One of Bangkok's old school hotels, this place is one of the city's more affordable luxury digs. This is a 4 star hotel for 1250 baht a night. This includes a nice buffet breakfast and free wifi. The place may have seen better days in the past, but this is still one of the better hotels in this price range.
There is also pleasant rooftop swimming pool to help recover from the hot and humid city especially after a morning wandering around Chatuchack Weekend Market which is only 20 minutes walk away, or one stop on the Skytrain.
This hotel is on Pradipat Road in the Phaya Thai area of the Greater Bangkok. This area is great for street food and the Saphan Khwai BTS station is within walking distance.
