    Recommend sub 500 baht hotels / rooms in Bangkok

    Any tips from our economical members for cheap accommodation in bangkok ?

    I have a friend from madagascar who is going to Thailand and wants to scout out buying / selling to and from madagascar.

    Fan rooms are ok , but security is important.

    KSR? Even then he's gonna have to search the sidestreets, but easy to get a bus (42 I think) down to Chinatown or the boat down the river to pier 5; 30 baht or so.

    My first room in KSR was only 70bt a night. There must still be a bargain to be had down there.

    KT Guesthouse is a quiet, nice, and safe place if your friend can spring for another 50 baht a night.

    Couldn't remember the name of guesthouse near the train station I've used years ago, but came across this one while searching for it.

    Baan Hualampong guest house Thai guesthouse Cheap Bangkok Hostel Hualamphong accommodation Thailand cheap Gasthaus

    Looks ok for 290 baht a night.

    There is a place just opposite the penny black in Cowboy that does rooms for 200 baht I think. You can only stay for 3 hours but they might let you have 8 hours for 500 baht!

    I didn't mention that place because the OP started with the word,Recommend.

    I am a bit out of the picture but a few short time pits come to mind, the Crown in Sukumvit, already mentioned, hotel 27 but even my low standards took a hit there.
    Near to FPs place in Ekamai a few short time dumps there catering for the hiso night places.
    Sort time places abound, most are tolerable, if you don't mind vynal sheets.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    Just reviewing the hotels that klong toey posted, not many there that I haven't tried out over the years.
    Even if the need took the back seat in the car would suffice in a pinch.
    I always was a bit of a romantic.

    Go past the Malaysia hotel, chuck a left at the 7/11, 100 yards further a small soi on the right with a few budget guest houses: safe, secure, clean-ish, comfortable-ish.....sub 300 bhat...one's called Madame guest house...it's alright, not a knocking shop! Ain't the Ritz, but

    What sort of buying and selling? If it's clothing, maybe better for him to stay in Pratunam area, or Bobae market... Khao San is not convenient to anything commercial, especially if there are protests going on.

    There are hotels in the bowels of the Pratunam market (e.g. one close to the end of Phetchaburi Soi 19, end of the first lane into the market on the left coming from Phetchaburi) that offer 500 baht/night rates. Those bottom-end places won't be advertising online, most likely.

    Another option is one of the many curtain hotels (rong raem man root). They typically offer one hour stays for 100-200 baht, and daily rate was ~450 or when I asked.

    If people really have no choice there are a couple of places around Hua Lamphong used by Cambo and Myanmar workers that you could get for 100/150 a night 5 or 6 years ago, and I have no reason to suspect prices are much higher these days.
