You could try some of the Guesthouses and low budget hotels in Kao San Road.

Give them a call and tell them your arrival time, all together you will be there by 00.30Am.

Here is a Website with a list of the guesthouses and hotels.

Check out the following link

www.bigjohnsworld.com

Great hostel run by an aussie, you can get a bus or taxi direct from the airport. Slightly more expensive then places on Kho Sanh RD but much cleaner, quieter and by staying in a dorm you are guarenteed to meet other travellers.

Place also stays open till much later then other places - great if you wanna have a drink and roll into bed.

Dont book a tour or anything from here as like most hostels/hotels the markup is huge. Head for Kho Sanh Rd and bargain hard!

Hope this helps

i usually stay at RoyalAsiaLodge.com

it's right off of Sukhumvit (main road) and close to the entrance to sky train, and close to internet cafe, massages, haircuts, 7-11, and many restaurants

i'm actually here now, staying from Oct 1st - Oct 15th :)

The Landmark Hotel on Sukhumvit Road, close to the Nana Skytrain stop, lots of restaurants nearby. Decently priced at around $100 per night when compared to other luxury hotels that charge $180 - $200 per night. Google them up.

Unless of course you had a definite dollar value in mind for your hotel???

The term "decently priced" is open to lots of speculation.

Landmark is nice, I ate at their restaraunt twice yesterday, they have the worst tom yum ghung soup I have ever had in my life.

But yes the hotel is pretty nice, but overpriced imho

$100 a night. When we go into town for a night we never pay more than 2000baht a night and that's for a 4* hotel. Paying $100 a night & over is 5* luxury in Bangkok

Unless someone else is paying for it, I usually stay at "no star" hotels in the 650 baht to 1200 baht range in Bangkok. In this price range you will still have a room with Air, HW, private bathroom/toilet, TV and fridge usually, and a security box either in your room or a lockbox at the front desk.

In smaller cities like Pattaya you can find hotels with air starting around 350 baht. I do think any hotel in Bangkok that costs more than $30 is overpriced.

Not far from the Landmark, on Soi 5 is the Foodland supermarket, the in store restaurant, the Took Lah Dee restaurant, has better (and cheaper ) food than the Landmark. But the food and setting looks better at the Landmark!
