The hotel's location is very far from the Bangkok centre and the sites such as The Grand Palace which is a real downfall. The room we had was quite dated and smaller than expected.

The beds and the floor are clean. The shower and toilet seem a bit stained, but it's fine. The shower in the two single bed rooms is very low. A person taller than 1.60m can't take a shower standing up. It's also a bath, though, so you can take a bath or shower while sitting. The shower in the queen...

I had one amazing week in bansabai. Amazing environment, and real thai people around. Only couple tourists, but super kind staff and thai people. Definately one of the best places to find delicious local food also. The roof pool gives you the chance to fully relax and watch the busy bangkok.

But we used buses (they are very cheap 40cent for ride) and their tuk-tuk for their citizen -or something like that (just wait on bus station, and when you see one with people inside, just wave with your hand - they have route and when you want to go out just ring a bell and pay- it's...

I've been to this charming Hotel a few times over the last couple of years and it felt like home from the very beginning. It might seem at first as it's located too far from the city centre but it won't take more than a short train ride to be in the heart of Bangkok. I usually stay there a...

we choose Bansabi as we needed to waste a day in Bangkok before flying out the next morning. it's a 20 min taxi ride from Don Mueong airport and is far from the hustle and bustle of Khao San Road. the hotel has a great roof top swimming pool, the rooms are comfy and the staff friendly. I'd recommend this...
