Liked: Very good breakfast, helpful and competent staff

Disliked: Little bit far from the center of the city, getting there by public transport from the Hua Lamphong Railway Station is not quite simple, it is not properly described. However, once you learn it is not difficult . Bus No.53, but it is a little bit tricky!

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful, the woman who was there most of the time didn't speak any English, but communication with her was still very easy. The rooms were very clean, the showers and toilet were also very clean. The location was brilliant - about a 15-20 minute walk into Khaosan Road, also a very short walk to restaurants, bars, supermarkets and tourist offices. The breakfast was very nice, my sister was vegetarian and they understood and gave her extra egg instead.

Disliked: The bed was pretty uncomfy

Liked: Great place, very very clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast and great staff. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Disliked: The walls and floors are super thin so you can hear everything from the connecting walls, but a pair of ear plugs were enough to secure a good night sleep.

Liked: Good atmosphere with friendly staff. Good value for money with breakfast included and complementary bottled water. Free wifi and printing at 10b. Air con in room was good and breeze from outside the meshed windows was nice and meant there was no insects in the room. Bathrooms were very clean and showers were fine. Nice relaxing cool shady area for eating breakfast or just relaxing. Short walk to 7 11 and 10 min walk to river ferry. Receptionist was able to arrange a taxi to pick us up to take us to airport for 150baht each.

Disliked: Nothing to fault really, other than the sign for hotel could be better lit in order to find it easier at night.

Liked: The staff bend over bakwards to help you enjoy your stay. They advise you of where to go and not believe the Tuk Tuk drivers when they say the Grand Palace is closed for the day!! The toilet failities were not far from my room so didn't have problems during the night when I needed to go. There were other like minded travellers staying at Khaosan Baan Thai and it was nice to chat to them over breakfast.

Disliked: Unfortunatley, at the moment (Nov 2013) they are building a house next door so there are very loud noises throughout the day of metal grinding and banging. Also, there are very thin walls and noise travels easily but when I stayed the other guests were very quiet.

Liked: A quaint old building in a quiet residential area just a fifteen minutes stroll from all the "action" and madness of khaosan road areas.Friendly staff and a good mix of travellers.Facilites such as toilets/bathrooms a little basic but super clean so that made up for a lot.

Disliked: A little overpriced in comparison to competitors in the area.No comfortable seating areas,all hard bench type of seating,even by t.v.area and not enough for amount of guests either.
