Stayed here for a couple of nights. Great central location with backpacker district 3 blocks away and close to markets. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Rooftop pool and bar are fun too and recommended after a hot day of sightseeing. Recommended A++++

I spent 3 days on January 7 to January 10, 2014 and 2 more nights on February 10 and 11, 2014. In reading the other reviews I am wondering if we were at the same hotel. I was on the fourth floor, in a deluxe room with breakfast. The room was very large, clean, air con good, fridge, free bottle of water, tea and coffee free, hair dryer, bathrobes, wifi,tv, etc.. I know that the hotel is refreshing and renovating at some floors but on the fourth the rooms were very nice and very clean. The mattress was very comfortable also. The breakfast was excellent and with a variety of food. That was the best breakfast buffet I ate in my 38 days in Thailand. The staff at the reception should smile a little more and at the front door the staff does not speak very much english and cannot understand you. There is an agency just at the door and many good restaurants all around, the hotel gives also massage at the exterior of the hotel with very good price. Very good location, closed to Khao Sand Road, ferry and it is very quiet at night and safe. If I returned to this hotel on my way back home it is because I really appreciated my stay there. New World has also a sister calls Nouvo hotel just cross the corridor which is new but the rooms are very expensive. You can usee the pool of Nouvo hotel for $10 a day.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor are very nice (deluxe with breakfast)

Stayed here for three nights from New Year, 2014. Hotel was booked as part of a package with Trailfinders and described as a superior room. I know that at times in Asia standards can be less than western, though this was grim. Very old style hotel, no bar, little in the way of reception area and the outside stank.

We booked a taxi from from the international airport directly with the hotel, though they just didn't bother turning up!!


Shower was poor, just no pressure. Whilst the room was clean on arrival, it was poorly lit and had a tired feeling. There was a pair of flip flops just abandoned in the bathroom... Air conditioning did work, though spilled over the floor.

Positives
On a positive note there was a room safe.
If you stay here, check out the Taxi stand, bottom of the hotel and turn left. We got exceptional value by booking the driver for all day, 100THB. Great for a taxi to the airport also.
Also good location for Khao San Road...

Breakfast wasn't great and very strict on closing times.

Staff had poor English and didn't seem that fussed on engaging with us.

A definite no, no. Expected a lot more from the hotel description if honest. Though didn't stop us having fun after all - it was Bangkok!

Room Tip: Luck. I am sure they are all the same, we had two and they were equal..

Stayed one nite at this hotel in January 2014. The hotel room was filthy looking with dirty hand prints on the walls, especially behind the bed, and stains on the bed sheets. The shower would only get luke warm water if it was turned to a drizzle... Anything more and it was ice cold. Very little english by the front desk staff. We had stayed in a similarily priced hotel the previous nite on sukhumvit road which was exponentially nicer. The location of the hotel is good, but this is not a 3 star hotel and much better hotels can be obtained for the price.

Um, it looks nothing like the photos. The bathroom was tiny and looked like it belonged in a jail. There was not even a shower curtain, just open air! False advertising.. it did not have a pool or rooftop garden - this is the sister hotel that is attached to it, which faces the main street. We did not even have hot running water, and the AC kept on dripping. Which is not only annoying but downright dangerous. There was a cockroach in our room when we walked in. Oh, and there seems to be a putrid smell surrounding the outside of the hotel in some parts - could be the sewerage? the only good part of it is that it's walking distance to the hustle and bustle of khao san road. give this place a miss.

This place is an absolute dump. There is no excuse for filth. They have cleaners but they are clearly incompetent or don't even clean. The doors in the room were rotten, lights hardly worked, room smelt. I wouldn't put my dog in there to be honest. Please go elsewhere!
