Im leaving cork on Jan 16th so ill be in Bangkok around 16.00 on Jan 17th. Id like to have somewhere booked before I get there so i was just wondering if anyone could recommend a nice hotel not too expensive. Know i should be staying in budget accomodation but im gona try and ease my way into it. Not a snob just a hygiene freak!
Thanks a mil!
We stayed at Buddy Lodge which is nice and on Khao San Road so you can ease yourself into the action!
I have not stayed there, but I did find a decent priced hotel when helping another TPer. Google; 'woodlands inn bangkok'. Rooms for around 500bt and OK location. Worth a look.
Thats great ill check them out. Thanks guys!
There are tonnes of hotels and guest houses in the Banglampu area of Bangkok (basically where most travellers hang out). A good place for your first night is D&D Inn, right in the centre of Khao San Road. You can get pretty good rooms for your money (about B700 incl air con) and it is right in the centre of things without being too noisy like some of the guest houses on Khao San. Another good place is Rambutri Village Inn on Soi Rambutri (just around the corner from Khao San and therefore much quieter but still good vibe). You can get fan rooms there for B300 and it has a pool too. Don't worry too much, I don't think you'll have too much of a problem if you turn up not having booked somewhere.
check out www.khaosanroad.com Dont know how independent the advice is but seems ok, I'm spending 2 nights in the New Joe Guesthouse just off khao san road next week so I'll let you know what its like!
Looked at the Kahosan Raod website but alot of them say 10min walk from there. Just wondering is it rly ten minutes or more like 20? thanks for all the help everyone!
how budget is budget?
check out asia hotel, near the train. easy get around in the crazy traffic ther
have a look here
they've got a wide range so you'll probably be able to find something that meets your requirements. hope its useful to you!
