I stayed at Fortville when I arrived in Bangkok for 2 nights and at the end of my Thailand trip for another 2 nights. A friend that lived in Thailand recommended this place to me and I will forever be grateful!
It is affordable and a great deal for what you get. The staff is incredibly, friendly and more than helpful. The coffee shop, RPO, is great and I've had the best coffee here. The rooms are clean, tastefully decorated. The bathrooms are also great with western toilets and my showers have always been warm! The rooms also have satiellite TV with BBC news, German, French, Thai and Chinese channels.
One of the best features is the location of Fortville. It's about 5 blocks to Khao San road, but you would never know it. It's also only 2 or 3 blocks from the Chao Prae river. You can take a river taxi tour down the river and get off at Wat Po and The Grand Palace. Best place to stay if you want to wander around and come back to your room and leave and wander again!More
