                Very nice hotel, quiet and clean and a great rooftop pool”

                This place has a really nice pool on the roof that is a perfect place to relax. The Bansabai staff are really a great bunch of people and work very hard at keeping this place beautiful. There is a wonderful evening market walking distance up the street where you can get great salads and fried chicken and other Thai food. It is definitely pretty far from downtown Bangkok but I wasn't interested in going there. This was more of a quick visa run that turned into a nice relaxing vacation! Thanks again Bansabai ;)

                Enjoyed our stay here before flying to another country, it is about 30-40 mins away from Dong Mueng airport. Nice pool and a lovely place to watch the sunset. The room was nice, hot shower, comfortable bed. Very far from khao san road though so it is more for a stop off if you’re using the airport. 711 is just down the road as well. I would recommend staying here.

                The rooms are clean and comfortable and as it's out of town it's much quieter. But most of all the staff are so friendly and helpful. There is a little 24 hour shop next door which is handy if you arrive late. Would highly recommend The Bansabai.

                We have being staying at Bansabai for nearly twenty years as it is near my wife's family. So +/- points + Good Value +Good Size rooms for the superior range with balcony +Roof Top Pool, good for a small swim and quick dip +Nice staff, who many speak English +Clean and Tidy - Noisy Air Con - Hotel manual is so far out of date stating services they no longer supply, including laundry instructions, coffee shop, times of breakfast and details of the surrounding area. Needs an update urgently. - Wifi did not work for a whole week whilst we were there, only worked on the ground and mezzanine floor. - Location might not be brillent for the inexperienced travel or one that is less adventurous.

                I have stayed here before and I enjoyed my stay. This time I must have booked a different room type which was a bit cramped. My big disappointment came when I ventured to roof top pool. It was empty. I was so looking forward to relaxing with my book poolside. Later I was informed the pool was broken but that didn’t help. The breakfast was acceptable.

                This place has very nice rooftop swimming pool and a small garden. Our room was clean and we enjoyed our stay there. It's very far from the city center though. We always took a taxi first to the nearest MRT Station and continued from there via MRT and/or BTS. The trip took almost an hour every time so if you're busy I would go somewhere else, but if you like it more calm and quiet this is your place.

                I always come back here!”

                The pool, rooftop view of the skyline, clean quiet room.

                This will sound like a broken record, but I always stay here and have been doing so for eight years. I can't impress upon you enough that this hotel is far away from the centre. It's still easy to get into the centre but you have to time your trip. Rush hour begins at 4pm and lasts until 7pm (some nights until 8pm). You can use a mix of public transport to get to the subway. Staying in Lad Phrao is all about adventure. There are lots of night markets for cheap eats and lots of local restaurants. You'll have to learn some Thai, as much as possible! It's a fun area and the people are very nice and very helpful. There, you've been warned.

                A great place to stay!”

                The pool, the rooftop garden and he clean rooms.

                I've been staying here every year for eight years. Most years I stay multiple times. The staff are very helpful and it's a nice place to chill out. It is not near the main tourist attractions - this can be a problem for some people. If you like the idea of being immersed in Bangkok culture, then you'll like it out here. Do yourself a favour and learn/memorize Thai language as you will need to speak Thai out here. The staff are really helpful in giving you pointers on how to order food. There is some English in surrounding restaurants, but it's very limited. You've been warned!

                Great Rooms and well presented.”

                Clean and very large rooms - especially considering the price.

                Well presented hotel, with very large rooms and well kept. Also has a rooftop pool, which I unfortunately didn't get to, but looked good nonetheless. Downsides are the location (approx. 15-20 mins by taxi to areas to go in Bangkok), though some may consider this an advantage. The staff also don't have the best English. Overall a good stay, the quality of the room made up for any shortfalls.

                A gem”

                Pool on the roof, untouristed area.

                we've stayed here for 8 years and have always enjoyed our time. the staff have been great and really try to help the foreigners out. the rooftop is beginning to show its age but overall the place is well maintained. be warned: this place is two hours from kao san road. if you want that backpacker ghetto scene, then this area is not for you.

                Quirky, friendly place”

                Lovely rooftop pool area, hydroponic nursery and lots of nooks and crannies

                This is a very nice, quirky place to stay with lots of little public areas to sit and relax. The hydroponic garden is a real novelty. On the downside, the location is far, far, far from anywhere although a shuttle service is offered. The climbing wall seems to have no top rope setup and is open directly down to the street, inviting disaster!!

                amazing pool and relaxed area”

                The pool, cheap food around

                we chose the hotel because of the roof pool, and it was no disappointment, because its really nice and relaxing, eventhough its quite small. the room was big and nice with balcony, which was good to dry clothes.
