With rooms in a four-storey concrete building and a converted old house overlooking a swimming pool, Dinso Mon Hotel raised the bar for flashpacker-range accommodation in the old town after opening in 2015.

Located just south of Democracy Monument and set back from a street that hosts Bangkok City Hall along with several great eateries, Dinso Mon greets guests with a cartoonish mural alongside a short walkway. Arriving at the property, we were surprised to see a swimming pool with a few lounge chairs near a restaurant specialising in Chinese-Thai noodle soups.

Most rooms occupy the back building, an old four-floor concrete number that once served as apartments and was gutted by Dinso Mon’s designers. Reached by a lift, the good-value rooms found here are modern, clean and comfortable, with enough space to throw a cat around. Though white walls could use some decoration and you don’t get the heritage charm found at nearby places like Baan Dinso and Baan Noppawong, we like the lightwood floors and soft beds to go with TVs, desks, WiFi, kettle and fridge. The good-size bathrooms looked clean with hot-water showers set behind curtains.

Upper-floor rooms bag you views of Democracy Monument, and we appreciate how private gardens—albeit tiny ones—are accessible through sliding glass doors in the darker ground-floor rooms. Up in the smaller front building, the deluxe rooms were full during our visit but they might be worth the extra cash for more space, more windows and hardwood floors.

Rates include a simple breakfast served in the restaurant, where guests are welcome to camp out with a book or laptop without ordering anything. Two receptionists were welcoming to us and had no problem showing rooms. The setting should be just far enough off the main drags to ensure a quiet night’s sleep.

In addition to placing you near a bunch of terrific local-style eateries on Dinso Road and Tanao Road, the location is great for sightseeing. Khao San Road is a 15-minute walk to the north, Wat Suthat and the Giant Swing are a three-minute hop to the south, and bigger attractions like the Grand Palace are only a couple of kilometres to the southwest. The proximity to Democracy Monument will make it easy to find your way back to the hotel.

Across Ratchadamnoen Road on the north side of Democracy Monument, Sourire at Rattanakosin is a solid alternative with similarly straightforward but well-equipped rooms and a leafy common area rather than a pool. On the same side alley is Ratchadamnoen Residence, which we found a bit drab on our most recent inspection but does offer considerably larger apartment-style rooms in the same price range.
