What we say: 3.5 stars

Well situated and well appointed — friendly and helpful staff — make this spot a good choice for those who wish to be close to the Khao San action without being right in the middle of it. Not particularly cheap by guesthouse standards, but probably worth the bit extra. The owners have certainly made an effort in terms of decor, efforts to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere and show a laudable attention to detail. (Don't be put off by the odd outside decoration — inside is more tasteful!) Lobby area includes a nicely laid out restaurant/cafe area with high speed internet access and reasonably priced fare and if it's slightly on the small side that does mean you won't be able to avoid meeting your fellow guests which can be a plus certainly for single travellers. There's also a very nice little roof garden which affords some great views and get's you out of the traffic firing line on the unfortunately busy Samsen Road below. Rooms are also well set up with air-con, en-suite bathrooms, cable TV, minibar, free tea/coffee facilities (deluxe only), and 24 hour room service (though we didn't test that part!) All in all, lack of pool aside, facilities that would put some neighbourhood 3* hotels to shame. (Note larger suite rooms for families) A 5 minute walk from Khao San Road and handy for the river we could only find two slight drawbacks: standard rooms are pretty small so twin rooms consist of a rather odd bunk bed arrangement — not to everyone's taste — and secondly being on the aforementioned busy road it's best to avoid rooms at the front. Otherwise go for it — particularly single travellers! Book online for heavily discounted rates.
