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.

At this point, my nervousness has transformed into an unexplainable excitement for all that is yet to come. Until then, the adventure continues this weekend in Bangkok. It is Halloween, after all.

... dinner a few doors down at Gun Thai (pad thai and veggie spring rolls), and yes, more beer (Chang - which means elephant). The street is very lively at night, so many people and vendors selling various things. One guy sets up a cart selling various cooked bugs and spiders. Yuck! Tomorrow we have a 1/2 day tour - "Temple and River of Kings". We see the Grand Palace, Wat Pra Kaew, Wat Pho, then tour the "klongs" (canals) of Bangkok, then in the evening we meet our tour group. Can't ...
... In addition, if they ended up in a classic boxing tie-up, they were allowed to try and trip the other fighter to the ground, and they were allow to kick the other fighter in the leg at any time so takedowns were relatively common if one fighter was trying to be too aggressive. This made for an exciting bout, but the real excitement was generated by the crowd. They cheered for each hit, no matter how small, and in each fighter's corner a ...
After a good sleep on the night train we arrive back in Bangkok and back at the hotel we all meet at! It was really said that tonight would be our last night. We had told the group how good the MBK shopping mall was and we all went! We all spent most of the day there. ...
