Hotel in a unique part of Bangkok?

Posted by carelesswhisker on 15/8/2012 at 16:21

Hi folks. Could anyone recommend a place for me and my wife (at around 1000 to 2000 baht per night) in a unique, non-touristic part of Bangkok?

I've stayed in Sathorn, Silom, China town and most parts of Sukhumvit on previous trips. Looking for something with lots of style but (in the mid range/flashpacker bracket) with a more local feel to the neighborhood.

Open to all suggestions! Thanks!

another option could be KT Guesthouse. it has a pool, comfy rooms, and a good restaurant downstairs. more flashpacker than mid-range, but still great value for money. check it out at:

it is in the din daeng/huay kwang area of bangkok, on a few different bus lines and not too far from the subway. most interesting, it is walking distance from the huay kwang local market. i've stayed there several times now and enjoy the feel of the local neighborhood. you'll see a good mix of western and thai/asian guests at the hotel itself, but the neighborhood is all thailand. cheers.

Try both Baan Tepa and Baan Dinso - the boutique hostels

Baan Tepa is in Dusit and Baan Dinso is in the Old City (both convenient to Khao San Road, but also far enough away to be quiet and local)
