It's a serviceable budget hotel, stayed here for two nights. Staff is fine, location is slightly too far away from khao san to be great although it's certainly withing walking distance. Wi-fi was annoying and forced you to log in every time with every device although the speed was good. Does not offer food or a bar. Only one power... More

Staff are friendly. Location is very good. So close to khao san road (10 min by walking.). Its valur is ok for this price. Rooms are clean and big enough. There is no hair machine in our room. But no really needed if you take a shower in the morning. All day free tea coffee and cookies available. Moreover we... More

Quite a good location, easy to reach to Kaosan Road (15min walking) and clean place. Breakfast is included, which makes even better the price of it! The shower was not very new, but the rest quite good. Once in Bkk I recomend to take tuk-tuks, cheap and they take you everywhere!

Good location in the Khao San Road area, but far enough of a walk away to be a bit more peaceful. Located on a busy road, but our room was not noisy at all. They were refurbishing a lobby when we were there. Room was small but pleasant and the shower was great! Very basic breakfast of tea and toast... More

Have stayed here a couple times. Nice location close to Khaosan area but far away from the madness. For the price, 800 baht a night I haven't found a better place. Rooms are clean and big. Nice bathrooms with separate shower area. Would highly recommend this place.

Just about 10 min walk away from the Khao San Rd. AC working, hot water, clean sheets, friendly staff. My room was next to a quiet side road so I had no problem sleeping as long as I wanted without earplugs. The jetty for the speedboat is another 10 mins around the corner, really handy to get to another place... More

Some of the staff here were not very helpful and did not seem all that bothered with the customers at all. We had no help carrying our luggage up 3 flights of stairs. The porter literally skipped ahead of us without waiting. Reception staff looked annoyed except for one of them whenever we asked them a question and they did... More

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.
