Villa Phra Sumen sits in the heart of historic Bangkok, located on Phra Sumen Road which ran along the ancient city's walls and connected Phra Sumen and Maha Kan Forts over two hundred years ago. Among the 14 forts that were built to protect the city from enemy attacks in the late 17th century, Phra Sumen and Maha Kan Forts are the only ones that still stand today. Villa Phra Sumen is also centered among Rattankosin Island's most popular highlights, including the Emerald Buddha, Wat Pho Temple, The Temple of Dawn, Bawon Niwet Wihan Temple, Suthat Thepwararm Temple, Brahmin Temple, The Golden Mount, Loha Prasat (Metal Palace), The Grand Palace, Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall, Vimanmeak Mansion, The Giant Swing, Democracy Monument and even some charming communities which still go about their ways in the traditional Thai way. The urban boutique resort comprises 2 converted and restored historic buildings, offering 29 guest suites combining both contemporary and classic Thai styles. Towards the back of the property is a two story building situated along Rop Khrung Canal built of wood and concrete. Each suite offers high ceilings, wooden floor, antique furniture and windows opening onto the canal, from where guests can see the traditional lifestyle of people living in the area. The front 4-story building offers tastefully and functionally finished rooms, but with private balconies overlooking the internal courtyard. Villa Phra Sumen is perfectly suited to guests seeking serenity and privacy in an environment which conjures of the atmosphere of hundreds of years ago. Our dedicated staff looks forward to welcoming you to a pleasant stay in old Bangkok and at Villa Phra Sumen.

I stayed at Villa Phra Sumen Bangkok (now called Villa Bangkok, if I am not wrong) for 6 days/5 nights. The place is located near Khao San, meaning that many attractions can be reached by walk. The room was wonderful and so were the swimmingpool and the common areas. Staff was great Want to thank Noey (not sure about the name, hope I got it right) and the other girls for their assistance and kindness. I'll be back soon!

We stayed for 11 days and it was a wonderful experience! Clean room with a big bathroom, although it was a bit dark. However, if you’re planning to walk around the city all day it’s not a problem. Girls in the reception were great and always helpful. Although their English wasn’t always good, they were trying hard to communicate with us. On our next trip, we will also choose this hotel!

The most pathetic hotel I have ever stayed. Pictures on web vs what you get are fake. When you ask the person on reception they simply ask to leave the hotel. I have never been asked to leave the hotel. THIS IS THE WAY THEY TREAT THIER CLIENTS BY ASKING TO LEAVE THE PROPERTY.

Perfect place for a once night stopover in Bangkok, it has a nice pool area and our room had a balcony for if you want to chill. It is also within walking distance to Khao San Road and plenty of good restaurants.

For accommodation in Bangkok it is very good value, with wonderful ambiance, quiet yet close to many attractions and great local food. It is low level and all the rooms face an inner courtyard pool where one can relax amongst a lovely garden setting.

Very nice people, great rooms, perfect location and clean facilities! The swimming pool is in a nice and quiet place and there's a lot of street food available in the neighborhood. Also surprised about the rates per night. We will go here again!

We stayed in the family canal view room. Huge, beautiful room and bathroom. Great decor and very helpful staff. The garden and pool area are an absolute joy to hang and relax at. Close to koh san and rambrutti. Would definitely stay again, in fact I’ve already booked for next year.

Amazing hotel. All the staff made us feel like our home in Bangkok, always very attentive. Really recommendable. Nice and charm pool. We tried the food and it was also very good. Impeccable cleaning service. A place to return without a doubt.
