    Great place to stay in Bangkok

    Seems like a lovely place to stay. Staff are friendly, polite and helpful. Facilities are clean with spacious rooms. Gym and swiming pool are small and basic. Also only has 2 compters - but a lovely surprise to get 3 hours of free internet! Great location - close enough to plenty of restaurants and great for shopping. Managed to get a good nights sleep too as I couldn't hear any noise.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Viengtai Hotel Bangkok

    Our Kids Love The Viengtai

    from

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Viengtai. We have a 5 year old and 15 month and the staff was so nice and friendly to our children. They were very quick to tell us that they could cook anything for the children and it didn't have to be on the menu. The room sevice was quick, tasty, and cheap and when you have kids that are hungry right now it was perfect. We stayed our first night in one of their budget rooms which was ok - after that we stayed in a suite which was lovely. We will stay with the Viengtai again during our next visit.

    Very reasonable rates, excellent location

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Viengtai Hotel in January 2004. We found it to be very comfortable and the location was great. Really close to Khao San Road without all the noise. There is also a fantastic little restaurant across the street.

    No complaints

    from

    I stayed here for about 4 nights at the beginning of a 3-week trip through Thailand in 2001. The hotel made a good first impression on me by arranging for an airport limo on short notice. However, my traveling companion arrived a day late to meet me in Bangkok and when she got to the hotel the front desk told her I wasn't there because they had misfiled my registration card. We found each other the next day with a couple of phone calls to the front desk. They didn't charge her for the extra room she had to get her first night there because of the mixup. The breakfast was good, the rooms were nice and air conditioned, and with cable TV. Because there aren't many decent hotels in the Ko San Road area, I was pleasantly surprised with the overall quality of this hotel.

    1 night stay

    from

    Arrived without a booking and were shown straight to a double room. Paid about 20 for the room but would have been cheaper if we had done it in advance. Excellent location for Khao San Road (but just round the corner to a bit quieter). We were on 5th floor so again even further away from the noise below.

    Quite a large sized clean room with en-suite. Very low roof in the bathroom so avoid showers if you are really tall! Im only 5'3" and it was awkward for me.

    Only stayed the one night so didnt use any of their facilities except the breakfast room. Good selection of buffet food, your usual fry up, cereal and toast etc plus Thai meat and noodle dishes.

    Friendly and efficient staff.

    Great value, if you reserve on-line 3 days ahead

    from

    We booked directly with the hotel via ----- website, which links to the Viengtai Hotel. This is definitely NOT a guesthouse, but a good sturdy hotel - incidentally, INTREPID tours uses this as a base in Bangkok.

    We got a rate of 1200baht as we had reserved ahead, for a double room. Good, adequate accomodations with aircon, but with a Bangkok bathroom, which we came to understand comes automatically with black mold in the bathtub tile (we stayed at a more expensive place, the First Hotel in Pratunam, which had the same problem).

    A fellow we met up with on the flight came with us to find a room, and he was offered a rate of 1800baht off the street - so BOOK AHEAD!

    This is a great area to use as a base to arrange travel out of Bangkok. We got visas and tickets for Vietnam from here - a good spot to use as base camp for a couple of days.

    Decent, not great

    from

    The Viengtai Hotel has a great location, since it is about a 1 minute walk from Khao San Road. But for a mid-priced hotel in Bangkok, it isn't all that clean nor all that nice. They give you free breakfast but that isn't the best food, either. The shower needed to be de-moulded and re-tiled quite badly. But by British or American standards, the hotel is extremely cheap. If you want a moderately-priced hotel that you can book in advance, go with this one, but I also recommend the bed and breakfast across the street.

    Nice hotel, good location

    from

    I stayed at the Vengtai in October 04. For the money this hotel can't be beaten. Officially they won the best hostel in Thailand 2002 which confused me as there is no way you would confuse this place with a hostel. It is definitely a 3 star hotel. Their rooms were all clean and of a higher standard than many I have stayed in at home. All rooms were air conditioned which no-one should be without in Bangkok.

    Location wise it is only 200 mtrs from Koa Shan Rd and surrounded by small restaurants. The Royal Palace, National Museum and reclining Buddha are all within easy walking distance.

    Great Hotel and location

    from

    Myself and my my parents stayed in this hotel and we were very impressed. It was a lovely haven form the madness of Bangkok and really comfortable with great air conditioning and a fabulous breakfast. The only thing was it was ages away from the airport so leave yourself plenty of time to get to and from there although its a prime location for seeing the sights.

    Great Hotel.

    Have stayed here several times

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel several years in a row and I love it. Rooms are clean and comfortable with cold A/C, nice tub/showers. It can be a bit noisey at night but that happens all over the city. It is a few minutes walk to the backpackers area of Khao San Rd but it is quieter here which is why I enjoy it. There are also several nice massage /salons a few doors down as well as some bookstores and laundry and bars and restaurants. I think the buffet breakfast is above average (definitely get there early) and the staff is always quite helpful. I think I paid around 40.00 USD in October 2003 booking direct at hotel.

    Great budget hotel

    from

    stayed here in nov 2003 as a place to sleep for 6 nights. payed about 12.00 per night from the net (their own site) and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and size of the room. Asian staff are always welcoming in world-class hotels anyway but this was a budget hotel and the staff were most polite but not overwhelming.

    Buffet breakfast (included) was good if you got there before 9 a.m. (we rarely did) and hotel is in an excellent location for old Bangkok. plenty of backpackers as you would expect but so what.

    Being updated while we were there (new resturant/bar with loads of marble by the looks of it) but not really inconvenient to us.

    About 40 minutes from airport and unless you want world-class accommodation, this a great place to stay.

    Our Intrepid tour was finished, breakfast wasn't included so we went and ate in one of the many restaurants in Rambuttri Road. It was much better than a Cambodian breakfast.

    We caught a taxi up to the shopping centre area of Bangkok. We took the first taxi whose driver said 100 Baht for the 5 km journey, it was the third taxi driver. …

    This was to be a long day a travelling. First it was two hours travel to the Thai border then an hour going through the border. Once we got through the border on the Thai side, we had an unexpectedly long wait while we waited for some of our party to get their credit cards returned after being swallowed by a malfunctioning ATM.
