Pluses - very friendly stuff, cheap water and coffee (you can make it by yourself), clean Beth clothes, nice and quiet location, cheap price for single room. Minuses - generally, the building need renovation, no soap in the bathroom, old bed, very poor patio voor the guests, no check in or out between 8pm and 8am. Very bad Internet connection.

It does the job as a cheap little guesthouse, it was nice and clean, though very hot and humid at night so we ended up moving from a fan room to one with A/C, worth the extra 200B a night to actually be able to sleep. In a very good location, close to East gate and major sights, dosent do... More

The house is wonderfully located in a quiet street 2 min walk from sunday market, also close to everything like super market the place itself is super tiny, it is hard to notice it especially when it is next to a fancy hotel. Tiny as it is, it has free hot water, books, clean rooms, a cozy common area to... More

Location of guesthouse is fairly strategic, very near Thapae gate and on Sundays, you can even walk to get to the Sunday Walking Night Market. Room with fan was spacious with king size bed. No problems there. As it was December (winter season), the fan alone was more than cold enough. Only complaint is the sink toilet which was not... More

Ampawan is a lovely simple little guesthouse perfectly located down a quiet street in the Old City. It's near Tha Phae Gate, just off the Walking Street (Sunday night market) and there are a handful of wonderful little restaurants nearby, along with a cooking school just across the street. $9/night will get you a spacious double room with fan (no...

It's a real dog fest at night. The two rooms I had each had fans so the dog barking was loud and clear. A/C would have helped but was not needed other than drown out the dogs. Security is a little iffy: my first room had the door knob falling off and a hotel employee (I think) opened the door... More

I am very disappointed to have to write such a review for a guesthouse I stayed at many times over the last year. I work in Bangkok and came to stay at this guesthouse for 5 weekends in the last year. Every other time, we enjoyed our stay and value for money. We had ants in the bed and bathroom... More
