What we say: 3.5 stars

New Merry V is clean, right down to its share bathrooms. It's also very conveniently located for the Chao Phraya River Express ferries and for the strip of excellent bars and restaurants on Phra Athit Rd. There are a bunch of different styles of rooms to select from in the older front building or the newer back building. Up front, rooms are miniscule and decoration-free with super-firm army style cots — not unlike immaculate jail cells. Rooms in the back are newer but still feel quite old, particularly the bedding, but have TV's, air-con and are away from the busy road. The big minus (if you have a street front room) is the noise from the street in the mornings. Their in-house restaurant has Thai and western food. This is popular and fills up fast — especially the cheapest rooms, if full try Peachy or Phra Athit Mansion, two equally cheap, but more rundown properties along the same stretch of road.
