Posted by Stephen Whitfield
Medibroker finds the best health insurance plan for people travelling or living overseas and a huge amount of the people who contact us are choosing Thailand. The South East Asian country is a top choice because it offers budget backpackers and expats relatively cheap living costs compared to its Eastern counterparts. Bangkok is one of the most popular destinations in Thailand, and has an array of options when it comes to a place to lay your weary head.
We know how important location and price can be when it comes to choosing accommodation. Sometimes, the most important thing for a budget traveller is to find a hotel close to the center of the city with all the basic amenities.
Keeping that in mind we've come up with some suggestions for people looking for cheap hotels in Bangkok.
Silom City Hotel – A great cheap deal in Bangkok (Approximate $38 – August 2014)
The hotel is on Suriwong road/Silom road close to all the action of the city. Not too far from the sky train or the underground at Saladaeng station, Siam square or the famous MBK mall. The hotel breakfast includes cereals, juices, toast, chicken, noodles, tea and coffee.
Deluxe balcony suite room is spacious with a decent view of the city. (Approximate $43 – August 2014)
No outside noise from the corridor or other rooms so be prepared to sleep like an angel. The upper floors have a good view of the city, especially at night.
Pinnacle Lumpini Park – Walking distance from the underground and Embassies Street (Approximate $30 – August 2014)
Ngan Duphli has been a very popular street among foreigners coming to Bangkok, close to the underground station which gives you a chance to travel anywhere in Thailand. Close to Sukhumvit, Silom and all the main areas of Bangkok.
Nantra De Comfort Hotel Bangkok, Thailand – Live in style (Approximate $20 – August 2014)
Nantra De Comfort is located in Thong lor soi 55 right in the city center and close to the BTS. You can also walk down to the fancy décor shops in Thong lor or to some expensive Japanese restaurants. Thong lor is one of the most expensive areas in Bangkok but you should not miss even a single bit of it.
Thong lor is popular among the young crowd for partying – Clubs like Muse, Esco bar, Funky villa etc. You’ll also find many modern Thai restaurants – so it's definitely a great place to try some (if not all) authentic but modern Thai style food.
This hotel offers great value for money because of its strategic location – close to the sky train station Asok, Terminal 21 & Emporium mall, nightlife (soi cow boy) and nana area.
Chang Siam Inn – A short distance from Pratunam Market and major transport routes. (Approx. $29 August 2014)
Located in the city center, the Chang Siam Inn serves as a great base for exploring Bangkok. It is within easy reach of great shopping locations including Pantip Plaza and the Siam Paragon Mall. The area is a bustling hub and a great place to experience the pulse of Bangkok.
The Seasons Bangkok Siam – Conveniently located and near many restaurants (Approximate $30 – August 2014)
Located in the heart of the city close to Indra Square, Pantip (IT city), Central World mall and the famous boat taxi (if you fancy that). Being close to all the markets – it’s in a crowded area attracting many foreigners. The hotel is also walking distance away from Baiyoke Sky tower (Tallest building in Bangkok).
Thong Ta Resort Suvarnbhumi Bangkok – Close to the Airport(Approximate $25 – August 2014)
If you’re planning just a short stay in Bangkok and don’t want to go to the city center then this hotel is the best fit for you. You can arrange a free pick up from the airport available 24 hours. The hotel also has a souvenir shop and Thai massage at the SPA.
Western breakfast is served daily so you don’t have to worry about food, and drinks are also served at the bar.
Choosing the right hotel yourself is not that easy, however, I hope that we've given you a wide variety of options to choose from depending upon your preferred location. Good Luck for your next trip to Bangkok – The Land of Smiles
