Rikka Inn

Affordable comfort on Khao San

What we say: 4 stars

Rikka's rooms are a lot snazzier and comfier than your typical Khao San guesthouse -- and rates are reasonable given the generous creature comforts. Clean and modern rooms come in a few different sizes, all with quality beds, small TVs, mini-fridges, safes, air-con, desks and hot-water showers in bathrooms that are compact in the cheaper rooms. Colourful Bangkok photo collages cover the orange and white walls; black-and-white Chao Phraya River scenes are tasteful, but larger-than-life street food photos will probably make you hungry, or maybe repulsed if you’re hung over. The value would be reasonable even if you were only paying for the rooms, so the addition of a small rooftop swimming pool that catches the full fury of Bangkok’s midday sun is a welcome surprise. Back at ground level, Rikka is located right on Khao San’s eastern half, next to Buddy Lodge, and some street noise should be expected during prime partying hours. Staff is often distracted but was friendly enough on our most recent visit. Rikka is a popular spot and there’s little chance of scoring a room as a walk-in during high season. If it’s full, Khao San Park Resort is a good alternative nearby.
