The area immediately surrounding Victory Monument (both the actual monument and the BTS station) has some interesting accommodation that puts loads of great food and drink at your fingertips. A few stops further north, Saphan Khwai is worth considering if you're after something more laid back.
Mystic Place is definitely a departure from reality. Three buildings crouch around a tiny soi that makes up this hotel's courtyard, housing 36 of the most interestingly decorated hotel rooms this city has to offer. A different Bangkok artist designed each room's décor, leaving the hotel with a range of over the top rooms from the champagne-and-pink-sugar explosion that is Room 201, to Room...

With a fun upstairs porch to relax on and cheap beer in the cooler, Chew House has a chilled out vibe. Set back from the noise of Ari, Chew House is a small, wooden guesthouse with six rooms and a lot of charm. The doubles aren’t a bad deal for the neighbourhood, but the dorm beds are a bit expensive. Bathrooms are clean and have warm water, breakfast and Wi-fi are included. Close to all the... Read our full review of Chew House.
A good choice for mature budget travellers and flashpackers, the Mid Bangkok fluorescent wall murals and over-the-top decor in favour of a minimalist Thai theme that’s both soothing and functional. It may not be the cheapest hostel in town, but it’s the only one in the vibrant Victory Monument vicinity. Classy hostel in a cool part of town. The hostel offers eight or six-bed dorm rooms in...

The fresh and breezy rooms are a good size for this price range and each has a bathtub. The Superior rooms all come with a balcony looking out over the soi and beyond...

Entering the Pullman you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd wandered into a modern art museum. The enormous, high ceilinged glass cube which makes up the lobby area sets the tone for the rest of the hotel. On the fourth floor a glass swimming pool hangs precariously over the secluded garden courtyard below. The rooms are spacious, clean, stylish and include a generously sized bath tub in the...

Situated in an “everyday Bangkok” sort of neighbourhood, Udee Hostel is a three-year-old budget spot that doesn’t lack style. While not a good choice if you want to be in the middle of the action, Udee should fit the bill for flashpackers and budget travellers seeking a quiet and sophisticated guesthouse away from the tourist hot spots. One classy hostel. The area around Saphan Khwai BTS... Read our full review of Udee Bangkok.
