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.

Morning broke and so began our first full day in Thailand, I cant imagine being here and seeing these things with anyone other than my smiling husband. Ian's excitement is contagious and you cant help but smile when you see him perched on the back of a tuk tuk going what seems a million miles an hour (sorry mom).
We finally got our visas submitted and hit up the craziest mall I have ever ...
... anything to get the message across I needed heat Not to say we didn't have some great food in South America and discover a lot of new recipes that you will all be enjoying at the next Battram/Venter BBQ, in particular civiche for Oscar (unless it's salmon) but you love what you love and after my first mouthful of Tom Yum last night, followed by gulping down the sweetest fruit juice to douce the pain of not eating even mild hot food for 3 months, I thought it was time to ...
After a quick flight I was back in Bangkok and off to 3 Howw hostel, but this time their location near Khosan Rd. Greeted with a friendly smile despite it being very late I was shown to my 10 mixed dorm and was happy that the mattress was equally as cloud like as the other location despite this one being way more run down. Teeth brushed and ear plugs in I passed out before I could even catch up on my FB feed. The next day consisted of a few to ...
... coins at the entrance of the hall which you can drop in the 108 bronze bowls which line the length of the walls. Dropping the small pennies in makes a nice ringing sound and even if your wishes don’t come true, the money goes towards helping the monks renovate and preserve Wat Pho.
When King Rama I established the new capital city in 1782 Wat Pho became a significant temple located at the rear of the Grand Palace. The King ordered to renovate the temple in ...
We woke up around 8:00 to get an early start and to try and beat the heat. After checking out we hopped in a cab provided by our bellboy to head to Wat Phra Kaeo and the Grand Royal Palace. The palace requires modest dress, so we had to wear trousers and shirts that had sleeves to our elbows. The staff translated for us to ensure that we would have a meter running for the journey. We started driving and he kept saying 100 baht, 100 baht. Matt was sitting in front and not having this, ...
