Right in the middle of eastern Soi Rambutri and very close to Khao San, Sleep WithInn aims for youthful flashpackers who want to be in the middle of the action.
The so-called "boutique" decor includes a lot of dark gold, orange and black Asian-inspired art along with dark wood and large mirrors that attempt to make the 12-square-metre standard rooms feel bigger than they are. With only one tiny window, those rooms are so small that you'll have trouble finding a place to put your pack. Bathrooms are squeezed off to the side of the rooms, strangely behind a pane of sliding clear glass with a curtain for privacy. Even the pricier rooms are on the small side, though the best have leather sofas and large windows with some views of the surrounding area. All rooms are clean and equipped with air-con, soft beds, LCD TVs and mini-fridges. A narrow pool is a welcome addition on the rooftop, and there is a lift to get there. The staff members that we met were laid back and ready to joke around at first, but a bit lazy when it came to showing us around. Some reports have complained of loud music at a neighbouring bar until 2:00 in the morning. At time of writing they were still charging for WiFi, which is completely ridiculous.
