    Well I,ve been persuaded to visit the village in Isan and arrive in Suvannabhumi at around 7p.m. We are booking the train for 0545 next morning so decided to stay near the station. Looking on the search facility here it doesn't sound promising. I don't mind a fan room.I don't mind basic but I DO demand a clean place that isn't known for 'short time.' Can anybody help?

    no. You first say quiet and then tell something else.
    There simply is NO quiet solitude around that station.
    Why not hop over by taxi to the Mochit and take one of the scores of overnight buses that will also serve your destination?

    http://www.hualamponghotel.com/ I stayed here, it's cheap. But there are nicer places on the same street. I love taking the train, so that's what I'd do.

    There are several guesthouses that meet your requirements in the Lumphini Station region, such as Madam Guesthouse (and several others)...they are situated on their own little lane, quite safe and quiet, rooms for 2-300 baht with bathroom outside/in. A 10 minute 10 baht bus ride to Hua Lamphong, (it's a 5 minute walk to the bus stop, #4) or 45 baht taxi ride. The rooms I found at these guesthouses were nicer and a bit lower priced than the guesthouses nearby the train station, and you'll probably save what you pay on the taxi to stay there. There are also a number of decent Indian-run guesthouses in the Pahurat area, such as Candy Inn 02-2230182 and others; that's where I stay in Bangkok, again a short 10 baht bus ride or 40 baht taxi to Hua Lamphong, but both areas I think are nicer than what's right around Hua Lamphong and hence worth the taxi ride in my opinion.

    Well, I meant quiet in the sense of no working girls coming in and out all night.
    Also, I love that diesel train that takes 8 hours much less stressful than a night bus IMO.

    that diesel sprinter is much more comfortable and safer too.

    sayadian, will you let us know where you stayed and how it was? i've never stayed that close to hualamphong before and appreciated the above suggestions.

    have a good time visiting the village. cheers.

    Will do Exacto. I'll try and take into account jetlag and the fact we'll probably only get about 6 hours sleep and not be unkind to the hotel.

    There's a good one at Rama IV road (Bangkok Centre Hotel) (haven't stayed their myself but met up with some friends and they said it was good)

    You just walk from Hua Lampong (main entrance) into the other direction (Rama IV road: the big one), cross the street en go to the left (stay on Rama IV), it's just on your right side then.
