Where to Stay in Bangkok?
There are a plethora of cheap hotels in Bangkok, and the good news is you don’t have to compromise on quality to secure a cheap rate.For £40-£50 (around 2000-2500THB), you can stay in a central location, with easy access to the many amenities of the city centre.
The greatest concentration of Bangkok hotels is around the Sukhumvit area, where you can stay in a 4- or 5-star property for less than £80 per night, while remaining close to the best shops, restaurants and bars.The historical Ratanakosin district, west of the centre, is great for temple spotting, if you’re looking for culture.
Alternatively, select to stay in the slightly seedy Patpong if you’re keen to secure a discount hotel close to the top-notch nightlife.For a budget option, opt for the Khoa San Road where Bangkok backpackers tend to congregate for the great selection of affordable hostels, magnificent markets and superb street food.
Bangkok Accommodation Options
While there are plenty of cheap hotel rooms to be had in Bangkok, if you’re looking for a clean and convenient spot, it is still worth booking in advance. If you are on a tight budget, the cheapest accommodation can be found in the hostels dotted around town.
However, if you’re looking to treat yourself, Thailand’s capital city is an affordable place to do so with 5-star properties often on offer for under £80 a night.
There are usually some good last-minute hotel deals to be found if you are flexible, and prices for Bangkok accommodation are generally flexible so do haggle to secure the best rate.
Bangkok Hotel Recommendations?
If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury, you could try the Peninsula Bangkok located in Klongsan for contemporary chic or the Dusit Thani Bangkok for a more traditional experience. Alternatively, The Niras Bankoc Boutique Hostel is a good budget option, with a private double en suite room for a tuppence.The 4-star Eastin Bangkok on Makkasan Road offers swish rooms, great views and an outdoor pool with great discounted rates, leaving plenty of leftover cash for a Thai massage in the hotel spa.
Transport in Bangkok
Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport is the main hub for all international and domestic flights in and out of the capital. It's 18 miles east of the city, but the journey time from Bangkok airport into town varies massively depending on the traffic. Expect a 40-90-minute ride. The city's larger hotels offer pickup services for a fee, but the airport has public taxi, limousine and bus services to Bangkok. Taking a taxi into town is your easiest and fastest option. No Bangkok holiday would be complete without a trip in a ‘tuk-tuk’, so if you opt to take a bus into town, hop in one of these to take you to your front door.
