    Hi All,
    I'm wanting to book my first night accommodation in Bangkok when i arrive mid October. I'm hoping to find a reasonably priced guesthouse or something like. I will only be staying 1 night then catching the train in the morning, so something near the train station would be good. Does anyone recommend any that able you to book over the internet?

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    Hi tuckere,

    Shambara is the most popular place that can be booked online -- and its a great little spot. If they're full I'd suggested trying one of the Sawasdee guesthouses as they have heaps of rooms and can all be booked online.

    The above are mostly in the Khao San Rd area -- I don't know of anywhere near the train station that is both cheap and can be booked online sorry -- perhaps have a browse through our Bangkok listings and see if you can get one to settle for an email reservation -- Riverside Guesthouse is a great spot with terrific river views - could be worth a try.

    Hope that helps

    Hostel Thailand is within comfortable walking distance of the Chong Nonsi BTS station. You can even walk to the Saladaeng Station. It's adequate for one night, and they accept bookings made through Hostel Asia or Hostel world.

    Another hostel getting rave reviews is Urban Age, which is fairly new. I haven't stayed there, but I'm considering it when I go back to Bangkok. It's near the Saladaeng station as well in Silom (the business district)

    We had good luck at both Thai Cozy in the greater Khao San Rd area, and PS Guesthouse on Sukhumvit Soi 8. Both offer very comfy flashpacker quality rooms in the 900 baht per night range. Thai Cozy has a 24-hour desk, which is great for those late arriving flights from north America (via Tokyo). PS Guesthouse is right on the BTS skytrain as well as fairly close to the new subway, which makes it easy to take the subway to the Hualamphong train station. Regards.

    Hi,

    I havent stayed here, but have found a place we are thinking of using (as it is close to train station) . It is called the Train Inn. www.thetraininn.com - it is straight across the road from the main station. It looks decent on the website!

    Wow! The Train Inn looks pretty funky. Love those hallway lights.
