I stayed in Bangkok for about three months in total, at different places, but my favourite was Twin Guest house, just around the corner from Khao San Road, on the river, which had the best of all worlds.

It was also near yummy food: a cheesecake shop, a vegetarian music cafe, and even a place to get German rye bread (which was a great change after only seeing the crustless white bread everywhere!)

For a touch of luxury try the apartments from http://www.centrepoint.com we stayed at the Garden wing and it worked out at $30 each a night for two of us, we had panoramic views of Bangkok, two huge balconies one massive lounge with Bar! and two beds and two baths. Apartments had a great swimming pool and gym. It's well located and you can even arraange for them to pick you up from the airport for about £8 each. Breakfast was also, great. I can tell you it was a shock to go from that luxury to the bungalows at the Thai Boxing camp in Koh Samui!

there is another lovely hotel in Bangkok
called Phranakorn Nornlen
http://www.phranakorn-nornlen.com/
it is a lovely boutique hostel, which is very popular among the local people.
the concept of the hotel as a green hotel ( no smoking, organic breakfast)
and the concept of " Slow your life"
seem to be the reason to attract many foreigners as same as local
while local come here to relax , and get away from the buzzling city life on weekend
many foreigner find this place as an oasis where they can enjoy a lovely holiday
away from tourist trap area like khaosarn road

all rooms are all hand painted by the owner herself and her husband.
many room the view of the Buddha Image and city
here some photo

I usually stay Sukhumvit Soi 8 area, near AWESOME nightclubs/nightlife, good food, near BTS Sky Train, etc etc but the hotel I was staying at had a horrible mosquito infestation, so I moved few days ago to this apartment for only 1000baht/night with wireless internet, over near Pantip Plaza area, it's totally Thai type of area, not many Farangs around here that I've seen so far, so I do like that ;)

But I would totally recommend staying at or near Sukhumvit and make sure your hotel is near a Sky Train entrance ;)

Good luck!

I went to stay there few days ago, before getting my current apartment, and they told me they were totally sold out :(

Hi,

if you wanna stay close to Siam Square then the guesthouses in Soi Kasemsan (a small and quiet side-road, only a few minutes walk from Siam Square and the shopping-centers). We once stayed in the "Wendy House" which is a really nice & frinedly one with breakfast, internet & laundry service, near by is a very good and cheap restaurant. Apart from Wendy's there are some more gusthouses in Soi Kasemsan, a friend recommended the Muanphol Mansion at the corner Soi Kasemsan/Rama I Rd.

Filika - Best regards,

Silke

Hello Hatty

What about Soi Chanasongkran?
Just 5 mins walking distance, from the Khao San Road. Quieter, but still with budget guesthouses and plenty of cafes and restaurants and shops. Also, just 5 minutes walk, from the river, where u can catch the passanger boats.
