Travellers who remember the Viengtai Hotel in the old town area of Bangkok can now stay in its new incarnation, the ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai on Rambuttri Road.



The original Viengtai Hotel opened its doors in 1953 and was the first hotel in the Bang Lamphu-Khao San area, which over the years has grown into a popular place to stay. 

Back then, with little modern accommodation catering to visitors to the capital, the hotel aimed to create a home-away-from-home for tourists. The hotel has since been refurbished and underwent a complete rebranding facelift under ibis Styles.

“Khao San Road has long been favoured by backpackers,” says Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.

“The road is lined with budget guesthouses and midrange hotels and we are pleased to introduce ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai as the first international hotel in the area. We offer travellers all-inclusive bed and breakfast with spaciousness and comfort.”

The hotel features 215 contemporary and well-appointed guestrooms, Streats Cafe offers an international menu while Streats Bakery boasts freshly made French pastries at. A selection of meat skewers and easy dishes are available at Streats Bar, an open concept grillbar that also serves a range of signature cocktails and housepours.

Outdoor facilities include a pool, kids club, and bike rentals. For social events and business meetings, the hotel has two meeting rooms that can cater up to 200 guests.

“Located in the heart of the capital’s old town, ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai is a stone throw away from vibrant Khao San,” says general manager Pierre-Yves Viou.

Guests booking a weekend stay until October 31 can enjoy a special price of Bt2,530 net per night with breakfast for two.
