Great place. Good location. Bit noisy but it’s the location.
The Ibis Styles is a nice hotel with good, clean rooms and a very comfy bed. Could do with some drawers for t-shirts, swimwear, underwear, etc - there is only a wardrobe. The pool is fine, although a little on the small side. Staff are very friendly and helpful. This is the second time we have stayed ...
Really enjoyed our holiday staff are faultless location was perfect , a bit of a journey from the airport but it was worth it
Property was nicer than expected. Location is not near BTS, but grab cars are inexpensive so it was not necessary
Upgraded from 2 standard canal wing rooms to 1 deluxe family room for 3 people. Paid additional 500 baht, but family room only slightly bigger than standard room and no other improvement for deluxe roim over standard room. Should have left booking as it was and saved my money. Standard of hotel and ...
Great place to stay but no room service provided even we buzzed in
Best asset is that it is quite close to the main attractions, walking distance... Big hotel, with so many people for buffet, they get big groups, it gets very busy and noisy. Only one tiny elevator !!
Very good hotel with very good staff one in particular walked us out and showed us to where we wanted to go. The hotel room was a little bit old fashioned BUT very clean and you could tell it was a high quality when new. Bed was very comfortable although the air con was a bit hit and miss. Seemed ...
The Royal Princess exceeded my expectations for the price. Staff and accomodations were great. The pool was never overly busy and the bar always served fabulous drinks. The only downside was the Mikado restaurant sushi price and quality. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for ...
Among Bangkok’s more intriguing tourist hotspots is the Old Town Khao San district. Situated close to the Grand Palace area, this district is one of the world’s most famous ‘backpacker havens’. Plenty of cheap accommodation, restaurants, and cafés are found along the popular kilometre-long street, Khao San Road. The surrounding Old Town, with its historic shophouses and retro venues, provides a unique side to Bangkok that tourists too often miss.Don’t Miss
A large range of attractions and entertaining things to do are offered in and around the Old Town Khao San area.
There is no better way to spend a lazy afternoon or evening than exploring the Khao San and Soi Rambuttri lanes. Visitors will love the laid-back culture and friendly atmosphere, not to mention the inexpensive dining options and bargain shopping on display too. It is not hard to ‘get lost’ in the bustling charm of this place.
Among the area’s most iconic landmarks is the Phra Sumen Fort, which is located beside Santichaiprakan Park. The fort is one of the last true strongholds from the bygone era, and its heritage certainly helps attract visitors. These spots are also popular for escaping the concrete jungle, and getting some shade overhead too.
Tourists should not miss a boat ride on the Chao Phraya. Phra Atit Pier is the most famous ferry landing in the Old Town district. Not only does it provide quick access from downtown Bangkok, it also gives tourists an opportunity to see the Old Town area from the water.Restaurants and Bars
Tourists won’t find many glamorous restaurants in this district. Nevertheless, there is still an incredibly popular culinary culture here. Many Old Town shophouses now share the streets with trendy cafés and restaurants. Of course, traditional-style noodle houses still exist throughout the area. For even more menu variety, tourists can head to Khao San Road, where Western-style cafés, Thai street stalls and food vendors pack the street. The bars and cafés are also popular places to just sit, drink, socialise, and even people watch.Shopping
Most of the shopping in this district is cheap and simple. Due to the high number of backpackers, shops generally cater for this market, selling things like clothes, accessories, bags, and souvenir magnet. Some of the shops are located in the local houses, while others are simple vendors spread along the pavements.
