Perfect location! Close to Khaosan Rd but far enough to still be quiet at night. Harder for solo traveller to meet other travellers, very large hotel.
Stained sheets, hair in drain and on floor, unfriendly staff at check-in, pool only open 8-6 when we would have wanted to use it after 6
easy access to everything . we will be staying again on way back
Location and that it was clean en cheap! Tha staff is terrible! Unfriendly and this in Thailand, one of the most friendliest country in the world! Most of them are unwilling to help and speak poorly english. But it is cheap and clean and that is more important.
swimmingpool; international lelevision; incheck and outcheck takes too much time
location is good, quick check in and check out, cleanliness of room, quiet night air conditioning didn't work
The roof-top pool was nice, decent breakfast buffet. The staff was very unfriendly and rude, not helpful at all. Part of the hotel does not have elevator service. The first room they tried to stick me in was a 3rd floor noisy walk-up. The room looked old and unkept. I tried to get another room but the receptionist claimed all rooms were booked, (she was not professional at all). I decided I wanted my money back, but she said I had to pay for one full night if I canceled. I asked to speak to the manager who wasn't there. She called the manager and I told her I wasn't happy with the current situation. They finally found a small pint size room on the 5th floor with an elevator, but I still found the room to be old and tired looking (AC didn't work properly). I stayed the night and put up with lots of noise due to the bad acoustics in the hallway, and bathrooms that vent into the hallway which cause more noise, stink, and humidity. (I didn't get any type of compensation for moving into a smaller 1/4 of the size room) The next morning (2nd night) they moved me into a large room on the other side of the building, which I found clean. AC, TV worked fine. Unfortunately again the hallways were very noisy, other guests were loud. I would skip this place if your looking for a good nights sleep. Your definitely not going to get it unless you drink a case of beer. Cheers!
the place was very clean for the four days we stayed. The room did not get cleaned during this time but i'm sure if we asked for new sheets it would have been provided. Ignore other comments that toilet roll and fresh towels can't be found, simply ask nicely at reception. The pool is a very big bonus and it was nice not to be staying on Khao San Road.
Location and convenience of nearby facilities The staff weren't as friendly as I remember them being from last time (Summer 2007)
Friendly helpful staff and clean passages and rooms. Great pillows! None
It was quite comfortable to stay this hotel. No luxury but you can just relax. The room was quite tidy and clean. If you adjust water level you can have hot shower. Good value for money. After you check out you can leave your baggage at storage room with guy standing outside for 20THB /baggage/day,up to 3 month. Reception is always busy with guest arriving and leaving all day long. Plaza has lots of Indian owned shops and they are standing outside all day long and watching you walking past or tried to catch you as a customer.
Staff wasn't pleasant
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.
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.
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 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
Roof top pool is very good Situated in an exciting part of Bangkok
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
good location, pleasent staff. difficulty to switch on/off light in the room.
The sheets on the beds were stained, as were the towels. Staff at the front desk were not friendly at all.
the staff was very friendly. the cleanness of room. the swimming pool on the roof.
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
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!
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
Great location, pool on the roof and good service from staff.
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.
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.
None Claustrophobic. No outlook from rooms. Highly overpriced. My opinion based on staying in similiar priced hotels in Bangkok and other se countries. Probably by a factor of 2
Sourire@Rattanakosin Island is an nice,quiet Isle whithin the busy Town of Bangkok, where your happy to be from time to time. Its a nice friendly place where you can relax. Its also very clean and the staff is extreamly friendly. I will go there again the next stopover in Bangkok. Because ist's locatet not at a main road its not easy to find. Once i was searging for about half an hour until i found it.
Everything was great during our stay at the Sourire@Rattonakosin Island Hotel. The Staff was so friendly and warm. They were so helpful with touring tips and ideas. The breakfast was delicious. Also, the massage room was beautiful and a great Thai massage. I will definitely be back.
Great room. Beautiful wooden floors. Staff is very friendly and helpfull.
I would like to mention that the hospitality and candor of the hostess was exceptional. We were treated with fruits and milk the moment we were so very tired from our long trip. She also guided us to anything we asked around the city with thoughtfulness and precision.
Hotel staff, Suree is a dedicated person to her guests; she speaks fluent English and knows very well her country and particularly Bangkok. I also appreciated the quality of fresh fruits at breakfast. Very quiet 'oasis' close to the old city. Preferable to print a map for taxi driver. If I return to BKK, no doubt I will stay again in this guesthouse. Superior room a bit small (I would rate standard instead of Superior), shower as well, but normal in Bangkok for this type of guesthouse. Much more space in a Deluxe one.
Good location - close to the center but quiet. Very clean. Owner very helpful with information about seighseeing. Small bathroom but you can get over it. Breakfast quite poor - eggs every day. On the day of leaving I ordered the taxi for 5 pm, and we were waiting for 30 mins as were not told that we were waiting for another couple (if we knew that we'd have walked to the street and got a taxi there).
The hotelstaff were very friendly. Good location, clean rooms and good food.
Beautiful and clean rooms, great service and very helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious and the environment peaceful. A peaceful and quiet island in a busy city. Great location for a very good price.
quiet and conveniental location; comfortable bed; considerate boss and warm reception. The bath room is too small. If you use WIFI in the room, you must open the door or sit close to the door. It is better to serve sugar bag instead of sugar bowl because I found ants in the sugar bowl in the canteen.
nothing If you like noise, you can stay here, if you like a small room, you can stay here if you prefer dirty beds, you can stay here. High price, low value hotel, 2-star motel even better than they are.
Location Hotel facility and room are only 3 star rated
Cool style, lots of food options and rooftop pool. Khao San road is too busy, the road was very noisy and the doors were thin.
Boutique hotel in a great location. Locked luggage check was very nice feature.
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.
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
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
Very nice budget hotel, perfect location, clean and new, awesome swimming pool on the rooftop
Shopping Here is very poor. And Khao San Rd is very noisy. You couldn't sleep if you stay here.
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.
hotel is right in the thick of tourist bangkok,a nice hotel for a couple of nights!!
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)
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.
I had a really good time staying at Rikka Inn. Great staffs & Great value. Nothing!
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.
