Large-scale budget quality, great location
A short walk from the monument and a plethora of restaurants and nightclubs, the Chaophaya is a large hotel that boasts decent rooms at decent rates.
All rooms come with air-con, hot water, cable TV, and a fridge, and though the bathrooms are a little worn, the rooms are well-kept overall. They even feature some interesting touches for those who appreciate that tacky Thai sensibility -- on the wall of one room we found a breathtaking framed picture of a horse running on water. The staff are friendly and professional, and they offer 24 hour room service to go with free WiFi. There’s also a large sports bar and Japanese restaurant on site. For its location and value, the Chaophaya is a good choice.
