Ugly rooms and it smelled bad the hole time I was there. The rooms get clean everyday but the place still looks bad. The night lady in the lobby was very nice and kind but the day lady was not. Location is not good either, the hole neighborhood smelled like car oil. I wouldn't stay there again, you can get much better options. The only nice thing is the view at night on their rooftop.

Room Tip: Go to another place.

Horrible hotel, NOTHING like the pictures on their website !!!! Rooms are NOT renovated and disgusting. They first tried to put us in a more expensive room pretending they didnt have our reservation. Then all of the sudden a room became available. We went to check it out to find a room uncleaned. Came back down the 3 flights of stairs to let reception know, she replied "Yes I know but this is it" We wasted over an hour going up and down the stairs to look at the rooms that were all horrible, except of course the one at 1,200THB that we could not afford. This is NOT a backpackers hotel. They pretend to be. Reception lady was extremely rude.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere!

I found this hotel in tripadvisor and I wish I never did! We paid to stay two nights and left after one night.
First of all, we heared a lot about roof top view and hoping to have nice time there. BUT nobody talks that ROOF TOP RESTAURANT and hotel are TWO DIFFERENT BUSINESSES! “You have to order something to be in the roof, and how we will make money, if everybody sits here free!” the Thai man at the restaurant ( I believe restaurant owner) said. The restaurant has a nice view but not very cheap and roof is leaking by molds when you sit in nice looking seats!
Secondly, there is no elevator until 3rd floor, so we had to carry our luggage to elevator. And room was horrific! In the website, it says for our room “fully-renovated” it is a big lie! The picture what website says not true. They might have renovated the bed only, but it was very uncomfortable. The walls were dirty, spidery, TV don’t show any channels, no wifi in the rooms, constructions noises in the building.. Moreover, it is very difficult to find, you have to walk in narrow nasty alleys.

Not to far walk from the train station and good location to catch the river ferries to tourist spots up the river.
While we were there they were renovating so offered a cheaper rate. during the day time there was noise from the builders but during the night it was quiet. Room was basic but had everything you would need. We stayed just below the restaurant so managed to get wifi in the room but other guest did not get in their rooms. Hot shower and nice spacious rooms. Amazing view from the roof top restaurant.

Room Tip: if you like to keep cool best go for an AC room as the ceiling fan did not cool us down that much

This GH is far beyond my expectation and we stayed another day after the 1st night. The GH is around 15min walk from the train station, just next to China town. Be prepared to get lost if you are going there for the first time coz the place hides in a small lane. The room is basic and clean and the balcony offers a nice placce to chat and rest. We both love the roof from which you can view a different Bangkok over the river. Breakfast is also nice and roof restaurant is a good choice if you want to find somewheere quiet and romantic.
