The room was nice, pool was nice, check in was easy as they spoke english, the breakfast was decent, although cold at times, some of the buffet dishes were actually very nice. We stayed for 4 days as planned before moving to a different hotel and we were glad to leave. Here's why: As soon as you walk out of...

Please take the reviews of Khaosan road seriously, if you are over 30 and looking for a true cultural experience don't stay on Khaosan road, if you're under 30 and looking to party, stay here. Having said that, I have no complaints about this hotel. The service was excellent, the rooms were lovely and clean and the hotel pool was...

This hotel is in a really good location for Khao San Road. The rooms were clean and spacious and perfect for what we wanted. The rooftop pool is lovely, nice to escape the madness of the main road! It can be very noisy at night so probably not good for people wanting a quiet night, but this didn't bother us....

More of a frat party place! Yes, it's centrally located; within walking distance of many of the monuments, excellent food, amazing night life, yet very noisy until three in the morning. There seem to be a teenage club down on the first floor of our building, so there are lines of pubescent-looking clubbers beginning around 10 p.m. I was sick...

We booked this as we wanted somewhere half sensible for our first few days in Thailand. The room was a decent size with a good bathroom. Our window looked out over a side street so not much of a view but we weren't there to sit in the room! Khao San Road is lively so if you're expecting a quiet...

Dear Tslilsh, Thank you for commenting on this popular Travel Forum.

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.
