“New modern spacious hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Overall we are happy with our stay at Viva Garden. We probably would like stay in a place that is more central next time, closer to Siam Center since we liked the shopping in Bangkok. BTS is 5 mins away, and Siam Center is about 15mins away by BTS. Taxi to Siam is about 100-150 baht. We used the BTS on a couple of occasions and it was safe and really convenient. Other than the extra commuting that you will need to do to get to Siam Center, the service, quality of the apartment was really good.

This was my second stay, and I will recommend Viva Garden. Viva Garden is a very well maintained and modern serviced residence. The reception is elegant, as the building itself, and the receptionists and porters are very polite, efficient and service minded.

Buffet breakfast is included in the rate, which has a small selection of cold and warm dishes. Service in the restaurant is good, though they could be a little more efficient in removing used plates.
The rooms are modern and very clean and spotless, as the whole residence. A kitchen for self-catering, flat screen TV, modern furniture and large windows to the small balcony make the stay in the room comfortable.

WiFi is free, but reliability suffers. Since this has been reported several times, a qualified assessment of the WiFi infrastructure should be conducted. When connection seemed to be broken, I experienced that I could reconnect by switching to another access point..

The residence has an attractive small garden with a very nice pool, and also a gym and a sauna, but the treadmill was out of order during my stay.

The residence’ location is somewhat out of town, but it is easily accessible by the BTS Skytrain (Bangchak station), which is also connected to the Airport Link (approximately 25 minutes on each leg).
The first Skytrain stop towards the city (On Nut) has a small market and simple outdoor restaurants, which is a good alternative to going to the more busy city areas, and it is only a twelve minutes’ walk from the residence.

The check-out was efficient, but an unnecessary last bad experience was caused by the receptionist suspiciously asking me to sit down and wait until house-keeping had checked the room.

We are glad you returned stay and also take the time to write such a kind feedback regarding your recent stayed at Viva Garden on TripAdvisor website. We are delighted to know that our accommodation and service are still measured up your expectations.

Regarding the WiFi internet, we are on processing of checking and upgrading the access points due to the higher traffic of guests who use internet in the building.

All in all, thank you for your stays and we hope to have a chance of welcoming you back to our residence again soon.

The room is really big and cosy. Even though it's a distance away from central area, it's a good place to stay in. It's just next to Bang Chak BTS. Very convenient! The breakfast isn't that fantastic though as it doesn't have alot of varieties.

Room Tip: Get superior room!

We had a lovely stay at Viva Garden. We have stayed there 2 times and the staff is friendly and remembers us with a smile and "welcome back." We like the ease of jumping on the sky train to see th city. Naphat is very nice and we thank him and the rest of the staff for their excellent service.

I just came back from a week stay here. I came to Bangkok as a solo female for travel. I was really pleased with my stay here.It was quiet and very peaceful. My room was excellent and the service was very good. Most of the staff whom I encountered were very friendly and accommodating. My room was a superior studio and I was delighted with it and having a balcony to sit out and view the city life from. My room was always cleaned and the housekeeping lady Ongira was excellent.
I felt very safe as there was 24 hour security and the elevators are also key card restrictive.
The location of the hotel was very convenient less than 5 minutes to the BTS skytrain and less than 20 minutes to shopping and entertainment districts.
I would say the only negative was that there was a weak signal from my room for making calls on my cell phone, so sometimes my calls would end unexpectedly, but that was a minor issue.
Other than that, I would highly recommend this hotel.
My stay at Viva Garden made my trip to Bangkok even more fabulous. It was nice to have a sanctuary to get some rest after a full on day of shopping and exploring. I will definitely return here and bring my family here as well.

The Viva Garden is situated outside the center. However that is offset by its very close proximity to the Skytrain which is only a minute or so walk away. We arrived earlier than the advertised check in time but that was no problem. Having been greeted with a welcome drink we were taken to a one bedroom apartment overlooking the pool.
The accommodation whilst not in the luxury bracket is comfortable. The kitchen was small but functional and the lounge area a good size with decent furniture ,large TV etc. The bedroom was fine with a desk. A fair sized bed had been put in though that meant that the bedside cabinet did not fit properly and it was placed sideways. The bathroom was great with a super shower.
Outside was a great pool with spouting statues which helped remove the tedium of swimming laps. The gym looked good but we did not have time to use it.We were only staying one night and time restraints on the day we left meant we did not have time to eat, Instead we tried to get a quick breakfast at the coffee shop at the end of the drive. That proved to be a big albeit very cheap mistake and would not recommend anyone to try.
All in all this was a great experience which we would be more than happy to repeat. We stayed in between flights at the 2 Bangkok airports and it was easy to get to both via taxi due to easy access from the highway. The only warning I would give is ignore any pictures in the advertising literature. Whilst the internal depictions are accurate they have somewhat enhanced the views through the windows. This Viva Garden is not in an attractive area by any stretch of the imagination but is highly recommended.

My fiancée and I stayed for 3 nights in their 1-bedroom executive room. Room is sweet and balcony view is great! Hotel is located just 2min walk to BTS Bang Chak and 20min train ride to Siam BTS (that's really very convenient if you consider bangkok's road traffic) but it is slightly far from Chinatown though. We initially requested for a room to be on the higher levels but I got my room on the 6th floor instead, that's not a big problem because the service provided by Patrick and Naphat certainly made up for that! They definitely made my trip so much more enjoyable with their attentiveness and passion. Food from the Baibua restaurant was semi-decent at best, I'd say step out and explore, you can even find tasty local food just across the street. Didn't had time to use their in-hotel facilities but the next visit we will!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the higher levels if possible. School nearby = slightly noisy in the day
