It's an inexpensive, basic place to sleep and shower
Amarin Inn worked for my purposes: it's a cheap place to sleep. You should know that it is located in a very narrow back alley - the kind where you can almost reach both walls with your fingertips. Some people may find this unpleasant, and it does make Amarin hard to find.
Currently the only public transit options available are taxis (slow), buses (very slow), and ferries (limited destinations on the Chao Phraya River but otherwise a great way to get around). I had almost daily business around the Sukhumvit area, which made the location inconvenient.
The wi-fi in my room worked most of the time, but occasionally it would act up. There's no lounge, although there is a chair and a computer for Internet access. The little old TV had ESP and Discovery, plus a bunch of Thai channels. The air conditioning worked fine, which I appreciated a lot. My bathroom was basic - there's no shower stall, so you shower in the bathroom itself - but it worked. It would have been nice if the room had been a little larger, but at the price I paid I can't complain.
Bottom line: I had my fill of the Kho San Road area and will probably stay elsewhere next time, but I wouldn't mind it if I needed to stay here again.More
