Cheap AC-accommodation in Bangkok?

Posted by tfuser on 13/6/2010 at 16:25

Where can I get the cheapest AC-room in bangkok?

And where is the best places to shop cheap clothes? (and good tips on cheap accommodation close to these places, AC or no AC)

Don't know if it is the cheapest, but the A-one inn hotel is pretty cheap with AC. It is located just around the corner of the MBK shopping mall where you can get cheap clothes. There should also be a clothes market nearby but I don't know exactly where that is.

Thanks for the tips tinoh!

A-one didn't have very good reviews but he location seems perfect!
And 600 bath is as low you can get a AC-room in BKK? (Even after the demonstrations?)

But wasn't it around MBK the demonstrations had its core?

All the rooms at SUK 11 are A/C. They don't do cheap dorms any more but you can get a single for 500B/night (includes buffet breakfast). Very handy for transport as the skytrain and MRT are both within walking distance.

There are probably cheaper options around Khao San Road though.

Yes it was at MBK where the demonstration ended. We were in the A one inn at the end of april and the you could see the blokkade from MBK.

you find 600 baht cheap for AC-room? I'd go on the main road next to kao san and go further untill you reach a lot of hotels/guesthouses where you can get AC-rooms for about 300 baht.

also depends on how long you are staying in BKK if you're staying for more then a month, I'd consider renting a place somewhere nearby Chatuchack for about 6000 baht a month (AC-rooms)

Bamboo Guest House, Baan Hua Lampong Guesthouse, Riverview Guesthouse or Donna Guesthouse are among the cheap ones. You find their adresses, an overview of Guesthouses in Bangkok with reviews and a link to a Bangkok Guesthouse Google Map on http://traveltobangkok.blogspot.com/2008/02/bangkok-guesthouse.html

Happy Inn is 600 baht for a room with A/C, hot water, cable TV and private toilet. No website!

Below is a map from a Orchid Hotel website (also a source of hotels that are not high priced and have air) look for Orchid Inn 20/6. Happy Inn is next door. They have an internet shop in the front area. Some rooms better than others, elevator available. Not far from the Skytrain stop, supermarkets, malls, street vendors, nightlife and restaurants.

Use the Skytrain to take you to Chatuchak Weekend Market, MBK, Asia Hotel where you get off and walk down to Phetchaburi Road for more shopping. Use the Skytrain to take you to Patpong Night Market and many other areas.

In Pattaya it is easy to find a hotel with air, hot water, private toilet and TV at 500 baht! Local transportation there is only 10 baht too! Lots of malls, etc.

Good luck.
