Tucked down a quiet alley near Phra Sumen Fort and an easy stroll from Khao San Road, Adamaz House delivers clean and well-equipped rooms for non-fussy flashpackers who don’t require an on-site bar and restaurant.

You’ll find Adamaz’s sleek but out-of-place facade after wandering past napping cats down a cramped alley. The lobby reminds us of a midrange Chinese karaoke bar, with glossy tile floors, high ceilings, a few roundtables and a Katy Perry video playing on a widescreen TV. But this is not a bar and the Muslim owners prefer that guests refrain from bringing alcohol into the building.

If you’re still with us, climb the stairs to find small rooms packed with extras like safe, fridge, TV, table, air-con and hot water in bathrooms with showers set up behind glass doors. A window with shade between shower and bedroom is an odd touch. You also get some swirly Thai-style art and a glass door opening to a tiny balcony. While most rooms are designed for pairs, groups can settle into a quad with two bunk beds.

Up on the roof are a couple of quirky “suites” that are essentially wooden bungalows placed atop the six-floor building (again, there’s no lift). We like the floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the surrounding neighbourhood in these, but not the lack of in-room tables and bathrooms that require stepping briefly outside, though fences do ensure privacy. We’d also anticipate problems with the free WiFi on the higher floors.

Rates include complimentary juice and toast in the lobby, and the family staffers have always been friendly to us. They do however speak minimal English and this is probably not a good choice if you’ll need a lot of advice and assistance; in that case you might consider Sam Sen Sam Place or Tara Place.

Apart from the tables in the lobby and a few more seats on a slender terrace out front, there’s no place at Adamaz to relax and chat up other travellers. Also keep in mind that cars cannot drive directly to the guesthouse due to scant space in the alley. Just across Phra Sumen Road, Fortville Guesthouse has better common areas but less-inviting rooms for more cash. At Adamaz we were offered walk-in rates that were around 100 baht cheaper than online rates.

To find Adamaz, look for the nameless alley marked by a gem shop of the same name and a sign for the guesthouse around 200 metres east of Phra Sumen Fort. It’s just west of Soi Kai Chae, which is home to Apple Guesthouse if you’re after a cheaper room. Check out New Siam II and Villa Cha-Cha for a less-modern room at similar rates to go with additions like swimming pool and restaurant.
