    100 years back in time”

    Location, style and feeling

    I absolutely loved Villa Guest House and I will return if I ever come back to Bangkok. It is in walking distance to Khaosan rd and riverboats. Great location but without the noice from Khaosan. It's like a tiny oasis or secret garden in the middle of Bangkok's chaos. Good people, wonderful garden and the rooms are beautiful, it's living history. We did sneak in to a few empty rooms on day three to find a better matress and then upgrade to one of the deluxe rooms with a less hard bed and proper furniture. You haven't tried a hard bed until you've stayed at Villa Guest House.

    Loved the property”

    The house/garden itself and the furnishings, the owner and the location

    I absolutely loved The Villa Guest House and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future. Bordered by a small but evocative garden the teak structured building is a veritable treasure trove of antique furnishings & objets d'art collected over the decades by its wonderful owner and hostess. While it may not be embellished with all the accoutrements available in the plethora of generic "modern" hotels in Bangkok, the essence of the character of the Villa Guesthouse is quintessentially Thai, preserving the memory of the Bangkok of a bygone era.

    Best Historic House ”

    Authentic teakwood house / Quiet lactation with garden / Charassed and charm

    This house, built over 100 years ago, made my Bangkok stay my most memorable experience while in Thailand. The large second floor room had floor to ceiling screened windows on three sides with the original teakwood shutters. The floors, again wide planked teak, gleamed with age and polish. The iron poster bed had thai-style mattress, firm and welcoming. The room also had a large desk and armoire along with several antique chairs. The owners, sister and brother, are the last in the family line that built the house and bring with them unparalleled knowledge of the neighborhood and surrounding area. Entered down a soi and small pathway this retreat is a far cry from the hubbub of Khaosan...I kept finding myself ensconced in my room not wanting go leave. Highly recommended.

    Charming quiet old house with beautiful garden”

    Quiet, old-styled, nice hosts

    The guesthouse is an old wooden Thai house with small tropical garden. Hidden behind other buildings, and very quiet (which is rare in Bangkok). Close to Khaosan. Our twin room was rather big, with huge windows overlooking the garden. The living room with the library and tons of vintage items was so charming! Bathroom was OK, with hot water and everything needed. The elder people that keep the house are calm and nice. They would store your luggage, and offer towels to take a shower even after checkout. The only drawback: beds are EXTREMELY hard (only mat, no mattress), which turned out to be a problem for me. Overall, a different stay in a unique old house, very good value for the money!

    A gem of a place if budget is what you're after”

    The building itself is very Thai, old-fashioned and wooden. The elderly lady who runs it is gorgeous. The place is close to Khaosan Rd, but is really q

    I loved Villa guest house and have been back. I am travelling alone and booked the single room on the ground floor. It was quite hot, even with the fan on, but I got used to it. I used it as a base for travelling elsewhere and she very kindly let me leave my large suitcase there in between stays so I could travel with a smaller case to other destinations. It was really quiet and peaceful despite being only 5 mins from Khaosan Rd. There were plenty of places to get food nearby. I particularly liked Chomp, on the corner, and next door to Chomp, cinema wine house.

    Perfect location! So quit and so close to party and historical places. ”

    I'm in love in this house and hosts! Just near house is water machine- 1 bath for a bottle. And travel agency - they bring u to airport just for 150 bath! On the road is bus stop and buses goes everywhere(use Google maps, it helps to take a right bus). Across the road a few local cafe and 7 eleven. In the house u can use kitchen and refrigerate and also free coffee and tea(thanks to hosts again). It's two bathrooms in it, one with a hot water, if needed. Free wifi works well and everywhere. And wonderful garden! .So, if u wants to stay in real historical woden house, quit but close to party and to everywhere, Villa guesthouse is for you.

    Great atmosphere of „Old Asia“”

    This wooden guesthouse is a magical place. It feels almost like time-traveling into Old Asia. I like the little garden and the proximity to Khaosan (10 min) walk. If you can put up with very simple, but clean living conditions this is the place for you. The only drawback: Being a wooden house, it can be quite noisy depending on the other guests.

    Charming, rustic, restorative”

    1) The beautiful garden. (2) The charming, century old house. (3) The delightful company of the guests and the owners.

    My jaw dropped when we stepped through the gate of the Villa. The lush, high-walled garden makes you forget that the bustling Khao Sahn neighborhood is just 100m outside the door. There are tons of retaurants and coffee shops within walking distance (including some great veg*n options: May Kaidee and Mango). We had a lovely time sitting in the garden and chatting the morning away with the interesting personalities that were also staying there. This is not a place for those who party hard. The owner is a friendly old woman who has very limited English, but she has posted signs requesting that guests do not participate in any sort of illegal behavior. Cigarettes and unmarried couples sharing beds are OK, raucous behavior is not. The amenities are Spartan, but they are fine for anyone used to traveling on the cheap. The owner will even let you store your bag for free after you check out, and she'll let you shower when you come to pick it up! All in all, I found our stay very rejuvinating. I highly recommend it!

    Perfect! The location is few minutes from Khaosan road, but it is still very quiet place. Beautiful garden with swings and benches is so relaxing! Little old woman as a manager was absolutely awesome and very helpfull. We could leave our spare belongings for a month there, for free as well! You will have a feeling that you are staying in old Bangkok, everything is so original! I just love this place.

    Location & friendly host

    The Villa Guest House is an really old Teak House - the enterior is simple and old, yes but the owner, an old lady makes it all up with her charming and friendly kind. I got there at 9 in the morning as my flight arrived very early - she didn't hestitate a second to show me my room right away without any extra. If you want air con and your own bathroom, look somewhere else. If you wanna spend some time in a long gone aera / history, that's the place to be. Close to Khao San Road (8 min.walk) but really quite.

Full of traditional furnitures collected from all of bangkok. Very comfortable and save place but has some disadvantages: bed veeeery hard, realy realy hard. Very cheap, value for money.

    Good house, kind landlord and landlady, there are many flowers and old trees in the yard”

    The house has a long history around 80-90 years old, some facilities are classic furniture, but is very clean. Free coffee and tea. The most important thing is the landlord and landlady are so kind, solve your problems and give your useful suggestions. I think the second floor with two separate beds maybe have a good scenery, I want to book one if I have chance back to Bangkok. Good location, I went to the the grand palace and the other temples just by walk.

    1. Everything was more than 100 years old. Going inside the house like going inside a small museum. 2. The garden ouside is so lovely, full of green plants. 3. The owner, an old lady is very nice.

    I enjoy my time staying there a lot. Everything is so different. It is located nearby the Khaosan road (just 10 min walking) but it's peaceful and beautiful in its own way, living there you can feel like going back to the very old time. I would like to stay there again when i come back to Bangkok. Definitely a good experience for those who love peace !

    The bed is not comfortable. My partner is Turkish and they love a hard bed, but this was something else. But apart from that, this place is wonderful. The hosts are friendly and helpful, the location is perfect and the secret garden is such a joy from the concrete jungle of Bangkok. This is not a party place which is perfect to us as we wanted somewhere to chill. The clientele were just like us which Made it all the more lovely. If you are over khao San road but want the location, want to be able to sleep at night listening to a peaceful garden in a quiet house, stay here!! Would definitely come back if we pass through Bangkok!

    If you want to stay in an authentic 90 year old Thai house, this is for you. Beds are a new level of hard but overall it was worth it to be away from the usual generic hotel. Location is excellent to access main tourist strip, easy boat ride to the Grand Palace. The host lady checked our clothes before we went to the Grand Palace as the dress code is very strict
