Bangkok Hotel Recommendations
Looking for some hotel ideas. My once encyclopedic knowledge of Bangkok, alas, has faded and the years have surely shifted the landscape there.
Here's the scoop:
Lived and worked (if you were on Ajarnforum during that time I'm that Matthew) in Thailand from 2005 to 2011. Haven't been back since 2012.
We'll be staying in BKK Sunday, April 2-6 (Sunday night to Thursday) before driving down south to the wife's homestead through Songkran.
The BKK itinerary is pretty simple:
So, here's what I'm looking for in a hotel:
- NOT FANCY..and..NOT BACKPACKER BULLSHIT
- Near enough to the skytrain/subway but no need to be right in the shit
- Not too much more than 1000 baht/night?
Is this still a thing? My mind is too busy and full to remember all the places I used to like in this kind of zone, but I'm beginning to recollect as I surf around.
What say you, Teakers?
Got any tips? Ask any questions you like if I haven't provided enough info and you're interested in chatting.

Pas Cher Hotel De Bangkok
I use this place normally. Close to BTS (Saphin Taksin) and Charoen Krung. Clean, friendly, has a list and a small pool. Rooms are a bit compact (small) but are fine. Decent bathrooms with shower.

That is for the whole stay not just one night and includes breakfast. I have never had the breakfast so can't comment on it.

I normally pay about 1500 for a room when I'm there (they have offers on quite regularly) and you've got the pool and a sauna for that price too.
About 5 or 6 years ago I'm pretty sure they didn't offer anything else apart from the serviced Apts cos that was always where I ended up.

TBH ... the OP needs to also tell us what he needs in a hotel.
EG ... parking is a big issue in Bangkok ... are you driving ... because it does vary greatly and an important consideration.
Do you need Breakie?
Gym? Decent or half-assed?

matt- i think you need to get up to the 1500 level to get a the kind of room you're looking for.
there are lots of places and if you're just staying 4 nights, it might not matter more than a bed and shower. but if you have a bit of energy to get taxis and not be near the skytrain, airbnb has good places available (better rooms, great views high up, but maybe a bit out of the way where you can just call a taxi).
more conveniently located rooms in that price range would be ok to crash, but not much in terms of amenities.
we were in bkk last year and stayed at an airbnb place near on nut. called taxis to come pick up us...which although a bit annoying, made up for with their pool, quiet neighbors, and apartment feel to it.
