Not so mad Bangkok

A travel blog entry by benandjeanann on Apr 19, 2014

We flew from Nepal to Bangkok via Delhi and arrived into Bangkok at around 7pm to serious humidity. We were slightly dreading the thought of another busy city but our main aim was to get our Vietnamese visas sorted which we knew was going to take at least 3 days. Although we were not in Bangkok on our trip to Thailand last year, as soon as we …

A complete break from routine this morning and not only have we changed what we eat for breakfast but we don't even eat at the guest house !! Who says we are boring and predictable ?
It is quite pleasant again this morning so we go for a short walk before returning to the room. I am still not feeling too good and lying around is about all I …

Nothing to do today - but sweat

A travel blog entry by steve_m on Mar 21, 2014

No rush to do anything this morning so we are a bit later getting up and enjoy a liesurely breakfast at the Guest House. We always eat the same fried breakfast here but recently it has been getting more and more expensive and the size of the portions have been getting smaller. This morning we both decide to try something different and the days of …

    Historical Traveler Reviews New Siam Guest House II Bangkok

    Super Hotel, werden wieder hinfahren

    from

    Dies ist das erste Hotel, in dem wir in Thailand wohnten (hatten einen positiven Bericht darüber in der Times gelesen) und waren sehr beeindruckt. Es ist ganz in der Nähe der Khao San Road in einem ruhigen Viertel, ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um die Stadt zu erkunden. Es liegt in der Nähe einer Anlegestelle für Flußboote. Das Personal war freundlich und sehr tüchtig. Im Erdgeschoss gibt es ein nettes, kleines Café und eine Lobby sowie ein Internetcafé und ein Reisebüro. Es ist ein sicheres Hotel mit Schlüsselkarte für die Zimmer und Überwachungskameras in den Fluren. In meinem Zimmer gab es auch einen programmierbaren Safe. Das Bad ist etwas klein, aber für den Preis und die Lage kann man sich nicht beschweren. Die Zimmer sind sauber, einfach, aber hübsch. Wir hatten Klimaanlage und Satellitenfernsehen. Gegen eine kleine Gebühr kann man sein Gepäck im Gepäckraum abstellen. Wir hatten für unsere Rückreise nach dem Besuch im Süden in dieser Stadt ein anderes Hotel gebucht und wünschten, wir hätten wieder dieses Hotel gebucht. Wenn wir wieder hierher kommen, werden wir es sicherlich tun.

    Jeder in dem Hotel ist fröhlich- Personal und Gäste in gleicher Weise. Wenn Sie in dem Hotel wohnen, sind Sie in der Nähe des Flusses und ein paar Minuten Fußweg entfernt gibt es einen hübschen, kleinen Park am Flussufer (um die Festung herum), wo wir einem Popkonzert lauschten. In der Nähe gibt es auch hübsche preisgünstige Restaurants. Leicht zu Fuß zu erreichen sind auch das Grand Palace und das Nationalmuseum. Man kann es im Voraus per Internet buchen, was in der Hochsaison ratsam ist, da das beliebte Hotel von vielen Leuten besucht wurde, als wir kurz vor Weihnachten dort waren.

    Guesthouse in bester Lage!

    from

    Im New Siam Guest House übernachten wir schon seit mehreren Jahren. Seit der Eröffnung des New Siam II sind wir regelmässig dort gelandet. Es bietet gegenüber den vielen günstigen Luxushotels im Business District eine wesentlich bessere Lage im Traveller Viertel Bangkoks. Man kann per Bus, Taxi und Boot sehr schnell alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten, oder Shopping Center erreichen und in unmittelbarer Nähe werden viele günstige Restaurants und Bars geboten.

    Die Zimmer sind mittlerweile alle mit Aircon, TV und Safe ausgestattet und stets sehr gepflegt. Auf einem Zimmerservice wird hier verzichtet, aber bei unseren kurzen Aufenthalten haben wir diesen auch noch nie vermisst. Dafür kann ein super Preisleistungsverhältnis geboten werden. Das Restaurant im New Siam bietet ein abwechslungsreiches und gutes Frühstücksangebot zu sehr günstigen Preisen. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hat stets ein Auge auf die Sicherheit im Guest House. Alle Flure sind Kameraüberwacht und werden durch Personal auf jeder Etage betreut.

    Die nahe gelegene, sehr belebte Kao Sarn Road und deren Nachbarstrassen sind schnell zu Fuss zu erreichen. Dennoch liegt das New Siam in einer ruhigen Seitengasse. So muss man am abend nicht mehr unbedingt in ein Taxi oder Tuk Tuk steigen um Essen zu gehen, oder einen Drink zu nehmen.

    Wir werden in jedem Fall wieder kommen und dann vielleicht auch die gerade im bau befindlichen neuen Häuser des New Siam ausprobieren: Super Siam und New Siam Riverside. Wir sind schon gespannt darauf.

    Excellent Service and Value

    from

    I recently returned from a two week trip to Thailand. New Siam II was the perfect affordable option in Bangkok. I spent four nights there at the beginning of my trip (while I watted day after day and got suit fittings) a night on my trip up from Ko Samui to Chiang Mai and a final night before flying back to JFK.

    New Siam II was fantastic because it provided a clean, safe and secure option. It is very conveniently located to Pier 13 of the River Taxi which gives you access to the BTS skytrain if you take the 30 minute or so ride to the central pier.

    The rooms are not cleaned during your stay unless you request them. The AC worked excellent, the room had a safe, and an electronic key card. At night there was absolutely no noise from neighboring rooms and very little street noise as it is set back in an alley. The location also allows for convenient access to the Khao San Rd scene if that is what you are looking for. Although the Khao San party is close by the party atmosphere does not travel back to New Siam. I was very happy to see that they did not allow for outside guests to come up to rooms which is essential for keeping out sex tourists.

    The taxi service to the airport was cheap and convenient. The laundry service was efficient and actually got the stains out of my clothing (i cannot say the same about some of the other laundry services I used in Thailand). I didn't use the pool but a lot of families were enjoying it. The restaurant was good to have a snack at or to start out the day for breakfast. The people working there are genuinely glad to see you and are quite kind. I will definitely stay here again and again. Oh yeah, and the luggage storage was fantastic at only 15 baht a night. I paid 790 baht a night for a room.

    New Siam II was a total steal. Be sure to tip the restaurant employees big. They were great!

    The best value place to stay in the Koh San Road Area

    from

    We have stayed in the New Siam II a number of times over a few years and, in our view, it is easily the best value hotel in the Koh San Road area.

    Prices at the New Siam have gone down significantly over the last couple of years due to the increased competition from new, large hotels nearby. This makes it even better value than before! We stayed here again in December 2005 after spending a night from the Rambuttri Village Inn, around the corner. The Village Inn had gone downhill from when we stayed a couple of years ago (and had cheap opening offers). We should have just gone to the New Siam II directly again!

    It is consistent in quality for a budget hotel. It's clean, secure, the staff are polite and efficient, the tour desk is helpful/fairly priced and food is basic but cheap and good quality. All in all, there's not much more it can do to be best value in the area (and we checked again all the other and cheaper accommodation nearby, in true backpacker style!).

    Super hotel, will return

    from

    This is the first place we stayed in Thailand (had read a good review of it in The Times), and were very much impressed. It is just off Khao San Road in a quiet area that is a great base for getting around the city. I think it may be near a river boat pier. The staff was friendly and very efficient and there is a nice little cafe and lobby on the ground floor as well as an internet cafe and travel agency. It is a safe place with key card entry for the rooms as well as security cameras in the hallways and my room had a programmable safe as well. The bathroom is a little bit small, but for the price and location, who can complain? The rooms are clean, simple but nice. We had a/c and satellite t.v. They also have a baggage storage room for a small fee. We had booked another place for our return trip to this city after seeing the south, and wished that we had booked into this place again and will definitely do so when we return someday. Everybody is cheerful at this place -staff and guests alike. When you stay at this place you are near the river and there is a nice little park on the riverside (around the fortress thing) just a few minutes walk away where we watched a little pop concert and there are nice little inexpensive restaurants nearby too. The Grand Palace and National Museum aren't too far of a walk away either. You can book ahead on the internet and that may be a good idea in high season as this place was definitely a favorite with a lot of people when we were there just before Christmas.

    Comfort near Khao San

    from

    This is a great guesthouse about 3 minutes walk from Khao San in Bangkok - in fact it is just down an alley from Thanon Phra Athit next to the river. You can catch the airport bus A2 to the stop just across the road for 100Bht. It has a nice outdoor pool and a restaurant on the ground floor which is open from 6am until 10:30om daily and serves a large variety of Thai and Western food at good prices.

    The rooms have either fan or air-con and are very secure (they use a key card system). I stayed in a air-con double for 790Bht per night and it was large and clean with a TV. The bathroom was small with a shower and sink and although basic it was clean. The rooms had a safe and a set of scales (very handy for weighing luggage) but no fridge. There is a lift which helps when transporting luggage and the hotel will organise a taxi to the airport for you for 290Bht. There is an onsite internet cafe and tour desk.

    This hotel is a bit more expensive than most in the area but worth it for the clean, quiet safe surrounds. The staff are helpful, even when busy. It is a very short walk to Khao San and it is easy to find tuk-tuks or take the water taxis as the stop is just across the road. The bus to Chatachuk market on the weekend also leaves from across the road. There are many good restaurants and a 7-eleven nearby. The New Siam group has an online booking system which can be found via their website.

    This hotel was the best "find" I have ever camë accross in Bangkok. Located just off of Kao San Road, it is exteremely organized, clean and affordable hotel with friendly service. I will definitely return.

    Back again

    from

    We are returning to Bangkok again this week - this is our 9th trip to the city in 2 years. I have stayed in a variety of accomodation in Thailand from 5 star hotels to huts on a beach,but you cannot beat the New Siam 2 for service, friendliness, location, value for money and cleanliness. It is a wonderful hotel, the travel desk is fairly priced and definitely not a rip off, the rooms are secure and the staff do everything they can to help you.

    You couldn't do much better!

    Better than great for the price

    from

    Initially I thought the prices were too good to be true given the description on the their website), but it was true. Very reasonable prices for a good place. Granted it is not a resort, you probably just want to sleep, shower, the occasional cooling down at the pool, and for that it's good. The washroom could be a little larger, but hey, who wants to spend more than 15-20min a day in there? I had little interaction with the people there, but when I did they were nice. Oh, and the location was good if you wanted to stay close, but not inside Khao San. Bottomline, I'd stay there again ...

    Very nice guest house

    from

    The New Siam 2 has a great location and very good service. We used it as our "home base" while doing multiple side trips to Kanchanaburi, Ko Samui, Cambodia, etc. They held our bags for us each time, at a very reasonable rate, and even did our laundry while we were gone. It was waiting for us every time. The food is pretty good, and the pool is nice - a rarity in guest houses of this pricing level. We paid 750 baht per night, and then 700 baht after the 2nd night or so. I don't think they advertise the 700 rate.

    The beds are quite hard, but otherwise the rooms are clean and well-kept, and the air-con worked like a charm. Highly recommended...
