A hidden gem bit far from but walkable”
This place had my doubts in terms of ratings but post my visit, I can say it was worth the pricing. Owner is so friendly and helpful in every aspect. The property is not so far from main road and walkable. Though not much eating options closeby , not so far from main locations. Rooms were compact (could be more spacious) but the facilities were useful and compact. The only complaint I had was the bathroom size. for a big size man like me, it was a tough task everyday to use it. The place could have scored perfect 10 if it wasnt for the stingy bathroom size. Amenities wise, I got everything including everyday refill of water. Breakfast adequate and fufilling. Nothing much to complain
Best Hotel for Medium Budget Travellers”
First, It has the location which is very close to lots of famous place. It is on the very center of Bangkok. A lot of bus stations and taxi, tuk tuk around there. Khao San Road just 5 mins walk, 15 mins to The Royal Place, 15 mins to Golden Buddha Temple,... Through It in the center but It still so quiet and peaceful. Secondly, price is cheap. Almost 200 usd for 3 nights in Deluxe room. Idk about the other room but mine was amazing. All facilities are on the good condition. Room services is also great. You will not have to worry about your stuffs. It stay where it is when you came back. I left money and jewelry on the table but they were not move. Thirdly, breakfast and informations. You will get your breakfast served perfectionaly and delicious. And you will provided a card have name of the hotel in Thais, a map of famous places they made for traveling. And you are free to ask informations. They are very kind to explain detaily for you. My first trip to Thailand and love this hotel.
Great hotel especially for families”
Hotel was in the heart of the city. 1 block away from the Democracy Monument with nearby McDonalds and 711. Walking distance from the night market. Simple but filling plated breakfast. Best thing is the sodas are for free! Employees are multitaskers so they know more about the hotel. Ambiance feels like a hidden garden. Overall great hotel
Older hotel, great location and excellent service. The owner is very pleasant & helpful.”
NA. Did not see le.
Our second time of stayed,Old but very clean,cold aircond,comfortable bed, hot shower,all fine but the room doesn't keep noise very well,we could here something from connected room, but its ok for us, we love the location where we walk for fun roadside foods, temples, market,river,walking street with pubs and restuarante.
Best maintained hotel in Bangkok”
Con: No spray hose for toilet or coffee pot.. That's pretty well it. Breakfast great! Fresh fruit plate, eggs, toast, and coffee. When you pull up to the front you first say.. hmm what have I booked here. Then amazingly there is this fantastic building tucked in the back. Truly top notch. There are massive rooms on the top floors for those with a bigger budget then me. My room had a tub and double sink. Excellent cleaning staff and very high standards. 5 minute walk to Khaosan rd.
Hard to find but pleasant hotel once you get there”
All went well except wifi which was quite bad inside the room. Had to seat outside room to get good signal. Breakfast could be better, suggest some more variety & juice glasses could be fill up more than a quarter 😜
As a family of four, we booked a family room and we had plenty of space. The room was very spacious-included a sitting area with a table and chairs-as was the bathroom. The location is perfect if you want to be near-but not too close-to Khao San Road, as it’s less than a 10 min.walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful whether you’re looking to book a taxi or need directions somewhere. The breakfast is basic. It’s a set breakfast - not a “help yourself” buffet as is common at many hotels now. It includes coffee, juice, a small plate of fruit, toast and eggs. It’s adequate and the ambiance is lovely. It’s like eating in someone’s dining room rather than a hotel. The WiFi doesn’t always work great, but worked fine for the most part. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you’re looking to stay somewhere that has Thai character and feels more like home than hotel...
Overall is a pleasant stay. The only things make me frustrated is no kettle and hair dryer. Breakfast is simple but delicious. Near to the khaosan road only take 10mins walking distance. Will stay again in next visit.
Staff and Location were great”
I'd like to thank the staff due to their helpful and friendly attitude. And the location is very good for its value. But the room was very very small and the furniture was old. In summary, hotel was above medium.
Family with teen”
Perfect location to see all the historical sites, close to ferry to get to other parts of the city . Breakfast is great in a nice garden setting with a very nice courteous service. We had the jr suite perfect for a couple travelling with a teenager. Would come back and highly recommend if looking for a Thai hotel located in a quiet side street.
Most warm welcome to thailand we could’ve asked for! Hotel was at an amazing location, only a short walk from Khao San road and temples! Room was cleaned daily and stocked with pop and water. Very tasty complimentary breakfast! Staff was absolutely amazing! So kind and attentive! Our bags got lost at the airport and staff made sure to call airport several times until all was sorted out. Just genuinely kind and happy people, had an amazing stay and would definetly return! Khob Khun Kha!
Great hotel, helpfull staff!”
The place is perfect, Nice breakfast. Please figure out the way to the hotel before going there because it was really hard to find. I would recommend taking a taxi to the democracy building or kao san road and walk from there. Be Sure te use Google maps or any map really! Stay was Great.
we didn't really know what we got ourselves into when we arrived at the end of a narrow hidden street right off democracy monument. it turned out to be a great stay for a quiet night only 10min walk from the heavy khaosan road nightlife. perfect location. The room was clean and confortable although the bathroom is quite small. The staff is very kind and helpful.
Very nice hotel, well situated, close from Kao San Road and many public transports. Nice room, with good wifi, air con and hot shower. Breakfast is OK, nothing special but good. Staff is very helpful and kind, smiling. The big plus for us is the quiet location, easy walking distance from our favorite place in Bangkok for night life and shopping.
Central location yet quiet”
This hotel is just off the Democracy monument, within 25 minutes walk - evading traffic included - to the Grand Palace, boats, Khaosan Rd, we didn't stay long enough to find out what is close by. Breakfast is adequate, but can get tiring after a few days. The facilities are a tad worn, yet charming, and they get by with small fixes. Our bathroom had shower water draining into the main floor, so be careful. Worth a small investment for a safety correction. Rooms were large. Would be nice to have cable though. Staff is friendly and helpful. They can assist in booking rides, shows, tours etc. just be sure you are clear on price and timing. They allowed us a late check out and to store a piece of luggage for a week, for free. I would come back- maybe with a different bathroom.
little piece of heaven”
This place is amazing! Great location. A little hard to find at first for any cab driver, but well worth it. It's maybe a block from the democracy monument. And about 2 city blocks from the grand palace, and koh san road maybe a block away . You couldn't ask for a better location. It's got air con and is very clean. The staff speaks great english and everyone there was super friendly. I would absolutely stay here again!
We stayed just two nights in Bangkok and can certainly recommend this hotel for its welcome, comfort, cleanliness and convenience. It is located near Democracy Monument so reasonably close to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Khao San Road, the Chao Phraya River and a good selection of restaurants. Our room was clean with a comfortable bed, excellent WiFi. television, and a very small bathroom with hot water. A simple breakfast, served in their pleasant restaurant, is included in the room price and comprises a selection of fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order with toast & jam, etc., coffee or tea served by friendly, cheerful staff. We can highly recommend this accommodation. An excellent choice for a stay in Bangkok.
The best kept secret in the heart of historic downtown!”
Charming leafy entrance beckons inside this quiet oasis located a five-minute walk to the Democracy monument. Kao San Road is a short walk away too if you fancy a little higher energy. The English-speaking Thai staff and owner (whom we saw often) are lovely and accommodating. We booked two tours through the hotel: the canal tour (including a short visit to a nearby floating market) and the dinner boat cruise (we were on the top deck - a must if you can get it!). As I was travelling with my dad, a senior, this was perfect for us, although people who have more time and are more mobile may wish to make the trip to the larger floating market. The dinner cruise was a standout event - we enjoyed the entertainment (70's and earlier cover band, Elvis impersonator - again, may not be for everyone, BUT the company os very professional, wait staff extremely attentive, departure and arrival on time, food quite good - a mix of Thai and international). Lovely views of the Bangkok skyline from the boat. The hotel's driver was excellent and on time. We also booked our return taxi to the airport. You pay a little more for the privilege, but again, it met our needs. (ie. 6am departure! - the trip only took 35 minutes at that time of day). The hotel owner is often present and as she herself said, "this hotel is my passion!" I would definitely return to this hotel and have already recommended it to a colleague. The lobby area has seating and outside table as well. We enjoyed the fact that we could get a drink in the evening also. Breakfast was tasty - egg, fruit, toast and excellent coffee. Don't expect to eat and go, though. Each breakfast is lovingly prepared as it is ordered - so save a few minutes to enjoy the greenery and perhaps strike up a conversation with your table neighbour! The bedroom was spacious (2 bed) and clean. Television and A/C worked well. The shower was hot and good pressure. Fridge stocked with complimentary water and soft drinks. Only a few small thing
Great hotel, good location ”
We had a great stay. Good breakfast fruit, toast, and your choice of eggs. Everything was great, clean room, good location apart from the kind of dingy side road it is off. Hard to find a lot of taxi drivers have no clue where it is since it's off a side road. Only thing I don't like is the bathrooms are so small our knees hit the wall when you use the toilet. Overall would recommend for sure
