Good hotel for the moneyPosted Jan 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Good value for money. One step up from staying in a hostel in that you have your own private toilet and shower. Beware there is a renovation going on at the moment (Jan 2014) and the noise/vibration will wake you up as the workmen start work early. 5 mins walk to Khao San Road.

A bit old but good for valuePosted Dec 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed here for 2nights. I was looking for a hotel nearby kaosan road and clean one. It takes about 10 minutes to kaosan road. The room was very big but little bit old. This hotel and Nouvo city hotel is connected. The drawback about this hotel is .. like other lodge around kaosan road, it is not easy to get to hotel. phayathai station is the closest one from Kaosan road. So I had to get off at the station and tried to take tuktuk, which was my mistake, the driver didn't know where the hotel is but was willing to take me. Finally he took me completely wrong place and lied to me that's New world city hotel. It was one of my bad memory during my trip.

Complete dump in good locationPosted Oct 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
When the taxi dropped me off in front of the hotel, I thought "this might not be bad." The lobby area was open and looked modern. Unfortunately, when I told the front desk person that I had booked at the New World City, she advised me that this was the Nouvo City Hotel and that my hotel was connected to it by a small hallway. I walked through the hallway and when I reached the front desk of the New World City Hotel I was really disappointed. The lobby was not well lit and smelled moldy. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. My room was on the 5th floor and the bell boy advised me that renovations were in progress. Unfortunately, my room had not been renovated! It was a complete dump! The head board for the bed was missing but 4 screws left remained in the wall exposed. The table next to the bed looks like it had not been cleaned in a while. The AC struggled to keep the smelly room cool. The bathroom was dimly lit but functional. Overall, if you're not lucky enough to stay in a renovated room, you'll be staying in a crack house room. I've stayed in budget hotels around the world and new not to expect the Hilton. But, Thai hotels take pride in their cleanliness. NOT THIS ONE! I should spent the extra $20US and stayed next door at Nuovo City!

well worh the $Posted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Excellent Internet connection in the rooms. Excellent breakfast. Close to many things of interest. English speaking front desk. Clean rooms. Excellent a.c. don't get scared when you come to the entrance of the hotel. Its very unpretentious. Very safe. Not posh but I stayed here 5 nights and it was comfortable. Tours available on the premises.

close to kao san rd, but far enough away to be anpPosted Jul 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Less than 5 min walk to all San road and even better rambuttri road. However it's much saner than those. Right on the canal. Connected to Nuovo Hotel so they share a lot of amenities. Breakfast was really good. The attached Nuovo Hotel's restaurant, Sara, looked like it catered just to westerners (bland looking, though we didn't eat there so I can't say for sure) so we went across the street to Comfy House and had the best food we've had in our entire month in Thailand!!!

DisappointingPosted Jun 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have stayed here many times, but I was very disappointed this time...I booked a room with either a city view or river view from my comfortable balcony, but what I got was a view of 144 backs of air con machines & a wall. The noise form all those machines doesn't exactly make a person feel comfortable.. The hotel itself & staff are nice though, & the location is ideal for me..I'd still stay there again, but will make sure I get an actual view next time.

Large, clean hotel room with an mini-fridge, but we did have a cockroach in the shower on the first night. The property is close to river ferry and Khao San Road, but far enough away that it was nice and quiet. The air conditioning took a long time (hours) to cool off the whole room, and we could not leave it on while we were out, since you needed the room key to activate it. The breakfast was very nice -- a good assortment of food, coffee tea & juice. The front desk staff was very helpful. It is a non-smoking hotel, but allows smoking on the room balconies. Despite feeling like a budget hotel, they provide bottled water daily, along with in-room safe, robes and slippers.

Huge disappointmentPosted Feb 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Old hotel with paper thin walls letting you hear absolutely everything going on in the hallways. Its also quite a ways out of any public transport so you are forced to rely on taxis or tuk tuks.
Clean and close to river boatPosted Jan 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
Excellent location, a short walk away from river boat and clean and comfortable!
