Bangkok accommodations

Posted by anmi212 on 16/10/2007 at 23:15

Hi,

I need a place to stay in Bangkok for 2 or 3 nites at the beginning of the trip. maybe somewhere near (but prolly not on) khao san road. it's my boyfriend's first time in thailand so i thought he should have the whole khao san road experience but not so sure i want to actually stay on it again. looking for anything up to about $40 USD or so but of course the cheaper the better. oh, and if possible, we'd love a private bathroom.

any suggestions???

Thanks!!!!

Hi anmi,if you can get away from khao san rd,my wife and i are staying again at the ruamchitt travelodge in sukhumvit,next march.i thinks it's about 1200baht per night with a/c private bathroom etc.also pretty close to skytrain if you want to get somewhere quickly and avoid the traffic,

How about New Siam II? Really close to Khao San but on a quiet street. I have no complaints about the room or staff. New Siam II profile on Travelfish

Try Rambuttri Village Inn on Soi Rambuttri just off Khao San Rd, really nice and clean. Got a air conditioned room with private bathroom for 800baht a night.

another vote for New Siam II
clean, well run, good value, convenient to river transportation and restaurants/bars out on Th Phra Athit, easy walk to KSR.

Another vote for New Siam 2. Great location. The best banana pancakes and coffee for breakfast. Yummy mango and banana shakes, great pool, clean rooms... close to Khao San but away from the madness!

Posted from within Vietnam.

Try Rambuttri Road which has some ok accomadation.
Rambuttri Village Inn and Lamptu(spelling could be wrong) are decent places. around 600-700 Thai Bhat. really nice and clean. Got a air conditioned room with private bathroom for 800baht a night. Rambutti Rd is a road just off khao san road

Has anyone stayed at Lamphuhouse before? Any idea if the reception is open 24 hours, as I won't be arriving there until around midnight.

turns out Lamphuhouse is full and they also are not open after 6pm. Any other suggestions?

Have you tried New Siam 2 as suggested?! They are able to be booked online, they have a 24 hr reception desk and are awesome. Highly recommended - www.newsiam.net

New Siam II gets the thumbs up from me too. Think it was 750 baht for A/C on suite room. about 3 years ago.

Hey everyone--

We ended up staying on Rambuttri Road at the Rambuttri Village Inn--clean, A/C, private bathroom and all within our price range. We had an amazing trip(it helped a lot that we spent most of it on the beach)!!! Can't wait till the next one.

Thanks everyone for all the help and recommendations!!!
