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.

... family around Bangkok; I understand that they are popular here. Mr Jack said that things are better after the military coup. Beforehand, groups of people wearing red or yellow shirts would fight in the street. We didn't see much of a military presence today, except when we walked onto the Rama bridge. Half a dozen or so soldiers were stationed at one end, presumably because it is of high strategic ...
... the "Golf Bar" whose main selling point was that they don't check ID! After our travelling we don't stay out too late but it had been a nice evening and hopefully an introduction to how Thailand, and the next "X" months travelling are going to be! 29th September 2014 Feeling refreshed (particularly Miss Leigh after sleeping through her alarm) we attacked the sights of old Bangkok, plans to see The Grand Palace, Wat Anun and the like but little did ...
... At the counter Sarah gave other her passport and we were instantly escorted upstairs. Looked like we weren't checking in here. This I thought was a good sign. Another great sign was that the lady hit the lift for 32. The second highest floor. Just having a normal room would have been something really special but we had a lot more in store. We were staying on the executive floor. We were taken to the executive lounge which had massive sofas with a view out to the whole of Bangkok. ...
... the town tomorrow. Might do a bicycle tour after that. 10/03/2014 Another great day! Woke up early and went on my own walking tour. Firstly went to crazy house which is exactly as it sounds! The photos tell they're own story. Basically the house looks like the lady who made it....haunted. Apparently she still lives there but god knows where! Then I went back into town where my intention was to rent a bike and head off on my travels. I ...
... roads exclaiming in his broken English "zig-zag wow.....!" we all had a whale of a time! An hour or so and many close shaves later; he pulled out of a street we didn't recognise and suddenly our hotel was in front of us - amazing!!
We dumped our bags and went out for a celebratory meal at our favourite restaurant in Siam Square, only to find it had just closed early due to impending protests damn it!! We decided to ...
