Condotel, Chatuchak

At 750 baht a night, this hotel offers better amenities than other hotels for the same price. Away from the tourist areas, Saphan Kwai is ideally located for easy access to Don Mueang airport (by Taxi).

Rikka Inn, Khao San Road


For 1000 baht a night this is a great little hotel. The place is decorated in a way that reflects Thailand in the 60-80s giving the rooms a Thai classic contemporary feel.

Bangkok Lodging

Perception of hotels is such a personal thing. It’s surprising how many people can have different interpretations of the same situation. For instance, some people are appalled that a hotel room doesn’t have a window, but other people love it because they know they can sleep in total darkness, as late as they like, without the sun glaring through.


Some things people leave in online reviews are somewhat laughable. Standards can be poor in Thailand, especially if your booking somewhere cheap. There's not a lot in the way of customer service and quite often when you complain, there'll be lots of embarrassment and not much will be get done.


Reading reviews on hotel booking sites are, of course, still important in your decision making, but some people have bad experiences while others find the same place delightful. Some of the hotels below are clean and quiet, which are the two basic requirements I look for in a hotel.


Bangkok isn't as cheap as you might think, and if you're looking to stay somewhere for less than 1000 baht a night, you really can't expect too much. But, there are loads of good places in that price range.
