Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

I've traveled many countries and have stayed in lots of hotels/hostels and this is one of the very best. It's not among the cheapest in the Khao San road area but it is probably the best value.

The room and the whole property were spotless. It is a very short walk from Khao San and it's loud all night music and crowds.

It can be a little bit of a trick to find but the owner sent me Google maps and pictures. He is a very nice man who speaks good English. We spent quite a bit of time talking in their common area and drinking the free coffee and tea. He helped me find a Boots pharmacy and set me up with a great price on a mini bus to DM airport.

stay and am looking forward to it.

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 5 days and it was the best sleep we've had on our trip round south east Asia over the last 7 weeks. Good laundry facilities, computers downstairs, decent wifi throughout the building and the air conditioning is great to. The rooms are a little bit on the small side and the shower although it is warm it was unpredictable as it jumped from hot to cold and the pressure changed all by itself quite often which was very annoying. However there was fresh towels every morning , and the room was cleaned whenever we weren't in it, the staff are really friendly and speak pretty ok English. I'd definitely recommend this place to backpackers or young couples. It's also very close to ko San road and the tourist spots and the river are only about ten minutes away.

In chaotic, noisy and badsmelling bangkok this is an oasis of rest in the hart of the old center. Although low budget, towels, bathproducts, airco and hot shower are offered, besides kitchen use,coffee in the morning, a lovely patio and infinite friendlyness of staff.

Fantastic location for visiting all the attractions near the river - 5 mins walk from Phra Arthit pier where you can get the express boat for 15 baht to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho etc. 10 mins walk from Khao San but MUCH less touristy. Very quiet inside despite being near busy roads, as it's down an alley behind other buildings. Room was not large but it was big enough, with shelves & a place to hang clothes, and it was spotless. Triple rooms looked much bigger. Room was cleaned every day with fresh towels & bedding. The bed was the most comfortable we've had in Thailand! The place has a friendly, hostel vibe with communal lounge with tv & computers downstairs. There's a washing machine & dryer for guests to use, which was a lot cheaper than getting laundry done elsewhere. Staff were all friendly & helpful. Really can't fault it, especially at 800 baht a night through booking.com.

We were looking for a place to sleep the same night and decided to check this hotel that is located in a small alley.
The owner was very friendly and the rooms were excellent value considering the price we paid. As this hotel only opened its doors in April 2013, the rooms look brand new and are equipped with comfy beds.
Location is good to explore the main sights in the old city or to catch the riverboat to get to the BTS station and other areas.
The friendly owner was awake when we had to catch an early morning taxi to the airport to make sure the pick up was ok.
