Bangkok - 1 month stay

Posted by banjara on 17/4/2007 at 11:35

Posted from within Vietnam.

I am going to attend a course in Bangkok near Siam Square in May and am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for somewhere on the Chitlom/Ploenchit side - either a guesthouse of studio - my budget is about THB 18,000-22,000 for the month.

Any suggestions most appreciated, thanks.

hi banjara,

i'm afraid that the places i used to stay in the chitlom/ploenchit area are now way more than the THB 22K/month amount. there is a place called PS Guesthouse on Sukhumvit Soi 8 you might want to check out. that would only be a short skytrain ride from the areas you mention.

we stayed at PS last summer for several nights and loved it. large, charming rooms for about 900 baht/night. i imagine you may be able to negotiate a lower rate for an extended stay. PS Guesthouse is listed on Travelfish if you'd like more details. you can contact them via email and they usually respond quickly. cheers.

Following on from this, I too will be in Bangkok for a month (August in my case), same area of the city, and would also welcome recommendations for apartments/studios, either specific ones or reputable agencies. Again, any help would be much appreciated.

Just a few stops up the Skytrain is House by the Pond -- we lived there (in a studio) for a few months when first moved to Bangkok -- it's comfortable, clean and well managed -- and has a roof top pool with terrific views. The studio rates start at 19,500B a month. The rooms are all serviced daily -- no need to pick your dirty socks up off the floor ;-)

As somtam says, take te skytrain and go a little bit outside the main area.
Some good hotels and condo's are available at good prices.

I had a condo in Chatuchack (take the metro-station, you can find it under the hua lampong train station, and take it to the last stop). I stayed in that condo for free because it was from a good friend but I think he paid about 15000 baht a month for it. twin bed room, bathroom and balcony. no kitchen or whatever but you don't really need that in thailand cause te food on the street is the best there is.

so: best tip: get out of bkk a little bit and search your way around.

You can get a hotel in the Sukhumvit Road area for around 600 baht a night and just take the Skytrain to your classes. This will be a hotel room with air, hot water, private toilet, cable TV, maid service and close to restaurants and shopping. Some hotels will give you a good deal for longer stays, especially in the low season. Buy a hot plate if you want to heat something up.

Good luck.

Near Chitlom you can try and ask for monthly rates at Sawasdee Inn in Soi Lang Suan.
Quite a few people stay there for longer periods of time; check out: http://www.sawasdeelangsuaninn.com/
