Surprisingly nice and affordable 4-star hotel only a 5-minute walk from Khaosan Road
We came here for a staycation during the Halloween weekend when Khaosan road was reopening after a makeover done during the COVID lockdown. We did not expect too much knowing the general area but we were pleasantly surprised : the hotel is a few streets from Khaosan road and though the area is generally old, the hotel itself appears to have been recently refurbished.
The room itself was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel had all the amenities, including a small gym and a pool, though the Khaosan (Banlamphu) area is typically renowned as a party area so I’m not sure who would actually use the pool...
Now, we only had breakfast at the hotel and their breakfast buffet had a large selection, even fresh omelettes prepared to your taste. The freshness and preparation of all the food we tried were good but as always, gastronomy does not exist in any buffet so don’t expect it here either. Note also that since we were there during COVID, there were few people in the hotel so it’s very likely that their buffet is larger when the hotel has more patrons. Notwithstanding, the few guests in the hotel, the selection of food in the buffet was well diversified, including eggs, sausage, toast, KhaoTom, noodles, pasta, cereal, fruit juices, desserts, etc.
Now, what we really enjoyed was this hotel’s proximity to Khaosan road which allowed us to party late at night and not worry about getting back home on the outskirts of Bangkok and this hotel more than met our expectations.
All in all, we were very pleased with the hotel and we concluded that we could easily recommend this affordable hotel to friends who pass by Bangkok for a short time and would like to enjoy Khaosan road.
