Posted by anmi212 on 2/4/2008 at 21:25

Hi all-

I'm looking for a nice but affordable hotel in the Kho san/rambruttri area with an outdoor pool. Am thinking something in the $60-$85 USD range (although less is good too :-)). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!!!!

The royal hotel is an old favourite. Its got a pool, is just off kosan (good if you ask me) and near the grand palace.

Hey-

Thanks for the suggestions but now we're thinknig that we may stay in Sukhumvit instead. Any suggestions on good hotels there in the $50-$80 range with outdoor pools and near public transport and nightlife??

Thanks so much!!!

God you are rich! Usually lots of young tourists want a place for only $10 and close to everything!

Near the Nana Skytrain you can check out the Swiss Park Hotel, Grande Business Inn and even the Ambassador. All three are on or off Sukhumvit Soi 11.

You can check out the Asia Hotel, it is off a Skytrain stop. This is a mainly "no bar" area if that is important. Not in the Sukhumvit area but with the Skytrain you can get to many places. Easy walk to shopping on nearby Phetchaburi Road.

A cheaper hotel you might want to check out is the Fortuna Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 5 (next to Foodland Supermarket.)

A cheaper hotel that you might want to look at if you want to save money and be close to things on Sukhumvit is the Atlanta Hotel. This place does not allow men or women to take their "date of the day" into the rooms! If you are married and you are not planning on a "menage a trois" with a "rental date" they will let you stay there! Old fashioned type hotel, not far from the Landmark Hotel. Church nearby.

Book one night or two and look around for a different place if you want.

lol. We're really not rich...well at least I'm not. I've always done the hostel thing in the past (have stayed in my share of Sawasdees)..just looking for a bit of bump up this trip. Plus we're splitting the cost and are only going to be in Bangkok for 2 nites...then off to Hanoi.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. I am actually leaning towards something more in the Manhattan or Swiss park range. They seem like good places with everything we're looking for in good price ranges.

Anyone know anything else similar or have suggestions/recommendations as to those 2?

Again thanks!!!! I really appreciate all the help.

I take it you've already looked at our accommodation listings for the area you're considering?
