    Superb

    Very friendly and helpful staff at front desk. We stayed on fifth floor in quiet room, near the lovely rooftop swimming pool. Nice and clean room. Use of internet (Wifi in room) was free of charge. Buffet breakfast (in downstairs Irish Pub) was fantastic (Thai and "Western" food).

    Temperature of airconditioning could not be adjusted (or we could not find out how to make it work) and was too cold.

    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.

    Superb

    Spotless hotel, Perfect if you want to spend an extra few quid for abreally nice room for the night. Expensive compared to other shops on the khao San but it a nice hotel.

    Lost my room key and had to pay 200 bat for a new one. Joke shop as it's just a key card, but I wasn't bothered arguing. Breakfast is middle of the road.

    Exceptional

    Excellent location without the noise. The room was in good condition and the coconut cocktails by the pool was a great way to end a day.

    There is no restaurant and the pool/bar closes early although many places to eat and drink are just downstairs!It would be good if the hotel offered an airport pick up service.

    Good

    Location on Khao San Road was central and very good if you don't mind the background noise! Nice little rooftop pool good to get rid of daytime heat! Muay Thai gym with professional trainers and the gym wasn't too bad!

    Very good

    Location, roof swimming pool , decor of the rooms and excellent buffet breakfast in irish pub.

    Restricted access after 4 pm. It has seen better days , shame it has not been better maintained. Little things, such as towels at the pool area have long passed their sale by date. This what makes a difference between rating and because of that I would give it a 2 star rather than 3 star rating. Fixing it is not expensive and could make the hotel a charming oasis!

    Good

    The room was large and very clean and an excellent price. The pool was great and not too busy - we had it all to ourselves both days we swam. Good location as we could walk to the Grand Palace and some other tourist spots. Plenty of cheap and delicious food in the area as well.

    I did not realise when booking that there is a nightclub with karaoke until 3am right above the hotel. This wasn't terrible but I wish I had known and I have to say it's the one thing I didn't like about the hotel.

    Exceptional

    Great hotel overall. Good location, right on Khaosan, but also quiet and removed. Had no issues with noise or sleeping, which has been a problem@other Khaosan hotels. Liked the hardwood floors and antique lamps/decorations. Tastefully decorated, and cooler than most hotels in the area.

    The elevator doors open up at the middle of the stairs. So you always have to walk a half of flight of stairs (up or down), no matter where you get out. Not a big complaint, but kind of annoying. And would be nice if wifi was the just get a password and get free access type. Vs the login / username / password type. But they did give free 5hr access to the wifi (they used to charge, so this is a nice change). But overall this is a great hotel, prob the best on Khaosan (but also one of the most expensive).

    Good

    It was a nightmare experience... First time to stay in Khaosan but had unpleasant experience with the hotel. Never will I stay again in this hotel.

    The staff had budget experience and knowledge of Customer Service.. I had a late check in but when I arrived around 6 am. The reception told me I was too early for check in without even trying to review my booking. I requested a double bed (kingsize or queensize) but was given twin bed.. I had breakfast at 7Am only to be disappointed again. The poor service happen again. I was not included on the list with breakfast. It was really forgettable day at Khaosan....The staff should be trained to be polite and accomodating.You can feel discrimination with the Aseans... They may have forgotten that they are also one...

    Location excellent.

    Rooms could do with being a bit more modern, expensive for quality of room you get. I also bought a suit in Buddy Tailor. I was told suit jacket would not be ready when I left and would be posted to me. I agreed to believe them as yet told me they were part of hotel group. I emailed them to query current status with suit jacket but got no reply. If this jacket does not arrive to good quality, I will be expressing my disgust on Booked.net and Booked.net and any other forums I can find with hotel and suit tailors. I would appreciate a response from tailors.

    Superb

    Location is awesome right on Khao San rd Great street food stores, shopping and night life outside front door. Walking distance to grand palace, wat po and wat arun. Less 100b in taxi to Sukhmvit. Decent gym. Swimming pool on the roof

    Was all good but I think you can find better value for money accommodation if you wanted

    The room was nice and they had HBO which was quite good as we had to wait quite a while for the shower to be fixed. There is a swimming pool but you can only go once per night you are staying

    - In 2 days/2nights we had to call 3 times for the shower to be fixed (no hot water). The toilet was leaking and the hair dryer was broken - Awfully noisy - Not worth the price - Mixed feedback about the staff, some really helpful, some almost rude
