We have stayed here for 2 nights. We were looking for a budget accomodation close to the center. The idea of staying in an old style wooden house was very appealing therefore we decided to go ahead with the booking and give this place a chance despite the fact of shared showers and toilets ( we usually trying to go...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 1 night and didn't stay any longer as we were quite clearly not welcome! We enquired about room availability with the eldest lady at the desk (presumably it was a family run business) and the response we got was "yes! No AC! No smoking! No loud! No guest!" uhhhhhhhm ok! 👍 By this...

I stayed here a few years ago because it was very cheap, and returned because we were looking for budget accommodation. All I can say is, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Despite the prices literally doubling since then (we paid 350 THB for a double), none of the facilities have improved: the room we were...

Quiet and small rooms. Essential accomodations with competitive price. Customers are young and old travellers. Pretty clean, it depends on which kind of guests are living in. Nice place where meeting weird and interesting people. Connection depends on position of your room.

The room was clean. Bed was hard. No AC only a fan. Only two shared hot showers, but in the heat of Bangkok a cold shower might be to prefer. There are A LOT of small rules in the guesthouse you must follow, which is a bit wired. The staff is doesn't seem to interested in helping you with anything.

The guest house is perfectly located and the staff very friendly. Althought the street is calm, the isolation of the rooms is non existant, so you can hear your neighbours speaking, watching tv at 1pm, having a skype conversation at 3am, singing and playing guitar at 7 am.. well if you need some rest, not advisable, otherwise if you want...

This accomodation has a really good value for money, situated in the center of the city near the Santichay Prakam Park and Chaopraya river on Samsen soi 1. I stayed on the first floor because single rooms are only there for 200 baht per night but unfortunately without windows and AC. Toilets and showers are common near there. Sometimes pretty...

Strange the man that booked me in was a nice sort of fellow. I did not experience any nastiness. The room was B200 with use of a community line of showers and toilets. My only complaint about these was that there was no place to hang clothes in the showers. The bed was hard. The Wi Fi was B30 an...

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.
