D&D Inn

A Khao San favourite

What we say: 3.5 stars

Flashpacker factory the D&D Inn is quite reasonable value for good, clean rooms and professional staff in the middle of the Khao San Road action. The “Inn” has proven so popular over the years that owners gobbled up a huge area across the street and created the similar but slightly more expensive Dang Derm in 2010. Having undergone renovations itself in 2012, D&D should suffice for most.

D&D is accessed from Khao San via a wide corridor where you can pick up tailored clothes, souvenirs and tour bookings. The continuation of touts straight up to your hotel’s front door is a little annoying, but it provides a buffer between most rooms and the formidable late-night street noise. We often receive reports of mixed service and difficulty in making reservations, though to be fair, we’d imagine the staff here have to put up with a lot.

The place is truly cavernous, with seven floors set around an open inner section that provides minimal natural light for those rooms that face it. Rooms can be musty until you let the air-con run for a while. Some have small balconies to let in fresh air, though it’s wise to request one away from the street if you’re not up for late-night partying. The hotel has a lift and all rooms require a key-card for entry.

Despite a recent 100 baht increase in all rates, well-kept standard rooms still offer reasonable value thanks to a fair amount of space, comfortable beds and TVs — just don’t expect much character. Superiors have been revamped with sleek dark wood furnishings and nifty rattan decor on forest green or bright yellow walls. Deluxe editions bag you more space and a mini-fridge. All but standard bathrooms come with surprisingly stylish basin sinks and separated showers. Every room is air-conditioned.

A lively rooftop swimming pool area boasts some commanding Grand Palace views along with a poolside bar and billiards table. Near the pool is a massage area set in a traditional Thai sala and a couple of sunbathing platforms. The rooftop fills up with beer-swilling travellers on sunny days, so don’t expect a tranquil setting for that massage. On the other hand, D&D’s rooftop is one of the best spots on Khao San to meet, mix and splash.

Other facilities include 24-hour room service, laundry, safety box at reception, luggage room, beauty salon, internet cafe and concierge service. Out the back of the hotel is a pleasant though small Thai garden restaurant and a water feature containing the biggest carp we’ve ever seen, along with a back entrance to the dark and narrow alley that runs parallel to Khao San.

If you’re looking for a newer property with similar features, both the Rikka Inn and Sleep WithInn are good options, while Buddy Lodge is a solid upgrade if you have a bit more cash to flash.
