We stayed here on route home and it was absolutely perfect! The room we had was lovely, the staff were very helpful and professional and really tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The roof top pool was welcome relief from the heat and madness of the city but the location means you're right in the middle of...

Booked room for three people and they changed the price upon check in 1000 baht higher per day. Will be glad to leave in the morning

We stayed in this hotel one night. Although it is in a busy area is very nice, the rooms are comfortable and well equipped. There is a large balcony but do not expect a view that does not exist. Just right for those looking to stay in this area of Bangkok Total answered our expectations.

We stayed here for a night on either side of coming to and leaving Thailand. It was a very clean and pleasant place to stay and the bed was luxuriously big and comfortable.

My friends and I stayed here in December 2014.

At first sight, this place seemed above average. Located on one end of khaosan road, we had everything we needed close by. Downstairs is a McDonald, a coffee shop, and a restaurant. Two doors down and across the street, there are 7-11s. It gets very loud at night, even on the 5th floor. It doesn't quiet down until around 3am....

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.
