Where did we stay in Bangkok for this trip?
We have been to Bangkok on multiple occasions. Typically, we try to stay in the Khaosan Rd. area due to the wide range of restaurants and tourist services in that part of Bangkok. Our last time in the city we decided to stay at Baanboran. We don’t have a direct affiliation with this property or any property in Bangkok, therefore our opinion is an unbiased one. Overall, this was a pretty interesting place to stay. The property itself is quiet at night and it sort of looks like a family operated establishment with an antique wooden house in the middle of the property. The staff were nice, but spoke little English. The rooms were clean and it was about a 15 minute walk to the Grand Palace and a 10 minute walk to Khaosan Rd. It’s a a great budget choice, but if you’re looking for something a bit more refined and upscale I would recommend something else. At the time of writing it had a very respectable score of 8.1/10 based on 164 verified guest reviews.
How to get the cheapest rooms in Bangkok?
Bangkok has a massive selection of rooms to choose from. Literally, thousands of choices are spread throughout the city. Regardless of which site you use, always be sure to check the exact location of the hotel/guesthouse because some areas of Bangkok are not the best for families, etc. Try using www.agoda.com – this is the largest booking site in Southeast Asia (and Bangkok). Another popular option is Booking.com. If you are on a strict budget try using www.hotelscombined.com – this allows for quick price comparisons from the world’s leading accommodation sites. I have included links to their respective property lists for Bangkok to save you some time.
