          This was our 3rd time visiting Thailand and our 3rd time staying at Korbua House. It is in a great location, close to Khao San road but is very quiet and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and helpful, offering advice on where to visit, directions, and answer any other questions you might have. There is a nice outdoor eating area that overlooks a canal. There is no pool unfortunately, but that is about the only drawback that we can see.

          This was our third time staying here in the last 2 years, and once again we enjoyed it. The location is a 5 minute walk from Khao San road, which means it is quiet and you can get a good sleep. The staff is excellent, even staying up until 3:00am to allow us to check in late after our flights were delayed. The rooms are comfy and will provide a much needed recharge zone before heading to other areas of Thailand. We don't have anything negative to point out. Keep in mind there is no pool at this hotel.

This comfortable was continued 5days until Saturday. Unfortunately on Sunday something which is not beautiful. At that day new staff was working in reception. I think she in momentary working person. i asked room cleaning 2hours before to her. When i came back to hotel I was tired and I wanted rest. Because i had a cold. But room was not cleaned yet. i had to wait long time again. Later on I knew why this happening was happened. Staff order to the cleaning worker clean the checked out rooms first. Moreover only one person was cleaning on Sunday... I hope hotel manager realize what is happening in this hotel and make it correct for new customers. And in this moment I like to say thanks to the staff Artty...

          Value for money, location and quietness.

          We have stayed at Korbua House twice before, its location is perfect if you want to spend time on the Koh San Road and see the main sites of Bangkok. It is right next to the canal which does smell a bit, but you get used to it and most of Bangkok smells and you can't smell it in the rooms. I was very disappointed with the room we were allocated this time, it was very small and didn't have any windows. Previously we have had canal view rooms, which was perfect and a lot better size. I would stay here again but make sure I have a canal facing room.

          Location, comfort, welcoming

          This was the second time I visited Korbua house - first visit last year on a trip round SE Asia and it was just as nice I remembered. Very nice friendly, smiley staff (who were also helpful arranging late checkout and a taxi transfer to airport for me on departure) - the decor of the hotel is really unique and nicely done, and they fill it with nice little touches in the presentation of the rooms and lobby. The lobby is very pleasant and open plan - opening on to a pleasant terrace on a river (filled with plentiful big fat fish splashing) - you can sit out for breakfast or an evening drink in this nice setting. Location is very handy- less than 5 minutes from the backpacker mayhem of Khao San road (and slightly less crazy Ram Butri) but feels totally isolated from that so you can have a bit of tranquility away from there while still having it close by... Also walkable to a lot of the tourist sites - the Palace, gold Buddah, wat Pho, watt Arun...and this bit of the river which is a good spot for grabbing boat trips

          I like the location and the room. The lobby and waiting area for the elevator were always hot. The area has locals and tourists. There were food and drink within steps of the hotel. The massage shop is located next door. I wish Thai people take care their rivers and not throwing waste into the rivers. It would make Bangkok more attractive.

          Well located hotel, walking distance to Khao San rd, Chao Phraya river and many historical buildings, located in old Bangkok next to canal. Also very close by to Adhere 13 Blues Bar which was fantastic! Many eateries close by and great street food, Patongo is at the street end of the alley and serves very reasonably priced lunches. Hotel itself was clean enough but a little tired, wifi excellent and for the price hotel was very good value, staff friendly and helpful, would stay there again as location excellent.

          Great Value”

          Location, clean, quiet

          We only stayed one night as we passed through Bangkok but this hotel was great and met all our needs. Have stayed in other similar priced hotels in Bangkok in the past but this is the best. Will stay again

          We love Korbua House. About 3 weeks before staying this time (for this review) we stayed here and knew we would re-book next time in Bangkok. Look back at that review (Feb. 25 I think). The food is excellent, the rooms are nice, quiet, and comfy. Khao San road is a 5 minute walk away. If you are in Bangkok, and want to be close to Khao San, this is the only place you should stay!

          We absolutely loved this place. When our tuk tuk dropped us off, we weren't sure what to expect, because to get you Korbua you have to walk down an alley about 100 ft or so. Don't judge a book by it's cover because this place is a gem. The fact that it is tucked off the main street is a major plus, it is very quiet. The older lady working the front desk is awesome, she gave us pointers on where to go in bangkok, what to expect, etc. The rooms are good, have a safe, and showers are good. We only stayed one night because we went to visit the islands for a few weeks. We came back to bangkok a few weeks later and stayed at Korbua again. The food at the restaurant is fantastic and very good prices. Everytime I go to Bangkok I will stay at Korbua. It is a 5 minute walk to Khao San rd for shopping and food.
