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.

We had a room with a pool view which was nice because we wanted to get fresh air and leave the door open in the morning. The staff was professional and we appreciated the housekeeping staff making up our room daily. A great location and there are good coffee shops and a nice momo restaurant I recommend to try it!

This was the perfect Oasis in busy Bangkok. I loved the character of the place and the pool area was just perfect and quiet to cool down. The location is great and not far from Khaosan Rd. The staff were very nice and I got a free room upgrade. The room was clean, spacious and very comfy bed. I would stay here again for sure.

Very accessible and clean. Close to the main attractions of Old town and easy to get transportation. The property was very quiet so it was easy to relax by the pool and other common areas. Would come back!!
