We stayed at the Ibrik for a couple of nights and have to say the location was a brilliant experience, especially as we were staying in the river room, surely nothing in Bangkok comes closer, literally, in terms of the view! The area itself was also great, right next to a ferry pier so no problem getting around and the restaurants next door, Studio 9 and the Supatra were also great for the river view experience and good food.
The back streets around the Ibrik remined me a bit of Khao San Road days from many moons ago. However, I've obviously become more fussy in my old age as the bed was rock hard and the pillows like boulders, in fact I went out to buy a pillow the next day! Otherwise the room itself was clean and had the essentials (although the air con unit was probably on its last legs) but it would have been a bit cramped for anything more than a couple of days as there wasn't much space for storage or unpacking.
Breakfast is pre-ordered but on the first morning was stone cold, even though we weren't late. The guy on duty that day didn't speak more than a few words of English so we didn't bother saying anything. We showed up 10 minutes early the next morning, different guy on duty anyway so it was fine. In that regard, if you have anything more than the basics to ask, you need to leave a message for the manager who I assume must come in every day.
Overall, I really enjoyed the experience of staying there, but if you're a soft pillow princess, then bring your own!
