Bangkok offers accommodation in every price range. Bangkok offers literally dozens of top class hotels offering all facilities from gym to sauna and swimming pool ranging in price from a reasonable 2,500 baht all the way up to 40,000 baht.
Boutique hotels has come to Bangkok in the form of minimalist Triple-Two Silom and, most prominently, a contemporary Asian incarnation of London’s ground-breaking Metropolitan which houses the members-only Met Bar, Shambala Spa and a yoga mat in each room. It’s already the de facto playground for the fashionable youth set ranging from Hong Kong to Paris.
Sukhumvit is peppered with mid-range accommodation, among which is the Atlanta, a 1950s time-capsule of unique charm and vegetarian delights. Near the nightlife, Tarntawan Place Hotel is very gay-friendly. Even Banglamphu’s notoriously stingy backpackers are going upmarket, with colonial-style Buddy Lodge emerging from a morass of partitioned flophouses and occasional gems like the homely wooden Barn Thai Guesthouse.
At the budget end Bangkok has hotels / guesthouses that start from approxamately 350 baht per night that offer very basic hotels with rooms with bed and a fan. For those who aspire to a slightly better feel to their accommodation, then there are plenty of mid-ranged hotels that start at a price between 600 and 1,000 baht.
