Many best hotels in BKK, Let's find out for the best location and budget to stay :)
Not sure I want hotels, more hostel or guesthouses that would allow me to meet up with other backpackers...which areas of BKK is this more likely to occur?
Khao Sans Rd area of Bangkok for cheaper backpackers hotels. A friendly area where backpackers of all nationalities stay.
Lub d hostels are more upmarket hostels they have one on Surowong Rd near Silom. My son stayed there last year for 2 nights and enjoyed his stay. The other Lub d is near Siam Square where all the shoppers go.
Google Khao San Road accommodation & away you go. Heaps of options. Khao San Road area is backpacker central.
Best is in the eyes of the beholder! I prefer my own room, with my own private toilet and shower with my own TV. But I am almost an old fart now and prefer my privacy. Cheap no name hotels and small guest houses are around the same price as hostels in Bangkok and you do not have to share toilets with strangers!
Here is a few places that can be accessed by Skytrain with a short walk.
Sukhumvit Road Nana area:
Suk 11 Hostel and Soi One Guest House and Hostel. Both in Nana area. Walk to restaurants, nightlife, malls, street vendors, etc.
Lub D. Two locations. Silom and Siam.
LemonSeed seems to be popular with women travelers.
Once you leave Bangkok you don't find too many hostels available.
You will meet other people walking around, in restaurants and malls and even on tours. You can walk in and book tours through local travel agencies as you need them.
Up to you.Edited: 7:47 am, January 05, 2013
