      Exceptional”

      Samsen Sam Place is a wonderful little hostel located in a quiet unassuming alley street off of the main road (Samsen Rd). It is located in an old wooden Thai home. This makes the location quite appealing with beautiful wooden floors and quaint touches throughout. My room was one of the two suites which afforded me with a large double bed, a workspace table, two seating chairs, a small beauty station, and a large bathroom. The bathroom had a little wardrobe where I was able to put my luggage and keep my clothes accessible as I stayed for 7 nights. The shower was quite large and the water pressure and availability of hot water just what you’d want. While the bathroom amenities were basic again, it was all that was needed. There are plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from as well as easy access to money exchange locations and atm’s. It is also very easy to call a Grab to come and take you wherever you want to go.

      Fantastic location for sightseeing, river and more”

      Location, friendly service, value for money, quiet oasis.

      I originally booked just 2 nights at this place as this was my first stay in BKK and I wasn't sure about location - it looked from the map as if it were far from a metro/BTS. I thought this might be a problem. Not at all. In fact, I extended my stay here to the total of 5 nights because as it turned out the location is absolutely perfect - within walking distance to the key tourist attractions like the Grand Palace (20-30 min stroll), Wat Pho i.e. the Reclining Buddha Temple (2nd largest in Thailand), the Temple of the Dawn (5 minutes to the river pier no. 14 for the boat ride), and the Vimanmek Mansion (15 minutes north - free ticket with the Grand Palace ticket). And of course - the Khaosan Road - is literally 10 min walk away. Getting right into the busy (noisy) centre of BKK was not a problem either (although I must say I was glad to return to my riverside location) a fast taxi was only 80Baht, if you have no luggage a tuk tuk might be fun as well. The rooms and common areas are exquisitely clean and well maintained. My room was a Delux with private bathroom, which had a powerful western-style shower and toilet, big mirror and a full array of complimentary toiletries (incl. comb, toothbrush & paste, plus the usual shampoo & soap). The bed was super soft but comfortable (none of that sinking feeling...), the TV with satellite channels (incl. BBC/CNN/HBO etc), air-conditioning, a fridge and free WiFi - all made for a very comfortable stay. The breakfast menu had 4 sets - and I loved the chicken&rice soup set in particular (toast / eggs also available). All in all - highly recommended, if/when I return to BKK I will definitely be staying at the Sam Sen Sam Place again! Thanks again to the SSS Place Team for your wonderful hospitality!

      Samsen Sam Place is like a little oasis in Bangkok, which can be pretty hectic. Location is great, since it is close to Khao San Road and Pier 13 to take a boat that will take you to the main attractions. The room was very spacious and clean, which we highly appreciate. Staff was very friendly and they even arranged a grab taxi to take us to the airport.

      We had a great stay at Samsen sam Place a boutique guesthouse in a great location of town within a short stroll of public transportation, the bustling night life of Khoa San Road, and waterfront dining - also close by are historical landmarks and temples. There's a cafe located on the property which we didn't have the opportunity to try because of our short stay. However we would stay here again if we're in the area, recommended!

      the Samsen Sam Place is a bit off the beaten track. You will need to take the boat taxi to get there (connecting from the BTS). But it is worth it. You have clean rooms with mattresses that don't make you wonder who slept on them last (as opposed to the Sukhumvit area). Lots to do at night. Feels like a bed and breakfast. Shucks, the secret is out!

      Super-clean rooms, great location, fantastic people
      Shower a little weak

      For the price, it's hard to imagine how one could do better than Samsen Sam. The rooms were squeaky clean, and the laundry service was dirt cheap. The guesthouse is also on a quiet street, and it's a short walk to the Chao Phraya riverboat express. But perhaps best of all, Samsen's staff is really fantastic. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

      it was a little bit hard for us to find at first

      We really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse. The owner is a very nice man who speaks excellent English. We had free wifi in our room (but not all rooms come with wifi), and free wifi in lobby area too. They gave us a good breakfast in the morning and gave us some very useful information about the area, such as what to do, where to eat, get a beer, etc. The only thing that slightly confused us was that all of the roads in the area were call Samsen Road, but they were Samsen 1, 2, 3, etc. We didn't realize this until we had walked up and down two of them, so be aware of that. We will definitely stay at this guesthouse again the next time we are in Bangkok.

      For our first night in Bangkok before moving to Kanchanaburi we were just looking for clean, quiet hotel not too far from the southern bus terminal! Sam Sen Sam look ok on the internet and at a reasonable prize including breakfast we were more than happy with it! Arriving late on the night there was someone there to show us round with an ice glass of water, the room was a good size with clean shower and a nice tradional Thai feel around the place! the staff were very friendly and helped us get to the bus station in the morning, writing the address for the taxi driver in Thai for us and pointing us in the right direction without even asking! It had the added benefit that its in easy walking distance of Khoasan Road! Stanard breakfast was good too!

      Warm, friendly staff; charming hotel”

      Staff were excellent, place is a cute little house with nice garden, included breakfast is great

      Sam Sen Sam is excellently located, about a 20-30 min walk to the Grand Palace/Wat Pho, and 10 minutes from Khao San (a road I recommend avoiding, but the area around it is nice for restaurants and other sightseeing activities). But it's on a quiet lane -- across the street from a small wat -- so you won't get the noise and bustle of the city. By far and away the best thing about Sam Sen Sam, though, is its amazing staff. After making the original Agoda booking, I came back here many times on different stop offs in Bangkok -- the staff here remembered my name, what I'd been up to, and did their best to help me on the next leg of my journey.

      We loved Sam Sen Sam, staff very friendly, breakfast lovely and if you love your food like my husband does they will get you more toast etc at no extra charge. Room and surrounds extremely clean and cosy, the front counter is always manned. No tea and coffee facilities in the room, but there is a coffee bar down in foyer entrance. We were in room 2 and it could get a little bit noisy due to fellow travelers being a bit inconsiderate and slamming the door, not Sam Sen Sams fault though. All in all a very pleasant stay would definitely stay there again.

The only negative was the TV was far from the bed, but we weren't there to watch TV. Make sure you request a room with air conditioning. Transportation is easy to get. Easy to walk to Kao San Road, and the water taxi. Perfect for back packers or people site seeing. The breakfast was adequate. Madame Lek(?), Let(?) was lovely and gracious, helpful.

They were clean and did not cause us any discomfort, our upgraded room was beautiful. The location was great, just 5 mins from KhaoSan road down a quiet street.

      The hotel was very nice, very close to the Samsen Rd. (5-10 min. walk) but in a quiet area, also very close to the river and water bus station. Breakfast was good and the service was perfect. The only small problem that we had was with the air conditioner unit - the air was directed to the bed and the low speed was in fact quite powerful, so it was hard to sleep with it on. But all in one, everything was ok.
