good location, pleasent staff. difficulty to switch on/off light in the room.
Not much to be honest. The air con was very poor.The sheets felt damp.The view was of a wall.The staff tried to get commission for setting us up with a tailor when it was us who were asking where it was.The breakfast was appalling.
The Hotel is too noisy because of the Mulligan's pub which is owns by the same owner of Buddy !!! Don't pay the normal price, you would feel ripped off and don't choose the rooms which are oriented to Mulligan'S. In addition, the breakfast is not good.
The location,in center of Koh San Road, the swimming pool on the roof, the breakfast is excellent, wifi access only 60baht per hour check out at noon unless pay half room fee to check out at 19.00 - very expensive
Rooms and Pool are nice. Breakfast was ok. Hotel is very loud - if you want to sleep during the night it is not the best choice. Regular prices are very high (3,500 Baht) - and the hotel would not be worth this amount of money. Staff was not very friendly - no possibility of "late" checkout (1 pm), no help with the luggage when arriving, everything very stiff and no flexibility.
The sheets on the beds were stained, as were the towels. Staff at the front desk were not friendly at all.
Our room (deluxe) was clean, our balcony was large with well tended plants, the bathroom was small but adequate. There was some noise from one of the hotel bars but no noise from the street. The breakfast was eccellent. Shame about the Macdonalds in the foyer! Some noise late at night from one of the hotel bars. The taxi driver booked for us by the hotel to take us to the airport did not use the meter then charged us 500baht!
Walking distance to tourist attractions and the river with great street food right at your door. Good pool to relax by. Rooms have good sound proofing- Very little noise considering the location on Khao San Road and the night club located on the ground floor. Bed very lumpy
Roof top pool is very good Situated in an exciting part of Bangkok
Great location right on Khao San rd,close to temples and markets. Easy to use river boats to catch the BTS. Lots of cheap eats in this area. Nothing
the staff was very friendly. the cleanness of room. the swimming pool on the roof.
Great location, pool on the roof and good service from staff.
The pool has a great view and offers a wide range of drinks the pool was a bit dirty, my room was right outside of construction, very basic, no thrills, no windows.
I loved the location. I would definitely stay in that area. Close by all great parties and shopping. .. They charged me for pillow cases and sheets after they took my deposit. Pissed me off
I didn't like the room, no hairdryer, old linen and towels, loudy air conditioner, reception wasn't friendly nor helpfull, no internet connection, my room was not cleaned during my stay. Definitely will never stay again or recommend to anybody as well.
I had a really good time staying at Rikka Inn. Great staffs & Great value. Nothing!
clean I checked in about 10:30pm on 27/8/2010, nextday request to check out 1 hr late at 1pm also not allowed- not flexible
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was close to the touristy places like grand palace, Buddha statues, and temples. I was unaware that the location would be hippy central for all the white people suffering their post-grad life crises. Lots of weathered westerners trying to look like they wished they looked in college. Weird place. Far from the heart of Bangkok, and far from the normal Thai people, and far from the train system. Not good if you are trying to get real Thai experience. Good if you want to be surrounded by white Europeans with dreads and broken dreams.
Front desk and tour sales staff were awesome!! The location was great, the breakfast decent and the pool was ok. We moved rooms twice. Once because someone smoke before us and second because we woke up to red ants on us.
Great place to stay in the Bangkok's old town. Perfect location on Khao San Road which very near The Grand Palace. Compact room with enough facilities. Free internet computers at the lobby and also free wifi in the room. Really nice swimming pool. Great value overall.
We arrived late and staff were extremely accommodating. Our room was not large, but not too small, very clean and had lovely decoration/artwork as well as a fridge, excellent air con, en suite shower/bathroom and fresh cold water every day. Cleaning is notified as 'on request' -we didn't ask for this but our Roo was still cleaned and the bed turned down anyway. The reviews we read on here and tripadvisor had us worried, but the hotel couldn't have been better. The pool and communal areas are lovely, and the location perfect for what we wanted, right in the heart of khao San road. Excellent value for money. The key deposit of 1000baht is a bit of a pain at tue end of a long trip, we kind of needed the cash, but it was returned without question on checkout and was ideal to pay for taxi/airport food etc so not a massive problem. The pool is only open 1000-1800 which is a shame but probably is the reason it is so clean and doesn't cause any noise problems. Obviously at night silence is not possible owing to the location in the middle of party street Bangkok but the air con covers the window being shut and it is entirely bearable.
Very nice budget hotel, perfect location, clean and new, awesome swimming pool on the rooftop
Very good central location, good value for money - room size, swimming pool, We have arrived at 6.00 am and they let us check in and go the room straight away which was great after a whole night of travelling! The room was located just opposite the lift so it was noisy sometimes
Hotel was affordable, clean, had a pool and in a great location for those wanting to stay in the Khao San area. Hotel was noisy at night due to nightlife in Khao San (even though I was in a room at the back of the hotel). 1000 Baht cash deposit irritating.
The hotel is ok, swiming pool is also ok. The only problem is the noise, but thats what you get on Kaosan Road. Rooms are a bit small (even the top one)
Shopping Here is very poor. And Khao San Rd is very noisy. You couldn't sleep if you stay here.
hotel is right in the thick of tourist bangkok,a nice hotel for a couple of nights!!
Nice roof top pool can get overcrowded so pop your towels down early but in the heart of Khaosan Road so couldnt ask for a better placed hotel.
Great location - you are bang in the middle of the Khaosan Road - which is mental with street sellers of every kind. Rooms are nicely decorated and have a flat screen tv & dvd player. No free wi-fi but you can buy minutes for a decent price - or go to a restaurant with free wi fi. Additional bed is a dodgy camping bed that is not overly sturdy! Can be noisy as you are in such a central location but air con is noisier so drowns it out!
It was quiet, even though it's right on Khaosan Road. It was a little dated, but good for the price. However, they were advertising a lower price than I booked on booking.com for!
Helpful check in staff. Clean and tidy. Rooftop pool. Great location. 7-11 next door. Had to get a more expensive room than hoped for due to availability. No breakfast, pool is small and cold with limited loungers. tv is small and fixed to the top corner of the room.
Prime location of the hotel, right in the heart of Khaosan Road. Also a 7-11 store is next door as well as a pharmacy and travel agent. The place is filthy, my room had ants crawling everywhere, on the floor and on the walls in the bathroom. Told reception which sent a cleaner who seemed to have a look and do nothing. Also my room had not been cleaned for 3 days.
Love the Khao San Palace...central location...plus TV, Cable and very clean rooms make this a good choice for anyone seeking to experience Khao San Road area... Music from area bars could barely be heard at night...but only slightly...
The location isn't bad if your young and wanting to drink/ party. Khao San road is literally right outside the hotel and there's always a happy hour going on and tons of restaurants. Bed was as hard as a rock. I didn't get one good nights sleep the entire time I was there. Front desk tried swindling me when I checked in, arguing that I didn't pay for my stay and that I needed to even though I had a confirmed email saying it was paid for in full. Room smelled of stale smoke. Even the towels. Wifi continuously booted us off and the password is only good for an hour or two max, so we had to continue going downstairs to grab a new one. Ladies at front desk weren't helpful at all, with any questions that we had. I wouldn't stay here again.
Nothing Very unpolite staff,nasty attitude,ugly room,very noisy,noise from inside and outside,poor towels.
nice, room, clean, swimmingpool is very nice
It is very noisy until 2.30 am every night, music from different places on the street reaches you.
The air conditioner did not work for the three nights we stayed and the staff were not prepared to compensate us for the inconveniance. The stay here was very uncomfortable and we would not recommend this place to our friends.
Great location if you like to party. You can hear music and people all night long.
Good location right on the khaosan road. Large room, very clean, acceptable decorated, hard mattress (which we loved). On the downsize: no mosquitos net & no window. Poor breakfast (just omelette/scrambled eggs, some butter& 2 slices of bred, American coffee& some fruits). Still, you do not starve. All in all, good value for money. Friendly staff (they served us the breakfast 40 min prior to the normal opening hours as we had a morning flight to catch. Lack of window & mosquitos net. The noise & the loud music could be heard from the road till late in the night.
me: breakfast my girlfriend: comfortable room for good price shover and toilet was in the same plase without any distance in the same small room view from my window
Great staff, great location. Would definitely stay here again.
It is a ood location for tourist wishing to be nearby the main attractions of Bangkok Hotel is not good value for money, no taxi driver did not know where it is. Other hotels offered much more services (wi fi , gym, pool) breakfast was atrocious, just fruit and toast and jam .
Rooms reasonably sized and clean. No frills. Staff friendly. Location, Not one to stay at on your own. Felt a very unsafe part of town. But very short walk to better areas and all major tourist attractions.
the very clean room and bathroom there is no fridge in the room
great staff, great rooms for the price breakfast selection was limited
Close to Grand palace No hot water and shower machine don't work well.
Staff was very kind
The locations mach with my expectations that was stay walk distance from Grand Palace and so on. The breakfast ... should be better and the bath room (cold water and toalet under the shower).
good bed. things that kills you: street noise; glutchy hot tub, tiny bathrooms, poor breakfast and poor knowledge of english.
