It's a good small hotel in Bangkok. Good position, near the main caothic streets of the city. Near also to the Royal Palace (you can go by foot). Staff is very nice, in particular the Madame, a smiling and beautiful woman, very interested in design and fashion: in fact she use a part of the reception as a small delicious...

Plus : good service, also quite good location with the price like this, clean Minus : old appliances. Like you still find crt tv, old shower. Very small bathroom. Kinda hard to find the hotel because it's in the alley. Overall: it's actually quite good if you don't mind about old stuff like i've said.

Friendly staff, very clean comfortable room with AC. Super quiet when you consider you're in the heart of Bangkok's historical centre. Walking distance to most important wats. Lively night market around the corner. Metro not nearby but taxis are cheap. Basic breakfast but everything you need for two nights in Bangkok.

Initially we found this hotel very difficult to find (as did our taxi driver from the airport). We were dropped off at the wrong hotel by the taxi driver who insisted we were at the correct one, even though I kept telling him we were not. We were about an 8 minute walk from the correct hotel but managed to...

Advantages: quite clean rooms, very good breakfast and nearby the centre of bangkok. Disadvantages: rooms and toilettes are quite small, it's difficult to move around. The owner couldn't help us with anything, she didn't have a map of the city, wasn't able to give us advices about places and activities or the simple finding of a place to buy bus...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
