“Disappointing”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

I stayed at Sleep Withinn for two nights and probably wouldn't go back.

Staff are incredibly un-friendly. No eye contact on check-in, and they seemed more interested in making jokes amongst themselves. We didn't feel welcome here at all.

The rooms are small and bathroom virtually non-existent (and this was a 'deluxe' room).

The hotel is in a great location with plenty of food and drink options at your doorstep, however the noise travels right up to your room at all hours.

The room was clean upon arrival, however for an unexplained reason our room did not get serviced which was very disappointing.

Rooftop pool seems okay, had to go back down to reception for towels though as they weren't replenished.

Wifi is available at a small cost, rare for Asia as most hotels have this included. 

I think for what you pay here, you can get better nearby.

I stayed in this hotel with my partner after 10 months in South East Asia, and this was our worst experience by far. The staff were initially friendly, but once a problem arose they were incredibly rude and unhelpful. Upon arrival we were asked to pay for the 5 nights upfront plus a 1000 baht key deposit. One of the staff members filled out our details in their book. We were not asked to sign anything or given a receipt, and we thought this was the normal process.
When we checked out, we were asked to show our receipt to get our 1000 baht deposit back. Since we were never given one, we then spent 40 minutes trying to get our money back. The manager was off duty and could not be contacted, and the young male staff member was very rude. Given the fact that all customers must pay the 1000 baht on arrival, we thought it would be obvious that we also had paid it. The female staff member finally handed over our 1000 baht.
The only reason hotels like this stay in business is that there are so many tourists coming to Bangkok. Do yourself a favour and give Sleep With Inn a miss.

Room Tip: Ask for a room a back to be marginally quieter

I stayed here with a friend a couple of weeks ago. Initially I had no problems with my stay but on our second night there we went out for the evening. On returning at 2am we disturbed one of the chambermaids in our room (despite there being a do not disturb sign on the door). She said that she was changing our towels but we discovered that she had stolen dollars and Thai baht from my bag. We complained to reception since a manager was apparantly not working and they refused to call the police for us- stating that if we wanted to do something about it then we would have to find the police ourselves. Their manner was unprofessional and aggressive and I am extremely unhappy that money was stolen from our locked room during our stay. I would advise anyone not to stay at this unsafe hotel.

This property was recommended to us by family friends. It's a very nice Hotel for brief stop - over stays in Bangkok. Sleep WithInn is a small, but very clean Hotel conveniently located to the many attractions in Bangkok.

The rooms are very small but spotless with a mini fridge included. All the standard features as well including Air Conditioning, Television, Phone, etc. There is a paid Wifi internet service available which is very inexpensive.

We especially enjoyed the rooftop outdoor swimming pool after a day in the hot and muggy Bangkok sun!
Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times during our stay.

Although this Hotel is located in the busy tourist area, next to Khao San Road etc. it is exciting to experience all this in Bangkok! Walk easily to restaurants, bars and attractions from here including the Grand Palace, River and much more!

All in all, a great pick for a reasonably priced hotel in this popular area.

My only suggestion is to reserve a room at the rear of the hotel as the main street (Rambuttri Street) becomes very noisy in the evening to all hours of the night. There is a convenient 24 hour 7-11 convenience store attached to the hotel building, which is nice for purchasing snacks, beer and other goodies!

Overall we were very happy with this pick for our few days in Bangkok.

Room Tip: For a less noisy room, ask to be put at the back of the Hotel, not facing the main street.

The Sleep Withinn hotel is an exception in the Khao San area. It's pretty new, stylish and clean. Despite the fact that it is in the Rambuttri street, parallel to Khao San Road the rooms are quiet. We booked a standard double room with air con and en-suite bathroom. The rooms are medium sized and the bathrooms are not too small. The only draw back is that there is no wall between bedroom and bathroom but only a glass wall. The bathroom is basically a glass cubicle in the bedroom. You only have a curtain to draw closed when taking a shower. Be aware when travelling with (only) friends of the other sex.
The rooms and are clean, the sheets and towels too. The pool on the roof top is also a bonus. The staff is very nice, the reception open 24 hours. Storing luggage is no problem and very safe.
The location is great. Right in the middle of the backpacker district. Organising onwards travel and meeting fellow travellers is very easy. You can also walk to the lying Buddha and Great Palace.

The hotel is located in a very good location but the staff are not helpful at full. No smile! I wanted to borrow an adapter from them, they just reply me no, then asked me go to buy. I asked how and where, they just turn their heads down. Besides that, no noise from outside but inside. The passengers of the hotel reached at mid-nit, i don't understand why they like to talk loudly at the corridor and bang the door for so many times, making a lot of noise. What a stupid idiot they are! Make noise at 3am onwards. Stayed there for 2 nights, 2 nights also happened the same thing.

Room Tip: if your next door won't make noise and bang door. You may have a good night sleep.

This was our first trip to Bangkok, and we weren't disappointed with the choice in hotel. It is in a great location for places to eat and drink, also easy to find and good value for money. We didnt have a problem with noise from outside being so close to Khao San Road, even though this had been mentioned in reviews prior to our stay. Would stay there again for sure!
