O Bangkok

Our rating:

Located on the bend near the back end of Soi Rambutri, O Bangkok gets it done with clean rooms that have zero character and a staff that’s about as personable as a concrete wall.

If you don’t mind the lack of a smile (also: no Thai people allowed here), the rooms are reasonable. Some come with large windows to brighten your day, and all are equipped with both air-con and ceiling fans; save 37 baht (woohoo!) by requesting that the former be disabled. Apart from the cooling elements and basic hot-water bathrooms, all rooms come with nothing more than foam beds on cool tile floors. The place had been given a fresh coat of paint since our last visit and was looking fairly sharp. Upper floor rooms open on to airy hallways overlooking Wat Chana Songkhram, though the windows are too small to let in much of a view. More than two travellers can stay in any room for an extra 100 baht per head. The ground-floor common area is sparsely furnished with a few wooden tables and a shared computer station. We found that WiFi worked okay in the lobby, but not upstairs. Neighbouring Baan Sabai is a similar option with cheaper/darker rooms and a staff that can be surly as well as impersonal.
