TravelPod Member ReviewsSourire @ Rattanakosin Island Bangkok
We stayed in room 407, which is to the right of the elevator, from July 30 to August 5.
The woman at the reception desk speaks pretty good English and is helpful when you are looking for places to visit.
When you need help, they come up right away! One night, the A/C was blowing warm air and we called it in to front desk. Within SECONDS, someone was upstairs.
You always have breakfast! Ask for secret fried rice. :)
Safe area away from the noise of Khao San Road. We always felt our belongings were secure.
Bathroom is too small. You may need to sit sideways on the toilet. I am 5'1" and fit alright, but it is really close to the wall.
Thin walls. You can hear every door shut in the hotel.
On our last day, there was a bad smell in our room. We do not know what it is or where it came from.
Elevator is tiny- 6 people max without luggage!
No Room Service
Pro & Con: One night, our bed broke- one of the beams broke so the bed was uneven. We called it in around 11PM and the husband who runs the hotel with his wife came up right away to repair the bed. We would have preferred a new room rather than listen to 45 minutes of hammering, but we were glad he came up right away to fix the problem.

... the guide which he didn’t understand which was lucky.
He then called ahead to book a table at a restaurant which makes the best Pad Thai in Bangkok, it had awards and been in newspapers all over the globe. We waited a bit outside which was pretty cool as we got to see the chefs preparing everything. Again the Brits were annoying me, same comments, but this time apparently they were vegetarian?? This I seriously doubt more like they were scared the prawns weren't ...
... Many large and small tour groups were seated at long tables. That brought a lot of food and while we ate there was a show of traditional dancers. After dinner we went into what looked like a nightclub and watched a show put on by the "lady boys". They are transvestites that are gorgeous. The show was like Zigfield follies meets Las Vegas. It was very entertaining. It was a long day but packed full of amazing ...
... to anyone other than me. Some attractions i visited in Bangkok include Wat Arun, or the Temple of Dawn. I love these ancient Ayutthaya period temples, and with a name that reminds me of a Legend of Zelda game, i had to visit it. While i saw and photographed this temple the last time i was here in 2010, it was only viewed from a river taxi. Another place i went and visited was China town. Here there are many gold shops and the cuisine has a Chinese influence. Shark fin ...
... all the lights went out! It appears that a transformer exploded and took at least a quarter of the market with it! We went back out to the main street and saw a bunch of people gawking at the overhead wires and asked some European looking girls what happened. They said they saw a very bright light (out of the corner of their eyes) for just a second. So that was sort of fun. All the lights were out in the stalls, and the fans were off and then ...
... our room was space age in décor, with large glittery golden boxing gloves on the bed. Not sure of the significance of that. Like the rest of the hotel the room was all psychedelic colors and mood lighting – very Vegas. There was a fancy doggy-pillow for Chandini to sleep on. We put her towel on it to give her bed her own scent.
Otherwise, our short night there was pleasant enough. The staff fell all over themselves pledging their love for ...
