Sam Sen Sam Place

Our rating:

Named after the leafy side street where it’s located, Sam Sen Sam Place was one of the first Khao San area guesthouses to go with a classic Thai-style boutique design that’s very well done well.

The original century-old wooden house was revamped with a charming blend of sky blue, pastel pink and teal paint to go with dark timber floors and tall, thin windows with soft cotton drapes. Rooms vary widely and aim to please everyone from solo budget travellers to flashpacking couples. Relying on immaculate shared bathroom facilities, the standard rooms are tiny with one window and room only to sleep. The deluxe bags you more space, a TV, fridge and large private bathroom, while the "Special President" suite boasts a large balcony, several windows and seating areas with mother-of-pearl inlaid furniture. Common areas include a small traveller’s library, communal computers, sitting area and small but soothing garden cafe. Set about two thirds of the way down Samsen Soi 3 near the river and a couple of relaxing cafes, you’re guaranteed a good night’s sleep. Stays of four nights or more get an automatic discount. Staff are friendly even if they grumbled a little about showing us a room when we last stopped by anonymously. Overall this remains an excellent quiet option that places you within a 10-minute walk of Khao San Road.
