    Will be visiting Bangkok April 09 and was wondering if anyone can recommend or otherwise the Swan Inn on Sukhumvit Soi 4 or the Thai House Inn just off Sukhumvit Road on Soi 7. I am looking for accommodation around the 700-1000 baht range.

    If you read thorntree forum of LP, you know I am completely baffled as to why anyone would choose to stay near Nana skytrain stop. The worst of Bangkok. I recommend the old city or the skytrain line from the river to National Stadium (Siam Sq) if you prefer to be near the BTS/MRT.

    I won't go into all that here as I have said much on TT.

    I have been staying at the Honey Hotel, Suk soi 19, near Asoke skytrain/subway stops. Sound like a contradiction but I stay on Suk only because our house is near there. The Honey has rooms for 800, 900, 1000 and 1350. We prefer the 800 bht rooms (incl 1 breakfast)in the parking garage because it is cool like a celler and the marble/granite floors hold the cool temp. The only advantage of the more expensive rooms is the fridge. With 7/11 next door it isn't necessary. The big advantage of the Honey is the swimming pool open to 10:30pm. I hate when hotels close the pool at 6pm as many do.

    Agree with Kevin on the Honey Hotel.Always used to stay there but haven't for a while simply because we've got a flat in Bangkok now.Staff always friendly,good coffee shop,the pool and pretty well priced.Whenever I'm in Bangkok always go there for a BLT sandwich.

    Well to continue my theme, Wendy is the only one you name (I think, that falls into the areas
    that I recommend. Take a look at the travelfish page on Soi Kasem San 1. That is great for the skytrain because it is near both skytrain lines. If you stay on Suk, you have to transfer at Siam Square to get to the river and most sightseeing. It is right near Jim Thompson's house. It has the bonus of being on the canal where you get fast cheap boats and avoid traffic.
