Diamond House

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Well-situated just over Lamphu canal and with friendly and helpful staff, the Diamond House is a good choice for flashpackers who want to be close to the Khao San action without being right in the middle of it.

A garish Chinese shrine that’s attached to the bright orange-and-green seven-storey building make the whole package seem rather kitsch at first glance, but inside things are quite tasteful and very well kept. The ground floor boasts a nicely laid out restaurant/cafe with high-speed internet and reasonably priced fare. The small size makes it easy to strike up a chat with your fellow guests. There’s also a lovely rooftop garden that affords some great views and gets you out of the traffic firing line on the unfortunately busy Samsen Road below. Rooms are well equipped with air-con, hot-water bathrooms, cable TVs, fridges and apparently 24-hour room service. Lack of pool aside, the facilities would put some three-star hotels to shame, and the rooms are decent value for what you get. We could only find two slight drawbacks: standard rooms are fairly small, with twin rooms consisting of a rather odd bunk bed arrangement, and secondly the aforementioned busy road means it’s best to avoid rooms at the front. On the plus side: the deluxe rooms are very well done with large beds on raised wooden platforms to go with bronze basin sinks in the bathrooms, and the strategic location puts both Khao San and Phra Arthit express boat pier within a five-minute walk from your room.
