We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Apparantly it is the latest addition to a few hotels with the term Dang Derm, we found that hotel reviews were therefore not very clear as to what to expect. It turned out to be very nice.
Khao San is quite hectic, the noise at night is extreme as several bars seem to make a contest of who can make the most noise. Rooms right onto or even near to the road are to be avoided, unless you plan on being drunk out of your mind or having steaming sex all night long. As neither was likely to happen with two kids along, we were very happy with the family room that was situated at the back with a view on the Royal Palace. Good beds, clean room and ok size room.
The hotel is fairly new, though already showing signs of fatigue probably due to high use. There's a decent size swimming pool on the roof, again with nice views around. Location obviously is excellent, near the major sights and the river.
Breakfast we found poor. And the administration seemed to take forever. Staff was friendly, but they kept on typing on their computers while the queue got longer and longer. Slowest reception ever, they should do something about that.More
