I need a hotel a stones throw from Lumphini Park and the Sky Train but cant afford the Dusit Thani.......(looking at 2000 baht a night). Any suggestions ? Thanks Paul
You might look at Swiss Lodge, Ibis Sathorn or Premier Residence.
try charlie guest house at soi ngam duphli or any other guest house around there,,not far from lumphini park and mrt lumphini station and BTS silom station
Another good one is located right behind the old American embassy on Soi Ruam Rudee and about 1.5 blocks away from Lumpini's front gate, Jim's Lodge, usally around 1200B I think, well managed and clean, stayed there many times, good location.
Good luck and have fun
Although not near the BTS, Ibis Sathorn is near the MRT (which connects to the BTS one stop away) and is a short walk to Lumpini Park. The Inn Saladaeng, which is behind the Dusit Thani, is within walking distance of both the park and the BTS. www.theinnsaladaeng.com Both should fit within your budget.
Have a good visit.
Thanks everyone.........the Inn Saladaeng is a perfect fit!
'Take a Nap:The sleeping room' hostel and budget hotel in Bangkok city, Thailand, offers great value, friendly backpacker and budget accommodation in central of Bangkok City. It has a great central location, and is really only a few minutes walk from both the sky train(BTS) and subway(MRT). It's also close to the city center, night clubs, markets and many sights. Our hostel is located at Rama 4 Street, near Silom and Surawongse Street, CBD of Bangkok City and is a wonderful spot for backpackers to base themselves.
my friends and i are going to Bangkok a few months from now, I was wondering if you guys have any recommended hotels around 1000THB with good facilities and very accessible. And preferably a quite enjoyable hotel (doesn't have to be a fancy hotel):D
Search "wendy house bangkok" or "suk11 bangkok".
Both are very convenient.
try searching for Calypzo hotel bangkok on the net. Close to MRT and price is good...new hotel too.
Every time I visit Bangkok we always stay in First House Hotel in Pratunam it is 1000thb/night with buffet breakfast and in the center of Bangkok were you can buy almost every thing in cheaper price like in chatuchack, book online in asia travel hope it help
You might consider the rather recently opened Hotel Ibis Sathorn (http://www.ibishotel.com/gb/hotel-6537-hotel-ibis-sathorn-bangkok/index.shtml). Their rates begin at B850. The new hotel is a short walk to the Lumpini subway station and to the Lumpini Night Bazaar. The neighborhood is not sleazy and is tourist-friendly with convenient restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
I recently stayed at the Bhiman Inn Hotel on Phra Sumen Road. Breakfast was included, staff were nice, and there is a pool. Its near Phra Athrit wharf, and Kho San road. Easy to walk around the old area from here. It is quiet but night life a short walk away. I have photos and more details under hotels on my Bangkok page. They also have their own website you can have a look at.

Ibis siam hotel is located nearby pratunam area . Been staying in this hotel twice. A nice budget hotel with clean rooms .
Hi! Maybe you can try searching for the room rate through their website ! Hope that you will have a enjoyable stay !
Taxis are extremely cheap in Bangkok, just make sure you use the metered ones.
Transportation within the city is also easy with the sky train (BTS)easily accessible from many points in the city center.
There are two lines: the Sukhumvit Line and the Silom Line.
Their hours of operation are between 6:00am and 12 midnight.
We were there twice and have been able to walk to markets, take the BTS or take taxis and never had a problem.
Your private driver would probably cost a little more, have much "down time" waiting for you (not practical) and, worse, they'd probably be trying to steer you towards buying at shops and stores he will be receiving a commission from.
This brings me to another point; Tuk Tuks, although popular in Bangkok should be approached with caution.
Make sure YOU establish where YOU want to go.
Make sure YOU are the one to initiate contact with them.
DO NOT feel bad about telling the driver you plan on getting off and not paying him if he steers you away from your planned destination (many tuk tuk drivers will make frequent stops at a friend's or relatives shop and then pressure you into buying as they are getting a kick back.
There are additional tips on our pages if you want to have a look.

Actually, if you want to stay at a hotel near the night market, then there is an brand-new Ibis hotel even nearer, less than a 10 minute walk to the night bazaar and to the Lumpini subway station (in BKK, the key to getting around is to stay near a subway or skytrain station). It is the Ibis Sathorn. They had an introductory rate of about Baht 900 per night. Go to the Accor website to get the latest rates.
I believe there MIGHT be a halal restaurant at the Malaysia Hotel, which is across the street from the Ibis Sathorn.
