Stayed for one night before heading to Burma. The rooms are really outdated and are in desperate need of a refurbishment. The walls were badly scuffed and the outdoor seating on the balcony was filthy. I wouldn't recommend staying at this hotel as you can get a lot better for the same money elsewhere in bangkok

not much to add to other comments.... fabulous hotel in perfect location. on one side the busy city and the Khao San road close. very good restaurants and bars just a step away. Cultural sights in walking distance or just by the public boat taxi which leaves and stops on the riverside of the hotel. The rooms (should be riverside!)... More

We stayed on the river this time instead of "new" Bangkok and it was fabulous. This hotel has great rooms looking onto the river with enormous balconies. Staff were lovely. Breakfasts were fine and best of all you have the main attractions of Bangkok e.g. Grand Palace and the Temple of Dawn just a short walk away and the great... More

The hotel was welcoming right from checking in until we paid our final bill, and when we got into our room we were pleasantly surprised to find... More

Excellent first impressions of this place, beautiful foyer and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Our room overlooking the river was huge, very tastefully decorated and had everything you could wish for. The breakfast was great, loads to choose from and the adjoining restaurant serves some of the best food we had on our trip to Thailand. Location is perfect to... More

The customer service is unmatched. Unlike being annoying like many 5-star places can be the staff respected our space but were so friendly and kind. They offered so much help to us. My fiance and I stayed here for a day before going north. They held onto some of our bags until we returned more than 3 weeks later.

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.
