    Lovely spot away from Khaosan road”

    It was our first time in Bangkok so wanted to be near Khaosan Road but without being on it. This place is lovely and peaceful next to the canal and tucked away from the road. Comfy bed with good AC in the room. The shared bathroom is kept very clean and the staff are friendly. Close enough to decent transport links like the ferry and bus stations.

    Very good guesthouse”

    A little bit hard to find (in a very small alley) but it's very quiet and well located. Only 7-8 minutes walk to Khao San Road but without being in the bustle ! My room (sgl std) was very clean and confortable. Maybe just a little dark (no window). Bathrooms are also very clean. The garden is very quiet and it's so nice to just relax here after a long day in the noise of the city. Also the family who manage the GH is very nice.

    Big City Oasis”

    This was my first trip to Thailand. I arrived late at night and was obliged to walk half a mile to Viman. Through dark alleys and extremely unfamiliar territory i trudged through and rang the bell of the back alley doorway. When the door opened i was introduced to a quiet quaint courtyard green and peaceful! The room was comfortable with great a/c worth the price and would stay again in a heartbeat! Loved it!!!

    Good location on a quiet alley just off the main road. Should have been a peaceful location but had the owner’s screaming child to wake up to in the morning. Bedsheets were a little dirty and duvet was far too small for a double bed. Good air con though. There are better options value wise out there but we left it too late.

    Close to Khoa San Road but hard beds”

    My biggest memory of this guesthouse was the hard bed. I didn't sleep much but maybe I need to get use to SE asia beds. On the plus side the showers had hot water and the AC in the room worked well. The place was clean and it was cool to sleep in a room completely made out of wood (possibly even the mattress). Khoa San Road is less than 10 minutes walk away. The river ferry pier is also very close and the most scenic way to get to the centre of the city.

    Best location, but low water pressure”

    It was close to Khaosan and Rambuttri. But very quite. Rest at garden was peaceful and can breath in fresh air. The best advantage of this guest house is you can get on the canal boat infront of guest house. Low water pressure was bad to shower. Room was clean, but i see the bug getting into bag... And i recommand river side restaurant to eat breakfast.

    Lovely stay”

    I truly loved my stay here. The family was incredibly helpful and sweet. The courtyard is lovely, neighborhood and surrounding is quiet yet very close to the bustle of Khao San and markets and restaurants. They give you a key to come and go into the compound at hours that are convenient to you. It is down a bit of a path along the waterfront so it wasn’t easy to find in find initially but I will absolutely recommend this guesthouse highly and stay here again. The only drawback for me is like to come and go from Bangkok often and the luggage storage they offer is not in an enclosed or locked room like some guest houses offer. Not a problem for most so it’s just a thing I wish were different.

    Calm backyard and close to the vivid touristic Bangkok”

    My single bed room was small but cozy. The shower was clean. No desk or hooks for cloths. The air condition was partly not working and so it was a bit hot during the night. But it was OK. The hostel is close to Khao San Road and Rambuttri Raod so good for the night life and partying. But the restaurants with a bad quality.

There is no Dorm type accommodations( limited number of the staying guests.) Recommend for single or couples. Very convenient for boat trip and main historical sites Close to sophisticate restrains raw by the river.

    Green and quite in the Heart of Bangkok ”

    Quiet, but near to all tourist attractions, really cozy rooms and nice garden to relax in

    We really enjoyed our stay at Viman. We also stayed a day longer than planned. We arrived early morning so we couldn't get into our room but where able to stay at the garden and could get a short nap at the sunbeds :) We could also get a shower and coffee while we were waiting. Earlier than planned we could get in our room and it was really nice. Reminds me of the old Asian buildings. We missed just a mirror and a possibility to hang stuff. No Mosquitonet so we were glad to bring our own. All in all it was a really cool stay. Near to all tourist attractions (grand palace, Wat Poh, Wat Arun, khao San) but really quite and close to nicer restaurants and bars than in Khaosan Road! We would stay here again next time.

    Location, you can easily walk to Khaosan road, the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, ... Food, there are lots of delicious restaurant nearby. And it's super quiet.

    I had a nice trip. I stayed in a single room, it was clean, cozy and quiet. The receptionist, Em, is very helpful. It took about 5 minutes to the Khaosan road, 15 - 20 minutes to the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, 7 - 10 minutes to the nearest ferry station, about 70 - 100 THB by bike or taxi to Siam Paragon. Definitely stay here in my next trip.

    Quiet, peaceful place ”

    garden, location, cleanliness

    I chose the place mainly because of the garden, which perfectly satisfied my expectation throughout my stay. It's hard to find at first, but quite conveniently located because it's close to every direction. (Khaosan Road, Rambuttri Soi, and Phra Sumen Road). Very clean and quiet. The staff were alright but I wasn't informed about the facilities when I checked in and did not receive a response about my question via email. Many mosquitoes, but no mirror in the room. Kind of boring. Big merits and small minuses. Overall, I'd come back!
