[Hotel Review] Sawasdee Krungthep Inn (Bangkok, Thailand)

Sawasdee hotel chain has four premises located in the vicinity of backpackers’ heaven in Bangkok. Via Asia Rooms users can make reservation at bargain price. Sawasdee Krungthep Inn is about 20 minute’s tuk tuk ride from Hua Lam Phong train station.

It is located at Soi Rambutri, Phanakorn; an area full of budget accommodations, café and restaurants and, most importantly, numerous tour & travel agent services. This budget hotel is slightly at the end of the street, which is near to the shortcut way heading to Khao San Road as well as to the Grand Palace (about 10 minute’s walk).

The hotel provides clean and comfortable room for guests including bed, towels, and toiletries and in some package may include breakfast. Wireless internet is complimentary but if your room is located on second floor and above or your room is at the end of the walkway, you may not be able to catch the signal. Users can always bring down their laptop to the lobby to enjoy faster WIFI connection. Those who do not have any laptop, computers with internet services and printer are available for use.

There is also a tour desk at the lobby that provides booking and reservation services for variety of tour or/and travel arrangements. As the hotel is located at the end of the street, you can expect reasonable amount of quietness when you are asleep in room. At the reception counter, you can also leave your valuables for safekeeping in locked locker at no charge. It is highly advisable not to leave your valuables in the room as the area is so busy with people. The hotel even put up a notice at the room door advising guest to use extra locks when you are asleep in room.

The only minus point for this hotel is the restaurant is located in another Sawasdee hotel, which is about 3 minutes walk from this hotel building. If you are worried of not having a place to eat, rest assured that you will not be starving. There are huge selections of café and restaurant to choose the moment you walk out the hotel’s entrance.

This is highly recommended for backpacker, especially single travelers. 
My personal rating: 4 stars
