After one night of a six night stay, I have moved to a 5* characterful hotel, next to a metro station costing just fractionally more that Kasayapi. I was refunded equivalent to one night's rate. I booked Kasayapi due to such good reviews and its location. There are many positives and I am sure certain people would love this place and find it quaint and charming but this is a special holiday for me and I paid a large sum for a number of things I found I did not get. I am left disappointed and substantially out of pocket. First the positives: spotlessly clean, comfy bed, big room (superior twin), lovely garden, next to Metro, secure entry to the property, quiet room, good breakfast, friendly staff and great massage place across the road. However, for the price they charge, the things that need addressing are: In the time I was there (22 hours), there was no internet. They were apologetic and said twice that there would be internet by certain times but this did not happen. I needed it for work and, whatever the excuse/reason, this is not acceptable in this day and age for the price they charge. The twin room beds were very close together and, due to layout of the room, impossible to increase the gap. Therefore, there was no bedside table in between the beds, so one bed had no lamp or surface to put drink etc on. The room was very dark and there was little lighting - what there was was very dim and impossible to read at night. The pool is only open from 10am-6pm, when most people would be out exploring. There were only 4 hangers in the wardrobe (for 2 people), although they bought 6 more when I asked. Reception is not 24 hours - I don't think anyone is around overnight. The shower pressure was 'ok' but things like no soap by the sink to wash hands is irritating as is no hook to hang towels. There is a kettle but only enough coffee and tea sachets provided to have one per person. There is a huge TV with only Thai channels. No other channels, so no point having a TV there. Some things like no internet, no cable TV and no bedside table and lamps fit for purpose are unacceptable for the price I paid, while other things are just irritating. Friendly people are great but I paid a lot of money (in UK standards let alone Thai) expecting a certain standard of room and facilities (pool, internet etc) which I did not get.…
This hotel is brand new and run by a friendly, welcoming family. You feel like a part of the family as you get good insights and tips for your trip to Bangkok. We even got a private tour to the nearby local food market by the owner. The room is clean and the bed is really comfy. We appreciate the effort towards minimazing laundry and plastic waste. The breakfast is fresh and tasty. We loved the exotic thai dished and fresh fruit! The new MRT station Itsaraphap is only a few steps from the hotel, and in a couple of minutes you’ll be downtown. See the attached picture for directions to DMK airport. We’ll definitely be back – thank you so much!
We visited Bangkok in Nov 2019 and chose Kasayapi hotel because of the good comments they had. We were not disapointed, we really loved it! Excelent location: you just walk some steps to the metro station, almost in front of the hotel there’s an awesome thai massage place, and is just some blocks away from Wat Arun (10min). The room has beautiful decoration and is very comfortable. The owner received you every morning for breakfast with a big smile offering delicious thai food and excelent recomendations about what to do in Bangkok.
Very nice and clean place to stay. Breakfast was very good and original Thai. You can choose American Breakfast too, but we didn't take that option. Hotel is a little oasis in a great turbulent City. Noom was a great host and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a very good time and would definetly choose that Hotel again. Thanks for all.
We just spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel and it truly was blissful. We felt so genuinely welcomed by Noom, Fah and all of the other staff and were made to feel very special. The hotel is an amazing escape from busy Bangkok but yet so central. The new metro stop “Itsaraphap” is just outside the main gate into the hotel and connects the hotel to the whole city for a very cheap fare. It is very easy to get to/from Suvarnabhumi airport (BKK) by taking the airport rail link to Makkasan station, where you can join the metro line right beside it in Phetchaburi - the metro will bring you to the hotel door (total cost - about €5 for 2 people!). The hotel is absolutely beautiful! Noom has done amazing work with the grounds and it’s like an oasis. There is a swimming pool which we didn’t use but it was enjoyed by other guests. The room was stunning. Our room was modelled after Wat Arun temple and the other rooms are modelled after other temples in the area. The beds are unbelievably comfortable and the shower was lovely. We opted the local style breakfast which was delicious. It was our first experience of a Thai breakfast and it was different every morning for us. We could not recommend this hotel enough! …
Hello Noom & Fah.. staying at Kasayapi was a perfect start to our family vacation in Thailand..the warmth and friendliness makes Kasayapi team much much more than just a Hotel.. we've felt welcomed and taken care of throughout our entire stay..not to forget the a delightful Thai breakfasts..I sincerely recommend Kasayapi to each and every one looking for Thai hospitality at it's best.. I wish Kasayapi team all the very best that they truly deserve !! with Merwin Dsouza
I love places that run by passionate people. Kasayapi gives me a sense of home away from home Thank you for the thoughtful arrangement especially the breakfast and morning walk to local market Will revisit again.
For more than 110 USD, you get literally only a bed and a breakfast (very clean and well cared). No restaurant, 1 towel (reused every day), facility manned from 8 am to 8 pm only, no reception (except for a nice open air, .... and open heat, little space), no proper swimming pool, no business facilities, no phone in the room, no parking, etc. It might be a nice tourist bed & breakfast if their prices were compatible with it.
This is my 4th time in Bangkok. Basically, I’ve seen almost all the touristy spots so I was looking for some serious downtime with a lot of good Thai food, massage, a little bit of shopping and a nice and relaxing place to stay. Kasayapi did not disappoint. Our room is so cozy, with the sound of birds chirping in the morning. I was introduced to some local thai food for breakfast which I haven’t tried before, and a 180 baht Thai massage. Too bad that we weren’t able to bring any swim wear as the pool is so inviting. Oh we’re are also taught by the two sisters to make organic liquid cleaner made out of natural materials. Definitely coming back with some friends again.
This is staycation for me but first time visit to Thailand for my friend. Initially, I planned to stay on the riverside so that it's convenient to visiting the Palace and temples by boats. However, after doing the researches, I found that the riverside hotels are all typical chain hotels. Their decorations are boring and are quite dated. I accidentally came across Kasayapi Hotel and read all the fantastic reviews across all websites. What drawn me to this hotel (apart from all the great reviews) is that they can arrange Thai-style breakfast because my friend wanted to try the typical dishes that local Thai people normally have for breakfast). It's also not so far from Wat Arun, so I think I will give this one a try even though it's not on the riverside. It was indeed the right decision as our entire experience was fantabulous which will definitely have a special place in my friend's memory. if I would give a definition for Kasayapi, It's simply a boutique hotel with homestay-like experience. K.Noom and her staff treated us like we are visiting our relative's house and stay with them. K.Noom shared with us the history of this area and asked us to join her to the local market in the morning so that my friend can offer food to monk too, which I highly recommend everyone. She let us choose the food we wanted to try in the market and everything looks interesting. She bought the food back to set up the table for us at the hotel (she did buy plentifully as she wanted my friend to try a bit of everything (how nice and thoughtful she is!). We really enjoy our trip to the local market and our stay at Kasayapi. The bedroom are spacious and comfy. I even asked her for the pillow detail so I can buy it too. That's how comfy it is. Nothing to complain except that we wish the room had more hooks for hanging something. Location wise, the MRT is literally next door but it will be opened in Aug this year. It's in walking distance to Wat Arun but could take about 15+ mins. However, you can also take Tuk Tuk or taxi for a short ride. In the beginning, my friend wasn't sure whether it was a good idea when I told her that we will change the hotel from Rachaprasong area to this one but after the trip she said that it's worth the moving hassle. Not only we could start visiting the temples early, but she also got to experience the local that she wouldn't have a chance to if she stayed in CBD area. Highly recommended!…
