao San, but in a quiet area. This is true as I have rarely stayed somewhere that is so quiet (especially with a loud party area nearby).

The room we had was basic, clean but a bit soulless. There was no hot water and the bed was about as hard as a park bench to sleep on. The furnishings were worn and reminded me of 1st year halls of residence at university in the 70s. If you can take the aches and pains caused by the bed, then this place is convenient and cheap.

I should review this hotel on Trip Advisor before I made a booking.
I booked the room through Agoda.com and upon arrival the room and hotel area was unacceptable…Dirty and was not safety at all.

We immediately cancelled it the staff said “other guest can stay, and did not see any problem for other guest. As the rule of booking you will not get any refund. You can do what ever you want as this is the rule.” Ohh!!!! I hope you will get success on your business so far.

I do not expect for this hotel to improve any thing but dear all traveler please consider before you book sometime picture on the website is FAKE…..

Found the accommodation to be very reasonably priced, much higher quality that any of the hostels etc. on or near Khao San Rd and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay there again if I wanted to be near but not on top of all the action!

We stayed here for 5 nights. The staff is very friendly and the room is new and big.
Recommend for backpackers. The location is on the main road near the bus stop. It is very convenient to go Grand Palace, Wat Po, JJ market...
Bus to airport is 150 Bath/person.
