    Hotels/guest houses in Bangkok

    Anyone know of a modest hotel or guest house not too far from the Ploen Chit BTS station? Nothing fancy, just clean and fairly quiet. Price? I dunno. 600/700 baht? Is that possible these days? I just want something convenient to get to. I won't be spending much time there.

    ask luigi - apparently he stays in 500 baht shoeboxes in soi 8

    though getting below 1k baht in lower suk is a bit hard

    i've filtered Agoda for rooms near Phloen Chit BTS.

    BTS Phloen Chit Hotels

    I'd up your budget personally, for that money you have a good chance of opening the curtains and getting a palmful of Luigis jizz, or worse, you could catch an eyeful

    The budget can be higher. I hadn't realised exactly where Ploen Chit is. Somewhere a couple or so BTS stops away would also be OK, though walking distance is preferred.

    Thanks, Dil. Some of the cheaper ones on there look a bit rough, to say the least!

    Asia Inn on soi 1 is good value and about 2 blocks from Ploenchit station. I think it's about 900 baht now.

    Ploenchit - guess you're off to the embassy then

    Difficult to get 600/700 next to that - but if you can stretch to 3000 I have a condo on the doorstep for rent

    Otherwise try soi 22

    Hotel 27 (2nd small soi up from suk on 22) is a short time hotel that will give you an overnight room for that price.

    200m further up the road (1st left after the Queens Park hotel) you'll find Soms guest house. They have a fan room for 500/600bt a night

    Ekamai 23 which is farther out but a 100bt cab ride has Hi-Tec Tower. Air con rooms and a pool on the roof - 600bt including breakfast.

    ^ it's really dark down that end, full of thieving, menacing, ball groping ladyboys too. You don't wanna be walking down there in the early hours.

    Shit, I lived at the Omni for years and never saw any of that kind of stuff. There is a Warburi Hotel down there, at least there used to be, that is quite cheap.
