One of several Bangkok hotels run by the Compass Hospitality group, Legacy Express is a good choice for flashpackers seeking a clean and comfy room in a very convenient location -- and little else.

Photo of Legacy Express Bangkok
While the name and facade says “chain hotel” loud and clear, the rooms are done up with fun swirl-pattern pillows on good-quality mattresses, modern carpets, framed photos of old Bangkok scenes and good-size bathrooms with hot-water rain-showers partitioned behind glass doors. Everything is modern and the rooms we saw were immaculate. The cheapest rooms come in at 27 square metres, with large windows, desks, mini-fridges, safes and LCD TVs. Deluxe editions are virtually identical but with a little more space, while triple rooms present good value for families. The hotel lacks common facilities other than a Moroccan-themed restaurant and free WiFi, but guests can use the swimming pool at the nearby Aspen Suites. The receptionist we met was cheerful and the guard who first greeted us and later showed us the rooms was one of the friendlier people we’ve met on Sukhumvit. He’ll hold the front door as you head outside, where you’ll find a 24-hour 7-eleven and a Dominos Pizza right next to the hotel. Street food carts set up on neighbouring Sukhumvit Soi 1, and Phloen Chit BTS station is a two-minute hop away. Expect 300 to 700 baht discounts at most times of year if booking online.
