As told in the headline, I lived at Viva Garden for nearly half a year during an internship.
I had one of the smaller rooms with a view to the west (center). The sunset was great at the balcony. But lets start with the things that will be interesting for others.
Location: Though quite east on the Sukhumvit (on the map it looks like far off), you have GREAT access to the BTS (skytrain), which is the only way of transport sometimes when the traffic mounts.
Therefore you are at siam in about 20 Minutes, Thong Lo about 10 (counting from my room door).
Facilities: Pool: 5*. Mostly quiet, places to lay down, Sauna, Jacuzzi, Showers. You get your towels at the pool area. Gym: Towels and water provided, all necessary equipment there. I wished for a barbell sometimes, but.. well you can't have it all. Room: Great bathroom, OK kitchen, small but ok balcony, good tv, medium internet (for bangkok ok).
Service: 6* It's really great, professional and always friendly. I want to highlight Patrick and his friend, the other young guy, whoms name I unfortunatelly forgot. They were SO helpfull and treated me like a king everyday. Even after 5 months! Wow! hate that my financial situation didn't allow me to tip the staff generously!
Tips for the area
Drive with the BTS to Thong Lo, go to Soi 38 and eat Saté Chicken (gai). Drive one station to "on Nut" and eat on the food market. Same station, bit of a walk to "best beef" to experience non-touristy thai BBQ.
Overall I apologize for my bad english here, but I can't stop to recommend this lovely place with attention to detail and friendliness! Will be back soon!
Greetings to all of the staff, you are doing great work.
Best regards, Tobi
