Western tourists may be distracted by looking for cheap hotels in Bangkok. Basic accommodation standard ideas vary depending on where you come from. Hiram և Heath’s from Houston can expect better facilities than Han’s from Hanoi, or even Henrogy և Anna’s from Harrogate (UK). Let me guide you. Be sure to stay luxurious in the Western style in one of the most familiar Western chains. The only problem is that they can be very expensive. Let’s say you stay in Bangkok at the Huntington or Marriott, you can be in New York, London or Cairo.
You want to stay in Bangkok, right? The good news is that there are many independent hotels in Bangkok that offer reasonable standards for comfortable accommodation. After all, who needs a wardrobe? Hangers are a big part, aren’t they?
You will probably know that Bangkok is the capital and primary city of Thailand. It is called in Thai Krung Thep Maha Nakhon: (or: Krung Thep: in a word, meaning “city of angels”). Bangkok has a population of over six million. The predominant religion is Buddhism, practiced by all but 5% of the city’s population. Most of the rest are Muslims with a scattering of Christians. Bangkok is a winter block with temples and gardens, plus a prosperous (let’s not forget) industry. One of the strengths of Bangkok is the fascinating blend of ancient Thai culture with Western-style capitalism.
This is my personal choice for the best cheap hotel (Bangkok).
The side of the New Siam River
21 Soi Chanasongkram Phra-A-Thit Road, Chanasongkram, Phranakorn, Bangkok 10200:
Here is the house of the hotel with wonderful views, located on the Chaofaya River, near the Grand Palace. Fully air-conditioned, contains a coffee bar, a proper restaurant, a large swimming pool. As in many good hotels in Thailand, the beds are made of foam rubber. Each room is equipped with bedside control, cable TV and refrigerator. High speed Wi-Fi is available in all rooms. Not all rooms are smoking.
Relax when booking, as the banks of the New Siam River have two branches. Room prices start from 1390 baths (single). In one of the other hotels, the air-conditioned room starts at just $ 590 ($ 20). )
Silom City Hotel
2 Soi Prachum (Silom 22), Silom Road, Bangkok 10500:
Formerly known as the Silom City Inn, this hotel is located in the middle of Bangkok’s business district, close to every key shopping center. Silom’s is a short walk from major nightlife spots, such as Swan Lumpini Park, Bangkok Railway Terminal and River. It has 70 living rooms, all of which have air conditioning, a private closet, computer և fax connections, music system inside, color satellite TV և bathroom with rooms. The advertised weekly price starts at 1,150 baht (about $ 40) per night, but we are told it is possible to ship.
920-926 Rama4 Rd. (Surawongse junction, opposite the Red Cross Society), Silom District, Bangrak 10500,
The family, called TakeANap, is a family-run hotel with its own fan base. There is a mix of single, double և dormitory rooms starting at 350 bars per night ($ 12). Singles come in about $ 1,000 ($ 34). Great for backpacks, not so good for business travelers or tourist families. 30 single- double rooms are all decorated with different themes, most of them are designed to give you a headache after a lot of beer. TakeANap is very central, just a few meters from the sky train (BTS) և subway (MRT). TakeaNap is close to nightclubs, city center and market area. Wardrobe emissions should indicate that the rooms come with their favorite furniture items, but hangers և by rail. You will also be very lucky to get a refrigerator,
Place of Sivala
168 Isaraphab Soi 33 Isaraphab r Thra Pra Bangkok-Yai Bangkok 10600 Thailand
This apartment offers a huge value for everyone on a budget. Their smart studio homes range from $ 1,450 baht (under $ 50) per night, and double-entry apartments cost just over 100 baht. Wait for the queen-size beds բաղ bathroom bath, with showers equipped with six (count them) massage planes. The amenities are better than the average in Bangkok, from a fully stocked karaoke room to tennis, restaurants, cafes, and a huge chlorine-free pool, which is replaced by an ecologically clean O-zone non-chemical filtration system. Then there is the sauna, the “good karma” library, and the well-stocked games room. Sivala Palace is highly recommended.
These are some of the cheap hotels in Bangkok. Have a great time, let me know if you find any other diamonds.
