Occupying a large building that sprawls between Khao San and Trok Mayom, Khaosan Park has emerged as a far more modern and inviting option than its predecessor Nana Plaza Inn.

Guests arrive through a classy white hallway before entering the spacious lobby with shared computers in the corner and a few sofas to lounge on. The exceptionally cheerful and welcoming receptionist on duty when we came by is the sort of person who you’d hope would welcome you to Bangkok. While lacking the style of Rikka Inn, Buddy Lodge or Dang Derm, rooms are similarly comfy and have the added bonus of small balconies, though not much of a view. Reached via a lift, all rooms are equipped with firm beds raised off hardwood floors, bureaus, TVs, small hot-water bathrooms and impressionist prints of what appear to be scenes from a 19th century wedding in France. We’re not sure what makes this a “resort”; there’s no swimming pool or spa and the garden roof terrace doesn’t cut it. Nevertheless, it’s a clean and comfortable option for travellers with a bit of cash, and the smiley receptionist gives it a leg up on the many similarly priced but less friendly options. The hotel’s website hardly functions but rooms can be booked through Agoda.
