Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Very very loud at night until early hours of the morning. Good location as there are many restaurants, spas and shopping stalls right out the front. The gym is small but good and the pool is really nice with lots of sun beds. The staff are nice. The bed is so so comfy too! Best we have had in Thailand....

A friend and I stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of our Thailand trip. The location was great and the pool was delightful to come back to at the end of a long day. For the price, we were happy with the hotel. The room was clean, staff were friendly, and we always felt safe. We didn't...

This hotel does the job for a better experience than a hostel, but not much more in price. Comfortable beds, cool AC and noise level was at a minimum. Nice room with all amenities and helpful staff. I highly recommend!

Stayed here for 2 nights with a friend and we had a nice twin room with a comfy bed and air conditioning. The location is pretty good in that it's on Khaosan Road but towards the end so you can escape the noise that's happening in the middle of the street but you're still really close to it all. The...

This hotel is on Khaosan Rd so expect some noise until the early hours, there is a nightclub below but not as bad as I was expecting.

Room was rly nice. Very good bead everything was working and looked nice. staff was rly nice and polite. It's more of a party hotel. So if that is your goal .. go for it. If you are more of a doing tourist stuff and seeing the city type .. maybe go somewhere else.

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.
