“Comfortable stay, helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We stayed at Villa Phra Sumen for three nights in June. Moo and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful, going out of their way to accommodate our early check-in, early mornings, and provided us with helpful activity and public transit suggestions.

Our room was quiet, spacious. Air conditioning worked well. We were able to sleep uninterrupted. We did not even notice nor hear the construction going on in the front lobby area.

The location is just northeast of Khao San Road. Walking times were 10 min to Khao San Road, 30 min to Grand Palace, 15 min to Phra Sumen boat station, 10 min to the canal public transit boats.

But since this review has to have at least 200 characters, "great" won't cut it. The hotel was solid though. Located close to Khao San rd for tourists to wander, as well as many temples. The room was clean and modern. Staff was also very friendly, always trying to be accommodating. At first our room had two single beds, but the immediately got us a room with a double once I mentioned that we are, uh, not just friends. We had to get to the airport for about 5:30 am as well, and the staff not only arranged a cab, but made sure we had a breakfast to take away, which was thoughtful. The breakfast that was included wasn't the greatest, but that's not a big deal, after all, you can go anywhere nearby and supplement it for only a few baht.

Anyway, great hotel, reasonable price. I would recommend and would stay again myself. Oh, there's no swimming pool, in case that's a deal breaker for you.

I stayed at this hotel for 1 week with my family and it was nothing short of a wonderful experience. I booked very easily by email with communication prompt and detailed. The whole staff were very friendly and helpful above anything I have experienced before. There room was spacious with a wonderful design and spotless. We had special dietary requirements for breakfast outside the normal menu which was never going to be a problem here and breakfast each day was specially prepared for us. The hotel is centred around a beautiful common area garden overlooking the canal where we spent time relaxing. This was also a lovely place for my daughter who played regularly in the garden and with all of the staff. We hope to return here again soon.

1st Class.. I had a major hiccup with our travel plans when on the morning we were due to fly to Bangkok I lost my passport.. These guys were wonderful in what for us was a very upsetting + stressful situation. Nothing was a problem, they were so accommodating. The hotel is clean, lovely showers, 24hr security + perfectly positioned for a good night's sleep, yet close enough to walk + take in the hustle + bustle of Khoa San Road. Look no further guys, the reviews speak for themselves. We are planning a return trip to Thailand next year. If we fly to Bangkok we will without doubt be staying here again. Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed!!

In short: I have no idea why anyone would stay anywhere else. This place is amazing - spotless, new, spacious, comfortable, boasting cool modern design and a very European aesthetic. The bathrooms are huge with both a rain shower and a hand held and the shower itself is huge. Even the towels are very lightly scented - what a wonderful touch. Flat screen, huge comfy couch, closet, fridge, comp. water etc., brand new AC, wonderful staff, beautiful courtyard, private huge balcony - really high ceilings and SO SO clean! Breakfast amazing - honestly this is the nicest place I think I've every stayed. It's like a 5-star for such a deal!

Room Tip: I liked the Courtyard view - peaceful and very relaxing!

This new hotel is the best option in the Khao san road area for sure.

I stayed there in February when it was first opening.

A lot of money has been spent on every detail in the rooms. The bathrooms are high spec, the rooms are European standard with the best type of bed and air con system.

The breakfast is delicious- the best Ive ever had.

You will happy with this hotel if you decide to stay here. Its only a 5 min walk to the KSR area and 5 min to the restaurants / village area of Soi samsen 2. Just cross the canal and walk 5 min.

I highly recommend this hotel!!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces the garden courtyard. I would avoid the urban rooms unless your ok with noi...
