We stayed here twice on our tour of Asia and we were made to feel like part of a family throughout. We first stayed 28/11-2/12 in room 305. It was basic-we booked the standard room- but it had a big tv and a comfortable bed. The tap wasn't really attached very well but it made us laugh. Then we stayed...

We have been staying at Korbua for one week every year for 4 years because it has everything we need. We take a canal view room as we like watching the monitor lizards cruising up & down, the people opposite preparing the fish for sale and the quietness. The staff are always welcoming and the breakfast is excellent - cooked...

A good located hotel with ok rooms and nice and efficient staff. They allowed us to ckeck-in very early, which adds to the rating. Nice location for a stroll through Samsen and also the Arthit pier is not far.

We had a decent stay recently at the Korbua House. It was very difficult for our taxi driver to find the place, as it's located down an alleyway. It does smell a bit since the property is right on the canal; but it really wasn't that bad and definitely not as bad as some people have described it. The rooms...

Great location, not too close but not too far from Khao San and Rambuttri. As a couple we liked being a bit removed from that area, and this hotel is along a nice canal in a quieter alley. The room was pretty clean, although the drain in the bathroom smelled a bit - nothing too bad though. Staff was nice...

The Korbua House is small, well kept with friendly service...located along a canal in old Bangkok. Good value for the price. The rice bowl breakfast is delicious and will hold you for a long time. The outdoor patio is perfect for a tea or drinks after a long day of sightseeing.

Cheap hotel right by Khoasan Road & Rambuttri. As it is cheap don't expect it to be luxurious, but the amenities are great and it is within walking distance of everything. As it is right beside a river/canal there can be a bot of a smell outside at times (but Bangkok can have a smell to it at times anyway)....

Korbua House is a simple, clean and quiet small hostel. Approximately 6 blocks from the main action of Kao San area, but far enough not to get bother at night by the noise. Rooms are small but clean. The employees are wonderful and friendly... always willing to help out or resolve any issues. Breakfast was included in my package and...

Located on the canal and extremely close to Koh San Road this was perfect for us. there was a restaurant we wanted to try, no6 in Bangkok on TP and it did not let us down and neither did Korbua House, friendly welcome and efficient check in and a very clean room over looking the canal. Bathroom was newly decorated...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
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.
