The Viengtai has long loomed over the centre of Soi Rambutri while looking out of place among the small, artsy cafes.
The downright depressing European-Colonial theme includes boring floral paintings and a somewhat frightening statue of a young boy carrying golf clubs. The first standard room that we checked out was a bit musty, with crooked framed art above the firm bed. While similarly lacking character, the deluxe was better thanks to hardwood floors and a fresher smell. All rooms are spacious and include large bathrooms, TVs, air-con, furniture, windows, desks and mini-fridges. Several options are available for families. One of the long and dark corridors leads to a small but secluded swimming pool and large restaurant where free buffet breakfasts are served. Next to the drab ground-floor lobby is a spacious European-style cafe. On our most recent visit, staff were exceptionally friendly. Listed rates are way overpriced, but considerable discounts are offered all year, whether you walk in, book through the hotel's website, or through a booking site. You can save a couple hundred baht if opting out of breakfast. Below we've listed the rates that we were most recently quoted in person.
