    600 Bangkok Hotels

    I was looking for a hotel in the Pratunam area and came across the following site with a pretty comprehensive list of 600 hotels in the greater Bangkok area :

    Bangkok Hotels by Name - Hotels in Bangkok by Alphabetical Order

    Lots of photos , reviews and maps to give you a clear idea of what you're getting. No need to book via the site but might prove useful if you have family or friends arriving. Combine it with google maps street view and you can also check out the immediate area.

    I also noticed that a lot of the hotels I use are not on this list ( The Rex for example ) so this list is by no means exhaustive.

    I am also a fan of the REX, Thong Lor opposite site, the best of the old 60's hotels. Stayed there many a time.

    This and old and trusted Thailand booking site. They say no. Still cheap as chips though if you are into retro and some savings.

    I had a few relatives staying at the Rex a couple of years back ( recently renovated ).
    It took us 2 hours to get across Bangkok from Bangyai by which time it was raining heavily. We therefore all agreed to eat in the hotels coffee shop and I wasn't expecting it to be very good.

    I was wrong. The food was excellent and the fried crab rice was the best I've ever had. A really pleasant surprise and we were glad we hadn't gone elseware.

    Even before I'd stayed at the Rex, I knew one day I would. It's the retro feel to the place. I paid 1000 a night in 2008. Nice coffee shop as well.
