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.

... us and asked if we were lost. After some convincing we managed to get in and were met by the helper, Lin. Lin is a tiny bit insane, tiny being the operative word as she is also not much over 4foot tall.. She also had no idea how to use any of the the appliances in the apartment and so watched, with more interest than I thought humanly possible, me making scrambled eggs. After sprucing up to the best of our abilities, we went out into the city to have a bit of an ...
... was now sitting inside the restaurant and looked like he was at least 80 years old. It was probably his family running the place now. It was really hot, and I decided that perhaps its best to just head back to the hostel and catch a nap. So, I went to the near river ferry pier, named Tha Chang. The place was in total chaos. Boats were docking, people were shouting in Thai, there were Chinese/Korean travel groups who had booked their own charter boats, and no one ...
... earlier today. It looks loaded with new experiences. I actually feel like this is “my” neighbourhood, it is so safe and everywhere there are things to see and immerse yourself in. We were walking down Soi Ratchadaphesik this morning and Colette stopped on a bridge to “admire” the canal we were crossing, stating “look here’s a river”…YA…it was an open sewage channel by the way it smelled ...
A midnight flight. A pre-dawn arrival. We're about six hours behind schedule, but schedules are overrated. While waiting for the hotel shuttle, we had a nice conversation with a family from northern Sweden. They too plunge icy rivers but only after a Sauna. We had pre paid the hotel so it made sense to check-in even though we only had about 6 hours before the flight to Cambodia. ...
... to get a sleeper train to chiang mai. I wiled away a bit of time in the nearby park, almost bumping into a huge 'water monitor' lizard before heading back to pick up my bag from the hostel. I then nursed a beer for a couple of hours and headed to the station. Once on the train I took up my upper bunk, which is a lot narrower than a lower bunk) and fell asleep fairly quickly in what was actually a pretty comfortable set up (Apart from occasional jolts from the train ...
