Bangkok accommodation recommendation?

Posted by ellenagger on 23/8/2009 at 17:35

We're looking for a nice place to stay for a few days in BKK. Near Skytrain. Around 600 Baht. Good neighbourhood for street food/markets. No backpacker places, please. Fan is fine, as is shared bathroom. We're hoping to find a place we like for future visits as well. Recommendations welcome.

I'm wondering if you checked out the Travelfish 'accommodation' reviews? If not try:

1. sathorn area

2. Siam Sq & surrounds

3. Sukhumvit Road area

4. near Sukhumvit Road

Cheers

Ellen,

Hey, serendipity, I was just mentioning someone from Halifax about you.
How's the textile huants?
Anyways, if you find a great place for 600Bs, I'd be interested too.
