If you are not afraid by the lively khaosan road, this is the perfect place to be in Bangkok. The rooms are beautifully furnished, the beds are very comfortable and there is an appreciated mini-bar. The swimming pool on the rooftop is really warm, and we feel at ease on the lying chairs where you can appreciate a coconut milk... More

We stayed for two nights at the start of our Thai holiday. Room 310 was quiet and comfortable. The AC was great, bed comfy and shower powerful. Right in the middle of all the fun!! Staff were helpful and friendly! Would recommend it to people who don't mind paying a bit more for comfort.

Have stayed here many times. Really good hotel. Ideally situated in the heart of the city and easy to have as a base for exploring the city. Really nice rooms and roof top pool. Try lucky beer if you are in this area as they do a cracking green curry.

Located in the midle of the famous Khao San Road in Bangkok. No noise from the streets. Nice pool and bar on the roof. The room was like a beach house. Perfect for people who like to stay in the midle of everything and stil have a quiet hotel.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
