The hotel itself was excellent. The staff was very friendly and spoke good english. The rooms were very clean. Breakfast was included and was the best meal of our day. Location wise - not too great. There's not a lot of food vendors or restaurant nearby (you'd have to walk 10-15 minutes to find good food). We took tuk-tuks and taxi's everywhere.
We stayed here several nights while exploring Bangkok. The hotel was well located for us. It is on a canal, but that canal is not used by the ferries. It is just a few blocks from the river and then a short walk to one of the river ferry docks. We took the river and canal ferries several times to get around that part of town, where most of the sights are. The hotel arranged for a canal tour for us and that was interesting. Otherwise we didn't use the hotel tour desk and I am not sure that they had the best selection of tours besides some of the standard ones. We walked several times the few blocks down to the Kosan rd area. The street above it and below it are the better options for shopping. Coming back from the weekend market we took the sky train to the river and then the river ferry to the dock nearest the hotel.
Of course, if you choose to stay in Khao San Rd, you can't ecpect quiet environment and silent nights. But my room was opposite to the road and could rest good enough. A little bit poor breakfast. Annoying wi-fi: quite poor signal, had to login every time I got connected and the account expired every three days.
Remember to carefully hold the deposit receipt: you won't receive the bht 1000 back if you can't exhibit it.
I would definetly recommed the Khaosan Palace, it is smack bang in the middle of the Khaosan Road, the room was very large, clean, there was a safe, fridge and free water. We asked for a quiet room and got one on the ground floor behind reception. Perfect. Couldn't fault it for cheap accommodation on the Khaosan Road

Had a fantastic stay in Tara Place. The staff made us very welcome and were very helpful. We had train tickets sent to us at the hotel and the staff kept them safe until we arrived. The room was nicely decorated and clean. They kept our bags after we checked out and then sorted a taxi for us to the train station.
The hotel is far enough from Khao San road to escape the craziness but near enough to walk down for a visit. Pier 13 for the boat taxi is a 5 minute walk as well.
