Rikka Inn, Khao San Road, Bangkok Video

Rates and availability at The Rikka Inn.


  • Location – right on the Khao San Road gives you access to cheap food, shopping, smoothies and all the Khao San has to offer.
  • Clean Rooms.
  • Complimentary toiletries including soap, shampoo and cotton buds.
  • Helpful and friendly staff (24hr reception service).
  • Rooftop pool (great when you want a bit of peace and quiet).


  • Small room and bathroom unless paying for the deluxe bedrooms.
  • Pricey versus alternative accommodation just five minutes walk from the Khao San.

We have stayed at the Rikka Inn numerous times and do enjoy being in the heart of Khao San. It is just as easy to stay a 5-10 minute walk away (as we have also done), we stayed at The Roof View Place and still wondered over to Khao San for street food. It all depends on what you want out of your time in the city.
