From the fantastic breakfasts to the comfy bed, and the helpful staff our stay could not have been more relaxing. Close to everything yet far removed from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets outside. If you stay anywhere in Bangkok it should be at the Inn.

Stayed there recently for a couple of nights. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is amazing. The room was comfortable and clean with personalized decor. You can borrow a bicycle for free which is a great way to get around downtown Bangkok. More expensive than other options, but definitely worth it.

Rooms really quiet away from the traffic although you can hear people in the next rooms and the floor boards creak! We did the night bike ride which was great! I can't be bothered to add another 50 characters, when did TripAdvisor introduce this? It's a great hotel, enough said!

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
