Decided to stay at Phiman guest house mainly because of ok'ish price for a double room and location (walkable =up to an hours walk to city and sights) Hostel itself is really difficult to find and if you arrive at night you may struggle to locate it. We were lucky enough for our taxi driver to call them for directions,... More

The owner is welcoming but strict, which is great because only the best people stay here. There are cooking facilities and Jane encourages group meals. The view is awesome, and the garden is perfect. The dorm is a really good price and the rooms are equally fair. I love this place.

We stayed only one night here for the great price and it was with it! It is very hard to find, tucked away down some winding back alleys - google maps and locals helped a lot but perhaps the hotel should make it a bit more obvious. Check in was easy and the staff were lovely, our double room was... More

i reserved a single room here, it was on the first floor of the wooden house, very simple but also a very good deal. The staff is very kind and always available. The area could seem a bit dodgy but is a very typical "village within the city" and is actually very quiet. Walking distance to many tourist interest places... More

Reading reviews on Tripadvisor, Phiman has its fans and its detractors. In my humble opinion, it depends on what you seek. If you're in the mood for meeting other travelers, get to know a bit of Thai life (you may take the evening meal as a little family, learn some basics of cooking). Remark, there is absolutely no obligation :... More

I never write reviews for anything, but I feel a strong need to publicize my terrible experience at Phiman Water View/Phiman Riverview Guesthouse. To begin with, the place is very difficult to find, but if you keep asking the locals they will point you in the right direction. Google Maps locates you in the Chao Phraya river, so that won't...

Location: very close to Khao San road, right by the river. It gives off a beach vibe, which is very welcome in rather overwhelming Bangkok. The neighborhood is poor but safe, with lots of Thai families living by the river. Owner: Jane is very friendly and helpful. My bag didn't arrive with my flight, and she gave me clothes in... More

such an amazing sociable place in a nice setting with a view of the river. i enjoyed every minute, jane who runs the place is very accommodating and friendly (if you buy her a beer)!. she puts on bbqs most nights for guests which is great. very sociable place about 15minutes from koh san road.

Unfortunately I was sick with dengue fever when I arrived in Thailand, so I couldn't make the most of this hotels great location and the meals that guests would cook with the owners and I didn't really socialise.
