In my six months in Thailand, I've stayed in some rough places, but this one was the worst, hands down. The price is cheap, but there are similar priced places in the area, of much better quality. My main complaint is the staff. They are so rude. They made you feel bad for asking simple questions. Our room had a...

I'm not a complainer but have also traveled enough to find the good in a place... The rooms remind me of a prison room, the service staff made me feel guilty for asking simple questions, no free wifi, no breakfast, no delights. We stayed here out of pure exhaustion... And for that, it works. Still cost is 750 baht a...

The first night in Bangkok we stayed at Erawan which is a totally competent place but at nearly twice the price and no view so we moved here the second night. Room 144 at Merry V is a gem, it has natural light and you can see some high rises as well as the cable bridge. Not bad for 420...

Spent one night here. Wouldn't spend two. Wifi didn't work and for 60bht per day costs we had to persuade for our money back ten minutes after we paid for the wifi. Also, they don't tell you the wifi can only be used by one person at one time. Upon asking to see the room I was given a key...

This place is cheap, no frills, close to the action and I recommend it if you don't want to spend more than you have to on a room in Bangkok. I will stay there each time I go through Bangkok en route to nicer places!

My room instantly made me think of prison...except they get a tv. No complaints for the price and the largish desk was handy but no power points in my room, hmmm. Wifi is now sixty baht a day, which compares a hell of a lot better to most places given I only paid 180 baht.

Located within walking distance to khao san (2 min) but without the noise. We stayed in room 305 - double fan with private bathroom for 450b. It was very basic, with a bed and small table in the large room. We liked that the window could open wide with built in mosquito net so we could leave them open at...

This place is bare bones, good value, no frills, perfect for the penny pinching backpacker. We started and ended our tour of Asia in Bangkok and stayed here each time. The staff are pretty friendly and have good English. The rooms are basic but comfy enough and work out to around $4 per person if you share a twin or...

The room price accounts for three of the four stars. The fourth one is for no roaches. People are right if they say that the staff wasn´t too friendly. ring your own lock, so you can lock your door from the outside while you are gone. One big minus: Wifi is 80 Baht per day extra, and they started to...

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.

“Get a room at the back of the building and be very specific about what you are booking (if you want plug sockets, hot water etc) because the guesthouse does offer budget rooms with none of these luxuries.”
