    I like d'Pelican Inn. But it has no pool.

    900 baht hotels aren't going to have good pools. Likely small pool or none. Some of them look like big bath tubs.

    The Golden Palace has a decent enough pool, but I don't think it will fit your 900 baht per night target. It is listed on Travelfish, so you can at least have a look and see what you think. Maybe you'll find what you are looking for while you are poking around those listings as well.

    If staying on Sukhumvit isn't critical, have a look at KT Guesthouse in the Din Daeng/Huai Kwang area. Their prices are usually less than the 900 baht you mentioned. Rooms are plain but comfortable. They have a good pool and a good restaurant, and it is in a nice working class neighborhood not too far from a traditional market and not too far from the subway. It isn't listed on Travelfish but you can google it.

    i stayed at the Miami hotel a few years back the cost then was 700 baht per night , the pool was ok but the rooms were very old and basic
    i think it was in Sukhumvit 13

    nice suggestion on the imm fusion sukhumvit. looks like it gets good reviews too. it's on the eastern end of sukhumvit, but quick enough to travel in on the skytrain if needed.

    sorry to hear about the golden palace, but not surprised. the rooms were getting a bit long in the tooth. i loved the downstairs coffee shop though.

    @krysta do you mean agoda , is this is what u mean,if yes the site is ok, but after using it few times i am not sure if you cannot get a better price direct from most hotels, the prices u see are just the 1st price , when u go to the final payment other charges are added like tax so at 1st it seams like the room is great value , then by the end maybe not so great .

    Agoda is OK- but you loose ALL money if you do not turn up or change plans.
    The low budget HTLs (and what above says- you can get easily less as half of 1000THB for good rooms-but not really in this area) most times have the same price if walk-in, book online or whatever. BIG price disocunts can mostly only be had for 4/5* HTls- those listed prices say nothing at all anyway. Also try sites like hostelbookers or hostelworld- they also do single rooms, but in bekpek-aimed places.
    Also it appears to me that Asians often have quite different ideas about HTLs as westerners-and then again different between all kinds of Aseans. What someone rec-s here may be very disappointing for them. And why even go to BKK to stay poolside?

    have a look at booking.com, they include taxes on page 1 and often have free cancellation if done 72 hours before the date. some of the others rarely if ever offer this.
