Our stay here was fine, but it was not a very good value. We booked the super deluxe room because it was the only one available at the guesthouse for the five nights we were in Bangkok. The room was small and the furniture felt squeezed, and the bathroom was fine but not great. On the plus side, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was nice, and the location was decent. The worst part, however, were the swarms of mosquitos outside our door; they frequently made it inside our room, which led to some unpleasant nights. We think that this might have been unique to our room – we were warned by the front desk to enter and exit the room quickly – but it definitely wasn’t great. We’ve stayed in a range of hotels in Thailand, and while this one was fine, it wasn’t a very good value, at least for the super deluxe.

Everyone working at this guesthouse was so friendly and helpful, and spoke English very well. They even made a special effort to remember our names and our breakfast preference. The rooms were a bit small, but had everything you could need, including a TV with loads of English channels and a big comfortable bed. The entire guesthouse was immaculately clean and our room was cleaned every day. Location is very quiet but within walking distance to major tourist sites and Khao San road, basically the perfect base for exploring Bangkok.

A great place to stay in Bangkok. Walking distance to the pier and to many downtown tourist attraction. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. We will stay there again on our next trip to Bangkok.

We stayed for three nights at this small guesthouse last January.
What we liked:
- Very helpful and friendly staff
- Close to Khao San Rd but not right on it
What we didn´t like:
- Rooms too small for the price
- Hot and not very well ventilated rooms
- One day they didn't make the beds and the room was poorly cleaned even though we left early
- Internet wi-fi signal is poor in the room so you have to go to common areas to get internet

Room Tip: If you decide to stay here and need good internet signal and space ask for a different room from Ban...

We were pleasantly suprised when we arrived after booking a fan room with shared bathroom. The room was cool enough and had a decent wifi connection. For a little extra we moved to an air con room with TV and again this was clean and comfortable. When it came to extending our stay there was only a superior room left which was way out of our price range. When the owner realised there would be little chance of renting it to anyone else she reduced the rate and we were thankful as it would not have been worth the original price she was asking, it was extortionate for a guesthouse room. Breakfast is small but ok with quick service. Like the review before we also were caught out with high charge for the use of the telephone despite only being on it for a couple of minutes. We also wanted to use a computer to upload some of our pictures but it would not work and the internet was really slow yet we still had to pay. The staff were friendly enough when we first arrived, however on some days throughout our stay they were less friendly than others which we found really strange and caused a slight atmosphere. I would probably stay here again as the rooms are clean and the location is good but just watch out for those added extras and the odd atmosphere!
