Decided to stay in Bangkok for new year and found this place from my sister. Very nice, clean and boutique hotel...their decoration and atmosphere made me feel more like staying in ChiangMai. Few minutes away from central of old Bangkok, so very good to go back and forth between hotel and places, especially when we have three little kids. Will definitely come back.

If you looking for a safe place to stay near Khaosan area with your family and kids, don't hesitate to go for Villa Phra Sumen. It took me less than 10 minutes walk to Khaosan road and many old temples. This hotel is brand new, beautiful and peaceful. I stayed in the canel view room, which can see the traffic around the canel. The bathroom is huge with a bath as well as the shower. Really love this place. and will definitely go back.

Very beautiful. The hotel gives nice oriental feeling. It has simplicity mixed with splendid design. Villa Phra Sumen is different from other hotels in good ways. If I have a chance, i will visit again for numerous times for sure.

Classical Asian design meets Thai hospitality at The Villa Phra Sumen, an elegant serviced residence with free Wi-Fi. The Villa Phra Sumen is just 5 minutes' walk from Old Bangkok and steps from the river. It is 30-minute drive from the nearest airport, Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. You will see Thai life culture around, quiet place.. very nice.

The owner is an architect who loves to spend his afternoon enjoying with his guests. He and his partner are generous. He introduced us a lot about his neighbourhood and the concept and history of his hotel. There is a little yard in the middle of the villa for the kids to have a place to run and play. Staffs are nice. The hotel is still new and clean.

The best place to stay in the old town of Bangkok. The owner(Khun Kae) and staff are really friendly and helpful. The room is nicely decorated in modern Thai-Chinese style with a lot of sense for details and design, bathroom is spacious with a view of canal and the bed is nice and clean. The environment is very relaxing. It is an oasis in the tourist craziness of old town Bangkok. I am surely that you would never find any places like Villa Phra Sumen in this chaotic area and I would certainly stay here again but suggest they offer more options of breakfast and improve internet connection.

Room Tip: rooms with garden and canal view are perhaps a good choice

We planned to stay there only for 1 night but as we entered the front gate we ended up registered for 2 nights. We were firstly impressed by the beautiful buildings and friendly staffs. The room nearby the canal is extremely gorgeous. I really like the scenery and the big white bath tub.
