Thanks for the input. We have chosen the train over Air Aisa as we are flying several times to, across, back from Vietnam so we thought it would be nice to try the train.

Cheap to me is about £20 ($30/1000Baht). We area spending a lot more in other parts of the trip so thought with the vast amount of budget hotels in Bangkok we could save a bit of money by getting a reasonable but cheap place here

I originally thought we should stay on khao san road but seem to read all the time that the sky train is the way to travel around Bangkok.

There is an overnight sleeper train that you can take to Chiang Mai if you want. That way you would save on paying for another night in a hotel in Bangkok too!

When you say "we" is that a wife or just a friend? Because here is a hotel that you can use that is not far from the Skytrain but they have some restrictions on shack ups or people bringing in "guests" for sleepovers. Old fashioned hotel, the Atlanta.

This next hotel is on a short road that is close to the Swiss Park Hotel. Several cheap hotels on this strip, Sukhumvit Soi 11/1. This is a connection between Sukhumvit Road and Soi 11. Bangkok Inn is one of the places and President Inn is another. Both places will have rooms with A/C, hot water and private toilets.
