    Hello, where to stay in bangkok for 2 nights?

    Getting there this Friday afternoon, looking for somewhere central, clean, cheap with air-con (not sure if hotwater is needed this time of the year).

    Could you please post some areas in town and some hotels/guest houses/ hostels if you can?

    We should be landing around 5pm... better to get a cab from the airport?

    Thanks!

    Most backpackers, especially first-timers stay in the Khao San Road / Banglamphu area.

    Closer to the airport but not as budget-minded is the long Sukhumvit Road with tons of accommodation and a bit more international flair and sleeze factor.

    Take a metered taxi from outside the ground level of the airport, or use the new airport link to connect with the BTS/Skytrain

    My friends and I like lubd in Silom. More in the flashpacker price range. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Yes, there is hot water.
    Check www.lubd.com


    Fairly close to Hualomphong train station (if it matters to you). A short walk to the BTS station. The downside is that going to the tourist sites requires you to commute.

    If you land at 5PM, consider the train.

    If you choose to go to lubd, there is an airport express bus that will stop near the sofitel hotel on silom road. It is about an 5 minute walk from sofitel to lubd. That bloody hotel has a Lenotre pastry shop and I had to exercise my willpower every time I walked by.

    Get a hotel with a pool. Good idea in Bangkok. So hot and humid there.

    Admiral Suites Sukhumvit is nice. Good rooms, pool and gym. Fairly quiet place and breakfast next door at the restaurant with free internet each day for 1 hour. 10 min walk to skytrain.

    Bangkok City Suite is cheaper but no pool and busy road. Short taxi to shopping malls.

    Ramada D'ma has great breakfast, good rooms and nice big pool and sauna. In Pratunam near loads of shopping malls.
