Mango Lagoon Place

Decent view, quiet atmosphere

What we say: 3.5 stars

Rates at Mango Lagoon dropped slightly since our last visit -- a good sign that the place could use some upgrades. The pale yellow six-storey building sits just behind an atmospheric wood-floored courtyard restaurant shaded by tall reaching palms and punctuated by a goldfish pond. Reached by stairs next to the reception desk where a blase woman greeted us, rooms are accessed by open-air hallways that afford good views over the temple rooftops of Wat Chana Songkhram. Though not poorly kept, rooms have seen better days. The wall-to-wall carpeting, cheap furniture and linens all appeared worn, scuffed and chipped. Interiors are plenty spacious, with TVs, air-con and basic hot-water bathrooms coming standard. Suites are slightly larger than standards and have the advantage of round tables set beside windows with views, though the teeny balconies are fully occupied by air-con units. Similarly priced superior rooms at Lamphu House and either New Siam II or New Siam Palace View are a full measure better, but Mango Lagoon is still a solid backup plan. It’s located just south of Soi Chana Songkhram on a less-travelled corner of Soi Rambutri, meaning that rooms should stay fairly quiet. We’ve seen a few online reports of thefts taking place here; don’t leave valuable unattended in your room (good advice for any guesthouse that doesn’t have in-room safes).
