Combining vintage design with creative elements of the ibis Styles brand spirit

Travellers visiting Bangkok’s postcard-perfect old city, will be delighted that ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai has come to Rambuttri Road, it was easily accessible by foot or bicycle in the old days.

The original Viengtai Hotel opened its doors in 1953 and was the first hotel in the Banglampu-Khaosan area which then became the start of a rich hospitality district that prevails to this day. The aim of the hotel then was to create a home-away-from-home for tourists visiting the capital as modern accommodations catering to the travellers were scarce. The hotel has since been refurbished and underwent a rebranding facelift under ibis Styles.

“Khaosan Road is a strategic area in Bangkok best known as a centre of backpacking travellers,” says Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia. “Packed along this long road are countless budget guesthouses and mid-range hotels – and we are pleased that ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai is the first international hotel in the area. As a flagship ibis Styles hotel, the property offers travellers an all-inclusive bed and breakfast with spaciousness and comfort.”

With a unique blend of vintage charm that intertwines Bangkok’s rich historical heritage, the hotel features 215 contemporary guest rooms that are furnished with the innovative and revolutionary Sweet BedTM concept by ibis that align density points of the body with plumped fluffy pillows and super-comfy duvet for a restful night’s sleep.

Foodies staying at the hotel can relish in a selection of local and international menu choices at Streats Café or enjoy freshly made French pastries at Streats Bakery. A selection of meat skewers and ala minute dishes are available at Streats Bar, an open concept grill-bar that also serves a range of signature cocktails and house-pours.

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.

General Manager Pierre-Yves Viou said, “Located in the heart of the capital’s cultural old town, ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai offers travellers a home-away-from-home in the quaint and vibrant district of Khaosan.  Featuring some of the best bars, clubs and eats in town, Khaosan offers a welcome respite for travellers looking for a quick weekend getaway.”
