“a perfect hotel in a perfect location.”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

We were guests at the hotel for 3 nights.
The hotel is situated in an excellent location, on the banks of the river , close to Khao San Rd. and close to many tourist attractions and restaurants.
The room itself was lovely and decorated to perfection.
We loved the great view to the river from our room.
Also the cleanliness and upkeep of the room were very impressive.
We received the highest level of service from the entire staff of the hotel.
We can especially commend the front office team due to the personal and amicable relations with us, their willingness to help and their knowledge and experience of all things that are important to tourists.
We must say that we received full value for our money spent
We will be happy to return to this hotel in our next visit to Thailand

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was lovely. It is a very new hotel and has been done to a very high standard. Our room was beautiful and very spacious with a lovely balcony that has fantastic views of the river. The staff were very attentive and looked after us very well. There was a small problem with the power in our room and they sorted it straight away and even gave us cookies and letter as an apology! very reasonable for standard of accommodation and great location for khao San road. didn't use pool but it looked gorgeous. River taxi outside hotel was a great way to get round. Would definitely return,

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking river with a balcony

Reviewed 26 September 2012

Basically, this place is fantastic. It opened just over a week ago so everything is nice and new. Beyond this everything is of very good quality. Now don't get me wrong, this is not the cheapest in the area. Across the road the New Siam II has a perfectly adequate guest house at about a quater of the price, but you get what you pay for and this is first class all the way.

The internet was a good speed and consistant, the room had a nice balcony with river views (albeit the river has seen better days but hardly the hotels fault) and all the bedding, towels and accessories are exactly what you would expect from a 4 star hotel.

The best thing about this place however is the staff. They are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and the really will do anything for you. The only concerns I have is that too many people will read this review and it will be booked out or too expensive when I return, which I expect will be often.

Well done guys, great hotel, great job.

Room Tip: River view if you want it, other may face the street, so I am not sure how noisy they get.
