Really nice room, friendly and helpful staff which was backed up by a story from a couple we met in Koh Tao and situated in heart of the city of squalor (Alan from Hangover's words not mine).

I chose the hotel at the last minute, because the two people I met at a bar were staying there.
It's a typical hotel, but in light of the surroundings that extrapolates to a palace of sorts. Khao San is a backpacker's paradise, and the poverty on the streets is rampant.
After a night of cheap booze and no food, it's a perfect hotel to crash in.
The lobby is well maintained, and the service was excellent. Checking out is a breeze, and if you need a ride to the airport, taxi's are lined up at the early morning hours waiting for you. Just ask the front desk what the typical fare is, and haggle with your driver.

Room Tip: If you are an early sleeper, the higher the floor, the better. Otherwise, all the rooms are satisfac...

My partner and I started our holiday of a lifetime here and was very impressed with the service and amenities you get for the price. Breakfast was excellent, spicy noodles etc ... just up our street! We stayed here on the way back from our travells too - it is very central and not too far from the airport in a cab

Stayed two nights, was good for a short stay. Excellent place to base yourself while checking out Bangkok. Walking distance to Reclining Buddha and Grand Palace. Not too far from the river and ferry options down towards Chinatown region. A real plus is being one block from Khao San Rd, close to the action and a bit away from the madness. The road that the Viengtai Htl is on is a quieter version of Khao San Rd with heaps of options. Rooms tidy, bathroom nice, breakfast great but the place gets a lot of noise from the surrounding nightlife. Turn on the antiquated air con which roars like a jet and problem solved. Not for the light sleepers unless you can get a room on the non-road side. Nice pool too.

My wife and I stayed at the Viengtai at the beginning and end of a tour that we completed through Northern Thailand. Just as a quick background we're 30 and 27 and travel a lot of pleasure and business. We felt that the rate was somewhere in the middle of places that we stayed.

Pros:
Nice private pool, well decorated hallways and lobby, huge breakfast buffet and helpful front desk with good English.

Take it or leave it:
Room furnishing (some nice features, but nothing to write home about).
Location (for some this may be a bonus if Khao San Road is your thing, but we thought it was difficult to get to. Taxi was really the best option. We wished public transportation would have been closer to get around the city).
Wi-fi (free in Lobby and in some rooms, but not as good as other places).

Cons:
Paying for the buffet (lots of cheap options around the hotel, so why eat at the buffet?)
Noise (some members of our group felt that it was very noisy outside they're window. You could try to drown the sound out with your air conditioning (which was pretty loud), but some people still had issues).

With so many places to stay in Bangkok I would think this place would just fall somewhere in the middle. Not a place I would usher people to, but I wouldn't shoo them away either.

Room Tip: Higher the floor the better to keep away from the street/bar noises.
