“great reasonable hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

We loved this hotel. It was reasonably priced. Good location (although tucked away so definitely make sure you have a basic map / directions for your taxi driver). Has a/c. Really filling buffet breakfast which is different each day - eat your fill and you won't need to eat until tea time. We had a triple room and it was spacious, clean and had a little balcony - good for drying clothes. Lots of stairs and no lift but there is a baggage lift which was helpful. Free water every day. Reception staff really helpful for booking trips and taxis, etc. They even let us check in early which was very welcome. some nice eateries nearby and walking distance close to bustling bangkok - Grand Palace etc. Really recommend this basic, budget hotel.

Quiet place during night , basic room & airco as expected on rate. But very clean and cleaned (incl new towls) every day.
Breakfast buffet basic but for sure okay, good fresh coffee (not nescafe) and very friendly staff. Location excellent close to lively Khaosan and main attractions more or less on walking distance, also in walking distance of express boats (easy to get more convienent to Grand palace).
The only VERY VERY negative thing that I encountered was the ladyboy receptionist, WHO RIPPED us OFF after a long day trip, we like to book a bus ticked to Sukothai day after(friendly day receptionist explained in morning simply to go to north bus staitionand book right there without extra charge of 150 b) to ensure I double checked and he/she said was not so easily to fix etc etc Anyhow we paid 450 B Commission (on a fare of ~700) !!!!!!! Be aware I gave a low rate on service for this!!

We booked a "deluxe" room for two nights because of the positive reviews we had read. There is nothing deluxe about this place. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by the most rude man (lady boy) who seemed quite annoyed we were interrupting his television show. It was always pleasant when we returned to the hotel to be greeted by such a soar face. I don't think he realised that we had paid for the pleasure of staying with them. The woman on reception in the morning however was nice, but we only ran into her once. The room was clean but like an old 70's hospital. I understand it is a cheap hotel but you can certainly get way more for your money close by. I had enjoyed a massage down the road which left my back nice and knot free and then had to sleep in the most uncomfortable bed I have ever been in. Needless to say my back was terrible in the morning. The people that have raved about how great this place is have let the consumers down I feel, it isn't great and really should be avoided.

I was surprised at the good comments for this place! Granted the room was clean but the bed was aweful, the room generally in disrepair, weird stains on the sheets and it was down a dingy old ally. The one guy of reception was rude and unhelpful. My suggestion is if you HAVE to book this for one night and find something else. We walked down the road and found a really nice place called the Diamond Place for the same money

Stayed here for three nights in whole inbetween trips to ko samet and Chiang mai. For 900 baht a night we got a small but adequate double room with AC. We booked the room due to all the positive reviews and we weren't disapointed.

The rooms are clean and there is wifi throughout all the hotel. We stayed on the 3rd, 4th and 5th floors at both the front and the back of the hotel. The view of the street was much 'nicer' than the view of a wall we had on the 3rd floor. I say nice in its lightest term, the street isn't pretty and the hotel is located on a dirty back alley.

To say location is excellent is a bit of an exaggeration. It is about a 20 minute walk to khao San road, which is great if you want to be near the excitement but not right in it. However we like the idea of being right on the main strip, just because we don't sleep early anyway so the noise isn't a problem for us. We are moving to 'sleep well inn' tonight, which is round about the same price, but on the road next to khao San (about 2 minutes away). So a review for there will follow!

The breakfast at roof view is great. There is a good variety of hot and cold food, and coffee and tea are available for free all day. Overall, I would recommend this place for anyone needing a quiet place to stay for a night or two in Bangkok. If you are looking to be right in the mist of things, I would recommend trying somewhere like 'sleep well inn' which is a lot more central. I dont really have a bad thing to say about the hotel and would recommend it to a friend.
