Am looking for budget accom in Bangkok. Does anyone know of anywhere on the river? I have to be walking distance to Khaosan Rd but the thought of actually staying on it makes me feel queazy. I don't wanna pay more than about 350 baht. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
This is going to be less than technical in explanation, but if you come out of Khao San Road (the opposite end to Burger King), turn right, then about 200m or so further on the left there is a road with much cheaper guesthouses. Also, if you continue past that another 100m or so, there is an area on your right in the back streets which is also a chunk cheaper. Don't know anywhere actually on the river, sorry, and most of the otehr places i know are a long walk from KSR
there is another lovely hotel in Bangkok
called Phranakorn Nornlen
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 here
